Genocide


From the time humans existed, hatred seemed to be the dominant trait
that possessed the souls of men. It was inevitable emotions could provoke
people to engage in acts without thinking; but it was the acts that were
premeditated which were classified as evil and brutal. A. M. Rosenthal, the
author of No News From Auschwitz, described a single moment in history where
these kinds of acts were invoked. This appalling endeavor is known as genocide
which is the deliberate destruction of a national, racial or a religious group
(Winston Dictionary). Genocide is universal rather than limited to one time and
one group of people.
The Catholics in Ireland were being threatened and eliminated by the
Puritans. The typical Irish lifestyle came to an abrupt halt during the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (Lewis 9). In 1641, the Norman-Irish, who
were worried that their lands would be lost, and the native Irish, who were
forced to accept an unfamiliar culture, rebelled (Lewis 9). In 1649, Oliver
Cromwell, leader of the Parliamentarians in the English Civil war, lead the
Puritans into a bloodbath against the Catholics (Lewis 9). "He did it brutally,
massacring the Irish without mercy and called the large scale killing ‘the
righteous judgements and mighty works of God'" (Meyer 78). Thousands of

As a rule the organizing agency is the state, the victim population is a domestic minority, and the end result is the near total death of a society. The Armenian Genocide conforms to this simple definition. In 1915 the Young Turk government of the Ottoman Empire proceeded with plans to eliminate the Armenians. By 1918 it had succeeded in destroying most of th

    gorky The painter Arshile Gorky was born Vostanig Adolan in eastern Turkey. Raised in a poor Armenian farming family, Gorky\'s childhood was shaped by two disasters: the first being the massacres of 1896, the second was the genocide of 1915, that affected the entire Armenian population, and which claimed the life of Gorky\'s mother. Gorky was a seminal figure in the early years of the New York School and a largely self taught artist whose work combined both geometric abstraction and figurative s

    armenian genocide When the word genocide is perceived the thought of the Jewish holocaust is what usually comes to mind. Hitler’s war against the Jewish population was well published and placed in the eyes of almost all. Yet what of the American and Cambodian genocide. These nations had fallen into the same hell on earth but no one spoke of the horrors that lurked in their everyday life. Before the genocide of 1915 more than 2 million Americans lived in Turkey today only about 60,000 still rema

  • Human Rights Violations
    Human Rights Violations Throughout the history of humankind, man has always been hateful and prejudice towards a race or religion different from his or her own. In the early twentieth century itself, we faced atrocities such as the Armenian Massacre, the rape of Nanking and many more. One such crime against the human race that can overthrow all of them is, the Nazi Holocaust led by Adolf Hitler. After World War I, Germany was in a condition of total chaos. The Weimar Republic that was set up by

  • Armenian genocide
    armenian genocide By the late 1880\'s there were approximately 2,500,000 Armenian people living in the Ottoman Empire. Since World War I, the number of Armenians in Turkey has barely reached more than 120,000. The difference can be accounted for in the large number of Armenians who were slaughtered or forced to flee to other countries in the period from 1894 to 1921. The tension began when Armenians in the eastern provinces of the Ottoman Empire started to impress upon the people the idea of Arm

  • Preventing Genocide
    Preventing Genocide Preventing Genocide By: All through history, people have killed other people. Usually, this is just because of hatred of that one person. Unfortunately, sometimes people can have a deep-rooted hatred of an entire group of people. This hatred of people leads to genocide. Everybody knows about genocide, few know how to define it, and even fewer know what to do about it. Everyone also knows about at least one genocide: the Holocaust. However two other not-so-widely-known genocid

    Armenian Genocide Can you imagine yourself living during the time that WWI was going on? I\'m pretty sure you\'d be terrified to even walk out of your house. Like it wasn\'t bad enough that the whole world was at each other\'s throat, but to know that your country may be at the hands of another leader. A leader who may have different perspectives on every day life, with the benefit of doubt that it may be extremely foreign to you, is pretty scary. I\'m pretty sure that it would make you or anyon

    Genocide Wouldn\'t it be scary if someone suddenly decided that you should disappear because he thinks you do not have the right to live because of your race or religion? Scary yes, but definitely possible.

Unfortunately, it has happened, but do the circumstances and outcomes warrant using the term "genocide"? Based on facts about the ethnic make up of Rwanda, there is abundant proof that this is actually a case of violent, ongoing civil wars, and the use of the term "genocide" is not justified.

    Censorship In Europe Americans think of Europeans as essentially like themselves. They believe European societies are like their own-rooted in the rule of law, freedom of religion, democratic government, market competition, and an unfettered press. In recent years, however, Europeans have given up an essential liberty: freedom of speech. It is true that in the United States prevailing orthodoxies on some questions are ruthlessly enforced but it is still legal to say just about anything. Not so i
  • The Worlds Longest War
    The Worlds Longest War The World\'s Longest War Where We Are Journals practice a laudable self-censorship of criticism of religions. The most vicious devil worship is mentioned with little comment and then only in crime reporting of the atrocities committed. This is a good thing. Religious hatreds are so easily inflamed, and there is so much history of religious persecution, that we are much better off with this self restraint. Furthermore the separation of church and state is spelled out in our
