Once again?

We mock and scorn

Those from before

For actions of yore!

Men of learning and wisdom

Men unlettered and unpolished

Once held persons for whatever reason

in bondage and slavery

Today the insights good from these are denigrated

All because they failed to extend to all the rights of liberty

In yet another century

Yet again the same old story

We vowed remembrance in fury

Several times those seeking control

Gathered disagreeing groups

Teaching masses that these

Yes these were the cause of pain and distress

Not content to send the scapegoats out

It was deemed best to eradicate the problem

Armenia

Ukraine

Germany

China

Currently we tend to deny or ignore what went on 

The sore is too recent and too tender to touch?

So today we again

do not report

deny it is happening

ignore

or mock

the attempted eradication of differing groups

the mildest actions are marginalization and denigration

the worst have taken to slaughter, torture and concentration camps

Whole communities not of the state religion slaughtered

Children sold into slavery

People of different sexual orientation in concentration camps tortured

Like the last century 

Denial and ignoring of reports is happening yet one more time!

    There is moral enlightenment in the western democracies. The fire in the grim migrant camp in France was started by a battle between fractions in that appalling place. Between the have nots and the have nots.

      “Moral enlightenment in the Western democracies”? What rock have you been living under? Virtually every newscast contains stories of death, destruction and victimization here in the “enlightened democracy”. If that is “moral enlightenment”, I would love to go back 1,000 or 2,000 years BEFORE the Liberal “enlightenment” began….
