* In ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', it's mentioned that the way humans in general deal with hatred is by pushing it onto another person, and it's explicitly stated that Maria is special because she is able to find happiness and break the cycle. Unfortunately, even she can be pushed too far.

** The German Army's leadership promoted most War Crimes, particularly those which gave their forces practical advantages (such as the destruction of every community suspected to have given support to partisans), but disapproved of rape conducted without the use of condoms because of the risk posed by STDs. In their view 'War Crimes' were a 'Fiction' propagated by Jews, Communists, and Liberals: warfare always had to be conducted with the most brutal means possible, and imposing artificial limitations upon one's ability to strike at the enemy was sheer foolishness. Ungentlemanly conduct regarding POW or civilians of roughly comparable racial status, such as Scandinavians or Dutchmen, was frowned upon and both could be and was punished. While any and all conduct against POW or civilians of (radically) lower racial status, such as Ukrainians or Kazakhs, was acceptable some were punished for sexually assaulting racial inferiors without protection (because of the risk of STDs).

Added DiffLines:

* Studies suggest that military, police, and military police organisations with cultures of abuse tend to commit War Crimes even when the top-level leadership try to stop them. Two ''excellent'' examples are the Imperial Japanese Army and the Red Workers' and Peasants' Army (of the Soviet Union). Both had abusive cultures, with officers regularly beating their NCOs and NCOs beating the rank-and-file, and both committed numerous War Crimes against civilians. However, there were notable differences and it is worth contrasting a contemporary organisation which commited War Crimes ''without'' such a culture:
** The Red Army's leadership frowned upon and tried to curb War Crimes, rape being the most common, and most of which were committed [[SoldiersAtTheRear by the less-disciplined Non-combat/Logistical arms, which employed most of the imprisoned criminals who volunteered for military service in return for reduced sentences during the war]]. War Crimes were seen as a stain upon the Army's honor, and soldiers committing them could be and were punished wherever possible.
** The Imperial Japanese Army's leadership did not care about War Crimes regarding civilians, including rape, and promoted War Crimes regarding POW, as they regarded the execution of POW as a way to 'toughen up' their soldiers. War Crimes were seen as having no effect upon the Army's honor, and soldiers committing them were never identified or punished.
** The German Army's leadership promoted most War Crimes, particularly those which gave their forces practical advantages (such as the destruction of every community suspected to have given support to partisans), but disapproved of rape conducted without the use of condoms because of the risk posed by STDs. In their view 'War Crimes' were a 'Fiction' propagated by Jews, Communists, and Liberals: warfare always had to be conducted with the most brutal means possible, and imposing artificial limitations upon one's ability to strike at the enemy was sheer foolishness.

* In RedDeadRedemption, Abraham Reyes describes the sorry state of his country in a private conversation, and suggests that the apparent BigBad of his own struggle, Colonel Allende, is not actually fully responsible for everything that's happening. In sharp contrast to his rather vacuous public speeches, he says that the spiralling cruelty of government troops is a result of this trope. Unfortunately, this uncharacteristically reflective moment [[MoodWhiplash gets derailed rather suddenly]] when he compares it to "a father who beats his son, so his son [[{{Squick}} takes the dog outside and rapes it.]]" [[PlayerCharacter Marston]] wondering why such a specific example might occur to Reyes puts something of a damper on any more meaningful discussion between them.
