Holocaust: can it happen again?:

 126 Carciofus, Tue, 3rd Jan '12 8:53:42 AM from Alpha Tucanae I
Is that cake frosting?
It IS happening.

So yeah, it can happen.
But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas.

I'd like to think it can't happen again in the developed world.
It was an honor

Well, that's malleable. Developed nations come with an expiration date.

Um no it doesn't. Do you know what the Great Purge even was? It refers to a specific period in March 1936 to Januray 1939. Which is the period when Stalin came in to power and used the purges to solidfy his power.

I misread your post. Since the Great Purge wasn't capitalized in your previous post, I'd assumed you were calling the entirety of the democide a purge a la the comments regarding Pol Pot. Anyway, I too think it's beside to point to argue whether anything can mirror the Holocaust in its efficacy, when the thread is clearly about organized genocide.
You are a blowfish.

So what they did in Rwanda wasn't organized genocide?

Just because they didn't have clean uniforms or professional gas didn't stop both sides of the Sri Lankan Civil war from total annihilation of whole villages into mass graves.

Let's not even begin with the systematic sweeps in Syria.

Somalia alone is it's own horror story.
Upon death, I want to be cremated and blown in the face of my enemies.
I didn't say that. In fact, I've been arguing for exactly the opposite since the beginning of this thread.
You are a blowfish.
Considering the fact that most Americans I know are decent folks, yet don't really blink when they read about all the brown people we've killed in our senseless wars, yes, yes the same human weaknesses that caused the holocaust are still alive and well.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
