Whose Life is it anyway

Updated on January 18, 2008

I have recently started reading contemporary political history of the world. Am shocked beyond words! If you thought that the persecution of the Jews and the world wars are the only "mass killings" that happened, you are wrong. There are thousands and thousands of people killed right NOW, and a lot more living sub-human or rather sub-animal lives in the world right, at this moment!

The Uganda, Rwanda, Cambodia, Vietnam, Congo, Somalia, Sudan and the list goes on! It shows the basic animalistic instincts in man as well as the apathy of the developed/developing countries towards the under developed. All men are born equal, but some are more equal than the rest! "Human rights" of select few are more important than the innocent lives of the rest! Hundreds of them are killed without blinking an eye and nobody would even know or notice! (This reminds me the mass culling of chickens when the chicken guinea struck!!)

Did u know that the Hutu tribe of Rwanda has killed the Tutsi men, women and children, with the aim of exterminating the Tutsi tribe from the face of earth as early as 1994? It was so organized and systematic that 8 -10 lakh ppl were killed in 100 days, while the world watched and calculated the pros and cons of interfering! There are similar stories all around, where in a single camp in village there are 40,000 rape victims (No points for guessing that most of the cases are of gang rape) At a place where there is no respect for life, where people are routinely killed or starved to death, speaking of women's rights/health might even sound preposterous! I have been reading wiki extensively about the region and I shall share with u the contents! At the end of it one cannot but agree with the ingenuity Calvin.

Hobbs: "Do you believe in the devil? You know, a supreme evil being dedicated to the temptation, corruption, and destruction of man?"

Calvin: "I'm not sure that man needs the help."

      Thanks for this Hub. As a refugee from one of the mentioned countries(Somalia), it astonishes me how stupid or heartless the populations of developed countries, with regards to understanding what goes on in the less developed countries. When a financial crisis hit Iceland we all hear about it.....even on Conan O'brien. However, you dont hear about killing, in Sirra leone, Ethiopia, eritrea...bolivia, etc.

      You have punched home a factor of life that is terrible to behold.

      Every day this is happening. Nothing ever seem to be done to stop all these horrors.
