Human Depravity

Just watching a program on Hitler. I've seen and read loads on WW2 and Hitler etc but it absolutely melts the brain that anything like that could have happened especially under 80 years go. The Ghettos, (184 calories per person per day), the extermination of disabled, Jews etc etc.

The mind truly boggles. Such hatred and cruelty (and complete madness !!)

Can there ever have been a worse period in human history ?

The timescale is the key thing. I dont understand either, although I'm sure that there are complicated arguments and reasons why, that people who are still alive today bought into that shit

Steven Pinker, in his latest book, makes the (to me) surprising claim that the 20th Century was the least violent ever.

Sadly this sort of stuff goes on today in some forms - just not on mainland Europe, and not on the industrial scale the Nazis created (although some deniers still refuse to accept it.)

The majority of Germany went along with it but not through choice.It still seems surprising that about a decade later we were involved in sporting links .

The bit I never quite get about Leopold is how basically so few people know about it.

The problem with the 20th century was that more mechanized ways were developed for killing people. On the Nazis, I've visited Munich and having been to the Bavarian mountains and also to Dachau, it was hard to reconcile such an area of natural beauty with the origin of such human cruelty.

Agree with these sentiments.

What's really depressing, is that the USSR was even worse.

Don't need to read the article to know its true.

British imperialism killed many millions more than Hitler or Stalin.

British Imperialism caused the deaths of around 30 million Indians in the 1800s.

But they got some decent roads and shit and the Brits taught them how to make proper curry with rancid meat which they now sell back to us so every cloud and that.

For killing the largest percentage of their own population I think Pol Pot must be close to the top (or bottom) of the pile.
