Genocide across the World
By-Ryan Calland-Scoble
Genocide is a word used to describe widespread extermination or attempted extermination of a nation, race, religion, ethnic group. This is the well known meaning of genocide but only the United Nations council can decide what genocide is and the outlines of which is considered genocide. The following are examples:
• killing members of the group;
• causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
• Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
• imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; and
• Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
But this information is not all reliable and has not been fully proven it’s only stated, but if it was exactly the story it shows that the criminals have the same thinking patterns and very little difference between them.
But genocide has existed for thousands of years and there are many cases of mass murder and extermination, the furthest that date back go to witch hunts that started in the middle ages http://www.gendercide.org/case_witchhunts.html. Strangely enough the origin of this has developed in Europe, most cases of genocide are in the continents borders and the only answer is, is that Europe has the most countries and the more countries the more religions and the more of that the more conflicts will occur.
The real changes that have been taken upon genocide have been that it is more realistic and more devastating over the years, because of the weapons used and the general concept of genocide and mass murdering. And because these words have been invented the law must be updated which also leaves many dictators and mass murderers to their fate.
