genocide

A Quote by Thom Yorke on politics, greed, economics, environmentalism, genocide, law, destruction, spiritual, sneakers, human rights, china, violation, malls, capitalism, tesco, hands, and dirty

"It's just the law governing western politics pure blind greed - economics is an unquestionable sacred law above all humane considerations (is this just me), it is a justification for slave labour, genocide, environmental and spiritual destruction. Everyone wants their cheap sneakers and bloody stupid keyrings and plasticware above all else, and are happy to leave China unchecked, happy to condone their blatant violation of human rights. After all how can we justify our cathedral-like shopping malls and rusting capitalist monoliths, other than finding the next oppressed population and get them on the payroll? "Thank you Tesco, thank you Tesco." All our hands are dirty."

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on genocide, hitler, warfare, and humanity

Except for the scale of the operation, there was nothing unusual about Hitler's massacre of the Jews. Genocide's an old tradition, as human as mother love or cherry pie.

Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)

A Quote by sam harris on u s sins and genocide

[Short list of U.S. sins]
... start with our genocidal treatment of the Native Americans, add a couple hundred years of slavery, along with our denial of entry to Jewish refugees fleeing the death camps of the Third Reich, stir in our collusions with a long list of modern despots and our subsequent disregard for their appalling human rights records, add our bombing of Cambodia and the Pentagon Papers to taste, and then top with our recent refusal to sign the Kyoto protocol for greenhouse emissions, to support any ban on land mines, and to submit ourselves to the rulings of the International Criminal Court.  The result should smell of death, hypocrisy, and fresh brimstone.
