dear young mc

-And that's why the barbaric "law of the jungle" will always be crushed and never be part of the civilised world of democratic societies and its rule of law we know in the West. -

how do you think "the civilised world of democratic societies" were established and formed all at the beginning?

go watch Once Upon a Time in America

go read

SPANISH HISTORY IN SOUTH AMERICA

FRENCH HISTORY IN AFRICA

BRITISH HISTORY IN SOUTH EAST ASIA

AMERICAN HISTORY ITSELF AS A WHOLE

RUSSIAN HISTORY IN THE CAUCASUS AND CENTRAL ASIA

TURKISH HISTORY IN EUROPE

JAPANESE HISTORY IN MANCHURIA

GERMAN HISTORY IN WW2

THE HISTORY OF ROMAN EMPIRE

EVEN SCANDINAVIAN HISTORY DURING THE VIKINGS TIMES

EVEN READ WHAT THE ANCIENT GREEKS DID TO THE TROJANS

GENOS (GREEK) AND CIDE (LATIN) COMES FROM THESE ROOTS AND ALL OTHER NATIONS HAVE WELL LEARNED FROM THESE TWO SOCIETIES.

etc etc the list goes on indefinitely.

no one has clean hands.

"barbaric law of the jungle" is unfortunately the holly fountain of ALL "CIVILIZED WORLD"

i sincerely wish there was a world without borders and states and armies and violence

i sincerely wish there was a world with respect and peace and justice and tolerance

i sincerely wish there was a world with happiness and joy and safety and resources

if you are going to condemn all violence of all societies in history i am with you.

if you are going to keep a side and jaundice by not mentioning atrocities of a cultural hemisphere but will blame the other cultural hemisphere as the only bad guys i am not with you.

no one is more barbaric or more civilized than the other

we all have our sins and merits
