Destruction Of A Species Essay

1252 words - 6 pages

The soul cannot be eradicated of all vestiges of evil. Life itself is a paradox in which we all must accept and balance our avarice aspirations in order to maintain a serendipitous existence. When our inner monstrosity is aroused the delicate components that compose our humanity are transformed under the duress of our self- serving desires. We forsake forgiveness for revenge. We exploit the secrets of those surrounding us to bring validity to our lies. Brother against brother, sister against sister we turn to hatred, we turn to fear, we turn to genocide. Genocide, the deliberate and systematic annihilation of an individual group, not only endangers the existence of humanity but also, ...view middle of the document...

Just as a sense of superiority can be lethal so can a sense of inferiority. Inferiority complexes are defined by an acute sense of personal inferiority often resulting either in timidity or through overcompensation in exaggerated aggressiveness. These attributes are instilled in the minds of individuals internationally, spreading as fluidly as a virus, however; there is no physical quality that defines which complex attacks its host. A man with unprecedented strength can be manipulated into believing his life or beliefs are worth less than those who surround him. This in turn saturates his mind with the incantation that his rightful place is beneath those who can mold themselves to societies standards. An equal yet opposite reaction is inflicted upon those who believe their life or custom is superior to those who differentiate and so a division is conceived and a definition desired. The need to be defined has ingrained itself into society’s core throughout generations and it is through these separations that the dominance of religion, social biases, and race have usurped our morality. Although each of these factors have influenced the formation of genocide the most dominant facet is religion. For centuries religions have risen and fallen and while some temporarily captured our minds, others persevered like a shadow to a flame. Fyodor Dostoyevsky once said, “It is precisely that requirement of shared worship that has been the principal source of suffering for individual man and the human race since the beginning of history. In their efforts to impose universal worship, men have unsheathed their swords and killed one another. They have invented gods and challenged each other: "Discard your gods and worship mine or I will destroy both your gods and you!” Generation after generation mankind has viciously crusaded throughout our planet, maliciously tormenting those who opposed them in the name of religion. Yet, it is not the differences in belief that cause unrest but fear. As religious leaders battle to bring validity to their beliefs the threat of an opposing force awakens a misfigured fear. It is through this fear that corruption is bread and the mass murder of innocents chalantly overseen. In 1994 the Hutu citizens in Rwanda attacked the Tutsi, who covered over fourteen percent of their population, hastily slaughtering over eight hundred thousand people. Supported by their government officials the Hutu systematically raped and murdered woman, men, and children exterminating entire family lines. The murder campaign illustrated in Rwanda was seen world wide yet, it was ignored by policymakers in powerful countries. Twenty-five year old Denise, whose true identity...
