"Approximately "200,000 people participated in the perpetration of the Rwandan genocide."

I wonder sometimes about humanity, when 200,000 people participate in something that is obviously painful to do, and see other people suffering, be able to fully go through with this. Even if people dislike/hate each other. Why doesn't any human emotion of sympathy kick in when they are brutally killing, raping, scaring other people.

quite a sad and tragic event.

I know! Its frightening to think that in some capacity we're all capable of being a part of something like this. What could push a human to feel that this is a justified thing to do?

For some reason this made me jump straight to the thought of jim jones. (James Warren "Jim" Jones (May 13, 1931 – November 18, 1978) was the founder and leader of the Peoples Temple, which is best known for the November 18, 1978 suicide of more than 900 Temple members in Jonestown, Guyana along with the killings of five other people at a nearby airstrip.) Even though he was a leader of the leader of the temple the way he influenced the minds of so many and got them all to justify on why they should all end there lives together goes to show u that with strong firm, yet trustful tone you can almost convince a crowd to do anything.
