    @ R-Ape

    Lemkin defined genocide as follows: "Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups."
    Are you familiar with the atrocities carried out by Cromwell against the idigenous inhabitants of Ireland?
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    How long ago did Cromwell carry out those actions vs. the behaviour of the Japanese Imperial Army.

    That's the fucking difference.

    Perhaps if someone made a rising sun version of these, then everyone could be happy.

    Oh wabbit, you do like to suck up to mods don't you

    DerAus was implying i was butthurt due to the 800 years of tyrany perpetrated by the English on my people (the Irish)

    Infact I was replying to R-Ape's direct question about English acts of genocide against the Irish, to which he pretty much mirrored Chonan's sentiments with regards to Japanese genocide in Korea, ie it was long ago and no one cares

    If you can't keep up, keep out
