Worse Than War

WORSE THAN WAR documents Goldhagen’s travels, teachings, and interviews in nine countries around the world, bringing viewers on an unprecedented journey of insight and analysis. In a film that is highly cinematic and evocative throughout, he speaks with victims, perpetrators, witnesses, politicians, diplomats, historians, humanitarian aid workers, and journalists, all with the purpose of explaining and understanding the critical features of genocide and how to finally stop it.

    I know of no time in recorded human history when there has been no mass murders and genocides. I don’t understand how any sensible person could truly think there ever will be such a time. At least as long as humans are humans.

      recorded history is what about 6,000 years? Amoungst cultures that have never encountered an empire genocidal warfare is unknown. The first empire began about 6,000 years ago in Suma in modern day Iraq, Sria, Turkey. The agricultural cultures that led to these types of cultures are agricultural societies which began 10,000-12,000 years ago. Modern day Humans have been around for about 200,000 years so for at least 95% of human history genocidal warfare has been completely unknown. Thus genocide is not a byproduct of human nature but of modern cultures.

      This human nature is evil is utter nonsense it is a byproduct of cultures that have become viral and used as a justification for the insanity they represent.
