Hutu Role, Tutsi Role

Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind.

J.F.K, 1961

We have been watching a film entitled Hotel Rwanda for the last two meetings in one of my Philosophy classes. Genocide was never part of my vocabulary or I just did not make it part of my vocabulary. I believed that such word would never exist in our world today.

Hotel Rwanda explicitly relayed the story of a guy named Paul in the Hutu-Tutsis conflict in Rowanda. The story described how thousands of Tutsis were deliberately killed during the conflict in Rowanda. Just imagine watching a exhibition of barbaric atrocities you can never think of (i dunno how to reconstruct this one, excuse me). How about seeing a car driving its way on a bumpy-road-with-piles-of-dead-flesh.

A lot of innocent people were involved in the 'war' but these people have no choice but to be part of the 'war'... they have no choice but to wait until the so called 'war' is over.

Engaging into a war does not give man any good. It only makes things worse.

I remember a quote from The Simpson's, "The world would be a much happier place with no lawyers."

I read something, it went this way "People need to be cruel sometimes, in order to be kind the entire humanity". I just hate the idea of engaging into war or seeing a berserk terrorist killing innocent people but things like these are inevitable.

Anyway, you have a nice blog; worth reading and nice layout. I'm here by accident.

So you're taking two philo subjects? Philosophy of human person is better than philosophy of religion.
