Crimes against humanity
Who are they?
By such as "we"
The purposeful injury, to the point of death, of another "group" one feels inferior and not "worthy" of the rights and privileges "your" subset deserves. As good a definition as any for the oft used phrase, "Crimes against humanity."
Oh, we have no qualms at the labeling of the villains associated with the heinous misdeeds of the past (slavery, the holocaust, aboriginal mistreatment etc), however, there are two open displays happening now (one fairly new, the other not) and they too deserve a hearing.
First; in the state I reside, during this "crisis" having to do with the "sickness" from the east (manufactured, in my eyes) there are certain "protocols" which seem to purposely push towards death those who dare not be, let's say, injected. Yes, even though there are a growing number of "treatments" that could help, at least early on, these are officially denied. Therefore, when the afflicted finally gets to the point of extremes (which some, unfortunately do) their likelihood of death increases. In other words, because of the government sanctioned denials...some will, and have died. This injustice needs attention, and I suspect this will happen when sanity resurfaces.
And the second; abortion. Or more accurately, infanticide. With modern determinants (although it wasn't hard to perceive already) the innocent "life" in the womb has been shown to be fully human and worthy of protection. However, under the classic definition of the "antagonist" there are some who will not acknowledge these "persons" and who therefore demand the "right" to exterminate them at will.
So, as we ponder "Crimes against humanity" past, and hopefully expand our view to include the obvious inclusions now, the question arises, What will be done? We'll know soon enough.
The poem continues...
...So be careful, "Judge"
With your gavel high
And your verdict to proclaim
For for good or ill
Your actions will
Speak your name
