Apparently, Umair, you didn’t spent a lot of time in history class —really, more dehumanization than during the slaughter of the American Civil War and slavery, the humiliation of the Jim Crow period, the killing machine that was WWI, or the starvation of the Depression of the 1930s, or the worldwide death and concentration camps of WWII, or the poisoning of Vietnam. Why today is a cakewalk (so far) compared to the not so distant past.

Jim Ridgway, Jr. military writer — author of the American Civil War classic, “Apprentice Killers: The War of Lincoln and Davis.” Christmas gift, yes!
