Radical Empathy And Germany’s Forgotten Genocide

This article explores as experiment in confronting American debates over the role of guns. By getting together people who have been deeply affected, positively or negatively, by guns, the experiment sought to see if minds could be changed. The results? Interesting.

Another example? Japan’s policies on gun control, which have pretty much reduced gun violence. Which one would reduce deaths faster? National heart-to-hearts or enforced policy?

 

 

Fascinating look at a rarely remembered episode in African history, the genocide perpetrated by German colonists against local tribes in Namibia in the early 20th century. After decades of political neglect, momentum is building for domestic and international recognition of this tragedy’s place in history.
