Barbaric Veneer Layered History Of This World
if we consider barbaric veneer history of this world?
case study horrific inhumanity of humankind
appalling cruelties upon innocent others inflicted
cop out indifference of people to other people
reviewing blood spore past historical race track record
empire bragged torture techniques slavery genocides inflicted
across centuries millennias from distant dawn of civilizations...
and before from stone ages before time recorded
clear patterns of development? are fast established!
constantly bigger better weapons are produced!
more viciously refined deadly weapons amassed
in perpetual search of ever more lethal killing techniques!
mass murder warfare is elevated to industrial process!
I think even in the coldest most analytical indifferent light,
of historical casual retrospective analysis crimes human history,
incorporates premeditated wars slavery tantamount to cruelty...
calculated brutality of irredeemable unforgivable nature
yet God still declines to judge us postpones judgment?
do we accountable grant pardon to atrocious crimes past?
