I think historians will call the late 20th through the early 21st centuries the era of slow Genocides.Not like the early or mid-20th century varieties. No our time's mass killings are hap-hazarded. Here, and there. On, and off.
More like the death of a Thousand Cuts.
That rather than the old school Hitler Stalin thing. So gradual that many don't even know it going on. Or if they do they're tired of the whole depressing mess, and switch the remote to something funnier.
