"The evil that men do lives after them:
The good is oft interred with their bones." -- Julius Caesar

The record of humankind's cruelty to fellow humans is a long, sad story. Perhaps the most appropriate reaction is compassion for all peoples, for their inabilty in times of war to resist the powers of darkness and persecution of enemies. The following sites detail the imprisoning of Japanese-Americans in concentration camps, the atrocities Japan committed in Asia--still unacknowledged, the American refusal to prosecute war criminals who could aid development of our own biological weapons programs, and other examples of the universal tendency toward cruelty.
