Genocide and Other Atrocities have been isolated from one another because of the enormous gravity of the two different high-level threats to humanity, threats #6 and #7 respectively, as validated and priorities in the UN High-Level Panel Report,  A More Secure World–Our Shared Responsibility–Report of the Secretary-General’s High-level Panel on Threats, Challenges and Change.

Genocide focuses on the extermination of an entire group.  There is no finer site for the study of genocide than that created by Dr. Greg Stanton, Genocide Watch.

Other Atrocities focus on categories of crimes against humanity that include trade in women and children, trade in body parts (for which people can be involuntarily kidnapped or if in prison, operated on against their will, or the lesser but still atrocious harvesting of organs without permission, e.g. by the Israeli’s in Haiti and my multiple groups offering financial incentives without full information or post-operative guarantees).  This is not to be confused with medical tourism.  Sweat shops are not quite in Other Atrocities (in our view) but slavery is, see for example Review: Nobodies–Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy.  Lynching, extrajudicial killings, and comprehensive repressive racism is an Other Atrocity until it turns into a sustained campaign of violence against a specific group, e.g. Israel against the Palestinians.

Democide or “death by government” is a term that seeks to distinguish between genocide (killing them all) and the other atrocity of killing enough of them so that they all leave, a form of ethnic cleansing that leaves open the door for forced massed migration, itself an Other Atrocity.   A most interesting aspect of Democide is its “routine” nature; opinion varies on whether the death of roughly 80 million people from failed or mis-guided government policies including those of the U.S. Government that have both increased poverty in America–as well as assorted injustices–and destroyed hope world-wide with unjustified support to Israel and 41 of the 44 dictators, many of whom have come to power with US complicity in the overthrow of legitimate indigenous regimes more committed to the public interest and their indigenous public.  See among many other references  Killing Hope–U.S. Military and C.I.A.
