A Halt to Genocide
I enjoyed the spring 2002 issue of the KSG Bulletin
and particularly valued your review of Samantha Powers new
A Problem from Hell America and the Age of Genocide.
Her reconstruction of our nations failed responses to major
genocides of the last century is a powerful indictment of Americas
moral and political will. Administration after administration, she
writes, was highly inventive in excusing their noninvolvement. Imperfect
information, civil war, ancient rivalries, and state sovereignty
were all used to justify why the United States should not interfere.
She could have added our own countrys
nearly 4,000 abortions each day, which, like the other genocides
she researched, stagger the imagination. Like the atrocities she
did cite, no U.S. president has ever made abortion prevention a
priority, and no U.S. president has ever suffered politically for
his indifference to its occurrence. And, like the other genocides,
it is thus no coincidence that abortion rages on.

Bulletin a Link
I found the magazine very instructive of the
current KSG activities and informative of the alumnis post
KSG whereabouts. The KSG magazine works as a true vehicle of information
among students and alumni abroad.
