Genocide is deliberate murder, not abuse or torture. Look it up yourself, ask Siri or talk to Holocaust survivors. Don’t play words games which are intellectually dishonest. It’s bad enough what’s occurring and it will not stand. But don’t add insult to injury or insult the intelligence of your readers. It’s simply unnecessary in this case. We know what’s happening despite your thinking of us as fools. We don’t need it spelled out. Your writing is patronizing, sir!
