Genocide, Law and Money
Program #SIMC002. Recorded in Washington, D.C. on March 23, 1994.
In genocides, "The impact of law and money is much greater than people realize," argues Simpson. He discusses the genocides of the Armenians and the Jews. Economic gain, Simpson says, "creates a constituency for genocide," among the general non-ideological population. Corporate looting and property seizures are key components of mass murder campaigns.
