Well sure, I am AWARE, that what I am doing is not normal, not simply REASONABLE. But NOR WAS ANYONE, ANYONE!!!! that Samantha Power seems to find was significantly helpful in prior Genocides. Just finished her book. Anyone that wants to have a prayer of Saving Darfur, and Restoring Darfur MUST read this book. It is a Godsend. ("A Problem From Hell," about the Genocides of the last 100 years and why they never have been stopped.)

So, Page 536, the last page of this extraordinary work on Genocide (last 100 years), how does she end? "They (her heroes) knew that it was individuals who would have to make a difference, which was not the same as believing that they would. They were usually branded "emotional," "irrational," "soft," or "naive." Many of them saw their careers destroyed by the stands they took. Some crumbled... How can it be that those who fight on behalf of these principles are the ones deemed unreasonable?"

She concludes, "George Bernard Shaw once wrote, "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man." AFTER A CENTURY OF DOING SO LITTLE TO PREVENT, SUPPRESS, AND PUNISH GENOCIDE, AMERICANS MUST JOIN AND THEREBY LEGITIMATE THE RANKS OF THE UNREASONABLE."
