Genocide became a household term. Nowadays everything is a genocide. Sinking of Titanic was a genocide.
I think Coloroso should pick a hobby better suited to her credentials than writing about genocides and history.
The book is an embarrassment to her, why did she do it? I don't understand. Why belittle yourself willingly in front of the whole world? The book is so simple-minded that it is a disgrace to the paper it is printed on.
Coloroso is fluent in cliché-speak: "necessity is the mother of creativity," "us and them," "me, mine, more" etc.
She plugs, shamelessly, her previous work "The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander" which is the cliché of all clichés.
The idea is this: If you reward your children for good behaviour they will become genocideers.
"To begin to fathom genocide, the place to start is not with conflict but with bullying." No, Ms. Coloroso, the place to start is not bullying, the place to start is the inability to accept the equality of all genes (hence the term gene-ocide). Millions of Jewish people weren't murdered because the Germans were bullies as children. They were murdered because Nazis thought that German genes were better than the genes of the Jewish people. It happened because of "race," not because how Germans were treated when they were children.
Genocide has everything to do with race (genes) and nothing to do with any of your simplistic theories.
This book is an insult to 6 million innocent victims of the Holocaust.
