Th Ottoman Empire and The Great Hunger

Thanks, Michael. Propaganda is the device used to persuade us that other people are not as 'human' as we are. Most people want peace; most people want a reasonably good life to bring up their children and families free of pain and poverty; most people are exactly like us and want what we want. There is more that unites humanity than divides it, but unfortunately this is not as obvious to most people as it should be.See More
