Does habitancy influence a nation's character? A look at history as well as current events may give some hint. While atrocities have taken place in every habitancy, the question hinges on whether the atrocity was supported and propagated by the citizens of the country vs a small powerful group within the habitancy.
So, Attila the Hun's atrocities shouldn't be evidence for Asian malfeasance since it was only him and his pack that did the killing. But what of the case of the French Revolution's guillotining of those of nobie birth? What of the Nazi Germany holocaust?
And while slavery in various countries is abusive to the extreme, it's goal was not to kill but to economically control, and enslaving proper or enslavement by extreme low wages and lack of any public welfare has always until some two to three hundred years ago been thought the norm instead of atrocious.
So does perpetuation of widespread atrocity relate to habitancy? If so punctilious and sanguine seems somewhat more suspect than one would think?
