How does Diamond describe the reasons for the population explosion across Africa today rather than in the past?
How many people were killed in Rwanda during the genocide? How does this match up to other instances of genocide around the world (Diamond make some calculations, please feel free to share).
How does Diamond explain root causes for genocide that are not strictly social? He makes a distinction between ethnic violence and other causes of violence in Rwanda.
Is high population density an unequivocal sentence to poverty and violence? If your answer is yes, please elaborate. If your answer is no, please give an example of a society that has high population density and social success.
Please discuss characterization of Rwanda when we said, “…modern Rwanda illustrates a case where Malthus’s worst-case scenario does seem to have been right.”
Please spend some time reflecting on what you’ve read here and learned about Rwanda. I’m tempted to give you more of a prompt here, but I’ll refrain and allow you to share your thoughts and feelings. All are welcome here.
