the killing fields

This temple houses the skulls of the people who were executed during the Cambodian genocide back in the ’70s. Basically the same story we’ve heard over and over again…

Man thinks he knows what’s best for a society. Sees mass murder and assimilation as the answer. Death to those who don’t comply — sounds very familiar.

I think this is why the Cambodian people are so welcoming of other cultures. They’ve conquered so much as a society and they want to re-identify themselves as a peaceful, loving nation that upholds the traditional Buddhist beliefs.
