In reviewing the movie "Avatar" for The Guardian the British journalist
George Monbiot wrote a shocking article about the genocide of natives in
America; see

Milton had already described it in PL 11.691-697:

... and subdue
Nations, and bring home spoils with infinite
Manslaughter, shall be held the highest pitch
Of human glory, and for glory done
Of triumph, to be styled great Conquerors,
Patrons of mankind, gods, and sons of gods,
Destroyers rightlier called and plagues of men.
