economic sanctions

most people do not understand
what economic sanctions are.

sanctions are more deadly than corona
and can easily last a decade.

a rich country like russia might survive them
but small and poor countries suffer greatly.

in combination with media violence
an entire culture is destroyed slowly in silence.

sanctions are a modern genocide
which punishes the weakest and enforces dictators.

since there is sufficient historic data on the effect of sanctions
i wonder why they are still used.

if politicians had a roadmap to a better world and were smarter
they could have figured out a kinder more effective method.
