Wow thanks for that. I like hearing actual experiences that people went through in the modern era because they generally know what they're talking about. I also didn't realize one of voats main admins atko was from bosnia and had been through a war!

I 'pray' it never gets to this but the historical record suggests otherwise.

I mean it already is this way, right now, in Yemen, much of Syria, and many more countries. Venezuela is also like this, but without a hot war.

But hopefully not in the west again. But like you said the track record does not look good. Hopefully the internet will help stop the cycle, as the atrocities cannot be hidden nearly as easily as 50 years ago.
