On Guatemala

One should not rejoice for the death of a fellow human being, but I will make an exception in this case. In the 1990s I went to Guatemala to interview survivors of the genocide orchestrated by this man, Efrain Rios Montt. I published some of my my findings in Chapter 12 of my book ‘Social Injustice: Essays in Political Philosophy’ (Palgrave 2012). I don’t think there is a way to express the opposite of RIP, but that’s what I’m thinking.
