It refers to an event which happened nearly a century ago under a government that no longer exists. But the response on blogs shows that what the U.S government calls it is important.
Katchkar(Cross) argues, “Accountability is important whether this genocide occurred 1 day ago or 95 years ago. As this sets up the enabling process for future genocides and giving a free “pass” to countries to forget their dark past and consequences.”
But this blogger comments, “Sometimes it’s better to move on and remember enough so that the issue doesn’t happen again.”
Is it important to re-name events which have happened in the past? Or it is better to move on?
