I'm not sure if anyone is following the events in Myanmar, but the situation with the Rohingya is reaching genocidal levels. The Muslim minority group in the outer regions of the country is being systematically killed, removed from their homes, women raped, tortured and, overall, simply attempted eradication. Meanwhile, the de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, has maintained the accounts are overblown and, generally, ignored the plight of these people. This despite the fact that she was herself a cause celebre for decades, she's been downplaying the significance of the military abuses and dismissing of the claims of widespread persecution, blaming the Rohingya instead. The point here being that Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, status has been completely compromised by her lack of action and condemnation of genocide within her own country. It also warrants a closer look at her life, so celebrated, which may not be quite as worthy of adoration as once thought. The idea pushes me to think of other people who have been so well like and respected for their efforts, but later revealed to be a fraud. Along with Suu Kyi, one to add to the list, for me, would be Mother Theresa, who was more harmful to the poor of Calcutta than helpful. Any others?
