How to use savagery in a sentence?

  1. Valerie Amos:

    For more than four years, we have watched Syria descend into deeper depths of despair surpassing even what the most pessimistic observers thought possible, in the past weeks, we have seen more and more heinous acts. Innocent men, women and children killed, maimed, displaced, and subjected to a savagery that no human should have to endure.

  2. Prakhar Joshi:

    When I started collecting stories, my first few stories were very traumatic. They shook me to the core. I knew riots had happened, but I never knew the scale of the savagery.

  3. Tom Williamson:

    We can mark a day on the calendar where America has fallen to a new low. This is now the condoning of taking matters, and the law, into you own hands and going to any lengths - even jungle savagery.

  4. Howard Zinn:

    Was all this bloodshed and deceit - from Columbus to Cortes, Pizarro the Puritans - a necessity for the human race to progress from savagery to civilization? Was Morison right in burying the story of genocide inside a more important story of human progress? Perhaps a persuasive argument can be made - as it was made by Stalin when he killed pesants for industrial progress in the Soviet Union, as it was made by Churchill explaining the bombings of Dresden and Hamburg, and Truman explaining Hiroshima. But how can the judgement be made if the benefits and losses cannot be balanced because the losses are either unmentioned or mentioned quickly?

  5. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott:

    He knew that the place where MH17 came to rest was sacred and that a piece of it should come back to Australia, it was a humane and decent thing for him to know and do. It was a contrast to the savagery that brought down the plane.
