How to use savagery in a sentence?

  1. Serge Lecomte:

    It is cruel savagery of a kind we have rarely seen before, is it a cult? Cruelty towards animals is the precursor to cruelty towards humans.

  2. Mariana Fulger:

    Where education is lacking, there is savagery, there is a lot of naivety.

  3. 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?

  4. Charles Krauthammer:

    [Obama last night] said if you talk about the Muslims in a bad way, that's a recruiter for ISIS. Guantanamo was a recruiter for ISIS. When the fact is the cruelty and the savagery.... is the recruiter for ISIS, [The president] locates the origin of all that recruiting in what we do, and he thinks therefore, the cue is for us to do as little as possible. It’s an insane strategic view of the world, but he actually holds it.

  5. 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.
