Whay are we so silent on the majority of atrocities?

I do not believe in the "grand" conspiracy theories. In general I believe in the incompetence theory - governments are too incompetent to organise anything, never mind a grand conspiracy. There is however something more subtle taking place - a slant placed on events that take place, a manipulation of the general population to shape a "right" view of what is taking place. 
Most of the killings/murders that take place in African countries pass by with minimal comment. The condemnation of atrocities by Muslim countries and moderate Imams also receives less coverage in Western media. There is manipulation in the media taking place - I am not sure what the narrative is that they want us to believe but we are being fed information on a selective basis.

Orwell was right.
