The wicked men of the Earth enjoy the fruits of wickedness. They like to talk of "a long time has passed since then" whenever the evil that they did is brought up.
To babylon, a long time since their wickedness could be 20 years, 50 years, 100 years or more. Whenever it is about their evil, it is a long time ago.
This is a wicked excuse of Babylon. They stole a people's land, they built their nation with slave labour and brutality, and they enjoy the fruits of it today. And they have continued with their wickedness up to the present time. Just changing the forms and techniques of their wickedness. They sterilized many First Nations people of the America's only 30 years ago so they couldn't have children. They continue with their downpression of the First Nations, Africans and others.
For the people that suffered through the wickedness, it has not been a long time. The effects of that sufferation continues today in many forms.
In a couple of decades, all their wickedness of today will be excused by "it happened a long time ago". Nothing has changed.
