well lets see, 2000 years ago no one claimed to have landed on the moon.
We couldn't build skyscrappers. And devistating a landscape with heavy equipment was, lets face it. Impossible without say. Heavy equipment run by
motors Such as cranes that could actually carry the weight instead of the imagine 10,000 slaves pulling on a hemp rope like its some amazing
unbreakable spider silk wrapped rope.
Sure, Il bite and say that in the distant passed we had electricity and some advanced technology.
But as of current history, accepted by everyone even the drones who fuel the economy blindly.
They all know this time is not like any other time.
I mean, pick any date in history 2000-4000 years ago that showed people droping explosive bombs over cities?
Or maybe show me another genocide like the Native Americans and the south Americans?
Can't? Right because there's never been a society of 100 million people to drop like flies to what they are now.
Pick a society any society besides the natives of course who had so much happen to them? You can't because it was the most barbaric scenario to happen
in recorded human history.
There has never ever been any other cultures on this planet in recorded history with a population as high as 100m to lose over 90% of its population
in less than a century. I challenge you to find a comparing nation because you won't.
No ammount of genocide today will ammount to what happened there.
You think Hitler was bad? 6 million Jews and others? Try multipuling that number 16.66666666666667 Because that's more accurate to the T. 100/6=
16.666 ect and that's close to every native american that was living on the continent during that time. That's only North america too. I susspect
nearly 100M lived in South America as well.
Spanish butchered them all, There arn't many authentic south american Aztecs around because they were wiped out.
Lots of Hespanic people who are decendants of the spanish that conquered are claiming to be from the long lost tribes of the Maya. Which i think is a
little funny considering they killed them all... But w/e Those mayan elders ancestors came on a boat in the 1500-1600 so i donno what their trying to
play with the *this is our land* card. You can see the obvious physio characteristics of the hespanic throughout what ever mayan cultures survived to
this day. Not many Native American looking like mayans, I'm not even trying to be racist either because i grew up in a Northern Native American
And non of them look Hispanic. EItherway. There's plenty of suffering going on right now. But not on the level it has been in the passed.
No one goes to such great lenghths to wipe out a culture as the europeans and the spanish so theroughly that they remain under 10% of the population.
in a population filed with 331 million people in north america roughly estimated alone. less than 10% are natives to the land where some 90% percent
I can't think of anytime in recorded history the population has been so high. Yet the natives population being so low.
Times do change and the land changes with it. The actions sometimes the same but he methods and ambitions change.
Nowadays as mentioned. No ones trying to carve up an entire population the likes of which scarred the natives. The tragies in the middle east don't
even ammount to it because they still own their land... And they still have a billion or something people living in the area.
In rough estimates close to 1000M people live there so, yeah its bad but. They will survive and mantain their culture.
Everyone in the middle east is just doing fine with the millions of citizens residing in those countries.
It`s a good thing genocide from the passed hasn`t shaped how we dictact the future.
Hopefully the slaughter of the Native south and northern americans will never occure to any other nation of tribes again.
Not like that... such a blood bath.
To put that into perspective, That's an entire landmass wiped out. That's like going from the western tip of russia and wiping out as many people as
you can on your way to britian. Then moving south into Africa. A whole continent devistated.
Let that seep in for a moment.
