I would disagree. I don't see how "white man's" culture is worse than say that of the Aztecs, who committed mass murder just so the sun continued to rise, or the cannibalistic African tribes, or the Native Americans who warred with each other, or the Egyptians who were slave owners, and so on and so forth. All cultures have their bad, along with the good.

I didn’t watch the video yet, since those kinds of sites are blocked while at work, but I don’t think it matters, I can pretty much guess how it goes.
White man barges into an untouched indigenous tribe who’s been living freely, happily and successfully for THOUSANDS of years. Give them trinkets and food to earn their trust and acceptance then BAM! Begin the westernization process. Introduce our culture, our religions, our behaviors, our history, our diseases, all while slowly tearing down their own way of life. Who the F**K do we think we are? What right do we have to assume dominance over them? It makes me sick.
It’s a matter of jealousy really. We’re jealous. We envy them because they have something we don’t, and we can’t stand it. The have freedom. Freedom from religious oppression, freedom government rule, freedom corporate control, freedom from taxes, money, insurance, laws, media, fashion, technology, social anxiety, trends, stress, pollution . . . the list goes on and on. So we seek them out, in the name of “good will and Christian faith”, and we infiltrate their communities. We show them our way of life, with all its pretty bells and whistles, and we trick them into assimilation. At least we stopped killing them outright.
