I'm sure the Native Americans in both the northern and southern hemispheres who were wiped out by European colonists are truly grateful for having their living conditions 'drastically improved'.

Listen to the first few minutes of the interview of Orson Welles. I think it's relevant.


Orson & Dick shmooze about tv interviewers - YouTube

If you believe that European colonialism had a net positive effect on the lives of people who were subjugated then you do not know the first thing about the history and legacy of colonialism.
Yeah that's why millions of third-world people today try and flee to European-based countries...funny how I never hear of people fleeing to Africa to better their lot in life....and the ones who do, like Marcus Garvey and his flock, return to America after they realize their error.

The majority of Native Americans were killed by disease, not by warfare. If you read about what happened to the Native Americans from an objective source (i.e. not from a racist, liberal, white Christian-male hating source) you'll learn that overall the Europeans treated the Native Americans well. They intermarried with them, stopped their barbaric practices of human sacrifice, and came up with ideas such as "International Law" to make sure they were treated well.

So what was WW2 about, when whites killed tens of millions of whites? What was the issue there?

How could the Europeans civilize the Native Americans when they did not civilize themselves? The Europeans fought ridiculous war after ridiculous war in Europe amongst themselves until they nearly got to the point of genocide in Europe itself. Europeans butchering Europeans. Care to explain that?

War is something that humans of every race have done since the beginning of time and will continue to do forever...you should really read about the various wars between the Native Americans themselves.

Those "ridiculous" wars in Europe in the last century were caused by leftists/Communists....funny how the liberals conveniently ignore that fact....the Marxists killed at least 50 million people last century. It always amused me when I saw douchebags in NYC wearing Che t-shirts....he was a worthless bum who was responsible for murdering at least one million people, including score of priests/nuns who had dedicated their lives to helping the poor.

How did a thread on obnoxious kids on the subway become a world history lesson?

Imagine that, people growing up on continents ravaged by the European colonial powers for centuries, where national borders were arbitrarily drawn as the natural resources were divied up to be shipped back to Europe, end up having a hard time. It's all the brown peoples' faults.

You don't get it at all.

The Axis powers were leftist/communist? LOOOOOOOOOL

What about the European powers during WWI? They certainly were not leftist/communist.

Get educated.
