I watched a documentary today. The subject of this particular documentary? The Spanish Conquest of the Incan Empire. Many people weep over this historical period in American History because they see it as an atrocity. But as a Darwinist, I feel no remorse. As human beings we are animals and if you can’t see that history is proof that survival of the fittest is the law of nature then there’s nothing I can do to help you. You’re ignorant and you have no understanding of the world.
You’d rather live in your little politically correct paradise. A paradise where everyone lives in a wonderful utopia where all countries get along. Well, guess what?!!? They don’t and you can’t blame the Spanish because if anyone else had come along they would have done the same. Spanish people aren’t inherently war mongers! Don’t demonize them for doing what all cultures do! The Incans were conquering and killing each other long before we “evil white folk” every got there!
When developing civilizations, still in the infant years of their technological advancement, come into contact with societies superior to their own, genocide ensues. While examining the fossil remains in what is now modern-day Peru, a number of long dead Incan soldiers were uncovered with fractured skulls caused from bludgeoning weapons. These weapons resembled those used by the Incans themselves. They surmised that some less powerful Incan tribes must have formed a military alliance with the Spaniards against the Incan Empire.
Once again, this stands as nothing but proof that you can’t simply blame the Spanish for all the violence that took place against the Incans. Other Incan tribes were more than happy to join the Spanish, seeing the Incan Empire as oppressive dictators who had more than likely been brutalizing and dominating them for centuries! But to be fair, I will make a couple of critiques of the Spanish if only to prove that I’m not completely biased towards the side of the Western view point.
In the chronicling histories the proud Spaniards made no mention of their Indian allies. Curious to think that they would seek to award themselves all the credit. All the valor. All the spunk. And all the glory. I’m quite alright if the Spanish want to tell the story from a biased point of view, because I personally don’t think that any point of view is without bias.
Yet falsifying history? That is a completely different story! I would not condone them changing history or under reporting the facts just to fit their own narrative. That, my friends, is called lying. And no matter how biased you think I am towards one side or the other, I would never lie to win an argument. It just takes all the fun out of it.
