Spanish Conquisition of the Americas

what’s sad about the Spanish takeover of:

Central America and South America…

is,

for one…

that DISEASE (small pox) WIPED OUT 90% OF THE NATIVE POPULATION.

Subpoint

maybe the Spanish DIDN’T want to face another war… but with the reality of the Spaniards being gold hungry like debt hungry whores… I think they took advantage of the situation and claims.

and two…

that the Spanish took over the remaining population by force.

In the US:

the natives in the US had their own “wars” dealing with the influx of English-Euro immigrants [from modern day Europe].

I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S BETTER, nor should I have to try and compare them to myself… as if to compare past actions of people I don’t associate with to myself…

Basically:

English:

Bourgeois/Euro’s come in:

claim land

politely/violently/passive aggressively ‘ASK’ you to leave

do not intermix [for the most part]

in the end; give you a small portion of the land that you communally use

VS… ALL THE LAND THEY JUST TOOK

vs

Spanish:

90% disease wipe-out;

followed by a violent military take-over by military[/Proletariat-Bourgeois (Spanish)] of political leaders (natives), often by HUMILIATING VIOLENT PUBLIC FORCE.

Intermixing with the population [unlike the English, your Conquistador lifestyle didn’t allow for spouses ATM]

which

pushed forth the LEGACY OF

SPANISH [MALE] NAMES

Conclusion:

IMO, the conquistadores were in their 20’s… maybe the [English] families were to. But…

I think the Spanish were on a rage filled revenge/exploration SUCCESSFULL bout/frenzy after their bout with the:

CRUSADES.

Mixing in with the population

RESULTING IN

the population OVERTHROWING the ‘PROLETARIAT’ and re-establishing themselves as a MIXED line of PROLETARIAT conquistadors.

In one small [horrible] way… I feel so happy I have a French last name.

However, I have no idea how many of my [name branched] ancestors were complicit [in the take-over of the] Native populations.
