About America's genocide of 100 nations, Sivad wrote:Didn't the Muslims do precisely that for like centuries? Didn't the Aztecs and the Incas do that same shit too? Which group of rabid humanimals didn't do that shit? I'm sure there must be one or two that didn't but I doubt it was for lack of trying. The only ones who didn't were the ones who couldn't.
There are no victims in history.
I post this because it is a common opinion of people in rich countries that were created by genocides, like the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Israel. "What was done by my forefathers was normal and healthy."
Being a product of one of those genocides myself, (the deportation of the Acadians 1755-56), I have to question whether the intentional destruction of a culture and people (to further the economic advantages of the genociders) really is normal and healthy. I'm more inclined to think of this as a horrible kind of cannibalism that is a result of industrial man's callousness, poor lifestyle, and modern propaganda.
But let's just pretend - for the sake of argument - that genocide really is a healthy and normal way to get success.
Should China, as soon as it has the technological advantage, seek to kill off 300+ million Americans and replace them with 500 million Chinese? That would be more happy people to unhappy people by a ration of 5 to 3. Overall, would this be a "good thing?"
Perhaps they Chinese could keep a few million "Americans" alive in plexiglass-enclosed zoos, where Chinese children could feed them McDonalds and Coca Cola while observing them hobbling their way in and out of fake shopping malls and across fake parking lots?
Perhaps some of the "Americans" could sell hand-made Nikes and Adidas in Chinese railroad terminals?
Is that the message you "genocide is normal and healthy" posters are trying to put out there? That the fastest and surest way to be successful is to kill and steal from other nations, while removing and destroying any knowledge or wisdom that these "insignifant nations that we killed" might have had to share with us?
Do you suggest that other nations follow your advice? And do you live in permanent fear of the same thing that your ancestors did to others happenning to you? Is that why the USA (and Israel) are armed to the teeth? Because there might be "people like yourselves" out there?
Magical thinking helps people to accept poor governance.
That's why religion and entertainment media are so popular.
