Serious question: were the native tribes really doing much of anything with America? Don't get me wrong, it's sad that so many died from disease, but they didn't even have basic metal working before outsiders showed up. The most advanced civilization in the Americas was still practicing human sacrifice and cannibalism. Is it really so wrong to have ended all that in favor of building a civilization with the industriousness to reach the moon? - Bret Alan
let's not forget all the species Natives drove to extinction, so don't
give me this "They're more in tune with nature" crap when they wiped out
mammoths, mastadons, sabre-toothed cats, horses...
