Some thoughts about the 12th of October
I have reading a lot of posts from USA Americans, Canadian and European People about this day. Many didn't know the history about Latinoamerican Countries, the heirs of the Spaniard Conquest, which are the true called to say their opinion. But anyway.
1. There are a lot of leftism in the current views about the thing that happened since the XV century related to America(s).
But the reality is that the Expansion began with the Portuguese reaching India through the African continent (146x) so, there will be a matter of time that any centralized State of Europe will reach the Americas in the XV or XVI. Remind that Vikings had done it in the XI century, but the lands they discovered weren't that useful for an extended situation.
2. Many of the deaths were due the sickness and plagues brought by the European than military or conquest
Like the pox, the virus of cold, etc. It could happen with all foreign person that reaches this land. The Arauco War (300 years of conflict between Mapuche and Spaniard) reached 200.000 deaths in all the time it lasted. But pox killed millions.
3. Aboriginal People weren't saints.
Do you think that the great empires are made just with good will? The aztecs had slavery. They had the flourished wars to get slaves and human sacrifices. And the incas subjugated people until they were stopped in the Maule Battle
For the subjugated people to those great empires the Spaniards were saw as another guy but better than the current lords. And the Spaniards gave them better conditions.
There are two legends: the black, and the rose. Obviously the reality was a mix of those two. But, you should ask, if Latam were mostly mestizo blood,and that had not happened in the USA, in fact the stock aboriginal blood in a current american is 1% or less. Here the % is 40% aboriginal and 60% spaniard. In that % is obviously correct thinking there was some love between two groups.
4. Hate to Spain
Outside the War OF Independence, the only people that hates the Spaniard are the leftist just to kidnap and stimulate the aboriginal people to make civil wars or guerrilla warfare. They forgot we, are their sons too, and collaborating is the best way to reach the progress in our countries. We are mestizo. Not from any part, but sons of this land as the aboriginals that came from Asia or the Spaniards from the other side of Atlantic.
If you aren't a latam member, don't speak about us. You only repeat what others said, without reading our history. So, many of your info is bad, or just a meme.
