the article implies it was the Spaniards’ fault,

It was, in a way. Europeans brought diseases that were not known in the americas.

Left out, though, is how the same diseases affected the european civilizations when they got introduced there. It was ugly in Europe, too, when that happened.

Doesn't fit the liberal message, though, so it gets ignored.

Face it, life before antibiotics and handwashing pretty much sucked.

you may want to read some of the eyewitness accounts of what the Spanish found the Mayans doing when they got there.

They were sacrificing their children and drinking their blood.

The Spaniards said enough of this $hit and then wiped out the “management” that ENDED the human sacrifice.

The fact that some of the children were malnourished or got smallpox paled in comparison to the human sacrificing that was going on.

you have fallen for the BS, politically correct, faux history being taught in government schools.
