That is a good insight. We had the opportunity to bring knowledge, medicine and technology to the lands we conquered. Instead we took every advantage. That is a shame and we’ll never get a second chance to do it differently. My frustration is with the disproportionate critical focus on the historical conquests of Europeans just because they were more effective at it by far than their competitors.
