Is there any way to justify the Indian Removal Act and the subsequent Trail of Tears?
Or did you mean a good reason?
Yeah, we had better armies. Vae Victis. Woe to the Vanquished.
Yeah. We're in, you're out, and that's life. Conquerors need no justification.
Might does not make right
If you have the might, you decide what's right. The Indians knew this well...they practiced that philosophy on each other, even after we came into the picture.
So your a social Darwinist?
I'm a realist. Strong group of people conquers weak group of people and takes their stuff. That's history in a nutshell. The very fact that we exist and Neanderthals don't is because Homo Sapiens were stronger than them in all the ways that mattered.
So your a social darwinist and you derive moral from power
Cool. Good to know.
Yes. Without the Indian Removal Act, @DoctorWasdarb would have no purpose in life.
I like Doc but that is funny lol
As do I. Although I disagree with him on most things, he’s always very respectful to me. I definitely appreciate that.
There was still slavery. Don't worry, there was plenty to be upset about
You might not have been born had it not happened
Well, the Ask Indians To Kindly GTFO Act didn’t work so....
Not with today’s standards.
