Those are things you consider a benefit. Many "native" people would not necessarily agree. It's your opinion, but survival is not necessarily the only or even best measure. Some would argue that their culture would have evolved without European intervention given time, as all things do.
Why do you always say Europeans? This is utter stupidity. Every person on earth was undeveloped. killing each other was the norm. Europeans were probably the least aggressive between all cultures and they still are.
Lol, that's funny. If you can't figure out that what we mean by "Europeans" then I'm not sure we can help you. They are NOT the least aggressive. If anything they've just taken to using mind games instead of direct warfare. And the mind games continue to be used for destruction and control by manipulation and proxy. They're not the only ones, just the strongest at this moment. But, everything isn't linear... just because you don't see some news story telling you what's an act of aggression or how it was carried out and why doesn't make it right. Gonna have to look past the obvious sometimes, which I know is hard bc that's the lie Europeans have told themselves and everyone else-- everything is honest and straightforward and you need physical proof or you're crazy...
Read this book: the better angles of our nature by Steven Pinker. You will get some perspective. Obviously I am not going to argue here but I used to think like you. We are by no means perfect but it’s a work in progress. It just happens that the Europeans are leading the pack in civility. We as Americans are just the less civil bully cousin.
Pppoop, yes no one is perfect, that's my point. And perfect is subjective.
Amazon, you're grouping all native cultures in that 15,000 years? Those are some measures of culture, but there are others that were contributed by other societies. The math behind these developments for example. Modern culture may have been most visible in Europe, but the root is what has provided these things and that didn't come from Europe alone, even if most history books have been written to omit that .
Why don't we ask Kyrie Irving why we should celebrate MLK day or have black history month? Blacks commit almost half of all murder in the US according to federal statistics. We shouldn't celebrate that.
