What should the activities of European explorers be viewed as?

Africa should go back to colonization. It was way better off that way. Infrastructure would be built for them and they could learn how to use them.

What's your damage, Heather?
There was a lot of fucked up shit that the Europeans did. But at the end of the day no other group of people can say they haven't done the same so it's whatever. This is just how humanity is.

America is a great nation though, for all its shortcomings and the shit that's been going on recently. Does that excuse the evil that was and still is committed? No, but nothing really can. So there's no point in white people walking around self flagellating. I think as long as we all recognize the facts we can move forward.
this handwavey bullshit got four likes lmao

I don't understand! Lower-case 't'...or a cross?! Are you saying vampires did this to you?!
It's a really murky subject, since the atrocities committed against Native Americans were severe and outright savage. But, tragically, this advanced our culture in so many ways. Helped us acquire so many fantastic creations and the like in the long run.

I would never justify what might as well be the cultural genocide of the natives, but one can't also deny that we are now living on age that so many take for granted. It's a grim dark reality that the greatest of civilizations were built off the sweat, tears, and blood of many, and the Americas are no exception.

Vikings by definition would have came as raiders or conquerors.

They raided abbeys and churches in the UK and Ireland for hundreds of years, slaughtered a shit ton of people and then took back the women, or just raped them then and there.

As a result we have Ireland's capital (Dublin, coming from the Gaelic Dubh Linn, or Blackpool because it was a swampy bog until vikings settled there), several coastal towns around Britain, and some leftover traces of Nordic genes in the population.

Benevolent they ain't, but influential on the future of both countries. The Saxons had to ward them off in the North before getting to Hastings and dealing with William (the future Conqueror of Britain).

Everyone generally sees the Romans in a positive light, but then in Britain alone they nearly eradicated the Celtic languages and culture. They made roads and Bath though, so it's all good.
Romans did a good job wiping out cultures, yeah (hello Gauls, Carthage). Think the reason we look on them in such a positive light is two things

A. Time

B. Laws of the Republic being the foundation of Western Civ laws

And also just how effective at fighting and conquering they were, thus spreading their own culture which still lasts to this day in some forms. There is a reason people circle jerk over Rome and not, say, the Mongol Empire.

Knees go weak, and I swoon, underneath the pallid moon.

The only time I feel alright.
We should really view all of history from an unbiased and analytical standpoint, especially in the classroom.

Let kids come to their own conclusions. If we spend all our time teaching kids who the villains and heroes of history are, we've just been reduced to a propaganda state.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.

Reich would have collapsed anyway. It was neither necessary nor validated. You cannot ally yourself with the likes of the Soviet Union and claim to have moral superiority over the Axis.
Hell, you're barely above them when the face of your faction is the most despicable, warmongering, Zionist pig of the 20th century. Yeah, I'm talking shit on Churchill.
