Nevermind if you are a Catholic a Protestant or neither Are you against human sacrifices and or human rights Well then get rid of your prejudices and read this book It is time that our young olk at college start getting the acts right if not at college then through the original sources This book is a summary of the Conuest physical spiritual of Mexico by the Catholic kingdom of Spain Whether you like it or not not is not the point they are Suspicion at Seven: A Lois Meade Mystery facts History is not to be liked or disliked it s past and there s nothing to do about it Those who consider the Christianization of the Aztecs along with their subjugation to a new people wrong they ought to tell me what they would have done if they were among the Spaniards of those times I say it s ridiculous to put ourselves in the position ofolks 500 years ago while living in the sedative government subsidized world of today unless you re a hypocrite to dareHow can this excellent historian condense all the adventures and acts of this history in so ew pages is something that I haven t seen before The result is that not only every page but every line and every word is precisely chosen and placed I am savoring every page of it going back
and re reading to ully grasp the implication of the scenes describedMr Warren H Carroll sre reading to ully grasp the implication of the scenes describedMr Warren H Carroll s doesn t diminish the accuracy or objectivity of this account we are talking History not politics or religion and Mr Carroll is a historian of top notch uality He uses Aztec as well as Spanish sources that either were themselves witnesses or recuperate testimonies rom witnesses Mr Carroll knows the contemporary accounts of the Conuest and he specially uses the version by Salvador de Madariaga if anybody knows him he can be reassured of his ualified status among historiansFacts In 1487 during the rule of a Tlacaellel among the Aztecs and when he was 89 years old he dedicated the new pyramid temple in the center of Tenochtitlan He dedicated with the greatest mass sacrifice of his reign The sacrifice went on or 4 days and 4 nights killing 80000 people rom the hostile provinces and the swollen ranks of slavery It took only 15 seconds to kill each victim they were that expertThose pre Marxists and socialists of yesteryear killed about 50000 olk a year Do our college professors and minority rights advocates consider this a legitimate part of their ancient cultureThere s many many amazing and elouent stories to be read here But I want to Gulp!: The Seven-Day Crash Course to Master Fear and Break Through Any Challenge finish by mentioning Mr Carroll s point about how the Conuest of Mexico and by extension of all Hispanic America got a bad name I bet the hypocrite progressists of our anti American campuses know well Fray Bartolom de Las Casas This monk would become such an advocate of all the Indians that he tried to pretend that the horrors of human sacrifice in Mexico were only a tinyraction of what they actually were there can never be an obligation to stand by while thousands of innocent people are being killed because of state or religious policy if one has the power and the means to prevent it without causing still greater evils Says the author of this little book and I agree although this is still in our day a great debateBut I recommend this great book also because it is one of the greatest stories in human history condensed and viewed The Outlaw and the Upstart King from a very interesting point of view specially if you believe that God knows it all and that nothingalls short of His plan If so one has to start accepting th. Standard histories on the Age of Colonization tell a sad story of the ills inflicted on indigenous peoples by exploitative Western powers.
