A great potential destroyed at the start

The whole of world history is rendered almost corrupt beyond redemption by the genocide of the original inhabitants of the americas…

Christians, for one, had from the start a vigorous and inclusive sense of many peoples and rapidly created a ‘catholic’ communion of cultures during the early to later phases of the roman empire. Christianity was designed to create this effect and never indulged in genocide…until the last era of its long corruption and inner dissolution. By the time of columbus the whole potential of that sense of universal cultures as one was lost to the action of thugs and adventurers like columbus…we can see that the american potential was lost almost at the start.
