33. Genocide is unacceptable
no matter what time period. Period.

Columbus was a monster, and a monster is a monster, the time period is inconsequential. Other cultures and individuals of his time AND culture were opposed to those types of actions (even Spanish clergy).

Even if everyone else approved of the policies, an individual has both the ability and responsibility to think independently and do what is right. NO EXCEPTIONS. I doubt those slaughtered in Rwanda, Europe, Hispaniola, America and elsewhere gave a crap when they were slaughtered.

Murder is murder. Genocide is genocide. Wrong is wrong. ALWAYS.

Sorry, I'm not flaming you and I hope it didn't come off that way.
