Ah, yes. Diseases only came from the old world.

>> No.17426837

Largely, yes. At least diseases that could wipe out entire societies. There is a reason there was no ameri-pox that made its way back to Europe and devastate the European population the same way our respiratory diseases did to the natives. Largely this can be attributed to the fact that Eurasia had access to the most important thing for disease spread, useful agricultural animals.

Because of how our cities in Europe, North Africa & Asia were set up we had the influx of horrific plagues with relative frequency. Essentially they formed the perfect breeding ground for plagues by having:
>large animal populations in close proximity to humans
>a constant influx of people allowing diseases to smolder and flare
>an extremely interconnected system of commerce & trade

Diseases could jump from animal to human in a single location and spread throughout the continent in as short as a few months.

Native Americans didn't have large numbers of draft animals they lived in constant close proximity to, and didn't have cities with the same level of population density or population influx, and certainty didn't have the level of trade. The Old World had been dealing with plagues for millennia, the new world was relatively free of them.

Not him but it's incredibly biased to put a skull and crossbones listing "disease" going one way and not mentioning the millions of deaths in Europe and elsewhere caused by syphilis, which came from the New World.

One of the best pieces of evidence I know is a pre-Columbian monastery in England that the monk's bones, when examined, were riddled with the signs of syphilis. Syphilis being new world is a meme. The Old World remains the kind of plagues, it was an even greater weapon against the New World than steel because the moment Spanish hogs went feral the natives were already dead.

We brought diseases because we were the superior conquerors who climbed the evolution stat tree way faster by having chad domesticated animals.
Living in close proximity to animals gave us all these diseases. If the natives really wanted to not be wiped out they should have been putting skillpoints into domestication rather than whatever they were choosing to do.

Despite shitting on Native Americans for not domesticating animals (which is disingenuous because they actually did domesticate many animals), I struggle to think of a single animal domesticated by Europeans.
Cows, chickens, pigs, horses, even donkeys, all were domesticated outside Europe and brought there by traders from the Middle East.
Maybe Greece managed to domesticate something? It seems more likely that domesticated animals reached Greece from the Middle East though.

>> No.17433016

Cows, horses, dogs, and pigs were all domesticated in europe independently of other regions domesticating them. All three of those animals were domesticated from animals native to europe.

Chickens come from asia because junglefowl are native to asia, and donkeys come from the arab world because the wild ass is native only to africa and the middle east.

Of course there were diseases that went both ways. The Aztecs had problems with plagues before the arrival of the Spanish. There big one was a hemorrhaging virus similar to Hantavirus and with the same vector of rodents. The big reason our diseases hit them so much harder is that ours were bred from us keeping massive amounts of animals around as food. We had been living with them much longer and usually in pretty filthy conditions compared to those found in the Americas. We developed immunities or died. We had higher populations overall which lead to wider spread. Outside of the meso-american empires populations were just way to wide spread apart for diseases to travel. It's hard to tell what diseases were here first since skeletal testing can only provide so much evidence but there definitely was native diseases.

In the 18th century, the prevailing notion was that diseases travelled through the air, and infected people whose humours were imbalanced. The humours being wet, dry, cold, and warm. This was the common scientific consensus in Europe for over a thousand years, until the mid 19th century. I doubt they would’ve even considered the blankets as potential disease vectors. Instead, they probably would’ve believed the air in the room that contained the ill person was the cause.

Rabbits originated in the Spanish peninsula and were domesticated by Europeans

According to wikipedia, dogs and various honey bees were domesticated in Europe too. That seems to be basically be it though.

I don't know what to tell you, bro. The results speak for themselves; Europeans literally conquered the entire world and only gave it up because they started feeling guilty for winning so hard.

The inhabitants of today’s Italy, Germany and United Kingdom named syphilis ‘the French disease’, the French named it ‘the Neapolitan disease’, the Russians assigned the name of ‘Polish disease’, the Polish called it ‘the German disease’, The Danish, the Portuguese and the inhabitants of Northern Africa named it ‘the Spanish/Castilian disease’ and the Turks coined the term ‘Christian disease’. Moreover, in Northern India, the Muslims blamed the Hindu for the outbreak of the affliction. However, the Hindu blamed the Muslims and in the end everyone blamed the Europeans.

And I think you’re a retarded ass faggot for reading too far into it.
Clearly it’s a list of “valuable exports”.
Disease was indeed a valuable export because it cleared up a lot of land that settlers would have otherwise had to fight for.
Just because you can’t see why it was valuable/useful doesn’t mean it had no value.

Please, read a book and not an editorial written by a blue haired guilty white who graduated with a journalism degree in 2020. Look at the situations when the Europeans arrived

>neighboring tribes hate them because they’re bloodthirsty warlords who demand tribute and capture civilians for sacrifice
>Spanish arrive
>wtf these people need Jesus they’re cutting out people’s hearts
>nice they also have gold
>neighboring tribes help the Spanish overthrow the psycho blood cult
>conquistadors impregnate some women on their way out with gold (spoils of war)

Trail of Tears
>American settlers and natives in the southeast form multitude of treaties for both sides benefits
>groups of natives keep breaking the treaties, raiding settlements and kidnapping women
>some of the native settlements are sitting on gold they don’t know what to do with, nice
>ok we’ll just move all these people to fertile lands elsewhere so we can all fuck off from each other
>way more complicated and expensive than expected
>lasts a decade longer and costs orders of magnitude more than expected
>whoops lol bad idea oh well got a civil war brewing

>germ theory is hundreds of years away
>average person still thinks flower petals and bloodletting prevents Black Plague
>damn those reds are dropping like flies
>that sucks

The native Americans weren’t genocided, they were conquered. They put up quite a fight considering the circumstances but to act like they were poor blameless victims (noble savage myth, you racist) and the evil whites ruined everything is disingenuous and ignorant. Again, read a book, I’d suggest starting with the dictionary and looking up “genocide.”
