Untitled[edit]

Someone who thoroughly fuckin' understands the encomienda system and the role for social reform 'shit' undertaken by the Roman Catholic Churches÷ (!) should take this and Repartimiento and the New Laws in hand. --20:01, 5 September 2005 (UTC)

English Treatment of Natives[edit]

I take issue with the sentence, "It is interesting to compare these attempts to justify the conquest, malicious and reprehensible as they are, with the remarkable absence thereof by English conquerors in America, which usually proceeded to outright extermination." I am unaware of any instance in which English peoples in the New World immediately exterminated a group of natives upon arrival. In every case of which I am aware, the extinction of native tribes took place over a period of years, sometimes generations. The English system did not present "outright extermination" any more than the Spanish did. Indeed, nothing in the English experience could compare to the Spaniards meeting the Aztecs and Incas.

Beside my other objections, I would point out that, though the sentence says it is interesting to compare the two systems, no attempt was made to do so. Instead, we are left with a single assertion that the English simply exterminated the natives they met. IOW, the sentence serves no useful purpose to this article. So, I believe that the sentence I am contesting should be removed. If no objections are presented, I will remove the sentence in a week. Pooua 06:41, 23 October 2006 (UTC)


Style and Spanish Language Article[edit]

This article is very hard to read and should take some stylistic as well as content hints from the Spanish language version of the same article. I am going to try to improve the readability of the page. Vizzeroth 09:02, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Deletions replaced by middle-school prattle haven't helped. I tried to set the text in some order again. --Wetman 16:48, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
