Columbus Day is upon us. There will be celebration, merriment, no work for most people, and no government school. What exactly are we celebrating? His “discovery” of a geographic area already populated by an average of 7 million indigenous people? His enslavement of indigenous people to mine for precious metals? His sexual predations of the native women? His forced conversion of the indigenous people to Christianity, a religion that the natives knew nothing about? His complete abandonment of the principles of Christianity? His systematic genocidal eradication of some native peoples to near extinction and some to complete extinction?
His veneration as a conqueror is ironic considering the hundreds of thousands of natives that died at his sadistic hand and that of his compatriots. It is a wretched habit of humans, this idolatry of those who have slaughtered the most humans, destroyed the most unique cultures, laid the most waste to great civilizations of the past, and wantonly obliterated the piecemeal progress and knowledge that has taken generations of hard work, toil, and intellectual struggle to achieve. A fleeting moment of savage brutality can utterly annihilate vital knowledge that would have formed the precious foundation on which thriving industrial economies are built. Do not genuflect before mass murdering genocidal maniacs.
The victors write the history books and the vanquished vanish into the fog of obscurity.
“Kill one man, and you are a murderer. Kill millions of men, and you are a conqueror. Kill them all, and you are a god.”

I’m a practitioner of Eastern Healing arts with degrees in Acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs, I have always questioned the status quo, a path which led me to peaceful anarchism. Through my journey, I have worn many hats, that of a classical pianist, avid chess player, philosopher, comedian, and now father of two little anarchists. My wife brands me as a Cultural Critic, but I am simply following my thirst for knowledge and passion for writing.
