|4 aInstead, they tried to live in harmony with nature,
5 bAnd all they really wanted was to be left alone,
6 cTo do things their own way,
7 Which wasn't hurting anybody,
8 dUntil the Yanks decided that they needed all the land in North America,
9 eJust because they wanted it,
10 Which is always a good enough reason for a Chosen Nation to do whatever it wants to.
11 And so the Yanks lied to the Indians,
12 fAnd stole from them,
13 And killed them when they objected to the lies and stealing,
14 And decided the Indians were savages,
15 gBecause the only thing they wanted was what they already had,
16 Before it got taken from them,
18 Poor bastards.
CHAPTER 61 The Australian bushmen never had a chance.
2 hThe children of the outback never wanted to rule the world,
3 But only to live in an out-of-the-way corner of it,
4 iUntil the Brits sent a bunch of convicts to civilize it,
5 Which meant taking it away from the bushmen,
7 Poor bastards.
CHAPTER 71 The black Africans never had a chance.
2 jThe Watusi and the Zulus and the thousands of tribes who lived in the jungles and the savanna didn't want to rule the world,
||3 Or build monuments of stone,
4 Or giant cities,
5 Or anything else.
6 kThey wanted to be left alone,
7 lTo live their own way,
8 Which didn't have anything to do with being Christian,
9 Or earning plantation wages,
10 mOr being enslaved on some plantation on a different continent,
11 But the Chosen Nations came to Africa anyway,
12 And brought all their great civilized gifts,
13 nIncluding Christianity,
14 oAnd whips and chains,
15 And terrible weapons,
16 And slave ships,
17 And colonial governments,
18 And armies,
19 And wars,
20 And lies,
21 And more pwhite people than you can shake a pointed stick at.
22 Poor bastards.
CHAPTER 81 qAnd all the poor bastards who never had a chance will probably never get one either,
2 Because now the ones who didn't get imprisoned or enslaved or killed are stuck with what the Chosen Nations gave them,
3 Including the desire for material possessions,
4 And the lust for power,
5 And fanatical beliefs about politics and religion,
6 And corruption,
7 And disease,
