Gliding past the rolling farmland on The Queen of the Mississippi (2015) and America (2016), the world’s two newest paddlewheel riverboats, is an experience set in a time past and a testament to the ingenuity of the pioneers who first traveled these waters. In South America, Central America, or North America, when captured, natives were each loaded with about 75 pounds of loot and marched towards the coast.� They were chained together at the neck, forming long marching lines.� If a native faltered, collapsing under his load (women also met this fate), the Spaniards beheaded him as an easy way to remove him from his collar.� The natives in line had to step past or over the headless body. [45] � In one region where that practice flourished, the native word for “Christian” was the equivalent of “demon.” [46] Spain had a steeply stratified society; 85% of the population was composed of landless peasants, while a few families owned more than half of Spain's land.� About the only career options for ambitious peasants were becoming priests or soldiers.� The Madonna/whore mentality was deeply ingrained in Spanish men.� The Spanish also picked up some of the Moorish worst traits, such as machismo and the practice of having harems.� Sometimes even priests had them.� In colonial Paraguay, the average Spaniard had nearly 20 native concubines. [47] The Spanish soldiers who conquered the New World mainly came from the peasant class.� The New World's soldierly leaders were generally hidalgos, which was the lowest form of Spanish nobility and meant that an ancestor did well in battle against Moors.� From the moment they discovered the naked women of the Caribbean, they were like brutal kids in candy stores.� Raping native women was perhaps the favorite pastime of Spanish soldiers, from 1492 until the 1800s, which is where the huge mestizo class of Latin America came from.� Their role models were the grandees of Spain, who were rich landowners that did not take off their hats in the king's presence.� The merchant and skilled classes of Spain were significantly composed of Jews and Moors, but they were run out of the country, which helped set the stage for Spain's decline in comparison to its European rivals.
