Anyway, just forget what I wrote…..it is far better to think in black on white terms …. it makes pointing fingers easier.
I was just going to say that and more. Not just the aztecs had wars. They all had border skirmishes and fought all the time. The Mayan structure was also similar to the Indian structure of castes. Equality my ass. The priest and warriors were the highest. That already tells you how peaceful they were and how different they were from Europeans. (i.e. not much at all)
