Carlin talks about the Magellan circumnavigation expedition and asks the question:
“Are white people special?”
More specifically, was there something special about the Europeans and their drive for conquest? What made them conquer and dominate the Earth in a kind of Globalization 1.0? Were the ages of exploration and colonization a result of a specific kind of European human cruelty? Was it cultural? Religious?
It’s a fascinating topic. Have a listen |MP3|
