Uh and now for our question the argument presented in

00:23

the description of suppose it has worked most closely Parallels

00:26

which of the following ideas and here's potential answers on

00:30

english power Plaything Good All right one heen a day

00:38

Sepulveda was all about the bogus philosophy that certain groups

00:42

of people were born to be slaves Unfortunately this idea

00:45

wasn't particularly controversial during this time On the contrary it

00:49

actually drove a bunch of new world economies for hundreds

00:52

of years All right Well with all that in mind

00:54

we think that is the right answer Sepulveda probably did

00:58

think that non american indians were entitled to a cz

01:01

much new world land as they wanted an idea better

01:04

known as manifest destiny However he was more interested in

01:08

spanish land entitlement And last we checked the spanish aren't

01:12

anglo saxon You have to go to great britain to

01:14

find those folks and no they don't all play the

01:16

sax way were disappointed too it's likely that supported it

01:21

would also agree with option b based on the passage

01:23

it's not totally crazy to think he'd be into the

01:26

idea that on ly strong people gain wealth and power

01:28

a concept known as social darwinism But again this passage

01:32

is specifically focused on spain's right to grind native americans

01:36

under its heel De felitta isn't theorizing about how he'll

01:40

grinders everywhere have the right to grind the powerless into

01:43

submission Well choice do you might be the most obviously

01:47

wrong in a bunch this guy's making a case for

01:49

force religious conversion what's rational about that believe it or

01:53

not supposedto actually was considered a philosopher of humanism of

01:56

philosophy that thinks solving problems with logic is well just

02:00

swell However that idea is not the basis of his

02:03

argument in this passage Well we need to look no

02:05

further than answer c to pin down where simple that

02:08

is coming from here This guy's convinced that enslaving people

02:11

you deemed inferior is a positive way to make a

02:14

difference in the world So while his thinking is wrong

02:17

on so many levels it does happen to be our

02:20

right answer And speaking of levels is the old world

02:23

still trying to get up the stairs Now Someone should 00:02:25.74 --> [endTime] tell us that there's an elevator in here somewhere
