  • He left out Syphilis. Also, he wasn't entirely accurate for a few other reasons. He should have worded the question "why Europeans got less less sick". Lots of white people in America died of smallpox too just at 30% and not 90% like the natives. Also, when Northern Europeans came to the subtropics like in my city of Charleston, most of them dropped dead in droves from diseases like Malaria. There is a huge reason the English got to found Boston just after 1620 but it was another fifty years before they got to Charleston. Because most people who moved to Charleston just flat died shortly after they got here. Charleston got to exist because England dumped enough human fodder on it that eventually enough people with natural resilience against subtropical diseases were here to keep the population going. Well, the other half of the population was more resistant to Malaria but they had other problems that outweighed that comparatively minor benefit.

  • The animals thing is just weird. The ancestors of modern cattle were not very different from Buffalo. They were twice as large, ornery herd animals. The domestication process is what made them cows, not some cowishness.

  • This video is based almost entirely on Jared Diamond's "Guns Germs and Steel", but doesn't make mention of the fact that Guns Germs and Steel is not a widely accepted historical theory. I think the video should offer some links to resources with different viewpoints.

    The WandererThe Wanderer7 dagen geleden
    • There's the possibility of some people surviving but remaining carriers - but it would certainly be harder for it to cross back as most of the time too much of the crew would die to complete the journey (after all if it wasn't deadly enough for that it wouldn't count as a plague by european standards)

  • Showing the animals in domesticated form doesn't help, the ancient ox might be a whole lot more like a bison since one of its ancestors was the European Bison aka wisent, in any way a whole lot less like a modern cow. The dog doesn't count since derived from the wolf, and precolumbian America had wolves. And some regard syphilis as the American Pox (it was even called "a pox" in the 19th century). Soldiers often brought it home. But maybe because it is a slow killer it is more like Hansen's disease.

  • The new world had a plateau that nobody could get past, until the old worlders brought the keys to progression it would never get better. There just wasn't enough people to stop focusing on food and start focusing on science and culture. I still wish they tried a little harder to preserve the native American ways, it would be cool to see how they would've developed after recovering from the plague and find their world full of new things.
