@Hoehner Tim The Inca were not a Utopia but as empires go they really got as close to it as possible. The stronges weapon agains the Spanish was disease.
Hoehner Tim (4 months ago)
Would the Spainish have won even without the plagues? ProbabIy. A load canister from a cannon is fairly effective at stopping a human wave attack even back then. The tech advantage for the Spainish wasn't so much that they had guns and gunpwder and the Inca bows & arrows, swords and spears, the harquebus were frankly crap as a weapon, and the Spanish were armed with similar weapoins. It was the Spainish sword and armor tech was far better. Armored up the Spanish were basically invulnerable to Inca weapons. So much so that the Spainish decided full armor was excessive for the conflict and chain mail was sufficent protection against the Inca weapons. The Incas were also in the middle of a civil war when the Spanish arrived so the Inca Empire wasn't the socialist Utopia you painted it out to be. Put down the koolaid.

I wonder if the Incans thought they were earthquake-proofing their buildings, not from plates shifting beneath them, but because "He-To-Whom-We-Sacrifice was displeased with what we sacrificed."

'Ideal socialist society' one that involved three separate classes, different rules for each and where those at the bottom did all the work while those at the top took all the rewards! Not to mention their predilection for human sacrifice. Doesn't sound very socialist (in theory anyway) but it does sound like pretty much every socialist society in practice.

In fact there was more to it than just the epidemics, there was a civil war, so the empire was divided, and the minorities conquered although had food and clothes as the video said were not really ok with being part of the empire, so they helped the spanish thinking they could free them. In fact the spanish won because they knew how to manipulate the situation to their favor. And I guess luck because they arrived exactly at the moment where the empire was in total chaos. English is not my mother language so pardon my grammar...

Some people say that the defining technology of the Euroepans wasn't guns (invented by china) but sailing and the will to explore (the Chinese ceased exploring at an important point in their history). It allowed Europeans to acquire many technologies and conquests.

The Europeans didn't have total resistance to diseases such as Smallpox they had a best some resistance to it and thus more Europeans survived the diseases than North and South Americans who had none at all. A factor in the survival of more Europeans is that the diseases had ravaged Europe for centuries so only the part of the population with some genetic resistance survived. Since the native peoples of North and South America had never been exposed to the diseases before they had very little genetic exposure and the diseases killed more of them. However, some of the natives did survive through blind luck so while some historians believe that European diseases killed up to 90% of the native population some did survive.
George Williams (4 months ago)
You forgot to mention that one reason the Inca Empire fell is because in the years before the Spanish invasion the Inca was involved in a civil war and members of the losing side assisted the Spanish invasion. Also, before the Spanish arrived their diseases such as Smallpox and others made their way into the Inca Empire and killed quite a large part of the population.

What Simon forgot to mentioned is the Spanish were riding on horses which enabled them to move much quicker than man on foot. The horses gave the Spanish a very distinct advantage over 90% of the native Americans.

Although the information is very accurate, you use several times images of Mesoamerican pyramids paired with text which leads to believe the Incas built pyramids. This was absolutely not the case. Pyramids were built by the Mesoamericans civilizations (Mayans, Aztecs, Lencas etc.), but this structures were never adopted by the Incas

If i remember correctly, the Inca had not discovered how to smelt iron at the time of contact with the Europeans. Even if the guns were not a massive advantage, though they would probably fare better against Inca armor than arrows would, the advantage of steel armor and weapons against wood, bronze, and obsidian would be fairly extreme. But even with the technological disadvantages, as with native north Americans, they would have had a fighting chance if it were not for the diseases.

You forgot to mention that the actual Inca numbers were only in the thousands and that the Spaniards made allies with conquered peoples looking to cut ties with their former empires. This was quite possibly due to lingering resentment or a more pragmatic approach of siding with a group that seemed stronger.

1 leads to an interesting alternate history scenario, if the Norse had stayed a bit longer in North America, their diseases could have spread through the Americas, reaching the Incas. By the time the Spanish arrived they could have built up resistance of their own, and perhaps repelled the invaders, or at least held on to their culture post conquest and achieved independence later. (as India managed with the British)
Haplo Teromaximus (4 months ago)
The Incas building those "huge stone structures" is a point of contention. The oral tradition says the Incas didn't build the large stone structures, they were already there, but they built on top of them. The difference in stone, and craftsmanship quality from the lower, and upper parts of the structures seems to support this.
et chalaco (1 month ago)
what oral tradition are you referring to? Have you ever even read the chronicles in Spanish? I doubt it. They are notoriously difficult to understand.
Gato (2 months ago)
Yes, in fact all ancient constructions here are build over another more ancient structure, so there was a culture that made an edification, but years later another culture conquered them and to show that, they build another building over that edification, then years later appears another culture and repeats, people often know only Incas, but here we had a lot of cultures, so the incas only were the most recent, curiously after the spanish conquered them they build their temples over the same edifications all the other cultures did.

Simon, I’m a bit surprised by the largely uncritical and shallow analysis. Not your usual fair. No society is this clean and wonderful. The imposition of Inti and a well-oiled machine for conquest and centralized rule indicate a militaristic society that was adept at enforcing submission and compliance. The problem with the paucity of written records and evidence in regard to the Inca and other similarly-situated societies is so-called historians impose their own value-sets on what is, effectively, a blank canvas. Rarely do these ‘historians’ care for their actual subject matter, than they do in abusing it to prove a contemporary point—which as an historian I find quite contemptible. This happened to the Maya, for example, before their writing systems were deciphered and something very different to historians’ various utopias emerged from the shadows. I believe that these unreliable histories unduly colored this Top Tenz article. The Inca were complex and achieved great things. But a peaceful socialist utopia they were not.
