PRELUDE: One of the great ironies of history occurred in 1241. After Mongol hordes had conquered practically all of Asia, Iran and Russia, they were at the gates of Vienna with nothing standing between them and all of Europe. Suddenly they stopped….
Their leader, Ogedei Khan, had died and they returned home to compete for the succession to the Mongol Empire. Europe was thus spared conquest, occupation and a change in the course of all history since.
Consider what Europe and Christianity eventually inflicted throughout the world, especially the Western Hemisphere thru colonial genocide over the next several hundred years. The First World War? The Second?
Would an Asian history be substantially different or was humanity doomed to the type of predatory profiteering we still see today as conservative Social-Darwinists employ to excuse their behavior?
