15th century Spanish Dominican friar, probability theorist and legal scholar Bartolome de Las Casas argued that the Spanish conquest of the New World was illegal, because Mexico belonged to the native Americans. Sometimes it seems idle to blame people from other historical epochs for having the views they have because they lived in different cultures than do we. Father Bartolome seems to provide a counter example — his culture was pro-colonialism and he realized it was wrong, aruing for example that if Muslims decided to conquer Mexico on the theory that it was okay because the Aztecs were not Muslim it would be wrong, so it is wrong for Christians to do so. The Casas Case suggests that we have the ability to know what´s wrong and just miss it because we are corrupted by money or afraid. I don´t know much about him and whether or not he did at personal risk to his life, but he is a hero.
