the Europeans settlement, ambition and adventureousness in forming this nation.
This is said from the Europeans' perspective (Eurocentric).
From another perspective:
settlement = invasion
ambition = expansionism, genocide, greed, covetousness
"adventureousness" (sic) = aggression, desperation (terrible conditions in Europe driving people to leave)
forming this nation = destroying indigenous people, their settlements, culture, and kidnapping their children and importing slave labor to do the work that they could not or would not do and enriching themselves on the misery, exploitation and genocide of non-European people.
The latter point contains FACTS that cannot be controverted.
How they are viewed is another matter.
If a person is of the "Massa, we sick?" mentality, they will be viewed in the way that Oldsport views it.
Sad, but true.
