The Black Death that swept through Europe was not nearly as bad as the decimation of the Native populations upon European contact. So why is the Black Death portrayed as so much worse?

In that same vein, why is that mild tragedy for us as Westerners is made to seem so much worse than complete annihilation of foreigners?

Keep one eye on decency while focusing on your life.

That’s it. That’s all a person really has to do in my opinion. Anyone who wants to be more sacrificial (on a genuine level) is more than welcome (and such sacrifices are commendable,) but I think the above idea is already more than fair, especially because it doesn’t involve exploiting others in the name of “helping” them.
