Were the animal-like savages better off under colonialism?

All the various people around the world who were uncivilized when advanced people came to colonize them.  Now they seem to have reverted to their savage ways?

    No. Because freedom and dignity are above all else. What did coIoniaIism do? It led to the genocide of native Americans and other groups. The people elsewhere were enslaved or kept in some form of servitude. How were they better off than when they were working on their own farms and trades? Simply having a certain style of clothing, language, and mannerisms do not make someone better off. Those are all arbitrary things.

     And what makes someone civilized and savage? When the Romans colonized Britain, they claimed the inhabitants of Britain were savages. Britons later colonized America and called the natives there savages. And the Greeks likely would have called the Romans savages before the Roman Empire had they had any interest in invading that area. The Moors saw Europeans as less civilized at their high point as well. So "all the various people around the world who were uncivilized" refers to every single human. We have literally seen humans in many countries who had gone ferral when left alone in the wild. Likewise, we have seen countless people in underdeveloped countries do great things with no outside help. There are no truly advanced people, only people who were given more opportunities and resources.

    They were better off before the brutal, greedy, and murderous colonialists got to them.
