keyword inevitable slide into decay. The story of the fall of an empire, by a more vigorous empire is a very human story... as is the story of a group finding a place with lower tech natives and overhwelming them.

Seriously, its okay for the underdog to lose sometimes. The Aztecs had it coming. I'm not saying that Cortez was a nice guy, but he was way more ethical than the Aztecs. And I'm okay with the idea that he conquered the Aztecs in general... same goes here...
