THE FLIP SIDE OF COLONIALISM
- Colonialism was a profound if not most profound good since the invention of farming – we dragged mankind out of ignorance, superstition, poverty, disease, hard labor, child mortality, early death, suffering, tyranny, and subjectivity to the vicissitudes of nature – kicking and screaming all the while.
Our failure was only in having the european civil wars and leaving our project incomplete. That failure led to the only significant problem of colonialism: (a) the failure to complete the replacement french despotism with english developmentalism. (b) the absence of the technology of fiat money credit that would have eliminated the need for gold and resource extraction. (c) the collapse left an opening for French Socialism, Jewish Communism, Islamic Fundamentalism. (d) the introduction of medicines and health science without the introduction of eugenics (birth control). (e) the failure of our investments in the third world which generally were too insubstantial to do other than delay or inhibit internal growth of demand.
- Slavery was universal and whites were more frequently the subject of it (by muslims) than perpetrators of it. Whites are not malaria-immune but many blacks are. Whites have higher (hotter) metabolisms, and blacks don’t. Whites had to be taken from the criminal class. Africans were captured by other africans as prisoners of war in order to attempt to unify west african empires (which would have happened).
This meant that the warm weather colonies most able to produce high value goods (particularly sugar) with Africans, and therefore (a) had more survivors, (b) spread the genres of previously constrained peoples to new territories, (c) forcibly modernized both cultures, civilizations and Genes. And it was not ‘known’ that enslaved primitives were capable of civilized behavior at the time. It was only in the 19th century after the industrial revolution that we found that citizens were more profitable than serfs, were more profitable than slaves.
- Creating middle classes by resource exploitation, and selling manufactured (value added) goods to developing peoples was the only means possible of dragging the vast body of dirty, ignorant, superstitious, violent, poor, disease ridden, un-domesticated human animals out of of their condition, and reforming their societies incrementally until they themselves could create a middle class civilization capable of self governance without threat to more advanced civilizations.
I don’t ignore anything. I don’t make mistakes. It’s my job to expose and educate the ignorant, unable, sophomoric, and willingly deceptive. ã lol
