Mind very conspicuously reflects on the face its various states which a man of intelligence can very easily read. They were a conduit through which many ideas were passed on from Asia into Europe, especially into the Greek world. The other Jewish kingdoms (‘tectrachies’) retained a degree of autonomy until the mid-first century when lack of a suitable candidate led Rome to fully integrate the whole of Palestine into the Empire. I had only the resultant, settled feeling. Copper was found in almost pure form in some areas and so was one of the first metals used.

Railro ads became the USA�s largest enterprises before the Civil War, and the first robber baron fortunes were built then; the Vanderbilt fortune began with steamboats .� North America is the richest continent ever stolen, and Americans pillaged it to a scale never seen before or since.� American prosperity was almost wholly founded on the rich energy resources that they stole from the original inhabitants, and the first was the forests, soils, and streams of the Eastern Woodlands, to be followed closely by coal, and then oil.� No people in world history had access to that kind of loot and the means to exploit it.� The USA spent the 19th century stealing the continent from the natives and erecting an industrial civilization, and then the losers of Europe�s competitive existence poured into it. �In 1800, the British Isles had four times the USA�s population, but by 1900 the USA had nearly twice the UK's population. [810] � In 2013, the USA had nearly five times the population of the UK, but the UK had more than seven times the population density.� The Western Hemisphere and Australia are markedly underpopulated compared to the Old World.� While the USA was raping a continent, the UK was preying upon much of the planet.� In 18 15, when Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo, the UK�s navy was nearly three times the size of France�s, which was its only rival.� Naval power was the key to colonial success and world domination during the 19th century.� The UK led the effort, and its industrial production was the key.� In 1750, E urope had less than a quarter of the world�s industrial output, and by 1900, it and the USA comprised more than 85% of global output.� The USA�s industrial output was little more than a third of the UK�s in 1860, but by 1900 the USA surpassed its ancestor and reached nearly a quarter of global production, although the UK still had more per-capita industrialization. [811] � In 1929, on the eve of the Great Depression, the USA produced more than 40% of the world�s manufactured goods, which was more than the UK, Germany, the Soviet Union, France, Japan, and Italy combined. [812] � In 1950, as the world recovered from the great imperial battle known as World War II, the USA�s Gross National Product (�GNP�) was larger than those same nations, and the USA�s per-capita GNP was nearly twice the UK�s and nearly seven times Japan�s. [813] Amo ng the many outcomes in the British Isles and the rest of humanity as it fell under capitalist domination was a profound alteration in how people made a living.� The �benefits� that Earth�s conquered peoples enjoyed from Europe�s rise to dominance were highly equivocal, and Europe shattered millennia of economic, political, and social relations.� What started as feudal domination in England gave way to Game Laws, Enclosure, and other ways to drive the peasantry from the land and into the mines and mills, which deepened the British class divide.� Capitalism began in the English countryside but soon unseated mercantilist colonial domination with capitalist practices.� The primary outcome of capitalism, socially, was severing the connection of peasants to the land and reorganizing their efforts into what Marx called the capitalist mode of production.� It was radically different from just skimming their efforts, and changed how they worked.� Contemporary observers in the 19th century clearly saw that a new class of humans was created by that change, today called the working class, and Marx called it the proletariat. [814] � The working class was comprised of peoples who no longer had any claim to land for farming and only had their labor to sell in a monetized market.� The capitalist class violently formed the working class, from the countryside of England to the plains of Bengal.� The U SA was a more rural phenomenon, with a virgin continent there for the taking, and the illusion of self-sufficiency was pursued by �pioneers,� which is still reflected in its national character.� Similar to how hunter-gatherer societies became dependent on agricultural and pastoral ones, if they survived at all, the so-called pioneers of American expansion across the continent were dependent on industrialization and its markets.� The American image of an independent pioneer taming the vast wilderness is a fantasy, and especially in light of what happened in the western half of North America during the last half of the 19th century The Rise of Western Christendom: Triumph and Diversity, A.D. 200-1000, 2nd Edition (The Making of Europe).
