"Desperate Times, Desperate Measures

By Erik Rush

 "Even if one is not an historical scholar, it is easy to see how Europeans of 400 years ago might have observed the instability of regions they encountered due to tribal warfare, and determined that this was why so many were technologically and culturally disadvantaged to start with; they were too busy warring to get anything else done! Factor in some greed and great hubris, and Europeans reasoned that these nations – most of which weren’t even nations at all – were better off as colonies."
