But this also increased competition among European powers for African colonies. De Tocqueville also declared that juries "...make all men feel that they have duties toward society and that they take a share in its government." The policy changes are especially aimed at dampening inflation while encouraging foreign investment to boost production and export earnings. Also found in the table of contents were Robert L. As Pontiac’s for ces laid siege to forts in Detroit and today’s Pittsburgh (Fort Pitt), Jeffrey Amherst, who commanded the British army in North America, and for whom a town in Massachusetts is named, had a series of exchanges with his commanders, and the strategy of giving the Native Americans smallpox blankets was raised and approved by Amherst, rather offhandedly.� They gave out smallpox blankets, and a smallpox epidemic broke the siege.� The timing of letters, handing out smallpox blankets, and epidemics makes it doubtful whether giving out smallpox blankets led to the epidemic during the siege, but during the following year, smallpox annihilated the Ohio River Valley’s natives, making its conquest by the USA, a generation later, an easier task.� The intention of germ warfare is clear, and surely at least contributed to the resulting epidemic that killed more than 100,000 people.� Amherst was one a long line of British genocidists, and he even wrote that he wished he could use the Spanish “ dog ” method on the Indians, but lamented the fact that he did not have enough dogs for the job. [133] � Ben Franklin was a staunch advocate of using dogs on the Indians. [134] � Not long after Am herst mentioned his longing to use dogs on Native Americans, the English nearly replicated the Spanish experience in the Caribbean on the aboriginal inhabitants of Tasmania .� On Tasmania, British invaders used natives for dog food, and three centuries after the Spanish atrocities the British did the same thing when the opportunity presented itself.� The colonization of the South Pacific and Australia was supposedly the “enlightened” colonization.� There were only about 5,000 original Tasmanians, because they were hunter-gatherers and the hunter-gatherer lifestyle cannot support nearly the population densities that agricultural societies can, as the Caribbean islanders were.� By 1843, only 43 Tasmanians were left alive, and the last Tasmanian died in 1905, for a complete genocide that the British were responsible for during the modern age.� There was a te mporary pos itive effect for the natives due to Pontiac’s war.� King George III made the Royal Proclamation of 1763 that set aside the lands between the Appalachians and Mississippi River to be reserved for native tribes.� The colonists largely ignored the proclamation if they even heard of it.� Daniel Boone was illegally penetrating into today’s Kentucky by 1769.� He had big dreams to build his empire there, but he was not nearly as successful in his empire-building dreams as Washington was. [135] While tribes were reg ularly exterminated, some scattered survivors eked out existences here and there, to give rise to tribes/nations making a “comeback” today, and the Taino, Huron, and Wampanoag are examples of this trend.� It can be seen as a healthy trend (although the casino phenomenon is anything but auspicious), there is reason for skepticism toward some claims, but critiques of white people appropriating Native American culture are accurate. [136] � I am nearly an eighth Native American myself (Creek tribe, and perhaps a bit of another), although native blood in the family was something that my ancestors vehemently denied.� The “taint” is obvious in some of my relatives; their bloodlines are supposedly all from Northern Europe, but some could have been convincing extras in Dances with Wolves.� Although I have some native blood, I write this essay as a white American, which I consider myself to be.� In 1769, James Watt invented the modern steam engine, which was one of the 18th century’s most important events, as it made the Industrial Revolution possible.� In 1776, two events marked the rise of a new kind of empire.� One was American elites signing the Declaration of Independence, and the other was the publication of Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations.� Similar to how the Catholic Church’s influence began unraveling as it reached new heights of power, just as Great Britain was reaching a truly global dominance, its most successful colonies revolted.� The American Revolution likely would not have succeeded without French assistance, as France did what it could to thwart its rival.� Capitalism already existed when Adam Smith wrote his monumental work, although the term would not be used until the 19th century.� Smith, an Enlightenment philosopher, would have been horrified by today’s corporate capitalism, although he is considered its father today.
