"but the cost of the initial subjugation and constant uprisings/ guerilla attacks will eat into those profits, possibly even surpass them. colonizers often had to resort to brutality, and even that was ineffective long term. *no thank you*"
sound like reasons to colonize?
not to mention citing the defeat the British faced in many of their colonies including us, and the constant resistance faced by colonizers the world over?
are you trying to do people a favor against their will? is subjugation ever a favor?
You just said why we should colonise them :) And also it will be better for them and for us. Listen when European Union unites in ine big country they will probably gona eslave Africa so. But that is another theme.
I understand you meant colonize, not enslave. but there are better ways to send tech and get back raw materials: trade.
sure we can get better deals if we control both sides, but the cost of the initial subjugation and constant uprisings/ guerilla attacks will eat into those profits, possibly even surpass them. colonizers often had to resort to brutality, and even that was ineffective long term. no thank you. remember how 13 little colonies beat the empire in which the sun never sets? far off guerilla wars are not in our favor.
the constant african resistance shows that they prefered their peaceful simple lives to being dominated by outsiders. for all of its wealth much of Europe was in the height of the industrial revolution with rampant tuberculosis, labor conditions worse then slavery (including child labor), and mass starvation of the poor despite plenty of resources. I think I'd prefer the savanagh.
Listen there is still sone gold and diamonds that could help Africa to improve. They just need goid and fair leader.
So what I wanted to say is that Europe should helo them but still get sone money for helping because they will never come alone on the level of Europe Asia America or others. If you understand me what I'm trying to say.
European people when they discovered Africa they had boats guns and all that kind of stafs, but what were black people had in that time. Nothing, they were still hunting animal with stick and rocks. Sad but true.
look i didn't mean in the way to lock them in the box and take away from them every rights, but at the past.
too much spending with little benefit, so no.
