They would think that we flinch, that were are afraid of them – afraid of practicing a lawful rigour singularly demanded at this juncture lest it should provoke new troubles.” (77) If this line of thinking were allowed to propagate then the British Navy would quickly be in immediate danger of another Great Mutiny.
In Spain, the royalty and the venturesome citizens had something in common; a desire for gold and power. The conquistadors of the Spanish Conquest obliterated ancient Native American nations in The Americas using weapons, strategies, and other occurrences. Whilst the goals of the Spaniards may not have been remarkably vicious, they ended up completely leveling progressive nations and spoiling decades or more of advancements in everything from mathematics to philosophy. My research has brought upon three topics: the goals of the Spanish Conquest, the stories of the Native American empires, and the destruction of said empires. As has been noted, the Spanish conquistadors wanted gold and exorbitant commodities.

The French and Indian war nearly doubled the national debt of the British so they decided to raise taxes on the American colonists in an attempt to raise money. It was not easy for the British to collect these new taxes as they were met with resistance, so much that they had to send in more soldiers to help the representatives of the British government perform their jobs safely. Being taxed more made the colonists start having revolutionary thoughts towards their British
In actuality, many influential early Americans engaged in activity which contemporary society would consider criminal. Maybe today’s current politician’s actions correlate with those of our early American heroes and founding fathers?
