With peace, New England became a textile mill center (Borneman 259). This progression of manufacturing led to a larger middle class, as people found the desire to buy luxury goods for themselves once again, leading to economic enhancement.
European colonization of other parts of the world was affected by mercantilism due to its ability to strengthen a nation through its attribute to increase wealth.

Along with ships, new navigational tools also helped sailors to travel more safely in the open seas. By the end of the 15th century, the compass improved a lot. Sailors used compasses to find their bearing, or direction of travel. The Printing press helped spread scientific discoveries and it was much faster than writing by hand. The art and science of maps improved and became more accurate as the sailors explored and found the flaws in the old maps.
Without a doubt, industrialization was one of the biggest factors in how the United States developed. It gave us the means of mass production, better transportation, and eventually the consumerist society that the United States is today. Industrialization did drastically change American society, but did it change America for the better? Did it do more good than bad? While industrialization did lead to multiple social and economic problems, the advantages significantly outweigh the disadvantages.

We allow people like Locke to show their controversial but still valid ideas like the one about how Kings and Queens should not have complete rule over a country which Locke was persecuted for back in England and by making sure that all ideas are tolerated we are able to progress ourselves further than the other countries that restrict expression and discovery. Our tolerance allows book publishers to thrive and get all types ideas around Europe as well as making them dependent on us as their publishing house.
