Success for English Colonization
The methods used by the English to colonize North America successfully, were mercantilism, culture, and government. Beginning in 1400’s, North America had confidently saw themselves as nature’s conception, therefore believing that god, animals, and humans shared the earth and powers within it (3). Within their society ruled by the eldest of family, they provided a living based on their location and held true to trust that possessions were provided by their god in nature. Despite beliefs, they had conflicts with others due to resources being taken away from them. On the other side of the map, English had faith that people of conquered land were a part of the world given to them by god (4). In trust, they were a catholic based religion and par took in the interest of the authority leading them in the bible; believing the holy land was put on earth for one to control and take use of it. Unlike Natives, they were ran by a combined feudal system including the pope. In conclusion, within these two differentiated cultures, the beginning of an English colonization begins.
As time continued on, the development of trade grew as well. In 1838, the birth of mercantilism formed in the colonies. Though this was used in the ownership of enslavement, it became one of the most successful abilities the English had because the workers could in fact work off their service instead of paying the other colonies. Another factor, was Tobacco. In the duration of time, the more tobacco grew the more profit was earned. Successfully, John Smith continued the “No work, No food” proposition and though it seemed unfair and cruel to some of the influences around, it was an enormous profit gain. The Atlantic Slave trade was taught along the way, in which slaves were transported and traded for expenses of goods. Due to the
Triangular Trade Routes they took, it increased sales and also prevented trade imbalances between the regions. The numbers were so great that Africans who came through the slave trade became the most numerous Old-World immigrants in both North and South America.
As mentioned above, I described the differences in how each colony was over ran.
Looking back in the era, England followed ways that centered on the assemblies. Assemblies, in text book definition is a group of persons gathered together, usually for a particular purpose, whether religious, political, educational, or social. Now applying that to the colonial politics, the royal governor in whom was appointed by the king had great amount of power due to the local assembly paying him every day he ruled. They forewent a crisis financially after the laws started to become a problem, being unpopular and unlisted to. Religiously, they had a less amount of people have the same beliefs as them which made new emotional boundaries and materialistic items. The Great Awakening occurred soon after, introducing M. Wiggleston and J. Edwards.
Wiggleston wrote a book “Day of Doom” about the last judgment in his perspective. In other words (similar to the apocalypse), creating a financial boom and stealing the #2 spot in sales behind the bible. And finally, the House of Burgesses was a success because it was indeed a small parliament similar to the one in England. Due to the success’ it was the first formal assembly in colonies and increased the stability of the region.
Lastly, the English and their hard life beliefs played a part in becoming the success of a
