After the project was completed, the women felt the need to continue to meet informally for mutual support. You can ban trading with city-states.” The World Congress effectively creates an opportunity for players to engage in peaceful aggression, but that’s not the extent of it.

The USA fi nished off humanity�s greatest war by dropping history�s most destructive weapons on cities, and then lied to the jubilant American people about whom it was dropped on and why .� In t he wake of dropping nuclear weapons on women and children, the USA had unprecedented global hegemony, controlled both sides of both major oceans, and possessed half of the world�s wealth and industrial capacity.� Then began the postwar boom, which was an era of economic prosperity never seen before or since, and I had the good fortune to be born in the midst of it.� Above all else, it was an economic event born of cheap energy and has been called the Golden Age of American Capitalism.� When energy ceased being cheap in the 1970s, the boom ended and the long decline set in, not just for the USA, but the world in general, which is the next chapter's subject.� Europe�s co nquest of Earth set numerous demographic trends in motion, some of which were new in the human journey.� Of the many calamities that humanity has inflicted onto its fellows, the greatest proportional one was when our distant ancestors, themselves descendants of the founder group that left Africa, drove all other human species to extinction, probably violently.� Also, all of the largest megafauna on three continents that had never before encountered humans were driven to extinction soon after humans arrived.� The next genocide of such proportion was 50 thousand years later with Europe�s conquest and �settling� of the Western Hemisphere and Australia .� The result of Europe�s exploitation of Africa, including the transatlantic slave trade and the rubber boom�s �philanthropic� genocide, is proportionally also one of the greatest disasters in the human journey.� Th e Arab slave trade also deserves �credit�: although it was not as intense as Europe�s rape of Africa, it lasted for longer and ultimately tallied more victims.� Africa, the Western Hemisphere, and Australia are all relatively underpopulated compared to Eurasia today, largely due to those holocausts primarily inflicted by European peoples.� The West�s immense debt to the rest of humanity may never be repaid.� The West rarely even acknowledges it.� Als o, peoples in Asia suffered demographic catastrophes as a result of Europe�s conquest, and Bengal�s rape is a seminal instance.� Asia�s proportion of the world�s population declined relative to Europe�s between 1750 and 1900 as it suffered under Europe's lash. [867] � India�s excess deaths under British hegemony have been estimated at nearly two billion. [868] But Eur ope received a �boost� by exploiting humanity and Earth, and key trends emerged that may see the West begin to repay its debt.� One trend appearing with the Industrial Revolution is called the demographic transition. � Preindustrial societies had high birth and death rates, and as industrialization progressed, several changes happened, which included: 1 Understanding Western Society, Combined Volume: A Brief History.

We may admit, however, that some valid truth is emphasized by this phrase. The idea of a "churchified" Empire was a failure. The Empire fell to pieces in bloody conflicts, degenerated in fraud, ambiguity and violence. It will remain for ever to witness to the creative effort of the Early Church, with its Byzantine theology, devotion and art. Perhaps it will become the most vital and sacred page in the mysterious book of human destiny, which is continuously being written The martyrdom of man.
