Guns, Germs and Steel: Why Europeans Came to Dominate the World in 7 Minutes

Оценок: 676 | Просмотров: 28280
Three hundred years ago something big happened. The western world began to look at the world with new scientific eyes. There was a problem with this, though. As scientists began to classify the world into different categories, they also began to divide the human species into sub-species. Because of this an authoritative justification of slavery and colonialism happened. People have suffered because of this for over three hundred years. And while many people back in the day argue that the dominance of Europeans was because its race was “superior” to those of Africa, China, the Americans, etc. The truth is that their power really came from luck. Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thought.monkey/ Script: In 1997 a man named Jared Diamond published a book called Guns, Germs, and Steel. The book was inspired by a question that a New Guinean man named Yali asked him. One day Yali asked Diamond, “why is it that you white people developed so much cargo and brought it to New Guinea, but we black people had little cargo of our own?” Diamond spends his book answering this question. He details evidence that points to the environment rather than biological differences between different groups of people, for their success. He goes back over 13,000 years to discover why the west rather than the east, Africa, or the Native Americans, have dominated the world. The argument he points to is the European dominance is a result of opportunity and necessity rather than any kind of particular ingenuity. That there was a chain of events that led them to the position they are in. If we go back far enough into history we can look at these developments. The road to such inequality began when people stopped being hunter-gatherers and started farming. When this happens, people don’t have to spend all their time looking for food to eat and instead can plant, harvest, and store a surplus of food. With enough food stored, people can have free time and do stuff like build cities, develop states, and consolidate those states into empires. It’s not quite as easy as it sounds, however. A number of factors must be in your favor in order to make the transition from hunting-gathering to farming. First you have to have crops that are high in nutrients which can also be stored. And you need a climate that is dry enough that will allow storage. You also need animals that can be domesticated by humans and used to help with the farming process. When you have control of these things, you can make extra food which can be used to feed lots of people who can grow the population, learn other things, and innovate socially and technologically. At this point societies start to become hierarchical and political structures develop that lead to nations being built. Another key in explaining that dominance of Europe is disease. And animal domestication had a lot to do with this. Many of the diseases that have wiped out enormous populations in Europe and Asia are a consequence of people living in close proximity with animals. Diseases like smallpox, measles, and influenza all come from living close to animals. Over hundreds of years exposure to these diseases have allowed Eurasians to develop resistances toward them. As they traveled they also took these diseases wherever they went – and when they came into contact with people who have never been exposed to them, the deaths of millions resulted. Europeans were able to adopt the animals and plants of Southwest Asia, and their agricultural techniques over thousands of years ago. By 1000 CE pretty much all of Europe had adopted the plants and methods of Southwest Asia. Because societies in Eurasia were able to produce a crop surplus and develop cities, people were able to specialize in skills outside of basic survival. People like craftsmen and scribes made Eurasian societies grow economically and technologically much faster than hunter-gatherers. These advantages eventually led the people of one part of Eurasia – Europe – to conquer the world using technological advances like guns and steel. Even today as the world has entered a more globalized era, the difference in wealth and power is huge between people who have descended from western Europeans and everyone else. In fact if you look at a list of the richest people in the world, the majority are people who have descended from western Europeans. Most of us don’t stop to think about it, but the consequences of geographical and environmental luck have had a lasting impact on each and every one of our lives today.

The compas, guns, germs and steel. None of which the Europeans invented

Here's my take. Stage 1: Geography enabled Eurasia to be the first to form centralized regimes or states. They got a head start on the rest of the world. Stage 2: The great Eurasian empires: China, Rome, India, the Muslims, they all got really, really wealthy. They rested on their laurels. Any infighting was fought over the same pie. The sciences proceeded at a comparably leisurely pace, cooped up in curios, scholar dens, and limited applications except maybe for medicine. Stage 3: Enter the period around the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. China, India, and the Muslim world were still rich. Europe after Rome was in squalor. They knew there was a bigger pie out there. They were hungry for progress. They had every incentive to expand and to actually build upon existing science and technology. States promoted large-scale ventures that were latched onto by private business. The West arrived. Same thing happened in Meiji Japan when they saw they were at the bottom. They had the incentive to modernize. Stage 4: The other Asian countries follow suit. So, a strong urge to progress, plus a strong state regime, and boom. Today more or less tribal-minded societies on which a state structure was foisted rather awkwardly by colonialism do not have the latter, while dictatorships awash in oil lack the former.

scarface8788776hhfg (22 дня назад)
It's not luck. It was the climate. And every little thing our ancestors did with their time. Northern Europe is more advanced and more superior than Southern Europe for example (not talking bout olden times: Roman emp.) . Because their ancestors had to use their ingenuity to fight the colder enviornment. they had to have warmth and shelter and usually had to do a lot more to make their lives suitable than most other cultures.. master ship builders craftsmen and unmatched in engineering (especially Germany) They had to farm but not just particularly for personal need to support the fellow man thinking beyond them selves (depending on heritage or religion of course stubborn as hell) it didnt just come to a european person out the sky either how to fertilize land and irrigate water it's TRUE it wasnt just luck fr.. they had to figure it out too just a long long long time ago. In communities they lived together and congregated and shared ideas and pride for their people yearning for knowledge. Nobody could ever blame the Europeans for being superior (aryans, Germanic peoples and those of nordic background honestly being superior). It was the people who came before and what they did. What they had to do simple and complex craft of many kinds lead this world where most inventions and breakthroughs came from Germans and Dutch and Engilsh and they weren't just in a great society by accident. Nothing just appears. They weren't just privileged people who had nothing other than access to resources or some nonsense.. It wasn't given they went there it didn't come to the cradle of humanity to take them. their ancestors did that with their own learnings and predisposition to be great thinkers and problem solvers ambitious folks as well. For them. It's always be the number one priority the next generation. It started when they arrived in Europe. they didnt waste their time always improving, questioning. Being more than the animal we are not waiting for what just lies right in front of you like the good 150,000 years even longer that Africa took to make no progress none it's the saddest fact of our whole species where we began for Christ's sake. With the bounty of natural resources that the people couldn't understand or even question busy with other affairs I assume...... and whoever was dicking around in the Americas all that time when they're still primitive in the 1600s . any peoples who were either too comfortable or constantly fighting each other. And people ask this question about how it happened.. it's a stupid one.. it happened. And it was no accident they sought more than the rest of the world. It has nothing to do with the fact they had firearms and advancements God didnt bestow them with guns and money. SOMEONE HAD TO INVENT DESIGN PRODUCE CREATE YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE. Its luck they got there though right right. So say if the Africans took Europe then they would see the same successs because Europe is just so perfect?? Even considering the time that has already been granted to them on the most beautiful continent on this earth? With a wealth of natural resources but oh wait that takes ingenuity, cooperation and civility. Also some ambition. The basis of intelligent society.. its obvious who was busy all this time. There isn't luck in this world. Nobody will ever accomplish something great by not trying or thinking. The rest of the intelligent world developed around the rise and rule of Europeans.

Bloody Smile (1 месяц назад)
Totally not because of a higher average IQ and physical fitness, inventing the gun (fire-lances are not guns), no, even when every other continent had more natural resources, it was because of luck, doesn´t matter that while Europe has always flourished!, what are you racist, It´s not like Europeans lived in villas and Victorian homes while Africans, South Asians, And Amerindians were living in huts!.
Daniel Mk (30 дней назад)
Bloody Smile And europeans did not invented the guns, the chinese invented it.
Daniel Mk (30 дней назад)
Bloody Smile Not all africans and amerindians were living in huts. They had a lot of buildings are castles of straw, mud and stone. Remember that europeans just got their "vitorian villages" by influence of earlier architecture, like Arab and greek architecture that was spread by Roman Empire, like the wheel and script(rare in Europe before Rome Empire), before that they just didnt lived in huts because Europe is very cold and they needed to get protected. Take a look at the old world civilizations, only Greece(a MEDITERRANEAN europe civilization) was there. https://www.google.com.br/amp/s/br.pinterest.com/amp/pin/561261172299906556/?source=images

I'll address the elephant in the room... Christianity. Christianity was one of the major things that allowed Europe to flourish. Whether you hate the religion or not, it played a massive role in building Europe's power and influence up. It's no coincidence that when the Pagan, Nordic, etc. Gods were put to rest, and Christianity took hold, that Europe while still at war often, stabilized enough to let things start developing. It essentially "tamed" the barbarians and helped build larger social structures, as well as keep monarchs in check (there was an authority higher then the monarch). And it was rather flexible (compared to other religions at the time) not promoting rituals that were harmful to society (human sacrifices, crop burning tributes, etc.) but allowing those to do as they wish so long as they followed the code of conduct (basically don't be an evil asshole). It's actually kind of ironic... that a religion condemning a majority of violence (not all, but a lot), was such a hit among the most violent population on Earth.

India and China are two of the oldest civilizations and had a proper structure,society and scientific technology right from ancient times. I wonder why they never took advantage of their development like the Europeans did. India, if not for petty differences between different kingdoms would never have been conquered by Britain and could have been a superpower in today's time.
scarface8788776hhfg (22 дня назад)
It's the climate the Northern Europeans faced that is the biggest factor believe it or not. The Chinese and Indians are both in more temperate environments. In the North of Europe it's cold and it made nordic Europeans and Germanic peoples into a people of craft. Not to mention all the ships they had been building for 1500 years. Not just any ships they're engineering is unmatched even in other areas of craft Germany has the most sound and intelligent engineers and great design. Even from many years ago before Germany's unifucation. Plus the way they congregated and shared knowledge (ik thats stupid to say when the Indians and Chinese did too of course) but they are intelligent without any learning because they were always people of craft strategy and sound engineering. No body could rival something the world couldn't understand yet.

Not going to mention Darwin was the originator of this? Or the full name.of his famous theory? Your explanations fail to show how the world would be any better had this not happened, or if these systems were removed. Because the world wouldn't be better off. It has never been better for humanity than it is today. Many of these oppressed countries are worse off once left to their own devices. Congo, and Sudan come to mind

I think that competition in Europe is the most valid explanation. Mountains, rivers, and other natural barriers encouraged the natural selection of societies in Europe more-so than the broader expanses of plains or thick jungles did in the Americas, Africa, and Asia. One could easily have expected China to have become dominant based on their early history: the Chinese invented/discovered paper, gunpowder, and silk, in addition to maintaining a vast spice trade. However, it was Europe that put the gunpowder to use as weaponry to fight its enemies within. Europe used paper as a means to develop itself religiously, creating a motive to spread Christianity through whatever means necessary. Buddhism, in contrast, spread through Asia more peacefully. As for spices, Europe wanted what China already had. Thus, the rise of Europe over China can be pinpointed as happening at the Chinese defeat in the Opium Wars, when Britain's more advanced weaponry (and navy in particular) forced China to stay open to trade. Essentially, Europe competed within itself by developing Asian technologies. When Asia failed to develop these technologies to the same extent, Europe managed to assert dominance there. The Americas quickly fell when the Europeans introduced diseases the native populations had no immunity to, killing 80-90% of American natives. Australia faced a similar fate, I believe. The Americas were soon converted into New Europe and benefitted from European advancements, while Africa was colonized for its resources and Asia isolated itself.

Mr Football (3 месяца назад)
Sam C I'll tell you the real reason... I don't care who agrees or disagrees, but this is the actual truth (it's a long one, so be patient)... Africa was the beginning of humanity and everything started from there (as proven by science and history). Now when God sent some Angels (including the devil) to watch over humans, they taught us how to live in a more advanced way, but as the devil and his Angels got corrupt they started teaching us how to do magic (voodoo), create weapons for war etc. So God made the devil and his angels become the fallen angels and now humans were left to fend for themselves... Now because this was all in Africa, that is why Africa is so spiritual and so corrupt but as for the ones that spreaded out through the world they lost connections with the Angelic teachings and became backwards, and quiet. Hence why ancient Europeans, Native Americans, Aztecs etc were slacking compared to Africa, Middle East & Asia at that time... Now the 1st set of humans that utilized those Angelic teachings were Egyptians, Mesopotamians(Middle East), Shang (China) & Greece. The descendants of Noah's sons... Ham, Japheth & Shem (Ham=Africa, Japheth= Europe & East Asia and Shem= Middle East & South Asia.) Now as time went on, religion came into the world starting with Judaism, which is why Israel became civilized & more modern compared to the rest. But due to consistent disobedience, they were repetitively invaded and lost their ways... Then Christianity came into the world through Jesus's disciples and Ethiopia were the first nation to adopt it and became the most civilized African country at that time... But based on geographic locations they couldn't spread it through other Sub-Saharan African countries because if they did and all the Sub-Saharan African counties adopted Christianity, they would've became so civilized that they wouldn't have been so tribal and lacked the knowledge to advance themselves before the Europeans came and traded with them! By the time that happens, Africans would've been trading with Europeans on THEIR terms and slavery wouldn't have happened and if it did then it wouldn't have been outrageous like this. And because Christianity would've united Africans like how Europeans were united through Christianity... They would've been civilized enough to use their resources properly and probably would've had guns before the Europeans, in case they tried any funny business like they did, but this time they would be ready for them if that happens. Look at the Middle East & North Africa, Islam civilized them, that's why the Caliphate Empires at the time were very powerful & modernized... But due to internal conflicts they were weakened but that's because Arabs are too hard headed & passionate! Which lead to internal differences. But with Christianity in Sub-Saharan Africa they would probably be like, The Caribbeans are like now (because The Caribbeans are modernized now) but with more resources!!! So to summarise my LONG explanation ( I apologize but it was needed) Religion can civilize & modernize Humanity... If Africa were civilized through Christianity the Sub-Saharan countries wouldn't have had that betrayal mentality to sell their brothers & sisters!!! Plus the Europeans used the excuse of the fact that they were tribal, satanic & backwards to enslave them and bring Christianity to their land... But if they adopted Christianity like how Ethiopians did, this is why to this day, Ethiopians are not a colonized country, there was no leverage to use against them but because they was isolated, there was only so much they can do! But to continue... With Christianity they would've been ahead of the Europeans & utilized themselves so far that there would be no leverage for the Europeans to use against them while they trade with them!!! And lastly with Christianity in Sub-Sahara Africa first... They wouldn't have allowed the Europeans to taint & white-wash the religion as they have today!!! The oldest bible is in Ethiopia, remember that!!! Africa was & always will be the truth!!!!!!!

To everyone who says it wasn't luck, it was IQ Please disprove that around 90% of Amerindians died to disease as opposed to combat. Please disprove the fact that they were outmanned and outgunned, and still managed to fight Europeans off for centuries. Then, and only then, will I say it was not luck but skill. Until then, I doubt your Euro-centric narrative. Also, a (supposed and likely false) genetic tendency towards lower IQ clearly did not stop Amerindians from creating societies and civilization. The Mexica, Olmec, Maya, Tlaxcallans, Teotihuacans, Toltecs and Inca prove this to be true. They fell not to European strength or weaponry (which in fact was actually inefficient there) but instead to disease or internal conflict. Saying "but they had higher IQ" changes nothing. It's clearly not the reason
scarface8788776hhfg (21 день назад)
They were outmanned and out gunned because the Europeans were great innovators inventors strategists. The cold In the European north forced the people of nordic descent and Germanic peoples to create items innovations to make life simpler from the beginning of their time. From shelter to clothes to weaponry. To transportation and ship making. Farming isn't as easy in the north they asked themselves many questions how to escape the cold? and how to steadily feed themselves and store foods to outlast the winter? The British German and Dutch contributed to the making of the modern world today. Dealing with the European climate forced their ancestors to innovate and create regularly every waking day. They aren't special the climate was just an incentive to act and improve constantly. To become more intelligent more prepared. It wasnt luck surely that's just what temperance does to a human. Makes them think less. Comfort doesn't do nothing but cause ignorance. Cause any empire society or government isn't a mistake it is built formed . Did they steal Europe?? Dashed from the cradle of humanity and nabbed dibs asap no😂 Thank the British for the combustion engine and the Germans for the diseal engine. Two very important human creations.. that the world would severely miss😂😂 Say that asians actually came to colonize Europe. Would they have invented all the technology and advance as far the germans with things such as the electron telescope.. scanning tunneling telescope?? The taximeter the oscilloscope... perhaps they could have but it was the worlds greatest engineers. Who knows but if Europeans origin was somewhere else I believe that their absence would see them manifest in another form way theres something about European ambition and the desire to be more than just a man

For a long time, the Amerindians were more technologically advanced than the Europeans. They developed farming, large cities, and science. The Mayans were fantastic at math! While Europe eventually possessed the same technology, they did so by taking from the Arabs, Africans, and Asians and developing that technology further through their internal competition. Eventually the Europeans outpaced the Amerindians and happened to begin colonizing at the same time.

Jared Diamond's argument is too reductionist. I'm not happy with his book's geographical determinism. Geography (and it's environmental assumptions) are not constant! Temperatures, moisture levels etc fluctuate a lot! Which point in time, or which time frame is Jared using to set his geographical initial conditions? Search up temperature variations through time. Search up ENSO. Search up precipitation levels. Depending on the time span, we can yield very different results. That's the problem with trying to use a hard science (classical physicist maybe?) approach to the world. History is much more like quantum mechanics. It's so unpredictable. We have to come up with some kind of analogous Uncertainty Principle for historical method and reduction.

Some of that are fair points. Also - our understanding of history is forever changing. Some of his points are now known to be outdated as new information has arisen (for example his understanding of what happened on Rapa Nui/Easter Island in 'Collapse' is different than what many more recent historians and archaeologists believe). It is an interpretation of the facts. If this isn't what happened then, please let us know what your opinion is? Also - this is an incredibly brief summary of a summary of human history. It's not going to cover everything!

Africans have been around a steady 150,000+ years and cant make use of that beautiful continent full of natural resources.. the world developed around them. Who knows how many civilizations came and gone and African tribes are still around until about well now likely. If theres a God he put them there so they could have it easy.

Most useful modern inventions are from Europeans or people of descent. Yunno like the combustion engine from the British or the diesel engine or TV from the Germans and the Dutch invented what you use as bluetooth and the freaking submarine.. most other useful things you can possibly think of came from your English Dutch and Germans. They make the world what it is.. they really created the modern world. Did the Jews lend a hand with a couple neat creations?? I dont think so.. smart but selfish and not applied. But not to mention the European will, power, capacity, the inventions and advancements that helped them to conquer the world. It was for sure far from luck. It was more like manifestation of the ship building, complex craftmsnship ,basic engineering over the last good 1500 years that conquered the world

The Europeans became dominate because of trade and the profit motive. BTW the slave trade from Africa predated Europe and continues to this day.
Mr Football (3 месяца назад)
Lenny Nova I'll tell you the real reason... I don't care who agrees or disagrees, but this is the actual truth (it's a long one, so be patient)... Africa was the beginning of humanity and everything started from there (as proven by science and history). Now when God sent some Angels (including the devil) to watch over humans, they taught us how to live in a more advanced way, but as the devil and his Angels got corrupt they started teaching us how to do magic (voodoo), create weapons for war etc. So God made the devil and his angels become the fallen angels and now humans were left to fend for themselves... Now because this was all in Africa, that is why Africa is so spiritual and so corrupt but as for the ones that spreaded out through the world they lost connections with the Angelic teachings and became backwards, and quiet. Hence why ancient Europeans, Native Americans, Aztecs etc were slacking compared to Africa, Middle East & Asia at that time... Now the 1st set of humans that utilized those Angelic teachings were Egyptians, Mesopotamians(Middle East), Shang (China) & Greece. The descendants of Noah's sons... Ham, Japheth & Shem (Ham=Africa, Japheth= Europe & East Asia and Shem= Middle East & South Asia.) Now as time went on, religion came into the world starting with Judaism, which is why Israel became civilized & more modern compared to the rest. But due to consistent disobedience, they were repetitively invaded and lost their ways... Then Christianity came into the world through Jesus's disciples and Ethiopia were the first nation to adopt it and became the most civilized African country at that time... But based on geographic locations they couldn't spread it through other Sub-Saharan African countries because if they did and all the Sub-Saharan African counties adopted Christianity, they would've became so civilized that they wouldn't have been so tribal and lacked the knowledge to advance themselves before the Europeans came and traded with them! By the time that happens, Africans would've been trading with Europeans on THEIR terms and slavery wouldn't have happened and if it did then it wouldn't have been outrageous like this. And because Christianity would've united us like how Europeans were united through Christianity... We would've been civilized enough to use our resources properly and probably would've had guns before the Europeans, in case they tried any funny business like they did, but this time we would be ready for them if that happens. Look at the Middle East & North Africa, Islam civilized them, that's why the Caliphate Empires at the time were very powerful & modernized... But due to internal conflicts they were weakened but that's because Arabs are too hard headed & passionate! Which lead to internal differences. But with Christianity in Sub-Saharan Africa they would probably be like, The Caribbeans are like now (because The Caribbeans are modernized now) but with more resources!!! So to summarise my LONG explanation ( I apologize but it was needed) Religion can civilize & modernize Humanity... So to answer your question if we were civilized through Christianity the Sub-Saharan countries wouldn't have had that betrayal mentality to sell their brothers & sisters!!! Plus the Europeans used the excuse of the fact that they were tribal, satanic & backwards to enslave them and bring Christianity to their land... But if they adopted Christianity like how Ethiopians did, this is why to this day, Ethiopians are not a colonized country, there was no leverage to use against them but because they was isolated, there was only so much they can do! But to continue... With Christianity they would've been ahead of the Europeans & utilized themselves so far that there would be no leverage for the Europeans to use against them while they trade with them!!! And lastly with Christianity in Sub-Sahara Africa first... They wouldn't have allowed the Europeans to taint & white-wash the religion as they have today!!! The oldest bible is in Ethiopia, remember that!!! Africa was & always will be the truth!!!!!!!

+混蛋你他妈的 lucky but somehow through miracle we made it out of the 1300s hardly. Either way aside from that. European ancestors were master creators spending time building ships, mastering engineering, and asking the right questions. In northern Europe youll find your very smartest. Dutch British Germans who created the modern world most useful inventions and advancements because the people before them were learning. In The north the cold made them build. The cold made them think. How do I stay warm? It snows how will I eat? So many questions to answer. It all comes back to knowledge not acquired things from academics and junk.. from experience. From everything they ever built or made. Everything they discovered and learned made the Europeans the worlds intellectuals. The engineering design and production could never be match especially Germany's. The greatest engineers on this planet
scarface8788776hhfg (22 дня назад)
They are not the biggest most physical people except for descendants of nordic peoples or aryans. But they are intelligent and most useful inventions came from Dutch the British and Germans. They are so profencient with engineering and creating because of a good 1500 years of ship building, dealing with the cold environment, and always thinking. They do have such a passion dont they. No it wasn't luck though buddy. It was the people who lived before and the things they did and what their lives consisted of which was by no chance wasted

Not only that, you claim I’m Asian, why? Because I make your intellect feel inferior because you don’t understand the simplicity of what I described? I’m sorry to be filled with hubris, but your comment really made me feel good, thanks for that! If you would like to explain your reasoning for why the bubonic plague has anything to do with my comment I would be greatly obliged to listen. In fact, if anything, your comment proves my statement even more, as the bubonic plague should have killed all of Europe due to its fatality rates that were only rising, the fact they survived that deathly outbreak only adds to the statement that Europeans had massive luck on their side. But please, I’d be happy too see where you are coming from, so feel free to reply with a comment that adds value to your opinion!

People like you sitting behind their computers thinking they know everything because they watch youtube vids about it irritates me, esspecially when they are talking about shit they don't really understands. Stop comparing Ethiopia to other countries, all countries are different and grow different and even if the government should care more for their people it really feels like you are talking against the Ethiopian people and country, not the government.

Paneuropäischer Nationalismus I don't think you understood what I had written before. ETHIOPIA IS AN AFRICAN NATION, THEY ARE MORE VULNERABLE THAN COUNTRIES OUTSIDE AFRICA. It is true though that South Korea had it very hard after the korean war but now they are growing fast, but what the problem is with Ethiopia is that the governments corruption and the politicians in the country putting Ethiopia's money in their pockets has made it poorer, this has become an unwanted tradition in Ethiopia. Plus, I knew that Eritrea was a part of Ethiopia. And Poland had oil for 70 years which could have given them a lot of oil i mean oil was found in Qatar for nearly 100 years ago and today they are the worlds richest country.

can you then disprove the fact that around 90% of Amerindians died to disease? Because I doubt Europeans could have taken the Americas otherwise. In fact, they had trouble defeating the crippled, outgunned, outnumbered 10% that remained. Luck was the major factor. If you can prove Europeans would have done the same in a different circumstance, I would love to hear it.

Is this a joke? Just got lucky? This sounds like a bunch of excuses. You say stuff like west to east and not north to south. So you are saying that farming is impossible in Iowa????? Africa has too many areas with varied weather?????? So once again, Iowa can not be a farming community due to all the crazy weather in North America?????? This is garbage.
hi names lael (11 месяцев назад)
enlil7billion 2) you're telling me the people who had all these time to work on reffing farming knew something the natives didn't know about farming. here's why you didn't see much coming from these particular areas, in a hunter gather society time is energy, so if you try something new and it fails you've just wasted important energy you're not gonna get back, and have put everyone in danger. my explanation Is not an excuse, it's exactly that an explanation. are you gonna say a phycologist is making "excuses" for a murderer because he gives reasons for why he is the way he is, no (at least I hope not, or that'd make you a FUCKING moron).

This might be the greatest question of all time right behind IS THERE A GOD and WHY ARE WE HERE. The next major question is/were Sub Saharan Africa and other areas so massively primitive up to not very long ago. This was the question that Jared Diamond is really trying to answer. He makes excuses for the extreme primitive living of these groups in the modern age because to not do this would be a HORRIBLE thing to do :-). The other gentleman in this interview is far more logical and is not blinded by trying to pussy foot around reality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5AEOztnEag All thought Monkey is doing is regurgitating what Jared Diamond said in his book. How much land area is needed to move domesticated plants? All the excuses is just laughable. Parts of Europe/Asia has nearly zero SUN during the day. Massive amounts of snow fall, deserts like anywhere else and jungles and the largest mountain range on the planet. So you are saying that Africa just fell short of the amount of area needed to become "civilized" and be the powerhouse of the world? Did not the Muslims of North Africa and the Near east (FIRST FARMERS) bring goats and sheep and other animals that Sub-Saharan Africans have to this day? Was this not around 700AD? Africa probably has many advantages and yet???????????????????????????? All we get is a bunch of excuses???????? Europeans were given less and they turned it in to more, LOL. Does that statement bother you and if so why? Why is it that Europeans were able to turn Iowa into a farming POWERHOUSE. Farming in AFRICA (POWER FARMING AFRICA), LOL. Shit, there are a ton of videos of serious farming going on now that Europeans are involved. I suppose that tractor just fell from the sky and we all lucked out on it??????

bla fork: As far as Africa creating 2 kingdoms at some point in time, you can take that up with the Thought Monkey. 2. Not sure what you are saying. What I am saying is this place called Iowa was and is just a place and this place exist now and in the past. For some reason thought monkey says that the people that lived in this place before (Eurasians) showed up were incapable of farming due to this area being on a continent that stretch too much from N to S and not E to W. Or this patch of land in North America now called Iowa was incapable of farming under the prior people due to the entire continent having too extreme of weather. Anyone who is rational would conclude that these new PEOPLE that came to this area called Iowa brought with them thee knowledge and the skills that they developed to Iowa and has turned Iowa into a FARMING power house. 3, All you need to do is open your eyes and use your brain. What have I said that is not registering for you? Is it that I think Europe being a dominant power in the world is more than blind silly luck????? Is that the part you are having trouble or an issue with? 4. Please explain? I could make up a bunch of crap to try to say why it was the USA and not Nigeria that landed on the moon. I could say something like the continent of Africa is too starry at night so they people did not feel the need to go there due to them feeling like they were already there. Due to this the USA was lucky to land on the moon. I am just saying that the video above is stupid and such a stretch that it is laughable. The real question is why were these other groups unlucky. Why is it that they could not mustard up farming or the wheel and other simple things.
hi names lael (11 месяцев назад)
enlil7billion 1 you do know that Africa has produced kingdoms before 2, yea the fact that this the modern day, with modern equipment that doesn't explain why Iowa can hold different crops at all 3, we're (at least I'm not) asking you what sources you use to think, I'm asking you if you have any evedince to back yourself up with and I think thought monkey just wants to know why you think this way 4, the moon... really. that's what you're gonna use.

The real reason Europe became the powerhouse they are today... Was because of Christianity! Afro-Caribbeans are in the same position as Latin-Americans, both manipulated by Europe and became the slacking continent they are today... If they both embraced Christianity before Europe, it would've civilized & modernized them way before the Europeans got to them... Because I believe that religion can civilize humanity, that's why the Europeans (plus USA & Canada) are so ahead because they embraced Christianity and used those teachings to modernize them! So as I was saying... If the Afro-Caribbeans & Latin-Americans adopted Christianity on their terms it would have upgraded them along with creating a more unified continent and then, by the time the Europeans came, they will see them as equals and start trading with them on THEIR terms!!! Islam is also a good religion, that's why the Middle East were so powerful & modernized, but because The Arabs are so hard headed & passionate it created differences within each tribes and caused their Muslim Empire to weaken, thus creating a bad look on Islam & causing the problems in The Middle East today! And Judaism is for the Israelites... So Christianity would be the better option👌! The only problem is that without technology, media, internet, advanced transport etc. It would be hard to reach out to the Latin Americans because all the action at that time was within Africa, Middle East, Asia & parts of Europe... So yeah unless God sent one more profit after Jesus Christ and he was born within The Americas lol!!!

Mostly correct until the last part of the video. The chinese sailed across the oceans, to south east asia etc and africa etc earlier than the europeans under Admiral Zheng He / Cheng Ho (you can check for records, even the boats/ships were huge). They could have colonised then, but it's a philosophical difference. Over in the west you have darwinism and survival of the fittest etc hence it's okay to invade and colonise. Over at the east, confucianism was popular, so even when China could colonise, they wouldn't. Chinese society already had what they need, they wouldn't invade, colonise others just to gain more while inflicting damage on "others". Against the chinese moral code. Difference of moral code, it's the same for Japanese who will never surrender they will rather do "harakiri" to avoid bringing shame in losing battles.

Not really accurate, it was mostly a personal decision by a new emperor that removed china as a competitor to european expansion and colonization. Though the traditional european mindset is more suited to successful expansion and warefare than the chinese as they seem to be more innovative amd quicker to adapt.
Ducky McDuckface (3 месяца назад)
That's bullshit, China just had no need to colonise africa. What would they gain from it? They had no competition around them so having large colonies makes no sense. THe reason why Europeans colonised so much is because if they didn't they would get conquered by neighbouring countries. It's why even small countries like Belgium and the Netherlands had colonies at one point.

I think China does colonize but not necessarily outside their sphere of influence. Tibet, Xinjiang, and Vietnam, and once upon a time Korea was integrated into the Han-Tang-Qing China. Yes Admiral Zheng did bring 300 ships with 27,000 men to Kenya East Africa but did not colonize because it was a projection of power and nothing of state-sponsor colonization which the European powers would do later. I do agree with the narrator of the video that it was monolithic entity called China with complacency that hindered its progress. It's funny enough that Australia was already discovered by the Chinese but it would later be colonized and transformed into an Anglophone common-wealth state.

Why did the whites feel the need to be thee psychopathic criminals, they claim to despise? They made laws against the very acts they were committing. Why did they feel the savage need to control others? To pillage the globe with a mad man's mind with the heartless reasonings of one million demons. Having a blood thirst no man could match and a tireless dedication of destruction. Unbelievably deceptive with their suits and ties, only to set an perception of a professional and refined individual. Never to be perceived as the clinical sociopath he internally suffers from, but is. Only to reveal his demons when he sentence to prison, shooting you dead in the streets, denying you health care & employment, lynchings, media filth and drugs. Their barriers and policies are design to play against you unless you get lucky. To have millionaire African Americans is only allowed for anyone to feel, negativity against them isn't real. And you would think that, until the African Americans self destruct, and derail their lives in some freaky way. We are seeing wealth does not bring contentment or freedom. And the famous still talk against the powers that be, after their fight to become rich and famous. Some thing is wrong with that. Nobody seems to show the on lookers, hey...it's all that...for real. And they can't bring up all of their friends and family to the level that would suffice them financially. This world is showing to much misery and self destruction no matter the face of prestige. But the blacks are the world's most despised, discarded racial group on the planet. And we are tired of this reality, wether it's by the hands of blacks against blacks, or cops killing blacks. This takes me back to these mentally diseased...whites. If they would have just left SLAVERY alone. No one would've been able to level against them, one ill willed charge. But their hate made them slaves, to their evil and unbridled wickedness. That act of abduction and their psychotic inhuman savagery, ROCKED all who were enslaved. No man EDUCATED or NOT got dealt with unjustly. Watch any video on our history from SLAVERY to CIVIL RIGHTS and recent cop shootings. Blacks can't catch a break of civil reasoning. When whites implementing SLAVERY they gained POWER from our labor. We enabled WHITE POWER from Black Labor. We created their wealth being under control. Their ancestors deeds caused their control to still be in place. And our status in the world to still be deplorable. The cold dead hearts of these sub human demons, our labor set them on THRONES. Free labor, worked to death has done that. They would have never dealt with lazy slaves.

I'll tell you the real reason... I don't care who agrees or disagrees, but this is the actual truth (it's a long one, so be patient)... Africa was the beginning of humanity and everything started from there (as proven by science and history). Now when God sent some Angels (including the devil) to watch over humans, they taught us how to live in a more advanced way, but as the devil and his Angels got corrupt they started teaching us how to do magic (voodoo), create weapons for war etc. So God made the devil and his angels become the fallen angels and now humans were left to fend for themselves... Now because this was all in Africa, that is why Africa is so spiritual and so corrupt but as for the ones that spreaded out through the world they lost connections with the Angelic teachings and became backwards, and quiet. Hence why ancient Europeans, Native Americans, Aztecs etc were slacking compared to Africa, Middle East & Asia at that time... Now the 1st set of humans that utilized those Angelic teachings were Egyptians, Mesopotamians(Middle East), Shang (China) & Greece. The descendants of Noah's sons... Ham, Japheth & Shem (Ham=Africa, Japheth= Europe & East Asia and Shem= Middle East & South Asia.) Now as time went on, religion came into the world starting with Judaism, which is why Israel became civilized & more modern compared to the rest. But due to consistent disobedience, they were repetitively invaded and lost their ways... Then Christianity came into the world through Jesus's disciples and Ethiopia were the first nation to adopt it and became the most civilized African country at that time... But based on geographic locations they couldn't spread it through other Sub-Saharan African countries because if they did and all the Sub-Saharan African counties adopted Christianity, they would've became so civilized that they wouldn't have been so tribal and lacked the knowledge to advance themselves before the Europeans came and traded with them! By the time that happens, Africans would've been trading with Europeans on THEIR terms and slavery wouldn't have happened and if it did then it wouldn't have been outrageous like this. And because Christianity would've united Africans like how Europeans were united through Christianity... They would've been civilized enough to use their resources properly and probably would've had guns before the Europeans, in case they tried any funny business like they did, but this time they would be ready for them if that happens. Look at the Middle East & North Africa, Islam civilized them, that's why the Caliphate Empires at the time were very powerful & modernized... But due to internal conflicts they were weakened but that's because Arabs are too hard headed & passionate! Which lead to internal differences. But with Christianity in Sub-Saharan Africa they would probably be like, The Caribbeans are like now (because The Caribbeans are modernized now) but with more resources!!! So to summarise my LONG explanation ( I apologize but it was needed) Religion can civilize & modernize Humanity... If Africa were civilized through Christianity the Sub-Saharan countries wouldn't have had that betrayal mentality to sell their brothers & sisters!!! Plus the Europeans used the excuse of the fact that they were tribal, satanic & backwards to enslave them and bring Christianity to their land... But if they adopted Christianity like how Ethiopians did, this is why to this day, Ethiopians are not a colonized country, there was no leverage to use against them but because they was isolated, there was only so much they can do! But to continue... With Christianity they would've been ahead of the Europeans & utilized themselves so far that there would be no leverage for the Europeans to use against them while they trade with them!!! And lastly with Christianity in Sub-Sahara Africa first... They wouldn't have allowed the Europeans to taint & white-wash the religion as they have today!!! The oldest bible is in Ethiopia, remember that!!! Africa was & always will be the truth!!!!!!!

"been squatting there ever since" except the fact that whites in africa are currently getting murdered and discriminated against on the basis of race... "ever since and then have the audacity to pass laws criminalizing the very acts they did to get what they have" since you are obviously unaware of cultural changes in europe between 16th and 21st century, i'll just direct you to google.com "Then they embrace a fictional god (christ ) who forgives them of every theft and murder they have committed" meanwhile blacks embrace a fictional god (allah) who demands killing of 80%+ of the world's population because they aren't true muslims... "But through it all blacks are still beneath them even though our history is no where near as bloody and depraved as theirs" guess what, you cannot even compete with whites on equal terms (in the us for example). black men commit ~52% of all murders in the us, despite being only 3-4% of the population. blacks have the highest single-motherhood rate in the us. black poverty rates are 3-4 times those of whites . so instead of spewing out anti-white bullshit on the internet, go tell your niggas to get educated, get jobs, get married, stop leeching off of taxpayers (welfare) and to stop killing each other...

Northern Europe is more advanced and more superior than even southern Europe for example (not talking bout olden times: Roman emp.) . Because their ancestors had to use their ingenuity to fight the colder enviornment. they had to have clothes and shelter and usually had to do a lot more to make their lives suitable than most other cultures.. They had to farm but not just particularly for personal need to support the fellow man (depending on heritage or religion of course stubborn as hell) it didnt just come to a european person out the sky either how to fertilize land and irrigate water it's TRUE it wasnt just luck fr.. they lived together and congregated and shared ideas and pride for their people yearning for knowledge. Nobody could ever blame the Europeans for being superior (aryans, Germanic peoples and those of nordic background honestly being superior). It was the people who came before and what they did. What they had to do simple and complex craft of many kinds lead this world where most inventions and breakthroughs came from Germans and Dutch and Engilsh and they weren't just in a great society by accident. Nothing just appears. They weren't just privileged people who had nothing other than access to resources or some nonsense.. their ancestors did that with their own learnings and predisposition to be great thinkers and problem solvers. For them. It's always should be the number one priority the next generation. It started when they arrived they didnt waste their time and always improved. Not waiting and accepting what just lies right in front of you like Africa and whoever was dicking around in the Americas all that time when they're still primitive in the 1600s enough time to move stone for temples but not enough to really question why or if there was anything beyond. any peoples who were either too comfortable or constantly fighting each other. And people ask this question about how it happened.. it's a stupid one.. it happened. And it was no more accident. Nowadays most of us like to hide our European roots but you should be proud cause someone from a long long time ago thought about the world youd live in. And they were able to make your existence better.. conquest is part of life. And itll always be something the rest of the world couldn't ever grip like Europe.

Writing, fire, the wheel, metallurgy and civilization was not invented in Europe or by Europeans. However, many white nationalists act as if these were European inventions, made by Europeans, and are proof of inherent European superiority. Everything that historically made Europe strong in the past, which allowed them to dominate (large domesticated animals, language, trading networks, and diseases) has originated outside of Europe. By that fact alone, we can conclude that no, this is not because of any inherent genetic advantage or uniqueness of Europeans. To claim it was is to deny millions of years of back breaking work by Middle Eastern natives, in order to give credit to what were at the time people in the stone age (because yes, before metallurgy in the Middle East, Europeans did not have access to metal tools, and were therefore cavemen.) Only a few regions in the world have created civilization independent of another power. Europe is not one of them. South America is. It is at this point I must stress *this is NOT anti white.* This is not leftist bias or Jewish Bolshevik manipulation. This is not me belly aching about the past. This is *objective truth.* This is archeology and science, not politics. But a very good question to ask is, if bringing up objective history is "anti white," and mentioning the truth about the past is seen as slandering the white race, and giving credit to other racial and ethnic groups for historically contributing to the general health of humanity is in any way tarnishing the history of the white race, then is being an anti white wrong? If telling the truth is anti white, then conversely, lying about the world is pro white. Which side do you choose?

I read the book years ago , and found it to be enlightening , however Jared Diamond does not claim that all differences between nations ,regions, and civilization are explained by his hypothesis . He does not discount culture, including world view,and political institutions as contributing to the differences between nations and regions. He assumes neurobiological equivalence between all subpopulations of humans , and avoided , like the black plague , all evidence to the contrary , probably because it would distract from his thesis , and if he did present any conformational evidence , it would be misconstrued, and then used to label him a racist , an author unworthy of being heard, only ostracized . However, recent advances in the study of epi -genetics will soon force the acknowledgment that different climates, isolation, and mating with other hominoids may have selected for genes, or "turned on" genes in ancient Euroasian subpopulations which affected cognitive function in ways unique to those subpopulations , and that these unique cognitive changes may be absent or if present , not to the same degree , in those sub populations not subject to equivalent environmental influences.This explanation does not contradict Jared Diamond's , and in many ways dove tails nicely.

I'll ramble these points off in no particular order. Europe experienced aggressive eugenicism through warfare and constant conflict. Various parts of Africa has had resource for quite some time and still do but never made anything of it. Small conflicts consisted constantly removing consolidation of power - and throughout their history even people of desert regions as bad if not worse than Africans still achieved more. The Assyrians were far superior to the Nubians. Scandinavians/Nords had minuscule resources but have prevailed and survived and thrive. After Asia and Africa came into contact with an advanced society in Europe, only Asia learned from them- Africa did not. Native Americans also had resources but lacked technological innovation. Very few farmed, and they NEVER even had the wheel. And again, they did not learn from the Europeans. Cultures and genetics are not equal..... Genetic evolution in Africa, Asia, and Europe led to very different IQs. And in your image many of the (((wealthiest people))) are not European or American, but Jewish descendants of the Levant, dry arid lands........ The only point here I agree with is that Europeans benefited from constant warfare and establishing a hierarchy. I believe the genetic evolution of intelligent people is the reason for success. All races are not the same, nor is the culture each group produces, and if given the chance the superior genetics will reign. Africa did not learn from conflicts, they are a warlike strength/speed based culture and people, their genetics and cultures reflect this. Europeans having developed in harsh climates and heavy snow, had to develop not only their body but their minds to survive. A comment on society now...it is destroying itself in the West. The worst bastardization civilization ever brought the world was the ability to allow lesser peoples of a group to survive - as they rely and are propped up on civilization. Natural selection would have weeded them out long ago making the group better in the long run. Now as they continue to breed dysgenics is taking place in the West. These are my views, I shot this all off before going to bed so there may be mistakes somewhere, lol. Have a good day.

Paneuropäischer Nationalismus The Achaemenid military was not at the same level of technology as Macedonia. The Persians hadn't updated their military since Second Invasion of Greece. European empires conquered several Asian and African empires prior to the modern period just as the Islamic empires conquered Iberia, the Far Easterners conquered Eastern Europe, and the Turks conquered the Balkans. During the Medieval period, Asian and Middle Eastern empires were the most powerful and much of the world rivaled European civilizations.
Christian Nava (9 месяцев назад)
RunaroundStar IQ did not determine Western civilization's current dominance, because IQ was invented not too long ago. During the Islamic Golden Age it could be said that the average Middle Eastern had a higher IQ than the average European because half or most Europeans were serfs. Nobody is born with their IQ and IQ is determined by your education also IQ can be increased. If you raised a Sub Saharan in Western school they will most likely succeed. The fact of the matter is that Africa is plagued by dictators and has been at economic disadvantage since the 1700s. Developed countries are keeping Africa down.

There were nations and empire all over the world, the only reason Europe conquered the world was because of guns africa and Asia have always had bigger nations, empires and population so there economies were always larger(larger economies means larger military the absolute 100% of the time), thats why they did not invade Africa and Asia before the creation of guns(created in Asia but exploited Europe) when guns started to really change warfare normal armies could no longer compete Britain was destroying armies multiple times its size and going to war with empires with much larger economies With the gun and no longer the sword this created the white ego(master race, eugenics(lol guns), this insatiable need to “civilize” the world) This ego made them blind to the fact the empires they were invading and civilizing were larger then them and there trade networks were more diverse the only difference was there culture but STILL whites claim genetics superiority and they some how talk them selves into shit like that but before the 14th century (guns were invented, 15th century prejudice slavery enacted) but before the 14th century there was no way Britain was going to war with any African empire they had to many numbers and trade routes(allies) going through the continent, to Asia and the Caribbean America’s before 1492(multiple west African empires had trade routes going to the America’s for hundreds of years before Columbus)

Fake Name Jakov Spahija whether or not that has any validity is not the question. I am not talking about race "realism." That's a different discussion What he is implying by "we are all the same" in reference to the contrary is that Europeans are superior. And anyways, why the hell are they pushing IQ to be the main determinant? Last I checked, IQ level doesn't make a person any more resistant to disease (which killed over 90% of Amerindians.) Nor did an IQ around 90 stop Amerindians from creating the prosperous societies of the Mexica, Maya, Inca, Toltec, or Olmecs (which actually developed faster than many European societies had.) So saying that "muh European supremacy" is what caused the Americas to be taken by Europeans is an asinine statement. Disprove the fact that European disease killed around 90% of Amerindians, and then I'll say it was European skill, not pure baseless luck, which won the Americas. Until then, fuck off.

some dude if you watch the video, the fact that the Europeans had constant competition inside their own colony led them to be more technologically advanced. While the perfect biome theory may not make sense to you, it makes plenty sense to me, the main reason Asia, which was up there on perfect biome terrain, didn’t advance as far as the Europeans is because they were all united under one ruler, meaning there was no real need to advance. With the Europeans it was literally adapt or perish, as people were inventing revolutionary weapons and tools only to ensure their freedom from captivity. You could argue that Japan also is a perfect biome with the perfect forests, fertile land, and abundance of water, but it was an island too far away from China to really be competitive. Sure there was sea travel, but they didn’t have advanced enough ships to carry multiple people with them, and even if they did they would have to produce a multitude of them to even try and take over China, therefore they stayed in their simple life, advancing at the same pace as many other societies, except for their pottery which was revolutionary as they have the oldest dated pot used to carry things and it was even dated from hunter gatherer days, where pots were uncommon. I do think you have a lot of valid points, but what are the odds that your land will be able to harbor animals, who have germs like any living organism, and their germs mutate to effect humans. Being around them so much, they built up an immunity, but the only other places that had these animals were people in Asia and North Africa. That meant that those diseases would be monumentally terrible if released into a populous of people unexposed to the bacteria the Europeans naturally carried around with them. The chances of being able to unkowningly wipe out civilizations is almost monumentally small, as their competition was exactly passive. Sure the native Americans were primitve, but they still used weapons very common for their time period, so if they hadn’t had been exposed to small pox, syphiliss, pneumonia, and so on, they wouldn’t have been captured so easily. Again I do respect your statements, but I feel like the statistics almost indefinitely point to a “perfect biome” theory

Some dude I am an anthropologist it is not genes that make the difference it is environment. Diamond addresses as key environmental differences. Show me that genetic link. I am a grad student I can send you some articles if you like.

some dude whether he's Jewish or not isn't a relavent question. If one is going to dismiss an opinion because they believe the speaker has an agenda, then their own speech likely has an agenda. You say the best location theory is easy to disprovw, and say there are many counter examples, but you curiously did not name a counter example. Guns, Germs and Steel fully fleshes out the differences in human society, and he even recently added a section about modern issues. What counter example can you give?

Idk if hes jewish or not but his "guns germs and steel" arguement doesnt fully explain the differences and paterns we see. The iq differences are real and not in any serious achademic dispute amd they do make a difference to civilization. Had the north americans not been across an ocean from europe they would not have been able to hold out so long. The "best start location" theory is easy to disprove as there are many environments that are very similar but people developed civilization differently. Genes do make a difference, we can even link specific genes to why east asian and european civilizations differ in outlook despite both being highly civilized and high iq

Phuck Joogle if Jared Diamond even Jewish? Or is everyone who disagrees with you jewish?

Why are African countries still in complete shambles today, because of guns, germs, and steel? How did white people turn South Africa and Rhodesia into paradises relative to the rest of Africa? Keep denying biological differences.

Wilhelm Z read a few books like "the looting machine", Nile valley contributions to civilization, ancient future...you know real unbiased scholar books and find out...get out of the bubble mindset
