Messsage from Huge Brain Oliver in Nick Fuentes Server #history-server

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:34:45  

American revolution was completely unjustified t b q h

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:35:19  

Britain almost bankrupted itself during the 7 years war getting the territory the colonists asked for

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:35:51  

and when the tax rate in the colony goes up (still far lower than that in England) to pay off this debt they sperg out and declare independence

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:36:11  

granted it all turned out great for the Americans in the end

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:36:24  

(they hold world hegemony, foremost power etc)

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:37:11  

but the entire revolution was unwarranted

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:37:56  


Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:38:38  


Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:39:11  

American revolution was to protect the liberties against the Westminster absoutism

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:39:25  

And the American identity

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:40:03  

Americans self-identified as Americans rather than British decades before the revolution

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:41:57  

that's a bit of a generalisation, many colonists saw themselves as english transplanted to the Americas

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:42:10  

sure some of them adopted a national identity when and after the revolution

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:42:12  


Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:42:29  

but a lot of them (for example the loyalists who moved to canada) considered themselves british first

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:42:47  

after the revolution, loyalists migrated (actually got kicked out) to Canada

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:42:53  


Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:43:03  

but that was after the revolution took place

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:43:08  

this is the conflict of identity

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:43:17  

talking about the initial reasons for it

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:43:25  

no way than actions of warfare can solve it

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:43:29  

it will happen sooner or later

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:43:50  

Americans will never be willing to vote for some representatives in Westminster

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:44:42  

none of those living in the colonies wanted direct rule, but they were willing to wait for devolved powers to be granted to them

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:45:04  

the Canadians, Australians and kiwis got dominion status sometime in the 30s

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:45:17  

they didn't use violence to try and take those powers

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:45:48  

fair enough, the Americans did

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:45:59  

i just don't think it was worth spilling the blood of their fellows over

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:46:11  

at first it is quite mild

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:46:23  

but all the time things suddenly got heated

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:46:29  

like explosion

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:46:42  

no one planned a revolution from the beginning

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:46:52  

but in the end, it had to be like this

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:47:07  

i'd agree with that

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:47:21  

the countries under britain's control only remained there for so long as britain had the power to keep them

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:47:40  

as soon as british power waned every colony was pushing for independence or more autonomy

Triple Hernan 2018-03-18 20:48:15  

it's the fault of the british government for losing the power and influence required to maintain the empire

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:48:42  

and another thing

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:49:00  

founding fathers may first identify as proud subjects of British crown

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:49:15  

but then they realize that the British tradition is corrupted

Huge Brain Oliver 2018-03-18 20:49:34  

so they decide to segregate from that
