The 1609 CALAMITY, Founded The USA, Tempered By France

The 1609 Mental CALAMITY, Was Tempered By France’s Very Different Approach to Colonization and Human Rights. An Ongoing Project.

The biggest lie in the history of America is that the mentality of the founders and investors of the Jamestown colony of 1609, and that of their dependents, the Puritans of the Mayflower, was not a calamity for humanity. 1609 was genocidal and enslaving, with the goal of maximum profits, justifying the worst horrors… such as the formal introduction of slavery in 1619… All the while the 1609 mentality hid behind the Bible, its elected people mantra, its jealous, genocidal god, and its military solutions of ecological limitations. 

That 1609 mentality was not invented in America, but during the bloody conquest of Ireland by vicious plutocrats known as the West Country Men (their next project was America; one of those West Country Men, Sir Francis Drake, died in Panama, trying to grab land from the Spanish; his friends went on with Jamestown, helped by the English military and the investor in chief, King James of England). 

The 1609 mentality considered that non militarily-authorized relationships of English colons with the Natives was a capital crime punished most atrociously by drawing and quartering the English traitors, no less (the Natives noticed and deplored that the English refused to marry them). Along the same lines, the Puritans killed an entire English colony because the “rough fellows” there had married Native women. The 1609 mentality was a case of non-apartheid made into a capital crime.

Two French armies and one French fleet, helped by general Washington’s continental army, won the world war known as the US war of independence, 1775-1783… Ten percent of dead soldiers in the US war of independence were French. Here a representation of French headquarters at Yorktown, with general Washington in attendance. Cornered by the French, besieged by French miners, blocked by admiral D’Estaing, pounded by long ranger French guns, the British army was made to surrender at Yorktown, ending the war.

The ultra-exploitative mentality of 1609 was fortunately somewhat corrected by the French intervention in the American war of independence, which injected a more civilized approach to progress… La Fayette tried to persuade, for years, his good friend Washington to outlaw slavery. The French 1789 Human Rights Declaration gave equality, freedom, and the right to vote to all men. It made the American owners look avaricious, petty, and as the slave masters they were.

The gentler French approach was less oriented towards enabling a few individuals and corporations to make huge profits, and become the law of the land. Thus, for example, the French would trade with the Natives, rather than exterminate them. The French would pay for furs, not scalps. This is of course also why the French failed and the English won the Seven Years world war (1756-1763)… at least until 1776… when the French instigation to rebellion bore fruit in America.

The gentler French approach is bearing fruits to this day, and this is why the French help in creating America, and its more egalitarian and freedom loving orientation, is underemphasized by the contemporary ruling US plutocracy… which prefers to concentrate on exploitation, no holds barred, and with no benign hedonism in the way. As an anecdote, the more positive aspects of Critical Race Theory were invented in France, long before taking hold of US universities… France has also taken a very affirmative action against the greenhouse heating, with only one fifteenth (1/15) of the emissions of the US, thanks to carbon taxes, etc… And the French Republic has been at the forefront of taxing those tax havens… which make plutocrats that much wealthier and influential…

Thus, in a sense, the US war of independence against the plutocrats is still going on…

One Response to “The 1609 CALAMITY, Founded The USA, Tempered By France”

  1. Patrice Ayme Says:

    Very impressive scholarship: France is the redeeming value of the USA. The USA is an addendum to the history of France (maybe you said this in the past).

    As Gmax said, it may not incite too many academics to befriend you. Mais vous êtes une force qui va (Hernani, Victor Hugo, Acte III scene 2).
