What Accounts For Europe's Successful Domination Of The World?

Let me ask you something Ocatchings. Prior to Europeans arriving to America and establishing a "democratic" society, do you suppose the countries that you visited, including the continent of Africa, lived in complete turmoil and chaos while waiting for late arriving Europeans to crawl out their caves and show them how to organize and manage their high-civilizations properly? Also, explain how is it that at the same time Europeans began to emerge as a global superpower and amass substantial wealth that all other places on earth were dramatically reduced from highly developed and complex cultures and civilizations with thousand year old Kingdoms to "Third World," "underdeveloped," countries? How did that happen? Do you even care? Or do you just sit back and marvel in all the many ways that you can spend American dollars? Do you actually believe that America and Europe became the wealthiest places on the planet simply because of their so-called "free-for-all," "peace on earth," democratic society? If you're going to fight for something Ocatchings, the smart thing to do is learn all you can about what you're fighting for.
