While they starved, the British insisted on food exports from Ireland to England. Estimates vary, but the guess is that about a million starved to death. There is ample reason for the Irish to still hate the British...
    There is always a middle class.. In those days the middle class was people who could "easily" afford the daily breads and so and still have some money left for comforts, it was rather large actually in many European countries..

    I pity the people who say farmers are "poor" when farmers are the only group of todays society which is actually rich... I would love to be a farmer when the economy collapse, and hate to be just about anything else.. Hehe

    During the depression era here in the USA, the farmers had food, plenty of food, but little else. I wouldn't call that rich...

    Ah yes. The dreamer still convinced that the EU is destined to not dissapoint. Well gee.....

    - European colonialism that has destroyed the tribal harmony in the under developed world to this very day.

    - Two European instigated world wars that saw more devistation and blood shed in one century than in any other.

    - The greatest culprit of death in the 20th century was European Socialist Fascism and Russian and Chinese Communism.


    The worst of "it" appears to be clearly under a European prescription. Then America enters the world as "babysitter" to defend the free world from the Soviet Union. Being new to the game and with only Europe to learn from, a few mistakes are made. And considering our inexperience and the European mess we inherited, I would say that it is remarkable so few mistakes were made. After all, we didn't walk the world into a world war nor did we enter a nuclear war. Today we deal with a European model of international governance that chooses to massage "soveriegnty" to save Europeans (Bosnia), but spare no glance over towards blacks in Africa or Muslims in the Middle East.

    If you ask me (and I don't care if you do), America seems to be left holding the bag and trying to make sense of what Europe largely created. And it also seems to me that under our "watch" we have spared the world from anymore European civil wars gone global.

    So....you're welcome. ......And for Coca~Cola. You're welcome for Coca~Cola too. And our Hollywood. And our Music. By the way...isn't America the first Western country to have a black man as President? Once again, despite the critics, the nay sayers, and the jealous dregs who seek ways to celebrate our weaknesses and imperfections, America leads the way.

    By the way, Maximus, how is that EU unity holding up these days? Italy and Ireland still going it alone in regards to your economy crisis? And didn't Germany blast them for that only to turn around and announce that they too were going it alone? The tribes have spoken. And c'mon. Let's not pretend that Europe can protect itself either. Forty years of licking World War wounds amounted to a Europe that still needed America to execute most of the missions in Bosnia for you. And ten years after that NATO proves less than prepared to deal with Afghanistan without us doing the heavy lifting.

    But when all is said and done..America can simply pick up its toys and go home. You are stuck over there. Mired in your resentment and loss of power with an unpredictable future in store. A future where America doesn't have to help.

    And we thanked them by giving them a Boston Tea Party. And England sets apart from greater Europe not only by the English channel but by culture. Did you know that even De Gaul sought a future Europe without Britian? It's the English speaking world against the rest of Europe. Always has been. Britian is family. The rest are merely along for the ride.

    That's the spirit. You still have hundreds of years ago. There's that pat on the back.

    I'm not sure about that. A Dutch is closer to a Brit than to a Greek.

Aside from this there are 6 billion people to share the world resources now, compared with only 800 million in 1800... IN Europe the population has about doubled in that time and increased squalor, while the population in the US and the people sharing land and resources in North America have increased from 7 million at that time to 400 million now.. Increasing population is in my opinion a bad thing...

    I would love for the population in Europe to decrease like people predict from now until 2050, nothing would increase living standards more than that...?...?..
    I prefer the countryside as well. I like visiting big cities (yes, even European cities) but I could never live there. Ever been to Champere (SP?) Switzerland? Most beautiful place I've ever been.
