C.), is one of the most important chapters in ancient African history. Complete lists of continents, countries, lakes, oceans, mountains etc. Europe’s mo ney revolution resulted from millions of Native American deaths, and brought no real wealth to Europe.� What the Spanish gold rush did, however, was change how Europeans viewed money and wealth.� In his classic study, Tzvetan Todorov illustrated how contemporary Spanish chroniclers attributed the motivation of Spaniards in the New World to sheer greed.� It was a new phenomenon.� Todorov wrote: “Certainly the desire for riches is nothing new, the passion for gold has nothing specifically modern about it.� What is new is the subordination of all values to this one.� The conquistador has not ceased to aspire to aristocratic values, to titles of nobility, to honors, and to esteem; but it has become quite clear to him that everything can be obtained by money, that money is not only the universal equivalent of all material values, but also the possibility of acquiring all spiritual values .� It is certainly advantageous, in Montezuma’s Mexico as in preconquest Spain, to be rich; but one cannot purchase status, or in any case not directly.� This homogenization of values by money is a new phenomenon and it heralds the modern mentality, egalitarian and economic.” [84] � Adam Smith noted in his Wealth of Nations that gold mining was perhaps the most counterproductive economic activity that any nation could engage in .� The only “wealth” that gold and silver had was what people bestowed on it.� It was only valuable because it was scarce and difficult to produce, and so became a form of currency.� Obtaining more of it would not grow one more crop, manufacture one more tool, or make society any wealthier, unless luxury goods such as gold plating and silverware counted.� In fact, such activities made society less wealthy, because so much activity was devoted to such a worthless pursuit.� Expendable natives were the only way that Spain’s 16th century gold rush could take place.� Gold rushes are merely counterfeiting operations and are in essence stealing from one’s neighbor.

Jackson became a war hero again when his defense of New Orleans trounced the British a couple of weeks after the War of 1812 had ended.� After beating Napoleon, the British came in a little too arrogant, and the militia-types slaughtered them as they marched across an open field, thinking that the “rabble” would scatter when seeing lines of marching soldiers coming at them.� The fragments of destroyed Muskogean tribes fled to Florida, amalgamating with the Apalachee remnants, and became the Seminole.� On his own initiative, Jackson attacked and took the British fort at Pensacola on the way to New Orleans.� He wanted Florida, and was dismayed that he did not get it after the Battle of New Orleans.� Not to be thwarted, Jackson invaded Florida in 1818, which was a Spanish possession at the time.� John Quincy Adams was James Monroe’s Secretary of State when Jackson invaded Florida.� Jackson had no authority to invade Florida as he had.� Jackson had committed an unprovoked act of war against Spain, which he prosecuted with exceptional brutality.� Jackson, like Underhill and others before him, cited Old Testament stories to justify his actions, imagining that he was some kind of avenger for Jehovah. [207] � A fter his stint as president ended, Jackson echoed Washington in comparing Indians to wolves, and in the great tradition of American presidents, he advocated the complete extermination of the Indians, especially the women and children, writing that to fail to do so was the equivalent of hunting a "wolf in the hamocks without knowing first where her den and whelps were." [208] Jackson’s invasion appeared less than godly, and more like a land-grabbing, bloody invasion of conquest, with the invasion’s leader getting rich from the stolen lands.� John Quincy Adams stood alone in the Monroe administration in defending Jackson’s invasion, and casted blame on the Spanish.� Adams performed a remarkable Orwellian somersault, calling Jackson’s invasion, “defensive acts of hostility.” [209] � All of the surviving ex-presidents approved of Adams’s gymnastics.� Adams became the sixth American president, followed by Jackson.� Adams was the primary architect of the Monroe Doctrine, and he became president in 1825.� Jackson handpicked his successor, Martin Van Buren, who was his Secretary of State and campaign advisor.

When the explorers discovered this fruit in the American tropics, they called them "pineapples" because they thought they looked very similar. The fertile soil of the valleys produces a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, including citrus, sugarcane, watermelons, bananas, yams, and beans. Progress on structural reforms has been uneven, and the economy still is vulnerable to external shocks. My therapist abandoned his professional role with me at times and confided that the events sickened him.� He told me that one of his clients was a young Navy SEAL, and one of the first Americans into Iraq for the short-lived "ground war."� The SEAL saw America's handiwork up close.� He saw many bodies of women and children, euphemistically termed "collateral damage" by the Pentagon and our national press.� The young man was having difficulty dealing with his experiences, and found nothing honorable about what we did there.� People like that never appear on Nightline, describing their experiences.� "National security" makes sure that cannot happen.� Instead, Henry Kissinger lies to the public in his tuxedo.
