In which John Green teaches you about European Imperialism in the 19th century. European powers started to create colonial empires way back in the 16th century, but businesses really took off in the 19th century, especially in Asia and Africa. During the 1800s, European powers carved out spheres of influence in China, India, and pretty much all of Africa. While all of the major (and some minor) powers in Europe participated in this new imperialism, England was by far the most dominant, once able to claim that the "sun never set on the British Empire." Also, they went to war for the right to continue to sell opium to the people of China. Twice. John will teach you how these empires managed to leverage the advances of the Industrial Revolution to build vast, wealth-generating empires. As it...
In 1492, when the Americas were discovered, a new era of European-based colonialism set fourth which eventually saw the continent control most of the World's surface by the 1920s, after which colonies gradually gained independence until the 1990s. This video covers that journey. -------------------------------------------------------------- Music: Glorious Morning Glorious Morning 2 (https://www.youtube.com/user/waterflame89)

In the late 19th century, Europe's imperial powers split up an entire continent and the ramifications can still be seen today. What if Europe never colonized Africa? What if the Scramble for Africa Never Happened? Here is one scenario.

Croatian philosopher Srecko Horvat is going on a journey across Europe, searching for the connections between the crises he believes are tearing the continent apart. Unemployment, debt and an influx of refugees are often pointed to as the causes of a European identity crisis. But, Horvat asks, could they in fact be the results of it? He travels from Idomeni in Greece, where in 2015 refugees fleeing war and poverty entered Europe, to the dockyards of the Greek port of Pireaus, where workers' unions say they are fighting a new kind of privatisation, and from Romania, where people are fighting to protect their forests from international investment firms, to the City of London. Along the way, he argues that the real cause of Europe's identity crisis stems from the trauma of it colonising i...
An excerpt from the film Uganda Rising showing in a (very!) brief overview the utter decimation of Africa that took place via colonialism and the so-called "Scramble For Africa." Despite the film's focus on Uganda, I think this excerpt sheds light on just how much of the violence that we see today actually has a colonial/European precedent rooted in exploitation and racism. It's also an instructive lead in, I think, to Darfur in 10 Minutes: An Overview of the Conflict in Sudan. Uganda Rising was produced by Alison Lawton. It was directed by Jesse James Miller and Pete McCormack (me). Jesse also edited the film, and I wrote it. For more about the film, visit www.ugandarising.com.
Colonial powers — traditionally European — have left lasting legacies in the countries they once controlled, and often, it’s not for the best. But while the majority of nations have to deal with colonial legacies in some respect, a select few managed to escape colonial rule altogether. The following non-European countries were never ruled by a European country for any significant period between the year 1400 and the present. These countries are currently operating as sovereign and independent states. Here are 10 countries that were never colonized. 3d Colonizaion Intro By CG-Bro's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKoB7XQJwlo Hitler's plan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EmrKVKvJjA&feature=youtu.be CHECK OUT THEIR VIDEOS!!

An excellent overview of colonialism from the European perspective based on European newsreels from the 1930s. The newsreels emphasize the colonial mission of bringing health care, education, and general "care" for the native populations around the world as part of their "burden" of "civilizing" the world's savages. (Sources: PBS Series The People's Century--Freedom Now 1947).

In which John Green teaches you about the (English) colonies in what is now the United States. He covers the first permanent English colony at Jamestown, Virginia, the various theocracies in Massachusetts, the feudal kingdom in Maryland, and even a bit about the spooky lost colony at Roanoke Island. What were the English doing in America, anyway? Lots of stuff. In Virginia, the colonists were largely there to make money. In Maryland, the idea was to create a a colony for Catholics who wanted to be serfs of the Lords Baltimore. In Massachusetts, the Pilgrims and Puritans came to America to find a place where they could freely persecute those who didn't share their beliefs. But there was a healthy profit motive in Massachusetts as well. Profits were thin at first, and so were the colonists. ...
