    The non sequitur nation of African History

    in Radio

    The re-hashing of historical fact oftens conflicts with prevailing notions of rationality, science, or even common sense No where is irony more prevalent than discourse around African history Many scholars take the position the slave trade was a direct result of Western capitalism; thus justifying violent exuberance Recently, other scholars have refuted such claims exclaiming  the reverse is is more palpable In other words, more recent scholars reject the social conventions expressed adnauseam by their peers that capitalism served as catalyst for the U.S enslavement of Afrikan people.Thses scholars take the position slavery created the impetus for Western capitalism Amassing great wealth for themselves, Western leaders' motivations were inspired not by the pursuit of materialism but the pursuit of power of power which precludes capitalism ethics that is- the pursuit of wealth Clearly, wealth opportunity abound within the borders of Europe but Western excursions took place outside the boundaries of Europe. Copious amount of wealth needed to venture into foreign lands was not only risky but cost ineffective This begs the question: If capitalism is really about maximizing profits, what motivation would justify transgressions in a foreign land where the variables are unknown More importantly, any success would be fraught with danger and the human cost astronomical Is the motivation money or is there a deeper motivation? What do you think?
