Thought of Today: July 14, 2018 at 08:40PM

Capitalism founded America not vice versa.

Settlements in America in 17th century were established by joint-stock companies such as the London Company, the Plymouth Company, the Dorchester Company, and the Massachusetts Company.

The Mississippi Company, chartered in France, colonized the lower Mississippi valley, establishing New Orleans.

The Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie (VOC) was chartered in 1602 by the Dutch hires mercenaries and colonized Indonesia for 200 years.

The Dutch West Indies Company (WIC) controlled trade through the Hudson’s and built settlement New Amsterdam in the river’s mouth which is lower Manhattan today. The wall they belt to protect the settlement from British and Native Indian attacks is what we know as Wall Street today.

British East India Company (BEIC) conquered India.

That’s why Napoleon used to make fun of the British Empire calling it (a bunch of shopkeepers).

Nationalization happened late in the game.

The world as we know it today was established and drawn mostly by unchecked corporate greed.
