Andrew Johnson and Congress had numerous disagreements throughout his presidency. Lord Lugard (1922) introduced another element in proposing that the colonial powers were under a dual mandate obligating them to secure the advancement of their dependent territories and to develop them in the interest of the world at large. Many of the reforms that agrarian protesters endorsed were eventually enacted in the Progressive Era. The former employed, in 1820, about twenty hands, and two hundred and eighty-eight spindles, and consumed eighteen thousand pounds of cotton.

The USA's govern ment and mainstream media endlessly justified the bombing of Yugoslavia as a "humanitarian intervention."� Even so-called "left" media sources stated the same thing. [332] � America’s bombs somehow saved Albanians, even as they killed Albanians.� NATO's bombs directly killed about 300 Albanians, whom they were supposedly saving.� In only three previous instances in the 20th century had a large power invaded another nation for "humanitarian" reasons, and America and Bill Clinton made the fourth.� The other three were Hitler's invasion of Czechoslovakia, Mussolini's invasion of Ethiopia, and Japan's invasion of Manchuria. [333] � In those three earlier instances, the invading imperial powers invoked lofty rationales for their invasions, and their rhetoric accurately cited problems and abuses in the regions they invaded.� Such rationales could be concocted for any place on Earth.� The Big Lie regarding each rationale was that their motivation was helping the nations they invaded.� In each case, they invaded for murderously self-serving reasons.� One thing is certain: the application of violence, if justified (which I have not found a clear instance of yet, and doubt I ever will), should be the result of lengthy deliberations by those who authorize such actions.� As with all of our violent interventions, the American public (who ultimately authorized the violence) knew virtually nothing about what was happening as they cheered the violence.� Not one in ten Americans could pick out Yugoslavia on a geophysical map (one with no national boundaries or names) of the world.� In a 2002 global geographic literacy survey by National Geographic, more than ten percent of American adults between the ages of 18 and 24 could not even identify the USA, and 87% could not identify Iraq.� Thirty percent could not even identify the Pacific Ocean.� Americans cheer the bombs without really knowing where they fall.� With all the self-congratulation about what a humanitarian nation America is, and how we saved the Albanians, a little investigation into our humanitarian record is warranted.

These, however, were disposed of frequently by distraint, as the sole means of providing the rent for the landlord, while the unfortunate tenants by whose labour they had been produced were left without food. Another difference is clearly noted in the human resources. In the 19th century, energized by the industrial revolution and under pressure from a rapidly growing population, Europe launched a new period of colonial expansion, inspired by the discovery of new markets, new areas for the settlement of Europe’s poor migrants, and the desire to " civilize the barbarian nations ".
