    “In short, Europe was in the right place, at the right time, with the right circumstantial history, and the right systems in place that when the Industrial Revolution happened, its hegemony was cemented.”

    This conclusion takes a very Jared Diamond-esque position that somehow European dominance was the result of luck and happenstance and completely removes the ambition, ability and all other human elements from the result. The Industrial Revolution didn’t just “happen”; Europe was responsible for it. And, much like Diamond, you fail to realize that homogeneity plays a larger role in a society’s success than does serendipity. One only needs to observe the creeping downfall of contemporary Europe due to the increase in external and incongruent cultural values and norms to grasp the importance of this variable.

      i agree one hundred percent. This PC garbage that Ethnic European people had absolutely no role in their own success is no surprise given the kind of propaganda we’ve been inundated with for the last decade.
