Imagine a world where this was no so; imagine a world where every crisis did not result in new atrocities, where every newspaper is not full of war and violence. Because different groupings of humans developed different cultures, misunderstandings and disagreements over land became more common. In 18 59, the USA�s first commercial oil well was drilled, and its Civil War began in 1861 .� The southern rebels sank most of the Pacific whaling fleet during the war, and that, combined with the petroleum industry�s establishment, spelled the end of American whaling. �Railroads were the USA�s first big businesses, and in the 1860s the first transcontinental railroad was built .� The telegraph was an early use of electricity, and it proliferated with the railroads.� Telegraph lines ran alongside the rails as the USA expanded across the continent. �Those railroads were instrumental in the extinction of the passenger pigeon, the near-extinction of the bison, and the disappearance of the American frontier. �As with World War II, the USA�s Civil War stimulated its industrial production.� In 1830, the USA�s industrial production was a quarter of the UK�s, a third in 1860, two-thirds in 1880, and a third greater in 1900. [820] � On the eve of World War I, the USA�s industrial production was more than twice the UK�s, and the USA was far and away Earth�s greatest industrial power.� It grew even more dominant by 1929, and was virtually alone on the world stage in 1945. [821] The USA h as been a plutocracy since the very beginning.� George Washington was the USA�s richest man when he became president.� He was a slave-owning land baron whose armies that he commanded made him richer .� John Jay was the USA�s first Supreme Court Chief Justice, and strongly believed that those who owned the nation should govern it .� Po ssibly beginning with Zachary Taylor, assassinating American presidents became a sport, with Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Teddy Roosevelt, Kennedy, Ford, and Reagan and others subject to assassination attempts that were often successful, and presidential candidates Robert Kennedy and George Wallace were also subjected to assassination attempts.� Other political figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcom X, Fred Hampton, and John Lennon were assassinated, and they may well have all died in operations like those that killed the Kennedys and other attempts of that era. �Only the Lincoln assassination has been widely acknowledged to have been part of a conspiracy.� Every other time it was attributed to a �lone nut� assassin, if the weak conclusion given by the second official John Kennedy assassination investigation is ignored.� I h ave no doubt that John Kennedy�s death resulted from a conspiracy, and in 2013, for the first time ever, the Kennedy family publicly stated the truth: the Kennedy family never believed the �lone nut� theory regarding John�s murder, and Robert Kennedy considered the Warren Report to be a "shoddy piece of craftsmanship."� Robert Kennedy�s son made that public admission, and if the Kennedys never believed the official story for John�s murder, they certainly do not believe it for Robert�s murder.� The Kennedys have not revealed that opinion yet, but probably do not need to. [822] � Fear kept them silent for 50 years.� I consider it very possible that none of the prominent assassinations and attempts were the work of �lone nuts.� �The spooks were busy in 1960s and 1970s, and assassinating American political figures would have been a modest undertaking compared to the Phoenix Program and killing several million people in Southeast Asia .� Creating scapegoats to deflect attention from covert activities may have become a science in certain circles.

A great documentary about Ancient Egypt that confirms that it was the birthplace of modern civilization, more than 5000 years ago.
