One Reason many european countires colonizedother lands and peoples is because many european countries were running out of natural resources.
In europe by the 1500s and on, there was muchdeforestation and poverty, and the population wasbecoming too great for the land and government tohandle.
By colonizing the americas , for example english,french, portuguese and spanish colonists were ableto have new lands and opportunities, but in theprocess millions of native americans were killedenslaved intermarried, or forced to leave their land.
Indeed , the european colonization of the americaswas perhaps the bloodiest and most horrific time inthe human history.
Besides the genocide of native americans europeancolonists brought african slaves to the americans towork especially after finding out that nativeamericans would just die in slavery.
Imagine this men who youve never seen before cometo your house and your neighbors house and they allhave as much weapons as they can carry.
Then they start killing or enslaving you your familyand your neighbors.
And you and your family and your neighbors fightback but are crushed by the mens superior weapons.
And soon you and most of your family and yourneighbors are gone--killed enslaved intermarried orforced to live somewhere else.
This is what colonialism it is death it is slavery it isthe end of one group and the expansion of anothergroup.
