In 1585, Ral eigh tried establishing a colony at Roanoke.� Although the natives of the North American east coast, particularly the southerly shores, had already suffered from numerous Spanish depredations and European-introduced epidemics, [97] the natives welcomed and fed the Roanoke pirate-colonists, who arrived via the Caribbean, where they plundered and traded with Spanish colonists.� The English pirate-colonists originally hunted for gold, and quickly wore out their native welcome, as they destroyed a town and burned its cornfields when a silver cup went missing.� The colony failed, with the survivors probably adopted into the native tribes. [98] Raleigh followed up the Roanoke failure with a fruitless quest for El Dorado in South America, in 1595.� He also sought to establish a beachhead to attack and seize Spain’s South American mines.� Raleigh spent 13 years in the Tower of London for alleged treason against James I, and was finally released to seek El Dorado again.� James I forbade Raleigh to harass the Spanish, who were at peace with England at that time, but Raleigh’s expedition attacked a Spanish outpost, his son died in the process, and Raleigh lost his head in 1618 to satisfy the Spanish Crown.� England's first per manent settlement in the New World was at Jamestown, founded in 1607.� By that time, Europeans had established their murderous intentions in that region, and Jamestown was a military outpost from the beginning, and no women accompanied the first landing.� As usual, the invaders sought gold, and their first task was building a fort in Pamunkey lands before the natives realized what was happening.� Due to European-introduced disease, those lands already had a small fraction of the human population that it possessed a century earlier.� It may have been no exaggeration when an elderly native told the English invaders in 1608 that he was the only surviving member of his family, going down his family tree for three generations. [99] � Jame stown's relationship between natives and invaders was largely hostile from the beginning.� Powhatan was the Pamunkey chief and his warriors attacked before the fort was finished.� The English strategy was intimidating the natives with their weaponry, which included a cannon.� Largely for self-serving reasons, Powhatan initially fed the starving invaders, and both sides played diplomatic games.� Powhatan’s younger brother, Opechancanough, captured John Smith, the most capable Jamestown leader, when Smith tried forming an alliance with a tribe independent of Powhatan.� Powhatan studied Smith and adopted him.� Powhatan probably thought that he was installing his adopted relative as the chief of his new, dependent, white-skinned tribe.� The English tried reversing the political situation by crowning Powhatan the next year, and make him a subject of King James by doing so.� Neither side probably fully appreciated what the other tried accomplishing with its political gestures.� The Eng lish then tried allying with Powhatan’s enemies, and Powhatan stopped feeding the invaders in 1608.� John Smith then raided neighboring villages and held people for ransom, including an infamous instance when he held a loaded gun against Opechancanough, as Smith extorted food.� In 1609, the English were starving, sick, and began spreading out along the shores in “self-sufficient” settlements.� In one expedition, Smith compelled the natives to “sell” an entire village, with its ripening cornfields, to the invaders.� War broke out, and Powhatan had his warriors encircle and starve out the Jamestown fort.�� The Englishmen resorted to cannibalism that winter, and many fled and took up residence with the natives, in the first recorded English instances of “going native” in the New World.

The USA enj oyed its Gilded Age at the same time.� Life for the white man was good, sitting atop the world.� By 1900, the world’s only place of significance not under white domination was Japan, and they were feverishly playing catch-up with the West .� Taking their lead from the USA, Japan created a Manifest Destiny-type ideology that focused on China and made their Chinese cousins into subhuman dogs, which was evident in the Rape of Nanking. [236] � The year after adding Hawaii to its larder, the USA waged a war against Spain, as Manifest Destiny cheerleader William Randolph Hearst gave an infamous message to his employee Frederick Remington, who was covering the non-events in Cuba, “You furnish the pictures.� I’ll furnish the war.”� Hearst’s yellow journalism won the day, and the USA stole Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines from Spain, as a former New World colony seized about the last shreds of Spain’s imperial lands.� Not far removed from how Spanish mercenaries treated the Incan emperor, President McKinley made demands of Spain as he rattled his saber, and even after Spain capitulated, meeting all American demands, McKinley still declared war on them.� The peoples of those lands that the USA seized became anything but free.� They merely had new imperial overlords.� The Philip pines’ case was particularly egregious.� The USA had designs on Caribbean islands for many years, and as they were in the USA's backyard, Americans could concoct some mildly plausible case for their conquest.� The Philippines, however, lay across the world’s largest ocean.� “Discovered” by Magellan in 1521, who died while fighting the natives there, the Philippines were conquered by Spain during the 1560s and Manila was established.� The Philippines peoples did not have the imperial culture of the Aztecs or Incas and there were no gold-plated civilizations to plunder.� Also, the Philippines were conquered later in the imperial game than the New World was.� The Spanish experience in the Philippines was kind of a cross between the mass conversions of Mexico and its hacienda economy, imposed on peoples more like Caribbean natives than Aztecs.� Priests, ranchers, and plantation owners dominated the Philippines during the colonial era, and the church was the Philippines’ largest landowner.� The Spanish never had a gentle colonial tenure anywhere, but at least the Philippine experience was not the vast genocide that marked their New World efforts.
