Colonialism still happens, but the Nations are just pawns for the wealthy of those Nations. The only people who became “Pilgrims” were those who had the money and resources to be able to afford to leave. Same is true for the pioneers who came West during Manifest Destiny.

Those of you who are now saying, “So what, asshole, what the fuck do you suppose we should do about it!”, well, to you I say, “Stay tuned, and I’ll let you know what to do.”
