Why Europe flourished so much? I'm not saying the rest of the world is worthless, but the European culture is easily the most sophisticated one(including the European offshoots like the US or Australia of course).

Appropriated greek culture. It's no coincidence that even the golden age of the arabs during the abbasid caliphate was due to researching greek texts. If it wasn't for greeks we'd still be living like monkeys today.

They abused their slaves and colonies.

i would say that most of all, it was the competition between many different countries in europe
i mean, wars and competition between powers are the driving force of technological progress. just look at all the shit that got invented during ww2 and during the cold war. most of chinas history is just long periods where one power had uncontested hegemony in a isolated territory (i mean to the east is the mountains and desert, in the north a tundra and in the south a jungle) and had long periods of stagnation, especially during the qing era which was crucial, since they were just sitting there doing nothing while europe was progressing faster than ever. as for india, i don't know. i guess they just suck. i mean before letting a handful of brits, a force that wouldn't have been enough to conquer even a minor country in europe, take over the entire place, they had like 20 cases where an army of horsemen savages would come from afghanistan and wreck the entire subcontinent

basically europe is the best because we had it rough but we came out of it stronger, while all the other """"civilizations"""" were just sitting around jerking off doing nothing for 3 thousand years
>>
Europeans claim the Americans are European offshoots, but only the good things :p
>>
Many books have been written on the subject.
>>90949384
We have good soil, many rivers, iron ore and coal. Many people argue having 4 seasons is why people started developing in the first place (doesnt explain eskimos though)
>>
>>90950109

people dont think about americans as a people in europe
just as a country that affects world politics

Of the ten greatest wars by kill count, the majority were Asians and related to China, you clearly have no notion of world history.
Even compared to India, Europe has had very few wars.
That's why it prospered, heavy natural defences that upheld stable, peaceful countries.

I suggest : reading a book, nigger.
>>
>>90950261
Europeans killed mostly to crack down the uprisings in their colonies
>>
>>90950261
>heavy natural defences
No natural resources
That's why slave labor in the colonies

Muh money
>>
>>90950636
Apart from the sino-japanese wars I don't see when i mentioned colonial related wars or killings. These are
>>
>>90950790
My point is that a former Roman colony called France abused its colonies in Africa till 60s of the last century

Algerian war? Pls fuck off
>>
>>90950261
if you look at your shit graph you will easily notice that the chinese started killing eachother a bit too late. by that time they were already too far behind to change anything. plus, it's not just about the death tolls, it's the competition
and china had none for 2k years. it would fragment from time to time but go back together quickly (relative to the timespan we're talking about) under a new hegemony and just go into stagnation again
you can be a retard all you want, but it's the INTERACTION between different, potentially hostile countries is what drives you to get off your ass and do something to get ahead. not some """natural defences""" that would magically """uphold stable, peaceful countries""" (whatever the fuck that means). we had plenty civilizations that would build their city in the middle of the jungle, away from everyone, and thing they're the center of the world or some shit and then get rekt in no time.
you know i'm right.

Once again with the retarded arguments.
So interaction between China, Mongolia, Japan and India don't count as interaction between countries ?
Chinese wars happened too late ? You don't even know about the 3 kingdoms war that killed 36 millions people ? You do realize this chart is about modern wars right ?
And you seem to be completely ignorant about the savage wars of the Incas, or of the Indians ?
If you don't even know the natural defences of France, England, Italy and Spain I can't help you.

Wars=bad, simple as.

Even thinking only about Europe, I get the impression that anything from before the 17th feels kind of "dated". Around that period literary works, music and everything started developing extremely fast and all around Europe, rather than just a few exceptional cities like Florence or Venice during the Renaissance.

But almost none are total wars, it's mostly just constant border skirmishes waged by the nobility using mercenaries.

The simple reason - Europe at one point avoided being wiped out.
All major civilizations had one issue. Fucking nomads/migrating tribes. It killed many Middle East cultures, it killed Old Greece, it killed Rome, it killed China many times, it killed Indians, it killed Arab civilization, it killed Eastern Europe (Rus), even in America civilizations were fucked by tribes coming from The Great Plain.

Western Europe hit the golden time: it avoided mongols. Mongols only harassed the edge and killed Rus only, which meant that euros had an upper hand against fucked up Muslims, Eastern Europe, Byzantium and future colonies later.

Yes?
18th century England built the modern world and 18th century england had population of 9 million, in 5000 BCE population of Britain was 5,000, 3000BCE 100,000, 1800BCE 300,000, 100BCE 1,500,000 its devel9pment is correlated with the population of Europeans.
