I'm not sure that Europe learned its lesson, so much
as it stepped away from the mess it created when there
was no longer profit in it, and that the results
continue to come back to bite us. It's interesting to
look at colonial history, and ask: What should Europe
have done, during or afterwards, to make things better?
