    [quote][b]the earliest victims of western European imperialism were other Europeans. Some eight hundred years ago, Ireland became the first colony of what later became the British Empire. Today a part of Ireland still remains under British occupation. Other early caucasian victims were the Eastern Europeans. The people Charlemagne worked to death in his mines in the early part of the ninth century were Slavs. So frequent and prolonged was the enslavement of eastern Europeans that "Slav" became synonymous with servitude. Indeed the word "slave" derives from "Slav." Eastern Europe was an early source of capital accumulation, having become wholly dependent on Western manufacturers by the seventeenth century.[/b][/quote]

    [quote][b]a central imperative to capitalism is expansion. Investors will not put their money into businesses unless they can extract more than they invest. Increased earnings only come with growth in the enterprise. The capitalist ceaselessly searches for ways of making more money in order to still make more money. [/b][/quote]

    [quote][b]historically U.S. capital interests have been less interested in acquiring more colonies than in acquiring more wealth, preferring to make off with the treasure of other nations, without bothering to own and administer the nations themselves. Under neoimperialism, the flag stays at home, while the dollar goes everywhere-- frequently assisted by the sword...[/b][/quote]
