I enjoyed your article, but I have to disagree with the point about colonial expansion fueling the industrial revolution. I ask you to apply the logic of Adam Smith to trade between India and England. Wouldn’t both nations have been better off trading freely rather than England colonizing India? That is what you argue in the case if the Spanish and French.
