          Weren’t a crapload of the French “Catholics” actually Huguenots who “converted” to Catholicism, so they could get a free passage to North America, so the actual French Catholics wouldn’t continue slaughtering them?

            Literally no Huguenot practices have survived the trip across the pond because there were so few actually taking to the sea rather than going to the Netherlands, so you tell me whether that's actually relevant or not.
            Calvinism and calvinist-adjacent sects might as well never have existed over here.

    Nobody had any desire to settle, colonies were viewed as essentially naval resupply bases

    1. The prot colonists were higher IQ
    2. The climate was more suited for settlement and the small holder agricultural model could be easily transplanted.

    The prot colonies, particularly New England, were family friendly environments with high IQ people. Whole families came over and replicated their already successful English social model. This would be in contrast to desperate, low IQ southron males living in the jungle, swamps, etc., surrounded by even lower IQ natives, trying to rape and beat the shit out of the natives so they would extract resources faster. I hope you can see that while I am over simplifying, this is what happened.

      Yeah because we can definitely talk about the IQs of people born centuries before IQ tests even existed, nothing bullshitty about that at all.

        IQ is 60-80% heritable, so we can extrapolate by ancestry.

          IQ testing for entire populations alive today is already pretty dodgy (please for the love of God don't just uncritically accept anything Richard Lynn et al shit out, his terrible methodology has been called out for donkey's years). Extrapolating that onto people who lived before IQ testing even existed in wildly different circumstances to modern people is just insane.

    Racism is usually the answer. Also the fundamentals were better, more prone to commercial and intellectual success and wholesome social values rather than plunder and conqvest. Most war was externally focused. This leads to a more boring but also more sturdy foundation overall, for a time.

    But then they projected their values on everyone with a kind of religious delusion. Saw the good in so many where there wasn't much, of any. So now they don't have much power left and their churches are getting bulldozed. Sad, but not my problem.

    Comparing Latin America to the USA, the Latin/Catholic states were recognizably "alive" well before the States were, and entered a stage of crippling change & decline while the US was just finishing growing.
    Communism hit the USA later than Freemasonry hit Latin America, for a direct comparison.
    The US was also just in a way better position to expand and take advantage of European politics, rather than being crammed in to a much smaller South/Central America with everyone else.

    The key reason is capitalism. Early capitalism was most pronounced in places like England and the Netherlands and became even more predominant and entrenched in the American colonies where the bourgeois and their attendant cultural values were extremely dominant from the very start and allowed for the unprecedented economic growth of North America. Meanwhile, the earlier Spanish colonies were dominated by an imported form of feudalism in the form of haciendas which lasted until the 20th century in much of Latin America.

    Any meme answers people give about race or whatever are just side effects of that difference.

    I'm going to give an actual answer: when the UK started to colonize, it had the perfect people group to do it: religious families willing to settle permanently. Within a British colony a colonist had to contend with:
    >1) Royal/court pressure, as British colonies were much closer to the UK than latin catholic ones to Portugal and Spain
    >2) Societal pressure, there were enough colonists to create small cities for themselves to settle with other families
    >3) Religious pressure as churches were a central pilar of their culture
    >4) Familial pressure as colonists usually came with their families

    On the other hand, latin colonies:
    >Were further away from Portugal and Spain
    >Individualistic, as there were fewer colonists willing to go and thus fewer cities were created, most of the colonists lived alone far from each other, as kings of their own private little castles where no one could touch them or tell them anything
    >No separate religious identity from their home country, their faith remained in Europe and was too far away for it to be a guiding force
    >No families, in latin countries almost all colonists were men that intended to work in the colonies for a while and then return to Europe, this created a "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" mentality as well as no incentive to develop much of anything as they didn't see that place as theirs

      This expands beyond the colonial period, even into the XX century. There are plenty of "brasileiros", people born poor in Portugal but went to Brazil to make a fortune, and returned wealthy men. Of course many would fail to get rich and returned just as poor or stayed in Brazil, but almost every town in Portugal has a picrel, a House or Palace of the Brazilian. So the mentality that the Americas aren't somewhere you go to settle, but a place to get rich and then return to your hometown extended beyond independence.

      This, IIRC the conquistadors more or less just wanted to get rich and go back to live as noblemen in Spain, can't imagine having your ruling class view your state as a get rich quick scheme before they frick off back home does any good for institutions.
