"Had the British won the war through the Southern slaveowners, the seamless
integration between slavery and industrial manufacture would have lived
much longer than it did. "Shaping the world to ´its image and likeness´"
does not mean, for capitalism, to nurture and spawn new fully developed
capitalist countries, a move that can only be retarded by the natural
backwardness of the colored peoples. It simply means that the world must be
turned into the arena for the realization of capital, regardless of the
dominant productive relation, while it is ensured that a thick enough layer
of the human species is able to act as the active demand of goods (that is,
the -in this sense- privileged classes of the First World)."
Where does the phrase 'natural backwardness of the colored peoples" come from?
