They studied the integral part of the society, which brought to light the warring communities. They found out that there was no unity among the people, and the governance in these countries were weak, and divided. Cashing on these elements, the Dutch, Portuguese, French , and British, entered the lands as traders. gradually ,they created chasm ,and split the communities.

The natives had to find a way out of these divisive forces.

The Western influence is slowly taking the back bench, The attractive U. S. settlement is waning off. The East Asian Nations, Australia, and New Zealand have to rebalance their growth to face the new challenge.
