Why do you like history? by Julius Galih
Answer by Julius Galih:
VOC ( Dutch Indies Company) is notorious in Indonesian history for being a colonialist. The reason behind Indonesian nationalistic movement and unitary state was highly influenced by the very existence of VOC. But such information seems lack of angle for the greater circumstances.
I found that VOC was a corporation who wasn’t backed by kingdom interest, but more into profit seeking and funding, by merchant traders of Dutch. Quite system of vintage capitalism, because it was fueled by Amsterdam Stock Market, the predecessor of London Stock Market and Wallstreet of US. It was a magnificent innovation, and nobody told me about such history of capitalism.
So I was looking into the answer, but then I found the evolution of human social system. I read history to complete my personal question about continuous evolution, of humanity.
