Revolution for the hell of it?

Were or are the Canadians, the Aussies, or the New Zealanders worse off for not throwing out the Brits in a paroxysm of violence?

[Aside:

What was in Mel Gibson's head when he made The Patriot?

The same thing that was in his head when he made Braveheart?

The same anti-Brit streak that goes back to Gallipoli?

/Aside.]

The Brits ended slavery in all their colonies decades before our Civil War, without bloodshed, by the way.

They had a strong anti-slavery movement quite early.

Was it part of the motive of all those Virginians and other slaveholder US patriots who were so strong for independence that they feared the Brits would eventually free their slaves?

Hmm.
