    The Spanish conquered existing empires, and subjected the native people like feudal lords. A spanish elite was given a huge estate and so many indian serfs. The English and French took over lands that the spanish did not want. The tribes of north america did not make good serfs. For the english, the idea was property. Every englishman who came to carolina was given a 100 acres. The english expected to farm their own land at first. Because they were property owners, the english colonists developed democratic government. The spanish suppressed any movement toward democracy, and estates remained large. Democratic government was lacking in South America for the 19th and most of the 20th century’s.
