Of course one could argue that the English need another massive emigration opportunity to remove the excess people who cannot be easily housed in the essential agrarian form the upper classes in England wish to keep England.
Interestingly there is a historian who blames the slave trade in America on the low birth rate in England in the 16th century leading to not enough workers in the USA. But, I would blame the rather greedy investors in Bristol that I think in some ways is still visible -- Colston statue and the aftermath points to that.
Of course now we use other methods to reduce the potential unwanted excess births -- I appreciate this is a controversial somewhat biased view, but this is a mature forum and the point is fitting AR into a modern context.
