These white servants were mostly poor Europeans who traded their freedom for passage to the American colonies.

About 40 percent lived long enough to see the end of their contract. With no resources and nowhere to go, many walked to regions where land could still be homesteaded, and settled in remote areas such as the Appalachian Mountains.I accept certain facets of evolutionary theory, but to be honest, most people barely even understand what it means anymore.
It has become an ‘accordion’ word that can be stretched out or squeezed in to claim as much or as little as is necessary. More recently, the theory has expanded to include vicarious and anticipated strains (Agnew, ) and a macro-level conception which suggests the ways in which communities may cause crime through the strain they produce (Agnew, ).
