    The theory of Enlightenment originated from 15th century Europe and it continued showing impacts till the early colonization in the 18th century America. In fact, the stemming of this doctrine was merely set to prove that European ideals of living in society were greater than any other part of the world—the intellectuals were subjected to be norm in the European premises where the ideologies were produced and they were then distributed to the rest of the world. However, the contrasting point in the theory of Enlightenment and the European promotion of the practice of slavery and colonization does not go in compatible mode i.e. it seems quite opposing from the surface that in spite of having perspectives of growth and development. European rulers still prefe
ed keeping the colonies and slavery as a major practice in the American premises.
    In response to their compatibility with the concept, Enlightenment was preached to satisfy the personal interest i.e. the Europeans were meant to produce the ideologies which the rest of the world would follow—at least it was expected till the expansion of colonies in North and South of America. However, it required a great deal of workforce to be deployed in the fields to make sure that the commercial profits are well earned. In order to fulfill these objectives, the standards were slightly modified by Europeans finding new opportunities in the American lands. They set the principles of thinking to themselves and left the hard work of the fields to the American slaves, applying dual parameters of their own ideologies and refuting the Enlightenment concept.
