Before 1765, America felt a feeling of reconciliation with Parliament. The two were civil, until an astounding shift occurred in the feelings of the colonists. Suddenly they were fighting to declare independence from Great Britain, so they began the long road of tension between the two colonies, and as a result war and bloodshed broke out in 1775(Docs2&7). Finally, in the spring of 1783 they seized full control of the 13 colonies, or as you could say, they “won” the American Revolution. The shift in America’s feelings towards the British during the time period of 1765-1776, the buildup to war, occurred for three main reasons: the imposition of unfair taxing on the Americans, the distance between the two colonies and the difference in governments made it hard to be unified, and truly because they felt they had been denied their rights as Englishmen.
One of the main reasons the colonists revolted against the British was in response to the Stamp Act and the Sugar Act. After many years of fighting, England badly needed revenues from their colonies, and they sought to acquire these revenues from the New World, thereby increasing their influence over the colonial governments. They created the acts to help dig them out of debt from the French & Indian War, which they had spent protecting America. The Stamp Act was a tax stamp which appeared on every newspaper, legal document, on every customs and shipping document, and on other documents such as tavern licenses and college diplomas.

The statement for Kaiulu DeMello Henry makes me come to a conclusion that, when an individual is in a land and cannot be familiar with the language of the place, then the individual can be said to be placelessness. The individual will definitely feel out of place and will not have a sense of belonging. In American Culture, most people have been incorporated and given a sense of belonging. This was through coming up with one common language that most people in the land would understand. Other beliefs were standardized to allow most people to be ale to cope up very fast in the land without discriminating any person. Kaiulu has vividly brought out the difference between the place and placelessness. This distinction makes the reader to understand where place applies and where placelessness applies interchangeably.
