But the question was: what would happen if the living conditions could not be expanded accordingly?  Due to the prevailing division of wealth, the inheritances became smaller and smaller - the land became scarce. In this situation there seemed to be only one solution for many people: to expand into countries
wandering, where everything was much better. Apart from the vast expanses of east and southeast Asa, North America seemed to be the best suited for this.

However, it is no longer possible to make a clear decision as to why the emigrants left. (Graben by Konrad Dussel)
