Every adversity brings with it the seeds of an equivalent benefit said te great teacher

Observe that the Great British Empire would have been wiped out during world war I and II if it was not for the adversity that befell the british armies when they lost the american colony....

Because it was this adversity after which the american colony truly established itself and grow to become a super power. Which liberated the British and most of Europe from hitlers armies.... and helped rebuild most od europe.
