The French and Indian war altered the relationship between Britain and its American colonies in disparate ways. It first enabled Britain to be more proactive in economic and colonial political affairs through the imposition of regulations and tax levies, which were unfair to the colonies. As a result, the colonists changed their ideology being tolerant to resenting toward their colonizers. The war also created a war debt and prompted Britons to abandon their policy of salutary neglect and intensify control over colonial politics. All the tax levies and regulations enforced annoyed colonies, forcing them to revolt against Britain.
