Hello everyone. I found an interesting website that highlights some of Britain's worst historical crimes, so I thought I would make this thread to set the record straight on ATS. The facts seem pretty glaring: a huge portion of all the world's ills can be directly and indirectly traced back to Britain and England. Huge swaths of lands were devastated by British resource plundering and economic hegemony, and countless indigenous cultures were persecuted and outright exterminated.

Essentially, Ireland and Scotland were England's "testing grounds", so to speak. These two nations were the first targets of English military inequity, where they honed their efficiencies in the art of brutal occupation. As most of you know, the Gaelic and Welsh languages are essentially dead, or soon to be, and this all traces back to age-old English policies of subjugation and extermination. After these conquests, the British went on to subjugate a good portion of the world using the skills they learned while killing the Irish by the thousands and millions.

As many people know, the Irish famine was genocide perpetrated by British authorities. Having gotten the Irish solely reliant on a single type of crop, after the potato famine set in the British deliberately withheld aid to the Irish in order to curb their population growth (which they considered a potential threat). We know this because the famine also occurred in parts of Britain, and the victims were duely aided and fed by the British authorities. The difference with Ireland was that they were considered subhumans, and so they were allowed to starve. The entire thing could have been averted, but genocide was the preferred policy of Britain. Better safe than sorry, right?

So, after fine-tuning and training their murderous skillset on the Irish, the British went on to apply these same policies to their imperial holdings throughout the world.

Despite all this, Britain has instilled their population with ideas of the benevolence and gloriousness of the British empire. Most right-thinking people recognize this as propaganda and outright falsehood, but they've still managed to convince much of the world that their crimes are somehow justifiable. While the world focuses on Russia, China, and the United States and it's failings, so many fail to recognize that much of the world's problems are directly traceable to British policies. They were the ones who carved up the Middle-East (after breaking up the Ottoman Empire) and helped create perpetual discord in the region. They were the ones who looted and maimed India during their two-century suzerainty, contributing greatly to India's current failings. They were the ones nearly succeeded in hooking the entire Chinese population on Opium. They were the ones who first began prosecuting the genocide and extermination of Australian Aboriginals and Native Americans.

The British themselves were not even particularly good warriors- their most deadly soldiers were colonial troops like Gurkhas and Sikhs, who did most of the heavy lifting. Before that, they relied on Irish and Scottish regiments to hold the front lines and soak up causalities.

The British Empire was an ugly thing. It seems many Brits on this website and elsewhere believe otherwise, so I think we were all due for a proper reminder. If you are not keen on the way the modern world in running, thank the British.

I will quote from the website in the next post.

"Why Britain? Aren't there plenty of other countries that we could blame for the world's problems?"
Sure, Britain isn't behind all of the world's problems—at least not directly. The old Soviet Union, for example, is estimated to be responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of its own citizens, to say nothing of the havoc its aggressive foreign policy wreaked abroad. But most of these deaths happened by way of prison camps (a British invention) or machine guns (another British invention). All roads of human suffering, particularly in the 20th century, lead back to Britain.

Stretching more than a millennium to the crowning of Alfred the Great in 871, the British Monarchy is simply one of the oldest continuous governmental bodies on earth. For centuries, its power over its citizens was nearly absolute. By the dawn of the 20th century, it controlled nearly one third of the globe. But while other totalitarian reigns have been put on trial and forced to make amends, the British crown has maintained its grip on power, and so avoided being called to account for its numerous crimes against humanity.
"What exactly has Britain done that's so awful?"
Where to begin? By our analysis, the crimes of Britain fall into four major categories:

Genocide. Modern Britain was founded through the systematic erasure of indigenous culture and language. The English rounded up natives, seized their property, and forced them to relinquish their heritage and take on British language and culture as their own. Anyone who dissented faced extermination. This practice began in Scotland, Wales and Ireland and soon spread all over the world, where the British Empire plundered natural resources and enslaved native peoples then left without building the stable infrastructure or governments necessary for self-sufficiency.


www.britishreparations.org...

I particularly find this part interesting:


Strangely enough, Britain has been very aggressive about making other countries pay for their historical misdeeds. Like a herd of raging soccer hooligans looting their rival's capital after a victory, they've extracted exorbitant reparations payments from Germany, France, and China, among others. Now it's their turn to pay.

Britain has long controlled our patterns of thought through the modern university, an English invention. They control what we say through their hold over English, the global master language. More recently, they've bought the minds of some of our best and brightest—including numerous top U.S. politicians and public thinkers—through the Rhodes Scholarship, thus insuring that the false innocents of Britain's public image never has to face scrutiny.


How is it that the UK has successfully deceived the world for so long into thinking their hands are clean? While everyone points the finger at Russia, the U.S., Germany, China etc., Britain gets off scot-free. Are they simply highly skilled propagandists and liars? Is it because of the Royal Families influence with the NWO? All very interesting and confusing questions that need to be answered.

I'm British(English,actually)but I don't recall doing any of these things.

Surely it would be fair to to say that all government leaders have the same aim in mind,i.e. filling their own bank accounts,regardless of the cost to others?

That is terribly one sided.

As an example, it was the Allied powers that carved up the world post WW1 and WW2.

You seem to forget what other nations did in the same time frame. The Spanish destroyed South America, France butchered Indochina and the list goes on.

Every Empire raises itself from obscurity by warfare, genocide and mayhem.

England just took a turn at empire. Right now, the US is having a go. When they crumble as all Empires do, someone else will give it a go.

Benjamin Disraeli said: "governments do not govern..."

TPTB control ALL nations.

They hide behind the façade of fake governments while using the media to propagate the mythical illusion of "choice".

"East" vs "West" is just a distraction to keep people thinking that there really is a free world.


We need to see current events in a new way. The conflict is NOT between countries or religions or "civilizations." The conflict is between the people and most of our "leaders" -- government, media, religion, education and business -- who owe their position to this extremely powerful and evil cult. They are traitors.

Does a Satanic Cult Rule the World?

The UK is a messed up society, we have our messed up masters to thank for that, I love my country for although I live a simple life I have all I need thanks to the United Kingdom I could have been born in a worse place, but I have no love for the people in charge, we are ruled by psychopaths, the hidden hands use psychopaths because it's easier for them to do the deeds required, my dad always says "you can only bury your head in the sand for so long son", they are winning, make no mistake about that, too much power but history is history to me, I live in the now, whatever happened in the past is the past, and I'm sure at that time and place it was necessary to do what was done, it's easy to point the finger after all.

Someone has the answers but he/she is not telling. I want the answers for the now

...really? Why should the British empire, US "government" or any other empowered entity be spared the wrath of karma or the hammer of justice? Do not all of us get what we deserve, some of us perhaps even more than our lot? There are certain things that cannot be forgive by man, such as the deceptive history regarding the British empire referenced in this article, as they are horrendous conspired ignorant acts not only against themselves, but also their children, our entire species and beyond. Tell me who is able to forgive such atrocities. As we all pay our due justice for our own injustice, how could this same principle evade the very perpetrators of evil and inspirers of injustice?

These evildoers must pay for their wrongdoing, just like the rest of us, even those that think they are above it all are not exempt.

I'm English and I would tend to agree with you. We are a brutally empirical nation. I am of the belief that we are still at it, puppeting the theatrics of the US and Israel. All roads seem to lead to The City of London.

I think you mean imperial.

Though, I think, the British can be as empirical as anyone else.

Oh Lordy. Another anti-English/British revisionist resource. Oh look, someone's trying to sell a book too!

You have to look at the context of the time. The British Empire was probably better than all the other Empires of the time - Spanish, Portuguese, French - even Russian.

I'm constantly looking into humanity's historical record to find more groups of people to hate, so thanks for your insight. I believe most of my ancestors were British; so I'm definitely feeling a whole lot of shame right now if that makes you feel a little bit better. Unforgiven.

Where are you from OP?.
Every country has dark times in their past. The more successful as a nation the darker it has to be to get there.
Lets face it not many places as successful as the UK is there?.

You seem to omit that the English had terrible conditions due to the land owners - many Normans.

I don't apologise for the past because it didn't involve me and neither have I ever supported the royalty here. If you want to look for greed within Britain of the past look at the people at the top, not the slaves at the bottom.

Also much of what happened was deliberately kept out of our schooling so most are totally ignorant of the british elite's past. In fact it was an eye opener to me when I worked abroad as to how people thought about us still.

I don't condone what our royalty decreed, I don't condone their being able to carry on in the way they do today - sure they run pretty little charities but only with a minuscule of their own personal wealth's contribution.

I won't apologise for the past because that's worthless and useless. But I hope you will remember that an awful lot of our tax money and money is continually generously given for various causes and aid to other deserving countries. This comes from the average English household. Many English, my young cousin works for a charity in Africa, when with his qualifications he could be a top exec with lifestyle to match. We aren't all greedy or useless. Most don't agree with our government's/royalties ambitions either.

You also need to look at who manipulates our royals and has done for some considerable time - rothschild - I hope you research the backgrounds of the money lenders who are very involved with this history and remember that whilst they sit on their backsides safely behind a desk and enjoy living in castles here, it was boys and men from the average British family who were forced to fight for them, not their own kids.

So please tell me who it is exactly who "cannot be forgiven"

They are all dead man. Seriously, who are you going to hold responsible, the general British public??? The west as a whole???

White people??


It's a f*ckin joke really. I am about 50% Scottish blood, and I honestly don't give a crap about it all anymore. I am very well versed in the history, and while it's atrocious, again THEY ARE ALL DEAD!!

I have visited England many times, and I love the great people and culture there.

What so many people fail to consider when they get out their guilt-trip songbook and start aiming at pretty much any European culture or peoples, is this:

EUROPE AND THE BRITISH IN PARTICULAR HAVE CONTRIBUTED MORE TO THE MODERN WORLD THAN ANYONE SAVE FOR MAYBE THE CHINESE COULD EVER HOPE TO!!!!!!

So to the OP, maybe consider the enormous contribution the Brits and Europe have made toward the world before crying up another sob story about a bunch of dead assholes who can't hurt anyone anymore. It is because of the foundations laid and opportunities afforded by these great empires, that there is almost zero excuse for an individuals personal failure while living in Western Europe these days!
