You can't say US empire. US isn't actually an empire because it has too many freaking factions inside of it. An Empire will be rule by 1 man or a group of people only. Just like French empire under Napoleon/King. Roman Empire under a group of people extremely loyal and had no gangs or cult influence within the Gov. US has too many internal cults/corporation/gang influence internally. That is why it is not a proper Empire. So US is off your list.

I'd choose the Chinese Empire because their kings/dynasty seems to reign the longest without eternal war. If Chinese ever go civil war again, I'd jump ship to British or run to Russians. Then again I was thinking About Indian one, but they seem to be constantly attack from the West and the Mongols in the east.

My own.
I'd die fighting to protect my original empire before bowing to one of the many criminal empire on this planet.

America IS an Empire, and I'd take that first. If not America, then the Roman Empire. It was actually quite tolerant. I'd prefer Vespasian if it weren't for that dick, Domitian who came shortly after, so I'd have to say in the time of Hadrian.

Definitely! Ideally in death so that I'd live forever in bliss with a permanent opioid high despite having no flesh or brain to experience it, but while alive to protect from the coronavirus. I'm sure this is getting some airtime recently:

Psalm 91:6-7


My Refuge and Fortress
…6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the calamity that destroys at noon. 7Though a thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, no harm will come near you.

If not one more day.

It is not called an empire but transcends every earthly realm and Infolurker has called it first, the ETERNAL kingdom of Christ.

That said on a more earthly level taken from KNOWN history - let's be fair there may have been one before the last ice age if some theory's and beliefs are taken into account but let's just stick to known history.

First the British Empire, it sucked to be working class, or in the first hundred or so years of it were you could be EXPORTED for looking at someone the wrong way BUT as empires over the past two thousand years go it was the best, the most human (And no empire is ever truly humane) and the most progressive that gave rise to the modern world.

Second the American Empire (I know it is not called that but) at one period in time, only that period the 1950's up to the start of the Vietnam war was a period of unprecedented prosperity and during that period America for the vast majority of it's people was perhaps the best place to live on earth with a ready supply of job's, decent wage to cost of living and decent home's for the people that worked, before that America as probably at it's best in the very early 1900's before the depression.

Thirdly while not called an empire the very early period of human civilization in the fertile crescent and ancient Egypt both had many things in there favour though they also had a great many other's against that so middle of the road ancient biblical Israel, Not an empire, not a place renowned for being peaceful but a place were humanitarianism, decency toward other's, valuing human life, ending human sacrifice made it more decent by far than many civilization that came and went over it.

Of worthy note the Hindu cultures are ignored mostly because I am western centric but I believe at least some of them were an equal to these in all the above values, humanitarianism, education and personal attainment, ancient India before the cast system or during time's when the cast system was over thrown may have also been worthy of mention, people love structure but the cast system is in every way a system of enslavement and even today it damn's people to live and work only in certain roles in even modern Indian society - except for this ancient India has it's many merit's.

But actually the modern world is perhaps better than all of these even if we find ourselves in an age of social decay, tradition's and beliefs being lost because of secular influence and political corruption, still our modern rulers in the west at least are a lot better than most of the ancient one's were.

BUT as Inforlurker point's out As a Christian I believe myself to already be a member of a kingdom greater than any empire - even if perhaps not a notable member - what is more a Kingdom that while it not a democracy is ruled by a flawless ruler that cares more than any democratically elected person ever did for those under them even to the point of making them king's in his own kingdom were the most true expression of freedom can be found, not freedom to do harm or be evil but freedom from sorrow, pain, despair, hopelessness, hunger and thirst and from slavery as well as freedom from the one enemy that no earthly kingdom can ever defeat death itself - you may 'choose' to sleep but will never truly be dead. - or to quote a passage from the bible.

And the One seated on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Then He said, “Write this down, for these words are faithful and true.” 6And He told me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give freely from the spring of the water of life. 7The one who overcomes will inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he will be My son.

Your understanding of the Principate is pretty skewed.
