I'm British - we know a thing or two about how to build an empire, ravage indigenous populations, create concentration camps, steal national wealth
and generally abuse foreign nations & cultures etc.
However, due to increased enlightenment about a little thing called 'The Rights Of Man' (and woman) as well as increased opposition, we left all
that behind. We learnt from most of our mistakes. The best thing is, that process can be read about in magical things called BOOKS that 'newer'
countries can learn from. You know, READ & LEARN.
This fantastic phenomenon (LEARNING) allows people who come AFTER us in and beyond the 'Old World' to LEARN from our MISTAKES. You know, that means
NOT repeating them.
