As a Brit, I personaly support this release of information whole heartedly, and urge, nay implore everyone who has access to the files to read them in
full, and accept whatever truths are contained therein.
The Imperial history of my nation, is what I would describe as a sickening , cancerous growth on our national heritage. Some of my countrymen believe
that it is a terrible shame we ever let go of the colonies, of our empire. My personal feeling on this subject is that although it could be said (
with utter disregard for truth, honour, or reality) that we improved the world by passing on our way of life to other nations under the imperial yoke,
there is mounting evidence that the nations which we held under the iron palm we once gripped power with would have been better off retaining thier
wealth of minerals and of art and culture, without our interferance.
Imperial hunters killed off a sickening number of species for sport, our trade ministers presided over the ecconomic rape of over half the world,
and we passed the gun on to peoples who had far more honourable methods than we to dispatch thier enemies. At least those we passed the gun to had the
decency to get close enough to feel arterial spray, had honour enough to put effort into the death they dealt. Very often, they had better reasons to
kill than we did at the time as well. They lived off the land, many of the cultures we exposed to our imperial sickness had monumental talent for
architecture, for philosophy, thier motivations though different from ours, were more organic and ancient in thier origins than we could even
And we made slaves and corpses of the majority of the people we came across in the early years, rather than recognising thier right to exist thier
own way, and in the later years we were just beating the bones of the once beautiful civilisations we encountered, until the remainder we were
attempting to keep hold of , became so thin and threadbare that we lost our grip on them entirely.
Personaly I regard the colonial period as a horrific ghost of the Roman invasion of Britain. Rather than remembering with bitterness, with anger ,
the destruction of our ancient forebares way of life, rather than passing respect for every mans traditions, rather than just our own on to future
generations, those who began the Imperial machine instead passed on the worst traits of our heritage, rather than the best , to the rest of the world.
We allowed the abused to become the abuser, even after 1557 years, we couldnt keep our damage to ourselves.
Its about time that this information came out, and I hope that anyone who might have been involved, who remains alive at this time, dies knowing that
everyone knows what they have done, and what they have allowed to happen.
