Quelle suprise....another attempt at goading and belittling the UK and it's people from the smug and sanctimonious.
Human history is a continuing story of empire building from the moment we climbed out of the tree's and sought shelter in caves and mud huts.
Here is a list of some of the empires that have existed;
Notice how empires have existed on every continent at almost every stage of human development.
If we fast forward and look at the 'colonial' period you will see that almost every European nation had an empire.
If Britain hadn't built it's own empire it would have surely become a subjugated nation within another empire.
Don't make the mistake of using today's morals and standards and try to take a step back and think what would you have done at that time?
Whilst being the biggest empire of the time it wasn't by any means the worst; the Spanish, French and Belgians were far more brutal and were
responsible for far more atrocities.
But let's take a step back and look at some non-European empires.
How about The Aztecs.
They trampled their way across Central America destroying every tribe, culture and society that they came into contact with and practiced human
sacrifice on such a large scale that it disgusted the Spanish who themselves were very keen to enforce their Inquisition upon anyone and everyone.
The Mayans weren't much better.
Relatively speaking both were far more brutal, repressive and barbaric - yet you save your contempt for the British.
That leads me to think that you have some sort of ulterior motive in starting this thread.
The fact is that the British were the best at empire building at a time when literally everyone was trying to do so, and that has provoked a lot of
envy and jealousy.
The British were brutal at times, but when judged by the standards of the day they were actually considered quite liberal in their dealings with their
Your attempt at portraying current events etc in the UK as somehow karmic is actually quite comical.
I don't want to turn this into yet another USA / UK bitch fest, there are far too many of those and believe it or not I am far from being anti-US.
But if you are right in your belief in karma well I dread to think what the future has in store for the USA.
