November 5, 2012

Apparently, 90 percent of the world’s nations have something in common: They were invaded by the Brits.

    Roads, hospitals, and laws, too… It stuck in a few places…

    Incorruptible administers, Free trade, low taxes, civil society, the rule of law, political restraint, local representation, abolition of slavery or chattel and other beastly things like that. How dare the British Raj prevent the practice of Suttee?

      Really? Oh My! How on earth did countries get by before the privilege of being invaded by limeys? And why on earth did all the people who were granted the privilege of becoming british subjects fight against the privilege? Were they all morons?

      If you think the brits were ‘incorruptible administers’ then you really should pull your head out of your arse and take a few breaths of fresh air to clear out your brain.

      I really would point you towards fact-based reviews of british empire and its real impact on the world, but I don’t think you are worth the trouble, nor that you would care.

    Yeah. Tell us again about how much better the Moghuls, Muslims, Nazis, or Communists would have dealt with M. Gandhi. Show us the example in History…

    The British weaknesses included a hereditary aristocracy and a belief that all men should be free. That “defect” allowed them to conquer India and China, and then set them free.

    Read about the Belgian Congo. The Germans and the Herero. The Japanese pretty much everywhere. Stalin and political dissidents. Robert Mugabe’s treatment of non-Shona folks in Zimbabwe. What do they do innMuslim countries to folks who try to change their religion?

    Yeah. Those British are pretty bad at world domination… Too soft…
