Imperialism has been the most powerful force in world history. Carving up whole continents, while obliterating indigenous civilizations. "But our leaders care for the world" , is what we are told, as they push forth their agenda for plunder, tribute, glory and gold.
Empire is organised crime in the form of a nation in a way that it systematically accumulates capital through organized exploitation of labor and the penetration (domination) of overseas markets and relations.
The history of imperialism is a history of unspeakable atrocities, merciless oppression, mass slaughters, horrors and deceit.
Or must always ask:
Does this serve the need of the republic?
Or does this serve the greed of the few?
