The Evil British Empire That Ruined The World

Any student of world history will tell you that if he had to pick a single nation to pin all the world's troubles on, Britain is far and away the obvious choice.

Stretching more than a millennium to the crowning of Alfred the Great in 871, the British Monarchy is simply one of the oldest continuous governmental bodies on earth. For centuries, its power over its citizens was nearly absolute. By the dawn of the 20th century, it controlled nearly one third of the globe. But while other totalitarian reigns have been put on trial and forced to make amends, the British crown has maintained its grip on power, and so avoided being called to account for its numerous crimes against humanity.

British Commonwealth is the British Empire controlling 30% of the people of the world, 25% of the world's countries including 53 countries and having the majority of the voting power in the UN (United Nations).

What exactly has Britain done that's so awful?

By our analysis, the crimes of Britain fall into four major categories:

1. Genocide. Modern Britain was founded through the systematic erasure of indigenous culture and language.

2. The Industrial Revolution. The health, safety, and wages of workers took a back seat to owners' greed for ever-higher output and profits.

3. Global Misrule. The terrorist threat has its roots in British mismanagement of the Middle East, particularly Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. Britain's imperialist past has so enraged Muslim extremists.

4. Bad Inventions. Slums, prisons, child labor, bad hygiene, the Black Plague, concentration camps, you name it.

Four examples of British imperial subjugation and complete disregard for the sanctity of native cultures:

1. British establishment, maintenance and profiteering from the African slave trade (both public and private)

2. British enslavement of the Chinese populace in the form of opium addiction. It was not until 1700 that the British introduced China to the process of mixing opium with tobacco so that it could be smoked.

3. British attempts at Britainization in Ireland following the 1801 Act of Union and subsequent persecution of Irish Catholics in favor of the Anglican Church.

4. The British used to tie up Indians from India to one end of the cannons and blow them up to smithereens.

You must be aware of how England raped and pillaged Wales during the Industrial Revolution, paying no mind to the welfare of the Welsh working class or the environment. As Englishman profited, the Welsh countryside became a wasteland of sweetshop factories and slag heaps.

"Have you been to England recently?". "All you hear about is how evil America is and how everything is our fault. I'm always shocked that people don't stop to think about how the world that we know today got this way in the first place. I mean, the Brits created the state of Iraq. Actions in history are like rocks thrown in a pond - there's a ripple effect." - Steven Grasse

Many of the world's ills can be chalked up to British imperialism in one way or another.

What the British Empire accomplished in places like India would make even Stalin squeemish.

But hey, Bush will accomodate the eurofag Blair anyday, and I hear the queen is coming to Canada again.

Roll out the red carpet for your masters....

These sick thoughts about a nation is not worth too much consideration, comment or energy.
The writer has the same separate thinking and low attitudes that he is criticising in others.
Similar nasty facts can be found about any Nation or group on the planet if we look for them.
We arrogantly divide ourselves into different countries
These are delusions. We are all Human Beings.
Human beings however often get sick and crazy.
This means we are jealous, greedy for power, angry,and full of fear and hatred against other people.
We therefore become aggressive in thought, speech and action.
So for example we call ourselves Empire (power)
So for example we adopt the aggressive and proud name of Warrior.
Maybe we could pray for this Canadian in our different ways across the world ?
MY PRAYER IS
Look after your health before you bust a blood vessel

And try this quote to calm the blood pressure and to see some reality..........
Quote of the day
We must discover a new respect for what transcends us; for the universe, for the earth, for nature, for life and for reality. Our respect for other people, for other nations, and for other cultures, can only grow from a humble respect for the cosmic order and from an awareness that we are a part of it, that we share in it and that nothing of what we do is lost, but rather becomes part of the eternal memory of Being, where it is judged.

The Mongol Empire died in what is known as Russia today.

Long live the Kieven rus.

And the stupid Brits are still screwing around in Russia with the spy rocks etc, lol.

The last vestiges of the "empire" are dying fast there. TNK/BP (British petroleum) just got raided by the FSB, again.

Unless the reimperialized Iraq gets up and running again the Brits will be pulling rickshaws for Chinese tourists because the tanks of their autos will be dry.

I like the monarchy. I do believe the richness and some of the pagentry could be toned down a bit.

You otherwise like them or you don't or they have nothing to do with your heritage.

I'm a proud Nfld'er, I'm proud of my english heritage and view some of those who wish to see the Queen removed are some of the same lot who want to tear down every other tradition in this country. It must be a dread every day hating everything from the word Christmas to the Lord's prayer, from the Queen to Canada's/America's friendship,etc etc etc....

There's plenty of other places in the world where these things don't exist, so why not move there?

Unfortunately, all empires throughout time have been as responsible for as many atrocities as they have advancements. The british have been no exception.In fact they are more responsible for the waywardness of the human race than any other recognized power throughout human history. This is predominately due to their greed, ignorance and power grabbing as well as their arrogance and flagrant disregard for their fellow man. I think all nations are guilty of this on some level and the british had greater longeivity of power so had a longer time to affect the world negatively. No nation is infallable but it is the nation that is unwilling to self reflect and atone for their actions and atriocities that will be more damaging to humanity on the whole. The british are truly one of the culprits here and are incapable of atonement. They use pure arrogance and a self righteous demeanour when dealing with their checkered past and therefore they should shoulder a lot of the blame for the havoc in the world today. As a humanist i could care a less if the british people and all their anglo saxon waspy bloodline disappeared from the history books and from the future of the world. From 85% of the globe to a small country nestled between scotland and wales?! the natural order of things has a funny way of restoring itself.

You people who are signing this petition and agree with the (lack of) morals that this disgusting idea holds are sick.
You look for a scapegoat some of you, others are greedy and ignorant and just want money, others by their nature just want to seek destruction, atonement? What can any of you possibly know about atonment? Read your words, do they not scare you for what you have become?
Sickness of the mind, sickness of the heart & soul. your words are of apocalypse.Reap what you sow.

I recognise what you're saying but I'd just like to double-check if some guy in the British Empire really sat down and invented the Black Plague (commonly known to most as the Black Death) or bad hygiene.

The British Empire was the largest ever. It covered 36.6 million square kilometers. The Mongol Empire was the 2nd largest empire.

Warrior,
OK, so what are the biggest problems in the world today?
Poverty, child abuse, slavery, the environment, war?
Yeah its all the British Empires fault! Britain controls China. The British empire invented slavery and drugs. Cambodian and Vietnamese children are sold as sex slaves because of the empire. I guess you think it would have been better if Germany won the war. Get real! Do some research. England has come a long way. Its now time for other countries to get their act together.
