Love freedom? Thank the British Empire!

What country did the most to:

Abolish slavery on a global scale?
Crush the ideologies of totalitarianism?
Spread liberal democracy across the world?
Spread the ideas of limited government and free markets?
Spread the ideas of certain inalienable rights?

Yeah. That's right. That would be the British Empire.

If You Live in Freedom, Thank the British Empire

Could be something to think about next time whatever anti-Semitism neo-fascist-communist-islamist rouge state or petty despots whines about "colonialism" or how evil white people and capitalism are responsible for his peoples misgivings.

I'd like to add that without the white man's knowledge of industry and medicines, the people supposedly oppressed by colonialism would probably be only a fraction of what they are today. If there is anything that requires a serious discussion in the west imho, it's conditioning foreign aid with population control. That's also one of my main disagreements with some Christians who refuse to view what's in the Bible in it's tribalistic context (ie. population control is of course a bad thing if the goal is to make the nation stronger - and the bible is all about that from a Jewish perspective). We also need to discuss how uncontrolled population growth in the third world is a threat to the ecosystem/animal welfare and its relationship to mass immigration to the supposedly "evil" people in the west.

Just to make one thing clear: I have a relative living in Northern Ireland and realize that the British haven't been 100% saintly either, all the time. This video also mentions and recognizes that, but complements that picture with an interesting fact about an idea the Celtic nations got from the English...

A rouge state? Is that after a woman has applied it to her face?
