    Seeing as we were still committing atrocities post WW2, I guess we can't pass negative judgement on the Nazi's then?
    Using concentration camps against an innocent religious group killing millions is not on the same level as using detention camps against a group of people who were actively fighting against Britain in a conflict.

    The reason being? it's a shame as it's one of few parties I haven't graced with my presence yet, I think; I don't keep a log.
    We are a party who doesn't let dupes in. We check every member, and only once they pass a dupe test do they get in.

    We only had to look at you to know!

    Fair enough, maybe enough time has past that Superunknown and ThisIsn'TSpam will look more favourably upon my join request!
    You do realise that as soon as a Section Leader spots you, you'll just be banned again?

    Question: If I am such an obvious dupe how come I haven't been banished already by those whose job it is to banish dupes?
    Those who have to banish dupes are not superhuman, and have lives. They are obviously not online 24/7 Just wait!

    Yup. They're just a lot slower these, back in Democracy's day I'd be lucky with five minutes yet here I am coming up to an hour and a half.

    This suggests I may be okay to pop back a bit more frequently in future with less hasty repercussions, good to know.
    Luck of the draw. If miser or Jarred were around, it would probably be minutes as well.

    These were forced labour camps for anyone suspected of being a rebel, people were tortured, people were murdered. Some were even burned alive, paticularly relevant at the moment seeing as IS have just burned someone alive for fighting against them.

    We were of course also using concentration camps just 30-40 years before Hitler in the Boer War.

    The ends of creating an empire so large that it had the potential to be something greater than anything before or since. Imagine if we'd have kept large swathes of it. Imagine if we had unified with Australia and Canada as one democracy. Imagine if the US had never left. If we'd have kept control of Suez and Panama or taken the oil realm in Arabia.

    Don't focus on what it was, focus on what it could have been.
    Sorry but this just sounds like romantisied clap-trap. Are you as willing to overlook the atrocities of Russian colonialism during the USSR for the same reasons?

    Would it be rude of me to suggest you need a team meeting, this kind of wait is frankly unacceptable? How do you leave someone so unwelcome to your forum they were permabanned to merrily wonder round the site causing havoc like this?
    Wait, what exactly did you do?

    The USSR was not of British design. My reverence is to the west.

    So when the British commit despicable atrocities it's fine because we're British and therefore superior?

    The UUSR was a totalitarian state presiding over annexed territory. The British Empire was led by a largely market democracy. The potential for one empire to emulate it's leader is there, the other not.

    The British Empire was made up of conquered territory, we only got universal suffrage in 1928 so for most of its existance the empire was not democratic for those at home, especially considering all the rotten boroughs. For colonial subjects there was nothing at all that could be described as democracy. I can't see how this is anymore democratic than the Soviet Workers Councils or Soviet party elections.
