    Reading this is fairly interesting and raises a few questions. Is it bad or stupid to be proud of your country's history, that it was powerful and covered vast swathes of land and brought western ideas to other nations, even if it committed atrocities?

    Empire building is the history of the human race.
    Has there ever been a country that was in a position to build an empire dominate and control other countries that instead said "You know what? We've got enough land, wealth and resources let's no bother."
