What the hell is that a picture of in the background? That dont look like no europe I ever done seen.
@unknownjanitor, South-Western Japan, near Nagasaki and Hiroshima
@unknownjanitor, Japan. it's a screengrab from Bill Wurtz' video History of Japan. You should check it out.
@Spilled Milk, @Polarnik oh ok, ya Ive seen it. Thanks for the info guys!
Did anybody order some imperialism? With a side of opium?
*doors broken down*
*In charged Islam
That is, if you're looking outside of Europe
Because no other civilization in the history of ever has been imperialistic. Forget the miyans, the huns, world war 2 japan, the zulu nation. Nope just us whities.
@BlazingBowman, Imperialism isn't the same as colonization. Sure, those civilizations conquered huge areas, but not practically the entire globe.
@Polarnik, you're right imperialism isnt the same as colonization. But you dont appear to know what colonozation means apparently because that is exatly what these countries did. What all countries did expand and kill their neighbors for thousands of years.
@BlazingBowman, You were talking about Imperialism, and I'm talking about overseas colonization. The Mayans stayed near the Yucatan Peninsulea, the Huns merely took nearby land, the Zulus only came halfway to Cape, and the Japanese conquered some distant lands, sure, but they only 'colonized' Korea. This pic isn't talking about them, but about the Europeans literally colonizing 4 other continents, and also taking huge amounts of land in Asia (Levant, India, Indo-China etc.)
@Polarnik, Huns "merely" took land near them? They took land belonging to others and massacred many. Same is true with the arabs, ottomans, and mongols.
@BlazingBowman, No other civilization in the history of ever had been as imperialistic as the European nations that is correct. But obviously other countries have been to an extent, no need to “educate” people on what they already know.
@TR8R, 1. What a stupid fvcking metric for imperialism ooh these other empires only conquered people that were close to them so they dont count. Jesus christ the ottoman empire conqured atleast 3x as much land as brittain did but they dont count because they didnt happen to have a fleet of ships which to sail around the world in. Like dude get some perspective.
@BlazingBowman, wow guess I touched a nerve. Please cite where I said Britain btw. I was talking about all of Europe as a whole mate. So get some fùcking perspective yourself and relax a bit. If you’d like to discuss this like an adult I’d be glad to, if you’re going to spew nonsense and filth then go away.
@TR8R, im just saying your definition of an empire is highly specific so that only nations like britain and european nations count. But when you look at actrual history you come to see nations around the world doing the exact same crap but often acting much worse than brittain and europe did.
@TR8R, basically what you just said is the equivalent of me saying well the slave trade really only counts if you drag your slaves across land. If your taking slaves across the sea it doesnt count because water. So really the only slave trade thats existed in the last 500 years is muslim. This is the level of dialogue you have brought to the table.
@BlazingBowman, mate no I didn’t. I said that plenty of other nations have been imperialistic, just not to the extent of Europe. Land based empires count the exact same as naval based, but naval reliant empires can reach farther and faster by their very design
@BlazingBowman, I mean goodness, Britain had colonial control over India and China at one point. Not to mention the America’s, Africa, and countless islands around the world
@TR8R, and the mongolian empire extended from one side of asia all the way almost to the end of europe. And when you say americas they actrually did not have all that much land at the peak it went to the mississipi. You might say they had more land in total at their peak but it was by no means extremely more than other empires. Didnt the ottoman empire extend from france all the way to pakistan... or was that the persain.
@BlazingBowman, Mongolian empire still didn’t control as many countries as the Europeans did. It might have controlled a larger area, but that’s different. Also India and China might’ve had an equal area to what the Mongolia controlled, I’m not sure
"Where we droppin, boys?"
@Swolekage, everywhere that someone else it so we can take the land from them
