#empire

From the 14th through the early 20th century, the Middle East consisted of a hybrid civilization composed of various tribes and peoples stretching from the Balkans down through the Arabian Peninsula under the auspices of the Ottoman Empire. To its promoters, Constantinople administered a multicultural society that balanced ethnic and religious differences into a harmonious whole. To its detractors, the Ottoman regime was a decadent, degenerate ruling class that lived above the poverty of its servants and relied upon an endless supply of slaves to feed its military and royal harems. In the end, economic and political weakness led to the empire’s unraveling, as nationalism in the wake of the first world war broke the back of the empire and led it to the carve up into the modern Turkish state and the surrounding nations.

Professor Inderjeet Parmar discusses U.S. Empire and how America is on the brink of a serious abyss, though it still remains very powerful. On one level there is a resurgent triumphalism in the West, and on another there are a deep series of crises both in Washington and of the globalized order. We see a rise of the Global South and "in-system powers"which are not part of the West. He discusses the consensus building project of the core elites and knowledge network or "empire of the mind," the U.S.-China relationship, how U.S. Empire has viewed China as a great asset to the Western world since the 1950s and how Beijing has emerged as a major power under the auspices of the West. Ruling classes of different countries get together as cartels due to shared interests. Multipolarity is messy but has had a democratizing effect.

Video wasn't playing so fixed that.

I discuss how America becoming the sole world empire might have ended the era of the State and brought us back to the cycle of empire and feudalism that was the norm for most of human history. Also was China's one child policy a ploy to allow only the best men to carry on their genes?

TARTARIA - Tartarian Empire, erased from the history books less than 130 years ago. History, its not your story.. It's His.. Story.

1 month, 3 weeks ago

Perhaps the most explosive insider historical account of significance ever written, Procopius' "The Secret History" claims to voice the untold story of the latter stages of Eastern Rome and it's swift degeneration, specifically under Justinian and Theodora.

This respected scholar and historian was no enemy of the Emperor and Empress - at least at the outset - and in fact was chosen by them to be the leading Byzantine court historian. He subsequently became the man responsible for documenting the Gothic wars, spearheaded by Eastern Rome's most famous and capable general of the day, Belisarius.

So explosive was the work, and so extreme were certain claims, that the entire work has been largely ignored - a serious mistake and injustice, in my view.

This video is a tribute to Procopius, his work, and all similar important histories quietly shuffled away or proactively hidden. One can't help but notice countless parallels with the collapse of Rome and our own degenerate, prideful, ignorant and forgetful age, and important related lessons.. let's not turn our heads.

Centralization of power, standing armies, an elected king - would lead to a mighty empire, rather than a land of liberty. That’s what Patrick Henry warned about in his 2nd speech during the Virginia Ratifying Convention - June 5, 1788.

EXPIRATION!!!

2 months, 2 weeks ago

To the tune of Jim Croce’s “Bad, Bad LeRoy Brown”

At the first part of the cent’ry
He sat atop the world
Wherever you’d go
You all had to know
That his big flag was unfurled.

Oh Sam was more than trouble
He’d shown those Reds the door
The Warsaw Pact had had enough
And it wasn’t coming back for more.

Well it’s bad, bad Uncle Sam,
He do what he want and the world be damned;
Badder than Genghis Khan,
But still afraid of Kim Jong-un.

Now Uncle Sam, he a bully,
And he loves those weaker foes,
And he like to wave his defense budget
Under everybody’s nose.

He got a really funny worldview;
He got a Federal Reserve, too;
He got a House and Senate in his pocket for fun;
He got a menorah in his shoe.

And it’s bad, bad Uncle Sam,
He do what he want and the world be damned;
Badder than Genghis Khan,
But still afraid of Kim Jong-un.

September fifteen years ago
Sam claimed we were attacked.
Though nothing made sense
He got us all worked up
And his war plans most folks backed.

Then he cast his eyes toward Kabul
And the trouble soon began,
‘Cause Sam he learned no lesson
‘Bout messin’ ‘round without a plan.

Well it’s bad, bad Uncle Sam,
He do what he want and the world be damned;
Badder than Genghis Khan,
But still afraid of Kim Jong-un.

Now the locals took to fightin’
And a man found on his own
Our future looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone.

And it’s bad, bad Uncle Sam,
He do what he want and the world be damned;
Badder than Genghis Khan,
But still afraid of Kim Jong-un.

And he’s bad, bad Uncle Sam,
He do what he want and the world be damned;
Badder than Genghis Khan,
But he’s still afraid of Kim Jong-un.

Yes, he’s badder than Genghis Khan,
But he’s still afraid of Kim Jong-un.

the given information is not totally correct concerning the way out of the catholic and Freemason mess. it had been the Duty of the Kaiser to overhand the Reich by establishing a Manager who would be responsible to find a new Kaiser or President of the Reich. As he did not do that the people could act as they did by confirming Hitler as Manager of the Reich, the whole Reich and especially as there was war. As being told here WWI never ended nor WWII. They, the Elohim, are all playing Games of Thrones.

Currently it is the Vatican having contracts with the "Bundesländer" (counties, a creation -apparently- by the Allies which did not exist in the Kaiserreich and which are based on Admiral law and Canon law. This was, I guess, the reason why Benedict got cancelled as Pope. He were probably not ready to kill off Germans with lots of Migrants from the whole world, nor the entire world population by the Lockdown. The German Empire was built as an Alliance of different ordinary Staates, mainly inhabited by different German tribes and spoken dialects: although everyone could -after the creation of the German Reich- move from one State to another, if there accepted. The Weimarer Republic went on with the States of the former Alliance but organized as companies. This Republic ruined our people and brought many into suicide or straight away into death by hunger. This then gave rise to the National Socialist Movement in contrast to the communists who were bringing havoc on all levels and literally allowed that the people were robbed of their property and incomes. They also brought in the sexual Ballaballa what we see again now but this time worldwide. So finally the NSDAP got established by Election by overwhelming votes for the Hitler regime. Hitler then went to the Kaiser who was sitting in the Netherland and asked him to overhand the Empire, what the Kaiser refused. He wanted to be called back into the Reich- so it is at least told. This did not happen. So Hitler established the Dictatorship and thereby cancelled the former States of the Reich and also the Status of the people. Before they had have 2 Nationalities- of the home State and where also recognized as Germans. Now they lost their Status as "Bayer", "Hamburger", "Berliner" or "Sachse" and so fort. So, as we all know, Hitler had been a Fan of the Romans, so we got back to Rome and lost our lives again. You know that Rome treats all people on the Earth -except the chosen ones- as dead but organic things with who the entire shareholders of that system make business like with cows. There are no human rights other than as given privileges by Rom and those can be taken as well. The Americans had been taken back into the Reich of God`s deputies and the Germans as well. The rest of the World was in it anyway. This whole concept is Jewish (Thora) and also known as "Die Geschäftswerdung der Welt" (the Business of the World), as set forth by Karl Marx in his book the "Kapital". Notice the difference between "Mother Earth" and "The World". Mother Earth is real - "The World" is unreal, a total fiction: a "cube" in which people and animals and even the trees and plants are imprisoned by Mind Control of all sorts and of course by Inquisition, meaning the spying control of the people by those who love to suck on mankind like vultures. Watch the Film "Games of Thrones" and you see that horrific "his"-story of the Elohim(is Plural and wrongly translated with God).

Francis Parker Yockey wrote his Imperium at age 29, and the book lays out a blueprint for Europe's revival as an empire stretching from Ireland to the Ural Mountains. Yockey believed race was spiritual, though bound to biology. I discuss what makes someone a member of the white race. In the end, the shock of globalism's collapse may, in fact, force Europeans to adopt a hierarchical rather than egalitarian society.

Anton Chaitkin discusses the core issues at stake in America today which center on the age old struggle between the progressive nationalist outlook and Anglo-American imperialists. Without understanding this, you can't understand global affairs. The imperialists say nations and peoples should not have the power to rise up and become powerful countries using science and commanding nature. The early Americans built and industrialized, FDR and JFK fought against the imperial system. The empire wants forever wars and to take us back to feudalism through de-industrialization. Unless the U.S. returns to its roots, we'll have WWIII.

About Anton Chaitkin
Anton Chaitkin has been an activist since his childhood in the 1950s.

In the early 1930s, his father, Jacob Chaitkin, a pro-Franklin Roosevelt lawyer, had blocked some of the Wall Street financial arrangements with Hitler, and was legal counsel for the American Jewish Congress boycott against Germany.

Anton grew up committed to justice, with a strong sense of the realities of power politics.

About two years after the JFK assassination, Chaitkin heard from Lyndon LaRouche that financiers were shifting American strategy away from industrial progress, toward cheap labor, foreshadowing fascist policies and systemic collapse. An association was formed, to defeat those who had brutalized contemporary thought in science, economics, the arts and philosophy.

Chaitkin began a systematic inquiry into American history, finding that the mental map of former leaders was far more profound and more pro-human than anything available in the post-JFK era.

He has done sharply original work in American history, in hundreds of articles and in two books, Treason in America, from Aaron Burr to Averell Harriman -- a 600-page unveiling of the Eastern Establishment as the tory-British-racist-imperialist faction -- and George Bush, the Unauthorized Biography.

Invisible Empire is a damning indictment of the globalists through their own words and documents. Worldwide tyranny isn't coming, it's here. This isn't conspiracy theory, it's conspiracy fact.

Think the New World Order is merely "conspiracy theory"? Think again. While the world continues to be distracted with celebrity gossip, professional sports, and corporate controlled media, a cabal of global oligarchs are quietly consolidating massive wealth and power under their control. And they're doing it all out in the open, hidden in plain sight. Invisible Empire: A New World Order Defined researches in detail and exposes what the globalists and the politicians they control do not want alert, educated people to know. People need to realize the false left/right paradigm is merely to keep us divided and conquered and distracted while globalists are able to quietly and openly tighten the noose on unsuspecting citizens. Learn the truth of how governments are controlled, who controls them and what their ultimate plans are.

This is for the people whose requests for colonial empires remade in territorial.io couldn't be fulfilled or were only able to be partially fulfilled. I also threw in the Japanese Empire because why not.

p.s. This is not anywhere near as hard as remaking countries in territorial.io. You just need to have the patience to fill in the map.

The maps were made with MapChart.

https://mapchart.net/index.html

Note: These borders are not 100% accurate since I had to go by modern subdivision and national borders (many, but not all, of which actually do follow historic borders from the colonial era).

In terms of sheer drama and trauma, few years in recent memory compare to 2020, with the CoViD scare and BLM riots reaching worldwide. In 2021, by comparison, the past year was really more a continuation and consolidation of the last, as the Kyle Rittenhouse trial came to a surprising end, and the power elite and the Biden administration implemented its policies clamping down on the remnants of the Trump movement. Globally the CoViD lockdowns continue apace, affecting countries in Europe and parts of the Anglosphere such as Australia and Canada much more harshly than elsewhere, but signs of protest have been seen as well. As American geopolitical power further wanes as evidenced by several naval disasters and the complete bungling of the Afghanistan withdrawal - with a President at the helm who rivals Boris Yeltsin for his ineptitude - the world moves on, increasingly viewing the American empire less with awe and admiration and more with disinterest and fatigue. For those of us seeking a renewal of the North American Continent and the broader cultures of the world, this time may bring us that much closer to the inevitable demolition and subsequent rebirth.

Empire of the City ~ Ring of Power

5 months, 3 weeks ago

This video then is the denouement of the mini-series about Empires.
As I claimed in my previous video, the American Empire is dying. In this video, I will endeavour to back up this claim with some evidence.
Before we go any further, I just wish to say that … warning people about the death of the American Empire is the principal reason for me making this mini-series on Empires. Forewarned is forearmed.
Anyway …
Why is the American Empire dying? It’s dying because the Dollar is dying. The cause of the death of most Empires is due, generally speaking, to economic woes. The USSR lost the Cold War and later collapsed completely, in part because it couldn’t outspend the US in the arms race, but over-extended itself trying to do so.
Why is the Dollar dying? The Dollar is dying because it’s a Fiat Currency. It’s not backed by anything. It has no intrinsic value, in and of itself. I refer you to a previous video I did entitled, “Fiat Currencies” to get a better understanding of this matter.
The Dollar was previously backed by gold before 1971. Backing a currency with Gold is hugely important. This is known as the Gold Standard. I also refer you to three videos I did previously entitled, “The Gold Standard”, “Money” and “Money v Currencies” to get a better understanding of these matters.

But one event changed the situation: the Nixon Shock in 1971. I refer you to a video I did previously entitled, “the Nixon Shock” to get a better understanding of this matter.
So, the Dollar has been propped up by two things. Firstly, since 1945, it’s held the World Reserve Currency status and secondly, since 1973, it’s been backed by the Petro-Dollar System. The World Reserve Currency has kept the US dollar in its privileged position and the Petro-Dollar System has provided support, support which it would otherwise not have had.
I refer you to two videos I did previously entitled, “The World Reserve Currency” and also “The Petro-Dollar System” to get a better understanding of these matters.
The Bretton Woods Agreement in 1945 made the Dollar into the World Reserve Currency.
I refer you to a video I did previously entitled, “The Bretton Woods System” to get a better understanding of this matter.
The World Reserve Currency status and the Petro-Dollar System are failing. The Petro-Dollar System has been failing for a few years. Both are yet to fail entirely but I would say that the end is nigh. In recent times, many countries have been de-Dollarising and off-loading US Government issued Bonds.
I have a moving image in mind of the twin towers that came down in the 9/11 attacks. First one came down, and then the other. I think this is not dissimilar to what is happening and what will happen. And the actual end part might be just as sudden. One minute they are standing and the next they are heaps of metal, debris and dust.
When will it happen? I can only answer this by saying, who knows. Timings are tricky. I think we can probably say that we are in the final phase. It ha

There are other Empires in history that I wish to speak about, even if it’s only in passing ...
I should say that I have already talked about a few along the way through the course of this mini-series … namely, the Roman Empire, the Mughal Empire and the Persian Empire.
Permit me to list a few more.
The Inca Empire
The Byzantine Empire
The Mongolian Empire
The Ottoman Empire
The Babylonian Empire
The Austro-Hungarian Empire
I’m not going to talk about these Empires in this video besides listing them.
Why then, you might ask yourselves, have I bothered to do a video on them at all? Well, I’ve done so for a very specific reason.
Sometimes the lessons life offers up to us are supremely simple. This is one of those times.
These Empires share two things in common. The first is entirely self-evident. They are all Empires.
I will tell you the other aspect presently. Perhaps you have already guessed what it might be.
But, if you want to think about it for a bit before me telling you, then pause the video here. I will give you moment to do so.

The second thing that these Empires share in common is that none of them exist now.
Each and every one has ended at some point in the past.
They are all history.
The simple truth is that Empires come and Empires go.
They come into being, they increase, building in size, strength and stature and then, they reach a high point, their peak and they then start to decline, diminishing in size, strength and stature and then, they eventually stop existing altogether.
I’m aware that the picture that I’ve painted above, describing the life cycle of an Empire, is not an accurate representation of reality. Empires don’t necessarily follow this uniform pattern. Their rise and fall are not quite so orderly. Empires vary in nature considerably.
In some respects, Empires can be likened to the lives of a human. All people are born. That is a given. But all are born differently. The circumstances of birth can differ a great deal – be it a natural birth, or Caesarean section. A short labour, or a long, drawn-out labour. The circumstances into which they are born differ enormously also – the type of family that they are born into – rich, or poor. Their place of birth – country, or community etc.
People lead very different lives. There’s no need for me to go into details about that.
People die in different ways also. The causes of death are different for different people. Some might die suddenly, due to a heart attack for example, while others might grow old gradually and the process of their dying is relatively slow.
In any event, the point that I’m trying to make, is that Empires come and go.
Simple truths can be somewhat deceptive though … what I mean by this is one might skip over them without considering them and their implications fully. For me, the fact that Empires die is a profoundly important point. It makes me wonder about the reasons for their existence - the meaning of their life. It calls into question why they cam

This is a follow on from the previous video I did on the banana business. If you haven’t seen that video, I would recommend you doing so before watching this one.
Let’s now zoom in on three other countries to get a better understanding of how the United Fruit Company and the US Government conducted themselves.

Colombia
In 1928, some Colombian workers protested at their poor working conditions and low pay. On 12th November of that year, they went on strike. The Company was displeased by this. It refused to negotiate with the workers. The Company also made appeals to the US Administration. Its aim was to get the US Administration to apply pressure to the Colombian government. The Company claimed that the protestors were Communist revolutionaries. It was hoped that by saying this, it would sway the decision. Whether the US believed the story that the UFC had spun about the workers being Communists or not, they duly obliged and they made contact with the Colombian government. The US threatened to invade unless the problem was dealt with – i.e. to act in such a way as to protect the interests of the UFC. The Colombian government capitulated. On December 5th 1928, the protestors gathered in a town square. Colombian troops who had been dispatched to the location, then opened fire on the protestors, killing men, women and children. This was called “the Banana Massacre”.

Costa Rica
The situation for workers in Costa Rica was pretty bad across different sectors of the economy – not just in banana industry. And so, in the early parts of the 20th Century workers began to organise themselves into unions. They then pushed for reform, demanding improvements in general working conditions, a minimum wage and shift work of a maximum of six hours a day. They also called for a number of strikes.
In 1934 many thousands of peasants who worked for the UFC went on strike. This was dubbed “the Great Banana Strike”. On this occasion, the Company engaged in talks with the unions. Promises were made which brought the strike to an end. But the promises were never made good by the Company. Meanwhile, again, as in Columbia, the protesters were labelled as Communist insurrectionists.
To cut a long story short, despite this setback, Costa Rica could be regarded as something of a success story for the workers. They held out, and, in due course, gained some improvements in working conditions having signed an agreement with the Company in 1938.

Guatemala
In Guatemala in the 1950s, the democratically elected leader Arbenz was trying to bring about change in the country. He instituted some land reforms, distributing property to some landless peasants. It should be noted that the UFC owned 50% of the land in Guatemala at the time. Owning land was one way they been able to prevent competition and maintain market dominance. Some of the land they owned was left uncultivated and this is the issue Arbenz was addressing.
Needless to say, the UFC didn’t much care for his approach. In r

This video and the next, looks at the US Empire and its involvement in the banana business.
There is quite a tale to be told about bananas, so allow me to tell it to you. By the end of these two videos, I would venture to say that you might never see bananas in quite the same way again.
In 1870, an American by the name of Lorenzo Baker, came across bananas growing on the island of Jamacia in the Caribbean. (Bananas actually originate from Asia. The Portuguese are responsible for bananas being grown in the Americas.) But anyway … Baker spied an opportunity and decided to start selling them to Americans.
Initially, trade was, as to be expected, rather sluggish. But funnily enough, bananas proved to be a favorite of people attending the World Fair in Philadelphia in 1876. After that, word spread and Americans quickly developed a taste for bananas. Indeed, eating bananas became something of a craze. This meant that the banana business really began to boom.
But although sales started to soar, all was not so straightforward in the banana business. Bananas are somewhat problematic products in that they are a particularly perishable. Care and attention need to be paid to their handling because they can easily get damaged. And, as everyone knows, once damaged, bananas spoil. Also, they have a relatively short shelf life which means that the producer has to get them to the consumer as fast as possible before they go bad and become inedible. So, in order to ensure the product arrives in the best possible condition, transportation from plantation to the store has to be done as quickly as possible and also, as effectively and carefully as possible, so as to avoid any damage being done. Such issues aren’t easy to overcome and inevitably add to the costs of production. Furthermore, this meant that in order to make any money, a lot of bananas had to be sold.
To meet the new rising demand, to overcome any issues in transportation and to turn a profit, two big banana companies in operation in America at the time, decided to join together to form one, big company, “The United Fruit Company”. Merging made sense, because it enabled them to achieve economies of scale as well as being better able to control the supply chain.
The new enterprise established plantations in Guatemala. Soon enough they owned a fifth of the farmable land there. Over time, they expanded their operations into different countries throughout Latin America - Costa Rica, Honduras in Central America, the coastal areas of Columbia in South America, and Cuba in the West Indies. To give you an idea of scale, according to Wikipedia, “by the 1930s, they owned 3.5 million acres of land” in Latin America.
The UFC established communities in and around the plantations. On cursory inspection, such a thing might seem not too bad, as shops were set up and people were given places to live, but looking a little harder, things could be seen somewhat differently. The workers of the UFC were not treated very we

In the last video but one, I gave evidence to back up the claim I made that America was an Empire. The evidence I gave was with regard to America using its Military Might in the world.
In this video, I will consider the tactics of coercion the US uses in the realm of Economics.
Throughout the course of this video, I would encourage you to think in terms of Control.
The use of Military Might etc are rather obvious methods of control. Controlling by financial means are less apparent, more subtle. But for all their subtly, they can be just as powerful, as I hope to demonstrate.
Just to recap, some stealthy means of gaining and maintaining control are –
 by making trade deals with the target nations.
 by the exercise of power in some financial concern, or other.
Let’s turn our attentions to Iran to consider this first point - making trade deals with the target nations. In this instance, though it’s more like NOT making trade deals with the target nations because I’m going to be talking about sanctions.
Sanctions are one of the strongarm tactics the US uses in the realm of Economics.
Sanctions were imposed on Iran as far back 1979. Why? Because a large group of Iranian radical students entered the American Embassy in Tehran and took US citizens in the compound, hostage. This was the reason given for the sanctions, but if we pan out a little, we can see what took place in a wider context. Most notably, the Shah, the US puppet, was toppled by a revolution in January 1979 after several years of struggle. Needless to say this displeased the Americans.
The sanctions were lifted after the hostages were released in 1981. Sanctions were then reimposed on Iran in 1987 due to various, on-going issues prior to that. In 1995, sanctions were expanded to include firms making arms deals with Iran. A third round of sanctions were imposed in 2006 when Iran failed to comply with UN resolution 1696 which concerned Uranium Enrichment. The sanctions were aimed at thwarting Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Talks in 2016 resulted in a deal being done and the sanctions were then lifted. In 2018, President Trump withdrew the US from the Iran nuclear deal and sanctions were then reinstated.
The sanctions, spearheaded by the US, were on oil, gas, petro-chemicals and also included shipping, web-hosting, banking and insurance.
Needless to say the various sanctions, which have been imposed over the years, have hit the Iranian economy hard.
This is how the US treats nation states that it regards as enemies.
Before we go any further, I wish to say one thing. To all those American out there who might be offended by what I have been saying about America, I want to say this. I draw a definite distinction between the American people and the American Administrations. I should say that I’m not anti-American per se. It would be wrong for people to conclude that. I’m against the American Administration’s behaviour in both the past and the present - the policies that they have been pursuing. B

I should have mentioned this in a previous video, but I didn’t so, this is an addendum.
I want to define two terms. “Superpowers” and “Empires”. I have already defined an Empire. So, let’s look at what a Superpower is. Looking online the definition of a Superpower is “an extremely powerful nation, especially one capable of influencing international events”. I would say “supremely” rather than “extremely”, but this is perhaps being pedantic.
It would, in my opinion. be a mistake to confuse the two terms “Superpowers” and “Empires”. To equate one with the other would be wrong.
I think it’s fair to say that both the US and the Soviet Union emerged from WWII as Superpowers.
From early on in the war, Winston Churchill wanted the Americans to join and he secretly campaigned to bring this about. But, to no avail. It wasn’t until after Pearl Harbour in December 1941 that the US got involved in the war. Then, their being on the side of the Allies, proved to be a decisive factor in defeating the Axis powers and bringing the war to an end. This gives us a good indication of the strength of the US. The US can therefore reasonably be regarded as a Superpower.
I think that the terms Superpowers and Empires are related, but we perhaps should be wary about saying that all Superpowers are necessarily Empires.
I think it’s true to say an Empire needs to be a Superpower in order to be an Empire. It can not be an Empire, if it’s not a Superpower. Andorra, for instance, is a sovereign microstate located in the Pyrenese mountain range, between Spain and France. It can not be regarded as a Superpower and so it’s unlikely to become an Empire any time soon.
I’m not sure that it goes the other way though. The converse is not necessarily true. A Superpower need not be an Empire. A nation might have the status of being a Superpower, but it might chose not have any Imperial ambitions, or any take Imperial actions. My guess is that this is rarely the case, but nevertheless, the point still stands.
So the key aspect of an Empire is some kind of movement beyond its borders. The USSR can accordingly, then be considered as an Empire as it expanded its control beyond its borders. Throughout the Cold War, it controlled the various nations on its side of the Iron Curtain thus providing a buffer between it and the nations of NATO.
What about the US? I would say that if we are using the same criteria, it qualifies as an Empire also because it has moved beyond its borders.
You might protest at my saying this. You might counter my claims that the US was merely defending itself and its interests, after all, it came under attack from the Japanese. I would be inclined to agree.
However, I would have to respond to this by saying that once the Cold War was over, it didn’t then revert back to its original position and its “Isolationist” policies. What is more, it continues on with its “Imperialist” policies to this very day.
Also, as a side point it should be said that the US might hav

In the previous video we looked at how Empires come into being, specifically with regard to Miliary Might.
In this video I will focus on the Might of Money.
The use of force, or carrying out a Coup d’Etat, are means by which one country can control another. But these are rather obvious methods.
There are other, more stealthy means of gaining control –
 by making trade deals with the target nations.
 by the exercise of power in some financial concern, or other.
It should be said that money matters. Without money, Empires would struggle to survive.
Empires usually fall in no small part to monetary woes. The fall of both Roman Empire and the British Empire are good examples of this happening.
We use money every day as a means of exchange, but money more than just that. Money is important for another reason also. Money is a tool. And it can be used for the good, benefitting people, or it can be used for the bad, harming people. In this respect money then can be a weapon. It can be turned into a weapon of sorts and used for whatever nefarious purposes so desired.
Let’s turn our attentions back the British Empire again. More particularly, let’s look at The East India Company (that British vanguard) and its operations in the Indian subcontinent.
The Company turned the money into a weapon, not literally perhaps, but near enough. With the money they made from trading The Company were able to set up a standing army. In the first 150 years after it was established it employed a few hundred soldiers as guards. The following is an extract from Wikipedia. “The great expansion came after 1750, when it had 3,000 regular troops. By 1763, it had 26,000; by 1778, it had 67,000. It recruited largely Indian troops and trained them along European lines. The military arm of the East India Company quickly developed into a private corporate armed force used as an instrument of geo-political power and expansion instead of its original purpose as a guard force. Because of this, the EIC became the most powerful military force in the Indian subcontinent.

So, all that said, let’s have a look at the first of the two points I made regarding methods, the trade deals that are done with the target nations.

The best way to explain this is by way of an example. As I said in the previous video, the history of Persia is very interesting indeed and understanding it can give many insights into the world of geopolitics. So, let’s look at what happened in Persia …
The British Empire became interested in Persia once oil was discovered there in early 1900s. In 1908, the Anglo-Persian Oil Company (the APOC) was set up.
I should say at this juncture, before we proceed any further, we often find a blending of state and company interests when it comes to Empires – indeed so much so that it’s not easy to see where one ends and the other begins. As a side note, the Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini defined “Fascism” as being the merger of state and company interests. But anyway

In the previous videos, we looked at the British Empire – its beginnings and endings. We’ve also looked at the British Empire’s treatment of India and China. It’s now time to consider Empires in a more general manner.
In this video, I will focus on how Empires come into being.
Put in the simplest of terms, Empires are created by countries expanding the limits of their control beyond their borders. Control is crucial. Control is essential to an Empire because when you have control of a nation, you can direct it as desired. Conversely, when you don’t have control, or when you lose control of a nation, you can’t do anything.
The building of an Empire happens in various different ways.
 By using military might.
The most obvious method is by the use of force – armies invade and conquer the territory. We can look to the Roman Empire as an easy example. In AD 43 the Roman Empire, under the rule of Emperor Claudius, invaded and conquered Britain. The Romans had made several attempts before this, but none had been successful. Emperor Caesar tried twice in 55 and 54 BC. But failed both time. Emperor Claudius then succeeded where Caesar, did not. Even though the Romans were finally able to establish themselves as rulers in many parts of the country, the Romans didn’t manage to rule over the entirety of the British Isles. In the north of Britain, we can find the ruins of a wall built by the Romans. Hadrian’s wall, as it’s called, runs 73 miles (or 118 kilometres), all the way across the land, coast to coast, following an east west line. It was defended by garrisons of infantry, stationed in fortifications, placed at periodic intervals, along its length.
This wall defines the limit of the Roman Empire in the Western region. It’s the clearest demarcation of Roman rule that there can possibly be. Back in the days of the Roman Empire, they did not rule the land beyond, on the other side of the wall. They were unable to subdue the native inhabitants of what was back then, called Caledonia and is now, Scotland. The wild, warrior clans defied Roman rule by using what we would describe as nowadays as guerrilla warfare.
I only found this out recently, but the Romans also build another wall, further north – the Antonine Wall. The aim was to extend their rule that bit further. But they did not succeed in this endevaour. The clans of Caledonia were an unruly bunch. Deeming them ungovernable, the Romans gave up.
This example shows the importance of control to an Empire. Despite being a powerful Empire, with a mighty army at its disposal, they could not gain control of Caledonia.

Moving on, there are other methods of gaining control –
 By creating “spheres of influence” - dominions and protectorates etc.
We can gain an understanding of what diplomat’s call “spheres of influence” by looking at Persia (what is now called Iran). The history of Persia is a complex one, so I can only provide a couple snapshots here.
There was a contest between Britain and Russia for c

This is a follow on from the previous two videos which concerned the beginnings of the British Empire and the British presence in the Indian subcontinent.
In this video I will focus on China.
China, evidently, can not be considered as being part of the British Empire, but I think it’s worth talking about because it shows how Empires are liable treat other sovereign states.
I mention China also because back then, China was itsef an Empire, coming under the rule of the Qing Dynasty. What is more, it could perhaps be regarded an Empire today, or at least an Empire in the making. I think it’s safe to say, that it currently has Imperial ambitions.
Anyway, that aside, back to the matter at hand … The British are famous around their world for their love of tea. Tea is grown in various regions of the world nowadays, but back in the 18th Century, the tea, so beloved by the British, came principally from China. Britain imported, not only tea from China, but silk and porcelain also. Much to the chagrin of the British, China didn’t want anything in return at least in terms of British products. The Balance of Trade between Britain and China during that time period was therefore tipped in China’s favour. Moreover, the tea, silks and other Chinese products were paid for by the British in silver. As a result, lots of silver was going out of the British coffers and travelling East. Needless to say, this rather displeased the British, so much so that they devised a devious plan.
They turned a great number of Chinese people into drug addicts. Over a stretch of time, they contrived to get a significant amount of the Chinses populace addicted to Opium.
Opium is a narcotic. It’s the made from sap of the Poppy plant. It’s the source from which all our opioids are made. Opioids are analgesics - they provide relief from pain. They are the pharmaceutical medicines like morphine, fentanyl, Codine, Oxycontin. And of course, Opium is made into the street drug, heroin.
Anyway, once addicted, the British then supplied the Chinese with however much Opium they needed. Put in colloquial terms, they got them hooked and then they fed their habit. Truth be told, this is really what all drug dealers should do - if they are interested only in making money, to the exclusion of everything else and, if they have no regard, or care, whatsoever for the well-being of other humans. And so, repugnant as this is, this is what the British Empire did.
Anyway, crucial aspect of this operation was that they ensured that the Opium was paid for by the Chinese in silver. This meant that silver started to travel back to Britain.
The effect of the addiction was tremendous, causing lots of social and economic problems in China. In the late 1830s, the authorities in China reacted by trying to outlaw Opium, closing Opium dens and executing dealers. Tensions between the two countries escalated, clashes occurred and so began the First Opium War. In 1840 British gunships were deployed and bombarded Canton
