As a point of order, I feel compelled to mention that this particular Man is a subject of the British Empire, not a member of it. I was born in one of the first lands conquered by England. But that won’t stop me from giving a glowing answer. Who, after all, should better sing the praises of the Empire than one subjugated by it?
Every proof of the lasting nature of our Empire can be obtained by observing my native home of Ireland. We have been under British rule for many a century, and already our agitation has faded to…to…
Well, to be quite accurate, the agitation has not faded appreciably. In recent decades, the clamor has actually grown. But never mind facts; they are bad for colonial work. Let us try another tack.
You can see how efficient the British colonial machinery has become simply by comparing Ireland with India. In the Great Famine in Ireland, some three decades past, mere hundreds of thousands died of disease and starvation. In India’s more recent famine, Britain managed to elevate the death toll into the millions.
The British Empire: Now with ten times more colonialism! I ask you, how could such an empire possibly fail?
Well here it is. Proof that the British Empire was the best Empire to have ever existed.
