How Empire Builders Used Divide and Rule

imageBarely 65 years have passed and yet the Olympics, Downton Abbey, The King’s Speech, royal weddings and babies are all being deployed to present us with an idea of imperial Britain and the Windsors as harmless anachronisms, and not the brutal genocidal murderers who plundered, raped, imprisoned and murdered their way across the whole globe. Virtually every conflict today can be traced back to British colonial policies and divide and rule tactics. While we are well aware of the horrors of the Nazis, British concentration camps in South Africa are little known, as are the genocides, famines, displacements and brutalising all over Africa, Asia, Palestine and the Middle East in the name of the British crown. It is no exaggeration to say that 100s of millions of people suffered and died under the rule of this family’s ancestors down to the present day, yet they are paraded in public as though there is no shame in their past and as though they have no blood on their hands at all. And we are allowed no accountability, no anger, as though it never happened at all.
