Roger’s note: It would take an incredible stretch to imagine a world that was not colonized by the European nations (and lately, the United States). Imperialism is the perverse spawn of capitalism, which can never get enough natural resources and indentured labour to satisfy its voracious appetite for profit. This could as well be a map of Asia or the Middle East. Every line on you see is artificial and represents exploitation and suffering. As the British, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Belgian and German imperial adventures have faded into history, the United States with its military tentacles stretching to every corner of the globe, has filled the vacuum.
