    One thought on “Ancient and Modern Imperialism”

    1. Interesting. Definitely not what I was expecting. I was expecting to see a defense of British Imperialism, what I saw was a speech by a man trying to figure out how to reconcile the imperial legacy with the changing world and the rise of nationalism around him.
