Hang on...

I'm a capitalist. Must be, I own property and get a living out of it. Not so much at the expense of others, but by giving others somewhere to live.

Without a capitalist business structure, you cannot afford to enact the social programs everybody accuses successive governments of betraying.

Being labelled as Anglo Saxon does mean that in living memory our governments had an imperialist view. Worse, when that outlook was discarded, the transition for many countries was not our finest hour, nor indeed the finest hour of those who took over.

But to think somebody born post empire should have their actions judged as such is rather silly if you ask me.

Who admits to being Imperialist? Who IS imperialist? Are you saying everybody is either imperialist or marxist?

What about the 99.9998% of the world's people who express views that are neither at one extreme or the other?
