@eldang @genmon Yes, I'm amazed that anyone still finds empire defensible when the authorities were so keen to destroy the records that would show just how benevolently things were run.

I'm currently reading 'Inglorious Empire: What the British did to India' by Shashi Tharoor, and it really is the education I never had in school about the iniquities of (one part of) the British Empire.
