I was talking with a friend a few days ago, and it was an interesting conversation. Basically, I mentioned that Alexander the Great was probably the #1 known historic conqueror due to him winning so many battles, and his kingdom encompassing so much land in such short amount of time.
What's your thoughts? Anyone stick out in your mind?
The US: Suck it Mexico, Every native american tribe, Japan, Germany, all the countries in "Confessions of an economic hit man", and all the countries tied to the Dollar!!
We have military bases in over 130 countries.
And we could eradicate countries with the stroke of a "it's our solemn duty to bring freedom to *random country X*" propaganda campaign.
The US is the best conqueror, because no matter how much it conquers, the people still think they're in charge.
The invention of the printing press, followed by education of the masses enabled the written word to 'conquer' so much ignorance. The Internet is taking this a lot further, of course. That said, until each human being is able to bring his or her mind under the control of his Real Self, 'conquoring' as a way of imposing one's ego will on another, will continue to flourish.
