Without defining what "imperialism" is, I throw this question out here 1) to see what responses I get and 2) to remind me to write a hub about it. I just finished listening to a rather interesting lecture on the subject and it got me curious.

That idea, Ptosis, was mentioned in the lecture. The theory is that all soveriegn nations are imperialistic by that definition. For in order to survive, they must have the right to make war in order to expand or be vanquished.
Great map, Junkseller. Yes, that is one definition of imperialism mentioned in the lecture, but not all of them by far. The professor might ask you to compare and contrast that to English imperialism of the 1800s.
