Benevolent Mother

The latest Prager University offering features HW Crocker III, best-selling author, historian and executive editor of Regnery Publishing taking a moral tour of the British Empire, a civilizing force not of oppression but of freedom.

A much remarked upon fact of history is how much better off countries that were once British colonies are today than those that were colonized by other European powers. One only need examine the freedom and democracy that links the Anglosphere today to see that having once been ruled by the British was more of a blessing than a curse.
