Destroying the myths about slavery

An essential part of the wokist narrative, now dominating the academy, is that colonization by European nations brought nothing but suffering to the people and places they colonized. The contrary is, however, is true. Despite causing some suffering, the European colonizers brought on balance civilization to those countries. There is plenty of evidence to back such a claim – particularly with regard to the British. One of the claims with which haters of white people and their civilization use to thrash them is slavery. Historian Nigel Biggar states the facts.

The truth about colonialism

It is high time for some sense and historical accuracy to enter the vigorous ‘debate’ about colonialism in general and Great Britain’s colonial past in particular. Nigel Biggar Emeritus Regius Professor of Moral Theology at the University of Oxford and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Pusey House, Oxford has done just that with his just published ‘Colonialism’. From Triggernometry’s description of the their interview with Biggar:

‘Nigel Biggar CBE was Emeritus Regius Professor of Moral Theology at the University of Oxford and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Pusey House, Oxford. He holds a BA in Modern History from Oxford and a PhD in Christian Theology & Ethics from the University of Chicago. His most recent book ‘Colonialism: A Moral Reckoning’ was initially accepted by Bloomsbury, who later changed their mind claiming “public feeling on the subject does not currently support the publication of the book”. The book was ultimately published by William Collins and has become a Sunday Times Bestseller.’

See the final 10 minutes of the video to hear who at Bloomsbury kicked up the fuss, forcing the publisher to run away from the contract and the author to take it back.
