    in other words, you just threw out some crap hoping it would stick and you have no ability to back up your claims.

    More of the same speculative BS with no empirical proof.

    Resistance evidently licensed disproportionate retaliation. When crushing opposition in Ceylon in 1818, the British killed over 1% of the population. Thirty years later not a single European on the island perished in the only insurrection worthy of the name. But 200 alleged rebels were hanged or shot, and more were flogged or imprisoned. Governor Eyre's reprisals after the Morant Bay uprising in Jamaica followed the same pattern. In the wake of their disastrous retreat from Kabul in 1842, the British meted out enough retributive homicide to earn the perpetual enmity of Afghanistan. Burma, Kenya and Iraq were subjugated with equal violence. After the Indian mutiny soldiers such as Garnet Wolseley did much to fulfil their vow to spill "barrels and barrels of the filth which flows in these niggers' veins for every drop of blood" they had shed. During the South African war the British allowed a sixth of the Boer population, mostly children, to die in concentration camps.

    That is correct. It goes on to this day in the form of killing innocent people in the Middle East to secure the flow of oil supplies for the sake of profit.

    Can you give a specific example to illustrate this point?

    The US has a worse, more extreme socioeconomic class system than Russia and China (unfree societies).

    Sorry. I should have been more specific. What I mean is that can you offer something to support this assertion

    Europeans have much greater wealth equality and because of this truth Europeans are much better at spotting a true rich person than your average American is.

    Yes.

    The average European, even if they are say, a unionized worker, knows the difference between a sports coat and a blazer. They're aware of class distinctions via clothing, via speech, via "socioeconomic cues" that your average American simply isn't even aware of. Your average European person of even moderate means will know immediately the difference between a sports coat and a blazer. The average American won't. The average European can detect class via social cues that the average American simply cannot. This is because the classes in Europe are much more accepted by the average person. They accept reality of class. Americans simply don't know their own class often let alone someone else. They don't know basic class structure 101 that your average European or upper class American kid learned when they were 12 years old.
