The Disadvantages of Pursuing Empire.

I am here, Cecil Rhodes.
You are wondering what message I wish to impart today. It is a message of warning to those who pursue empire. I know the people who engage in this are so mesmerized and dazzled by power that they believe they are in the right in subjecting and oppressing other people and lands.
Well, this provides a temporary power. But in the long term, it only produces misery. This has been my direct experience, and the experience of many others. I know that many of these mortals will not heed this warning. That’s too bad for them. We ignore our soul to our own peril.
God Will Find a way out of this present impasse, and your own life will be a happy one.
Cecil John Rhodes (5 July 1853 – 26 March 1902) was an English-born businessman, mining magnate, and politician in South Africa. He was the founder of the diamond company De Beers, which today markets 40% of the world’s rough diamonds and at one time marketed 90%. An ardent believer in colonialism and imperialism, he was the founder of the state of Rhodesia, which was named after him. After independence, Rhodesia separated into the nations of Northern and Southern Rhodesia, later renamed Zambia and Zimbabwe, respectively. South Africa’s Rhodes University is named after him. He set up the provisions of the Rhodes Scholarship, which is funded by his estate. (Source Wikipedia)
