    Imperialism is an ideology (although it can be argued that it is more of a practice or policy than an actual ideology) that has traditionally believed a country should expand their power or influence through military action. Imperialism was once very popular and controlled the Overton Window, but has decreased in popularity over the years. Imperialism is noted for his war advocacy and belief that the powerful nations should rule over the weaker ones. Imperialism differs from Nation.png Nationalism in that he doesn't necessarily believe its nation is the best - though this is common - but rather believes that the big nations in general should rule over the small ones. He is generally seen as being in the authoritarian right area of the compass, but can potentially exist in the others. He defends himself against accusations of oppression by insisting that colonized people benefit because the richer nation helps them and gives them things they couldn't get normally, and they'll eventually get used to being part of a larger empire.

    Variants

    Colonial.png Colonialism

    Colonialism is the policy of a country or group of countries aimed at subjugating another state, territory or people through military, political or economic coercion. The political basis of colonialism was the forcible deprivation of the population of the colonies of the opportunity to exercise their sovereign rights usurped by the metropolises. Colonialism means the fundamental inequality of relations between the metropolis and the colony (province).

    Colonialism is accompanied by economic exploitation, the destruction of native culture, ethnocultural and religious characteristics, the imposition of official metropolitan culture, the formation of an ideology that justifies domination (racism, messianism, etc.), spreading imperial myths and stereotypes.

    Cultmp.png Cultural Imperialism

    Cultural imperialism is the practice of promoting, isolating and artificially bringing the culture of one society into another. Usually a large, economically or militarily powerful nation brings and promotes its culture. Cultural imperialism can be both an active, formal policy and as general attitude. Theorists of postcolonialism study cultural imperialism as a form of non-military hegemony.

    As an example, western countries produce the majority of media, such as films, music and comics. They have the money to produce them, while Third World countries buy these products because they are cheaper than producing them themselves. Therefore, Third World countries watch and consume media containing Western ways of life, beliefs and thoughts, becoming assimilated and thus erasing their own culture, whether voluntary or not.
