Did The British Empire Contribute To The Formation Of Modern Civilization?

As if God was giving chance to all and almost suggesting nobody wins, human history has seen empires rising with united pride and then crumpling down with division. Although European empires followed suite in the making of empires, almost due to a modern touch,
it was revolutions that brought them down. Winning France and extending up to 'Sun never sets in the British Empire', it was the British Empire that ruled more.

Did Sigmund Freud Contribute To The Modern Civilization?

Although civilizations don't form just like that, unlike the 'pocket civilizations' of the past, formation of Modern Civilizations is much more complex. It has taken centuries to form and there is no single entity, country, continent or gender that has formed it.
While in terms of gender, both sexes have contributed, in terms of race, all races have done so. Similarly, several revolutions, ideologies and personalities have contributed to its formation. Although it sounds strange, while even communism has contributed to its formation, amongst the giant personalities, even Sigmund Freud has done so.

However, with women going through suppression, due to, what the feminists call patriarchy, while it was natural for him to say so, as a reaction, it was not unnatural for feminists to accuse him of being a male chauvinist either. No wonder, the endless clash between feminists and Freudians reminds one of clash of civilizations.

Did The Chinese Civilization Contribute To The Modern World?

With satellite TV offering us views and scientists researching even on the remotest tribe, we know so much about the inhabitants of the corners of the world today. Unlike the shock of seeing the person of other race for the first time, migration has made meeting and friendship between people of different races possible.
In fact, with love marriage becoming the mainstay of marriage, especially in the western world, we are even seeing mixed race people. With the aid of social networking sites, we have even made friendship with persons from the other corner of the world.
