Messi is the best
It is funny (or ironic) today I am teaching about decolonization and the poll is about Empires.
I seems weird to include two options that seem mutually contradictory:
The Roman Empire (not the HRE)
Those bloody capitalist with their empires are at it again...
The Roman empire predated capitalist modes of production. It's economy, while in some areas market-based, was also marked by extreme levels of human exploitation and inequality... all of which existed without any overriding capitalist motive. While Marx and Engel's anthropology is now-discredited (especially their beliefs on Native Americans and East Asia being caricature), Rome doesn't entirely fit into a capitalism causes imperialism causal chain unless you expand both categories to include almost everything.
The French try not to assassinate leaders from their former African colonies challenge level impossible
