The craze for such power took place in the late 19th century when a rush for economic power and cultural superiority drove nations to taking control over other countries, often with no shortage of blood on their hands.

According to Sir Edward Burnett Tylor , “Everything that is really Mexican is either Aztec or Spanish” .
