The British Empire is arguably the most important and influential empire to ever exist. Their extreme power and many colonies in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries made it immortalized in history. The sheer size of the British Empire was something special in itself. As the article in the research states, "By 1921, the British Empire ruled a population of between 470 and 570 million people, approximately one-quarter of the world 's population. It also covered about 14.3 million square miles, about a quarter of the Earth 's total land area" (N.W.E, p. 1).
Africa is typically thought of as being a continent full of violence and revolution. This concept may have originated from the poor treatment of Africans by the rest of the world through colonization, forced labor in Africa, and the enslaving of Africans in other regions of the world. The danger and violence that stemmed from many countries gaining independence and experiencing political upheaval has been thwarted by peacekeeping efforts from outside agencies, like the United Nations. Africa has had a violent past, but only because of the exploitation by the Europeans, and eventually Americans. Ultimately, their ethnocentrism led to violence and the stereotype of danger in Africa.
Men of the German Reichstag, the representatives of our Great Germany, and the volks that make this nation pure, I salute you. I am proud to address you today as the strongest nation in Europe, feared by our neighbors, feared by the English, and feared by the Americans. Let me begin by enforcing that we are the leaders of this continent! We are responsible of our fates, not the opposition.

Today, the general population who occupy these regions take a pride in saving these dialects as a method for securing their legacy. Be that as it may, the Celtic people groups who attacked Britain are accepted to have incorporated with the general population who beforehand occupied the island, engrossing components of the dialect talked by this gathering, much in the way that the Normans were later to receive numerous English words so as to adjust to their new country. The Celts had officially spread their impact crosswise over the greater part of focal Europe and collaborated with the Germanic tribes. Their dialects were not held in Europe generally, but rather their impact can be seen through unobtrusive changes – in France for instance, the utilization of Latin was adjusted through the neighborhood impacts of Celtic dialects. Tongues talked in northern Spain are vigorously affected by Celtic right up 'til today
The conflict with France was one of the most important factors in the creation of British identity. Conflict encouraged active support for nation and overshadowing of social class differences. National identity is usually understood as fixed, when it is, in fact, reinventing over and over again. (Storey, 14) However, there is no “Britishness” without a sense of belonging.
