"History has shown us that we have had an endless parade of Domination Cultures, meaning many Empires have come and gone. The key characteristics of an Empire are extreme arrogance, greed, lies, male supremacy and stupidity, driven by the belief that unlimited economic growth is possible. Being a conquistador has been a central component of humankind development, and still is.
"Part of this Domination Culture is not caring about future generations, something that we may call intergenerational crime. Similarly, a domination culture doesn't care about trashing Nature, or annihilating many other species, and of course, any other culture. Worst of all, enforcing a new religion is frequently used as a legalization for these conquests. Fundamentalist religions still exist today and are at the core of many wars around the world."
