CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): We have Bruce Gilley who's a professor of political science joining us, all about British colonialism. A very provocative topic that will, assuredly, make the media lose their mind – about how British colonialism actually made the world decent. Separation of powers, habeas corpus, freedom of speech, individual property rights, the respect and the dignity of the individual, where did all of those come from? The Magna Carta, the great thinkers of Edmund Burke to Shakespeare.

Why is it that the world, actually, became more civil? Well, certain cultures are better than others. Saying that out loud is a thought crime. British colonialism was the most benign global empire ever.
