English is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world and many foreign countries such as China add English to their school curriculum. You can still see the impact of the British everywhere. The British drove out the Native Americans which eventually ended up becoming the United States. They also had many colonies in Africa, which is why many African nations such as South Africa have English as their official language. Heading over to the dark side, the British Crown and early company rule caused many native civilizations to collapse. Then, they were enslaved and forced to work the land. This resulted in cycles of poverty and death. They also brought over Old World diseases wherever they went. Last of all, they were the key reason why the majority of Chinese people smoke and the motivation behind China's industrialization after China was defeated in the Opium War.

This is true, but the Roman Empire has influenced the British empire in a few ways as well. For example, the English language is made up of over 40% Latin. Several laws in our modern society have also been based on ancient Roman laws.
Your arguement is invalid.

Yeah, and the Romans started an ancient form of the Eurozone by using a common currency. But then again, I would have to say that the Greeks were also influential. The Romans developed most of their ideas from the Ancient Greeks.
My journey here at Celtic Heroes has been a long one. Although I am sad to leave, I will forever cherish the memories I made and the lesson I learned. Farewell.

British. Do you know how many food shortages there would be if England did not begin the Industrial Revolution? Without new farming technology, agricultural solutions, and crop rotational systems; food will be produced slowly in SMALL quantities.

I would definately have to say the Brittish empire. I mean, the Romans were big and all, but the Brittish pretty much ruled the world at one point, having colonies almost everywhere.

This is true, most of the world would probably still be subsistence farming if it wasn't for the industrial revolution.
