I interesting how British jingoism is only a thing due to propaganda. At the time of the empire, the british public being told lies of what was really happening in the colonies. And post empire being told scrubbed versions of history to keep the lie up.

It reminds me of how the British public became aware of how bad slavery actually was due to an insurance dispute and the court case having a lot of detail into slavery. or how Gandhi came over to communities near me like Darwen in the 1940s to explain why the Indians were protesting (which was hurting Lancashire textile industries) and by actually informing people got them onside because they knew what was actually happening.

Its a good reminder on how propaganda has been a long used tool to keep humans hating other humans.
