With the Short Parliament dissolved, Charles raises a new army as best he can without English taxation.

 Bonus - The Philosophy of Empire | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3634

To understand the past, sometimes we need to examine our values and subject them to philosophical analysis. The British Empire was a complex, varied entity that stretched across the world and changed over the centuries. How do we understand the mindset of those people in the C19th who created it, or lived in it? This episode is designed to get you thinking and analysing big questions and unpleasant moral problems. Ultimately the answers will be down to your judgements. Be warned some material is upsetting and contains references to genocide, racism, slavery, the holocaust, abortion and critiques of religion. I hope you find it stimulating. Listen to Age of Victoria here: https://pod.link/1234105258 Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
