what if Europe conquered the whole world?
- Greg ToolsonLv 75 months agoFavorite Answer
They kinda did. The whole Western Hemisphere and Australia is decedent of European colonizers. Africa, India, Indonesia, and even parts of the Middle East were at some point in the past four centuries part of a European empire. And if you count the Soviets in Central Asia then it's really just the Far East and parts of the Middle East that have not at some point been under European control. Heck, you could even count Alexander the Great(a European) who conquered nearly the entire Middle East.

Europe has conquered the world. The conquered are not whole.
The english language is very illuminating in this regards.
English has become, to a large degree, the international language of business and science. ... Every time the British Isles were conquered, by the Danes, the Romans, and the Normans, instead of speaking the language of the conquerors, the English absorbed some of their language and made it part of their own.

Ask this question in 1900 and there'd be little doubt it had already happened in realpolitik terms.
A map of that era would have been almost smothered either by European colonial possessions, or nations founded by European colonists. Most of the rest that passed for independent (China, Argentina, Persia, Siam etc.) were under the thumb of various European business interests.

They don't seem to have any designs on conquering anyone. And they've got their own troubles with Britain trying to leave.
