Feuer. Imperialism and the Anti-Imperialist Mind. Transaction Publishers, 1989. P. 4.</ref> The second type identified by Feuer is "progressive imperialism" that is founded upon a [[Cosmopolitanism|cosmopolitan]] view of [[World population|humanity]], that promotes the spread of [[civilization]] to allegedly backward societies to elevate living standards and culture in conquered ter towards [[banking]] and [[finance]], as commodity production was outsourced to the empires' [[Colonialism|colonies]]. Lenin concluded that the competition between empires and the unfettered drive to maximise [[profit (economics)|profit]] would lead to wars between the empires themselves, such as [[World War I]] in his contemporary time, as well as continued future military invasions and occupations in the undeveloped world to establish and expand markets and exploit cheap labour for the [[Monopoly|monopolist]] corporations of the empires.

Rhodes founded the [[De Beers Mining Company]], owned the [[British South Africa Company]] and had his name given to what became the state of [[Rhodesia]]. He liked to "paint the map [[British Empire|British]] red" and declared: "all of these stars&nbsp;... these vast worlds that remain out of reach. If I could, I would annex other planets."<ref>[[S. Gertrude Millin]], ''Rhodes'', London: 1933, p.138.</ref>]]
 
 
'''Imperialism''', as defined by the ''Dictionary of Human Geography'', is "an unequal human and territorial relationship, usually in the form of an empire, based on ideas of superiority and practices of dominance, and involving the extension of authority and control of one state or people over another."<ref>Gregory, Derek, Johnston, Ron, Prattt, Geraldine, Watts, Michael J., and Whatmore, Sarah (2009). ''[http://books.google.com/books?id=5gCHckKszz0C&printsec=frontcover&dq=dictionary+of+human+geography&hl=en&sa=X&ei=Nah1UdLTNYfgqAHcgoCQDg&ved=0CDIQ6AEwAA The Dictionary of Human Geography]'' (5th ed.). Wiley-Blackwell. p. 373. ISBN 978-1-4051-3288-6</ref> [[Lewis Samuel Feuer]] identifies two major subtypes of imperialism; the first is the "regressive imperialism" identified with pure conquest, unequivocal exploitation, extermination or reductions of undesired peoples, and settlement of desired peoples into those territories.<ref name="Lewis Samuel Feuer 1989. P. 4">Lewis Samuel Feuer. Imperialism and the Anti-Imperialist Mind. Transaction Publishers, 1989. P. 4.</ref> The second type identified by Feuer is "progressive imperialism" that is founded upon a [[Cosmopolitanism|cosmopolitan]] view of [[World population|humanity]], that promotes the spread of [[civilization]] to allegedly backward societies to elevate living standards and culture in conquered territories, and allowance of a conquered people to assimilate into the imperial society, an example being the [[British Empire]] which claimed to give their "citizens" a number of advantages. <ref>http://www.hoover.org/publications/defining-ideas/article/105341</ref>
 
 
The term as such primarily has been applied to Western political and economic dominance in the 19th and 20th centuries. Some writers, such as [[Edward Said]], use the term more broadly to describe any system of domination and subordination organized with an imperial center and a periphery.<ref name="Edward Said 1994. P. 9">Edward W. Said. Culture and Imperialism. Vintage Publishers, 1994. P. 9.</ref> According to [[Marxism|Marxist]] theorist [[Vladimir Lenin]], imperialism is a natural feature of a developed capitalist [[nation state]] as it matures into [[monopoly capitalism]]. In his work ''[[Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism]]'', Lenin observed that as capitalism matured in the Western world, the economy shifted away from real commodity production towards [[banking]] and [[finance]], as commodity production was outsourced to the empires' [[Colonialism|colonies]]. Lenin concluded that the competition between empires and the unfettered drive to maximise [[profit (economics)|profit]] would lead to wars between the empires themselves, such as [[World War I]] in his contemporary time, as well as continued future military invasions and occupations in the undeveloped world to establish and expand markets and exploit cheap labour for the [[Monopoly|monopolist]] corporations of the empires.
 
   
 
It is mostly accepted that modern-day [[colonialism]] is an expression of imperialism and cannot exist without the latter. The extent to which "informal" imperialism with no formal colonies is properly described as such remains a controversial topic among historians.<ref name="Bush2006">{{cite book|author=Barbara Bush|title=Imperialism And Postcolonialism|url=http://books.google.com/books?id=6qmJrjHcBkkC&pg=PA46|accessdate=28 September 2012|year=2006|publisher=Pearson Longman|isbn=978-0-582-50583-4|page=46}}</ref>
