9. The Monarchy was another cog in the

exploitation of worldwide native people. England viewed it's colonies primarily as a supplier of raw materials, which included labor. They also left the majority of those colonies with the basic structures on which to build future good governance, judiciary and educational systems. The question of whether or not their previous colonies were fully prepared for self government, and ultimately independence, is very debatable. The fact that so many of those past colonies chose not to build on those infrastructures is a symbol today of those failures.
