Seems people have owned that land before, and never conquered the world. this folly was followed by Genghis Khan whose people are now stabbing the Han in Ulan Bator shopping malls to drive them out of business, Hitler Youth who are now almost totally disarmed and disinterested, and Napoleon among other failed fantasies.
