Granting independence to colonial territories
Synonyms: Granting national independence
Claim: The lesson of Europe's past colonialism is that the harm it did to foreigners was not matched by benefit to itself ([ie] a benefit to the country as a whole rather than to a particular group). Indeed, that nation was often called upon to sacrifice in order to maintain imperial connections benefiting only a few.
