Thing your country has to do to become big and to not be called country anymore, but empire instead. This way United Kingdom and France became big and powerful, though later got colonized by the United States themselves, which in turn was once colonized by UK (see New York , Virginia etc.) and France (see Lousiana). Oh the irony!

Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life – sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

Thinking that all groups of white people (Europeans) colonized everything is ignorance, and it spreads like wildfire. You don't hear about many Russian or Polish colonies outside Europe/Eurasia. You don't hear about many parts of the world colonized by Eastern European groups. The Greeks also don't do much colonizing in recent history, so it's mainly been about 7 or 8 groups of Europeans that did most of the colonizing worldwide (English, Dutch, German, French, Belgian, Spanish, Portugeuse, and Italian). Those 7 or 8 groups have had a lot of the influence in Europe, so people in other parts of the world wouldn't have any more time to differentiate between an Italian and a Bosnian than someone in Europe would have time to differentiate between a Tanzanian and a South African, thus theres a lot of assumptions and ignorance based on what people look like.
Not even every family in every country that did colonize other parts of the world was involved in colonization. There were people/families in England, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium that didn't have the time on the money to go out and explore the world, look for gold, or enslave other groups. They were going to work for the same kinds of people that were colonizing other parts of the world.
