At what point in history did it become immoral to conquer and colonize and why? That acting in your own self interest or the self interest of your tribe is somehow a bad thing for anyone else than the conquered doesn't fall naturally to me. Is it an abrahamic concept?
I have no relevant images
>At what point in history did it become immoral to conquer and colonize and why?
Never really. The colonial powers were broke after WW2 so they were going to give up their territories willingly or unwillingly. A lot of them (barring Portugal and France) went the first route.
>That acting in your own self interest or the self interest of your tribe is somehow a bad thing for anyone else than the conquered doesn't fall naturally to me. Is it an abrahamic concept?
Yes. Brutal slavery was never really a concept within human physique post-Abrahamics. All three of them spoke about treating your conquered fairly so it was obviously only the next step to emancipate them.
Who said it was immoral besides leftists with racial biases?
If the British bring a bunch of warring tribes to heel and stop them fighting and only expect them to let their traders collect ivory and prospect for gold and diamonds it is of course a good thing.
On the other hand if the Belgians set up rubber quotas and instigate violence and the hacking off of hands then it is not so good.

What is the best civilization possible created only from parts of 4 ancient civilizations? What kind of jobs would there be, what kind of clothing, building, layout of cites etc.
Depends on which period. Egypt might be the most comfy all around if you're upper-class. Indus Valley started after the rest but they were soon the most technologically advanced. Fertile Crescent created agriculture so they were probably well fed.
I'll probably go with the Yellow River because of the Mandate of Heaven policy which gives me the chance to move up in life.
Is Civilization is what separates us from animals, then why civilization mimics their behaviour?

Africa posting should be banned.
Rome posting should stay.
WWI and II should be moved to /k/
The history of the movement and civil rights through history is fine.
All "what race were X" threads should also be deleted.
