Many postcolonial theorists argue that the predominance of white sovereignty in foreign lands has less to do with the ideals promoted in Kipling's poem and more to do with the drive of Industry and Imperialism. The only thing that is certain in this argument is the prevailing effect the ideology has had on global civilizations today.…
