Colonies Without Colonialism

Colonies Without Colonialism is a concept meaning, quite simply, the establishment of (often reciprocal) colonies on the basis of equal partners rather than based on domination. The concept was the ideal during much of the colonialist era. The ideal wasn't always achieved, of course, but did sometimes succeed.

One of the most striking example of successful Colonies Without Colonialism is the NAL-SLC itself -- a brilliant combination of Native and Newcomer, rather well balanced and equal of footing in the resulting country.

It often involved European and Asian countries exchanging colonies (such as between England and China), so that today there are Chinese and Indian exclaves in Britain and so forth. India has generally proven itself a good place for such colonies to thrive, as the FK, France, Scandinavia and China have or have had colonies there.
