What is the point of view of the political cartoon entitled "Thus colonize the English"...
1 Answer | add yours
To understand the point of view of this cartoon, look at who it is by and think about what they would think of English imperialism.
This cartoon is labelled as a German cartoon. This means that it was drawn by someone from a country that was a rival of England's in the Scramble for Africa and other imperial ventures. The Germans would want to try to make the English look bad so that they could claim to be morally better than the English.
The cartoon implies that the British squeeze their colonies hard all for the sake of money (the coins). They pretend to be righteous (the preacher) but they are really just in it for money.
