How to Draw
- Draw the imperialism ball.
- Draw a red border around it with a line going from the bottom left to the top right.
- Draw in the eyes
- Alter-Globalism - Global opposition to imperialism!
- Post-Colonial Anarchism - Me, but anarchist.
- Left-Wing Nationalism - Free the people from the foreign oppressors!
- Isolationism - The day our world superpowers will stop wasting our finances on petty wars and leave other nations alone is the day when we will achieve world peace.
- Indigenism - I'm very sorry for what the colonists did to your people... We will get your land back!
- Pan-Africanism & Pan-Arabism - Support the liberation of oppressed third world peoples against imperialism and neocolonialism!
- Leninism - One of my most famous advocates who opposed western imperialism. However, you did re-conquer many independent nations, but at least you gave them autonomy and cultural and linguistic rights, unlike the tsarists who did many genocides on them.
- Hoxhaism - ALBANIA WILL NEVER FALL TO IMPERIALISTS.
- Maoism-Third Worldism - We need a global people's war for the third world countries.
- Kemalism - You are a gigachad who pushed imperialist powers out of your land in the Turkish War of Independence. You also ended the Ottoman Empire and established friendly relations with your neighbors, and helped the Balkan nations to counter Italian fascist imperialism. Rest In Peace, legend.
- Tridemism - You ended the Qing Dynasty and established an anti-imperialist republic. It’s such a shame that a great revolutionary like you passed away so early.
- Paleoconservatism - Shame you are not the dominant branch of US conservatism.
- Alaskan Independence - Even with this fellow.
- Longism - Based American strident isolationist and political nationalist who opposed American intervention abroad and was a strong supporter of tariffs.
- Rooseveltianism - Thanks for defeating Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan and freeing peoples in the world. You also pushed for the decolonization of empires such as Britain. You are very based. Shame that modern neocucks ruined it all.
- Lincolnism - Another based American president. Thanks for defeating the British imperialist-backed Confederate State and freeing the enslaved population of Southern America!
- National Communism - Your idea of nationalism is based and I love Romania because their nationalism is literally standing up to all invaders. Shame you fell.
- Nasserism - Taking back the Suez canal and fighting Zionism and the British and French Interventionists is very gamer, but I'm not sure of the union with Syria and how you suppressed the Ba'athist Party in Syria and favored Egyptian interests were cringe.
- Triequism - Your fighting against the Japanese Showa devils is based, and so was your alliance with Nationalist China in the struggle against Japanese colonialism.
- Sollism - Great job defending Sordland and Sordish national sovereignty from Arcasia, United Contana, and Rumburg with autarkic and self-reliant economics!
- Castroism - Great job freeing Cuba from the American-backed Batista. Joining the Soviet bloc was bad although understandable for your case as the Yankees tried to invade Cuba with an economic embargo.
- Peronism - Based for opposing both the USSR and the US and securing the national sovereignty of Argentina!
- Cardenismo - Based chad who stood up against the US, Britain, the Axis Powers, and the Stalinist USSR at the same time, nationalizing the oil companies of foreign monopolies, and also improved the rights of the Indigenous people!
- Polish Partisanism - The Polish Partisans were the heroes of the Polish people against German and Soviet genocidal colonialism!
- Ron Paul Libertarianism - “War is never economically beneficial except for those in position to profit from war expenditures.” - Ron Ernest Paul
- National Libertarianism - You are the best form of right-wing libertarianism as you value national sovereignty with civil liberties. Fellow Ron Paul enjoyer. Globalism is a form of Imperialism that requires authoritarianism to subjugate small nations.
- Anti-Authoritarianism - We usually go hand in hand with each other.
- Anti-Fatuiism - We will never let the Fatui infiltrate and take over us! Death to the Fatui imperialists!
Those who are on the fence
- Separatism - Separating against empires is based but some of you have very ulterior and rather imperialistic motives.
- Nationalism - What kind of nationalism?
- Texas Separatism - You need help for freedom.
Wait, you support atlanticist imperialism? what in the actual fuck?
- Videlaism - I remember how you tried to retake the Falkland Islands from the British Empire, but you had to harbor genocidal Nazi imperialists.
- Anti-Communism - Based for opposing the imperialist colonial empire of the USSR. But why are so many of you imperialists?
- Khomeinism - I like you for overthrowing the police puppet state of Pahlavi, but you lost me when you funded Hezbollah in Lebanon, not to mention your own interventions in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen.
- Ba'athism - Who must go? The NATO and all their friends, or Iran and its ally controlling the country? (Sidenote, invading Kuwait was a dick move.)
- Maoism - Your three-worlds theory is incredibly based!
Your invasion of Tibet was uncool.However, your support of Khrushchev’s invasion of Hungary was cringe, so was your rapprochement with Kissinger.
- Gandhian Socialism - Supporting Indian independence is very based, but why are you racist towards blacks and simps for British imperialism?
- Marxism-Leninism - It really depends on which variant. Some of your variants like Hoxhaism and Guevarism are mega based, but the others are questionable.
- Titoism - You are based for getting rid of Nazi Germany from Yugoslavia, founding the NAM and supporting third world nations like Algeria. But your imperalist ambitions in Bulgaria and Albania is cringe.
- Dengism - Tankies love you but why did you invade Vietnam and support mujahideen? I don't like Soviet social-imperialists but American-backed mujahideen were just as bad.
- Chiang Kai-Shek Thought - Based for pushing out Japs from China and refusing to occupy Indo-China, as well as ending unequal treaties of China to imperialist powers. Love your quote: ‘China has no desire to replace Western imperialism in Asia with an Oriental imperialism or isolationism of its own or anyone else.’ But you kind of became an American puppet later on.
- Ilminism - Good job fighting against Japanese colonialism, but you later became an American puppet like the above. (Some of you like Park Chung-hee, who simps for both Japanese imperialists and American imperialists are mega cringe).
- Irredentism - Sometimes retaking land taken by imperialists is based but sometimes you are imperialism hiding behind a mask.
- Sanationism - You freed Poland from the genocidal Russian Empire and stood up against both the genocidal colonial empires of the Stalinist USSR and Nazi Germany. However, why did you steal the land of Ukraine and acted sussy against the Baltics?
- Stalinism - You claimed to be an anti-imperialist, yet you annexed the Baltics, occupied entire Eastern Europe, and made them your puppet states. You also invaded Iran with the B*its, and invaded Finland, and threatened Turkey with military invasions. Not to add the genocidal atrocities and the genocides and ethnic cleansings you committed against the Ukrainian and Kazakh people who were supposedly freed from the Russian Empire. However, at least you wasn’t as bad as historical Russian leaders towards the countries you conquered and left them with some autonomy. Even though your successors got rid of them subsequently. You should have sticked with your Socialism in One Country. Also, good job defeating Nazi Germany.
- Network Monarchism - You always boast about Thailand being the "only nation in South East Asia that was never colonized" but your collaboration with the Empire of Japan during WWII and the US during the Cold War against communism give me second thoughts about you.
- Gorbachevism - Good job ending Soviet imperialism and decades of oppression of the Eastern European peoples.
But why did you take down some socialist countries by force with the Americans?
- Ho Chi Minh Thought - Great job freeing Vietnam from French, Japanese, and American imperialists! Although Le Duan was a cringe social-imperialist.
His invasion of kampuchea was justified since Pol Pot was crazy and was making anti-imperialist look bad and got help from imperalist America
- Xi Jinping Thought - You are based for trying to prevent western imperialist powers from influencing China, even though I am a bit skeptical with your investments and loans for underdeveloped countries such as African countries. However, many African countries like you and you are definitely better than the European nations and US neocons that always bomb them or enslaving them for corporate gains. Your land claims in South China Sea are concerning though.
- Putinism - Our relationship is complicated. You helped a lot of anti-imperialist movements and countries
but only so they could ally as your mindless toolsbut at the same time what you did in Chechnya, Georgia and invading Ukraine are imperialistic. WHAT THE FUCK? YOU ARE PLANNING TO STEAL PART OF UKRAINE'S LAND?! RUSSIAN WARSHIP FAK OFF! РУССКИЙ ИДИ НАХ*Й! (Thanks for protecting Snowden though.)
- Zelenskyism - I will help you fight against the Russian Putinist Imperialism and save your country from the invasion!
Even though you are an American and NATO puppet.
- Anti-Americanism - We have similar goals, but you have to understand that not all Americans are imperialist. Also supporting imperialist dictators just because they are anti-American is a dick move.
- Anti-Atlanticism - Same as Anti-Americanism, except You don't just hate Americans.
- Fourth Theory - Can We please talk about your so-called "Anti-Imperialism"?!
- Imperialism - My mortal enemy, you're the root of all evils of this world, you bring neither progress nor civilization, all you bring is your own barbarism, plaguing societies with your horrendous crimes that have resulted in customs so tumorous that they end up giving you the last laugh because you inflict the nations you have plundered with a destructive disease that forces them to still suffer under your cruelty, BURN IN HELL.
- Colonialism - You are literally a brother of him!
- Democratism and American Republicanism - America isn't great and never was... I pray for the day of your demise in payment for all the crimes you committed against the indigenous inhabitants. You DID fight against the British Imperialists, but only because you wanted to beat them at their own game which you succeeded in turning the world into your neo-colonial image. I also hate what you did with Latin America by installing crony dictators everywhere and absolutely devastating their economies with tyrants. Not to add the amount of war crime and atrocities you committed in Vietnam and North Korea Although some of your presidents like FDR and Lincoln are based.
- Pan-Anglicism - "The Sun never sets on the British Empire" hahahha so like, where is your sun at now?
- Pan-Germanicism - May I remind you the genocide in Namibia, and the war crimes against Belgians!

- Showa Statism - You are no different from other imperialist scums! Don't you dare deny the genocidal atrocities you committed like the Nanking Massacre and murdering over 10 million Chinese civilians.
- Byzantine Model - Outdated empire that collapsed.
- Khanism - You're just a genocidal rapist that brought destruction and terror to people just because they were in your way. Thanks for showing what imperialism REALLY is.
- Fascism - I remember Ethiopia and all the other countries that you tried to conquer.
- Neoliberalism & Neoconservatism - Go to hell! You both literally drone strike countries in the name of Democracy? What the hell is wrong with you?! And no, saying this doesn't make me commie, you literally prop up dicatorships in democratically elected countries just because they oppose your economics. You are my new threat in the west and the global world so I hope you die painfully one day 💖.
- Khrushchevism - Damn you to hell for tainting my name, I will hate you forever for suppressing Hungary and using Cuba as a bargaining chip for your own greedy ends.
- Brezhnevism - Yet another dirty red imperialist scum like the above, you ruined everything!
- Zionism - You are backed by imperialist NATO, and is a mini-ethnostate that prosecutes Arabs. (Although I feel bad for the fact your people have been stomped over again and again, but please free Palestine.)
- Racism - Racism is used to continue demoralizing certain groups as an excuse to continue enslaving them. Why should I not hate you?

- Abyss Orderism - THE ABYSS WILL BE STOPPED!!!
- Diamondism - YOU WILL PAY FOR YOUR CRIMES OF GENOCIDE AGAINST ORGANIC LIVING THINGS AGAINST ON ALL OTHER PLANETS AND THE CRYSTAL GEMS KICKED YOU OUT OF EARTH!!!
Pink Diamond is based though.
- Space Colonialism - Space colonization and exploition is a bad idea, and even if they're aren't any other lifeforms it's a waste of resources.
- State Liberalism - Pink Imperialism is still IMPERIALISM and We shouldn't deny it! (and no, I am not Racist, Homophobic, Transphobic nor Misogynist because I said that.)
- Francoism & Salazarism - Fascist colonialist tyrants who kept Africa in chains!
- Kissingerism - One of humanity’s greatest terrorists and the face of the evil imperialist United States.
