And making it possible for yourself further existence and development of the Empire. \r\n\r\nbut!\r\n\r\pesli same Wikipedia first selects the aspect of the Empire, as\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\vet I personally would focus on the other side, other key features of the Empire\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\plot it is an Association of different peoples, multi-ethnicity and often polyreligious - into a single state - for me personally the main thing in the Imperial idea. Association at the level of at least relative equality of citizens regardless of their place of residence within the Empire, from caste and religious differences. Equality, at least formally,... and often very practical, as it was in the Roman Empire and in the USSR. \r\n\r\SS a clear identity not only as belonging to a particular nation, the carrier of a particular religion, inhabitant of a particular region - but the awareness of being a citizen of a single large shared state. \r\n\r\pwat on these foundations, in my understanding, and built the Imperial mindset.
