Some people in my country ( Indonesia ) called Netherland as COLONIZER. They had been colonized Java Islands more than 350 years. And bring my property to their country. Do you agree and has some proof ?

Colonization is part of our history. Physical colonization has enriched human knowledge, history, and interaction. And yes, there are proof of these acts - not only with property but also with culture. The colonizers left a lot of their culture when they left. These days, there may be lesser physical colonization but it is still evident in Foreign Direct Investments and globalization. Bigger countries seem to colonize smaller countries economically, politically, and socially - the way physical colonization does. Good day!
