"Conquest" in context

Conquest is the act of forcibly or by persuasion taking or seizing control of a country, region, or piece of land. This can be done by military force, coercion, or by tactics such as economic and diplomatic means. Historically, conquest has been seen as a legitimate form of warfare, but some argue that it should no longer be seen as acceptable, as it results in the stripping of land and resources from occupied countries, leading to a permanent escalation in conflict and violence.

In some cases, conquest has been seen as a means to an end, and in other cases, as an opportunity to expand one's power and wealth.
