Imperialism put the instruments of violence into the hands of middle managers who lacked the mandate to produce sustainable political systems; their only mandate was to extract as much plunder from the native territories as possible, as efficiently as possible. 
The story of the film, Avatar, depicts the error of delivering police and military power into the hands of private interests. Imperialism is the expression of a failed empire. It represents the transfer of state function from the empire's palace to the commercial interests of private shareholders.
