I need to simplify and clarify sentences number 1 and 3. Can you check the word choice (ex. impose) in the other sentences, too?

1)The Victorians were great moralizer: they faced a large number of problems on such a scale, that they felt obliged to so they promoted a code of values that reflected the world as they wanted it to be, not as it really was, based on personal duty, hard work, respectability and charity. 2.These values were established during the reign of Queen Victoria, who ruled constitutionally from 1837 to 1901.
3) These values were refined by the upper and the middle classes, who held the political and economical power, but they were equally applicable to all strata of society.
4) The idea of pride was connected with the concept or racial superiority.
5) There (?) emerged a powerful belief that the races of the world wer divided by fundamental physical and intellectual differences, that some were destined to be led by others.
6) It was thus an obligation imposed by God on the British to impose (??) their superior way of life as well as their institutions on native peoples throughout the world. The expansion the empire was therefore regarded as a mission.

  1. 1. The Victorians were great moralizers: They faced a large number of societal problems, so they promoted a code of values that reflected the world not as it was, but as they wanted it to be, based on personal duty, hard work, respectability and charity.

    2. These values were established during the reign of Queen Victoria, who ruled constitutionally from 1837 to 1901.

    3. These values were refined by the upper and the middle classes, who held the political and economic power, but these values were equally applicable to all strata of society.

    4. The idea of pride was connected with the concept or racial superiority.

    5) A powerful belief emerged that the races of the world were divided by fundamental physical and intellectual differences, that some people were destined to be led by others.

    6. It was thus seen as an obligation thrust by God on the British to impose their superior way of life, as well as their institutions, on native peoples throughout the world. The expansion of the empire was, therefore, regarded as a mission.
