Quite a remarkable piece of thought-provoking writing. Dr. Codevilla, for those of you who know his work.

This was the guy that took longer than Ymar, getting to the point, isn't it. I can tell after reading 8 paragraphs.

As for the American Empire, I kept looking for the colonies. There are protectorates, but no colonies. Not on this plane at least. There are rumors of slave colonies somewhere else though, strangely enough.

This is why it is important to move the capital around, to make sure the leechers spend more time finding the new capital elite than sucking the peasants dry.
