Borderless and brainless
Convective thought while listening to Ebola aka BBC breaking down all borders and eliminating all heresy.
The concept of a borderless and brainless empire,
as exemplified by EU and USA STRONG, is brand new.
Before the 20th century, empires didn't try to eliminate all distinctions among humans, didn't try to inject MY THOUGHT into YOUR BRAIN. From Persia to Rome to Ottoman to Britain, pre-20 emperors were more like farmers, and colonies were more like livestock. Colonies were expected to provide eggs or milk or meat, but the emperor didn't expect them to become Just Like Me. The emperor understood that Hindoos and Nigerians and Bulgarians had their own ways of doing and thinking, just as chickens and cows and horses have their own ways of doing and thinking. You get more milk and meat when you work WITH those natural differences.
Familiar example: Pontius Pilate didn't invoke "universal human rights" shit when the Judaeans wanted to execute a revolutionary. PP made it clear that Rome didn't have a problem
with this particular radical, then let the locals do it their own way.
Since Lenin, emperors no longer expect colonies to be cows. Now colonies are expected to be My Internal Organs. Milk and eggs are no longer the purpose of owning an empire. Pure distilled power is the only goal. Any attempt by a colony to show its own behavior or mark its own boundary is ruthlessly squashed by armies of T-cells, as we see now in EU and USA STRONG.
Now that Lenin has been combined with Goldman by neocons, the force is immensely magnified. Securitization works infinitely better than socialism. Mix and mash all enterprises into one big blob, then chop it up into indistinguishable pieces and use the pieces as poker chips in a rigged casino.
