“Whether we should endure the violence of the state, as a defense against the yet more fearful violence of our neighbors, and whether there comes a point where the violence of the state must be resisted are great recurrent questions of moral and political life.” — Robert Bartlett, “Lords of ‘Pride and Plunder'”

    I wonder whether we’ve occupied all the remote tropical islands yet. If I sew myself a flag, can I claim one?

    Sorry. They’ve all been claimed. You could probably buy one.

    But Tetman, I have a flag! Isn’t that enough to oust the natives from their home?

    That’s so old school. One does not “oust the natives” these days. One puts them to work in factories they are allowed to leave only to go to their dormitories. Then one racks up the profits and runs for president.
