    a Trans-National corporate empire and our politicians are merely princes of the empire's court.  David Hume talked of empire as an economic system and what we have today is a trans-national corporate empire run for the benefit of the elites.  Until we banned together in a trans-national labor movement, we will be mere serfs, regulated to the fields and factories for slave wages, available to fight their wars whenever neccessary.

    Any man's death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind. Therefore, send not to know for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee. John Donne
