  1. You can’t stop the pigs on top from destroying anything that might actually compete against them.

    The empire will continue until everything of value is looted and traded off to the next empire for immunity from prosecution for the crimes committed.

    You’ll note all of the guilty parties have compounds waiting for them to retreat to after the old empire surrenders to the new one.

    If you steal from the powerless and grovel to the powerful you can trade horses in the middle of the stream and never worry about getting your feet very wet.

    It’s pretty much the 4th Reich evolving into the 5th.
