EMPIRE

Whether royal or imperial, whoever wields power, in fact, never encounters in space anything other than obediance to his power; thus his law: power does not move. When it does, it strides on a red carpet. Thus reason never discovers, beneath its feet, anything but its own rule.

Michel Serres, The Troubadour of Knowledge, p. xiii
