When your empire deploys soldiers against people banging drums and chanting slogans because your empire extrajudicially killed someone, during a trial for another extrajudicial killing, when it occupies an entire city to stop people from speaking in the street, when it throws journalists around in the street while everyone watches, is that really an empire worth defending? Is that an empire that has a future you want to live in? Don’t talk to me about justice when that kind of thing is going on. One day the men with guns will give an order, and nobody will obey it. And that will be an interesting day, for sure.
