It was said that ‘the guinea and the gallows’ were the true instruments of British imperial power.
The guinea represented the coined wealth of Great Britain.
The gallows represented its… constabulary zeal in policing restless natives.
This is the 21st century of course… a time of enlightenment.
Today’s instruments of imperial power are no longer the guinea and the gallows.
No. Today’s instruments of imperial power are ‘the dollar and the drone.’
The dollar and the drone are America’s weapons.
