To the Victor

In 1066, for case in point, when William the Conqueror crossed the channel and took England, he nullified all preceding authorized landholding and rather allocated just about every town and farm in all of England to his generals and favorites as their individual hereditary fiefs.

Now right now, in Ukraine, Russia’s Vladimir Putin is serving crystal clear recognize that he is asserting a ideal of conquest by grinding Ukrainian buildings, tradition and people today into the dust of the earth. He has designs to rebuild the country in his own graphic and likely, if profitable, granting his generals and favorites brand name new lands of their very own.

Chattel slavery was but a different correct of conquest and, most a short while ago, was sourced in Black Africa. But today, according to reports, ownership of human bodies and minds is resurging in Eastern Europe. A lot of thousands of Ukrainians are becoming deported to Russia, the place they will get the job done in concentration camps for their new proprietor, laboring with out civil or human rights.

Democracy, prosperity and human legal rights acquire work, the form of function that Individuals and Europeans look no for a longer time inclined or even capable of carrying out.
