Summary

For empires to exist, they must be endlessly created and recreated. Stories of powerful men who shape the world with the stroke of a pen are fictions – and these themselves must also be collectively created by the many. As John Milton wrote in 1651, “a king has not made us, but rather, we the king.”1
