"In the days of gunboat diplomacy, colonial regimes depended on the puppet governments of their protectorates to enforce the extraterritorial rights of their nationals and corporations against the local population. Corporations are just as dependent today on governments to suppress competition at gunpoint and externalize their operating costs. Likewise, the corporate world order depends for the enforcement of its centrally important 'intellectual property' rights on a 'DRM Curtain,' enforced by the satellite states of the U.S. and the Washington Consensus."
