Today's empire is just less obvious because it is losing. The planet cannot support it and it has expanded to every acre it can reach. There are no more wealthy foreign lands to ransack. A hundred thousand neighborhoods in a hundred thousand cities have a cop show up at the door of someone's house with a notice of eviction every day.

The sheer size and spread of discrete acts of violence almost renders it invisible. The flashpoints get smaller and smaller, but their glow is now everywhere. The diffuse glow of desperate and cannibalistic expansion, the end of empires.
