Indirect Imperial Dominance

Hegemony is a word that I ran across twice today. Someone said that the United States was Hegemonic....(It was a comment on Al Jazeera) and then I learned that Noam Chomsky, the guy I write in for President every 4 years, wrote a book called Hegemony or Survival. Yeah, I didn't take the class that was assigned for...but I did take a class about African History!

Flatland. It's very strange seeing a storm approach for 40 minutes.
If I stand on a ladder then I can see it coming for 60 minutes.

I earned my money today.
Anyway, Hegemony is the overt oppression of a people for political gain. I can barely understand the definition let alone a book about it. I don't have much more to say so I'll let Noam talk for a bit.
