Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
vbo has posted several times on the transparently imperial nature of such bodies as the UN and the International Criminal Court.  The very idea of international law is ridiculous without the idea that there is some power capable of enforcing it, and the whole idea of enforcing legal judgements against sovereign entities is inherently imperial.
I have to disagree - among a community of individuals it is possible for the community to enforce judgements on individuals, or at least punish noncompliant individuals, by shunning.

Don't tell me the Apartheid embargo in the 1980s was imperial in nature.

Economics is politics by other means
