Parasite City, part trois

Parasite City is not all marble and monuments to power:

Along the waterfront, another structure named for an Imperator comes into view.

Some of the tabernacles of marble, indeed, venerate truly great figures of the Empire's history:

The wise eternal words of the greatest of our Founding Fathers have been preserved for the ages:

It would behoove our current Leadership to learn by example.

Indeed, perhaps the impulse to enshrine our god-Leaders on a grand scale has declined over time as a growing proportion of Imperial peons rejects the Leader worship cult:


But in the end, Parasite City continues to venerate and worship power, glory, and the unearned privilege of the ruling class:

Thus concludes our tour of the Empire's fatal centre.
