Star Wars / Trade Wars (part one)

I was in Venice this week and as usual, made straight for St Marks' Square to see my old friends the Tetrarchs.

This is a famous group of four rulers of the Roman Empire, dating to around 300AD that is affixed into the side of St Mark's Cathedral - the heart of the city.

“So widespread was slavery in the Mediterranean and the Arabic world that even today regular greetings reference human trafficking. All over Italy, when they meet, people say to each other, “schiavo,” from a Venetian dialect. “Ciao,” as it is more commonly spelt, does not mean “hello”; it means “I am your slave.”
Peter Frankopan, The Silk Roads: A New History of the World

“A talent for following the ways of yesterday’, declared King Wu-ling in 307 BC, ‘is not sufficient to improve the world of today.”
Peter Frankopan, The Silk Roads: A New History of the World

“And yet, despite the horror it caused, the plague turned out to be the catalyst for social and economic change that was so profound that far from marking the death of Europe, it served as its making.”
Peter Frankopan, The Silk Roads: A New History of the World
