Saturated Fatty Acids

Saturated Fatty Acids differ by length.

Short-chain fatty acids have five or less carbons
Medium-chain fatty acids have 6 to 12 carbons
Long-chain fatty acids have 13 to 21 carbons
Very long chain fatty acids have 22 or more carbons.

Empires only exist by war.

They live on aggression and exploitation.

We may admire empires, but forget their modus operandi.
The outer forms are different,
but the inner forms are the same.

It is from the inner forms,
that the outer forms manifest.
