On Kings, Queens & Other Beings

The strength and wealth of almost any monarch is built on the weakness and exploitation of those under the reign. Even when elevated and beloved by a nation, one has to conclude that there’s an inherent and undeniable ignorance on the part of the masses, which prevents them perceiving the fallacy of their faith; the madness of their desire to see the personification of their inadequacies reversed and represented in what they then regard aristocracy.

But then again, the code of human relations and all its aspects – duty and responsibility, influence and tradition, action and interaction, perspective and judgement – is arguably the most interesting element of the human experience.

  1. This is all true, as is the love/hate between Emperor Mugabe I and his fiefdom’s wild animals. I just had to throw that in.

  3. Ha…. if it were only the monarchs!
    As it is well known around here, a majority of US Congress members arrive as regular citizens and leave as millionaires.

  4. This contains a very interesting thought on aristocracy and demagoguery, “personification of their inadequacies reversed and represented in what they then regard as aristocracy.” There is a natural basis, though, of aristocracy, even while the actual manifestation of natural aristoi is rare as to be almost not worth considering for the purposes of practical politics. “In every boy there is a prince, and in every girl, a princess” is one way this has been stated. The knights of the round table really are the best, both in their natures and their martial training, and the protection of the people from those who excel in crime, as well as from common brutality, depends upon the knights
