Wouldn't it be great if YOU were in charge of everything? You could fix the world! ... Well, maybe. ... Maybe not.

You will NOT gain a following by spamming the comments of unrelated posts. Go to the art tab and engage in real conversations with the people there.

I think maybe it's related in the fact that it's a picture of a noble, and this post is about becoming King. When I shared this post to FB, it used the pic for some reason. On that account, I was okay with this. It's a good picture.

Great video. My stepdad and I talk about this all the time. The current democracy currently, which really isn't versus when we had a monarchy. Reality is, back than taxes were basically a 3rd, (33%). Today our taxes are in excess of 50-60 or more %, and majority of the issues we all would veto, as the money is spent in the wrong places, while increasing the government. Not to mention many kings would not be allowed to make laws that never should be entered, hence why many politicians have big corporations fund them, as they are on their payroll. Something has to give, as almost every nation is in debt and central banks and politicians are running on fumes. The future is interesting yet a bit scary at the same time @larkenrose!

We could certainly improve America , the world and our society greatly if we repealed our prohibitions of drugs and gun control laws that were designed and function to disenfranchise segments of our population.

I remember the first time I saw this was on the Peace Revolution podcast- It's a brilliant piece and really illustrates the ludicrous and immoral thing called statism.

Hi Larken; good post!
When I am wisely appointed king, my only 2 agenda items will be to:

  1. dismantle the existing power structure from within,
  2. quit.
    In that order.

I think the point is that without the people coming to the understanding of anarchy, dismantling any power structure will be ineffective, as the locals will only create another to replace it.

I disagree with your Video,

  1. If you have unlimited power, you are not threatend by a lack of "Money", because if you have the power, you could create a new currency or esablish communism for this reason
  2. i would never make somebody life healthy, because, as a liberal, i say, you should do whatever you like, you could support those, who want to get healthier, by making gyms free or lowering the cost of vegetables
  3. in my opinion this is a pretty one sided view, which just the money aspect is highlighted, which can be dealt with in different ways

So you create a new currency. And no one uses it (because no one would). Then what? (As a "liberal," I know why you don't like the video. The truth hurts.)

  1. Sry for not replying that long, i just didnt get any notification for that ... i just stumbled across it for i cant tell what reason.
  2. creating new currency would work, because it worked in the past, e.g. €,$, even the Steemit Dollar is a new Currency witch is used in many aspects of our life.
  3. i have a lot of faith in the market and with enough people supporting the ideas i have, the market would follow the lead of the mass and my aims would be achived.
  4. Im sorry if i didnt say that, but you actually have to be supportet or your whole system will collabse...
