Jack says all civilizations suffer, everybody hurts, etc. I would like to know if in his opinion monarchs do indeed suffer throughout history like commoners do. I donít believe they do, for example Henry VIII, and I could go on and on, but what is readily apparent is that not everyone is destined to suffer from common ills such as lack of capital, opportunity, loneliness, AIDS, etc. For some are born into privilege, and by privilege I donít mean white, but into a bloodline; with its own set of rules and expectations; a life of leisure, wealth, culture, and high society. Barring Certain obligations such as who to marry and who to fuck, it doesnít seem like a bad deal.
To this day, we still have Kings and Queens, and for the most part, it is safe to say, the Greeks were right when they posited that Monarchy was the only system of rule that worked throughout the ages.
I loved the crown.
