No matter what country you look to in the world, they are all run by people who live in palaces–not among the people, but instead served by them in a hierarchical structure.
And so when you look at the one or the other and say, “This one is better than that one,” we can’t help but see the great equalizer among them all being that there is such a gulf between the “haves” and “have-nots.”
It is of no consequence to us that the ruler might be female versus male, or Black or Brown versus white, or from my area versus somewhere else when we have no desire to be ruled in this way by anyone.
So tell us, do you prefer your
rulers leaders to be the same gender, race, religion, nationality, etc. as you?
