The Fool King

n the beginning of the Republic,  the people governed themselves, and elected men to pass laws and to do the will of the people.  It was designed, from the beginning, that the nation, having hard fought a long and bloody conflict and now free from the Tyrant King George and his armies, should no longer be a nation of one man's whim, but of laws.

2.  Although the young nation was imperfect in implementation of the notion that all men are created equal, and more wars would be fought to make all men equal, some violent, and some peaceful, many more people came from the far flung places in the world to make the Republic their home, and the Republic grew into a mighty nation, loved by the people, but feared by tyrants, for in the Republic, the people did govern themselves.

3.  But slowly, evil men, calling themselves Progressives, with their evil ideas crept into high places, and they passed evil laws.

4.  And they taught their evil ideas in the schools and in the universities, and as a result, the people grew fat and lazy.  And they did not govern themselves with rigid self-control, but became lawless, doing that which was right in their own eyes, and not that which was good and lawful.

5.  And the nation, which was Christian in its infancy, was now corrupt and filled with unbelief, and forgetfulness.

6.  And the people waxed cold, and grew slothful, and became like spoiled children, who demanded to be pampered and fed, and entertained, as did Rome of ancient times, and so their judges and  rulers, who came from within their midst, were very like them, to the detriment of all.

7.  Now it came to pass, that in the Two Hundred and Thirty-Second year of the Republic, the people, tired of the Wars Against Allah and his prophet, may he thirst evermore in the presence of the Living Water, and may he famish evermore in the presence of the Bread of Life,  did raise up from their midst a ruler who was untried in battle.

8.  And so he had no understanding of war and neither had he understanding of warriors. He was a ruler who had never ruled, nor did he understand business,  but was corrupt within and without, who sent violent thugs to enforce his bidding, for he was but was a fool who spouted nonsense that tickled the ears of the slow-witted people, and they, being easily duped and dazzled, did make him King and Ruler of all.

9.  The Fool King had no sooner come into power, that he began to meddle in affairs that did not concern him, and because the people feared him, they did not prevent him from stealing that which was not his, nor did they try to stop him when he flouted the laws and did that which was utterly despicable.

10.  The Senate came together and voted to restrain the Fool King,  who wanted to let free some violent Sons of Allah and the prophet, who breathes evermore through his bung hole in the dung heap of the damned,  who were waging a war against all humanity in a most despicable manner, for they would hide in the midst of people unawares, and when the soldiers came to hunt them would kill both innocent and guilty alike, and these same evil warriors would turn themselves into weapons of fire and death, and kill many more innocent.

11.  And so the former ruler, seeing how dangerous these vile creatures were, vowed to end their reign of terror, and captured many of them.  And they were sent across the wide sea to an island, where they were kept in a prison that was built for them.

12.  But the Fool King, who despised the former ruler, decided that he could do anything he wanted,  and assembled the Congress and the Senate and gathered the Soothsayers and Manipulators of Perception, and told them he would let the Sons of Allah and the prophet, who is covered in honey and devoured forever by the beasts of Hell, into the republic.  

13.  And so, came to an end of the Law in the Republic, and the people will be punished accordingly, for having elected for themselves a Fool King who had no wisdom.  And that is how the Eternal gave them up to do that which they thought was right in their own eyes, and this is how He punishes those who reject Wisdom and Law and Truth, and embrace folly.
