Working for a king is NOT working for government. A king inherits a position. No one votes a king into office. Kings in history have acted in a dictatorial fashion, taking over someone’s land, or crop, or ship, or fish, or daughter, or wife, whenever they pleased. If the king feels like going to war and you are a peasant, surprise! You’re now a soldier. You’re old and disabled and don’t want to fight? Off to jail with you.-If the so-called ‘nobles’ set up a Parliament and a king had to work with them, this was still not truly ‘government’, but was more dictatorship, just by a group instead of one guy.-If you work for a king, he can not only dismiss you at will, he can chop your head off if he feels like it. The king is not only ‘above the law’, he IS the law.
