... and this is how it came to be

The others who had begun to live amongst the people of the benevolent kingdom continued to study and take courses and read the books of their rulers and leaders. Their rulers and leaders, remaining outside of the benevolent kingdom, although the kingdom had no walls, continued their writings to and education of their ambassadors en mass1.

And with a steady stream of guidance, the others continued to demonstrate dedication to their cause. They amassed degrees, built buildings, and obtained positions of respect among themselves and among the citizens of the benevolent kingdom. And it was not long before they were the envy of the kingdom. The others had favor and influence within the kingdom,. But they were homesick and began to speak of how things used to be in their native lands.

And so it was that after hearing of the great rulers and leaders without the kingdom, the citizens of the benevolent kingdom petitioned the benevolent king that they too might be under the tutelage of rulers and leaders2. The benevolent king, knowing the end from the beginning 3, cautioned them that none other than He were suited to rule and lead them, and that others would be led astray and follow the practices of others. In time the rulers and leaders would amass for themselves riches at the expense of the people. Their daughters and sons would be taken for service of the rulers and leaders to till their grounds and reap their harvests, and make their instruments of war-- their young men and women would exist wholly to serve the rulers and leaders.

And it was as the king had told them, but at the time they would not consider it and they received their rulers and leaders.

The others had great impact on the citizens of the kingdom and their overall operations and thoughts. Good became bad; debt became riches; their best young men and women became diligent followers of the others; and the systems they built to prosper and regulate and protect were all supported by the wisdom of the Royals of society. The Royals were th elite of society who had not only completed all of the corse work available from the rulers and leaders of the others, but had further completed their course work at and obtained their degrees from the best or correct institutions (It was not always possible to tell whether the institutions were best or correct.). All began to devote precious time and resources to the maintenance of the systems they had made while the creation groaned 4 .

And so as time passed all began to affect the character traits of the others as the others began to surface likenesses similar to the citizens of the kingdom. To observers there was no difference between them. And the citizens of the kingdom began to spend less and less time with their king. It became the common thought that all born within the kingdom were citizens, forgetting that the kingdom had no walls or physical borders of any kind.



1 Samuel 8:9-22 (KJV) Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and show them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.  {10} And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king. {11} And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. {12} And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. {13} And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. {14} And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. {15} And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. {16} And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. {17} He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants. {18} And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day. {19} Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us; {20} That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles. {21} And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD. {22} And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.
