Yesterday a man called Charles in Great Britain paid for one of the most lavish and expensive parties of all time to have the people around him call him “king”. Never mind that “king” is as made up as the Easter Bunny and at this point in time his new title won’t have any actual value or meaning to the other inhabitants of the country. He paid for a truckload of media attention, the affair lasted hours and filled the streets for miles. For a few brief hours you had people as important as prime ministers talking about something as imaginary and unimportant as Superman.
There were two kinds of people in attendance. Those who were paid to be there, like priests, pastors, bishops, magistrates, various politicians and civil servants, press people, handlers, costume designers, most dressed up in the most ridiculous costumes that looked right out of Alice in Wonderland — all there to lend legitimacy to the ridiculous claims being made. Then there were the masses. Some well known and successful, most not so much. They just wanted to be at the party. Or get a glimpse of it.
Manmade things tend to come and go in human societies, based slightly on the mood of the people, and more impactfully the power of whoever’s in control at the time, and the willingness to wield that power, to perpetuate the myths that keep these ideas in circulation. Marvel Comics superheroes are an example of the first. People who walk around calling themselves royal are an example of the latter.
The most important thing to understand about what some call “royalty” is that it isn’t real. It’s as unreal and manmade as Santa Clause and the Tooth Fairy. It doesn’t matter that millions of people say they believe in it… unlike facts… people, places, things, scientific realities, etc., royalty does not actually exist. As with any other manmade things, royalty only exists for as long as other people decide to go along with it.
If you have any doubt, run it by the Alien Test. If a being from another planet that was more intelligent than our’s visited earth, there’d come a time when they’d want to understand everything about us and our home. Perhaps we’d even explain some of it to them. Though I doubt it. They’d view and handle us the same way we view and handle insects or animals. For the most part, earth and the various living beings that inhabit it would be easy to understand within hours to this alien. He’d collect and categorize data about the natural elements that exist here, how much water, oxygen and hydrogen there was, the force of gravitational pull and solar rays would be measured, anything remarkable or useful about the living organisms, humans being one of them. Most importantly the alien would be looking for real data about real things that have value of some kind.
At no time would this alien ever be able to understand or be talked into understanding this idea that humans call “royalty”. There are plenty of human beings the alien would probably have an interest in or at least find real and valuable enough to sort and categorize. Scientists, those with special abilities like athletes or musicians, maybe the best of the best thinkers… Politicians of only the highest order — presidents and prime ministers — would be sorted, but viewed as nothing more than a means to communicate to the masses of living organisms and to keep the peace during his exploration. He would not care what they had to say.
Those labeled “royalty” by themselves and others would not be given a second thought. No data collected. Nothing to learn. Nothing to categorize. They would not be separated from the pack of billions of other humans.
The Alien Test is always a good go-to to ascertain the reality or importance of something.
The ideas surrounding royalty have only been around for a few thousand years, and though not based in reality and completely manmade, are forced upon a people through a variety of different means. This would be a good launching point to discuss indoctrination and mind control to explain how small groups of humans are able to control large masses of millions of people.
At its essence, when broken down to its core for ease of understanding, “royalty” implies two things: one who possesses the most wealth (of whichever assets and currency are most valuable at the time, in that region of the world), and one who possesses the most power… power to control the most people, power to pass and veto the very laws that govern whole countries or empires, power to influence the most people of wealth and influence, and power to inspire the most fear.
These are the makings of king, queen, prince, princess, et al. All made up words that in reality refer to nothing real except the people who refer to themselves with these labels. The people are real, sure. The labels are not. People have just been talked into believing they are.
People ask me all the time how we can claim royalty is not real after they just witnessed some so called queen die or a guy who calls himself a “prince” gallivanting through California with a Hollywood actress promoting a tell-all book. “They’re real people,” they proclaim. And yes of course they are real people. And yes they refer to themselves as being “royal” and hope others do too. But it’s a myth they made up. It’s fairytale. The more people go along with it, the more real it seems to become. But it never becomes real like gravity, or heart disease, or radiowaves or chimpanzees.
You or I could walk around starting today demanding everyone call us the Hope Saviors. And I guarantee you nobody is going to do it. It’s going to be pretty obvious that we made it up. But what if we had a vast fortune and we paid for hundreds of press releases to be announced as “news” every day around the world about us? Yes then people would actually start to walk around talking about the Hope Saviors. We could easily become “something”, because human beings can be talked into just about anything if you keep telling them to. But it wouldn’t be perceived as being real. It would still just be a name we gave ourselves.
But within months they’d start to pay us millions of dollars to make public appearances, be guest stars on their TV shows, endorse their products. Hope Saviors would be a thing. That’s how easy it is to make something up completely from scratch and get everybody to start referring to it as if it’s real.
After that we could go deeper into the myth making. We could say we were descended from great gods from other solar systems. We would need no proof. People would automatically start talking about it and accept it as reality. There are plenty of “gods” right now who don’t exist but modern humans claim are real. The key is, and this might be one of the most important points of the matter, it isn’t difficult to brainwash a whole people into believing whatever you want them to. But it does take time. And money. And the threat of force and harm.
Getting back to so called royalty, they started to perpetuate similar myth making regarding gods early on in their creation of the idea of royalty. But “gods” too were a fairly new manmade concept. So they could be equally played with and manipulated.
Because of these so called “royal people” possessing such vast sums of wealth and power collected through the millennia they took to equating themselves with imaginary “gods” and “goddesses” that were invisible but lived way up high in the skies in order to further confuse and confound simpler people and inspire even more obedience and fear. It’s one thing to declare one’s agency and sovereign rights and disobey someone who calls themselves a king or shah or pharaoh or emperor. It’s another thing to disobey a “god”. This was the idea. They could also attribute magical powers to these gods and claim they would harm or torture you in an imaginary afterlife if you didn’t obey the king. Crafty.
Many of these manmade ideas still hold sway over the hearts and minds of modern peoples in todays world. They haunt and disturb them. It’s a harmful practice, perpetuating these ideas for some selfish personal or organizational gain; gaslighting at the extreme.
In the early days, the first kings — those from the Mesopotamian region of the world and later the Middle East, took it one step further and chose to declare that they themselves were gods and goddesses. Human on the outside, but a “god” on the inside. They’d throw around the word “divine”, another manmade concept.
When the world sped ahead of these primitive ideas of “human gods” who call themselves “royal”, these self described royals began to tone down the fairytales and instead started going with the idea that they were put into their position of power by “divine mandate” i.e. an invisible god or goddess demanded that they and only they should be the “king” or “Queen”. An equally unrealistic and ridiculous idea. But plenty of people still fall for it.
And what did they mean by that exactly? They meant that they were in charge. Of everything. Even the modern so called royal family of Great Britain still abides by this belief and expects the millions of the country’s inhabitants to do so as well.
During this guy Charles’s big to-do yesterday in England, he had a variety of different religious guys dressed up in a variety of colorful costumes participating in a whole host of different manmade rituals to conflate the royalty concept with the religious. They weren’t just trying to include religion in the elaborate ceremony. They were deliberately using misleading language and convoluted sentences to conjoin the two, as if royalty and religion were one and the same thing.
Truth be told, they aren’t too far apart. Both were invented by ambitious humans, lustful for wealth, power and control in outrageous power-grabs. Neither has any basis in fact or reality. Both are the stuff of myths and fairytales. Both’s sole purpose is to gain and control as much wealth, power and influence as possible. Over the last 1500 years, the Catholic religion, which was and is still just a different and more manipulative way of saying Roman Empire, was so interbred with royalty — the pope is a kind of king himself, or king of kings, that it was hard to discern who had more power, the so called pope of the Roman Catholic Church or the so called emperor of the Roman Empire.
The amount of control they’ve wielded in everyday people’s lives through the centuries is shocking. In perhaps the biggest con of all time, religion and royalty are still allowed to exist.
One might ask, how on earth does one measly human get hundreds of thousands or even millions of other humans to believe in such childish non-factual drivel? History answers the question with ease. Through any means necessary.
The very first step usually comes in the form of brute force, violent domination and subjugation. The very first humans who called themselves “king”, those men in Mesopotamia who changed their names to Sargon to symbolize they were “kings” (there was no word for king at the time… Calling yourself “Sargon” had the same meaning) were all able to do so because they killed anyone who got in their way. Once they killed someone, they could then steal their land and assets, which added to their personal fortune. They also could do this to whole villages, kill, enslave those not killed and steal their belongings to increase their fortune.
Eventually words did begin to be invented for these kinds of men. Both the Sumerian words Ensi and Lugal formed in the 3rd or 4th millennia to describe these men who killed raped tortured enslaved and stole enough to be rulers of small areas of land and peoples. The loose translation to English is King. There was also pharaoh and emperor. And so it began.
Eventually men of equal ambition, heartlessness and ignobility rose up from other areas because they wanted what these other men, these so called kings, had. Their goal: kill them, steal what they had and call themselves king. And this goes on up until the present day. Manmade or not, there is absolutely nothing more vile nor more dangerous or deadly in the human species throughout its history than those who call themselves “royal”.
As the idea of “royalty” and its many benefits to the self-named receiver of the title spreads throughout human societies on planet earth, brute force is still the primary manner which is used to obtain said title. They use their stolen wealth to hire soldiers and assassins, amassing whole armies, raiding and pillaging other towns or cities, eventually whole other regions and countries, to kill their so called “royals” or rulers or leaders, and to steal yet more wealth for themselves. This turns into what we now refer to as war. Something very real indeed. By the time they are done, these so called royals possess more of the world’s wealth than anyone on earth. And people will call them anything they demand they do.
Eventually it becomes more complicated and nuanced to stay “royal” for long. After all, everyone wants it, nobody can explain exactly what it is or means because it’s all manmade, so they change the rules all the time. Brute force and domination is still the primary way to get it… you steal it for yourself.
Pretty soon becoming and staying “royal” begins to demand simultaneous assassinations bribes and payoffs in addition to raiding and conquering. Anyone who poses a threat to someone’s claim to rule is killed off, oftentimes their family killed as well. Others who still pose a threat but are almost as strong or powerful in their own right i.e. those who also have large sums of wealth and influence and can thus afford an army of their own, are offered large sums of money that may also come with some meaningless title and some land. This is where we get the ideas of dukes and duchesses, lords and ladies. “The court” as it is called. Manmade and unreal. Just made up crap to justify being a murderous monster or someone who assists a murderous monster. But very “real” in how this imaginary title affects the lives of others.
In this light, one can begin to see that the invention of the idea of royalty is 1, a way to communicate to large masses of people who’s in charge. Who’s in charge equates to who has the means and the lack of character enough to murder a lot of people or do anything else they need to in order to stay in charge, and 2, “royal” is a way to begin to legitimize the ghastly deadly and inhumane things people do to stay in power.
They call themselves “royal”. They say they’re descended from invisible “gods”. They wear elaborate costumes to deliberately stand out and not fit in, as if at a costume party. They invent a large catalogue of manmade legends and myths about what it means to be “royal”… in reality it means they are vastly more evil and wicked than even mass murderers or serial killers, but they take deliberate aims to legitimize their cruelty, murdering and domination of others. They come out into the open as they steal bribe blackmail rape enslave and murder and claim it all as “divine right” to do so… because they’re “royal”.
It’s a fascinating paradox. Society lives by a set of laws which apply to everyone to keep things civil. Except those who call themselves royal. For them these laws don’t apply. Why? Because they’re royal. After a while you begin to see the picture. Royals are known for being as stupid as rocks due to the inbreeding; but the original invention of the idea was a rather ingenious one. Create a way to legitimize the most criminal behavior on earth by the sheer ungodly amassing of wealth through any means necessary, use wealth to pay everybody off, kill whoever gets in your way, bribe or blackmail others, all the while claiming to be doing such by a demand from some invisible god or gods.
At one point, this man Charles who threw the lavish party yesterday to name himself “king”, recites some phrases expressing allegiance to The Church Of England, religion itself being another pillar of this vastly wealthy and corrupt empire, saying something to the effect of “The ways of gentleness and the paths of peace….” which had me laughing out loud uncontrollably, because the United Kingdom, or Great Britain, is one of the most notoriously barbarous, wicked and deadly empires in human history. There hasn’t been anything gentle or peaceful about it since Rome found and conquered it 2000 years ago.
Some may ask, if royalty doesn’t exist, then why am I able to see it? Hear it? Read about it? Watch it on TV? Well that’s the thing… as with many ideas and concepts that are manmade, we can have experiences of such things… and yet at the same time recognize that they aren’t real, are not based in fact. The various manmade religions throughout human history are also seen from this point of view. They come and they go over time, their existence only recognized as it suits the rulers of the world to continue perpetuating the idea. When they, the rulers of the world, are done with said religion, the people are told to stop recognizing it, and it rather quickly fades away, after a generation or two, transforms from ideology to idea to memory to dust.
From such knowledge, we can gather a few truths about what is meant by people who refer to themselves as “royalty”. They are by the very nature of their willingness to do so unabashedly ambitious, competitive, self-serving, greedy, selfish and corrupt. More so they are what we would normally call dark-hearted, primitively evil, barbaric, unwavering in their lust for power at all costs, human or otherwise.
The very title itself exists as a way of acknowledging the deceit, thievery, bribery, extortion, kidnapping, rape, murder, and plundering of such people. Due to the massive wealth that these individuals are able to collect when they abandon all human decency, human values and moral codes, and by the end any human attributes whatsoever, they needed a way to describe and title themselves to distinguish themselves from everyone else in their region.
The so-called British royal family is said to rule over the people of Great Britain, and also the entire so-called United Kingdom. (Granted there isn’t much left of this kingdom left…). In return the people pay approximately $100 million dollars a year to “maintain them” so to speak, though their personal salaries are upwards of $90-100 million per year. Their collected personal wealth is surprisingly low at least by American standards at only $30 billion. But who really knows…?
This current family, the Sax-Coburgs, who occupy the title of “royalty” in Great Britain are Germans. And they’ve ruled Great Britain for over 350 years. They changed their name from Sax-Coburg to Windsor, naming themselves after a Castle, once again to fool the people they ruled over, this time into forgetting they were being ruled by Germans. They chose to do this just before the First World War, since after all that war was being fought against Germany. By that point in history the Germans had ruled over most of europe and its people for over 900 years. Occupying both seats of power of the United Kingdom and the Roman Empire — ever since King Charlemagne was crowned emperor of the Roman Empire.
The fact that an entire “royal” family can just change its name and decree everyone forget their old name and their heritage and start referring to them as another name is amazing really…. But also a sad and shocking testament to just how weak willed and distracted human beings are. And why they are so easily controlled.
There are at present 25 other so called royal families ruling over countries besides Great Britain, the people’s of said countries just as aware of the barbarous histories of these ruling families — the Saud family of Arabia is one of them, and just as aware of how unreal and manmade the concept of “royalty” is. One day in the not too distant future humanity will rid itself of this wretched tradition and create for itself a world composed of regional democracies worldwide where Justice freedom liberty equality and human rights are a given. Royalty will be viewed with as much distaste as slavery or the Inquisition. Hopefully this will be soon.
