Governments and Politics II
“When I was a young child, my brothers, friends, and I would play a very interesting and fun game. We would stand at the bottom of a small hill and compete for the top of it. We would push others down, until one remained on top. Then he would have to defend himself from all those who tried to knock him down and stay at the top of the hill. It was a great game, rough but friendly, difficult but rewarding.
Now I see we were unknowingly preparing for our future struggle. As we grew up, we played the same game for the leadership of the tribe. Now, instead of fighting for the top of a hill, we fought for a chair, a position. We did not push each other, but we did manipulate each other. We formed alliances, gained support of the people, verbally fought each other, and sometimes even used our blades. Some of my brothers and friends became enemies in this rough and merciless game. And there was only one winner. The rest were either dead or disgraced. It was difficult, but rewarding. I won that game.
Unfortunately, all life must come to an end, and I fear mine is right on its last moments. I already sense the game setting up. Once my life ends the game shall begin again. My son, your family, your people, and your father depend on you to win this game. It will be a tough journey, where blood will be spilled, honor and grace might be lost, and words will become swords. But if you stay strong you will overcome and reach the top of the hill. You will be bathed in glory and power, respect and honor. My son, I ask you, will you fight for your name? Will you become the most powerful man? Will you lead your people to glory, and build a civilization that will stand the test of time? Do you accept this--”
The old chief gave a long sigh. His eyes closed and his hand fell to his chest. He never heard the answer of his son.
-The last breath of the Ancestral Chief
The Ancestral chief's son had to make a decision. The time has come to make your decision. Do you accept his challenge? Will you carry the burden of your family and people, and be remembered until the end of time?
