Genesis, the beginning, the Old Testament. When the Israelites were beginning, your were either an Israelite or you were nothing. If you were nothing, you didn’t matter. You’re worth was dependent on your family, your blood. Today Royalty is determined in the same fashion. Royalty due to family or royalty due to circumstance. The more you can prove your bloodline of victimhood, the greater your chances of pity.
Pity is profitable, pity is monetarily rewarded. Pity, above all is desired. If only the royals and the victims matter, what happens to everyone else in the middle? The middle class let’s say. You no longer matter, your blood is inconsequential.
Royalty continues to be determined by blood and ancestors.
The Old Testament remains the indicator of behavior. Stagnation, not evolution.
