    He who has ears..let him hear a Moldbugist parable..

    What if we wanted to create a class of nobles in America?

    Make it hereditary. A class more bound by hereditary than any European institution ever was. A noble adopted by commoners remains noble but a commoner adopted by nobles remains common. The blood is so powerful that even being 1/2 noble entitles you to all noble privileges and immunities..

    Nobility always has the disadvantage of ruling over a much larger class which may develop resentments. In order to retain power special privileges must be introduced.

    Such as...in any conflict between a noble and a commoner the commoner is always presumed to be in the wrong. If a noble attacks a commoner the presumption is the commoner provoked him. Any pattern of noble attacks on commoners will indicate a problem with commoner attitudes which should be addressed through re-education.
    Nobles may be wrong occasionally of course..but the law will be careful here in their presumptions of noble innocence. Better that ten guilty nobles go free than there be a stain on the class of nobles in a common mind.

    A commoner risks life and limb if caught in a noble neighborhood but a noble may walk any neighborhood he desires. Asymmetrical privileges are important to this system.
    Also, people will discouraged from acknowledging this fact publicly and required to pretend that all neighborhoods are equally accessible. Any attempt to define or mark out noble neighborhoods will be mercilessly suppressed. Commoners will have to simply be careful where they find themselves after dark. It will be good for their humility and ensure an obsequious attitude at ALL times.

    Nobles may form networks based on their class but commoners are forbidden to do so. Churches, schools, entertainment networks...these may be reserved for nobles. Legal organizations will be set up to attack any commoner organization and funded richly from the public purse. This way the larger mass of commoners can never plot to overthrow the nobles. A reasonable safeguard!

    Business will be required to always hire the noble over the commoner. Commoner run businesses are considered too stupid to detect the superior qualities of nobles...which may not be obvious. And if nobles appear less qualified for any position then, again, it is the fault of commoner presumptions and limitations. How could a commoner test a noble with a common test? Ludicrous!

    And also as regards to the workplace...no commoner resistance will be allowed there especially. A worker who expresses contempt or is insolent to a noble will be fired and an example made of him to other employees lest they stray or harbor insolent thoughts about nobles as well.
    A nice consequence of this policy will be a tendency for nobles to rise in the ranks since any conflict with them will almost always be resolved in their favor.
    Small groups of nobles will be consulted at every business decision in order to ensure that nobles benefit.

    In government as well noble leadership will be encouraged. Only nobles may represent nobles. How could it be otherwise?
    And a portion of seats and positions in government will always be reserved for them. For instance some seats on the Supreme Court will be designated as "noble seats" and no commoner may fill them.
    Commoners may be represented by nobles of course. In fact it is encouraged. And,as a generous concession, commoners may be allowed to represent commoners...but only if their councils and parties have noble representatives helping guide them.

    No.

    The statement in the Declaration of Independence, that “…all men are created equal…”, is an explicit rejection of the European tradition of “nobility”, which holds that some people are better than others just because of the families into which they are born. The very idea of a hereditary noble class is anti-American.

    Exactly the point.

    Too bad it’s reality.

    Okay, but we have to find a family with a bad teeth gene and a fondness for lousy food for our nobility.

    This post was moved from politics. I can’t imagine anything more political than discussion the establishment of a new ruling class.

    But if it has to be moved why not to satire at the very least?

    That family has had a centuries long run teeth or no teeth. And while they did their little island become the most prosperous in the world. They must have been doing something right.

    America has it's 'noble class' . Like to meet them?

    watch this>



    They literally own more of this country than commoners, as well as own Congress and anything legislated, the Military and whatever wars they want, the Media and what we're told to parrot

    Us 'commoners' live under an illusion of constitutional equality , while creating deep state conspiracies when it seems like it's not workin' out

    Nobility is never defined by wealth.

    The media tried it almost sixty years ago with "Camelot".
