    If you were King, and there was a village that refused to comply with your vision for a perfect country, would you:
    A. put a stranglehold on all the citizens in that village?
    B. constantly, gently, move them toward compliance, for their own good?
    C. concede to the village, and it's contrary policies, and make it the strongest village in your country?

    I'd bulldoze the village down and build a castle there.

    It would depend on what I was asking for. if it was vital for the defense of the realm, I would probably force them to comply. (Hey, this is a Monarchy right?)

    If it was to get them to improve something or discontinue a undesirable practice, i would choose B.

    I'd tell them that I was King. I won. Now go sit in the back of the bus.
