RE: Pennsic Seneschale's Court and Requirements This Year

Poster: Nicole Smithers <ladyemma@mindspring.com>

My problem isn't the elf ears, the fangs or anything else.  I have a very
method for handling that...  I advocate burning at the stake.    
However, I would like to speak a moment about the continual trend toward a
modern system of control.  I am, at heart, a monarchist.  I believe in the
divine right of Kings.  Due process isn't part of that right if the Kings
says so is.  If you have a problem with an individual there are ways set up
with in our current system to solve that problem.   If you are going to
have a court, have a COURT.  Let the Kings of the East, Middle and
Aethelmearc make decisions.  
Let the monarchs be monarchs for 6 months.  We might get some bad kings,
but only for 6 months.  

Emma of Elandonan


The Phoenicians were not great philosophers... they pondered the simpler
questions, like "If I stick this spear in you, can I take your stuff?",
"Do you have relatives that would be mad if I took your stuff?", and
"Can my relatives beat up your relatives?"
