Stoppard brought his tale back to KINGS AND QUEENS creating the societal conditions for our two characters to be swept into the state of not knowing what to do without being part of a royal production---wars, empire-building, intrigue.
TO UNDERSTAND THE STRATEGIES OF TODAY'S CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA---NOW TRUMP----we need to look at the game of chess-----developed during those old world MERCHANTS OF VENICE AND KINGS AND QUEENS days to cultivate the skills of STRATEGY-----POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC.
The CHESS BOARD has a line of players with the KING AND QUEEN in the middle and BISHOPS on either side the KNIGHTS being the army protecting KINGS AND QUEENS and those rooks----the CASTLES marking KINGDOM---where our secret societies of spies, surveillance, and messengers protect the borders of that KINGDOM. The 99% are represented as PAWNS.
This is the structure brought by REAGAN/CLINTON to what was a US Constitutional sovereign nation with a US Constitution guaranteeing WE THE PEOPLE as legislating and governing our nation. Our chess board has no KINGS AND QUEENS---it has a well-regulated public militia and not KNIGHTS----and our BISHOPS are out in front of WE THE PEOPLE protecting us.
SEE HOW A 5% TO THE 1% RESURFACED---THEY ARE THE ROOKS-----SEE HOW OUR RELIGIOUS LEADERS ARE NOW NEXT TO THE GLOBAL 1% AND NOT WE THE PEOPLE? SEE HOW OUR PUBLIC MILITIA HAS BEEN MADE A GLOBAL MERCENARY CORPORATE MILITARY NOT TIED TO DEFENDING WE THE PEOPLE?
