The Royal Virus (Perfidious Albion)In the early stages of civilization, long before Christianity came onto the scene, even before the time of the Hebrew Kings, one of the longest surviving history books, the Bible, tells us about an aging prophet, named Samuel. The historic tale about this prophet is centred on the question as to who should succeed him to rule over the people. It seemed natural, therefore, that the demand was made on Samuel: "Give us a king." This, although, displeased the aging prophet. Still, as the story is recorded in ancient scripts (I. Sam 8:7-19) his God 'said' unto him, "Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them... howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and show them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.... And Samuel told all the 'words of the Lord' unto the people that asked of him a king. And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. And he will take your daughters to be confectioneries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants. And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you.... Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us."
