If I may, permit me to add a few comments that might possibly be of interest.
I no longer feel any obligation to prove anything to anyone. I also no longer apologize for raising an unpopular position. Things will just have to be what they are.
As sovereigns, of course any sovereign is free to act as they see fit so my own preferences are not at directing others as to how to conduct themselves.
However, on my own behalf, since the major task up front is asserting one’s authority over one’s public servants one must begin with an attitude. An attitude of asserting ones authority.
Certainly that means continuing to display the proper respect and civility towards any public servants as one would extend to any other fellow sovereign. But when someone takes on the responsibility of being a sovereign, they must also assume the responsibility of acting the part.
