The velvet cloth, rough fur, gold and iron from the third world makes our necklaces and jewelry all captivating. Are we not kings or nobles? No, our roles are not to affect the common man but as the Ides of Winter arrives and our king is beheaded, we are beheaded ourselves. Stripped down of our possessions, we are no longer an upper class but a common serf. But the Estates, the Jacobins, and the Directory all play our games, they just preach a different tone.
