Do you need a master?
First of all, there will be a ruler, period. What kind of a ruler do *you* want? I want an Emperor. It doesn't mean that he will be my master. I mean, he will be my Emperor, who will take care of matters of the country, so people can live freely and prosperously. If he is good, he will be my role model, too. But master? No.
Secondly, people are not created equal. Just look around, I think you can agree with that. People are born with different talents. People are not equal, and should not be compared with one another. How can we say which gift is superior? All gifts are special, all people are special, but they are not equal. It's a mistake to compare people.
If you think you don't have a "master" now (by the way you are using the term) you should think again. ...You have to work from 8 to 5, and you have to pay bills to survive. You can't do what you want. Don't you feel like a slave?
It's a messed up system. I think the world was more free 200 years ago.
Anyway, it doesn't matter what system of government you have. It only matters the personality and character of the ruling person or group of people....So you can have a bad Emperor as well. But I think it's nice that if you have a good ruler, you have someone you can admire. I really admire certain Emperors of Old China. Democracy doesn't work, because the citizens are too busy with their own jobs, they aren't concentrated to the matters of the country. So how can they know what is best, right? They don't have all the information, they haven't done the research. People are delegated specialized jobs. The citizens have their own jobs, too, that they are better at. So people should do what they are good at. I think true Emperors who can do their job well are most fit to rule countries.
If you lived through a time when Chinese civilization was flourishing, you would understand how good a good Emperor can be. And there would be none of this nonsense "do you want a master?" BS.
