Allegiance is not obedience

“Allegiance leaves you with free will and judgment. Allegiance is open to interpretation. Obedience to a man is slavery!”

Soul Marked y C. Gockel



P: “Isn’t in your power to refuse? How can anyone force you to do anything?”

K: “He is the King. And you’re a fool, too, if you think I have a choice in the matter”. 

P: “But you do have a choice. He’s not the one who makes you savage. You make yourself savage, when you bend yourself to his will”.
