Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you.

Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you.

If I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.

However, given the current state of politics, I'm willing to consider alternatives to democracy.
