Serf or Lord

Which would you be if you lived on the Island of Sark?
The small Island has been in the news lately. They are deciding whether or not they will become a democracy.
I don't know why but I find this place fascinating. There are only around 500 people that live there and no cars. Sounds like a paradise. Other than the fact if your family were serfs 300 years ago you are still one today. I'm not judging as as long as there are no swords thrown at someone by a watery tart to signify lordship more power to 'em!

Are you trying to say that it's good to be King?

Not sure I like the idea of any monarchy. Most people are flawed, and would you really want all the authority in one place? I'd take our corrupt, bent, bureaucratic democracy any day. It's only screwed up because our nations sleep instead of doing something. But if we wanted to do something, we could. Not in a monarchy.

I wouldn't want to be part of a true feudal society but I find this little island interesting.
