You argued against him using your own definition/interpretation of "a ****ing game"
I can call everything in life a game but I would be distracting from the point and sentiment TSA tried to get across that you so blatantly manipulated.
Oh and "common occurance" does not mean absolute. Unless you wish to retract the use of the word "every"
Going with the original sentiment:
The ascendency to power in a monarchy is hereditary, no showmanship or manipulation is required.
Enacting policy in a monarchy does not require manipulation or showmanship as there is no favor to be won as a means of passing said policy.
There now we can put that to bed. If you want to talk about the need to maintain public favor in the context you are dealing with, have at it.
