Louis the 14th thought “The State” was a person. HIM! He rationalized going after other countries and staked his claim to prevent this from happening to France. Louis the 14th acted for France because Louis thought he was France, because they were one in the same by Divine Right. And that a person either asserted himself or would be subjugated to the will of others.
Louis XIV (14th) King of France
Louis XIV, known as Louis the Great or the Sun King, was a monarch of the House of Bourbon who reigned as King of France from 1643 until his death in 1715. Starting at the age of 4, his reign of 72 years and 110 days is the longest recorded of any monarch of a sovereign country in European history.
In the age of absolutism in Europe, Louis XIV’s France was a leader in the growing centralization of power.
During Louis’ reign, France was the leading European power, and it fought three major wars: the Franco-Dutch War, the War of the League of Augsburg, and the War of the Spanish Succession. There were also two lesser conflicts: the War of Devolution and the War of the Reunions. Warfare defined the foreign policy of Louis XIV, and his personality shaped his approach. Impelled “by a mix of commerce, revenge, and pique”, Louis sensed that warfare was the ideal way to enhance his glory. In peacetime he concentrated on preparing for the next war. He taught his diplomats that their job was to create tactical and strategic advantages for the French military.
It is still a dog eat dog world of the rich and powerful.

“Nobel Power” We have men with a lust for power, who would turn the world upside down. Those men don’t care about “tradition” and the “natural order” of society. “Nobel Power” according to AG Sessions is ordained by God Himself. In another words they exist to rule. Only those in power seeking to keep the rest of the “common folk” under control would use some quote from the bible to maintain the illusion of the God Given Right to Rule excuse for their hideous behavior.
