Dear Emperor Alvin,

How is 2046? I see The Hagios Empire is set up nicely. I love what you have done with the world, I mean who would have thought that Africa could become the most developed continent?

However, Liberals believe that humans should be rewarded according to their talents and willingness to work (Heywood, 2012). Liberals are divided into two main parties; the classic Liberals and the modern Liberals. One main difference between the two is that, the former believes in negative freedom (absence of restraints), while the latter prefers positive freedom (freedom to develop as one wishes). Knowing you, I am very sure you are yawning by now.

You may ask, why Liberalism? My belief in Liberalism is based on my age-old belief in The Way. You know the Way, right? Remember “I am the way and the truth and the life…” (John, 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011). I believe there is one right way of doing things, and I believe that, the rig...
