The Rules for Rulers

In roaming YouTube the other day I came across this wonderfully simple and cynical look at political power and how to hold it.  A fine topic for a Sunday.

I initially clicked on it because I thought the author was “CCP Grey” and it had something to do with EVE Online.  While it may actually not relate directly to New Eden, it is still worth a watch. (I’d like to see somebody examine the keys to power in null sec empires though.)

The author has a number of other interesting videos also delivered in a soothing, well modulated tone.

    Yeah, I like CGP Grey. I wish he’d not slowed down so much on his video releases. I really like his bizarre borders and his “The Star Trek Transporter is a Murder Box!” ones as well.

    Ooh, I’m surprised you weren’t aware of CGP Grey…

    So, completely unasked for, but here are the links to some other YouTube channels that I feel are ‘like’ CGP Grey and in general I feel they are pretty great :) Maybe it’ll be helpful — although you probably know about at least some of them already.
