“I was once a great king!”

“I once was a great king!” The preceding sentiments are those of Loki the brother of Thor and one of the Avengers’ most dangerous arch enemies. But I believe almost every one of us harbor these feelings deep down inside. We were all kings and queens once. The first couple years of our lives were nothing more than experiences of people waiting on us hand and foot. Our parents were at our mercy answering every beck and call for fear they would have to face our wrath. All was as it should have been and the only way things could be as far as we were concerned. But one day all of that changed.

When we reached the age of two it was suddenly decided that the world didn’t revolve around only us. This bitter pill was gradually forced down our throat by our once loyal servants suddenly teaching us lessons about sharing and using the words ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. Like every dictator struggling to hold on to his kingdom in the face of modern ideologies we capitulated. We made compromises and concessions until finally our once absolutely ruled kingdom was unrecognizable. The only remnant being that of a distant memory of our majestic reign. In most people even this memory is forgotten but I believe it never really goes away. It lies dormant waiting for the right catalyst to awaken this desire for greatness.

My new book ‘Metaphysical Man The Don Quijote Of The Digital Age’ promises to reawaken that long lost feeling of greatness in you. Reading the book will give you an opportunity to finally examine the legitimacy of the following questions and allow you to come to your own conclusion. Am I destined for greatness? If given the opportunity could I really change the world?

My name is William Chasterson. I’m a writer and a student of history. I was raised in the Midwest of the United States in a very conservative town of about 15,000 people. In my twenties I moved to New York which is where I’ve been for the past 15 years. After the first few years of culture shock I was finally able to settle into my environment and actually consider myself a New Yorker. For the past year however I’ve been living in the third world. I’m not going to mention the name of the country I moved to both for my own safety and because this is not a political blog. The purpose of this blog is to analyze the human psyche and to develop a theory I’ve been slowly formulating my entire life which is that we are all the same. No matter our race, gender, language, or economic status we are all of us equals. While this idea sounds cliche most people’s actions indicate that they don’t really believe it.
