Great article

That was pretty interesting. The moral of the story - if you give people power give them ownership and little incentive to micromanage. Otherwise bad stuff is coming your way

Interesting read and an appealing argument, but I fear that the postulated “king-nobles” equilibrium is unstable, and either one or the other will ultimately win the nth civil war. More thought is needed on how could this balance be kept, but, frankly, as much thought could be spared into making the “king-bureaucracy” balance stick. Just saying.
