This spicy cartoon is from The magician of Id – a standard daily newspaper comic strip created by Brant Parker and Johnny Hart in 1964 come satirize modern American society and politics. The strip deals with the goings-on of the rundown and oppressed shabby kingdom dubbed “Id”. It largely concentrates ~ above the court of a tyrannical, dwarfish monarch well-known only as “the King” which refers to his subjects as “Idiots”. In some strips the king is chosen to his monarchial place (albeit through rigged ballots). The king likewise run one inept army perpetually at war v “the Huns”, while the unhappy, overtaxed peasants (or Idiots) make little money together farmers and stablehands to save modest living.

You are watching: He who holds the gold makes the rules

PS: Jean-Jacques Rousseau said this before.
