As Londo Molari said, "When the family tree becomes a familly bush, you can't hide as much under it."


The Catholic Church experimented with marriage rules that barred intermarriages out to 4th cousin. I'm guessing it helped a bit but ennobling more commoners would have helped more.

I am well aware of that. You created your new side-tangent starting from my own comment.
The primary question was "Why are the farm animals all gone in this comic?" Not "A study of comparative taxation in known real civilizations vs this imaginary one."
But, too late now. This thread is no longer anywhere near being "on-topic".
Avoid those who speak badly of the people, for such wish to rule over you.
