This fact has been always proven by history that laymen and public always suffered under the rule of kings and dictators as they want to establish authority over others and wanted to have a hereditary succession and never wanted outsiders to have control on decisive and administrative powers of the country. According to (Paine), “When a king wore out with age and infirmity enters the last stage of human weakness. In both these cases, the public becomes a prey to every miscreant who can tamper successfully with the follies either of age or infancy”. Shockingly, this is a pathetic state where people get subjected to the poor ruling skills of an old and weakened king. The government needs to reflect equality in nature. A republican government is the right of the people, and it gives them the power to alter the government at a time when change is required for the betterment of the country and people. Only a republican government can work according to the voice of the common men. There should not be much dependence by people on the authorities of the country for their survival; instead, the government should be working on the will and decision of the public.“We have boasted the protection of Great Britain, without considering, that her motive was INTEREST not ATTACHMENT; and that she did not protect us from OUR ENEMIES on OUR ACCOUNT; but from HER ENEMIES on HER OWN ACCOUNT”. Common Sense by Thomas Paine.
