The above phrase is a translation of ego sum rex Romanus, et supra grammaticam, uttered by the Holy Roman Emperor, Sigismund at the Council of constance 1414, to a prelate who criticized his grammar.
First of all, no one is above grammar but what I really want to point out here is how condescending we are as a human sometimes. There are a lot of people out there who always feel superior and do something despite regarding it as below one’s dignity. The very obvious example is the United States of America but again, I am not to talk about US and its military activity whatsoever.
I often meet people who treat other people condescendingly and I think they are far too much. No body is better than everyone else around them and as I always say we all are just the same human being. For example just because you’re a lawyer, it doesn’t mean that you’re better than a bar tender. Maybe the bar tender is not lucky enough as the lawyer to have the opportunity to further his study or he got the opportunity but finance had halted his journey of becoming a lawyer.
This post is not a response to any event of my life but just a reminder for me that there should be no such things as condescension in this world. I hate to see the strong bullying the weak. Aren’t the strong supposed to protect the weak? And what makes me angrier and don’t understand is that the weak is obeying the strong willingly. God, what has the world turn into? The weak is paying the strong some respect even though there’s just a minute difference between them!
