An interesting observation. The symbol on the banners is that of the English Socialist Party (The real version of INGSOC) and note all the keys seem to have a brittish look about them. Makes one go HMMMM???

It doesn't sting.  These facts are well known.  It may shatter the illusions of some.

In short:

  1. Absolute power corrupts, absolutely
  2. The servants of the righteous must be as righteous as their masters
  3. Vetinari is a genius

punko I always enjoy videos of social structure and order. It may be well known, but by fewer than you think. Do you read any Chomsky?

theman01 Nothing of the sort.  Chomsky had great things to say in political issues, but I've only read references to his work - not his work directly.  My reference was toward Pratchett who's work both references and satirises our own world in such a way to make the point and provide humour at the same time.
