You know, I've been pretty quiet about whether or not I think we
should form a principality, but I think there is something we need to
see realistically in order to go forward.
When Ansteorra was new, the idea of forming principalities was met
with a highly negative response. However, as the kingdom grew and
the regions grew, opinions changed. This growth brought with it
denser more active populations and a genuine need for more localized
leadership. In fact, most of our principalities and kingdoms have
been born largely out of that need (political differences aside).
My point is this: Of course we love our kingdom and we don't want to
form a principality to split with it. We would, in fact, need the
support of our kingdom to grow healthy and strong. However, we must
not miss out on the truth that to succeed as a principality might
mean growing up to be our own kingdom someday (granted, because of the
small population base of Oklahoma, this would probably take a long
I just felt this should be considered, since everybody has been so
quick to say that we shouldn't think of becoming our own kingdom....
