I always have disliked arguments of this nature. Yes, we should not be afraid to
use the funds in the Kingdom coffers, but to use them exclusivly is fool hardy
and does not take the best interests of the Kingdom into account. Yes we can use
the funds, but if we wait for an emergency to come up, we risk the possibility
that our own pockets may well be lacking. We would therefore be doing a
disservice to our Kingdom by exclusively using the kingdom funds when we can ask
for donations for 'special' projects and thus save the funds we currently have
for emergencies or leaner times.

If we do not look to our future we may not have one.
