How political systems operate

1.  How feudalism works.

A large landowner controls the destiny of everyone within the area.  Their relationship to the landowner determines their economic prospects and the landowner can at whim replace them if appropriate obligations to the landowner are not satisfied.

A large landowner controls the destiny of lots of people within the area.  Their relationship to the landowner determines their economic prospects and the landowner can at whim scupper those propsects if what the landowner feels are appropriate obligations are not satisfied
