Perhaps this is true only so as long as the one-eyed man leans more toward his opportunistic side than his socially responsible side.

    It seems to me that the real 'king' is unseen and is far from having only one eye. The trick is to keep people's servitude a secret in plain sight. So that whatever they look at, they will 'see' what the king wants them to see. "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is."
