** The nature of power, how it is earned and exercised, and how much of it is really illusory.

** The nature of war and the struggle for existence, what men will do to survive and the price they pay for it.
** And finally, the power of Truth, which is the core theme that underlies them all. Truth and honesty set men free: an order built on untruth makes men miserable and will fail, one built on truth makes men glad and will endure.

** And as WordOfGod said originally, is it possible to be a good person and a good ruler? What does it mean to take a moral stance politically or try to govern in a way that people believe is right by their morality?
