Storyboard Text

  • Okay boomer.
  • I agree Pericles! Everyone should be able to have higher government status.
  • I don't think you should have to own property to be elected as leaders.
  • Mogli, I'm afraid you won't ever get to rule, as my power is for life.
  • Yeah whatever... I have better things to do, you selfish monarch.
  • Let's turn Democratic!
  • We are now creating the Magna Carta, to help ourselves, and other rich barons.
  • Soon, the Parliament will rule over the king, himself!
  • Wait, I really have to sign this!?
  • Hmm. I was thinking, there should be a social contract. One where the government must have the consent of their subjects.
  • 1678
  • Democracy!
  • Yeah, we really need to have a checks and balances system, and divide the political power.
  • 1732
  • Limit the power!
  • Well, now we have these rules set to make sure the conflict stops!
  • Oh, I am so seasick. Everyone fighting is making me weary.
  • Mayflower Compact
  • Thanks, William!
  • That's great! Now all of us proprietors in Maryland can choose the governors.
  • And, our voters can choose who is in the lower house!
  • This is our House of Burgesses. We will meet here once a year to make laws.
