Say, who actually "rules" your factory? If it has:

>overseers (call them sergeants)
>scientific department (is it in Silicon Valley or right on site?)
>managers
>owners/shareholders
>government inspectors (regulations for industry at large)
Hierarchy and command structures exist in all societies, even those which purport to be anarchistic. For example, was Sid Vicious equal in power and authority to Johnny Rotten in the Peoples' Republic of Sex Pistols? Just how egalitarian were the Mammas and the Poppas? If everyone rows the oars independently you see a lot of activity and yet the boat doesn't go anywhere.

What do you mean by "iron hand"?
Name three greatest life-changing events since the Antiquity. First fire? First bow? First army? First penicillin? First car? How many of their creators were monarchs?

How the hierarchy could ever include people/organizations not actually involved in business (absentee)?

Not exactly neutral on the subject.
Why the French didn't stay in Atlantic colonies as conquerors after their splendid victories 1779-81?

Monarchs are capable sometimes of artistic and scientific creativity, but that is not what monarchs are for.

Were there peace proposals to end the war before 1945?

To rule means to change something, isn't it?
