KINGS conscript the best
FATHERS raise up their best
BROTHERS kill off their best

KINGS – have queens

KINGS – grow by conscription

BROTHERS – grow by domination

KINGS – banish all disloyal subjects.
FATHERS – release all prodigals in love.
BROTHERS – seek to destroy all who disagree.

KINGS – are always looking to hire stars as the attraction
FATHERS – make the family the attraction
BROTHERS – are the star attraction

KINGS – declare their love for their loyal subjects
FATHERS – demonstrate their love for their family
BROTHERS – demand the love of all and sundry.

KINGS – are sons who have made their family their subjects.
