Lets assume you are

using this story to describe an illegitimate ruling class. Not a child. First, you set boundaries (Constitution). Second, you defend boundaries. Third, by being responsible and refusing to allow them through the boundaries, you create a better relationship with these individuals. There will be peace, for awhile. Soon, another nasty group will arrive and test your boundaries. Defend them again and around we go. Giving in and allowing them to act like petulant little children is irresponsible and will result in YOU becoming their servant.
