Everyone's a King

Talifaitasi Satele

A colleague of mine informed me that the late Malietoa Tanumafili II once said that in Samoa, everyone is a king. I think that the former Head of State of Independent Samoa almost got that right. That’s because if everyone is a king, then no one really is.

I believe every man is king of himself and his property, and he is not a subject of another man or of a majority of men. If every man is a king in that respect, I believe Malietoa would have been even more correct to say that in Samoa, every man is free.

God bless America and American Samoa!
