10. RULING FAMILY, RULING CLASS
The power of the ruling class, augmented by the learned preceptor, buttressed by the counsel of good ministers, armed with the compliance of scriptures and sciences triumphs and ever remains unvanquished.
Corporations (or groups of exclusive ruling class) being close-knit are not easily assailable by enemies.
A ruling family composed of indisciplined and dissolute members breaks like moth-eaten wood.
