What kind of world ruler would you be?

That is a most challenging question that requires a strong insight into oneself as well as, at the very least, a cursory knowledge of world events, cultures, history, and geography.


In short, I don’t think I have the intellectual capacity, knowledge, or experience to be a good world leader. That being said, let’s explore the question further. I’ll debate myself and see who wins.

The narcissistic side of me would like to believe that my “vast collection,” of experiences and leadership roles would allow me to make responsible decisions. I’ve several college degrees. I’ve worked in a wide variety of fields, to include the sciences, teaching, the military, law enforcement, public relations, tourism, and more. My “worldly” knowledge of having lived on multiple continents, the handful of languages I speak, and the travels I have undertaken would allow me to have a base level of understanding of regional affairs, challenges, and conflicts.

The realist in me would laugh at the narcissist and simply state the obvious: My experiences are a drop in the bucket within the diaspora of the human condition. My travels are insignificant when considering the number of sites around the globe. My leadership positions have never had me lead anything larger than a platoon-sized element.

In conclusion, I believe the world is too large and too complex for any one person to understand. I believe the amount of power wielded by a World Ruler would be to enticing to abuse. I think even the most well-intentioned person would overstep, if only accidently and with the intention to do good, with possibly catastrophic consequences (take down one horrible dictator who killed thousands only to have a region collapse into perpetual warfare and cause hundreds of thousands of deaths). A good leader would need to be logical, callous, and understand trends, underlying causative factors, and would be very much despised by most of the world.

It reminds me of the one ring, from Lord of the Rings. If Gandalf, a powerful wizard with thousands of years of knowledge turned down the ring, who am I to take up the mantle of power and responsibility for nearly eight billion people?

Into the Fold
Kan Savasci Cycle Book 3


Continue the Award Winning Saga...




For over a millennium The Fold has been a carefully guarded secret, shrouded in mystery. Within its shadowy depths the greatest of the old gods had carved a world unto himself. A place unrivaled in its beauty, obscurity, and danger.



Trapped within The Fold, under the tutelage of the last arkeinists, Aeden must overcome his greatest obstacle, or die trying.





Welcome to Chase Blackwood's author bio, where he'll try to write something interesting about his life that captures your attention.




Chase Blackwood's life has been defined by struggle the way a moth battles an insect zapping light. He's studied martial arts since childhood in an effort to overcome fear. He's lived in a half dozen countries in an effort to "find himself," traveled to over 60 countries in an effort to "find humanity," lived in nine states just for the hell of it, oh... and the military has had something to do with that too. Chase has enjoyed combating terrorism, working as a federal agent, and also really likes puppies.



His most recent passion, puppies aside, has been working on the Kan Savasci Cycle, a series of fantasy novels that pulls from his life experiences to make the most vivid world imaginable.
