Chapter 396: Long Way to Go (Part Two)
Xu Cheng: “What? That’s just in the movies.”
Bei Shan bitterly smiled. “It’s still unclear. If there’s really no hidden power supporting the royal family, how could its prestige remain above the government? They are able to pass down the royalty over generations safely without fail, and there’s no rebellion against their power at all. Don’t you think it’s a bit strange? Why does their entire continent admire the royal family that much and only recognize the royals? Think back to the second world war, the eight army alliance, why do all nations agree to be led by Britain? Why is only their knighthood authentic? If there’s no power supporting behind them, it would be impossible to maintain the stability of the nation throughout history.”
Xu Cheng narrowed his eyes, it wasn’t like Bei Shan wasn’t making sense. The reason M Nation was a big capitalistic nation was that the Roosevelt and Morgan financial groups had a huge impact on the history of the nation. Just like why wuxia was so influential in Huaxia, it was because history could really be traced back to when wuxia existed in the public eye. Then, the culture of other nations most likely also have a history to trace back to, everything’s possible.
“After you said that, why does it feel like our Dragon Division isn’t that awesome anymore…” Xu Cheng was a bit speechless.
“It can’t be said that we aren’t awesome, at least you are!” Bei Shan said, “This is why the Demon Legion swore to protect the Little Joker, and we have to protect you. If the Dragon Division were to lose its Dragon King, then our overall strength would just be too pitiful to look at. Just like if they didn’t have the Little Joker, you could kill one of their top cards every couple of seconds. Every country has its ace, and you are Huaxia’s ace. You can’t be exposed, and we can’t let anything happen to you unless you find a successor. Otherwise, if we were to lose you, Huaxia would not only lose the ability to steal information from other countries, but also the ability to counter foreign spies. So, in the future, don’t take risks so easily.”
Xu Cheng nodded. “I got it. But right now, the overall strength of the Dragon Division is really a bit too weak, what’s your opinion?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Bei Shan: “I don’t have any opinion right now, just a big pain in the azz! In fact, Huaxia has a lot of talented seeds, but we can only pick talents with grassroots and no background because we were in a fight against the behemoth families. That’s what’s the pain in the azz. The Dragon Division cannot interfere with the political affairs of the country at any time, and the moment we recruit those connected to behemoth families or political backgrounds, the balance will tip. Not only would we risk being infiltrated by other parties and possibly be taken advantage of, we would also be dragged into unnecessary conflicts. Look at it now, although our Dragon Blades are the top fighting power in the nation, we still got our face slapped by those from M Nation and even allowed them to escape. They would only get more and more arrogant, and that’s why I’m so facking pizzed!” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Xu Cheng rolled his eyes at him. “This is inevitable. Whatever, grassroots are fine too, it’s fine if we take our steps a bit slower. On the M Nation side, the Little Joker also doesn’t have too much time left. We will let them have the glory for now, and we will return the favor to them in the future.” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
