He feeds writers and intellectuals from the Royal Kitchen in order to instruct them in the art of writing and commissions a cohort of under-conscience-sellers to certify that freedom of expression reigns supreme in his regime — everybody is free to use any form, meter or rhyme they like to write a panegyric to the leader.
