"Content is king" is a phrase so worn and cliche as to be empty. In other words, it is the antonym of "content." Yet, we still spew the phrase as if it were as new as "the cloud" and "big data" (chuckle).
People like to trace the three words back to Bill Gates in 1996 although certain industry names lay claim as well. If I were Bill Gates, I wouldn't want to claim the damn tainted phrase either.
But, if we are going to talk about it, let us at least stop being silly and offensive. Even Bill Gates in '96 should have known better, or whoever is the true creator. By attaching "content" to the word "king" you have a catchy little phrase, but one that was incorrect when first spoken.
My (biased) definition follows:
The ruler of a people, historically: white male, aristocrat, and conqueror. One of the wealthy, elite, divinely appointed, chosen by birth right, dominant, blood and gold thirsty, and inbred.
Until those more powerful than I remedy the situation, I suggest (since "king" is arbitrary anyway) that we embrace a female people who have historically been abused and neglected. Millions of women who produce exquisite content could use more time in the spotlight, and the withered white king should be laid to rest.
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.
