Well, except in this case, Marston had the 'people in charge' be the people who were decidedly NOT in charge back then - women. From what I've read, Marston preached submission to women as a form of feminism - he saw it as an extension of obeying your mother, courting your girlfriend, keeping a harmonious relationship with your wife; all things which were ultimately to the benefit of both sides. Those, he was saying, are some of the more meaningful influences on men's lives, and if we'd just learn to accept them as such, to submit to those who genuinely have our best interests at heart, we'd be a far less dysfunctional society. (Of course, he was also a genuine bondage freak; there's no doubt about it - but at least he had a solid psychological underpinning for it.) As for Etta on the throne, that's just an extension of the crazy stuff that normal sororities do - dressing up like babies, that sort of thing.
