1. Introduction

Short for "I am king". Refers to the modern propensity for people to talk about political issues as if they personally ran policy, without any care to think about the fact that they don't.

For example, the statement "we should raise taxes" is an IAK statement because "we" doesn't mean anything here. The person talking has no control over the "we", or the group of people making public policy. To say that they do via democracy is very likely to be a case of IEEDI syndrome. Talking about IAK without being aware of the lack of direct input can put people in an unhealthy mindset.

2. Conclusion

It can be fun to make IAK statements, in which case do so, but many do not realize how useless they are, because it is a direct consequence of IEEDI, which people also don't get in general.
