    present subjunctive

    hello tdol,

    I'm confused.

    I insist that he be dismissed = I insist that he should be dismissed?
    In actuality he is not dismissed, so it is present subjunctive?


    But I thought:
    If I were the king, she would be queen. -present subjunctive
    If I had been the king, she would have been queen. - past subjunctive
