Monarchical principle


Monarchy is not, thank God, compatible with a truly meritocratic society, or equality of opportunity, or post-imperial guilt or separation of church and state. It represents hierarchy, nationhood, the good kind of pride, a very long and beautiful tradition. These things do not matter very much to most British people who love the monarchy (as all nice British people do) or to most Romanians who want to restore the monarchy (as all nice Romanians do) but they do to me.
