In response to the
Guardian article, "The logic of the
bloodline" by Mark Lawson
on the difference
between the Royal Family and the rest of us

It is not often I read something in the
Guardian that I find offensive, but this statement I do -
profoundly! It is like saying that Commonwealth (black) soldiers
are expendable, but white ones are not.
" . . . . . the decision is treacherous and complex and
questions the very concept of a modernized monarchy".
Indeed it does!
Why do we keep the monarchy? Because it is intimately
associated with the power structures of the British state and all
the perks and advantages for those in a position to benefit from
them. And because of a monstrous LIE that has been enforced and
upheld for centuries in order to keep the masses subservient to
their "social betters" and masters.
It is not just that we descend from apes - we ARE apes, and
behave accordingly, using our big brains and prodigious
intelligence to rationalize and justify it.
Homo sapiens, indeed!
