Quote of the Month

Writes Michael LaRue, Knight of St. John, over at his weblog Pedes Christi:

Monarchy is often done little help by its defenders, who usually say that it is irrational but beneficial. Most often its attackers will say that it is "romanticism". However, a look at the history of political theory reveals that it is not monarchy, but democracy, that is the product of Romanticism.

A note may be in order on the date of this quote. The Wilson Revolution Unplugged Quote of the Month Award is strictly for quotes originally made in the month in question. The observant reader will see that the linked blog post was posted on April 30. However, the time zone of this weblog is Vienna time, whereas the time zone of the quoted weblog – investigations show – is Mountain View time (apparently the default when you create a blog – Blogger/Google is headquartered in Mountain View, California). Hence, the awarded post was published in May Vienna time.
