Of all the absurd theories generated by the 20th century, none was more ridiculous than Francis Fukuyama's “End of History” canard, which arrogantly assumed Western-style liberal “democracy” was the terminus of human development. Despite such neo-conservative vapourings, history marches on regardless.previous

Writes Mrs. Laura Wood over at her weblog The Thinking Housewife:
And notice who responded to this incident. Not one, but two female police officers. There is nothing so reassuring as a security force in ponytails.

As reported recently, there is an initiative to change succession rules in the Commonwealth realms.
It is interesting with the upcoming Diamond Jubilee, the second in a bit more than a century, that this is so pressing. In the past two centuries there has been a female monarch on the Britannic throne more than 60 percent of the time. And the British Prime Minister feels the need to “end discrimination” against females.
Royal World gives some thoughts and has some more statistics.
Rants The Mad Monarchist:
The idea of trying to end birthright discrimination in a hereditary monarchy is so ludicrous it makes my head hurt. I know I’ve asked this before, but seriously, what happened to Great Britain? Did a majority of the British public all suddenly get hit with a dumb stick sometime after World War II? I don’t mean to be harsh here, the same could be asked about most monarchies in Europe. That is what this is really, a fashionable trend. Sweden, Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium and so on have already done the same and Britain doesn’t want to be the odd man out. Sure, other monarchies still have male primogeniture, like Monaco, but Britain doesn’t want to be anything like Monaco. They have very low taxes, a monarchy that still rules the country and you can go to jail if you insult the Prince. What a horrid place. No, the UK wants to be like the progressive, socialist monarchies on the continent. Next thing you know they’ll be trying to make the Queen ride a bicycle to Westminster for the opening of Parliament and tell her she can’t wear her own crown anymore.

Over at AltRight Radio, Richard Spencer and Dr. Paul Gottfried discuss the “Conservative Canon,” the book-reading list of the so-called conservative movement, and the upcoming H.L. Mencken Club annual conference.

Trond Norén Isaksen notes that “conservative” David Cameron has launched an initiative to change succession rules in the British Commonwealth.
Much can be said about it. Please feel free to see my previous short thoughts on it. Also, Royal World had a post earlier this year.
The same monarchy-oriented historian Isaksen also has a note on a Danish motion to “modernize” the Constitution.

Yes, fair enough! Makes some great points! And:
What if Judge Napolitano spread myths about the tyranny of the George III regime? What if Judge Napolitano talked about the George III regime as a big government regime? What if Judge Napolitano didn't listen to Dr. Gary North on American Independence?
