Quote of the Month

Writes Ms. Helen Rittelmeyer over at her weblog The Cigarette Smoking Blog:

Liechtenstein’s monarchy is one of the jewels of Mitteleuropean government, right up there with the canton system of Switzerland. And with the highest per capita GDP in Europe, it’s not as if Liechtenstein’s democracy movement has any concrete objection to the hereditary monarch apart from his being a hereditary monarch. If the supporters of this referendum have no better argument than a general faith in democracy, then speaking as a citizen of a democracy, I would advise them to reconsider.
