Isn't it funny that when the prime minister of Turkey irritates the population by plowing down some trees and acting like a jerk the whole country takes to the street to demand his ouster, while when the US government violates our most private moments by listening in to all of our telephone calls and monitoring our every move it is *** crickets *** beyond a tiny few hyped-up Facebook posters and meme-artists?previous
Yet the US claims the right to teach the rest of the world about democracy, civil rights, and individual liberties?

Royal World reports on the support for monarchy in Serbia. So does Radical Royalist.
Radical Royalist also reports on republicanism in the Commonwealth of Australia.
Tea at Trianon posts on the House of Liechtenstein.
Reporters Club Nepal reports on a Nepalese party's hope for revival. FreeNepal News Network does so too.
Johnson's Russia List reports on the support for monarchy in Russia. Yes, the numbers may seem low. However, they are apparently moving in the right direction, and we must remember how much anti-monarchist propaganda Russians have been subject to.
Royal Central reflects on the reign of Britannic monarch George V.
Stirring Trouble Internationally protests modernization of the monarchy.
Some republican has the screwed idea that there are no good monarchist arguments.
Writes Ms. Suzanne Lynch over at The Irish Times:
Despite mumblings of discontent, the position of royalty has never seemed so safe. At a time when public satisfaction with directly elected representatives is at a low, for advocates of democracy this is a cruel irony.Economics Is For Donkeys ponders monarchy and meritocracy.
ThinkSpain reports on the Spanish King's worries.

30 years ago today, Her Britannic Majesty gave the speech from the throne, following Mrs. Thatcher landslide first reelection.
There are things to be commended from the Thatcher years, indeed, and it is always good to ponder how irritating it can be for feminists that shortly after Margaret Thatcher resigned from the office of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Mr. Thatcher was elevated to a hereditary baronetcy. I do not believe it is incorrect to call the coming to power of Mrs. Thatcher and the years in power following a miracle, but it is in any case generally overrated, and we need to sober up. This goes for Ronald Reagan as well as for Margaret Thatcher. As Mr. Gerald Warner has said, “The Lady’s bark was worse than her bite.”
Here are some articles balancing the praise:
- Mr. Peter Hitchens
- Dr. Sean Gabb (who also follows up and is balanced by Leon Georgiou and Anna Raccoon)
- Mr. Justin Raimondo
- the late Murray Rothbard (originally published when she was PM)
- Colin Liddell

His late father, Farouk I, is reported to have said:
The whole world is in revolt. Soon there will be only five Kings left — the King of England, the King of Spades, the King of Clubs, the King of Hearts, and the King of Diamonds.Apart from the fact that there constitutionally is no such thing as King of England, there hasn't been a King of England since the abdication of Farouk I in 1952, a Queen however, but several have remained.
The “Arab Spring” does not bring much hope.
