Randoms on Democracy and Monarchy

Geeky monarchists have been noticed over at CrunchBase.

Royal World has some post, some of which are:

Some of the posts of the Mad Monarchist:Some on the Great War:Some on the so-called shutdown of the federal government of those United States:Vive la Reine has a post on the portrait of Louis XVI at Mount Vernon (via Tea at Trianon).

28 percent of Russians in an opinion poll want the vacancy of the Russian throne to end. So RT reports. Says Avenging Red Hand:
Why are we going around choosing kings? Maria Vladimirovna is the Empress. End of story. Crown her.

Radish gives us Democracy and the Intellectuals.

The Radical Royalist reports on the monarchism of Her Britannic Majesty's new Australian Prime Minister.

Over at his weblog More Right, Michael Anissimov posts Ten Objections to Traditionalism and Monarchism, With Answers, amongst other interesting material.

Outsideness says:
Constitutions are designs and operating instructions for mechanisms. They don't rule any more than rocket blueprints blast into orbit.
The same also says:
Unlike democracy, the Easter Bunny looks good in principle.
James Woods quotes a Pruzansky:
The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living[.]
Bryce Laliberte writes:
Democracy is not politically neutral. It favors certain kinds of social reform over others, which becomes a feedback loop into singularity.
Mr. Laliberte also writes:
Democracy is war. You win by the willingness to cause destruction.
I don't want democracy because nearly everyone is stupid and I don't trust them.
Also from Mr. Laliberte:
Opposition to democracy should be the conservative's foundation. Without this, he has already lost.
Finally a supposed quote from Queen Victoria:
Feminists ought to get a good whipping.

Anomaly UK here — Note the “Maria Vladimirovna is Empress” quote you attribute to me is actually Arthur Harrison’s (I was quoting him, my own position is more equivocal). More discussion followed at his blog.

Sorry and thanks, sir. It is fixed now.

Now why did I not see that? Probably because there was no indent or something else marking it clearly as a quote. Sometimes things go a bit quickly.
