Flag Day Address

90 years ago today, the Persona Non Grata of this blog gave a Flag Day address – or a propaganda speech if you will – at a place none other than the Washington Monument.

The Persona Non Grata, amongst other things, said:

A Government accountable to the people themselves will be set up in Germany, as has been the case in England, the United States, and France—in all great countries of modern times except Germany.
Apart from the fact that democracy had been expanding in Germany for quite a while at the time, this faith in popular government is little more than outright pathetic.

With modern, Wilsonian democracy, every check worth speaking of on popular power has been removed. In the words of Bertrand de Jouvenel, we have "the most cumbersome, and the most burdensome state authority ever yet experienced by our civilization."
