Quote of the Month

Writes “Mencius Moldbug” at his weblog Unqualified Reservations:

Most educated people today think of democracy as a sort of impeccable ointment against political evil. We are aware - nay continuously instructed, these days, from crib to coffin - that bad government was the leading cause of death, destruction and general misery around the globe in the last century. But now we have a new century to play with, and we have this bezoar, this philosopher's stone, democracy.

S.K.u.K.M. Kaiser und König KarlNine decades ago, the Great War came to an end. More than four years of brutal killing fortunately came to an end.

Unfortunately, out of the ashes stood an entirely new world as a phoenix. Kaiser Karl renounced his powers. A couple of days later he also did so as King of Hungary.

The new age has given us a lot of troubles; totalitarianism of many flavors, omnipotent and omnipresent government, and ugliness in society – to name a few.
