C.S. Lewis Passing

C.S. Lewis plaque
50 years ago today, C.S. Lewis passed from this world.

To quote:
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Aldous Huxley Passing

Gettysburg Address at 150

Three halves of a century ago today, Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address.

On this day we recall the words of Samuel Langhorne Clemens:

Wherefore being all of one mind, we do highly resolve that government of the grafted by the grafter for the grafter shall not perish from the earth.
Remember also some words of Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn:
While it is perhaps true that “one cannot fool all the people all the time,” it seems that one can fool millions for centuries.
A behemoth was to rise to make the world “safe” for democracy.

Happy National Day, Monaco!

The Principality of Monaco, one of two monarchies in Europe where the monarch can actually in any meaningful way be said to still be ruling, celebrates her National Day.

Congratulations! Especially to the Princely Family and the people and residents of Monaco!

Guns Silent

95 years ago today, the guns of the Great War fell silent – the last anniversary of Armistice Day before the centennial of the beginning of that same dreadful war.

On the same day, the Emperor of Austria renounced power and the Austro-Hungarian Imperial-Royal Family moved from Schönbrunn to internal exile at Eckartsau.

Two days prior, the German abdication had been announced.

Two days later, the Hungarian equivalent to the Austrian renunciation was signed at Eckartsau.

A world ended, it was the dawn of a new age, the era of Wilsonian mass democracy.

This eleventh of November is also the 66th anniversary famous dictum on democracy. It is too the anniversary of the House of Lords Act 1999.
