Today I responded at length to a post at a blog by self-proclaimed "open-minded young traditionalist Catholics" which blithely identified monarchism as the sort of thing that no "sane" person believes in anymore. Infuriatingly, this writer actually concedes the aesthetic appeal of monarchy, while rejecting the possibility of serious contemporary ideological monarchism as "esoteric" or worse. I'm not sure which is more irritating: people who are totally enthralled with republicanism, or people who aren't but belittle monarchists anyway. Since I normally just ignore the former, it's probably the latter.
(I am of course a friend and fan of "The Mad Monarchist," but I'm confident that the name of his blog is quite tongue in cheek.)
Incidentally, while I've had my disagreements with viewpoints expressed on the presumably non-"open-minded" traditional Catholic blog Durendal, after "Renegade Trads" this article by unreconstructed reactionary monarchist Eric Jones was a refreshing contrast.
