Having cordially linked to my previous post on King Juan Carlos, my friend the "Mad Monarchist" expresses his frustration with the way many self-proclaimed monarchists seem to devote more energy to attacking contemporary monarchies, monarchs, and monarchists that don't live up to their unrealistic expectations than to attacking republics and republicans. I know exactly what he means and recommend his post--and his blog in general--to all who might not yet be familiar with it.
In the movie Nicholas & Alexandra, Trotsky once exclaims to Lenin, "you hate anyone who isn't your type of Bolshevik more than you hate the Tsar!" Monarchists need to make sure we're not the mirror image of that. Ideological purity may have worked for the Bolsheviks, but it will never work for us.
