Médaille on Monarchy

Catholic professor John Médaille of the University of Dallas explains in The Remnant why he is a Monarchist. (Interestingly, though writing here in a traditionalist publication, Médaille is not a [liturgical] traditionalist himself and, a mutual friend tells me, has only recently come around to the monarchist point of view, which he used to oppose.) Some of his points are not unlike those I've made myself, particularly regarding the illusion of "choice" in modern democracy. While I would be reluctant to link monarchism too closely to the entirety of the traditional Catholic agenda, the truth of much of what he says can be appreciated by readers of any religious viewpoint. I'm not sure, however, what the juxtaposition of the images of Louis XVI and Barack Obama is supposed to mean.

That *is* a weird image.

My God that is atrocious. Glenn Beck did a similar picture with Obama as Mussolini and I thought that was insulting enough - to Mussolini!

That image was disturbing, but it's heartening to see Professor Medaille take the position he's taking.

I found the image and the last paragraph most annoying.
