Minogue on Reactionaries

Taki's Magazine has a good article "In Praise of Reactionaries" by Kenneth Minogue, an emeritus professor of the London School of Economics. It's always good to see a distinguished commentator making one of my favourite points in defence of royalty, namely that the fact that they're not elected is a strength, not a weakness. Also important is the oft-overlooked fact that those who have assumed that abolishing or weakening monarchies would eliminate war ("Kant's Fallacy") have been profoundly wrong.
