Kings vs Presidents

Charles Coulombe reflects on what January means for the very different political systems of republicanism and monarchy.

An excellent piece although some of the comments are predictable.

One of the joys of monarchy is realizing that we cannot agitate for it.

We must pray.

Liberation from the modern tyranny of "activism" is a great grace.

Revolution has never improved life for any society from the first revolution in Heaven even unto the present. "Non serviam!" results in the same everywhere: misery, wickedness, bloodshed.

Not in the United States at any rate. In some European countries (e.g. Hungary--see subsequent post) there may still be a place for monarchist "agitation." Fully agree about the "modern tyranny of 'activism'" however.
