6 thoughts on “The Coronation”

  1. The opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference.

    Which is what I feel about the Royals…

    ~250 years ago my family loaned money to the Continental Congress to fight those assholes. I’m glad they did it and would appreciate at least interest payments on the loan.

  2. I think the coronation shows just how tiny our own history is and that’s a good thing. I think all those historical symbols – like the stone in the ancient throne etc – are of real value.

    After all, one of the tenants of Conservatism is that we are not isolated in time but are trying to conserve what was given to us for future generations. I think it’s really easy to forget that.

    Ceremonies like the coronation remind us of that. It reminds us that history is important. You eliminate the monarchy and all that ceremony and no one will be reminded of their history. There’d be no reason to think of it. It would be ignored.

    That’s bad.

    A little gaudy, to be sure. The robes crowns and carriages are not to my taste aesthetically. But that’s a matter of taste.

  3. It’s just impossible for me to take anyone with as much cringeworthy history as this guy has seriously as a monarch. Unless he dies atypically young for someone of his bloodline, he is not going to be a net plus for the institution of the monarchy. I alternate between referring to him as Charles the Woke and Charles the Last.
