I just want to say, although I don't agree with your political standing, your posts are extremely well articulated and you always have a good point to make that I haven't thought of. your post in the Munich thread about how you'd prefer a multiracial society over a multicultural society was excellent and I definitely agree with you on it.
Dont drink & drive !!!!
You are younger than 18? You "sound" much older than that.
What's your opinion on Cameron resigning? While I don't agree with everything you say I still think you make pretty informative posts and your opinion is pretty interesting to read about on SH. Who do you hope takes his place?
I'm glad you started a blog. Reading your various article atm. Can't say I agree with it all but its a good read.
and when i say her family, i'm not talking about oldass henry the eighth shit, there are much more recent examples of the royal family doing some fucked up shit. i don't know why you're asking for evidence as if it isn't common knowledge (i can't provide actual links rn sozpal but just do ya googles) but i thought everyone knew they were at least a little bit shady? +in regards to the laughing stock "hearsay", it's no secret that the queen causes national embarrassment simply because we're still clinging to ancient bullshit ~traditions~ like birth rights, any other country in the world with a monarchy is looked at in contempt ever since the world realized empires aren't a noble endeavor, britain gets a free pass because of tradition? again, i can't give you pasted links at the moment but i'd imagine it actually takes an amount of effort to not be aware of these sorta facts despite growing up in a place like the UK
all you have to do is google anything along the lines of "uk monarchy crimes" and you'll find a bunch of stuff
tradition is absolutely not the reason why we retain the monarchy; the queen owns a shitload of land and if we piss her off we'd most likely end up paying 3 types of tax (council, government and royal); the primary reason she's still around is because it's simpler that way. people in power don't genuinely care about tradition, it's only a factor when it comes to preventing uproar. i mean english people are traditionally bigots (as are most die-hard national-pride queen idolizers, anecdotally) but "that's how it's been so that's how it'll be" isn't much of an argument, that's why you get a bunch of stuck-in-the-past brits who say delusional shit like "the UK has a better army than the US because we're fighting for queen and country!!"
read up on the war crimes and just her (+family's) general history, + the fact that she only has power thanks to being born to a bloodline of cut-throat savages. +hella wrong if you think people don't skip the rose-tinted tradition and look at the monarch as a straight up mockery of a crumbled ~empire~, and comparisons like sweden don't really work since we're talking about the tradition of >great britain< in which the role of the queen has had much more of a cultural (+historical/international) impact than the other examples.
tradition isn't inherently wrong of course and there are plenty of traditional things that are worth preserving, but a manipulative setback like the queen really isn't a good argument as to why we should remain in the past
i don't wanna bump that thread but fyi the queen is a terrible example to use when praising british cultural tradition considering she's a criminal who does little more than hold the nation back as well as make the UK somewhat of a laughing stock to foreign countries
thank you for, from what i've seen, presenting proper arguments unlike most on here. kudos.
