Denis Diderot was right. Mankind will only be free when the last royal is strangled with the entrails of the last priest. The French revolutionaries were right with their guillotine. The Russian Revolutionaries were right when they executed the Tsar and family.
The American Revolution was right when it kicked the King out and became an independent nation rather than part of the Commonwealth.
The proper place for any Royal head is on the end of a pike.
I didn’t give a shit about the wedding of Charles and Diana and I don’t give a shit about the wedding of the royal spawn and who ever.
I have an alternative to Great Britain’s current austerity plan for the poor and working people. Get rid of the royals and confiscate all their wealth and property. There isn’t any “Divine Right of Kings”.
Royalty is an anachronism that has no place in an egalitarian world. It needs to be given its proper place on the dung heap of history.
I care more about the half million people who marched over the weekend than I care about the spectacle of the overly privileged and under deserving royals.
Of course Huffington Post, which is rapidly losing its edge under the ownership of AOL, is in a tizzy about anarchists possibly disrupting the royal wedding. Wonder when they will actually start paying their contributors?

A small group separated from the main protest, hurling ammonia-filled light bulbs, paint and wooden planks at officers and smashing windows near London’s Trafalgar Square.
Police commander Bob Broadhurst said the April 29 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton carries even more of a security threat than the anti-austerity protests, and that means police officers will be able to tap into special stop-and-search powers that fall under Britain’s counterterrorism laws.
