    No what I mean is that the ruling upper classes had more of a say as to what happened than in other countries. This was more of a democracy than other singular countries had at the time, albeit a very watered down one. I am just pointing out the differences in how we were run.

    I agree that it does need to change though. Although you really are not helping you arguments by saying things like I wish a still born on Kate or whatever her name is.

    And if they're no good they can be changed but that really isn't the point. No person is better or more worthy of life simply because they're born to a certain family, no matter how much wealth and power that family have. There should be equality in society. Equal opportunity. Having the position of head of state exclusive to not just one family but to the order in which you were born in to that family is a fucking insult to the 62 million people that live in this country. It's an insult to democracy, it's an insult to the idea of equality, it's a personal insult and a slap in the face to any individual outside of their blood sucking family.

    You keep saying you're not a royalist but I think you are, you're just in the closet. Anybody that can tolerate being shafted by these vampires on a daily basis without getting even a little bit riled up about it is a closet royalist and undeserving of any semblance of freedom or liberty because to be a royalist but not a royal is to accept servitude to someone who doesn't know your name, who cares nothing for your needs or wants, who wouldn't urinate on you if you were on fire, who sees you as inferior in every shape and form of the word. If that's what people desire then that's what they deserve.

Part of the reason that Britain can afford to allow you such luxury is because it is in privileged historical position and has benefited from the empire it used to have. So according to your logic you should give all your possessions to a country that used to belong to the empire but doesn't have such things now yes?
    This doesn't mean we should not try and make our society fairer. Also every western European country was building its own trading empire back then. We were just the best at it.

    On the topic of assassinations I don't know why people think it is impossible. This kind of stuff has always happened. It just shakes your world view up if you start to consider it.

She either does exactly what they tell her to or she'll end up like Diana.
    So, Burrell and Hewitt, one who released a tell all book, the other who commited treason, are allowed to live because they are "mere servants" but a nurse who forwards a phone call meets with an accident within a few days?

    They're jokers with delusions of grandeur. Both of them have done a far better job of ruining their own lives than the royal mafia ever could. The situation with the nurse is slightly different. She will have been preassured in to doing what she did. That hospital she worked at is so masonic it may as well be called the All Seeing Eye Hospital rather than the King Edward or whatever it is. There are a lot of extremely powerful people working there who have been made to look very silly. 33rd degree masons with knighthoods. Someone had to be punished and they picked her, a non-white worker (and therefore doubly inferior and worth even less than white peasants in the eyes of the monarchy) and hounded her to death.

    Pretty much everything you have said, I am unsure if you actually believe this nonsense or if you are just trolling us.
