If I were British, I would be angry over this, though I would also be angry over the royal family to begin with. Think about the tax-dollars that will
be thrown at this wedding (who do you think ultimately pays for security and other tid-bits). For what? I don't understand why people allow other
people privilege, at their own expense, just on the simple and false premise that they are some-how better than the rest of us.
I say, make them work like everyone else. Their own private riches (ever penny) are ill-gotten, to say the least and presumably the result of everyone
else's hard work, again on the simple and false premise that they are somehow better than the rest of us.
Talk about a burden on society and for what? It is this kind of thinking (believing in the monarchy) that has doomed mankind for hundreds, if not
thousands of years. Have we not yet evolved past this kind of non-sense? Frankly, I get sick to my stomach even thinking about it, and I'm not
British. Don't get me wrong, I think America has its own oligarchy (to an extent), though at least ours has to be somewhat hidden. Again, this whole
royal wedding makes me want to puke and what's worse, is everyone bowing down to and cherishing it, as if there is nothing wrong with the general
idea. I believe that the monarchy, even in its diminished state, is about as justified as African-American slavery.
Instead of British tax-dollars being used to fund a portion of their privilidge, the royal family should be begging not to be exiled or at least they
should have to explain why every asset they own, should not go back to the British people.
