This Old WomanPosted: May 5, 2011
Okay so now everyone reading my blog knows how lacking in computer savvy I really am. If only I had majored in audiovisual/communications in high school. Instead I opted for a science/math concentration. Well now is way too late to rethink that decision. Oh wait, there were no computers when I went to high school, and no internet! So, see I really have a great excuse. I am old. In fact I can use that excuse more and more freely as the years add up for me. I also note that it is increasingly difficult to care about learning how to upload photos and create documents.
This sort of relates to my lack of interest in the English Royal Family’s latest life events. Of course not being a British citizen, or a fan of monarchial rule, also contributes to my disinterest in their family. I in fact feel enormous dismay over the great interest shown by descendants of the “huddled masses yearning to breathe free” (Americans) to this rather every day event (young people marrying) taking place in the families of those who cause “the huddled masses” to long for freedom by denying them freedom in their own countries, Royal Families!
Thus in this, and indeed in many ways, I am out of step with the modern world. I can learn to use my computer to better express my opinions and thusly convey in a more appealing and convincing way any notions that may pop into my old head now and then. But, I can not forget why my country exists, and what it stands for. It is diametrically in opposition to all inheritable rights to governance and rulership; which of course allows the accruing and retaining of wealth and power as a family. The people of such nations have no legal way to roust power from their Monarchs. Monarchies are just like dictatorships, only more so.
To all those American citizens that get all dreamy-eyed at the “fairy tale wedding” of young English Nobles decked out in all their pompous finery; shame on you! Maybe we should offer you all refresher courses in Forms of Government or Why I am an American.
