Artillery For The Queen – Watch The Throne

Today marks 60 years Queen Elizabeth II has had the throne:

Read about the 62 gun salute – HERE

I could listen to that brass hit the ground all day!

To quote Jay-z and Kanye on Watch The Throne… “That shit CRAY!”.  

The queen seems cool and all, and I know it’s history… but seriously when is this ridiculous charade that is the royal family, going to stop?

Or the ridiculous charade that is the Parliament. Or the ridiculous charade that is the EU. etc. So long as people can be convinced that they need to be ruled, there will be “functional privileges, and privileged functions” as Hans Herman “Triple H” Hoppe puts it.

“So long as people can be convinced that they need to be ruled”.

People will always need to be ruled. People for the most part are dumb as fuck. and need some kind of law and order. As fun as it would be to think that without governments nobody would fuck anybody over, it would soon devolve into anarchy.

“people can be convinced that they need to be ruled” ? Seriously?
Sorry if I’m mistaken, but you guys have a government as well, don’t you? Even Iraq has a government.
U.S. citizens even have 2 layers of government, if you take the State and Federal Government.
I don’t really care about the royal family, I’m not British, but remember guys that Royalty is first and foremost a political organization, just like republic. It’s not just a lot of fancy clothes and jewels…
It has significant advantages, such as consistency through the years (the sovereign is supposed to be there for a long period of time, which can prevent contradictory decision every 4-5 years, depending on the elections in you country), the interests of the country are considered before the personal interests (the Queen/King will give the country to her/his children, so he better take care of it, and make sure he’ll educate them in a way that they’ll be somehow capable…).

Of course, this is what SHOULD happen in an ideal world, it can be perverted, just like any other system.

Jeep that’s not an attack on the British system specifically. Mike called the royal family a “ridiculous charade” and I tool him to be protesting the tax sinkhole that is “the crown”; a deep and important cultural heritage worth preserving for some, and a highway robbery of millions for the benefit of the privileged few to others. I’m just pointing out that as long as governments exist to pick winners and losers, there will be winners on grand scale. Whether that’s a defense contractor who lives in a grand estate and soaks the American taxpayers by controlling the monopsonistic jet fighter market, or the Queen of England, some people will always game the system better than others.

Ha, that’s right outside the Tower of London. That’s one of the best views of the city at night.

Yeah, we do.

But hey, if you think anarchy is so cool you can always move to Somalia. I hear they don’t even have gun laws or anything!

Somalia doesn’t have anarchy in the sense of a stateless society; they have simply reverted to tribal government following a military dictatorship that was overthrown inconclusively.

Anarchism is so often misrepresented, and this is a classic case. Don’t conflate a power vacuum (as in Somalia) where multiple parties vie for power, with a culture that methodically reduces the centralized state and pushes decision making down to the individual level.

Anyhow those guns are sweet. I want one.

Cray is short for Crazy. I was quoting the chorus from one of the singles off the Watch The Throne – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfM_wS7qYfY

Thanks.
It sounds like “That shit crack”, but what the hell do I know, I can’t stand any of this new “gangsta” rap shit.

BDP, NWA, and Public Enemy any day for me, :) Or Candiria

You do know how overwhelmingly offensive this is to the men and women that have fought and died for the Royal Family, and to the citizens of the Commonwealth?

Oh and by the way:

Big fucking deal, so Prince Harry is a soldier… so are 200,000+ others over there. Why should I (we) worship him like he’s better than the rest? I stand buy what I said. Once Prince Harry, or anyone from the rest of the royal family accomplishes anything noteworthy i’ll give credit where credit is due, and jump on the bandwagon of promoting whoever that is.
