This post appeared on Boing Boing questioning ‘Why aren’t the Brits more excited about the Royal Birth?‘ compared to the US? Well this film might go to explain a bit why not all ‘Brits’ like the royal family, or buy the propaganda or want tea towels or mugs with George Alexander Louis (After XIV? I’m happy to re-enact the Bastille when he’s older) on them. In fact quite a few Brits don’t really like being subjugated, really.
Surprising facts not just about Philip and the royals you know and love to hate, but also the new breed – their image carefully managed to not seem different. But the first part of Royal Babylon – where Wills and Harry kill small things in amazing abundance – goes way beyond that, even endangered species like Ibis. Also makes Diana seem saintly in her opposition to such things…not a fan of her either, but she did see how badly this all looked to the common man. (video via Scott Cairo)
And yes we don’t have a constitution – or any real control over these parasites…so don’t forgive me if I don’t yahoo along with the Royal Son and all that…because why cheer for something that imprisons us, and is just another drain on the State. A far bigger drain than anybody on welfare, I might add – millions to this fortunate son who just was born in the ‘right’ place. And just to prop up a tired tourism industry – see all the articles about the ‘royal baby boom‘ which lay bare the true link between Church, State, royalty and economy – all about distracting Bread and Circuses spectacle and flogging something, really.
