'The glorifications of monarchy and aristocracy'

Reading the Brandon Sun’s Saturday, Aug. 4 First World War “Memorial Edition” issue, the articles (both old and new), and the editorial, and all the glorifications of monarchy and aristocracy, I figured a letter arguing against such hereditary over-privileged elites and the glorification and tolerance of them is needed.

The First World War and most wars (especially large-scale ones) have NEVER been truly about “protecting the people” or their freedoms, quite the opposite actually. These wars are ALWAYS started and fought to protect the privilege of those with excess wealth and power already, especially the monarchs/royals and the aristocracy. They sacrifice millions, billions of innocent poorer lives (their serfs/slaves ... the poorer). We even call “terrorists” those that would try and thwart this corrupt, inhuman, insane institution of hereditary privilege (monarchy, aristocracy, etc.) and the people are propagandized to be their willing slaves and sacrificial lambs! Even in today’s world, we still stupidly do this, even inculcating children from birth to gleefully glorify and submit to this slavery and honour these self-appointed masters (the kings, queens, princes, princesses, aristocratic hierarchy, undeserved hereditary over-privilege of every sort) to treat them as exalted, sacred, untouchable gods!

For example, the editorial mentioned how the First World War began as a result a aristocratic monarchist over-privileged Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated! Thousands more examples can prove how most of our world’s injustice and war and mass deaths have been and continue to be done to preserve monarchy, aristocracy and hereditary over-privilege. These ungrateful, disgraceful sociopaths we allow to enslave us, whom we murder and die for, are leeches — a cancer upon the species. And the wars taking place across the globe are still for these monsters’ benefit!

We must band together, rise up and take back our rights, freedoms, dignity, justice and our world from them. Preferably by peaceful means, but if necessary (and it may be) by force! This can only happen when the majority of humanity WAKES UP and unites to do it — and soon. Before there’s no more chance, before they’ve oppressed and manipulated us all into killing ourselves and our world.

So in light of the First World War memorial and the honour of these spoiled psychopaths: “Lest we forget.”
