It is a legal, institutional oligarchy: there’s nothing else to it; there are nobles, and then there is you, the second-class citizen, obliged to respect an absurd social hierarchy, obliged to pay increased taxes, so as to prevent your social mobility, to contribute towards a sector of society whose standing is completely ruled by inheritance, and not by merit; in some parts of Britain, you don’t even have the right to own land as a commoner, you can only rent from a landlord over a long yet limited period of time, how ridiculous is that?
But maybe I wouldn’t stand it because I have self-respect, a fundamentally different social perspective, and I believe in complete democracy regardless of its difficulties, I reject allegiance to any other person based on social standing alone.
I admire merit though, and I believe everyone must be given a chance to prove his own.
So long live all Republics of the world, and all Republics to be!
Even if they function deficiently, they continue to be fundamentally superior, because no other form of state can provide true equality.
I am a Republican, of that I am sure, and I despise any form of adulation towards a monarch, which this morally diseased (Republican!) society of mine tends to impose through the mass media, this being the reason for this short declaration.
I reaffirm my belief that the French Revolution has been the most humane event these last few centuries in the West, not for its immediate and brutal consequences, which were mostly causal, but for its call to freedom in all conscious minds.
Liberté, égalité, fraternité!
