As the UK, and with it some people around the world, prepare for the royal wedding set for tomorrow in London, we thought it would be a good idea to basically consider monarchy and what it is, also how it calls itself and who it claims deep relationship with.
It is no surprise that the call “God save the king” ties two fictional things together, one is the all mighty god, the second is the person this god has made the responsible adult to govern the population of a land. Not surprising is that almost all kings in the modern time have claimed that god itself has choose them to lead their people. But this does not end here… God does not get a second chance at choosing kings, since once he chooses one it is only this kings seed that will continue to rule the land, hereditary spelled all over it, kings knew what they were doing.
So you get kings and queens of all shapes and forms, but they all sprout out of a common gene pool, and only recently have decided to part way with god and let the people know that while they might not enjoy a close relationship with the almighty, they do need someone to pay for their lavish lifestyle, and since god does not sign checks the people need to work hard, because no royal has yet to start a successful business so that the royal family could live off its earnings.
So if you are British you should go out and participate, you are paying a lot of money for this after all, and if you live in a country where kings and queens, princes and dukes still get pocket money from the government (i.e. YOU) you should also watch this thing, because in a way you allow this to happen.
One last thing, there are a lot of people who do not care for the royals in England, however they do cherish the tradition of monarchy, they feel this is a proud English tradition and do not mind paying a couple hundred pounds a year for this hobby, these are the people who will have the most fun out of this wedding. AND – What did kings do before they thought of joining forces with god? they just made sure that they are the strongest and most cruel people around, so that the commoners do not mess with them, they did not need a god by their side as long as the knew how to use a sword.
