As the world waits with bated breath for the emergence of the latest—and cutest—member of the British Royal Family, allow us to put forth a gentle reminder: In a just world, this innocent child would be going up for adoption, since its family would have been imprisoned for crimes against humanity.

The Royal Family is no better than a family of mobsters. It sucks its sustenance from the public coffers, enriching itself greatly at the expense of poor taxpaying citizens. It operates not as a meritocracy, but through strict nepotism and strategic alliances. And its strength is a rough measure of the lack of civilization in a particular culture. To be completely clear, we are not suggesting that people should "pay less attention" to the Royal Family, or that the UK should reduce the amount of money it spends on this obscene relic of a brutal monarchical past. We are suggesting that the Royal Family should, as an institution, be completely abolished, and that its remaining members be imprisoned and forced to work for the remainder of their lives to, in some token way, repay the public for all of these years of financial support. Perhaps by making license plates, or breaking rocks.
It is amusing to reflect upon the imperial past of England, and the inherent assumptions of racial and cultural superiority that fueled it, while also noting the fact that the UK still to this very day continues to offer slavish financial, political, and cultural support to a tiny family elite notable for nothing except the lineage of the particular person's vagina from which they slunk. The persistence of the Royal Family, and the worshipful attention that it draws from the British public, is the sort of primitive superstitious voodoo that puts to shame any of the animist rituals that the colonial British would have derided as uncivilized.

The Royal Family is more than an international embarrassment, though; it is a crime against the British public. It represents the taking of precious public resources for the most undemocratic, elitist, and unproductive use. It is akin to taxing the American public to support the Kardashian family. Currently, the British monarchy gets 15% of the annual revenues generated by the Crown Estate. (Not to be confused with the slew of luxurious private estatesthat they own.) That will be well over $50 million this year. There are 2.5 million unemployedpeople in the UK right now. It is not too presumptuous to suggest that they might be able to find more productive uses for that money.
It is often suggested that the Royal Family is "affordable" or a "bargain" for taxpayers, because their cost is minor compared to other costs, and besides, they help to "generate tourism." This is incorrect. Tourists would continue to go to the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace whether or not the Royal Family was being subsidized to the tune of tens of millions of dollars annually. Money from the public treasury spent on the Royal Family is a sunk cost, a charity payment to the world's most undeserving charity. The Royal Family does not "work" for that money. The Royal Family does not sit inside Buckingham Palace from 9-5 every day, posing for pictures with tourists for $25 a pop. And even if they were, we certainly wouldn't pay them $50 million a year for that. Six pounds thirty one pence per hour, maybe.
The Royal Family did not "work" to acquire its property. The Royal Family did not "work" to acquire its wealth. The Royal Family did not "work" to acquire its prestige. All of these things have been passed down to them, due to the accident of their birth, after being accumulated over hundreds of years during which the humble citizens of the UK were obligated to give these things to the monarchy, lest they lose their heads. Though European history is littered with thecorpses of royalty, it is littered far more heavily with the corpses of all of the millions upon millions of regular people who toiled in the shadows of grand castles and died in poverty as their taxes paid for the members of one lucky family to live in opulence.

The Royal Family is a grotesque relic of a less civilized time. The only just thing for a member of the Royal Family to do is, at age 18, to renounce all the privileges of their position and spend the remainder of their natural life denouncing the institution of monarchy and working feverishly to repay the public treasury for the outrageous and undignified years of support they've received. Since all of the current members of the Royal Family have passed the age of majority without having performed this basic nod towards civility, they are in contempt of the public trust. Confiscate their wealth, sell off their possessions, lock them up for theft, and strike all appropriations for the Royal Family from the public budget. Auction off the crown jewels, use the money to buy gasoline, and burn the queen's home to ground during a grand national celebration of the birth of a new society in which the public's money is put to use for the public's own benefit, and fame is accorded to those who have earned it by doing something more than being born with the right last name.
For the sake of all that is holy, please allow this Royal Baby to grow up free of the clutches of this crime family, lest its innocence be lost.

  1. I hope you realise that would you are advocating was done during the communists revolution in Russia. I will leave you with that thought.

    1. Yes and look at France and Germany who both have gotten rid of their monarchies and are doing really well without it.

      Sometimes things get worse before they get better. Russia did not become a communist country just because they abolished the monarchy.

      The German government who was at war with Russia in 1917 helped Lenin to get into Russia. The idea behind it was that if Russia had a revolution within the country they would have less energy for the war. (the 1rst WW)

      Sometimes it takes a revolution to get rid of a corrupt regime.

      As far as I am concerned Monarchies should be abolished the moment that they go overboard and no longer feel the need to stick within their own laws. As is the case with the torturing shit in the Netherlands.

      Beatrix has been aware of the torture of my dad (that the very corrupt Dutch shit police is participating in) since 1998. That is a reason to call them corrupt and to get rid of it.

  2. My dad is getting tortured in the Netherlands. I have written to all of the 200 politicians that the country has and received several visits from the nowadays Dutch King Willem-Alexander of Orange. Willem-Alexander was kind enough to apologize for the fact the Dutch secret service AIVD is particpating in the torture of my dad since 1998, he also asked me what I would do with 3 million euro if he gave me that amount of money. Furthermore he wanted to know if I want to become his mistress (it seems to be perfectly normal and accepted for Royals to have a mistress, look at the examples in England - Charles, in the Netherlands - Bernhard, in Zweden - Carl Gustav, and in Belgium - former King Albert). Since I said no to the mistress request, the torture of my dad keeps going on. This visit was in September and November of 2010 plus in June of 2011.

    So what I am saying is this: The Dutch Royal family did not organize the torture themselves but they have been fully informed about it for years and did nothing to stop it.

    I totally agree that Monarchies are medieval and undemocratic and should be done with.

    1. Your a liar. Who would the King want to buy you off. Come on and I am sleeping with one of the Queen's granddaughters

  3. By the way Maxima is an arrogant shit who during a totally unannounced surprise visit in June of 2011 on a terrace in Germany actually had the gall to demand an apology from me because she felt not well enough received.

    Despite of the fact the fucking corrupt regime that she is part of has been torturing my dad since 1998. The lying monster wants me to suck up to her but does not even take the time to make an appointment. And also I have a German passport and was sitting on a terrace in Germany when I received these surprise visits.

    So if anyone wants to fuck Willem-Alexander: He has a vacancy for a mistress and Maxima deserves to be put in her place. She is liar just like her dad.

  4. Chop chop the fkn lot

  5. Edith, I despair upon learning about both yours and your father's situation. I can only hope that by signing your petition ( I have gone some way towards improving the state of your situation. I cannot believe the nerve displayed by the Dutch monarchy in regard to the terrible circumstances you find yourself in. These are dark times, and my support and thoughts are with you now. I wish I could do more.

  6. Hang the lot of them. The queen is a bloody cu^t and her spawn are chav gutter filth!
