So why should we care? The English monarchy doesn’t do anything and we are Americans. I think the following reasons are worth noting:
- For once someone wasn’t talking about Trayvon and how evil white people are.
- I would rather see the news talking about monarchies than the Kardashians (go find the famous CS Lewis quote to this effect).
- For all of its values, a republican government isn’t self-evidently the best. Monarchy can function as an epistemological critique on this decline of the American order.
- As someone who believes in the Solemn League & Covenant, even if I cannot approve of the Royal family’s religious views, I feel politically connected to them, even if in a negative ay.
