Authoritarians specialize in lecturing.

Anywho, the article does have a point - if Catalonia goes, it's all over.

So fucking stupid. Any of you who thought the world was moving towards a more mature and civilized time, well fuck you. It's amazing how fast we're moving backwards. There is no way any of this is going to end well. Better start practicing your Mandarin.

I don't see a Chinese ascendancy per se. Balkanization is the future. Even China might split off amongst ethnic lines. If they use force to keep themselves together, Russia will make a move and ink an alliance with whomever is going up against Beijing.

Screw Mandarin, learn how to build a Faraday cage.

You're right Coach. Nothing says moving forward like monarchies and blood lines. Anyone who is mature knows that it's progressive to be a humble and obedient servant to His Royal Highness the King.

The heart of progressive thought is that your life does not belong to you, it belongs to the State.

I just can't believe that it's the year 2017 and we still have kings and queens and crown princes. I mean, seriously? In today's world? LOL! Talk about moving backwards. At least the Catalans voted to form a republic for themselves, instead of having more childish medieval kings prancing around the throne room of a royal palace decked out with gold and jewels while everyone bows down and calls them "Your Highness" or whatever other silly childish nonsense they prefer to be called. The idea of royalty is absurd.

If one wants to do it as an acknowledgement of history, fine. But don't force the taxpayers of your nation to subsidize it. The roles of King & Queen should just be for show at most. If the people putting it on can figure out a non-aggressive way to finance it. Which I doubt they will. Without taxpayer funds, royalty around the world would collapse.

In a war between China and Russia, I'm betting on China.
