I actually think many people support the idea of a monarchy, as preferable to some pack of supermarket market share rebels processing society like frozen peas, so then defer to the traditional unspoken bullshit that we know is religions mythology enshrined in the historical stonemasonry dotting our landscape.

Few have the balls to chat about this like sane adults. Therefore sane adults are very much offensive to the status quo. Thinking with absolute honesty and sincerity feels more like a complete joke, in this life we all share, the more time you spend doing it. Power is not listening. What sort of role model does that enforce on the subjects?

The message seems loud and clear. Truth and honesty are but objections that need squashing!
