In order to dissuade many of the idea that the popularity of the news of the pending nuptials between an unemployed girl and a soldier from a welfare family is any evidence of the impact of any Hoppean advantages (Political Economy of Monarchy and Democracy by Hans Hoppe), I would suggest many of them have been lost on Merry England since well before the days of Churchill (Rethinking Churchill by Ralph Raico).
I might grant the point if one were speaking of Monaco or Liechtenstein. The Monegasque enjoy no income tax and a higher life expectancy than the citizens of the United States. Liechtenstein’s gross national income per capita is the highest in the world, double Australia, and 320% of New Zealand’s. Strong banking and machinery-export sectors power this tiny monarchy.

But, this is just the pomp and circumstance of an unemployed English girl that is to wed a soldier from a welfare family well skilled in theft and coercion. However, I certainly hope them both well and that they do eventually find productive endeavors.
Anyway, London’s mayor, Boris Johnson, was quite correct when he stated: “In a weird way, it cheers everyone up.” Weird indeed as we consider the politics of obedience and voluntary servitude.
