Could you explain your support for constitutional monarchy, specifically as it applies to the UK? What are your thoughts on the elitism and class issues that arise from a hereditary aristocracy?

The greatest and most pervasive lie of the Enlightenment was to convince intelligent people that All Men are Created Equal. Now, before you burn me on the pyre of Social Justice, stow your torch and think about it. If you remain unconvinced, try and ask the Queen to coffee, get a date with Margot Robbie, run the 100-meter against Usain Bolt, debate Einstein on Physics, or Wittgenstein on metaphysics. 

Some people are born beautiful, others intelligent, athletic, or rich. Thanks to the Enlightenment, and the modern notion of universal equality, we all die trying to partake in their wealth, beauty, intelligence, influence, or (my personal favorite) athletic prowess, rather than taking pride and making use of the few gifts and opportunities we have.

If you told a polio-ridden child in an impoverished and backward corner of the globe that he was equal to Bill Gates, he would laugh in your face, and rightly so, you foolish American. (Is “foolish American” a redundancy?)

The only way in which each and every one of us is equal is in the beautiful yet politically and socially untranslatable imprint of the Imago Dei, the Image of God. 

Because of this, we have to order these natural hierarchies of wealth, education, and privilege toward the social good. An hereditary aristocracy is a class bred for and dedicated to the promotion of the common good, the maintenance of the social order, and the well-being of the Polis. Are there abuses? Yes, just like in any human institution. 

If you find yourself violently ill at this concept, I would ask you; what kind of world do you think you live in? Your illusion of democracy is a mess of corrupt or misguided bureaucrats controlled in turns by vapid celebrities, greedy oligarchs, and the misguided opinions of the ignorant proletariat. Except Trump, who happens to be a greedy oligarch, a vapid celebrity, and yet somehow manages to remain an ignorant prol

So on to the Monarchy, to those who think it is obsolete fail to realize that a King (or Queen) can achieve something that a President or Prime-Minister never can. As an non-elected figure, a monarch can serve as a critical unifying force. Except in cases of dictatorship, a President is merely the pawn of the majority party and as such, is loathed by nearly half the country. The monarch’s actual power is less relevant than his or her perceived status as the Head of State. The importance of this cannot be overstated. 

That was rather long.

So, Amanda, Robbie, what do you guys love to do together?

“We just… I dunno… Sibling stuff…?” -Robbie

“He runs with me sometimes, and he braids my hair, he gets me cups when I can’t reach them so dad doesn’t have to, and stuff like that!” -Amanda

If NoA want’s forced memes, i’ll give them forced memes.

I replied to the recent twitter post with ‘I want Robbie to run’ in hopes that someone sees it and does the same in order for NoA to stop putting memes into their localizations.

It sad and probably not going to work, but I do have some hope that it’ll work.

Farah named by Tigers for NRL trial

All Stars no show Robbie Farah will run out for the Wests Tigers in Saturday night’s NRL trial against Melbourne on the Sunshine Coast.

Farah had initially been picked to feature in the World All Stars side that will tackle the Indigenous team on Saturday night at Suncorp Stadium.

However, the hooker withdrew from the showcase event because he had won a ticket to see Monday’s Super Bowl 50 in the United States.

He reportedly paid $15,000 in a charity auction to win a seat at the Super Bowl played at Levi’s Stadium, home of Jarryd Hayne’s San Francisco 49ers.

Farah instead will don the Tigers’ colours at Sunshine Coast Stadium at Kawana Waters this weekend after being named in a strong squad that also features recruits Jordan Rankin, Tim Grant, Josh Aloiai and Jesse Parahi.

Ten players who featured in the NRL Auckland Nines last weekend - including other off-season signings Josh Addo-Carr, Michael Chee Kam, Rod Griffin and Jack Littlejohn - have also been named.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing a lot of the guys play, in particular some of the new recruits who will get their first run of the year this weekend,” Tigers coach Jason Taylor said.

“We’ve done some really good work in training with plenty of opposed sessions, which aimed at putting us under the pressure of game situations, but there’s nothing like actually playing an opposition team.

"Coming up against the Melbourne Storm, who are strong side, will give us a much better feel for how things are going once we get this game under our belt.”

Tigers trial squad: Jordan Rankin, David Nofoaluma, Nathan Milone, Michael Chee Kam, Josh Addo-Carr, Mitchell Moses, Luke Brooks, Tim Grant, Robbie Farah, Dallas Graham, Josh Aloiai, Kyle Lovett, Jesse Parahi, Justin Hunt, Jacob Liddle, Watson Heleta, Rod Griffin, Lamar Liolevave, Manaia Cherrington, Jack Littlejohn, Billy McConnachie, JJ Felise.
