Since this falls between July 1 and July 4, I thought I might as well make it here.

Recently I've discussed the concept of Universal Monarchy under Charles V and previous Holy Roman Emperors such as Charlemagne, Frederick I and Frederick II, the closest to the Roman imperial ideal in the West anyone came to since the Fall of Rome in the 5th Century. Yet today an argument can be made that the British monarchy and the Commonwealth with HM Queen Elizabeth II as its head is what may come closest to the ideal of Universal Monarchy.

The UK and the Commonwealth Realms presently make up 16 nation-states. These are the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and a host of others in the Western Hemisphere (Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Grenada, Jamaica, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines) and the South Pacific (Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu). What I'm going to touch on here is the Crown, Commonwealth and the question of race.

There is a shared history and inheritance among many of these nations and others as well. The peoples of North America, Australia and Southern Africa of British and in general European descent became indigenised in those lands. As have those of African descent in the Western Hemisphere. The inheritance of British America is shared between the Commonwealth nations of the Western Hemisphere on one hand and the USA on the other.

All of these nations owe their existence to British colonisation. As do Australia, New Zealand and others mentioned here. It cannot be rejected or denied, because doing so would deny one's national existence. It is different in other Commonwealth nations in Asia and Africa, as colonialism took over pre-existing political and general civilisational structures, so they may not owe their national identity and existence to what was created by Britain as such. But the countries of the "core" Commonwealth - Australia, New Zealand and Canada - do. As do those in the Caribbean and the Pacific that presently have the Queen as their head of state.

What the British monarchy does, above all else, is symbolise the common inheritance and tradition of these nations and peoples. We have a common language and common law. Our countries have similar systems of government. Even countries outside the Commonwealth, namely the USA, inherits part of this tradition through Common Law.

These are things that must bound our communities together. The race-hustlers of today trading on "black pain and white guilt" - people like Diane Abbott, Maxine Waters, et al - are promoting hate and division. People like Candace Owens, on the other hand, are promoting a message of hope and unity. The values and traditions of the English-speaking world are inherited and shared by all regardless of their origin.

We cannot let the arson of identity politics destroy this for all of us. We celebrate what not divides us, but what bounds us together. We do not look back but look forward.

We are all children of the Crown, the Anglosphere, the inheritors of a precious inheritance.

David, would you mind if I shared this on my blog?
'Monarchy can easily be ‘debunked;' but watch the faces, mark the accents of the debunkers. These are the men whose tap-root in Eden has been cut: whom no rumour of the polyphony, the dance, can reach - men to whom pebbles laid in a row are more beautiful than an arch. Yet even if they desire equality, they cannot reach it. Where men are forbidden to honour a king they honour millionaires, athletes or film-stars instead: even famous prostitutes or gangsters. For spiritual nature, like bodily nature, will be served; deny it food and it will gobble poison.' C.S. Lewis God save Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, etc.! Vive le Très haut, très puissant et très excellent Prince, Louis XX, Par la grâce de Dieu, Roi de France et de Navarre, Roi Très-chrétien!
