I wonder why so many people mock this special occasion, it is historic and yet the future too, something all of us should treasure.
Sometimes I get the impression some people would prefer to see two Hollywood celebs get married.
Um, the royal family ARE celebrities, and that's all they are.
And yet, the world would be such a very different place if it were not for the British people and as such, the British monarchy
While it could be argued that without monarchies the world would be a better place (hence, no more British monarchy), I don't understand two things.
A: We're celebrating the descendants of power-hungry royalty. Aren't king's and queen's generally disliked by the working class? (behind closed doors, natually)
B: We're celebrating descendants at all. While their ancestors did things, what does this new generation do that's worthy of recognition? So far they just run around spending their massive inheritance. Why should anyone care?
Maybe your views are skewed living in Thailand though. What a great king you have over there...
(King) Bhumibol is legally considered "inviolable", and insults, claims that he is involved in politics, and criticism of him can result in three to fifteen years in jail
He's also worth 30 BILLION US dollars. Wonder how king's get so rich? That's because they take from you. But hey, royal families, so great!
Plus unlike the Oscars or a Michael Jackson concert, this is historic. Something we should all cherish because once it has gone then the only place our children, and then theirs etc will be able to see such things will be in a museum.
How sad that some people cherish the events of the rich, who are only rich because they've taken from your ancestors.
