Great Britain's Prince Harry made worldwide headlines recently after multiple photos surfaced of him cavorting with Las Vegas showgirls while nude. Prince Harry, now 27, has been making such headlines regularly since a teen.
The trouble with Prince Harry of Great Britain is the selfsame trouble often present in those possessed of excessive wealth, privilege and entitlement throughout human society, but most especially in the capitalist West.
Whether a manipulative Wall Street baron who drew down millions annually while dishonestly inflating a housing bubble that finally burst, destroying the dreams of millions of Americans, or Britain's young Prince Harry showing his drunken and disorderly arse (literally) in a Las Vegas hotel, these people feel their entitlement allows them to play by a differing set of rules than the rest of us.
What this world needs is a thoroughgoing socialist revolution in which wealth and privilege are leveled by whatever measures are necessary to achieve the goal of eliminating egregious cases of excess from the human scene.
The British royal family, a constitutional monarchy that serves no useful purpose beyond pageantry anyway, should be eliminated. Their vast holdings of real estate and other wealth, as well as their excessive entitlements, should be distributed amongst their long-suffering subjects.
The world of the 21st Century has no place for kings and queens and other societal leeches whose only charge is to party hardy when young and open parliament with boring prepared speeches when old.
