Interesting David, will we keep her in a box? Bring her out only on ceremoni occasions, like to entertain the little children at Xmas. Will she be embalmed, or all left natural, I prefer the natural look myself.

Issy, me thinks we should make you the royal page, the court jesters job has already been taken.

I find it interesting that under section 44 of our
Constitution a person is not eligible to be elected
to the Parliament if they are under any acknowledgement
of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign
power.

Yet as soon as they are elected to Parliament we require
them to swear allegiance to the head of a foreign power.

Dear Individual,

You wrote :

Banjo Paterson,

How do you think that'd work with the drugged to the eyeballs tattooed & face-studded mutts ? None of whom have any inclination to think of others ?

I know you want a republic but all you can expect to get is Anarchy !

Well, if they respect the Queen, perhaps they might also respect an Australian lady as a head of state.

Perhaps we should elect Foxy for the job.

What do you think, Individual, would that allay your fears of those decorated rascals being incited by Australia becoming a republic instead of a Constitutional Monarchy ?

Dear Banjo,

To be serious. There are so many good
female choices out there who would make excellent
heads of state and I certainly hope that females as well
as males will be included in the mix when the time
comes.

One version of anarchy is people getting together voluntarily to do what needs to be done & then disbanding when it is done. With everyone having respect for each other no government or exterior agency need slot people in necessary tasks. There have been moments in history where this has happened. During the Spanish Civil War there was a strong anarchist movement on the side of the loyalists. The communists saw them as an enemy and destroyed them. George Orwell in 'Homage to Catalonia' writes about it.

The two main meanings of anarchy follow:

1. a state of disorder due to absence or non-recognition of authority or other controlling systems.

"the country has been plunged into a state of anarchy"
synonyms:
lawlessness absence of government nihilism mobocracy [more]

2. the organization of society on the basis of voluntary cooperation, without political institutions or hierarchical government; anarchism.

I hope for the day when we will be able achieve the second version of anarchy in all places. We already have achieved it is some places at some times. We can have order and peace with anarchy.

The anarchist I most admire is Felix Kropotkin. He popularized the term, mutual aid.
