|The faithful few honor the emperors
|Changing of the guard ceremony
|The "Emperor" attracts a crowd
In any event, I just thought this was interesting and one of the first things that occurred to me was how much I would like to make the republicans in Britain and on the continent of Europe familiar with this story. Get rid of your already mostly ceremonial monarchies now and within a few years you will just be paying actors to dress up and play “let’s pretend” and going through all the motions of having a monarchy anyway. What a waste that would be.
