This was supposed to go up yesterday, but my dental situation is not stable and vicoden is my friend until Monday when I can go under the drill. So you get it today.

Exhibit A: A Royal Idiot

The Prince of Wales has never been a man to suffer from a lack of enemies, from modern architecture to intensive farming. Yesterday, however, he declared war on a new — but also ancient — adversary: the Enlightenment.

Even by the Prince’s standards, his opposition to the system of beliefs that came to dominate thinking in the 18th century and has held sway ever since is an ambitious one, if a little tardy.

Long regarded as the foundation of contemporary political and intellectual culture, by way of influences ranging from the American Declaration of Independence to the scientific method as embraced from Isaac Newton on, the Enlightenment was based on the belief that all society’s ills could be vanquished by the application of reason.

Its seminal figures included the likes of Descartes, Leibniz, Locke, Voltaire and Rousseau. To Prince Charles, however, it is old hat. “I was accused once of being the enemy of the Enlightenment,” he told a conference at St James’s Palace. “I felt proud of that.”

Exhibit B: Proof that I do ever so much love it when an idiot gets the tongue lashing he deserves.

Yes, the heir to the throne has declared war on the Enlightenment. Cheerless Charlie Chuckles is a well of pissulence that never runs dry. He truly is a twatmeistering cunt-bugle of the very first water. When he isn’t building Potemkin villages or talking to organic vegetables or wishing he was an unattractive woman’s tampon he is being over six feet (I never knew they stacked shit that high in Windsor) of national embarrassment in a double-breasted jacket and uttering pearls of wisdom such as this.

    Rousseau’s ideas have resulted in utopian insanity being used as an excuse for democide.

    It takes a do-gooder to murder millions.

    The Prince of Wales is smarter than this jackass gives him credit for.

    Methinks you might want to also give a read to what else besides Rousseau the majestic malarkey machine is objecting to before labeling Nick a jackass.
