A French peach that squeals when touched and shudders when stroked is believed to be part animal and part fruit.

From the Duluth Herald, 1906.

I was talking about the state of the union
How there's no one now in power who's thinking of me
I was thinking how we ought to try to fix it
Find a leader who is not afraid to be

Then a voice called out in the darkness
Saying, "Tear the system down"
Oh, tear it down

I was thinking about how that was very crazy
And I tried to find a way to tell him so
But when I did, I used a word that was quite nasty
How the policeman heard me, man, I'll never know…

South Korea blasts loudspeakers in response to trash balloons

I wonder what happened, if the whole of India, Indochina and beyond somehow smoked the trash 'balloons' we keep selling them for bucks (instead of us, ourselves smokin' them).

That doesn't make him a monarchist any more than I would be a fascist under a Trump presidency.

After years of having arguments with you on this board, I'd rather not- instead I'd prefer a relaxed verbal exchange, even though that may be utopic.
When I mentioned monarchy as a viable form of government, I didn't get to relay all the nitty-gritty details that monarchies we know (the last couple thousand years) have been missing... anyway, at least you got a hint now. A full responsibility of the monarch for their people reigns supreme in that theory. Very similar to that of communism which never was practiced but only theorized by Lenin and the likes. The Bolshewik (per-)version doesn't prove communism wrong, as living monarchies don't prove monarchy wrong, either. - Someone I value spoke of spiritual socialism. ... Call me anything for this my craziness, but I strongly despise the current "maelstroem" of capitalism that is relentlessly feeding on Mother Earth and us all, the root-cause of which being the wants for more and more money and material gains by any individual or state (see Lenin). There should be enough for us all, when distribution fits.

That currently most certainly implies taxing the rich.

But this alone doesn't help, so long as the governments of the world are as corrupt as they are. ... So it is something to wish for in my view, and now all you single-celled brains here can go ahead again and keep calling me an idiot hunting unicorns, etc.

So again, a second time I go by your request - and you bug out. While you managed to polish your surface in discussion as compared to a few years ago, your basis still seems unmoved towards any amity. Warmongering, provocations and "less" insults than before, instead.

An observation from my end.
