    I took a moment to watch this and reflected on this great man and burst into tears again in remembrance.

    God is now dead; but he will return one day and all the believers will rejoice in paradise.

    How boring. Highlander, you need to improve the quality of your contributions to this forum.

    Why don't you post something interesting from Korea, such as this:

    If you have some free time, read this:

    (You might want to skip over the first few pages, which focus mostly on trains. The guy who undertook this trip did so partly because he's a train aficionado.)

    We do the same thing over here when a queen or king dies. Only kidding, we just raise a single eyebrow, sup our collective tea and then get out the home made funeral bunting.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Lolz this is so fake it hurts. I thought it was funny how obviously staged it was when over a million of his people visited - forced of course - his burial and then I see this.

    Dictatorsips at it's best.

    Although I am anti-monarchy for so many reasons - mainly because it creates a class system which inevitably creates a lower class which would either have to live that way for the rest of their lives or die trying to be better or pretend to be otherwise - the symbolism of a monarchy could serve a country well; because it serves as a cultural icon. A popular cultural icon with good ideals could do a lot to a nation.

    The Japanese cultural icon/monarchy seems to have changed the nation for the best. Once a homicidal, racist, inhumane nation that tried to take over the world and rape all the women, now has turned into a nation of hard working, honest industrialist who try to become - and is - a world's economic power. And I believe the monarchy has a lot to do with it; although it is the same monarchy that caused so many massacres and human right's violations in the world.

    European monarchies currently seems to serve that purpose; of course all thanks to Richard the third.

    Dictatorships however are never the same.
