Today, and despite the hot weather warnings (of 34 degrees Celsius), we woke up early on a Saturday morning and headed out to Hampton Court. Obviously, we are not ‘Royalists’ in the literal (or political) sense, but part of our progressive education for our Socialist children is the studying of history in its entirety. In this regard, we follow in the footsteps of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. The past must be correctly understood from a dialectically beneficial position that serves the general welfare of the masses. We have often thought how great a King or Queen would be, if they used their Royal Authority to ‘decree’ Socialism throughout the land that they ruled! Of course, this would mean the loss of absolute rule, but such a King or Queen would go down in history as a working-class hero! Now, I am not suggesting that Henry VIII was such a monarch, after-all, he was (as expected) a dialectical manifestation of the era within which he lived, but he did wield the political power (as an absolute monarch) that the working class will one day take for themselves! Needless to say, today we unfurled the Red Flag of freedom in the Young Henry Exhibition being held at Hampton Court Palace. We timed this to occur between clusters of tourists and when the guardians of the exhibits were not looking! We also sat on the Royal Thrones and ‘took’ the power for ourselves! Long Live the Revolution!
