mandotim BS: Bishop Suspended - critic of royal wedding (152* d) RE: BS: Bishop Suspended - critic of royal wedding 30 Nov 10

Different logical premise, MtheGM; education has a tangible value to society and the economy, and it is reasonable to expect society to share the burden so the benefits can be realised for the good of all. For example; a childless individual may be paying for the education of the doctors and care workers who look after them in their childless dotage. Royal families and their assorted hangers on do not have any tangible value (beyond rather inferior entertainment) as far as I can see, and indeed the nature of Royal-led patronage in this country could be regarded as a hindrance to progress in our society. It is therefore reasonable to hold the view that society should not share the burden of maintaining their lavish lifestyles. Why not accept that you and your fellow Royalists have one point of view, but it is not shared by everyone? I accept that you hold your view; I don't agree with you, but I'm not trying to shut you up; can you say the same?
