Friday July 25, 2008 I looked up the lyrics of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” According to the Wikipedia article, Chaka Zulu is sleeping and will awaken when his people really, really need him. Like Arthur, Barbarossa, and Charlemagne. And, according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_in_the_mountain, umpteen other royals and non-royals.
Google also led me to a monarchist anarchist article: http://www.rosenoire.org/essays/sleeping-king.php
The concept of monarchist anarchism hurts my brain.
“There seems to me no question that the Batman film ‘The Dark Knight,’ currently breaking every box office record in history, is at some level a paean of praise to the fortitude and moral courage that has been shown by George W. Bush in this time of terror and war.”
After that, it gets kind of silly.
