An article in the Smithsonian Magazine described recent evidence regarding the 1918 Romanov royal family murders during the Bolshevik revolution. The story also related that there are actually many Russians today who (after 90 years of Communism and “Democracy”) want the Monarchy back.

“The monarchy is a romantic idea,” says French historian Mireille Massip, an expert on White Russian exiles. “Democracy is not popular, because democrats turned out to be total losers. Communists aren’t popular. Monarchism is seen as something fresh and fashionable.”

Despite evidence to the contrary that you should not put your hope in human leadership, we always come back to expecting human perfection and competence. But what we get are more losers.

There was only one Superman.
