    I am related to Richard III as well as Elizabeth I (on her mothers side), but other relatives of mine fought long, hard and successfully to create this country, to make it something fundamentally different from the monarchies of Europe.  My soul is not with monarchs, but with the people that fought to create a new kind of nation.  Now rule of law is optional; a new aristocracy is ascending.  Speculation about Richard III and Henry Tudor is entertaining and I thank Jorybu for the diary, but I live in the present and I was really struck this morning about the regression that has taken, and is taking, place.
