Game of Thrones: Is Monarchy Ethical?


     "I am the State," Louis XIV said. "I am the Podcast," Michael replied. So began a debate for our times, on a very special, very Canadian episode of Thought Fuzz, in which our hosts tackle one of the most esteemed of national institutions -- no, not maple syrup, not hockey, nor even socialized healthcare. The subject: the House of Windsor, the monarchy of Canada. What is it good for? Why have it? Canadians tell themselves their country is celebrated the world over for its progressive leaning, its inclusive society, and forward-looking ideals and political system; yet we retain hereditary, unelected rule.
