Charles II Haiku

Forget throwing off

Shackles of kings, for I come

Bearing parties, booze.

On this day, 358 years ago, Charles II landed in Dover, ending the Commonwealth and bringing the fun back to England. What I take from this is that if you want an audacious change in government to stick, allowing for the occasional party probably wouldn’t hurt.

For example, say what you want about the US (I certainly will), but throughout most of their history, their people could and would throw damned good parties – even when alcohol was banned. Thus, they have lasted since 1776. Soviet Union? Less parties, and look where they are now. Oh, wait.

My theory of the role of parties in history is unassailable.
