The solstice isn't legally binding if it's not consumated

Me: well maybe they're labour and need to get to the hospital

I'm not the haberdasher I'm the haberdasher's son, but I'll be dashing habers 'til the haberdashing's done

Are We Living in Neo-Feudalism?

Well, if you're in Brexitland then feudalism never ended. Nominally there is a parliament run by commoners (who happen to be overwhelmingly rich and privately schooled), but the crown still exercises considerable influence in a lowkey way throughout the whole society.

Even in places which transitioned to a republic, feuding didn't end and it was only the strictly hereditary ruling dynasty aspect which did. The ruling family legitimated by “divine right” is replaced by a more general ruling class legitimated by periodic votes. Feuding dynasties with competing hereditary claims become feuding sections of the ruling class, like megacorporations, with voters being cheerleaders or one or the other power base. And the megacorporations can feud over more than market share, resulting in colonial wars.

One night to be confused
One night to speed up truth
One night up bring them all
And in the darkness bind them
