Re: founding fathers or traitors?
The Queen should send congratulations all of Brtain's ex-colonies on their respective national days if you ask me.
That said, Long Live the Queen.
"But certain interests of particular people are so important that it would be wrong - morally wrong - for the community to sacrifice those interests just to secure an overall benefit. Political rights mark off and protect these particularly important interests. A political right, we may say, is a trump over the kind of trade-off argument that normally justifies political action." - Ronald Dworkin (RIP)
