We follow the pomp and circumstance. The pageantry, the horses, the trumpets, the wigs! The furs, the helmets, the capes and flags!

Once upon a time, we shared those important values and guiding tenets in our own governmental transitions. We can only hope we’ll find our way back to them one of these days.
