A Big Anniversary (Especially for these Games)

Recommended Posts

Today is the 735th Anniversary of the opening of the de Montfort (or Model) Parliament in the Palace of Westminster in Medieval England, the birth of the entire Western electoral representative form of government as we know it now in it's most embryonic state (let's face it, the Greek poli, the Roman Republic, the Northern Italian mercantile Republic, and the Commonwealth of Iceland were not truly governed anything resembling modern Constitutional governments, and were only really retrospectively referenced for inspiration, legitimacy, rhetoric, philosophy, and terminology - which is highly noble and be regarded as strong foundational and bedrock elements - but not actual functional mechanics of governance).
