I'll get back to you in 10 minutes with the answer to that question, after I've done a complete and thorough investigation.

I suppose it is very important to know who are the people near the King's Family, who are their advisers.

Yes but do the past activities of their parents before they were even born really matter?

So, after all, (in Bucharest) the sons should bear the sins of their fathers...

Is is important to know the background of somebody who is very close to the King.

Very critical article indeed using a comparison with Ibsen's works:

„Noua Monarhie“ şi Nora lui Ibsen | Romania Libera

read it - and wish I hadn't, because it was a waste of my time. Is the author a Republican? It would seem so.

Oh dear. If that is the case, there's no chance for any restoration. The Republicans must be delighted.

Once again, the knowledge of who Andy T or anyone else knows, is not yours to possess.

Regarding the blog and actual issue, a 'royalist journalist', as you brand him, is important when it comes to delivering appropriate and important feedback and criticism towards a Royal Family as a whole, or its members.
On the issues, I find that the blog misses slightly when comparing members of the Royal Family and their fate to the character of Nora in Ibsens well-written play 'A Doll's House'. One can always analyze her choices and draw comparisons to events in the Royal House, but in the end, the metaphores would probably be lost on many of those who might read it.

I quite agree with Andy. In the end, the point of the text is seemingly lost in its long-winded way of writing and overuse of easy metaphores and fairly cheap literary tricks, and it does not serve either the monarchist agenda, or aid the republican forces much at all.

In the end, I would say that in order to qualify as a journalist to be taken seriously, one should keep ones own opinions slightly more under the radar, and write more interesting texts that do not lean so one-sided towards either side or a contentious issue. In order to qualify as a 'royalist' anything, one should be able to discuss royalist issues from multiple sides, preferably with more neutrality and generosity to the inherent complexity of the topics at hand, than this person was able to do in his published text.

Marius Ghilezan has always been known as a true royalist and he was close to the most important royalist politician,Corneliu Coposu. Speaking about who is really helping to close the royalist cause this is cettainly not Mr Ghilezan but those that do everything to support a semi-official role of the King's Family in the society without the restoration of Monarchy.

If the "journalist" is indeed a true supporter of a restoration of the monarchy, he should think more carefully about the possible impact of the "articles" he produces.

There are other ways of viewing the strategy of the King's family.

To be royalist means to support the restoration of Monarchy not to agree with strategies that preserve the status quo.

Frankly, Cory, you are the last person on this forum from whom I would take lessons on what being a royalist means.

Probably because first of all there is a need of a definition of what a royalist really is.

Time to move on please, this thread is about Romanian Blogs About Monarchy not a place for personal conversations.

The Romanian blogs do not have a big interest in the question of Monarchy in this moment.
