History Or Savagery?
This fellow, grave robber?, was an old Etonian. Now excellence and breeding are a desirable trait in all creatures, so I have no truck with much of that socialist chip on the shoulder envy and spite, that surfaces when faced with hereditary privilege. However the plundering of another countries' graves and tombs I find uncomfortable. That such body snatching and theft is deemed somehow worthy and important to the present day elite, entirely without conscience or consideration, puzzles me. I suppose it is another example of if you are rich enough anything goes! In the 19th century it was mummy snatching, this century, live footballer buying!
