Think of war, murder, rape, pillage, slavery, and theft. Now picture Charles the Third as the chief benefactor. The Windsor family; originally the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family is in reality one of the most violent crime families in human history.
Read thru the wars they have profited from
These brief overviews connote the wholesale slaughter — the outright murder — of tens of millions of husbands, brothers, sons, and friends, to say nothing of the tens of thousands of raped and murdered women and children.
So an elite family could maintain a monopoly on violence, and amass all the riches, castles, and power that come with brutalizing others for nearly 1,000 years.
The Windsor family and slavery
The United Kingdom grew wealthy not because of its vast landholdings or its rich natural resources or its superior work ethic, but because it once dominated a global collection of colonies that were so large that “the sun never set on the British Empire.”
They dominated the Indian subcontinent for nearly a century. In that time, they not only looted the nation of resources like some of the biggest diamonds in history for the Windsor family crowns, but 10+ million people starved to death on thier watch.
Black Slave Trade
Elizabeth II has never acknowledged her family’s involvement in the Black slave trade. The Royal Family enslaved millions of men, women, and children in Africa, America, and the Caribbean
Homeland Slavery: Serfdom
The Windsor ancestors benefited from an insidious slavery well-glossed-over textbooks simply by giving it another name: Serfdom.
The harsh reality is that the United Kingdom has been, for most of its history, a gigantic slave plantation where serfs did the back-breaking work of transforming a rugged island into one of the most beautiful places on Earth, all for the profit of inbred kings and their vampirical aristocracy.
And to this day, the people of Great Britain struggle under the weight of an enormous extractor class, comprised of non-contributing monarchs, aristocrats, London City banksters, House of Lordsmen, and financialized land-lorders.

The Windsor family profited from theft
Every single one of Charles III’s monarch ancestors stole land, houses, and wealth to enrich the royal coffers, much of it still sits in the various and sundry castles and palaces built by slaves/serfs and maintained by servants, vassals, and employees.
Perhaps no one robbed so widely and thoroughly as Elizabeth II’s ancestor Henry VIII. This one despot is responsible for a huge amount of the Windsor family’s current wealth, including Windsor Castle, Hampton Court Palace, St James’s Palace, and a colossal amount of land, art, and gold.
How did Henry VIII amass all these riches? Did he work hard, contribute real value to the commons, and live frugally in order to save prudently? Absolutely not.
Beheading Nuns and Disembowelling Priests
The tyrant robbed the nation blind, sacking nearly 1,000 monasteries over a five-year period, creating 14,000 refugees and killing hundreds of clergy. He then auctioned off their lands, churches, abbeys, and buildings to the local elites in exchange for hard cash so he could go sack other innocents. In total, the lands he stole are now worth tens if not hundreds of billions of dollars.
In other words, much of the basis of the Windsor family’s wealth comes from hanging and beheading nuns and castrating and disemboweling unarmed monks while they were still alive.
The Windsor family still profits from government corruption. The Windsor family’s finances are a moral mess.
Here’s how Elizabeth II makes most of her money:
~She controls a $20+ billion slush fund called the Crown Estate — which is actually owned by the nation — which was assembled through rank injustice over the past two-and-a-half centuries.
The Crown Estate is a massive rent-seeking operation that contributes nothing to society — she literally thinks she owns all the dolphins and swans and seabed and foreshore of the UK — while monopolizing 287,000 acres and extracting $340+ million in profits from the contributor class each year.
~These unearned profits are given to the government. In return, the government pays her nearly $100 million per year. In other words: The Windsor family openly bribes politicians to let them cling to their lofty position and keep a cut of vast amounts of wealth that belong to the British people.
It’s an arrangement seen nowhere else in the world, and it’s one of the most anti-democratic, anti-meritocratic, anti-commons financial arrangements in any Western nation.
The Windsor family still profits from economic exploitation
~The workshy Windsors do one thing, full-time: Rake money off the working class. The Windsor family’s entire business model is based on rent-seeking, a horrible practice that even pro-capitalist folks like Adam Smith saw as a pox on humanity.
The family controls two hundred islands off the coast of Cornwall. The family has dominated the Isles of Scilly for more than 600 years, so that today they own “most of the land and nearly a third of the residential buildings on the islands.”
Thousands of people are stuck as permanent renters under crushing rents with no sense of ownership because a Windsor ancestor robbed or killed someone in the past. Rather than retaining wealth, productive contributors are forced to hand over their hard-earned money to a family that does nothing but extraction.
And this is just one property. Charles III controls more than 135,000 acres, entire cities, farms, estates, neighborhoods, cottages, and houses, all raking tax-free cash into a perpetual trust for private gain with zero inheritance taxes.
The Windsor Crime Family has a billion-dollar trust scheme that rakes tens of millions of dollars off the working class every year, and includes over 45,000 acres, a gigantic mineral portfolio, a dozen castles, and over 300 houses.
Elizabeth II’s actual gold stage coach
The Windsor family still profits from tax havens
Prince Andrew uses tax havens.
Prince Charles uses tax havens.
Harry and Meghan set up 11 companies in tax haven.
And there’s a reason why Elizabeth II has been called Britain’s welfare queen — the depths to which the Windsors are willing to rent-seek and stash the cash offshore runs very deep, indeed.
The Paradise Papers revealed that the gold-throne-owning Elizabeth II had a £10 million offshore stake in furniture rental company BrightHouse, a company known for making the poor pay a poverty premium — up to three times the cash price — just to have a table and some chairs.
A family of faith
What is the Windsor family, exactly?
It is a once-murderous, enslaving, thieving former crime family — one of the biggest in history — now turned nice and polite but still practicing industrial-scale economic exploitation as full-time rent-seekers, whose entire source of income is the extraction of rents, interest, and grift, with the help of national-level bribes. They are leading members of the British extractor class that mines the exhausted contributor class for evermore wealth.
Perhaps the most embarrassing part is that the Windsors claim to be a Chr!istian family.
In fact, the Queen is the head of the Anglican Church, created by Henry the VIII so he could murder his wives and practice rampant adultery.
But has the Windsor family never read the Bible?
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
“Woe to you who add house to house and join field to field till no space is left and you live alone in the land. The Lord Almighty has declared in my hearing: “Surely the great houses will become desolate, the fine mansions left without occupants.”
“If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.”
The Bible forbids interest and land-lording for profit, Christ insists his followers must give up their power over others, and Jesus talks more about money than heaven and hell combined. He is always against the oppressor and he always sides with the poor.
What is the fruit of the Windsor family?
They steal from the nation’s beleaguered coffers.
They rob the poor on a daily basis.
They hoard obscene wealth in the face of crushing poverty.
They wield centuries of unearned privilege.
Perhaps it’s a fruit of how poorly we translated the word pístis as “faith” instead of faithfulness in Bibles, as though faith is just a one-time payment not followed by a lifelong subscription. Sadly, historical Christendom has consistently taken the easy route, requiring a statement of faith instead of an embodiment of faithfulness. True faithfulness is not a statement of belief or a feeling whatsoever — it is a lifetime of radical sacrifice in order to love the weakest members of society.
Opposed to Democrcy
The Windsor family, and every other king who has ever ruled the British Isles, has been vehemently opposed to democracy. To this day, they seek to protect their special privileges, their unearned wealth, and their undemocratic positions of power.
In fact, the family uses a mechanism called Queen’s Consent to twist or straight-up block any law they don’t like, vetting more than 1,000 laws to date. It’s completely anti-constitutional and has been used by Charles to block his hard-working tenant-serfs from being able to buy the homes they’re already paying for.
Thus always to Tyrants
Ancient Rome was once ruled by kings, and when Julius Caesar tried to make himself dictator for life, the elected senators stabbed him to death on the Senate floor, saying “sic semper tyrannis.”
“Thus always to tyrants.”
Elizabeth II has survived a number of assassination attempts, and I, for one, abhor and oppose murder and the death penalty in all cases, including tyrants. That’s why I prefer to paraphrase Rome’s rallying cry another way:
Death to tyranny.
What to do with the Royal Families Stolen Wealth
~Turn all the castles into hotels that are open to the public.
~All 775 rooms of Buckingham and all their hundreds of houses could shelter the homeless
~The endowments hundreds of thousands of acres of land will help build affordable housing for Britain’s 300,000 homeless people — 3X more per capita than in America.
~All the gold and jewels should be sent back to Africa and India, where they can pay to build a better life for those peoples.
~Instead of a net loss of $430+ million per year for British taxpayers, the country could use the savings to feed the nation’s poorest children instead of its greediest family.
~Doing the same thing with the aristocracy, evicting all the dukes and earls from their unearned slave-paid-for mansions, wresting back control of half of the entire British land mass that they currently hoard, and nearly all of central London.
~Eliminate knighthoods, evict every Lord out of the anti-democratic House of Lords, and do away with titles entirely.
Perhaps Britain could even become a real democracy, the first one on planet Earth.
And what would become of the Windsor family?
They could try joining the contributor class and do an honest day’s work for the first time in their lives. So long as they stay out of politics, stop rent-seeking, and stop profiting from centuries of rape, pillage, and murder, it doesn’t really matter what they do.
Oh yes and death to all monarchies.
Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda.
