Vaness Redgrave kneels before Prince William 

Do pay homage to your superior

As the famous English movie star Vanessa Redgrave received the award Bafta (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) from the hands of Prince William, she instinctively knelt to express her admiration for the English Monarchy, represented by the second Heir to the Throne. In a word, she honored her superior.

In this spontaneous gesture born from the heart, more than 1,000 years of History re-sprouted. In effect, a whole historic era of the past was characterized by the superior-inferior bond, reflected in the protection-service contract in each social class and every human relationship.

It was a beautiful application in society of the 4th Commandment: Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother. It should be imitated by each one of us, in due circumstances.

We should not be intimidated by the revolutionary saga, which condemns gestures like Vanessa's as against the democratic spirit of modern man. Many of the customs of modern man are born from pride, egalitarianism and the desire not to serve our natural superiors, who are for us reflections of God. This is an echo of the shout of Satan: Non serviam (I will not serve).

Be an authentic counter-revolutionary: When the circumstance is appropriate,

Do pay homage to your superior
