I've been told a few times that I will be on the wrong side of history. This is usually by people who are proud to be on the wrong side of eternity.
--I--This post is somewhat amusing and somewhat informative: meaning, Mr Mike Flynn wrote it.
--II--The former prefect of the CDF--Cardinal Levada (formerly an archbishop of the Portland archdiocese)--has retired, and now we have a new prefect.
--III--In some western countries, the royalty (and/or aristocracy) actually govern, if only via veto. In Liechtenstein--"the smallest yet the richest (by measure of GDP per capita) German-speaking country in the world"--that veto is used to uphold the moral order, and in turn to keep the most basic of all liberties intact. Of course, in that country the populace also recognizes and supports this right.
