Dave Lull inquires ...

... "A Canutist would be a good candidate for the FIS, don't you think?" Michael Gilleland thinks "The Canutist would be a good name for a reactionary's blog." But maybe not. Canute didn't actually try to order the tide not to come in. He did what he did in order to demonstrate to his vassals that there were limits to his power. In other words, he was an early advocate for limited government.
As something of a Canutist myself, therefore, I would say that Dave is right. But of course I leave all final decisions in the matter to Bryan.
