Riddikulus!

“Pageantry and show, the parade of crowns and coronets, of gold keys, sticks, white wands and black rods; of ermine and lawn, maces and wigs, are ridiculous when men become enlightened, when they have learned that the real object of government is to confer the greatest happiness of the people at the least expense.”
– John Wade, The Black Book; Or, Corruption Unmasked, 1828.
