then go to Europe, my ancestors fought so we didn't have the tyranny of Monarchy you ungrateful anarchonism
@Waffles731 Well, yes, tyrannies like Belgium, Britain, Australia, Denmark - just a random sampling of monarchies. Alternatively, democracies like Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, etc. - all republics.For the record, tyranny can take either monarchical or republican form. The point regarding constitutional monarchy being that it has been a strikingly stabilizing force, particularly in Europe. However, it must be appropriate to the culture and history of the society where it exists - I would not recommend it for the United States, for example.That said, you analysis is superficial, your tone hysterical to the point of rabid, and your knowledge of history is seemingly non-existent. Beyond that, I'd take your advice in a heartbeat.
yes, Tyrannies like the U. K, the Catholics of Northern Ireland who were put in concentration camps during operation Demetrius wouldn't appreciate your flippant tone
@Waffles731 Oh, well, if we are looking for republics that have behaved badly, how about Native Americans vis-a-vis the United States. For that matter, Jim Crow.Neither monarchy nor republic is an assurance of moral perfection.
"Oh, well, if we are looking for republics that have behaved badly, how about Native Americans vis-a-vis the United States. For that matter, Jim Crow."The Indian Wars pretty much ended in the late 19th century.The U. K pulled out of Northern Ireland military wise in 2007
@Waffles731 Actually, the Good Friday agreement was signed in 1998. In any case, there is a Protestant majority in the the north. The IRA is throwing the bombs - and I say that as a Catholic.In any case, if you enjoy republics behaving badly - North Korea will do nicely. Where would you rather be - Pyongyang or Belfast?
North Korea fits the bill as an absolute monarchy...
I'm not sure where you got the asinine idea that its even close to being a republic.
and yes, they pulled out in 2007https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Banner
@Waffles731 Okay, how about China? All those Uighars in what amount to concentration camps. How about Russia? Those journalists pushed out of windows. The Central African Republic. (Note the name.) Rated by the U. N. as the worst place on Earth to be a child. Iran. Speaking of window pushing - how about all those homosexuals.Suffice to say, I could go on. You have many choices for republics that are.. well... less desirable than say, oh, Sweden for example.
Russia is an oligarchy and near dictator ship,China IS a dictatorship
Oh, and as for North Korea - it is the People's Democratic REPUBLIC of Korea. Give them the benefit of the doubt.
its an absolute monarchy, the name is meaningless
@Waffles731 Well, that's nice. As you wish. I won't bother you with the taxanomic distinctions. Suffice to say, if North Korea does not fill the bill, there is always China or Russia, among many others.The point being - getting back to the question - that monarchies and republics can be dictatorships or they can be democracies. Indeed, at the moment, there are in the world more republics that are dictatorships - and rather unpleasant ones - than there are monarchies.The simple Manichean distinction that you are trying to draw does not conform to the reality. Indeed, read your Burke. Even the American revolution is more complicated than the monarchy/republic dichotomy that you oversimply seem to perceive it as being.
