While everyone is scrambling and in a panic about midterm elections and whether or not their party will get enough votes to make it out victorious, we should all remember a time when our interestest were ultimately protected without waver. There was once a time when a child was born into a role, where they are raised solely to be a leader for the people of their nation and to protect their interests.
If we look back into our history, the absolute dystopia that we in the United States are devolving into could only be established if average people are left to their own devices. When the option to opt out of or change a civil society to suit the few, and destroy it for the many is present, we arrive at the modern world.
While monarchy still exists today as a form of government in several different countries, they are stripped down into what is referred to as a constitutional monarchy. This simply means that the royal family is simply viewed as a sort of head of state, but not a maker or enforcer of the law. Elected officials are given that privilege.
It has become abundantly clear that in any sort of republic or democratic society, there is no shortage of corruption. While various parties bicker at each other seeking the approval of their constituents, they are eventually either voted out or reach a term limit if applicable. Often, these politicians leave office stained by corruption or with many unfulfilled promises to their people. When you compare the stats of countries under monarchal control compared to those ran by elected officials, the corruption rate is nowhere near an even level. Even today, Transparency International’s corruption perceptions index puts 7 monarchies in the top 10 countries for the absence of corruption.
The Uniting Of A Nation And Its People
While today's elected officials come and go, a newly crowned king has a lifetime of work ahead of him that he has been preparing for his entire life. There are no term limits. A monarch can think in a much longer timeline of beneficial ways to help the people of the nation, rather than short intermittent terms that are interrupted by elections.
When a rule of law is established without the expectation that if you throw a big enough tantrum, you can change it, it is absolute. During the time of absolute monarchy, political dissidents were punished without hesitation. Remember, it is the king's duty from birth, to know, understand and enact every policy that will benefit his people and the culture of his nation. It is not up to a group of citizens to decide that just because they think they can do it better, that they have any sort of given right to impose that on a peaceful society.
The obvious advantage of installing a right-wing monarchy are many. With the capability to be the one and only voice in decision making, a king would be able to do things such as making abortions unlawful. There is also a much more hard-line approach to protecting the citizens of the nation. Remember, the monarchs only duty is to please and protect its people. Harsh punishments for criminals would be enacted and there would be zero tolerance for foreign invaders or subversion tactics. Judiciaries, much like today's system in the US, would be appointed by the king himself. There will be no fluctuation or ability to change the rule of law after an election.
It has become obvious as humans keep evolving, that some people are born more fit to be a leader. An argument often used against the idea of an absolute monarchist rule is the idea that people supporting this system would only seek this route if they were to become the monarch in the end. This is absolutely absurd, to say the least. The idea that no one who views all of the positives a right-wing monarchy would bring to a society would ever want to live in that society as anything but a king, is outrageous. Based on the growing numbers in the American libertarian movement, people just want to be left alone. They have no interest in seeking any sort of public office.
If you are in favor of the current system of governance then keep voting every so often for some random politician fresh out of law school to maybe pass 2 laws that you wanted them to, only to be undone by their successor when they are not reelected. Politicians are lobbied to by interest groups and are by no means sworn to be obedient to their constituents. A monarch has no other purpose than to be loyal too and protect the people they rule over.
