    Thoughts on Monarchies in the 21st Century?

    Tell that to Americans. Feel you on the rest.

    Thoughts on Monarchies in the 21st Century?

    I speak from a limited viewpoint on English politics, but I live in and area of the US that has a large portion of Brits living here temporarily. When the topic of royalty or politics comes up, there seems to be near unanimous approval of the Queen and fairly split approval of any other partisan political figure. I'm not saying individual politicians are not hardworking, I'm saying it must be nice to have a head of state that isn't villainized because of party lines. Not seeing how I'm being contradictory. I'm definitely not trying to be inspiring lol. I'd never enjoy a United States under monarchial rule - even if it was only in name only.

    Thoughts on Monarchies in the 21st Century?

    I think you'll be hard pressed to find someone in support of monarchies, even if you asked this question 100 years ago. Most modern monarchies have held only the most tenuous of grasps on their titles ever since the late 18th and early 19th centuries, with the exception of Japan until the mid 20th century. In fact, I'd wager that most of the people of the world through the history of kingdoms and empires didn't really hold much stock in their rulers. Fear and force would keep people in line. Maybe shame and religion too. But I feel the era of mass media made people realize how unimportant royal families truly are, and that's why we saw a large collapse of monarchies in the 1800s to be replaced by parliamentary systems, constitutional governments, and other elected forms of rule. That said, I personally, I think the title of King or Queen or Emperor can have an extremely powerful role in maintaining a national identity. From my limited knowledge of various kings and queens (and reinforced by what Yuanrang said above), an apolitical figurehead of a country would be able to unite an otherwise split populace. For example, from this outsiders view, in England you either love or hate Boris Johnson. But, God save the Queen. As an American, it would be kind of nice to have a neutral third party that everyone can look up to. I know my viewpoint isn't what you asked for, but I figured I'd share anyway.

    Will update you in.... a couple years. Once I finish book 3 I have a long line of others to get back to. These have been my first real fantasy books since I was a kid, so it's a nice deviation from my standard reading fare.

  14. heb0 responded to a post I made on reddit a few days ago. Said he lost his password unfortunately. Other names off the top of my head: Gonza Man The Evil Bunny Easl redmonke WolfieMario Some more looking through old posts: Mr E goglmogl Cake Ptolemy Da Scotsman Tawk Real reap- Edit: Looking at the leaderboard can't forget Twist of Fate, Arianna, Click This, and the OG top poster, Cxkslei. Lots of nostalgia seeing some avatar pics. Lilshu's avatar will be forever ingrained in my mind, same with Macki. Arianna's former ava is really nostalgic. heb0 always changed his with the seasons I believe. Before he changed his stuff, redmonke's pic rings a bell. Adam? and Click This are classics. Kind of weird I still have parts of my brain dedicated to remembering these things...
