The Superiority of Monarchy
topic one - Introduction to Monarchy
The King is The Symbol of The Monarchy, A Leader, A Power, A head of a Kingdom with Divine Right. Monarchy is the longest operating system of government in history and probably the oldest. Before Capitalism, Socialism, Democracy, Communism etc there was Monarchy. One to rule them all, the judge of what was right & wrong and the protector of the people!
There are different types of Monarchies as well. Such as Feudalism, Constitutional Monarchies, Elective Monarchies and Absolute Monarchies. Though these types are different in ways, it is still one on top of the rest. Some may say it’s the most natural form of government ever. "In Hell there is democracy, in Heaven there is a Kingdom" - Saint John of Kronstadt.
topic two - types of monarchies
Feudalism consist of a class tier system of different levels of importance and duty to the Kingdom. On the bottom are usually the peasants/serfs. Peasants/serfs would take care of the land and work and produce for the Kingdom. Peasants can leave that society if things get too bad, but serfs cannot. Usually next is the Knight/Warrior class. The Knights protect the society and times of War and Peace from threatening outsiders. Next tier is the aristocrats/family of the King/Queen. They are rich, they are powerful, and they have a lot of say in what happens in the Kingdom. They can only be stopped by the top tier, The Monarch. The Monarch is the top of the Kingdom, what he says, goes. He is the head of the government and he makes the rules. An example of a Feudal system is Medieval Europe between the 9th and 15th century.
Constitutional Monarchy are monarchies with Law backed up behind it to keep the King in check. These attempts to keep a King from abusing his power and becoming a tyrant. The Magna Carta (England) is an example of law stopping the king of retaining absolute power. One example is Modern day United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland), Queen Elizabeth II.
Elective Monarchies are monarchies where the people hold elections to decide who their King shalt be. This type of monarchy gives more power to the people in choosing who their leader is and how he will lead them. One example of an Elective Monarchy is The Kingdom of Kongo.
Absolute Monarchy are monarchies where The King has all The Power. No one can question his authority and what he wants and what he says goes. The only thing that can stop him is death, exile or advocating the throne. The Absolute Monarch is The most Powerful King out of all the other types. An example of an Absolute Monarch is French King Louis XIV.
Topic three - story of kings
There are many stories of different kings in history, this may include fiction and non-fiction. One example of a fictional story of a King is The Story of King Arthur 'The Once and Future King'. The Story goes that once a great king, the king of the Britain's in fact, Uther Pendragon had a son named Arthur. Uther fell sick and in fear of his enemies coming to slay his son; Uther asked Merlin The Wizard to bring his son to a different family and not to tell anyone that he had a son. When Uther died the Kingdoms split between many kings and chaos ensued. It came to pass that Merlin enchanted a marble stone with an anvil on top and in it was a sword. Whoever pull the sword out of the stone shalt be the rightful king of all the Britain's. Many tried and all failed. One day a tournament came about and Kay 'Arthur's step brother' went into the tourney to honor his father. In battle his sword was broken off and Kay asked Arthur to fetch him a new sword. Arthur ran into London Town looking for a Smith to make him a new sword. However, everyone in London town were at the tournament. Arthur saw the sword in the anvil and pulled it out without struggle and brought it to his brother. His brother asked, where did thou get this beautiful sword? Arthur said he pulled it from the anvil in the stone. Kay dropped out of the tourney and told his father he ,Kay, pulled the sword from the stone. When his father asked him to put it back in and pull it out again, he failed. Then Arthur tried and succeeded! The Once and Future King of all the Britain's was revealed. Merlin had all the kings of the land come around and try once more to pull the sword from the stone. They all failed, but then Arthur came and pulled it in front of everyone; cementing his role as The One King of all the Britain's. After many repeats from others and Arthur, Arthur was indeed proven to be the rightful King of all the land. The people bowed down and honored Arthur as The King of all of The Britain's, King Arthur.
Alexander The Great
Alexander The Third was born in 356 BC in Classical World Greek Kingdom Macedon. He reigned from 336 BC to 323 BC. Alexander The Great was tutored by the great philosopher Aristotle who believed in Monarchy. He eliminated any rivals to his thrown as well. During his reign Alexander led an army in a ten year campaign to control the Persian Empire, where he eventually overthrew King Darius The Third and controlled land from The Indus River to the Adriatic Sea. Being tutored by Aristotle himself, Alexander was taught in the ways of a virtuous monarch and would have practiced as such.
Julius Caesar was a Roman General, Statesman and Ruler born in 100 BC in Rome, Italy. Caesar had many accomplishments in his life. These include being Known as one of The World's greatest military Leaders of All time, preventing an invasion of Rome by the Gauls, conquering much land and expanding Rome. Julius Caesar is the figure to directly lead Rome from being a Republic and becoming an Empire. He was even crowned Dictator of Rome, not King since Rex( Latin for King) was a bad word in Rome; kind of like in Today's World. He was assassinated though by Senators who did not want a King to be in Power, for they wanted the power to themselves no matter if giving it to Caesar would help the Roman People. This act was done on The Ides of March (March 15th/ Middle of March) in 44 BC. Rome could have been the greatest kingdom of all time if this did not occur, but we shalt never know,
Ivan The Terrible
Ivan The Terrible (Ivan IV) was a Russian Monarch born in 1530 in Kolomenskoye, Russia. His father, Grand Prince Vasily III, died when Ivan was three so Ivan was put on the throne in his place. For five year his mother ruled in his place, since he was so young, but was supposilied poisoned five years later. After that Russia went under chaos of power struggle between those who wanted to rule. Without a true monarch to rule, chaos always insues. In 1547, Ivan was alas crowned Tsar and Grand Prince of all of Russia. He ruled with an iron fist. Wealthy Aristocrats were held at bay with Ivan in power, for he did not let the wealthy create laws that would oppress the poor of the land. This is a great reason for a monarch, for a monarch does not allows one faction of society to control another. When Ivan left the throne after having enough of the game of politics, the Aristocrats took over Russia. They wrote laws to allow themselves to become richer using the poor as their means to that end. After awhile the Aristocrats ask for Ivan to reclaim his throne because the poor hated them and they needed protection. Ivan agreed and become sole ruler of Russia once more. However, he did not protect the rich, he tore them to shreds for what they hath done to the common people; turning the common folks into serfs. Ivan protected all his people from tyranny and administered justice righteously and fairly. An excellent example of how a monarch should be I do declare.
King Alfred was a Super Awesome King! Born in 849 in Oxfordshire, The United Kingdom. Alfred The Great was king of Wessex which is a Saxon Kingdom in the Southwest of England. King Alfred had done great things for his kingdom including fighting off the Danes from conquering England and promoting the people to learn more and become Literate. This was the beginning of arming a population with knowledge which many would not believe came from Monarchy. Alfred must of knew the importance of having a smart populace for it can bring many great thing to a Kingdom and Society.
topic four - PHILOSOPHICAL ideas of monarchy
Aristotle was an Awesome Classical World Ancient Greek Philosopher from the 4th Century B.C. He has written many great books such as Politics, Poetics & Metaphysics. Aristotle believed in Monarchy. Aristotle stated that Monarchy cannot be a tyranny and a tyranny cannot be a Monarchy. Also a Monarch is a man of virtue, who looks out for the good of the society or community. A Monarch is the head of the community therefore he is the role model for the community to follow. A Monarch cares to build his honor while a Tyrant cares to build his own wealth.
Topic five - two choices
There are two options for rule in humanity. Either it is Monarchy or Oligarchy. There is no such thing as popular rule for people of high dominance will always take over the system. In a system where government officials are elected by the people, those elected officials are being paid by the wealthy to do their bidding. Another point to bring up is that, people vote for their own self-interest, not the greater good. A King however makes his decisions based on the greater good, since his self interest is the greater good. For If a man has all the power, what is he to gain but honor?
Topic six - PROPAGANDA against monarchy
In much of the modern world, Monarchs are seen as evil tyrants who are selfish and only care to belittle peasants and torture them. Even in Ancient Rome, the word Rex, which is Latin for King; was seen as a derogatory remark. In the media, the king is usually the evil guy who needs to be taken down by the hero. An example of this propaganda is the story of Robin Hood; 'Take from the rich and give to the poor.' Robin Hood would steal the property of the greedy king and give it away to the peasants. First of all, this is theft, and second, why does the king own all this stuff? Did he or his ancestors not fight and earned what they have; and while it is a virtue to be charitable, it doesn't make stealing from the king any better than the king being 'greedy'. Plus, that land is the king's land, that he owns, he is letting the peasants live on his land and in return they work the land. The peasants can leave whenever they want, start their own kingdom or other from of government themselves, but no, the monarch owns this land and doesn't give us enough of what we want, so let's steal what is his. The dilemma in this thought process is quite clear I do declare.
Topic seven - virtues a king should follow
A Monarch in it's true form is always virtuous. Anyone acting as King and who is not virtuous, nor honorable, nor righteous, is not a King, but a Tyrant. A King acts for the good of his subjects & for the well being of his subjects which is his self-interest. A King should act as a Father to his Kingdom and subjects. Leading them to a prosperous life through good policy, law and good example. The King most definitely acts as Figure head, a hero, someone to look up too for his people. A monarch works for the common good of the people and curbs those oppressing the lesser in society. A Monarch is incorruptible for money means nothing to him, only honor and virtue. The monarch will uphold the values of his people and will ensure that justice shalt be done fairly.
topic eight - when monarchy isn't monarchy
Many hath called themselves Kings, but were not kings at all, a better name for them is Tyrants. A Tyranny is a governmental system that rules through either/both cruelty and/or oppression of the peoples it governs. Famous tyrants include Nero, Mao, Stalin & Abdullah. These tyrants do not serve the greater good, but instead line their own pockets and crush anyone who questions their authority. A true Monarch should always be open to hearing what others have to say, for it may help fix a problem in the kingdom or empire. Cutting these ties of decent always leads to a system where corruption and crime run rampant and nothing ever gets done to better a society. A figure head to a people would listen to the problems of his people, just as a father would listen to his children when they have problems. For a father listens to the problem and almost instantly works to fix it and bring order back from chaos. A tyrant on the other hand, loves chaos, it is in his nature to create it and destroy beauty and order. A true monarch is a good father while a tyrant is a deadbeat dad.
topic nine - why other systems are inferior
Let's start with Democracy and why it dost not work. Simple statement, just because the majority wants it, does not mean it is right. Let's take for example flat earth. In one point in time, most if not all people believed the Earth was flat. We know now, that this is not the case. Was it any less true then? Majority rule is not always right, for what if the majority is uneducated or savage? It is better to have one decide and if he decides wrong, to replace them than trust 51 percent of a population to make the decisions. Onto Republicanism, we run into almost the same exact problem except now, things are muddied up. Now we hath money influencing things. First let's look at differences in opinion. When there's a difference in opinions, it is hard to get things done, especially when the elected are corrupt; which they usually always are. Without a coming together of a common idea, things are scattered and good policy rarely get enacted. In a Monarchy, action is almost immediate. In a Republic, running for office can be expensive, so candidates rely on contributions. This is where the rich can influence what policies are enacted. "I pay you this, and you make this happen." Now the Republic is truly an Oligarchy with rich controlling what happens and the politicians are merely their puppets. The laws are written by the rich for the rich. Onto Communism, the idea of the state controlling the means of production destroys the soul and will of the community. When everything is equal and not hierarchical, the incentive to do anything productive to stand out and be praised evaporates. It can never work because people like to be recognized for their achievements, plus if we do not distinguish good and bad; all are equal; then nothing is bad; including murder, and nothing is good; for example charity. Lastly let's take a look at Anarchy. Anarchy may be the worst of them all, for it is a form of government that is created from pure nihilism; nothing is right or wrong, nothing is good nor evil, all is personal opinion. In that case, let's just murder and random person on the street and steal their belongings; since nothing is right nor wrong. The problem is that people have differences of opinion that directly contradict each other. Some may think stealing is okay, while other do not. A Monarch acts as a moral authority that lays down the laws and keeps a society stable and orderly.
closing topic - World View of Monarchy
Monarchy may be seen as the natural form of government. In many animal groups there is an Alpha who leads the group to survival or death. With humans this is the same thing throughout history. Even in an Oligarchy, Republic or Democracy; Power always will concentrate to One Person who is the Powerful Leader. So it would seem that no matter how people try to run away from monarchy it will always reappear, Look at Rome for example, A Republic that eventually became ‘Monarchy’, and it lasted longer that way than as a republic, for millennia.A Monarchy brings a sense of community to a people because no matter the political division in a society, there is always a head for people to look up to and aspire to be more like. Monarchy also does not mean 'lack of freedom'. In the top 27 most Free nations in the world; 9 of them are Monarchies, including The United Kingdom(27th), Spain (25th),Belgium(18th), Japan(16th), Luxembourg(7th), Netherlands(5th), Sweden(1st), Norway(1st) and Denmark(10th). That mean 1/3 of The World's most Free countries are Monarchies. Today's World is ran by corrupt politicians who are in it only for the money, A King is in it for the honor and care for his society. So, One may ask, is there any other way? Will there eventually be, The King of The World!.
