Why I Am A Monarchist

Democracies/Republics are inherently unstable and short lived 
  • No democracy, in the history of the world, has survived more than 300 years
  • The record is not much better for republics.
  • All human beings are not equal.
  • Majorities often error.
  • Not everybody is able to judge every political question.
  • Intelligent and honest men are not always popular. 
  • The functional value of the ignorant and the learned are not the same.
  • Majorities are not necessarily the better part of the whole.

State-ism (Socialism/Fascism) has never produced anything worth preserving.

Monarchy is the oldest form of government.
  • Monarchies have produced the most brilliant cultures and civilizations in history.
  • They are generally long enduring governments.
  • Monarchy is fully consonant with the human spirit.
  • Monarchy is not synonymous with despotism or  tyranny.


  1. "All human beings are not equal." Perhaps the most provocative statement. Please elaborate.

  2. All Men are equal in the eyes of God. It is one thing to be equal in worth, and quite another to be equal in capacity. Simply look at the way men live; some men govern themselves well, some do not and never will. I think it is very silly to value anyone's opinion only because they exist.
