Look. We have to distinguish between two things here. The System or it's implentation. Monarchies as a system, give out priviliges and power based on inheritance, this is the definition of a Monarchy. You might be right, Englands/Britains Monarchy might have been the best there ever was and they treated their people better than others COMPARED to the rest of the Monarchs, etc. But it is one of THOUSANDS of Monarchies trough out the history of Monarchies and most of them, one way or another, have been abbolished. And as I said, for a reason. There simply was no use for Monarchies anymore with the newly formed, of what we call today, modern states or nation states, with governements, parliaments, higher education particularly for the general public, constitutions, seperation of power and so on. And in many cases it marked an IMPROVEMEND for those societies, once they abolished Monarchies and established their nation state. The Russian revolution is in no way an example for ALL socities that abolished Monarchies just as how the British Monarchy is not a prime example how they all act. They are right behind dictatorships and authoritarian regimes. Was every dictatorship in the human history as repressive like the Soviet Union? No. Does that mean we should get back to it? Was every slave tortured and treated like waste? No. Does it mean it we should return to it? Just because there have been 'benevolent' Slave masters or Kings trough out history, doesn't mean we should see those SYSTEMS as inherently positive. Just the mere fact, that Monarchies are build on dynasties, make them problematic in our day and age. We're not living in socities that worked like the onces in medieval times some 1000 years ago. You have to ask your self a simple qestion really, do you want to live in a 'typical' Monarchy? Take a look at the Kingdom of Bahrain; the Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace; the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan; the State of Kuwait; the Kingdom of Morocco; the Sultanate of Oman; the State of Qatar; the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; and the United Arab Emirates. Those are all acting pretty much as what your average Monarchy did trough out human history. They are repressive regimes, with draconian laws. Have a nice stay! The fact that some of them might even be supported by the majority of their populations, doesn't change the fact that the minority that doesn't is oppressed. Free speech, free exchange of ideas, etc. you can forget about that in a Monarchy. What you're looking at, is a very very (very!) special form of Monarchy, which holds almost no power and exists only as a mere symbolic institution, they are for the most part special celebreties. If a nation decides to retain their 'Monarchy' and use taxes to pay for it, as a form of tradition or national idenity, that's their decisions, so be it. But giving ACTUAL power to a Monachy? That usually doesn't end in the kind of socities as we see them today, with a modern government and the seperation of power and independed jurisdiction. You end up with a form of Dictatorship.
