Nope it's bad enough in the U.S. God only knows how bad it would be with a monarch. Most people still think Obama's a Muslim and a Marxist, imagine if he was "ordained by god" like most kings are.... batshit crazy to the 10th power....

Funny how many elected officials seem to think they are so "ordained." Well, sad, actually. . .

I'm all for it.

one of my main reasons for saying this being the fact that Democracy is already at it's last stages. in it's final days, full of corruption.

as some guy long ago said, "Even a katana left for too long becomes a rusted blade".

We conquered nature with technology? I suppose that would mean Airplanes fly through Witchcraft and Musicplayers play music via socery, and that launching a rocket into space requires no science at all, and, therefore, is perfectly unnatural, and not determined, at all, by natural laws. Indeed, automobiles' locomotion, unaided by horses and other cart animals as it is, is 'Wizardry'. We should give up all pursuit of science, instead, turning to the Arcane arts, because, apperantly, that is what technology is, not a manipulation of natural laws for our benefit, but conquering nature by some arcane means.,

As far as Germany goes, it's fair to say most of that resentment was fostered due to the heavy reparations from WWI, and was then compounded by the economic chaos the rest of the world was facing. In terms of how much they had to pay, they would still have been paying through the 1990s, if not up through the present day, at their rate of reconstruction and economic growth at the time. The Nazis simply turned this fear and bitterness into an opportunistic anger, and made quite a few scapegoats in the process.

People who are already fearful tend to rally against things they believe they should be fearful of...even if there is no apparent threat. Or worse, if it's acting against their own best interest. As proof of this concept, insurance companies bused Medicare recipients to anti-healthcare reform rallies. These elderly people held signs that read, "Keep your government hands off our Medicare!" That these people were fearful of losing their coverage is very understandable. What is far less understandable is that the very people who bused them to that rally would provide them with fewer services, at higher cost, if they could get away with it...and those they were rallying against were the ones trying to increase availability and reduce costs.

Please don't put words into my mouth, I specifically said that we are conquering nature, I did not say we conquered it.

Why are you making the assumption that technology does not require science? It is through science and our knowledge of the natural world that makes technology possible. Once we understand a particular natural law well enough, we can impose our will on nature, despite that law being a constraint we have to overcome. There are many technologies that require a certain amount of knowledge of multiple natural laws, but once we obtain that knowledge, we are able to implement that technology if we have the necessary resources available.

It's hard to say. While I'd like to say that so long as the king/queen were just in their actions, I wouldn't mind that, I know it isn't possible. There would be something they did I wouldn't agree with, that much I can rest assured of, and there are many, many bad rulers out there.

Despite that, there have been good rulers, and I wouldn't mind bringing some of them back from the grave.

I am Amun Ra. I am all Pharaohs. All Pharaohs are embodiments of me. Yes, a monarchy can work if the King or Queen are just. Look at the Egyptian Empire and Sumerian Empire. Their monarchies worked for thousands of years.
