ok lets establish some basics. moanrchy: arose from tribalistic europe, basically modern and large scale chief cult. read tacitus.
>"it is customary for states to make voluntary and individual contributions of cattle or agricultural produce to the leaders these are accepted as a token of honour."
>"on the field of battle it is a disgrace to the leader to be surpassed in valour by his companions, to the companions not to equal the valour of their leader. to outlive ones leader by withdrawing from battle brings life long infamy and shame"
>"to defend and protect him, to attribute to his glory ones own brave deeds, that is the crux of their oath of allegiance: the leaders fight for victory, the companions fight for their leader"
basically, the chief (king) is meant to be a role model, protector, and provider. the lads fight for the chief it is honourable to give your all for him AS LONG AS THE KING IS TRUE.
culture is important. problem is, good times-weak men, and all that. its bad cause the good cultures have produced times so good that their sons become weak. good morals produced by a good culture are far better than any laws. laws can be good, but they are easily corrupted. what needs to happen is the creation of a good culture that is different in that it is self sustaining, self replicating, immune to bad change (immediet or eventual), and dug in. basically every facet of society, biology, and psychology must be taken into account and optomised to ensure the survival of good culture and good men. a point to consider.
create artificial struggle, do not be a greedy dog for your children that wants the world for them, as your grandchildren will lack far more than the grandparent. but also like working out. you could "struggle for a year, get gains and slack off, create measures to call out and negate complacency.
monarchs are not meant to take advantage of their people. the peoples adoration and loyalty is a fucking privilege for services rendered. the trick is installing a new monarch, since most revolutions end up in the installation of a democracy which his even worse than a selfish monarch. bloodlines are good but dry up. once this happens and you get th inevitable limp dicked crones that are now Britains monarchy, their line ran its course, throw them out and find another hero.

Nordic Monarchist Supremacy
In this world, Norway and Sweden unite as Kingdoms before the start of the Viking age and Norway and Sweden form an early non-Aggression pact. The reason? To resist Christianity and the Northern Crusades (NC). While Denmark succumbs to Catholicism, converting before facing the NC, Norway and Sweden remain stubbornly 'Pagan,' and refuse to let those who reject the worship of the Aesir-Vanir into the nobility. Denmark in this timeline plays the role of Prussia in our timeline but at a much earlier date. As a result of less in-fighting, the Nordic nations have become first-tier super-powers as opposed to their backwater status in our timeline.
The Danish and French Empires are officially Catholic and have a non-Aggression pact similar to the one the Northern Empires have.
The Norwegian Empire remains majority 'Germanic Pagan,' although Buddhism, Taoism, and even 'heretical' (non-Catholic) Christianity have also spread to some degree among peasants. In the Swedish Empire, Buddhists, Hindus, Taoists, and non-Catholic Christianity form the major religions while the nobility is still required to primarily worship the Aesir-Vanir.
Only racially Nordic people that worship the Aesir-Vanir are permitted to be nobility in the Northern Empires. Christians and other races are locked out of official power. Meanwhile, the Catholic Empires do not tolerate any public religious diversity, even among peasants.
In this timeline, Religion, Monarchy, and Feudalism are still absolute, with the exception of Switzerland. The Renascence happened in Italy, and the industrial revolution began in Britain but they didn't lead to serious political reform nor the total abandonment of villages. The Protestant Reformation happened but never achieved political power.
The Japanese Empire remains Shinto, Buddhists, feudal, and isolationist in that foreigners are not welcome without an invitation by a Daimyo, yet Japan is not closed to trade.
The Arabian Caliphate is this timeline's primary source of chaotic 'terrorism.' All within the Caliphate are slaves to Allah, even the Caliph. This is a common saying in the Caliphate, and it may be true, but there are ranks of slaves, and a Black is not permitted to be the master of an Arab or whiter muslim. In war, Blacks form the majority of foot soldiers.
By 1999, technology has advanced to the point the Norwegian Empire has landed a Man on the Moon and nuclear weapons have been tested by all major powers, although never used. 'Internets' exist but are niche. Taking the train is more common than taking a personal car. The internal combustion engine although discovered, was banned for peasants for 'polluting the air.' Large urban development is largely restricted to rail corridors and rivers. There are far more legal jurisdictions than in our timeline and far fewer jurisdictional agreements. Marriage is still the primary method of class advancement.

King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa is the monarch of a constitutional monarcy. The government has a national assembly divided into the Council of Representatives and the Consultative Council. Members of the council of representatives are voted on.
The King wields a wide array of executive power, such as the appointment of prime ministers, command of the army, and appointing members of the consultative council.
Obviously a mix between republicanism and monarchy, but I was wondering what you guys think.

i do not know what specific ideology yous follow, is it essentially just "whatever king says goes"? i am of the opinion that the king should be true to their people (the meaning of their power).

Even to the corrupted senses of republicans, the happiest country in the world is a monarchy led by ancient spirituality. Yet they refuse to admit, perhaps they are wrong in trying to fashion false utopia on Earth. Now the worst of them, the godless, communist Chinese, threaten to destroy this immortal, benevolent society. We should esteem this rare example of traditional glory because these expressions will fade with ever increasing rapidity as the seasons pass.

So, yea.. about that Monarchy thing
Hello there. The door were.. missing, so I let myself in.
Some Grace'ful purple rabbit led me into this strange land and after mining her appearance a bit I thought that being monarchist myself I might inquire a thing or two, and no, I'm not asking about the diapers, whatever that weird shit is, I'm not ready.
Went over some posts for the last three hours to compose my idea about this place, but I guess it would be more considerate to just ask you openly – what kind of /Monarchy/sts are you?
(Beside silent ones. I wen't through the general and lots of you seem to openly having nothing so say and just lurk. Or outwardly state being afraid of saying anything due to chadbrain thundercocks.)
Please excuse my retardation but I though it was the yellow people who like to nap alot, why do you also do nothing about the shitstorm that our world has become?
This place seem.. crestfallen. And yea, to a point - I get it. Nobody outside is throwing flowers when you enter a room. Nobody mentions the topics you are so well versed in. All that seem to be left from the ideals you hold so dear are malicious laughter and occasional finger-pointing. If thats the barrier here then.. Well, tough shit sweetheart. Do you know what history calls good people that changed nothing because the process hurts? Me neither.
So thats why I ask – what kind of /Monarchy/sts are you?
Do you honestly believe that Monarchy can grant this planet an actual future, and by that I mean that it can stop this tech inbued bread-and-circus regress we seem to be stuck in? Or is this place just some souvenir shop of the bygone era, offering same answers to the same questions for a rare occasional net tourist?
Because if you're just broken, honestly broken, then I'll leave you to it. I might be still young, but my liver is not.
But if you are just discouraged by this idea's current popularity, the low count of your own board population, the chilly welcome that topic of Monarchy receives in the outside spaces – this all can be changed, and quite easily at that (although not instantaneously I feel I need to add).
Well.. yea. With fire. How exactly do you think those things went in the age old past?
You construct a gameplan. Aggresive, offensive gameplan.
And I'm not here to just throw shit at you and then leave you hanging. Beside my initial interest and promise for participation I would also like to start some actual discussion. Not about the past but about now.
> In due time people will get informed themselves and then..
No. No, they won't. You need to get to them. Accordingly adjust rhetoric, think of easy to chew answers for commonly perveiced wrongs with the system. Imagine a plan to gather initial 'missionary' count and a strategy for them on where and how to operate. Grow the numbers. Gather initial responses and prepare counter offensives for each and every handfull of lost ground. Collect and distribute appropriate aesthetics to both strenghten your own morale and coherce outsiders. And last but not least fire up those memeforges and use this beautiful modern day gunpowder of information era.
An actual plan. Composed out of lots and lots of brainstorms. Because you can think of this either as an actual war, or just some private elitists selfmasturbatory smugclub. And if there is some alternative dimension in which ideas comes to live just by thinking of them, in said reality Grace is just violently beating your lazy smug ass with a harsh end of a septer. Please don't get aroused, its not helping.
> well.. people think Monarchy is some medieval newlywed rape ponzi scheme
Yes, yes they do, but they also think that it just happened that this administration helped with nothing and they just need to vote better next time for the utopia to come. People are generally stupid. Not bad. Important distinction. It's ok to be stupid, we don't get mad at them, we help them out.
In this case helping out in its alpha stage might chronologically look something like that:
> Wait for a sleepy board to wake the fuck up
> Create dozens and dozens of generals to unify, simplify and modernize widely touched upon (by the disney raised self proclaimed intellectuals of the lowly modern masses) „lackings” of the Monarchic institutions liiii:
> iiike: sovereign's legitimacy; role of religion; bad king scenario; interrex period; existance and role of aristocracy; post-democratic transformation period; upward mobility issue; male-female inheritance rationale; and so on and so forth
> Create and distribute meme arms of war among missionaries and send them off to gather initial wave of converts
> Divinate and execute a plan to permanently colonize at least parts of online spaces especially those of high-value influence potential
You know. Acknowledge the changes that came. Mold them over, adapt, and get back to the ring.
Just like monarchies of 16century looked alot different that those of 19th, and just like original bolsheviks looked nothing like modern kumbaya globocrowd - the last 100 year period changed much around the world and yet nothing on Monarchy. It requires revitalisation on some points. Don't think you are lacking or have smallbrain takes on the matter, people before us didn't know all the information all the time, they weren't under psychological assault of comparing themselves to everyone everywhere from all of the time. They just observed the world around them and put the pen to paper. In this psychological sense we are at the disadvantage here and must also take this into account, get over it and adapt. That means no lurking. You can either dig gold deliberately, by mistake or help other mold over the proper grounds to dig.
Modern world education stripped me from so called „Classical education”, so I got pissed and went through all of it on my own. Those Titans of age past, that actually changed the world for the better. They.. well, if you didn't read them, believe you me – some of their takes, some of their proposed solutions..
Those were just intravert retards. Each and every next age used only parts of their ideas because the rest was retarded. Both titans and 'only' humans in one. True beauty of human condition.
So.. What I'm trying to say is..
Care to discuss some stuff?

Phillip IV of France
Did he and his puppet church in Avignon really do anything wrong respecting the templars? It's said a lot that he only really exterminate them because of the debts he had with them and in order to get to his treasure. But. It doesn't rob you the wrong way that a christian monastic order got to get that rich because of
