"No modern society should have a monarch" really shouldn't be considered a fucking radical suggestion but here we are
I've talked about this before but the level of propaganda here is astounding. I grew up in a nation defined by its resistance to monarchy, but when they told me that same country still has a monarch they just said "it's actually fine" and I never questioned it again
They really can make people think anything, huh
@socalledunitedstates having captains of industry run everything instead of a monarch (plus captains of industry) isn't much more logical
@interneteh True, but I mean abolishing the monarchy is something I'd expect even liberals to agree on
@socalledunitedstates there are monarchist liberals?
@socalledunitedstates but without the Queen how can we have a democracy???
@socalledunitedstates I think you might be straying outside your lane here
@hope @socalledunitedstates I'm with you, Hope. Fundamental to my relationship to anarchism is a belief in a people's right to self-determination, and from outside a specific culture, tradition, and history it's not for me to prescribe what works or what is meaningful. Plus, we tend to impose a Western European understand of monarchy over the rest of the world when denouncing "monarchy" as a general concept, which is... not great.
Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
