"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

@interneteh Yeppp. I recommend watching Philosophy Tube's video on it

Or just talk to @scottishwobbly or @GreenandBlack for a few minutes and they'll complain about it lol

@socalledunitedstates @scottishwobbly @GreenandBlack I mean there are liberals here who are infatuated with the royal family, but... Yeah I guess I could see this happening

@socalledunitedstates @interneteh @GreenandBlack the vast majority of liberals here are pro-monarchist even if it's "only symbolic"

@interneteh @socalledunitedstates I prefer the term ‘soft royalist’
example: my otherwise standard California liberal mom who thinks Europe’s royal families are cute and romantic and is mildly emotionally invested in them

@photophoregirl @socalledunitedstates seems they could be cute and romantic from afar. Like, away from government and working for their living


@interneteh @socalledunitedstates if there are monarchist socialists, there can be anything you'd imagine!
