    I always wonder if most of this crazy stuff that has been going on in this country would cease if we had a monarchy. Maybe there won't be so much divide in this country like we are facing now. Do you think laws will be respected more? Do you see any good period if there was a monarchy, rather than a president. Would that negate the 'freedom' this country has? Why would it do any good or why wouldn't it do any good?

    Lol you are back to normal with over the top topics, how is that gonna help us? what do you mean when you say"we" we are slaves, unless we would be the kings and Queens and have absolute power over everything, that would be a very bad idea , why don't ask for a dictatorship government while you at it. Wait we are under a dictatorship government it's just being covered under the banner of Democracy.

    That is not a good idea in my opinion. If the wrong man or woman is in power, our communities would be in a bad position.

    Monarchies only work if a kind-hearted person is in power.

    The oligarchy isn't enough? At this point, it'd just be giving the wealthy a fancy title to go with what they already have in a lot of cases.

    What type of monarchy are you referring to? I don't see any value in either, really. The constitutional monarch system in the UK doesn't look much different than our two-party system. The Blair/Bush combo were slimy twins...particularly during 911 and the whole debacle with Iraq...Afghanistan...searching for WMDs...Osama the whole 9.

    The way things are around the world today, I'm not sure what system of government would be advantageous for Black people and what it would take to not have it adopt the ways of thieving, lying and oppressive systems that are so prevalent today.

    Are there examples anywhere of governments that actually work well for the people they govern? Are any in Africa? I don't mean governments simply run by Africans but actually are thriving on behalf of its people.

    The positive aspect of monarchies is their African historical precedence: What's considered The First Monarchies--Ethiopia then Egypt--were both African states by African people. Monarchies reached Europe by way of Rome, which emulated Greece which emulated Egypt which was started by Ethiopia. However, a European King was very different from an African King. A European King is unable to handle the affairs of the state, an African King is given the greatest education to handle the affairs of the state. The European King rules over his people, whereas the African King speaks for his people.

    European Monarchies are actually very horrendous institutions, embodying the phrase "Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely."

    This Government isn't so bad. The problem with this government is that it requires a level of participation and organization that's not fostered in the Black Community. For instance, there are endless legal protections against the abuses we face--but we do not know of them and we are easily intimidated. Example, young Black men are heading to prison pleading guilty to crimes they did not commit because prosecutors are giving them plea bargains akin to "We'll give you 40 years if you're found guilty, or you can skip trial and take 5 years."

    Of course, in a monarchy, the King, the King's Regents, or the King's underlings can put you in prison without a trial without cause. That's the same today--yes--but the protections aren't there.

    There have bee kingdoms that have worked better for the whole, then what we have at this moment. But the mentality of the western man will never let this happen again.

    Well, if we should find a better government for Black people, I seriously doubt it will be in the U.S. and definitely not without total chaos erupting and caused by an attempted revolt of Black people and their allies, if there are any. There are so many different people from different cultures living in the U.S., who would join us as an ally to fight the beast, OR do you think we need allies to help push our cause? Based on what some believe that has been mentioned in other threads, we won't be able to use the current system of elections to vote anyone into office. That system is already corrupt and down the toilet. :poop:

    When you start talking about governments and political systems, you're striking at the heart of the beast and it has more money and more guns than we do and by "we" I don't even think that means 100% of us. Some will jet to the "other" side just like they did during the slave system..."Der day go massa..they's plottin' agin!!" :running:

    I'll answer you like this, as far this place here goes, it don't matter what kinda government they have, we will always be at the bottom. However when our Lord and Savior Christ the Black Messiah comes back we will be ruling the earth again, it will be a theocratic government Rule by the Most High God with Christ as the Ultimate King. and We will be once again Kings and Queens upon this earth forever.
