Is a Monarchy or Republic more beneficial? Show more Show less
Back to question

A monarchy and a republic distribute the power and agency of the country’s leadership very differently. Which of the two is more beneficial?

Monarchy is more beneficial Show more Show less

Monarchy, or rule by one person, has been the most common form of government in history. Monarchies are better than republics for numerous reasons. Monarchs exist on a station beyond politics since they unite people in a way democratically elected leaders cannot. They attain their position by birth, not through the help of a political party, money, or media.
