A monarchy encourages nationalism

< (2 of 2)

The Argument

Monarchies have more nationalism than other countries. Nationalism inspires teamwork to bring success to the country.[1] There isn’t any division which can lead to disagreements and fighting.

Counter arguments

Although a monarchy will be united politically, it does not account for contending opinions. There will always be different opinions that disrupt unity.[2] Believing one opinion is better than another is a reflection of someone’s pride.[3] Nationalism is truly just a generalization of one concept that everyone agrees on, rather than an authentic consensus.
