Monarchy

Definition: A form of government with a monarch at the head.

Pros:

Leadership Suitability- The heirs to the throne are being taught about the correct and efficient ways of ruling a government as early as their childhood years while the usual politicians only learn about these when they are already young men and women.

Fewer Arguments - There is only one person that will decide, so the decisions are made quickly and there are fewer arguments regarding the new policies to be made.

Cons:

Lack of Democratic Accountability: Monarchs are no held accountable to people through ballot boxes once they fail to become effective leaders.

More anger within citizens: Because the citizens don't have a say in the government, they do become angry.

Countries with monarchy: Norway and Britain both have monarchs.

Quotes:

“I would rather obey a fine lion, much stronger than myself, than two hundred rats of my own species.” -Voltaire


“One of the strongest natural proofs of the folly of hereditary right in kings, is, that nature disapproves it, otherwise, she would not so frequently turn it into ridicule by giving mankind an ass for a lion.” - Thomas Paine
