In most cases, so much time has past that the basis of these arguments have absolutely no meaning in the modern world. In other words, for their arguments to even be considered, the entire mindset and way of thinking of society as a whole would have to change. Being a reactionary sort, The Mad Monarchist believes this would be much for the better, but it is certainly not about to happen and would not be magically brought about by changing the person on the throne in London or Madrid. In most cases there would first have to be the most fundamental and far-reaching religious revival in human history for these issues to even be considered by the public of today. As stated, The Mad Monarchist leans quite heavily toward the reactionary side of things and recognizes the great values, ideals and historical lessons of past monarchists such as the Jacobites in Britain or the Carlists in Spain. Had The Mad Monarchist lived in Britain in 1688 he would certainly have been a Jacobite and had he lived in Spain in 1833 he would certainly have been a Carlist. However, those contests were decided centuries ago, the Jacobite heir has no desire to be King of the U.K. and the Carlist heir is already King of Spain. So, we will talk about these groups, we will honor their memory and what they fought for but the validity of all currently remaining monarchs is absolute and will not be questioned.
In a different but related field of confusion, although it would seem elementary to most people, The Mad Monarchist does not endorse the dissolution or break-up of any monarchy or any European country. There seem to be many people who wish for monarchies such as the Kingdom of Belgium, the Kingdom of Spain or the United Kingdom to break-up into smaller pieces. Obviously, The Mad Monarchist opposes any harm whatsoever coming to any monarchy in the world. On the other hand there are some monarchists who seem to want republics (or as we prefer, ‘former monarchies’) such as Germany or Italy to break up. The Mad Monarchist opposes this as well for the purely practical reason that it would set monarchists opposed to the national will and whenever people are forced to choose between their nation and anything else, historically they have always chosen their nation. Furthermore, again, the minorities who would actually favor breaking these countries up in these countries themselves are invariably republican. The last thing the world needs is more republics.
