TradCatKnight: The duty of Royal Hearts living as a diaspora in a Republican wasteland
I am passionate about the restoration of the Monarchies in Europe and even about a proper Monarchy for the United States. When I say “restoration,” I mean more than bringing back to power those princely families who now are sidelined by the multitude of 18th and 19th century Republics. What I mean by restoration of the Monarchies is much, much more. I refer to the fulfillment and actualization of the proper Monarchical Form in all the princely families, those now reigning included.
For the most part, the European Monarchies are shadows of their former selves. With Republicanism stream-rolling through America and across the European continent in previous centuries, the remaining Monarchs still standing are left now with inappropriately limited powers and often are more symbolic in nature than true rulers. The proper Monarchical Form is an ideal, but no more so than the proper Republican ideal. Whether Monarchist or Republican, we hold up the respective ideal Form as an inspiration for the nation. Therefore, I have no qualms about referring to a Monarchical Form, even if it has never been realized nor ever will be (the same is true for Republics – but that does not stop Republicans from preaching the virtues of the Republic).
