>>263799825
The FPA got them as soon as the coup ended, and the empire got them as soon as the civil war ended. They even say something along these lines in the episode 'the civil war in the alliance weakened the government while the civil war in the empire strengthened it.

You still have people that will damage the political system in charge like Truniht, but that's simply because a democracy is a democracy. Truniht was able to use the situation to his advantage politically and was reelected. An empire does not hold elections.
>>
>>263800117
I think it's something of a cultural thing rather than a genuine one. But in all honesty it totally fits their mantra. Valhalla is a place where the strong can continue to test themselves against all of the great people that came before them.
>>
>>263800212
>>263800031
Truniht was the trueniht hero of Legend of the Galactic heroes.

Everything he did led to the downfall of their shitty democracy, while sowing the seeds of a parliament in the Empire, which would eventually become a better republic.

True heroes need no recognition.
>>
>>263800387
>remake
Nope
>>
>>263800494
Yeah, I didn't get that at all.
Outside of his opposition to the invasion of the empire and that one line at the end that states he supposedly was working towards a constitutional government. We're never shown any positive actions beyond these as far as I'm aware.

I like to think of Truniht as a person that benefits a society by exploiting its flaws in an effort to make a society that goes without any significant ones. His death at the end marks that he'd found a system he could not exploit. Probably a bit of headcanon, but I like the idea.
>>
>>263800385
That's what I thought until (>>263800387) showed up. That didn't strike me as something you'd say unless you were both serious and you believed in the same religious doctrine.

Which made me go back and try to reevaluate what they were saying and see if it was genuine or just a cultural allusion.

I still can't tell either way. You don't see them with little thor hammer necklaces or seers and holy festivals and other germanic pagan rites yet some of the things they say implies they do believe. So maybe they're mostly non-practicing germanic pagans without a strong organized state-religion?

Meanwhile this looks like a very Christian ceremony yet they never mention Christ. Maybe the book is more clear on the subject. The only religion the show is concerned with is the earth cult.

>>263801606
>Everything he did was for the good of the Empire
True, but he was incredibly poor at predicting human actions and it led to some serious problems.
No doubt he's one of the best characters in the show though, right next to Reuental.
>>
>>263800783
It's actually a joke, Truniht is a demagogue and an asshole. He was occasionally right though.

I'm pretty sure that opposing the invasion was just covering his ass, if it failed he wouldn't be voted out because he was the one with the sense to oppose it and if it worked he would just be seen as cautious by the five people who didn't get swept up in the victory and were still paying attention to politics.

Reuental was a very proud person who couldn't live without war.
He knew from the start that inviting the Kaiser to Neue land would very likely cause an incident that he was very prepared to respond to with force, and justified this on the gorunds of Lang and Oberstein's influence. This is obviously not true however, as he refuses to open negotiations even after he learns that Lang has been imprisoned.
Selfish and prideful maybe but not stupid.

Oberstein is only loyal to the rulers as long as they're useful to the state. His priority is a well functioning state. Reinhard was the one to achieve that. As soon as Reinhard would have turned into Rudolf, Oberstein would have cut him out like a tumour though - and I have little doubt that he could have succeeded.

No, in all honesty, he probably would have failed. One of Oberstein's specialities was choosing good leaders, if he'd failed in that aspect, then he's pretty much fucked. Sure, he could destabilize the empire and make Reinhard publicly hated, but he wouldn't be able to fix things, nor would he try something that would inevitably only worsen the situation.

You remeber how fatalistic he was, right? He was proposing plans that ended in his death left and right by the end of the show. If Reinhard turned into a despot, Oberstein would probably kill himself.
>>
>>263804237
>>263804393
Yang's death was amazing, because it wasn't anything grand like Reuental's. He got shot by some random mook and bled to death in a dark corridor. Hardly the way a hero should die, but that's what made it so good for me.
>>
>>263804142
Oberstein has no loyal followers though, he has absolutely no charisma and before Reinhard brought him into the fold he was unable to achieve anything and was going to get executed or at least imprisoned

He can only function off the back of someone like Reinhard

Also Oberstein was wrong about letting the nobles nuke that farm planet

Yeah, it was hit home what Yang said about "good people, brave people dying needlessly" or something

On the contrary, Reuental's death was tragic because you knew there was only one way it could end for him and it had all of the buildup and actions to prevent it led led to nothing. Yang's death didn't have enough time to really hit you as hard as Reuental's.

And then Kircheis' death was just fucking awful. I mean it wouldn't have been terrible if they didn't edit in that fucking echo. Completely ruined the mood.

>Yang's death didn't have enough time to really hit you as hard as Reuental's.
I didn't feel similarly sad for Reuental though. Reuental was an interesting character, but personally, I never liked him that much as a person. He simply had it coming after all he had done.

With Yang, things were different. He was one of the nicest guys in the show and the show simply lost so much with his death; his commentary on events, the talks he'd have with Julian about it, making reference to history. Yang was pretty much the embodiment of what LOGH is about: "At all times and places the deeds of man remain the same" and under that premise, Yang, the historian, could predict the future by learning from the past. This was the true reason for his strength, unlike the others, Yang learned from history.

Yang failed and he failed hard, he refused to sacrifice his ideals and take even temporary control of government. It's what kept him from strengthening the FPA after the coup, it's what kept him from savign the FPA when fighting Reinhard, and both of these situations forced him into a corner in Iserlohn where he would have been irrelevant if Reinhard had chosen to ignore him, and would have lost entirely had Reinhard decided not to open negotiations.
And then even after that, the only goal that even stands a chance of succeeding is the implementation of a constitution, NOT a parliament, that was something that was left ambiguous.

I'm not sure whether Yang would consider it a failure. He had no grand plans, he usually just did his job and commented on the things that were happening. All he wanted was record history, he had no ambition to write it first hand; even though to his own dismay he frequently found himself in the position to do so.
>>
>>
>>263808258
>And Reinhard was very reluctant to listen to any of Julian's ideas about democracy
This isn't true at all though. Reinhard had long talks with Yang and he had long talks with Julian too. He wasn't convinced about democracy because he believed in merit most of all - which is also why Julian had to prove himself by fighting Reinhard first. How much of it stuck is questionable, and I don't think he became a true democrat through these talks. He did however find it interesting and he most certainly was influenced through these discussions. And when it comes to Hilda, I'm fairly certain that something like this was mentioned somewhere in the show.

>while he might be against heredity, that's no indication of a democratic future.
How else would they determine the one in charge though? Clearly Reinhard's of overthrowing the person in charge can't become the standard.
>>

>How else would they determine the one in charge though?
Regents.
Reinhard does imply that he intends his son to be ruler one day with his speech about how all of his descendents will fight on the front line as long as they hold their positions, and furthermore earlier in the show, he meets with democratic reformists who leave happy that he is helping the people, but upset that he did not institute any actual form of electing leaders. It seemed to me that Reinhard liked the idea of a contitution because it could prevent abuse of power by heredity, not for the sake of political representation that comes with democracy.

There are a million ways to find a ruler that do not include heredity beside the fact anyway.

If you're not going to elect the ruler or determine the ruler by heritage, then I'm not too sure what you're going to do, because practically, these were usually the two ways people determined rulers historically.

>Also democracy a shit.
Yang has already made a point in favour of democracy throughout the show. It's simply the most stable form of government.

I'm not sure if it's my own arrogance or naive belief in the way things are right now but as a Brit I have almost 100% absolute belief that my country will never, ever have a revolution, a coup, or a dicatorship. The British political system very slowly and gradually evolves, and it's been slowly evolving to be more and more democratic over the last few hundreds of years.

While democracy is many areas of the world is unstable today, especially Asia and the Middle East, I feel like at least for the Western World, it has become the de facto norm, or default way of governing. I can't see, short of a catastrophe like a nuclear war, western nations ever having authoritarian forms of government ever again.

Note that the system of the USA is extremely unique in modern democracies, and almost the entire democratic world uses parliamentary systems of government rather than the Presidential system, which has pretty much failed in every nation except the USA.
>>

Although I'll add to this the biggest threat in western democracies isn't any sort of militarist coup, it's the threat from vested corporate interests, the threat of an overly powerful media, and the threat of the surveillance state.

Sure, you could also appoint the guy in charge - or have him appointed by a committee. This still comes with lots of problems of course.

>How long did France's revolutionary democracy last before Napoleon rose to power?
Napoleon took over through force.

>How long did democratic Germany last before Hitler rose to power?
Hitler got rid of the democratic process, he abolished democracy through the democratic process because the German constitution at that time was lacking a failsafe for that - that too has nothing to do with the democratic process itself though.

>How long has the United States been around- and during that time how many times has its existence been threatened by internal struggle or structural failure?
It worked reasonably well - especially if you consider how often Presidents had been elected throughout all that time. Imagine a monarchy to have switched as many times its ruler throughout that period. The country would be in ruins.

Democracy provides a peaceful revolution every few years. Dynasties on the other hand have to be violently overthrown. That is the true strength of democracy. It provides stability and order.

Why do you think this?
All major historical crises in the United States have been resolved by the office of the president almost always acting outside of his authority- namely by Lincoln in the Civil War and by FDR in the Great Depression. they overstepped the system of democracy for the sake of national security and it worked becasue centralized power works.

A democracy is a system based on the bleief that the public has the right to decide all political issues. If they wish to abandon their democracy, then that is their fucking choice and yes it is a fault in democracy. Democracy assumes that people would never consent to be governed by a tyrant, and this is flat out wrong.

Furthermore, if you look at some of the longer lasting dynasties, you'll see that they remain just as long as the longest democracies.
Democracy doesn't do anything for stability and order, it simply gives people political power and thereby makes them a political resource. Whether or not this is beneficial or harmful depends upon circumstance.

And don't tell me that there is no such thing as a despotic democracy, take a look at US history. It's always the tyranny of the majority, a democracy empowers this even further.

No, the NSDAP received not even half of the votes. The conservative, bourgeois parties supported Hitler because they hoped he'd get rid of the Communists for them. Without their support, Hitler could have never taken over.

>If they wish to abandon their democracy, then that is their fucking choice and yes it is a fault in democracy.
That's not how a stable democracy works though. If you allow people to abolish democracy, through the democratic process, then you're enabling them to take that choice away from the generations to follow, because those will grow up in a dictatorship they've never chosen.

>Democracy assumes that people would never consent to be governed by a tyrant, and this is flat out wrong.
Which is why it takes a solid constitution. Without a solid constitution to make sure that the elected leaders don't turn into tyrants democracy is completely pointless.

>Furthermore, if you look at some of the longer lasting dynasties, you'll see that they remain just as long as the longest democracies.
They remain, but were they good to their people? Did they allow for social mobility, free commerce, equality in face of the law? Did they provide internal and external stability?

>Democracy doesn't do anything for stability and order, it simply gives people political power and thereby makes them a political resource.
It allows people to non-violently overthrow the government every few years. This is an enormous benefit. Also, due to the people electing the government, the government needs to make sure to be reasonably populist - it cannot ago against the most basic interests of its people on a significant level.

This too is another decisive weakness. If the Monarch leaves no heir, if the Monarch is to be killed or if he dies due to illness or loses his mind, then the country is in peril. Too much depends on one man.

>People consent to be governed in all political systems.
Not necessarily. People might be discontent with how things are, but in order to make them willing to give up their very existence in order to overthrow the current government things have to get really bad. So in a country where people can't elect new leaders they might be living in a constant state of discontent, that just isn't bad to a degree where they pick up arms. A democracy provides the potential for things getting better through elections.

>Or hell, it doesn't even prevent tyranny by a minority. The US politcal system today is dominated by big business. The Roman political system was dominated by the military and the wealthy. The Greek politcal system was dominated by the wealthy. This isn't uncommon whatsoever.

It was stable enough to keep the public from revoltng for a thousand years or two. And you mistakenly assume that those are necessary conditions for a happy public.
>It allows people to non-violently overthrow the government every few years.
But that's not at all what happens. You're still constrained to the platforms that they choose, you're still using the same constitution (if you have one), and political system, you still have the same major economic forces, you still have the same military leaders, you still have the same public that dominates opinion. And you assume that people are able to fulfill their own desires. People don't understand politics on average anon, look at all of the terrible fucking representatives they've elected in the past. I'm willing to bet it's equal to or less than reliable as a hereditary government with a kind and his advisors.

I've always wondered about people complaining about a lack of 3D manoeuvres in LOGH.

First of all, their formations are 3D, so 3D manoeuvring would result in firing lines being crossed.

Second, manoeuvring primarily serves the purpose of maximising ones firing efficiency or minimising the enemy's firing efficiency. In order to achieve that, planar manoeuvres are more efficient than spatial manoeuvres.

While LOGH is hardly, realistic, a lack of spatial manoeuvring in combat isn't the problem.

>If the Monarch leaves no heir, if the Monarch is to be killed or if he dies due to illness or loses his mind, then the country is in peril. Too much depends on one man.
One man can be replaced by any of his contemporaries, it's incredibly unlikely that he was indispensible unless you have based your monarchy around heredity-and it isn't flexible in these times. This speaks to a poor autocracy rather than autocracy being a poor system. Because an autocracy at its best has the most competent person in charge as the system is inteded to foster his advancement.
>Not necessarily
Yes necessarily. If at any point an individual becomes so unhappy with his government that he wishes it destroyed, he can try to do so or he can leave (by force if necessary). If he doesn't even attempt, then he doesn't deserve politcal change. Similarly if you don't vote you don't get to complain about the policy. But wait, I can raise the same concern you did here-any idividual can disagree and suffer from majority decisions. A majority is not necessarily any more just than an individual, in fact they're much more likely to act in your interests when they realize that all of their power comes from the public and they are the person held accountable for all failure unlike in a democracy where you can only blame the ephemeral majority opinion.
>The antique democracies didn't allow everyone to vote though and votes often weren't counted equally
Did you not read all of the issues?
Economic power will alays influence politics more than an individual. Military might will always influence politics more than an individual. This is why these things are problems in the first place.

>And every choice that the previous generation makes politically will invetably affect the future generation and they had nothing to do with it.
They get to make their own choices to change the current course if they disagree with it though. If they want to make changes AT ALL when a dictator is in charge, they'll have to overthrow that dictator first, sacrifice themselves and plunge the country into chaos.

>It was stable enough to keep the public from revoltng for a thousand years or two. And you mistakenly assume that those are necessary conditions for a happy public.
But they are necessary conditions. I'd be unhappy without those, and they were major reasons for the revolutions in Europe. Also, keep in mind: before the public starts to revolt, things have to get really bad. They don't just give up their existence simply because things aren't going too well - shit has to be really fucked up for people to revolt. In a democracy, people just have to vote for someone else if things are pissing them off, the hurdle to vote for someone else is much lower than the hurdle to revolt. This means that a democratically elected leader has less leeway when it comes to pissing off his subjects than a dictator who knows that he can take things much further before revolutions happen. And the result of this is that the will of the people will generally be better represented within a democracy than in a dictatorship.

Said platforms allows for political changes to be made, which is your goal.

>you're still using the same constitution (if you have one)
The constitution comes as a dogma: it is assumed good.

As I said: changes to the democratic process aren't fair to generations to come. It can't be gotten rid of.

>you still have the same major economic forces
Economic forces are private business. The government has no say there.

>you still have the same military leaders
The military is subject to the government. Clausewitz himself declared war a tool of politics.

>you still have the same public that dominates opinion
You have a vote yourself, and if you think there's a very important issue that people need to keep in mind you're free to campaign for said issue.

>And you assume that people are able to fulfill their own desires. People don't understand politics on average anon, look at all of the terrible fucking representatives they've elected in the past. I'm willing to bet it's equal to or less than reliable as a hereditary government with a kind and his advisors.
I don't necessarily think people understand politics, and perhaps they could have elected better leaders. However, due to the leader depending on the goodwill of the people, the leader can't go completely opposite. This provides a good check. How could a hereditary government be better? Current day Monarchs might seem nice, now that they've been neutered, but in the past, they were a bunch of cronies who mostly served their own interests. You don't want to give these people power again.

Of course things can be good or bad independently from the political system. But I see a lot more potential for abuse and shit really hitting the fan with some sort of dictator in charge.

>They get to make their own choices to change the current course if they disagree with it though. If they want to make changes AT ALL when a dictator is in charge, they'll have to overthrow that dictator first, sacrifice themselves and plunge the country into chaos.
That's assuming that it's not a constitutional ruling or some other form of permanent law. these are not infrequently passed. And you also assume that an actual revolution is necessaily violent. Seriosly, all you need is a good assassin.

With modern firearms this might not be too hard any more, but in the past, assassinating people wasn't that easy.

Also, if you're dealing with a hereditary form of government, where the Monarch can only be an aristocrat, chances are things aren't necessarily going to improve, since he might see things exactly the same way as the previous Monarch.

I hole-hardedly agree, but allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go. Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn't take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It's clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother's mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake.

And the result of this is that the will of the people will generally be better represented within a democracy than in a dictatorship.
A democratically elected leader can fuck up as much as he likes so long as he doesn't commit any impeachable offenses- and even then it's liekly not his life on the line. A monarch has to worry about assassination at all times and the good will of all of his subjects. I think you're assuming that only the public can create an interregnum of note here, any single person in an autocracy can create a major political change if they play their cards right while in a democracy you need to go through an extensive poltical campaign.
>Said platforms allows for political changes to be made, which is your goal.
Not necessarily, they might both focus on non-issues, they might simply be running on character alone (because that's what people vote on in the end anyway, Carter won this way, so have others)
>As I said: changes to the democratic process aren't fair to generations to come. It can't be gotten rid of.
Then a constitution isn't democratic.
>The military is subject to the government. Clausewitz himself declared war a tool of politics.
The military is an organization of individuals like any other institution. Should any one of them have the support of their troops (even a fraction of the military) you have the potential for a coup. I don't give a damn what Clausewitz said, a soldier can be a politcian the same as anyone else.
>You have a vote yourself, and if you think there's a very important issue that people need to keep in mind you're free to campaign for said issue.
But if public opinion is against you nothing will come of it. Sometimes you can't convince people to see reason. No one wants taxes coming out of a paycheck.

The exact same thing can be said of an autocracy. Every political system is a social contract by defintion.
>How could a hereditary government be better?
They're just people, anon. People can be taught like anyone else. In a hereditary system, you have people whose existence is defined by governance and who are educated with this in mind. If this fails, it reflects on the teachers and not the individual alone. On the other hand, anyone can run for office relatively speaking. And contrary to popular history there have been good monarchs, in truth most were pretty unremarkable. It's because we learn about the war of the roses and all of the inquisitions that we believe monarchs are impetuous assholes. These are the excpetion not the rule.

The bureaucrats merely execute the will of those in charge.

Also, what you hold against democracy applies to non-democratic systems as well: except that you have even less say in the matter, so that argument doesn't really count.

>social mobility
>yes.
Very much no. Could a peasant become knight? No, he couldn't.

>depends on the political views of the monarch.
Exactly my point: it all depends on the good will of the monarch.

>no, thank god for that. that is the most stupid thing.
So, some aristocratic lout counts more than an upstanding bourgeois? You're looking at things from your American perspective. Monarchy is something that never happened there. I live in Europe, Monarchies, where aristocrats held actual power, aren't too long gone.

>we just have to wait 4 more years until these people that were selected by g-d's chosen can switch sides and play the same game again!

>A democratically elected leader can fuck up as much as he likes so long as he doesn't commit any impeachable offenses
The hurdle for a democratically elected leader to not be re-elected is MUCH lower than the hurdle for a despot to get assassinated or violently overthrown through revolution. One requires you to simply vote for someone else, the other requires you to pick up arms and risk your life, possibly sacrificing yourself and the future of your family in case you have one, plunging the whole country into chaos.

>A monarch has to worry about assassination at all times and the good will of all of his subjects.
No, this is historically wrong. Assassinations have never been that big of a deal, simply because it wasn't that easy to kill people. You have this weird idea about Assassin's Creed style ninjas who flip around and murder people, but this isn't historical reality. Bad leaders weren't commonly assassinated, in fact, bad leaders were very good at not getting assassinated.

>any single person in an autocracy can create a major political change if they play their cards right
No. How would some peasant even get to the court? And even if he somehow got to court, how could he make his voice get heard, how could the monarch listen, and if he did, would he understand and be willing to act? The chance is slim as hell.

>Then a constitution isn't democratic.
It's not like constitutions can't be changed, but people should be careful about it.

>Should any one of them have the support of their troops (even a fraction of the military) you have the potential for a coup.
A standing military always poses that risk, which is why people need to keep a close eye on it.

>a soldier can be a politcian the same as anyone else
Only if he's not actively serving.

>>
>>263817862
>The exact same thing can be said of an autocracy. Every political system is a social contract by defintion.
No, it can't, because an autocracy needs to be violently overthrown, thus the hurdle for people to get up and make a change is much higher. In order for people to be willing to die to make some changes, things need to be really fucked up.

>They're just people, anon. People can be taught like anyone else.
How are you going to make sure they don't develop a class conceit? As I said earlier: don't mistake the current monarchs with those of the past. A monarch has a mind of his own too and if he has the power, there's no guarantee he won't make use of it.

>And contrary to popular history there have been good monarchs, in truth most were pretty unremarkable.
This is completely true. Things aren't necessarily going to be completely fucked up under a monarchy. However, they can easily be in a consistent state of "bad", just not bad enough for people to take up arms.
>>
>>263819297
>you're thinking of feudalism not monarchy. you're dumb.
How are you going to keep monarchy from going back to that? If you give a certain case of people power by birth, what is going to keep them from going back to the feudal age?

>we're talking about monarchy here kiddo, not aristocracy or feudalism.
You have to choose the monarch from somewhere. Where are you going to take the monarch from if not from aristocratic families? You can't have monarchy without an aristocracy. Otherwise you have no candidates to take your rulers from.

>The hurdle for a democratically elected leader to not be re-elected is MUCH lower than the hurdle for a despot to get assassinated
You know how easy it is to assassinate someone?

>You have this weird idea about Assassin's Creed style ninjas who flip around and murder people, but this isn't historical reality. Bad leaders weren't commonly assassinated, in fact, bad leaders were very good at not getting assassinated.
Actually I was thinking more along the lines of poison in the tea, but you know, feel free to dramatize. And in historical reality, we don't have records of assassination attempts because that's not something that you tell the public. And despots are regularly thrown out of power historically even if not by assassination. It's rare for a despot to be a good enough ruler that he is able to maintain his hold on the public. And we're talking structure in this sense, not history. It's only become easier to kill someone.
>No. How would some peasant even get to the court?
We're not talking feudalism here. Any individual doesn't have to strictly abide by his social rules and those that do are soomed to servitude anyway. They're submissive by nature.
>It's not like constitutions can't be changed, but people should be careful about it.
They most certainly are not supposed to be.
>A standing military always poses that risk, which is why people need to keep a close eye on it.
Great advice. Keep a close eye on it. And what are you going to do when there's a problem? They have all of the guns.
>Only if he's not actively serving.
Again, no soldier is on duty 24/7 so much that they can't make a few connections.
You need to stop thinking so much in terms of current political systems and more of the abstract democracy vs autocracy. While things might be a certain way now or might have been a certain way then that doesn't mean that they must be this way.

I mean shit, that's as difficult as it can possibly get as far as circumstance goes, but it fucking happens anyway. Don't tell me a monarch has to be overthrown violently. Things weren't even that terrible in Iran at the time. Democracy is what really fucking ruined it.

>You know how easy it is to assassinate someone?
It isn't. Real life is not Assassin's Creed. And even if you do, what is going to change? You think the next monarch is going to let his subjects boss him around like that? He'll just invest in better security. And this also takes a lot of preparation, so lots of people need to be really pissed off - pissed off enough to risk their lives for it. The kinds of things that make you pissed off enough to risk your life are a lot worse than the kinds of things that piss you off enough to simply vote for someone else.

I can't believe I'm actually having that debate. You're arguing that it's easy to make changes in a dictatorship because you can "simply" kill the dictator. Not even knowing what happens afterwards and pretty much risking your whole existence for it in case you fail.

>We're not talking feudalism here.
Again: if you give a certain caste of people power by birth you end up with feudalism.

>Any individual doesn't have to strictly abide by his social rules
They don't, but the monarch might. And it's not custom listening to peasants.

>Great advice. Keep a close eye on it. And what are you going to do when there's a problem?
You intervene. If things have gotten to a point where the whole military is willing to overthrow the elected government, then you're in trouble - but this also depends on what the military consists of. The military isn't necessarily a private mercenary force, it consists of regular people too. They have family outside of the military, they have the right to vote and they might not approve of some dictator taking over. The government can intervene before it gets that far.

The next faggot will realize that all of his power is only his because people are lending it to him, and his advisors will see fit to remind him. All it takes is noncompliance or action, as it does in any fucking political system. You want to change something in a deomcracy when public opinion is against you? Good fucking luck, you are fighting the public. You want to change something in a monarchy? Send it through the proper channels, if not then you either do the same thing you would in a democracy and get other people to support your cause with the same results you would get in a democracy(likely even more expediently), and if not then you withdraw your support from your leader either through violence or noncompliance. Both work and have been necessary in democracies and monarchies alike.
>Again: if you give a certain caste of people power by birth you end up with feudalism.
Who said anything about a caste?
>And it's not custom listening to peasants.
Who says a monarch can't listen to the lower classes? He's the one that gets to decide that.
>The government can intervene before it gets that far.
Yeah, they can ask them nicely. If these soldiers are participating in the political act in the first place, they've probably already thought of their families, and what they'd say.
>>
>>263822885
>The next faggot will realize that all of his power is only his because people are lending it to him, and his advisors will see fit to remind him.
Or he might simply get more careful and make an example out of those who dare oppose him. And keep in mind, a monarch has much more to fear from his fellow aristocrats than from the public. The public doesn't regularly interact with the monarch.

>You want to change something in a deomcracy when public opinion is against you? Good fucking luck, you are fighting the public.
You're not supposed to be able to change something when the public is against you. The constitution protects your basic rights but beyond that you're not supposed to change something if the majority disagrees.

>Who said anything about a caste?
How are you going to recruit your monarch then?

>Who says a monarch can't listen to the lower classes? He's the one that gets to decide that.
He can, but why would he? It's just a peasant.

>Yeah, they can ask them nicely.
No, they have the means to strip certain people off their power (I don't know how it works in the US, but at least in civilised countries that's the case) and it takes a major military conspiracy in order to keep them from that.

And I'm saying this is a problem frequently the public is looking out for their own interests, not the interests of the nation or of the individual.
>How are you going to recruit your monarch then?
First of all a caste is more than one person. Second, the best system would likely be selecting candidates from an education system. I dunno, never been tried as far as I'm aware. On the other hand you could just have the previous monarch appoint a non-family experienced successor.
>He can, but why would he? It's just a peasant.

>>263824839
>And I'm saying this is a problem frequently the public is looking out for their own interests, not the interests of the nation or of the individual.
I don't think this is a problem. Everyone is a lobbyist of his own interests after all. It's the politician's job to find a middle ground between doing what's good for the nation and between not pissing off the people too much that they still believe their interests to be represented to a sufficient level.

>First of all a caste is more than one person.
Yes, a hereditary monarchy usually requires a royal family.

>Second, the best system would likely be selecting candidates from an education system.
How? Choose the guy with the best grades?

>you could just have the previous monarch appoint a non-family experienced successor
This wouldn't make much of a difference because he'd probably choose someone he knew very well, which would limit the candidates to a circle of close friends. It would only result in some sort of cronyism.

>In matters that apply on a broad range or in a very important area, small issues will reach the top of government after undergoing a reveiw process.
In a monarchy, with an aristocracy around which looks out for their interests, getting yourself heard is much harder though.

That's representative democracy and works on the idea that the public is indeed complete shit at government. But the problem here is that they're still electing this person, so this person is still going to act in their interests and not in the state's interest.
>How? Choose the guy with the best grades?
I don't know anon, the idea is to leave it to professional educators. I'm not one of those.

But it would guaruntee his experience which is really all that is necessary for a decent ruler.
>In a monarchy, with an aristocracy around which looks out for their interests, getting yourself heard is much harder though.
Tell me how this isn't a problem in a democracy because what I'm advocating is basically the judicial review process. Every monarch is to some degree in touch with what is happening to his subjects as he must legislate around these issues. I don't see any unique problem here.

If he's responsible he'll do both. But in the end, I'd argue that the people's interest weighs heavier than what is perceived as the state's interest.

I've dealt with professional educators long enough to know that they aren't infallible either.

He wouldn't necessarily be an experienced leader. It all seems to depend too much on the opinion of singular people to be secure in my opinion.

>Tell me how this isn't a problem in a democracy
It isn't as much as it is in a monarchic system. A legitimate cause that has the majority behind it can have the leverage to move politics. The democratic process provides the means for that and it doesn't depend on the goodwill of the monarch. A monarch might or he might not act. And he has a lot more leeway when it comes to not-acting, because before people pick up arms to remove him, things need to really get bad.

Singular people who have gotten to where they are based on merit alone and not financial/media power like you have in a democracy. More people voting on an issue means nothing if they're inept at it. The decisions of many people aren't necessarily any more qualified than those of a few.
> but isn't modern democracy based on Rousseau who said the state's interest was the people's interest.
The same can be said of any political system.

The peoples' interests cannot be served if the states' interests are not served.

>As long as he doesn't piss off his financial supporters or do anything illegal, he's likely to get reelected.
The important issue is: he can't piss off the people.

>Singular people who have gotten to where they are based on merit alone and not financial/media power like you have in a democracy.
This isn't necessarily true. As with all cronyism, you can get ahead simply by getting along well with someone. Why would you think that some small group of people who look out for each other would be better than those chosen by the majority? You'd essentially end up with what you expect it already is: a small circle of Jews in power.

>The peoples' interests cannot be served if the states' interests are not served.
The issue is: the state's interest can be served without the peoples' interest being served. And it also depends on how you define "state". Especially in the monarchic context, we could quote Louis XIV on what the state is.

The show only has one gay guy, and he got 10 seconds of screen time.
Luckily, he was portrayed in a positive light and as a good guy. I think.

The death of Yang and the death of Reinhard are the only times I have ever started tearing up while watching anything, /v/. Is there something wrong with me?

No.
You are a good person, that's all.

Oberstein's death was the most tragic, especially how the narrator comments that no one grieved for him.
