I hate to break it to you, but Europe is not the entire world.CaptainChewbacca wrote:While I agree the majority of the world in the past HAS been for monarchy, a large part of that acceptance was the influence of the Church (at least for the past 1700 years) and the belief in a divine right to rule. Will people who spent over a thousand years in hell still care if God ordained Henry V to rule?Darth Wong wrote:Actually, the majority of the world's population throughout history has been accustomed to monarchy, and despite what you may think, most of them thought it was perfectly natural, just, and right that it should be this way. The population of Hell is going to be largely monarchist in terms of its political leanings. The idea of democracy is going to strike them as strange, and they will not have the reverence for dead American Civil War generals that a modern American does. Far more of them will recognize the name of Caesar.
Monarchism thrived in many different places where there was no such thing as the Catholic Church. Our alpha-dog pack animal mentality gives us a certain natural inclination toward monarchism anyway, as evidenced by the number of people in America today who cheer on Bush every time he increases executive power or takes away individual rights.
