  •  I was unaware that monarchies were fascist (0+ / 0-)

    But, FDR's definition most certainly declared every monarchy a fascist state.
    I'm sure it went over well with England.

    •  The British royal family don't own (0+ / 0-)

      the British government. They have no control over the British government at all. They are figureheads only. The British government is a constitutional monarchy, with all the real governing done by the House of Commons, whose members are elected by the citizens. There is even sporadic talk of doing away with the monarchy altogether - something that could hardly be done if the Royals owned the government.

      But nice try.

      •  But At Least They Have Entertainment Value (0+ / 0-)

        And they are good for tourism too!

        Seriously I think that is why the sham monarchy still exists.

        Of course they also contribute to highlighting different causes so they can hardly be called lazy, but they could do that without all the fireworks.
