In Defense Of Royals

This feels a bit weird, but I am revising my stance, people need heroes to function. I just wish we were more self-actualized to not need that, it’s a weakness that I am never quite comfortable with. And different kinds of people have different kinds of heroes.

Also, elected heads of state and government end up being pretty much the same thing anyways, especially as evidenced in political families.

I do think that constitutional and democratic monarchies are wise though.

Edit: And celebrities function much the same way.
