Should we get a King ?

My remark applies to all countries, this is why I said "we" without being more precise.

So, what I see is that, in all countries there is growing divide within the civil society. Recent elections in the USA, UK, France, Netherlands, etc… have shown it. This is causing tensions, fights, and more generally a very deleterious atmosphere.

This trend seems to spread very fast worldwide, and getting worse year after year.

So, I am wondering, would restoring a King be the solution to all this mess ?

A King is a figure who is above partisan quarrels. He also represents a stability and sustainability. I think this is what we need to sort and build a society appeased.

A King? What a surprising idea, considering that people got rid of them more or less violently in some countries. Do you mean a King with an executive power, or a King (Queen), like in the United Kingdom, Spain, Belgium, etc… who has mostly only a symbolic representation, without real power?

I am not fan of having a leader who is not chosen by the people. Even if people don't always make the "right" choice, it's still the will of the people who should mind.

A big problem, today, is the legitimacy of "our" leaders. Yes, we are democracies, yes, we vote (more or less directly) for our leaders. But, does it make them legitimate? I hear some saying that, "yes", other wise, you are against democracy, but let's face it, how often are leaders elected because of who they are, and their ideas? Today, citizens first vote "against" someone, instead of "for" someone. Look at talks with politicians, they keep attacking their opponents, and explaining why they are bad, and why you should not vote for them, but, they barely never gives arguments as to why we should vote for them.

A King? In the old time, Kings were taking their legitimacy from the God, and because of people being deeply believers, that was good enough. But today, things have changed.
