The kings back then, and Emperors; All have the various titles and in the end, when the Kings died or served their term. It was up to the Senate, much like it was during that time after 90 B.C to appoint both. There was no 10 year limit for the kings like there was for the dictators. They served fo...

The Roman kings or Emperors, were not serving for life then. 35 years is capable for any human, young or old. Though if you are the later, you are more likely to die. Wait. Are we talking about the kings or the emperors? The kings back then, and Emperors; All have the various titles and in the end,...

Well not for Rome, but for other places; Yes. Rome had a general code in the senate that no single man could be "king" more then like 10 yrs. Though Caesar and then his Grandson Augustus took over that Mantel entirely, to the point Rome could be claimed as a Theocracy as Augustus declared...

Nowadays, we would probably see them more as Prime Ministers. However, back then they would be considered Kings. Unless, like Caesar did and took over; Which made them a Dictator, if they overstayed their position. The reason Caesar is different, is cause the people wanted him over the republic. Ad...

The Dominate was simply, Dictatorships due to the later period falling into an Anarchist era. This was during the split that I mentioned above, which required councilors to play as generals and reunite it and instill a functioning government. Though it was a Dictatorship until the fall and rise of ...

The Byzantines, basically placed or claimed Monarchism. While the split of Rome and reunification was done through the action of Generals or Councilors playing General depends your view. However, they were not elected by the people to be the Caesar or King. They would basically be Dictatorships, al...

Yes, the Romans were known as dictators basically as they took over a republic. Basically, however many were elected. But not by the people, exception of Caesar. Okay, but would this be just for the Principate? Or would it extend to the Dominate, too? What about its continuation in the Byzantines? ...

Monarchy is more tradition-based, and pretty much always has to do with bloodlines. Dictatorships don't rely on tradition nor bloodlines, but rather is based on military control alone. So, the Roman emperors would not be considered monarchs, but rather dictatorships? More similar to the Japanese st...

If the Korean monarchy is reestablished, then it is the Korean monarchy that succeeds the former monarchy. And why can the DPRK not be considered as a monarchy trying to unite its country again? If they conquer the rest of Korea, would they then be considered a monarchy? As I stated above, though I...

Korea had a monarchy, which was eliminated by Japan. Therefore, neither Koreas a...

Well as far as the DPRK, yes in a form. Sadly, this is a correct assumption. Even though Korea before all the division was a lot better then after. While same with Germany, seeing as they were a Monarchy before becoming well what they are now. So, my confusion remains: what is the difference betwee...

Question to the Monarchists: how do you deal with an inept King coming to power? How do you prevent that? Surprisingly enough this has happened in the past few thousand years we've had monarchy. You get them to abdicate, usually in favor of another family member. Otherwise you are forced to go the ...

Monarchies are not dictatorships because they are historically and culturally part of a nation. In a monarchy, example the German Empire, the Kaiser was supported in legislation by the Bundesrat and the Reichstag. Generally in a dictatorship, these bodies are often ignored. To respond to the latter...

One concept that has always been odd to me is elective monarchy. What makes an elective monarchy different from any other elected dictatorship? Most traditional definitions that we are taught in schools hold monarchy as being hereditary. Well, 1. Monarchies are not dictatorships 2. Elective monarch...

I am a Monarchist simply due to the history, as we have seen humanity has seated kings only to dethrone and replace them with an heir. While every culture has done this, it only in a degree shows that Monarchy is the base human Government form. Before their where kings it was all tribes, so obvious...

I like this, it reminds me sort of like that one game where you had a literal dinosaur zoo.

Meaning many of those with dinosaurs may just have herbivores, so this issu...

Blockades are sometimes needed, just for my opinion. If we look back to the Cuba nuclear crisis, it was a blockade that stalled the Russians from giving nuclear weapons to Cuba. While we can roughly argue civil war as a military conflict, without self-defense. While Section 2 may of covered this, if...

Sadly this repeal can allow comparison to various other means for energy other then fossil fuels. While trying to compare the economic benefits provided by one that provides up to 600,000 jobs to the output for even small nations for 100,000 jobs with roughly 1,000 jobs per a Nuclear plant.

This repeal obviously dismisses fracking as a major contribution a lone to tremors and not from the forming or using of water, but due to being done inefficiently. Which the restrictions forces every Nation to try to use or invent a manner to get it done safely. At the same time, this requires one ...

OOC: This whole thread seems to have become very fun, thing is the repeal does not or is not as strong as the original proposal.
