Are monarchies the best form of government?

Are monarchies the best form of government, and what specific types? Are any viable in an aggressively capitalistic libertarian world order?

If they provide the greatest degree of justice and glory for a society, it matters less about ugly issues like monarchs creating personal harems at the slight expense of the general population, including Louis XIV's harem of young girls.

    Justice is through the courts and always has been even in the Middle Ages. Justice is independent of the King.

    Monarchies take away the illusion that literally anyone can be in charge of their country

    Most monarchies around the world have a higher standard of living than others.
    But there is also way less of them, 26 monarchies around the world and 159 republics.

    Monarchies invalidate themselves naturally through time, generational power ALWAYS leads to dumber offspring. Look at the plummeting IQ of the Bush family or the Kims in North Korea.

    If you get a great leader, then you're in for a good time. The problem is, when you get a string of bad ones, or a really bad one, there's nothing you can do about it because the system is built around keeping them in power.

    Democracy tends to be more consistent. If we still lived in a world where it was acceptable to have Empires, you'd probably see more monarchs.

      Maybe I really should have used my real question that I deleted: How to monarchies compare to other forms of government, in terms of justice and QOL? Monarchies are actually quite high in both regards, in addition to be relatively long lasting, with historical democracies being on average shorter and devolving into collapse sooner. This is despite biased overweening depictions of monarchical corruption, and the expected waves of bad rulers.

      But hereditary monarchies aren't the only form of monarchical succession. If you don't know basic things about monarchy, you won't be able to provide sharpened views.

        What form of monarchical succession makes enough sense to be put above collective agreement?

          the emperor would choose from generals/statesmen and if he didn't do so than hereditary succession would be enacted to prevent empty throne

            Maybe you could argue something like Rome under the good emperors where the emperor adopts and grooms a good successor but that’s little different than a conventional dictatorship in practice and collapsed the moment a ruler decided he wanted his son to succeed him.

    you won't take a shitty fricked up country and improve it by changing nothing except the form of government. Any country that has drastically improved over time has done so through other means - stronger protection of property, access to justice, freedom of expression, political pluralism, etc. These aren't tied to any particular form of government

      In democracy you are stuck with the ruling party and its "opposition" (kek) too.

      OP - yep, monarchy is the best form of cancer.

        even in "two party" systems like the US there are thousands of parties, the fact that nobody likes them isn't a flaw in the system itself

    What do you mean by "libertarian"? Monarchies of the past were much more libertarian than any modern first world country. You can't be a monarchist without supporting capitalism, if you want to turn a country into a private property held by an individual then you should also be fine with other people owning private property.

        We’re talking about the ideal form of gov.
        If your ideal government is

        “a landlord owns all of the land in the country, including mine and his subordinates can buy and sell the property with me. And by the way no small part of the benefits here are that he dresses fashionably and has great decor”

        You’re submissive and probably a little gay. Nothing wrong with being gay but let’s not beat around the bush here

          Jesus this. It’s not even like they view it as an ideal system, they treat it as a practicality, like it’s the more efficient or organized system when every major country has abandoned its monarchy or relagated it to the status of a tourist attraction.

    Monarchy is just like any other method of organization, it's great until it isn't.

    The problem with comparing political ideologies is that once you set them in a world with competing powers, it very quickly becomes obvious which systems work and which ones don't.

    The systems that DON'T work in this kind of world are isolationist, that much I can say for sure. You need a market to drive innovation, you need to trade with other countries to expand and also build relationships. If you try to go command economy, you'll be slower to innovate and outpaced by others with markets and those who exert their influence outside of their borders.
