Atheism in a Monarchy
Monarchs believe They have the divine right to rule. So if you are an atheist in a monarchy does that make you a traitor by thought?

RE: Atheism in a Monarchy
If the alternative is electing the Rt Honourable A. Fucking Politician to head of state instead, I'll take D.G. REX/REGINA any day. At least they're harmless.

By the vague deist interpretation we've got going on these days (Defender of the Faith! without a specific faith...) it really just means "by virtue of past events having led to the present situation, we take this as tacit approval by whatever higher power might have been involved if any, and if none then that's just how it is anyway".

RE: Atheism in a Monarchy
Monarchy is a form of religion.
Power through inheritance.
Implying that they are better than the average mortal men.

A christian monarchy, however, is a contradiction because of the 2nd commandment. Thou shalt not have gods before me.

You are aware that almost all power and wealth is hereditary, yes?

That only shows that an ancestor was above-average, in accruing privilege. The inheritor needn't be; only competent enough not to lose it all.

RE: Atheism in a Monarchy
the question is evil

as if u were saying that ruling others is not only an absolute right for some to do, but also all the livings of that kingdom must b slaves as cannot have any right to think for themselves

while ruling is never about thinking for others nor for livings

evil is the insistence to destroy the present for the powers of wills

so by meaning smthg or a will, evil is what would first kill any objective value so there wont b a present thing while also sponsoring worse things to look like being present so the will could b shown as being superior

RE: Atheism in a Monarchy
Traitor to atheism? No. Atheism says nothing about secularism. You can still be an atheist and believe that a pure theocratic society is of no concern, or even beneficial.

Traitor to reason and ethics? Yes. It's an amazing and disgusting relic (whether in practice or "symbolic" .. symbolic of WHAT I ask you).

There's also monarchy via nepotism. Monarchy all but in name ... essentially the reverse of symbolic monarchies. Instead of titles without power, we have no titles but with very real power.
