The magic of monarchy The “renegade” members of the British Royal family — Harry and Meghan — are much in the news these days, so I thought the following essay by a fellow psychologist might be of interest: Republican politician, Jason Smith has criticized The Duke and Duchess of Sussex for dabbling in American politics.
As an analogy; in a democratic constitutional monarchy as in the British system, the government directs the country forward with adjustments left and right, as a rudder directs a boat, and the Monarchy stabilises the country as the keel stabilises the boat, without which there would be too much lurching and drifting left and right with each adjustment of the rudder.
The USA does not have such a system of separating adoration from politics. Without a royal family, US celebrities have become the focus or targets of the American people’s natural tendency to adore and idolise, and celebrities are nearly all leftist campaigners.
There is reason celebrities are nearly all leftist. Most celebrities are natural actors and attention seekers. Celebrities are very image conscious people, as are all lefties. Lefties try their best to be seen as society’s good people. They want to feel good and look good.
