    • Ideas from Chat
      • Types of Monarchy
        • Crowned republic (purely symbolic), Constitutional monarchy (partial and restricted), autocratic (absolute monarchy), elective monarchies
        • Elected Monarchy
          • Famous Examples: governmental system on Naboo in Star Wars, The Holy See (elected by concave), Kingdom of Rome (elected by assemblies), Holy Roman Empire (elected within house of habsburg), Alexander Hamiliton argued before Constitutional Convention of 1787 that the PotUS should be an elective monarch ruling for “good behavior”. (i.e for life unless impeached) Obviously he was voted down.
        • Absolute Monarchy,
          • the monarch rules as an autocrat, with absolute power over the state and government
        • Constitutional Monarchy,
          • the monarch is subject to a constitution. The monarch serves as a ceremonial figurehead symbol of national unity and state continuity. The monarch is nominally sovereign but the electorate, through their legislature, exercise (usually limited) political sovereignty. Constitutional monarchs have limited political power, except in Japan and Sweden, where the constitutions grant no power to their monarchs.[citation needed] Typical monarchical powers include granting pardons, granting honours, and reserve powers, e.g. to dismiss the prime minister, refuse to dissolve parliament, or veto legislation (“withhold Royal Assent”). They often also have privileges of inviolability, sovereign immunity, and an official residence. A monarch’s powers and influence may depend on tradition, precedent, popular opinion, and law.
        • Emperors
          • In other cases the monarch’s power is limited, not due to constitutional restraints, but to effective military rule. In the late Roman Empire, the Praetorian Guard several times deposed Roman Emperors and installed new emperors. The Hellenistic kings of Macedon and of Epirus were elected by the army, which was similar in composition to the ecclesia of democracies, the council of all free citizens; military service was often linked with citizenship among the male members of the royal house.

      • Communism,
        • In political and social sciences, communism (from Latin communis, “common, universal”)[1][2] is the philosophical, social, political, and economic ideology and movement whose ultimate goal is the establishment of the communist society, which is a socioeconomic order structured upon the common ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes, money,[3][4] and the state.[5][6]
      • Marxism
        • Marxism is a form of socioeconomic analysis that analyses class relations and societal conflict using a materialist interpretation of historical development and a dialectical view of social transformation. It originates from the mid-to-late 19th century works of German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.
      • (Historical Materialism),
        • Historical materialism is a methodological approach of Marxist historiography that focuses on human societies and their development over time. This was first articulated by Karl Marx (1818–1883) as the materialist conception of history. It is principally a theory of history according to which the material conditions of a society’s way of producing and reproducing the means of human existence or, in Marxist terms, the union of its productive capacity and social relations of production, fundamentally determine its organization and development.
      • Socialism
        • Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterised by social ownership and democratic control of the means of production,[10] as well as the political theories, and movements associated with them.[11] Social ownership may refer to forms of public, collective, or cooperative ownership, or to citizen ownership of equity.[12] There are many varieties of socialism and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them.[13] Social ownership is the common element shared by its various forms.[5][14][15]
