What do you think is outdated about the Monarchy?
Predictably you haven't heard back from him on that question. "Outdated" and "antiquated" are purely subjective perceptions. In point of fact, the monarchy in Great Britain is resilient, evolving and its long history reflects those qualities that enables it to survive. Three hundred plus years ago, others also thought for reasons of their own that the monarchy was "outdated" and "antiquated" and cut off the head of a first Charles. Who survived in the end? In point of fact, if someone wanted to have a meaningful conversation about the meaning of "outdated" or "antiquated", I could point you to the thread above where someone refers to a certain poster no longer present on these boards (long befoe my time) who apparently believes in the "seniority" of the surviving Stuart dynasts. However, the monarchy has moved on in its identity to reflect the majority faith of its subject, and the monarch is the "defender" of that faith. Another actual and even more extreme example of "antiquated" at least in Europe, would be the opposite notion of "God's law above man's law" prevailing in matters of state and choice - and referring there explicitly to the aforementioned person's other penchant for upholding the ludicrous pretence in France of the supposed claims of "le plus ainee" Bourbon descendants to the non-existent French throne.
