“Do you think a king could unite France?
A king would be a symbol of consensus and national unity. Monarchy wouldn’t guarantee political balance, as the Head of State wouldn’t have any real power and wouldn’t have been elected by the citizens. However, it appears to me that the European monarchies – except Spain, a particular case because of the Francoist era – are much stronger when they face political and institutional crises in comparison to the republics.”
“What’s your opinion on that?
In times of “controlled” crisis, it seems highly unlikely that one of these regime will re-appear. But if one day we actually do come face to face with the collapse of our political and economic structure, who knows?”
They’re asking these questions. This is good.
