Monarchist and Republican Organisations

Sweden have a fairly strong and PR-minded republican organisation that have opinion polls upon opinion polls and i was woundering the following:
Does other monarchies in this board also have such movement and how does the popularity of the monarchy poll in other countries?

If i posted this wrong, i apologize

Note - while Burma and Iran are not declared Monarchies, they do function like Absolute Monarchs.
Note2- the bolded ones are the organizations with the most support/power.
Note3 - as to their power - It has been reported 20% of people in Norway support Norwegian Republicanism. And there are a couple polls for the rest.

Despite the many failings of monarchies and such, I have never known anywhere in history where a republic has been run any better, despite all the hype and nonsense you hear about it. Also, despite everything mentioned to the contrary, they're are rife with class systems of all sorts of manner and form. It's the same old idioms over and over again....the more things change, the more they stay the same....and....in a "classless" society everyone is "equal", but there will always be some who are more "equal" than others. They are no better, and in many cases even worse, than most monarchies. There is a good case for the existence of an institution that is beyond politics but can intervene when that political system becomes moribund, corrupt and/or overreaches itself. An institution that represents all of the people and their interests and not just the interests of a particular organisation or party. I'm afraid the modern institution of government is not that organisation. Even less are the political parties which underpin it.

However the type of monarchy we have in Australia is a do nothing because we can do anything ever monarchy.

The monarchs are just figureheads with no power or authority so regardless of what they think of the government and its laws the monarch can't do anything about a political systme that is moribund, corrupt and/or overreaches itself.

The institution of monarchy is so large and complex that to replace it with a republic would mean a change in the entire fabric of government and way of life for hundreds of thousands of people. It has to be said with all due respect to politicians, that none of them in the respective monarchical systems of the world seem to have the courage or brass or whatever you want to call it to despose of a system that has always been there and always seems to be popular (even marginally so) and always finds a way to give value for money. A republic sounds more sleek and less weighed down with the trappings of state but a monarchy gives a special kind of shine to a country that a purely elected government can go only so far to give it's people. It's as if a monarchy should act as a combined PR/political referee elevated branch of the elected government in the respective countries.

To change the form of government in almost any country these days, the costs would be insurmountable.
Because of the inaccessibly of royals, it simply adds to a person's fascination with royalty in general. I myself wonder the purpose of having, and therefore the upkeep of, a royal family in any country. A good tabloid 'read,' itself an oxymoron, is purpose not of a royal family. Emotions definitely come into play concerning royals and their 'subjects.'

I don't understand why people comment on Republican here. But ready.

I think the main institution which supports the monarchy in Portugal is the Royal cause.

In the Netherlands, you'll find 'de Bond van Oranjeverengingen' (federation of orange associations); many communities have an 'orange association' that organizes activities historically centered around the 'family of Orange' (King's Day is the main event).

AFAIK not an official one.

I guess there is no need for one.

The closest thing to official monarchists are I think the Conservative party.

Other then the Communist Party, is there anything in Japan? From what I understand they are the only ones who'd really try to establish something like a Republic of Japan.

As for Thailand, Bhutan, Cambodia, Brunei, Tonga and Malaysia, I'm not really much of an expert on those states I'm afraid.

A Frustrated Monarchist

I'm sorry here, but I'm starting to get beyond annoyed here. It might just be a lack of patience or inexperience with the world on my part, I'm only in my early twenties after all, or just something else entirely I'm not aware of. Heck, maybe it's just I was born in the wrong generation or something

Six years I've been a monarchist, I know you guys have been monarchists longer than yours truly but still.

Here are some of the main things giving me headaches:

The constant restoration articles with not a single hint of progress or a referendum. I'm looking at you Albania, Brazil, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Nepal, and Lybia. I mean why the heck do the article at all if, in the end, nothing happens with republicans and trolls saying good riddance.

I'm tired of the constant deadlock in progress of restoration movements with parties and organizations getting nowhere and consisting of people three or four times my age here Like the Alternative for Germany, the Five Star Movement and the French National Front would be better for your nations anyway. You're telling me that a far-right movement with several neo-nazis and fascists and what not would be better than having a simple referendum. You're telling me that you're fine with the status quo. You're telling me that you're fine with not trying something new or different. Don't tell me that a 2500-year-old form of government that ended up getting swept under the rug by Caeser, in the end, is the best form of government.

I'm tired of the idiocy of the members of the former dynasties themselves. I'm still waiting for new leadership in some of the movements here with a pretender that isn't seen as a quake or a lunatic or whatever. I'm still waiting for better PR teams for the former dynasties and the parties supporting them.

I. Want. Immediate. Progress!

I'd like to see a poll, that is realistic, with restoration in the 30s or maybe the 40s. I'd like to see some more solid debate instead of the same old same old going on with the banana republics of Brazil, Italy, Romania, and Greece. I just want at least something good to happen.

For the longtime members, how do you put up with this? Why isn't much progress being made? Don't give me the usual republicanism is the future okay.

Progress towards what?

The monarchist movements in the countries you mention are very small. They may write their articles but they know that the vast majority of the population want no part of the restoration of their monarchies.

Until or unless there is close to a chance of success the existing governments won't go with a referendum and they know there is no chance so they aren't going to waste the taxpayers money on a folly.

Many countries with a monarchy often have a larger support base for getting rid of the monarchy than any of the countries you have named have for restoring one.

I came to this site a dedicated monarchist but if given the chance, for Australia, I would vote for a republic now. I know we will get the chance again sometime into Charles' reign - it may not happen then but it is on the agenda of the ALP here and there are also many in the Liberal Party who are republicans.

It is more likely that there will be fewer monarchies in the future than there are now. At least two of the Queen's Caribbean realms are regularly talking about voting her out (and they don't need a referendum of the population to do so - just a majority in the parliament but again respect for The Queen is largely now holding them back).

Republicanism and merit based choices for Heads of State is the future, not re-establishing a system that has been discredited in the countries you mention.

You are from the United States. How strong is the movement there for the re-establishment of the monarchy? Surely that is where you should be beginning rather than worrying about the democratic choices in other countries that don't want to go back to a system that limits their own citizens ability to be the Head of State of their nation.

You're wrong. There are strong moves to restore some monarchies. In Portugal, for example, there are more and more people considering themselves to be monarchists, including young people. As long as referendums are not made in these countries you know if these people want monarchy or republic.
