The State Of The British State

Flattr this

Having built an empire, perhaps the greatest and the most enduring in the history of civilization since Henry VIII about 600 years ago, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland – the union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (UK) – is a non-Republican constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary democracy.

The gradual shift of power to the commoners, since the Magna Carta was presented to John I in 1215 in England by the nobles about 500 years after the Franks aided the Venetians form a republican empire in the Doge, has made the British monarch the figure head of a strong parliament of elected representatives, while the French republic after the revolution in 1789 produced a strong head of state and a weaker parliament by the time Charles de Gaulle had become president of France after World War II.

Britain and France, the Anglo-French European Enlightenment order which had borne the United States in 1776, are once again poised on seminal change, toward becoming post-Platonic states, direct democracies run by a non-hereditary unitary executive and appointed and career civil service cadres working together directly with the people without the need for a parliament (or Congress as in the case of the United States) in a direct tele-democracy to elect the unitary executive and to legislate.

The prospective end of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II in the UK presents the British people with a situation to make a historic decision: should the monarchy after this queen be ended in preference for the French arrangement of a strong presidency and a weak parliament en route to, together with France, direct tele-democracy?

“We the People” of United States of America are almost already there.
