    As long as there is poverty in countries which have a monarchy, the people are backwards because they haven't got their priorities right, and except getting ripped off on a regular basis.

    The U.K, Japan, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and more, so, SO backward! One day they will move out of their caves and into mud huts with all mod cons. Who knows, maybe one day, one of them will invent the wheel.

    A Constitutional Monarchy, say like the UK, can be fairly civilized and produce good results. Totalitarian Monarchies rarely are (sorry Saudi Arabia, I'm looking at you).
