Military law in European countries historically emerged as covert legislation by secret royal decree. Covert military law exists in all countries and runs parallel to officially legislated civilian law.
Civilian law in all countries is subordinate to military law. Problems historically arose in republics where military law instead was proposed by the military and secretly approved by the government cabinet. Military law in the absence of constitutional monarchy is generally highly problematic considering that military law was devised as a tool for constitutional monarchy, the guardian of guardians. The problem as many readers of Plato should realize is the following: who guards the guardians in the absence of constitutional monarchy?
While constitutional monarchy may seem classist and antiquated (it ought be neither) has the institution of an executive president proven severely dangerous to emerging democracy and has in fact led to new forms of dictatorship in most countries attempting democratization. A constitutional monarch is raised to to be unselfish and devoting his/her life for the ethical benefit of others while elected presidents are very often clinical psychopaths. This is not to imply that clinical psychopaths should not be allowed to stand in elections but rather that defending and safeguarding democracy as head of state requires a little more than being able to run a successful election campaign. Democracy without constitutional monarchy is in fact always in danger.
The major weakness in constitutional monarchy however is its dependence on the good judgment of the constitutional monarch, yet good judgment is something that ought, can and need be taught to everyone by learning from historical examples of ethical courage and historical misjudgment respectively.
There were historically elaborate princely, royal and imperial courts as centered on the persona of the majesty. These were both social and sexual institutions of elaborate finesse and gynocentric behavioral sophistication. Yet royal courts did not solely exist for the fun of it as the majesty in literally lacking nothing could thus not only be raised to be unselfish but could live fully unselfish also politically since s/he did not need to worry about material needs, sexual access, purpose in life, personal security, the future and so on and so forth. The institution of the royal court in fact was the very social institution which allowed the majesty to lead an unselfish political life in the service of the public.
Constitutional monarchy is not only essential for democracy but also for safeguarding processes of democratization. Democracy is the rule of virtues of freedom and so constitutional monarchy is precisely essential for defending the rule of virtues of freedom. There is a British expression from the era of Victoria, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland as well as Empress of India: “the Queen reigns but does not rule”.
What became liberal democracy historically emerged in the context of European monarchs sharing power with a government by the people, of the people and for the people. Constitutional monarchy is thus part of the democratic system of division of powers which first emerged from the division of power between the Catholic church and European monarchies.
In the 1972-2016 period did most of the Western intelligence world turn increasingly calamitous with severe consequences for persons both within and beyond the intelligence world. Intelligence operatives were reduced to enslaved intelligence prostitutes. Protective recruitment was severely abused by police intelligence to coercively recruit elected politicians, leaders of civil society, journalists, civil servants and others on a vast scale. Police intelligence developed a symbiotic relationship with organized crime and the patriarchal intelligence world generally went thoroughly criminal in not only protecting but becoming fully complicit in the running of organized crime.
It is clear that not only does democracy and democratization very much need constitutional monarchy but a constitutional monarch needs a noble court as a social institution in order so as to be able to function properly and optimally in every way. Western intelligence agencies were traditionally run by royals and high nobility, yet with the enslavement of intelligence operatives in most of the intelligence world in the 1972-2016 period did it become much more difficult for royals and high nobility alike to perform their life tasks of protecting the rule of the virtues of freedom.
The French revolution although bringing many benefits descended into the reign of terror of those with distinctly less than noble intentions. We need understand that division of powers is essential for democracy but also that the guardian of guardians is essential for supervising the proper workings of all branches of government. Constitutional monarchy is essential for ensuring and safeguarding freedom, emancipation and representative governance and so it is precisely essential indeed that a constitutional monarch is precisely enabled to function in an optimal manner.
A constitutional monarch has absolute powers under secret military law yet knowing when to intervene and not to intervene with the various branches of government is a most delicate question indeed. A constitutional monarch cannot be selfless in the sense that s/he has to protect her/his court and defend democracy by defending constitutional monarchy itself. However, in order to be able to lead an unselfish political life is her/his noble court as a social institution precisely essential indeed in performing unselfish service to others. We need understand that protecting democracy is an essential task of every citizen and so we need all play our part.
Constitutional monarchy is essential for preventing abuses by the various branches of government including the system of justice, the intelligence services, the military and indeed institutions of executive government itself. Being a constitutional monarch is the most difficult and challenging job in the world that truly requires profound commitment to unselfish service to freedom, emancipation and representative governance.
