First off, a happy Thanksgiving to you all. Second off, nothing prompted this specifically. Just happened to be on my mind.
I describe myself to people as a Tolkienite. Tolkien called himself an anarcho-monarchist; his idea was basically that the government’s job was to leave well enough alone until it absolutely had to, and the form of government that he saw had the least potential for meddling was monarchy. Think extreme subsidiarity.
I am not an anarcho-MONARCHIST, but I am a believer in extreme subsidiarity. My governmental philosophy can be described as “let the lowest level of authority handle things until a higher level of authority has to intervene”. Whether the monarchy is the absolute best form of government for this philosophy I am too uninformed to say, but I can imagine most forms of government can be structured this way if properly constructed; were I British I’d probably be a monarchist.
So that’s that. It’s simplistic, but the details will all stem from that base.
