Every Country has their aristochracy ....

Yes every country which has ha some form of stability for at least one generation.

By any other name - the modern Russion oligarchs are an aristochracy - and the US have families such as the Vanderbilts.

And in these families, which exist in each country we have children, who inherit a huge amount of status and wealth which they never have earned themselves and is theirs by chance of bith and although some will redeem themselves with earnest work and enterprize more do not.

At least the Queen accepts she has a responsibility to the country and she has tried to instill a feeling of responsibility into her children.

And if the English (British?) want the system of a constitutional monarchy

Joseph de Maistre:
Toute nation a le gouvernement qu'elle mérite.
Every country has the government it deserves

and

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Matthew 7:3, King James Bible
