Being a republican, I have massive difficulty to accept that someone can be born in a position no matter what, no need to prove anything. Only members of one family only out of the millions of inhabitants of that country can aspire to a position and all the children of all the citizens will never be good enough. In 21st century, it is a terrible aberration.

Except that in your own country, you are seeing more and more people "being born in a position no matter what, with no need to prove anything", while the children of a very significant portion of your society don't have a hope in hell of advancing beyond poverty.

This isn't a 21st century aberration, your country has redefined the term "royalty".
