Everyone has their own views on situations and even if they are apolitical as a head of state they make their views known to the government entities so they can't represent all the people either they are just pretending to.

They don't hold elections trying to find someone to represent everyone but to find the person who represents the majority. People have differing opinions so no one can possibly represent everyone's views unless they are lying to some.

And at least there is robust accountability.  Democracy isn't perfect but - IMO - it's preferable to power inherited via vagina lottery.

You could argue though, that many politicians in a democratic govenment are where they are because of vagina lottery. I mean, let's be real here, George W. Bush (and his brother Jeb) would've been nothing without the name and connections of GB Sr. Same with the Kennedy family, and many politicians are sons of former politicians.

They may have been born into a political family but they had to be voted in to get the job.

The Kennedy's were a political Dynasty but it didn't get Teddy the Presidency.

Agreed, but they still had to get voted in, which meant they still had popular support of the people.

I don't get a choice with Chuck and Wills. I just have to accept their greatness and position.  I'll be buggered if I'll curtsy to that petulant pony Wills.

Well, I’ve lived in four European monarchies.  King Didn’t like any of them but had to pay my high taxes (still paying to one) thus finance the royal parasites like a good girl…  Confused Couldn’t do a think about it.  Angry Again, as a citizen of an old strong republic I managed to kick out of the Palace my lousy President  Whistle (yes, I know, but everybody has only one vote, so… workers of the world, unite!  Hug and suchlike…)

If the BRF is modernizing itself a lot, then two people seems to help hasten its roll back to the past, circa Le Roi Soleil.
