Monarchies are no more relevant today than the patriarchy
Seriously. Thereís nothing fair or reasonable or democratic or equal about the HOS being born heir to that position. Everything about is deeply archaic. Very few royals - if anyone? - arenít in the very nature of their existence supporting conservative values.
So yeah. Itís understandable that it can be a somewhat strange position to be in for a man, even if itís sexist and old-fashioned. By all accounts Daniel was a successful self-made business man. He had to give that up and live always in an unequal position simply because of his sex. He wonít be King Daniel. Had Daniella married Victor, she had become Queen Daniella. Itís possible it bugs him from time to time. I actually think many men would be bothered by a non-equal relationship. Itís not a fantasy they
are raised to strive for after all..
Monarchies are the opposite to democracy, there is no democracy when a Head of State inherits the position.
I think parliamentary monarchies have a place in our societies....if they change with society. Monarchies can't sustain their position in the XXI century if they can't offer INTEGRITY and imparciality for the huge amount of privileges they receive. We've had scandals in every monarchy in Europe for the past 10 years. (I'm leaving non European ones as what's happening in Japan and in the ME is beyond comprehension)
From money in offshore accounts, sex scandals, going on holidays to another country when your own is in lockdown, abusing staff, racism suspicions, affairs, mistresses, children born out of wedlock.... ALL of them are in trouble for the same reason - lack of integrity and too much entitlement of being above everyone else. They need to SERIOUSLY change.
To go back to Daniel's and Vic's video - Daniel is a self made man but it doesn't mean he's not as controlling as Joe Block. This video is awful and one of the reasons is because he's making these comments to his CHILDREN. Estelle and Oscar are not adults, they are influenced by their parents and if this is an example of what Daniel is doing in private, it's no wonder Vic is pissed off. He's emotionally grooming them to be on the side of "poor no.2 papa"
