What about Japan? Or was that for different reasons?Plus, most ethnonationalistic countries are shit except something like Israel, I guess, and they're still a pretty shitty country because they're always involved in conflict and shit because most ethnonationalistic countries are very militaristic and hell, most ethnonationalists are militaristic too, so yea. Dumb shit.
There are facets of monarchism as a form of government I appreciate, some of which you've talked about in your post. I think the idea of a benevolent dictator is fine, and can even benefit a people group and country, but for nations like the United States it would be a bridge too far. Some always fire back and bring up political dynasties like the Kennedys or the Bushs, but that's hardly the same thing.you're not wrong, but in time everything fails. How did the US constitution stop the great depression? The US has been lucky with its geography and parasitic relationship with the old world which continues to this day. Because of those two things the people of the US haven't lost faith in the constitution. Americans have had a very prosperous republic to put their faith in with only one major hiccup, that being the great depression.
I praised republics for having an already built thing for the people to worship, that doesn't mean it is better than a monarchy. The citizens of a monarchy build up trust with their ruling house over generations, and often times their faith in the house doesn't break with one or two bad monarchs. It is not uncommon to see republican societies lose faith in their republic over one generation. This is what happened with Weimar Germany and Italy.
A functioning civnat country is undoubtedly good because it can mobilize everyone from all facets of society to work for the state, but the relationship between the citizen and that state is fragile. Your imagined America would be a powerful force, but without totalitarian measures to keep everyone enthusiastic about the regime how long ?
This also brings me to totalitarian countries and their relationship with the citizens. Totalitarian governments sack their citizens of all wealth and use some of that wealth to brainwash everyone to love dear leader and only the purest communism, fascism, national-bolshevism etc.
