Was just reading the Anarchist FAQ and it gives the definition of Anarchy as I understand that from this definition the old types of monarchy (one single powerful order) is in direct contravention to this. However, I want to understand what people's opinions are relating to a constitutional monarchy (essentially the power of the single powerful order has been usurped by the governmental parties...as what happened with James II/George III in England). The capitalist power of the government is therefore also against the true definition of anarchy but where does this put the monarch in that it is a 'rubber stamp'. Is the monarch still considered hierarhical in that laws of treason etc still exist and therefore goes against the above definiion in that it is still a symbol of authority, although ultimately has no real authoirty? Is the monarch still considered hierarhical due to class structure, upper ruling class etc? Is the monarch still considered hierarhical due to the capitalist wealth that they amass? I've posted this for the point of my own learning, understanding and discussion rather than trying to inflame.
