Who is the President of Russia? More like a monarch or more like a democratic leader? Why not declare Russia a monarchy? Or why not make a democracy?
Hello, dear Ladies and Gentlemen!Many believe that there is no democracy in modern Russia, but the authoritarian dictatorship of the Kremlin and the political elite flourishes.Is it true? How strong is the power vertical in Russia? How feasible are the decisions of the President and the Government? How submissive are the people to their ruler, if the regime is really authoritarian?What if we declared our president tsar? How much would his powers be strengthened? How much would enforcement and legality improve? Who thinks why the modern government does not want to become an official monarchy? What do you think is the percentage of the population that wants a monarchy in Russia and is ready to support it?If in the near future, when the powers of the current head of state expire, a zemsky sobor is announced, who would be elected tsar? How realistic is this?Or maybe all this is a misinterpretation of the tactics of our government headed by the president? What can be done in the Kremlin, taking into account the current political situation, to make the state more democratic? Can the president, with the consent of the people, completely rewrite the basic law of the country? make any necessary changes or additions? Will this help?Many people react very painfully to these questions. But let's think carefully about what is best for Russia: strengthening power and a transition (possibly in stages) to a monarchy, or democratizing political institutions and educating society politically?What is our society, our multinational people, closer to-to democracy or to monarchy?Thank you all for participating in the discussion and kindly ask you to maintain a good tone and political correctness.
