    Monarchy, aristocracy and an established church are starting to look real good right about now.

    Oh yes, but it has to be a real monarchy and a real church. The last two Hapsburgs are looking like creatures of another order these days, but the poor old English have been making do with an imitation church since 1559, and they haven’t had even a convincing imitation of a real monarch since 1688 or 1715, depending how strictly one judges.
