‘Democratic monarchy’ was seen,

to be superior to republican arrangements of either the ‘parliamentary’ or ‘congressional’ type;

to repair the flaw in Plato’s political theory left by his unwarranted assumptions about the expected reliability and numbers of philosopher rulers; largely

to be present in a lenient interpretation’ of Kant’s republicanism and wider philosophy;

to provide the best contingency plan for Marx’s classless society; and

to formulate the model which would seem to be more firmly rooted in Hegel’s wider system than his own constitutional monarchy.
