comment Have there been any efforts by the countries of Europe to restore their monarchies?
@DVK There are no people who view Russia as "Asian". Yes there are people who view it as "unique". Still do not see any connection to Monarchism.

comment Are there any communist leaders without a record of acts we consider as a crime (against humanity)?
@Felix Goldberg I think it answers in that political prosecution is not crime against humanity. Whether to count particular wars such as invasion n Afghanistan a "war of aggression" depends of the speaker's political position. At any rate, the communist countries in total waged less wars that the US alone.

@Felix Goldberg Russians do not understand why some people have to have more rights because of their birth. They more prefer leaders who originate from the simple people. Regarding British monarchy, arguably it significantly limits the extent of democracy in that country because of potential power and influence of the queen.

comment Have there been any efforts by the countries of Europe to restore their monarchies?
@DVK completely unbased statement. Russian monarchy was always German-oriented at least since Peter I, this very much undermined its prestige during WWI because the monarchists often advocated friendship with Germany. Besides this, any political force in Russia associates it with Europe, including the Communists. They very much distinguish between Europe in political and cultural sense and the EU institutions.

comment Was Edward VIII of England forced to abdicate?
I have already read Wikipedia. I think there is no reason to point me there. This is why I am asking it here. "it was widely believed that Edward could not marry Wallis Simpson and remain on the throne" - so what would happen with him if he married but did not abdicate? That is the question. -1.

Greek terms for lictors: ραβδοῦχος, ἀρχι-ραβδοῦχος, ραβδοφόρος. This can be helpful.
