Monarchy and the Good

On this day, this blogger recalls Bishop Williamson's statement about being uncomfortable around monarchists.

Royal World had a response, in which Mr. Theodore Harvey, amongst other things, said:

It seems to me that in declaring that kings are “insufficient,” the bishop is jousting with straw men; I am not aware of any monarchist claiming that the restoration of kings per se would instantly solve all our problems.
We also recall what the late Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn said in Monarchy and War:
[I]t would be most erroneous to believe that a return to monarchy, even a Christian monarchy, would solve all of our problems. Recall the praise the great monarchist Charles Maurras bestowed on this form of government: “Le moindre mal. La possibilité du bien. (The least evil. The possibility of something good.)”
