After observing the UK Coronation of Charles III and US Coronation of Joe Biden, I have begun thinking that UK Coronation by God serves the people a lot better than US Coronation by elections.
To many of us who idolize democracy and consider monarchy a thing of history it sounds crazy, but it might not be crazy at all.
The UK Coronation
The UK Coronation was not installing a monarch-authoritarian who forces all the nation to follow his orders and punish those who disobey.
The UK Coronation is an installation of a guardian of God-guided human virtues/morality for the entire nation. The key premise of this Coronation is that this God-guided nation is righteous, and therefore the duty of the guardian is to help people preserve all that.
Although for the last two millenniums religious authorities dogmatized many Bible’s prescripts, at the core of God’s guidance for nation’s righteousness remains the Ten Commandments tailored – with the help of God – to constantly changing life circumstances.
UK Guardian of God-guided national virtues called the Monarch does not need to demonstrate His power before His people – His people know what their Monarch is doing and what they themselves should do. Therefore, new national challenges are resolved by the Guardian-Monarch and His people in a peaceful manner.
The US Coronation
The US Coronation was an installation of a monarch who is convinced that his nation lost her righteousness and now is sinning and therefore his mandate is to make the nation ‘righteous.’
The list of concocted American sins is numerous and increasing – inequality, racism, discrimination, no-diversity in governing, hate, abortion, poor rearing of children, wrong education, not enough state-church separation, no respect for homosexuals, supremacist views, and so on.
US Monarch called President (or Federal Government) needs to prove his ability to eliminate the presumed national sins by his own power, and he needs to establish and demonstrate it. Power means suppression, and suppression makes many angry and unhappy. A nation of angry and unhappy people cannot manage national challenges in a peaceful way.
Of course, similar sins exist in the UK but there the sins are judged and dealt with by God-guided virtues – not by government orders.
The US Coronation is dethroning the national Ten-Commandments-based virtues of individual freedoms and is putting on the throne the authoritarian rules of national obedience.
American government is becoming a god-like monopoly ruling over Americans.
Marriam-Webster: monopoly is an exclusive ownership through legal privilege, command of supply, or concerted action. And that is precisely what our American federal government has become. Many American spiritual/moral leaders protested but not fought against.
How the Ten Commandments were violated and how the violation affected the nation is discussed in detail in this Blog at
What to do? – the people shall restrict the government power and eliminate its power on national morality/virtues
Traditional Judeo-Christian moral virtues were guiding a great American majority on everything – on abortion, family, gender, hate, race, equality, guns, health, education … Virtues of American divergent communities might be different on all that, but they did not try changing the virtues of others.
They knew what Right is and what is Wrong and did not need any government laws for enforcement; they knew that morality is not coming from the government.
The government-monarch changed all that!
