The Korean Royal Family should stage a coup...
« on: May 04, 2017, 11:18:19 am »
...or at least someone should write a book about it.

Prince Yi Chung is the current air to the Korean Royal title. He looks out at his country and sees it in disarray. It's democratically elected President is corrupt and removed from office. The election to replace her tears a divide within the population that causes fights, riots, and chaos.

Tensions with Korea's northern cousins are at an all time high. The US and nKorea seem bound for conflict and Korea will be caught in the middle.

Korea needs a unifying figure. Someone that will heal the wounds of the last regime and bring peace to the peninsula and end the threat of war. And they need someone that is willing do that at any cost.

Prince Chung sends an envoy to the head of the National Police and the Military. The envoy is close enough to the Prince that he has credibility and can make promises, but far enough away that if someone tries to alert the media, the Prince can claim innocence.

The envoy tells the Police and Military leaders that if they usher him into power, they will be handsomely rewarded. The police will have greater authority and more flexibility. The military will have new weapons and enjoy years of increased spending. They agree. Not knowing that the Prince has greater plans for his new assets. Not only will they secure his position in power, but they will also be the major players convincing the population that a war for reunification is necessary.

The Prince has friends in Parliment. Some that will support him, but they have many colleagues they need to bring to their side. The Prince tells the nationalist party leaders, that with him as King, there will be no need for a President. Instead, the Prime Minister will be elevated and enjoy much greater executive and legislative authority. If the party will ratify his ascent to power, the King will approve of their choice for Prime Minister and they will have free reign to enact the laws and policies they've fought for. As long as their first legislative action is to pass a law that recognizes the King's authority over the nation.

There is one party leader that won't go along with the plan. He tries to act behind closed doors to refute the actions of the Prince and expose the plot to overthrow the democracy. Just as he has enough evidence to go to the press.... he's found dead in a back alley near the capital.

Just as his assassination is making national news, the military sweeps into the capital. The police do their part and quell and citizen uprisings and protests. Once the palace and parliament are secure, the now King of Korea is paraded in. 'A Victory for the People' is his cry. 'Unity at last' the people respond. 'All Hail the King. Long May He Reign.'

England seems fine having a monarchy and a democratic gov't.

The idea that bringing in a monarch means the end of democracy is silly. :shocked:

We 'brought one in' well over a thousand years ago (I don't know when the Saxons started having kings tbh) and have only had a single 11-year break since, it's a bit different.

Not that I really have any idea what this thread is going on about, with these futuristic intrigues and so on, but still.

Ones wh were too autocratic got chased out of power.  One even got his head chopped off.  Then, some were forced to abdicate.  The ones who were allowed to stay were the ones who agreed to let Parliament have most of the power.  Hence the regional German prince who went to jolly old England and has had his family sit on the thrown ever since.  (The Windosr family.)  Many others who were tyrants were kicked out and have become Republics. 

Please Brits, do the rest of the world a favor.  When Queen E goes, don't let Charles ascend to the thrown.  Pass it over to William.
