Where you fail is that not everything is a two sided coin.
Poor NotBot: unable to back his own assertions, he falls once again to making the straw man.

Of course, I never asserted everything is a two-sided coin.

Of course- you lack the ethics to quote me and you can (have and will gain) change whatever it I said to something else.

Reminding you that I proved you to be, again, a liar

What I said:
(quote)
"There is no middle ground, there is no range of choices."
(/quote)

What you claimed I said (and do notice the quote marks):

(quoted:)
A perfect example of the Excluded Middle fallacy - particularly amusing since you just admitted that there IS a "range of choices".

(/quote)

Now we have you insisting that I said everything is a two-sided coin...

PS: Sweden is a monarchy. the United KING_dom is a monarchy.
There isn't "range" of monarchies anymore than there is a range of 'tails' in a flip of a coin- it is either a tails or it isn't.
Sorry but that statement is simply not true. There are ranges of monarchies.

For example
United Kingdom is a constitutional monarchy and Commonwealth realm. The Queen doesn't wield any real power

Saudi Arabia is a monarchy. King ABDALLAH bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saudhas all the power

That would mean the UK is a monarchy.

And you should be aware that the Anglophiles here don't consider the CIA informative enough to make that call.

What does the Queen of England say?

It isn't any more a monarchy than the UK and the UK is any more a monarchy than Sweden and Sweden isn't any more a monarchy than Japan.

I once played a basketball game against rough elbowing hackers team two on two. Military Police was my partner and I was advised just to feed them the ball. I was left open with game on the line. I shot the ball much to the dismay of military police partner who scored 53 points in one game. To his amazement I swished the basketball and sent rough team home shaking their heads.
