Analogy fail.

I am using analogies to demonstrate how your arguments about social concepts are meaningless as they try to make lines that are blurry clear-cut; in reality, that is meaningless.

Government, gender, nationality and animal classifications are all human constructs with different qualifications, similarities and differences. As a result, it is all but inevitable that many cases will be able to transcend beyond just one family and in term be part of others.

Einstein was a male. He was also German. He was also a scientist.

Kangaroos are mammals. They are also native to Australia. They are also marsupials.

Britain has a monarchy. It is also has a Parliament. It also has elected MPs.

Your analogy, on the other hand, simply compares two physical objects. Not in the same ball park, let alone the same sport.

Facts are, manchild, that Britain is a typical democracy like any other Western country. The only difference between Britain and America is that we have a monarchy, and you a republic - which of course - means that -neither- of our countries are democracies by your own playbook.

Is the USA a republic? Yes or no?

Maybe now you can finally understand why your monarchy question is dishonest.

It is not my fault that you cannot read quotes. You talk about people conspiring to paraphrase you yet here you are, trying to pretend that "system of government" is absent from the quote!

No wonder you have nothing left but playground insults.

Let me help you out- it is third grade English, but I have a half cup of English.

An absolute monarchy is a kind of monarchy.
An hereditary monarchy is a kind of monarchy.
An elective monarchy is a kind of monarchy.

See: the word(s) in front of the noun describes the noun.'Always'.

I.E., when it doesn't, it's called an oxymoron.

Let's see if you've learned anything:

Is a constitutional monarchy a monarchy, yes or no?

Let's take two examples from your list - absolute and elective.

Are they the same? Yes or no?

What happened to the "kind of" term used in your previous examples?

Oh yes - that's right - you are trying to ask a loaded question.

A Constitutional monarchy is a kind of monarchy. It is also a kind of democracy. This is because, my manchild friend, these concepts overlap and thus you see in Britain a representative Parliamentary democracy with a figurehead monarch at the top.

Westminster run the country. Queen pets corgis.

Tell me: why are you dishonestly trying to hide "kind of" from your question? Are you saying that a Constitutional monarchy is the exact same as the umbrella term? Did you think I would not notice?

Yes or no?

Here's a hint: absolute monarchy and elective monarchy.

Best of luck with your English lessons.

Now are kangaroos and goats mammals?

But they are NOT the same!
