King or Queen of England

by David
(Chofu)

Queen

Queen

To be honest, I am kind of envious that the UK has a king/queen. When I was small, I just thought that the king or queen was "useless," or just a symbol to the country. But now I think that I was too naive then.

The movie "The King's Speech" well generalized the importance of the king: to encourage the ordinary people and unite the citizens properly.

Today, in China, there is a very big problem, and that is the nationalism is too strong on average, which is easy for authorities to take advantage of. And a king/queen is able to add some humanity to it and relieve this situation, because instead of invisible nationalism, a real man/woman can make people more rational.

In the end, I want to emphasize that the "king/queen" that I mentioned above is the England-style "kind/queen," which means that he or she has no power to interfere with politics. A person with absolute power is definitely a disaster.
