12th October 2018 in Zagreb, the 2nd Monarchist in the pub event was held, under the patronage of the Croatian Royal Council (CRC). This is a unique monarchist thematic socialization in a pleasant atmosphere of a 19th century Zagreb coffeehouse. In such a leisure and informal atmosphere subjects from Croatian history and contemporary monarchism were discussed. The main topic was; Monarchy or Republic? The question of types of government in the 21st century
On the main subject:
In the wake of global ideological and geopolitical changes the question arises, is our current type of government truly the best one? Some old and new concepts where put on the table for discussion. Based on influential thinkers of our ages such as Aristotle, Plato, Saint Augustine, Saint Thomas Aquinas, Niccolò Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, Ante Starčević, Max Weber until a more recent thinkers such as Crown Prince Otto von Habsburg and Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein. The question arises on how today's European monarchies handle global phenomena like mass immigration, social changes, economic changes ect. Such examples where discussed in relationship to Croatia and how would a parliamentarian form of monarchy handle them rather then a current republic form of government.
After the end of the main debate the informal socializing continued with open subjects to participate in, as well as open leisure conversation. Beside the patronage, members of Croatian Royal Council also participated in the event.
We would like to thank all members for participating in this monarchist social gathering, which in a relaxed atmosphere of a 19th century coffee house discussed historical and current monarchist events and subjects.
