My only intention is to be educated in the opinions of others. Could it be possible for us to formulate a reset button as they did with Augustus? Eventually, transitioning back to a republic?Empire isn't a form of govt, its a grander nation with large imperial holdings outside of the central lands. The Principate, the form of govt that replaced the Senate ruling Republic, was a hereditary monarchy with very limited restrictions imposed by the remaining Senate.
Are you suggesting a monarchy or dictatorship, that is barely constrained from absolute power, is the proper replacement for a republic that is "highly susceptible to corruption," contradiction, and manipulation?
This thread is you suggesting the concept of a republic, specifically the United States of America, is outdated and should be replaced. You provided the problem, now provide the solution. What replaces it that is less "highly susceptible to corruption," contradiction, and manipulation?
