"The monarch is a responsible person. The fact that a monarch is responsible "to God alone," rather than to an assembly or a popular majority, is rather shocking to an agnostic mind; but while God cannot be fooled, the masses can."
Libertarian Monarchism (LibMon) is an economically right, civically libertarian, culturally variable, but generally right-wing and Monarchist ideology which believes that a libertarian society should be ruled over by a Constitutional Monarchy.
The history of the Libertarian Monarchism is relatively short, as it emerged in the late 20ᵗʰ century as a response to the perceived failures of both liberal democracy and socialism. However, the roots of this ideology can be traced back to classical liberal and libertarian thinkers such as John Locke, Friedrich Hayek, and Murray Rothbard, who emphasized the importance of individual liberty and limited government.
The concept was first handled by Hans-Hermann Hoppe in his book "Democracy: The God That Failed" in 2001. Hoppe argued that a monarchy, in which the monarch has limited powers and the government is strictly limited, is better at protecting individual liberty and limiting government power than a democracy.
Since then, several thinkers have contributed to the development of Libertarian Monarchism as an ideology. One of the most notable is Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein, who wrote a book titled "The State in the Third Millennium" in which he advocated for a specific type of monarchy in which the monarch serves as a neutral arbiter of disputes between different groups in society.
