Republic Versus Monarchy - part two, section six
[Arguments for the Monarchy & the answers to them]

Australia is a "Crowned Republic" anyway

It has been argued that Australia already has the "form" of a Republic, since we are basically an independent country. This ignores the concepts of true national sovereignty and independence, and of development of the national culture and psyche.

Anyway, if we are a "Crowned Republic", why don't we just take that extra step and become a true Republic?

The idea that Australians are incapable of running their own system of Government is the ultimate form of "cultural cringe", as is the idea that we are unable to provide our own Head of State. Australia has many capable and upstanding people who have the ability and integrity to be able to take on such a position successfully.
