Authoritarians (Absolutists) Suffer from the same problem as do Marxists: “Well it didn’t work here and here, but that’s because I would do it the RIGHT way. When the entire problem is, that an absolutist can in fact know what is wrong, but cannot know what is right or best broadly enough to govern. Knowledge is not commutable between disciplines. Ergo, absolutism fails for the same reason communism and socialism fail: Hayekian Knowledge at Scale.
So A perfect government consists of SPECIALIZING in one’s domain of interest: Self-Interest. The self interest of the monarchy is his CAPITAL: Aesthetics (The Arts and Aesthetic Commons); Institutions (means of producing prosperity), Demographics (quality of those he rules), and Military (Power to deny usurpation). But the market that preserves each of those systems of capital formation (aesthetic, economic, human, and defensive) is created by the LAW (judges and courts) whose sole purpose is to prevent usurpation of the capital production of each of classes (Artistic, Economic, Familial, and Martial).
This is not a bourgeois political bias to the production of commons suitable to the population, it is merely SCIENCE of dividing the scope of what is decidable among those that can do so. Ergo, Monarchy is the judge of last resort in all matters, and it is in his monumental interest to control the arts, and therefore the people VIA the arts.
To raise new funds the monarchy can direct its income from TERRITORIAL RENTS the same way the NOBILITY can raise new funds by investing in COMMERCIAL PROFITS. But neither may impose upon the other – although the judiciary and military may choose otherwise in time of war (dictatorship).
