    opposing monarchies

    I'm strongly opposing all kinds of monarchies because every citizen should have the same rights by birth.

    Is "by birth" correct or should it better be "from birth on" or maybe "with birth" or "through birth"?

    In all honesty, I don't really like any of them. I'd stop after "same rights". Having said that, with regard to human rights, all citizens already have the same rights. Some monarchs might have certain exemptions (perhaps from prosecution, for example) though I'm not entirely sure.

    Rights apply to everyone, regardless of class.

    Re: opposing monarchies

    I think most monarchs have special rights; e.g. they're already millionaires by birth, paid for by the tax payer.

    That's not a right, it's a privilege.
