In the wake of Queen Elizabeth II's passing, we spoke to policy analyst and writer Chuka Ejeckam about the bloody imperialist legacy that the monarchy represents. We also discuss some of the bizarre reactions to the queen's death in the UK and Canada, the case for why the monarchy should be replaced with a democratic alternative, and some of the obstacles that stand in the way of advancing such a project.
