Can anyone who lives under a different form of government truly understand that of another country?

I have read blogs and comments from people in many different countries both on TED and in other websites. I am not sure that I can understand where they are coming from since I was not raised in their country. As an example I do not comprehend the need for the Queen of England and all the royalty but to take it away from those people would surely be a drastic event I guess. Just like others feel about the Republic of the US in other countries maybe if they grew up here they would feel differently
