Why people suddenly decided that monarchy is no way to rule over a country when it worked for thousands years and more.
Because people don't just pick a form of government on if they work or not but how well it works and treats its own population?

How is it possible to believe in the divinity of Christ but not in Mary?
What do you mean by "believing?" I don't think there's a single (mainstream) Christian who doesn't believe Mary existed or that she was the virgin mother of Jesus.
The issue that people take contention with is whether that qualifies her to be prayed to for intercession or not. And that's not really a Mary-exclusive thing, that's more to do with veneration of the Saints in general.
Today 39 years ago the world's greatest World Power was defeated by a bunch of jungle dwelling pajama wearers.
