Court of /monarchy/

Welcome to /monarchy/. I'm editing this top post in order to condense things. This is now the only sticky and a general meta thread. There has been no change in BO, I'm just trying to clean things up a bit more. I may delete out posts in this thread just because I would like keeping the >>1 post for tradition's sake.

Rules: https://8ch.net/monarchy/charter.html

About/Links: https://8ch.net/monarchy/about.html

More specifically, if there is a new BO or volunteer of /monarchy/, it's announced here. If there is a change to the rules, it is promulgated here. This is also a thread I'll use to be a little less aloof and talk about minor and meta stuff: general feedback, complaining about troll threads, accepting submissions for flags, banners, moderation, and rules, etc.. A court, if you will.

I used to rule the world

Seas would rise when I gave the word

Now in the morning I sleep alone

Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice

Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes

Listened as the crowd would sing

Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!

One minute I held the key

Next the walls were closed on me

And I discovered that my castles stand

Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing

Roman Cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword and shield

My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain

Once you'd gone there was never

Never an honest word

That was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind

Blew down the doors to let me in

Shattered windows and the sound of drums

People couldn't believe what I'd become

Revolutionaries wait

For my head on a silver plate

Just a puppet on a lonely string

Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing

Roman Cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword and shield

My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain

I know Saint Peter won't call my name

Never an honest word

But that was when I ruled the world

Hear Jerusalem bells are ringing

Roman Cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword and shield

My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain

I know Saint Peter won't call my name

Never an honest word

But that was when I ruled the world

NO MORE THINKING LIKE REPUBLICANS

Remember that the political animals are all breeds of ideological charlatan. If they subscribe to an ideology, they are a political animal; a political animal is somebody who chooses to be other than man; he chooses to become an partisan or idealist. They see everything through the lenses of their -ism and think highly of plain things. Political animals destroy each other, lavishing to take any mantle of authority. They are dogs in the mud, trampling over each other.

Don't become a political animal. Think of authority, not anarchism. Think of people for who they actually are, not what they "should" be or what party. Be loyal to someone and not an ideal. Don't aspire for power and control, but become somebody of action and authority. Find strength, not slander of opponents. Think of honor, not false chants of liberty; because liberty is honorable and before people are truly free they must become responsible first. Before anybody has any liberty, they must find duty, or else they seek to have liberty without any responsibility – that is a demagogue's tyranny.

Monarchy and the slave race

Monarchy is the ultimate final victory for a batch of genes, representing a family's domination of an entire national region after centuries of struggle. By celebrating a monarch you celebrate the fact that their genes beat your genes. It's the ultimate cuckoldry.

First these superior genes dominated the local village and the family who had them got to become landlords. They extracted tithes from the peasants who did all the work, turning them into slaves. Then they dominated neighbouring landlords. Finally they dominated all the other lords and became the ruling family.

Climbing to the top, the genes showed they were better than everyone. If your landlord is weaker than a bigger lord who submits to the monarch, you are proven to be weaker than the king. It's a badge of shame to be ruled over by a monarch, not something to celebrate.

I admire monarchs, but only a thoughtless peasant could ever submit to one. You are showing yourself to be part of the slave race. Happily in your place. Just the traits that allowed you to be dominated in the first place.

Seriously, how could you be happy in kneeling before a (genetic) master? Are you a cuckold?

Monarchy is the celebration of your genetic cuckoldry.

Monarchy vs other non-democracy states

Why is monarchy better than other non-democratic alternatives- for example, rule by the church or rule by secular bureaucrats?

If we share the tragic view of human nature, the tendency among monarchs and aristocrats will be to descend into profligacy over time, and that is what happened.

Of course institutions can also become corrupted but at least there, there is the chance of reform. Monarchs and aristocrats cannot be removed except by death.

Monarchy in the Animal Kingdom

Bees are the monarchist insect, but ants are communist pests.

<as Joseph d'M*istre states:

>“If sovereignty is not anterior to the people, at least these two ideas are collateral, since a sovereign is necessary to make a people. It is as impossible to imagine a human society, a people, without a sovereign as a hive and bees without a queen: for, by virtue of the eternal laws of nature, a swarm of bees exists in this way or it does not exist at all. Society and sovereignty are thus born together; it is impossible to separate these two ideas. Imagine an isolated man: there is no question of laws or government, since he is not a whole man and society does not yet exist. Put this man in contact with his fellowmen: from this moment you suppose a sovereign. The first man was king over his children; each isolated family was governed in the same way. But once these families joined, a sovereign was needed, and this sovereign made a people of them by giving them laws, since society exists only through the sovereign.

>Everyone knows the famous line,

>“The first king was a fortunate soldier.

>This is perhaps one of the falsest claims that has ever been made. Quite the opposite could be said, that

>The first soldier was paid by a king.

>There was a people, some sort of civilization, and a sovereign as soon as men came into contact. The word people is a relative term that has no meaning divorced from the idea of sovereignty: for the idea of a people involves that of an aggregation around a common center, and without sovereignty there can be no political unity or cohesion….”

Joseph de Maistre

Someone needs to honor this man for being the reactionary arch-nemesis of Rousseau. Academics call him the proto-fascist Isaiah Berlin. Others call him a shadow of the Dark Ages. Maistre and Counter-Enlightenment figures deserve a place somewhere in our hearts for stepping in the light of Progress and stomping it out.

I recommend reading Maistre's Against Rousseau. The place of origin for this PDF fell apart. I am keeping it here because it is an important piece and deserves a read. I am also recommending http://maistre.uni.cx/sovereignty.html this read.

>Against Rousseau

Deals with the leftist 'noble savage' and the Left's consistent belief that human nature is benevolent and happy in the state of nature. Deals with institutional belief and property. It is a remarkable relevant read for monarchists/reactionaries alike.

Reminder

Remember that women aren't fit to rule since by their very natures they are not truly members of any tribe. They are heavily selected by nature to smoothly transition from one tribe to another by marriage or warfare. White knighting them by allowing them to lead is foolish since women have no nation. They do not care where higher status men come from and they'll absorb the language and customs of wherever they happen to end up.

When to change dynasties?

If your here you've probably already figured out why we need a monarch. Writings like Seraphim Rose have done an excellent job explaining why the French Revolution was a mistake.

Have we considered what happens when a monarch needs to be replaced? For instance Queen Victoria did a bangup job, but Queen Elizabeth was a shitshow who has done nothing but import fresh peasants to replace the angry natives as the empire curmbles.

Confucius (and Mencius) had a concept for this that is entirely compatible with Christianity. In a Christian monarchy, Christ is eternal King and monarchs merely act as defacto regent until he returns. Sometimes this regent needs replaced, how do you tell when? Can you kill a monarch without ruining the whole monarchy and devolving into anarchy? We used to do it all the time in Europe.

What would you do to guard against incompetent monarchs?

Ballet Royal de la Nuit

This clown world has gone too far, /monarchy/. Hear me out.

>The Ballet Royal de la Nuit (Royal Ballet of the Night), Ballet Royal de la Nuict in its original spelling and often referred to simply as the Ballet de la Nuit, is a ballet de cour with a libretto by Isaac de Benserade and music by Jean de Cambefort, Jean-Baptiste Boësset, Michel Lambert and possibly others, which premiered on February 23, 1653, at the Salle du Petit-Bourbon in Paris. It took 13 hours to perform and debuted fifteen year old Louis XIV as Apollo, the Sun King (Le Roi Soleil).

>It was in part due to the Ballet Royal de la Nuit that Louis XIV came to be known as the Roi Soleil (The Sun King). With the collective civil wars known as the Fronde still fresh in the collective memory, the cardinal Mazarin commissioned a ballet with the aim of displaying the young king's true power, then only 15 years old. For this, he would therefore take on the role of Apollo.

>The work was never again performed after its first performance in 1653. Director of the Ensemble Correspondances, Sébastien Daucé therefore decided to recreate the ballet after being seduced upon hearing its first air. There remained, however, only the first violin score, the other orchestral voices having been completely lost. The idea was therefore to "respect" the score, to "complete" it and not "transform" it. The current stage production is somewhat different from the original version, highlighting the text's fairytale and enchanting aspects.

Pagan Monarchy

Do you think a pagan monarchy could possibly arise in Europe's future (or any other part of the world)?

Me personally, I think that if people were to go back to their roots in terms of political ideology, they should also go back to the spiritual/religious traditions of their ancestors. Since christianity is a semitic religion with exclusively semitic prophets it has no connection to Europe whatsoever. It would not make sense for an non-Hebrew king to claim that he rules by divine right if the god he worships is one created by Hebrews.

The only modern monarchy I know of that could be considered a pagan monarchy is that of Japan whose ruling family claims to be descended from the Shintoist sun goddess Amaterasu (Shintoism being the native religion of Japan). Before the end of WWII the emperor was considered to be a god-like being himself and was actually worshipped by some.

A monarch that is actually an important aspect of his people's religion would be hard to be overthrown and indeed, the Japanese royal family has ruled for thousands of years.

Has /monarchy/ noticed that certain religions have a better track record of continuing the institution of monarchy than others?

Take Islam, for example. Today, Muslim countries are more like to be monarchies than non-Muslim ones, and most of the remaining absolute monarchies are Muslim. In fact, virtually all of the Ummah was run by monarchs, but many of them were overthrown by Western-influenced revolutionaries in the last century.

That's why I'm thinking of converting to Islam, to help strengthen the moral fiber of my life and to further the cause of monarchism. Anyone else thinking the same?

Anti-Imperialism

The ultimate affront to all ideologies is being an imperialist.

They all hate the legacy of empires.

This is not the imperialism of colonial empire, but the long-spanning imperial domain of ancient civilizations and the imperial domain of holy ranks and great emperors. Emperors were once a strong symbol.

Monarchies are not only afraid of going extinct. Empires are. True empires. I am not referencing "pseudo-empire" and those who point to Zionist hegemony or the current state of the Commonwealth. What the nationalists refer to "globalism" is not the imperialism I love. The glory of imperialism could be as national and local as it is powerful. Emperor is the rank above king. It is the ultimate status.

Before anyone whines about colonialism, I'm going to point out that an anti-imperialist is basically an anti-monarchist. Look no further the 20th century and the most prestigious monarchies were empires. The British Empire. The Austro-Hungarian Empire. The German Empire. The Russian Empire. The Brazilian Empire & 2nd Mexican Empire. The whole basket of great imperial regimes. The only Emperor left in this world is in Japan.

>Submission to Authorities

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.

And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken.

The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.

The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

/monarchy/ review from a consequentialist libertarian

Alright, i've been recommended the board and have lurked for a while and although i probably won't stay i thought i might share my thoughts on the subject. Do whatever you want with them.

Monarchy's success is not universal but is often enough not due to some chivalry, religion or other imaginary pretentious sophistry to cover up and justify the monopoly on force but simply from the fact that monarchs follow the order that requires less reinforcement from them, leading to less politicaly active reign, therefore allowing greater economic freedom from politically motivated intervention. When it's not the case and either the ruler or some other influential institutions intervene problems quickly follow, though as long as the inheritance of authority is in place the system still has the ability to recover with the next, less leftist ruler.

The monarchies' structure is good because it relies on a more apolitical model(i.e. the order is in place regardless, it's stable and doesn't create political climate as it exists almost without actual involvement of most people, even monarch is required to just live an offspring, basically), something that demoracies or other popular rule systems lack, succumbing to populism. If the situation changed like it might have been during modern times in the field of modern politics then monarchies would likely lose their traits and fall apart, as it's not the absolte potential power that held them together but lack of questioning and testing it. With modern abilities and communications it would also be easier to ruin the country in one generation,rendering another feature of monarchy nearly useless. Still i do like minarchist monarchies for what they are, as spontaneous and unintentional protectors of freedom and predecessors of other systems that attempted to solidify what is most important to progress, knowledge, prosperity and self-realization, possibly being better at that then many earlier attempts. Adding democracy because of the spread of egalitarian populism was a mistake, it should have been constitutional civic monarchy instead

Anyway, here it is, probably gay or something but forgive me as i'm probably not doing it again.

Achieving monarchy in Burgerland

Greetings courtiers and commoners of /monarchy/ from Burgerland. Hail to the King for he is good.

I come to you all today because i've been brainstorming an idea to get monarchy in the United States, or at least a more pragmatic way than trying to push a Bill through the greedy, selfish, slothful, "do nothing" Congress.

Eventually convincing enough people to want a referendum (or special election) to disband the County Board (or however your county is organized) and install the Count as the Monarch of that county. Making that position inheritable.

All it would take is one county in the US to do this to inspire more Counts to rise up from the ashes of our (((Democratic - Republic))), or the success of that Count should attract other counties to vote him in as their count (until he owns enough land to be considered a Duke)

A great way to legitimize the Count's claim would be to have a Bishop (Catholic or Orthodox) bless him as the appointed monarch of the county. This formality should be enough to put the Bishop's congregation in the Count's pocket.

In the long run, I envision America becoming a new HRE (because Americans are, unfortunately, culturally Republican). Where the landed Nobles vote on legislation and who gets to become the new Kaiser.

The reasons why I think it can work

1. More and more people are becoming disillusioned with our current Democratic process.

2. The youth are becoming more Conservative and religious everyday.

3. The people loved Emperor Norton.

4. Crypto currency technology can be used to circumvent the need and dependency on the (((Federal Reserve Notes))) and solidify the Count's economy.

Why it wont work

1. Unfair media coverage

2. Assassinations

3. Not producing a male heir

4. Possibly no recognition from foreign Monarchs

The only other practical way the US could become a Monarchy (that I can think of) would be to go the route of Rome.

The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly; /monarchy/ on Guns & Gun Control

Gun ownership in the past monarchies was not uncommon and much more relaxed than monarchies are today. It is about time /monarchy/ discuss the gun control and gun laws in various monarchs from the past and present, and what your stance is on guns.

>the Good

Gun ownership in Imp. Russia was easier like the Wild West. Accordingly, no problems with gun ownership and very relaxed. Meanwhile, most of Europe back then was relaxed on gun control, as well as under the Qing for a while. This is a stark contrast to the steep rise in regulations and gun control you today. Nowadays you gotta have a loicense. However, Serbia has a high approval rate for a monarchical restoration and they are also a very gun-loving culture.

When the King Enjoys His Own Again

Absolute Monarchy is not tyranny

>“I must tell you that the liberty and freedom [of the people] consists in having of Government, those laws by which their life and their goods may be most their own. It is not for having share in Government, Sir, that is nothing pertaining to them. A subject and a sovereign are clean different things. If I would have given way to an arbitrary way, for to have all laws changed according to the Power of the Sword, I needed not to have come here, and therefore I tell you…that I am the martyr of the people”

<The true monarch, like many who have gone to their martyrdom for this principle, fight for their absolute power (or divine right if you like) not out of personal ambition but because in so doing they are fighting for the absolute right of every one of their people to all that is justly their own.

<It could, perhaps, more simply stated this way: in such a system everyone has absolute power over all that is legitimately their own. Just as the monarch cannot simply take life, limb or property from his nobles or people at his whim, because they have absolute right to it, neither can the people, at their whim take the Crown or royal authority from the monarch.

Monarchy starts with a good premise for liberty and laws and fairness. It is unequal; the monarch inherits his authority and status as a king and it represents the highest reproduction of these values. A crown has no words, no articles, and no doctrine; but the crown represents something stronger. In Bossuet's properties of royalty, monarchs are subject to reason and will have consequences for their actions. A monarch could shoot himself and have consequences for it. There is no business making up hypothetical horror stories of a monarch becoming a tyrant at whim. This is a republican myth that asserts all monarchies are tyrannical and all republics are libertarian.The political reality wouldn't allow for it for monarchies, and the structure and legitimacy of monarchy is necessary. The absolute power of kings is necessary for their organic capacities.

TL;DR: Monarchy and authority aren't necessarily tyrannical.

In Defense of Hereditary Monarchy

There are many electoral monarchists showing their vices and making communists blush with their talk of guillotines and beheading monarchs. This is a shameful state for a monarchist to be in, electoral or hereditary, but that won't be the topic of this thread. Rather than discuss people with a vendetta against monarchy (whether it is absolute or plain hereditary; mostly narrows to hereditary), I'll have to be an apologist for hereditary monarchy. This is because these people basically come down to a hatred of primogeniture succession. For the reason of centralizing land and favoring the eldest son unequally over the other sons.

>centralization

Monarchists who favor hereditary principle and yet still like primogeniture have to wrestle with two extremes. There is the aristocrat-lover, ultra-individualist who hates nations and nationalism in favor of micro-states and divided up counties/prince-electors, and then there is the nationalist who wants the big national state with democratic anti-primogeniture sentiments. This comes down to the age-old struggle between monarchy, aristocracy, and democracy. The monarchies of the WW1 period in Central Europe reached a middle ground between nationalism and royalty. There were two German states, but an encompassing pride for nation regardless. This might upset nationalists who favor complete unification while seeing multi-ethnic peoples together in hereditary empires. Hereditary empires unified people thanks to primogeniture (without electoral succession) thanks to gavelkind succession becoming less practical. Centralization organically grew as land became more indivisible because the eldest son inherited land and the land remained tied and incorporated more and more people on said land rather than constantly unifying and splitting it up again.

The electoral monarchies were strongly hereditary monarchies and those that weren't would later become hereditary with the rise of primogeniture. I don't think the electoral process of aristocrats would avoid centralization, despite primogeniture bringing people under a fold. Usually centralization and decentralization are a rising tide and happen regardless, especially when empires grow larger and larger; but this doesn't mean they have to be overbearing on liberty. An anon pointed out that the Russian Empire, despite centralizing with the Romanov dynasty, still was fairly better off in the later centuries despite abolishing serfdom.

>how about hereditary roots?

While electoral monarchists can boast about being older in a sense with Germanic states favoring electoral bodies, there are a few exceptions (especially outside of Europe). Some electoral processes among those were incredibly superficial and strongly hereditary like the Byzantine Empire (despite laws) and other cases. There are also those monarchies that didn't establish themselves by right of vote, but by conquest in certain niche cases with the monarch winning a battle and declaring himself king. As for other monarchies, this could involve the Kingdom of Wessex with its tales of kings and its strongly hereditary monarchy, the things surrounding the strongly hereditary realm of Norway, and so on with the Rugii Kingdom and other exceptions to the rule.

>the evolution of monarchies

In France, the Merovingian dynasty started electoral but later became strongly dynastic and hereditary. Those kings played roles such as being judges and ruling idly. Until the electoral office of the Mayor of Paris and the kingship merged together with Pepin the Short's takeover and the establishment of the Holy Roman Empire. After that, the House of Capet started the longest succession of primogeniture in France and the electoral process vanished in 1,223 AD.

Between 1,223 AD and 1,670 AD, most monarchies in Europe became hereditary. In most of England, the Norman Conquest (offically in early1200s) . In Scotland, primogeniture started to exert itself in 1,371, Portugal, and Sweden later in 1537. Outside of Europe, there were plenty of civilizations with strong dynasties like Zhou Dynasty in China and Egypt's dynastic rulers. Imperial Japan was also the longest hereditary dynasty to boast.

>how did it become necessary and how did kingdoms/nations develop?

Primogeniture became necessary with growing military conquests and the need for indivisible lands. The development of many nations owe gratitude to this process and these monarchies. I think nationalists should recognize this. While aristocrat electoral monarchists should also recognize that the electoral process even in decentralized states can evolve to become federal (like the United States in its development).

Misconceptions on Absolutism

For a reason unknown to me, the concept of a king alone aggros people on the board. Or, at least, it had brought about aggro in the past. What is absolute? A monarchy where the king is solely king and this authority is inviolable and typically unfettered and the top of temporal hierarchy. That is the easiest way I would clarify it. The rule of the monarch, at the top of the hierarchy, with the other members of the hierarchy. As Maistre defined it, 'a centralized aristocracy'. It isn't limited to Western civilization. Absolute monarchy comes in different forms. It has manifested itself throughout the ages. The sole role of monarchs as sovereigns is nothing new.

>absolutism is all about 'arbitrary' power, 'totalitarianism', 'big gubmit', 'the modern state', 'social contract theory'.

This is a big misconception. People tend to throw around a word salad without really defining their terms. Throwing words like 'authoritarian' and 'totalitarian' as if they were one and the same annoys me to death. Is monarchy an 'authoritarian' structure? Indefinitely, I think, because the institution relies on authority of great spiritual foundation, culture, justice, and the family. To despise all authority is to deprive all people of rights, actions as fathers, and their own self-autonomy. Authority is spread across the board, not limited to only the government, but the entire state of sovereignty. Parents have authority. People have authority over their property. Teachers have authority over students. People have authority in the things they produce and create. Authority is in initiative and intuitiveness. Authority is nothing limited to the state, but it does consist with hierarchy and control. Sovereignty extends to the entire state of living in a particular realm, not limited or separated to the government. It is propriety and authority across the board, vertical within a hierarchy and the dominion of monarchy, church, and people. It is right and wrong because the character of monarchies is so unrestricted to ideologies, even absolutism itself, that it really depends on the character of the monarch.

>absolutism is modernism/Enlightenment

This is right and wrong. It depends on how you view what is 'modern' and what is 'absolutism'. It doesn't begin in the 'Age of Absolutism'. It doesn't begin with social contract theory and Thomas Hobbes. That is another way of viewing absolutism and the modern state. Yes, Thomas Hobbes innovated social contract theory (which was a thing before Hobbes and something Hobbes reversed on Whigs who used it; it didn't come from nowhere). Most critiques of absolutism are pertinent of Hobbesianism/social contract theory and the concept of the modern state through social contract theory. This is just another fashion, so-to-speak, of the absolute. King Louis XIV is said to be the quintessential absolute monarch, but is a far cry from being the 'first absolute monarch'. And not to forget that in Christian hierarchy and understanding of monarchy, it goes back way before King Louis XIV and Bossuet (who didn't even espouse social contract theory). The Divine Right of Kings goes back to the Biblical Times, King James I, and then Bossuet. But even before King James I, it was formalized and understood in coronation ceremonies and the rudiments of Christendom with Emperors and the Church Fathers. Outside of Western civilization, the oldest of monarchies still had strident similarities to the absolute and the spiritual bedrock of wielding divine authority.

>absolute monarchy is tyranny

This is another matter of debate and how you view monarchies. Most people suggest that monarchy in general is just tyranny. I could say that democracy is anarchy, aristocracy is oligarchy, and monarchy is tyranny. It is counter-productive. If a king cannot have what is absolutely his own, where do ordinary people stand in having their own? And propriety no longer inviolable. It isn't 'arbitrary' or 'totalitarian'. There is always the potential for what is evil no matter what you draft. Because what is arbitrary is so far from absolute, it is impossible for it to enslave everyone arbitrarily, especially without repercussions not to mitigate the sacred characteristic of monarchy, but it is subject to reason and regicide should be avoided

>absolute monarchy is throne and altar only

Maybe ideal for some. Maybe not for those who want more government. Like how presidents have cabinets, monarchs have their choice of advisors, aristocrats, churchmen, prime ministers, chancellors, and even representatives. Absolute monarchy is not 'all doing', but simply 'all powerful' as an authority built on hierarchy and temporal power and spirituality. It is more of a status as being a 'king'.

>absolute monarchy cannot be constitutional

This is untrue. Absolute monarchies can have constitutions. Meji Era Japan is a good example.

Rights and Duties of a Monarch

The liberal view is that there is no objective good; a person can base his behaviour on nothing but his own desires. The liberal approves of my decision to become a Buddhist as much as he would my decision to become a rock star, a drug addict, or a woman. Therefore the liberal's political principle is that the government should not meddle in our individual choices. He tolerates immigration; cultural diversity does not bother him.

The conservative view is that there is an objective good; we have responsibilities which restrict the range of our moral behaviour. Therefore the conservative disapproves of my becoming a drug addict, as this is irresponsible; or promoting rock music which promotes more irresponsibility. He questions transgenderism because the subjective identification with a particular gender is less important to him than the objective reality. He questions immigration because the social regulation which is important to his system is threatened by cultural diversity. A huge, alien city does not regulate behaviour so well as a closed, conformist village.

Monarchy and nobility reinforce the view of objective good; their claim is to be the 'betters' of any society, entitled to a higher place by their superior breeding and behaviour. They have to listen to the best music, have the strongest marriages, and the prettiest daughters. A monarch or noble must really behave better than the rest of the population or the whole system fails.

Sometimes this World NEEDS Tyranny

This world has grown SOFT and WEAK. With its suited politicians and political animalism, the republican animals move to their fodder to chew up the mash called 'politics'. They gobble it up. They are comfortable like lemmings, consuming the mash without knowing its poison. These political carnivores eat each other up; they have no discipline. What's the matter with the world and immigration being rampant and the rise of ideologies? The matter is democracy feeds off how bankrupt civilization has become. They have even been content to be called 'one of the animals' and 'on par with animals' without understanding the implications of these terms.

Suit-wearing parliamentarians. Their worship of 'economics' while having an economic union that regulates increasingly, their political fanaticism with being so-called 'socialists', 'social democrats', 'conservatives', 'green partisans', 'communists'; aka the will of NOTHING aka the will of ideology. They choose to be something else rather than human. How is it our fault they do this to themselves? They have destroyed communities and destroyed the identity of nation. They have profaned the sacred and virtuous office of kingship, that of monarchy, with their pandering as the political class.

<"You're wild, absolutely CRAZY; how could you say that, OP?"

It might seem wild, but nature is a cruel beast.

>REGICIDE & TYRANNY

This is the go-to complaint for the political class. How about it? We have all learned the names of tyranny and justification for regicide. We have the name of tyranny so in-grained in our mind, that monarchy becomes the evil government and the virtues of aristocracy and democracy triumph in comparison. As monarchists, we all recognize that monarchy is the best of governments, and tyranny has the potential worst, as we tend to balance the good with the bad. However, these political animals are utopians. They want the best all the time. I would argue we have forgotten the 'tyranny' of republicanism in this day and age. We only memorized the name of 'tyranny', but we forgot the so-called 'tyranny' of republicans.

>OLIGARCHY & PLUTOCRACY

Oligarchy is the extended 'naughty word' for aristocracy. We might be surprised to know that oligarchs and aristocrats can become 'like tyrants'. This is the most prominent abuse in the world today. With social contract theory and economic ideals above spiritual reality, there is the abuse of immigrants as justified members of "The People" and people question the ethnicity of monarchs; in the world today, there is a Muslim mayor of London. How could this be excusable? Social contract theory, and the idea of 'choosing leaders', has evolved into 'leaders choosing their people'. We need the check and balance of a tyrant to whip these parliamentarians into shape. They talk about regicide lightly, but the whip will inflict a LASH. It doesn't merely kill as much as it punishes evil-doers. We need a bit of tyranny to whip the world back into shape with the parliamentarians postponing Brexit with their insufferable arrogance. These are aristocrats who LOVE hierarchy until it comes to them being subordinate to a higher authority aka a king, and their solution to this is political mechanism over monarchy with OLIGARCHY.

>ANARCHY & COMMUNISM

These unruly animals want a despotism of turning everyone into manual labors. GIVE THEM THE COSSACK'S WHIP!

>WE HAVE FANCIED OLIGARCHY AND ANARCHY

Anarchy and oligarchy have proven worse for being subversive nuisances on society. Everyone knows what tyranny looks like, but we have forgotten the appearance of oligarchy and anarchy. We have forgotten what their abuses look like. The 'aristocrats' and the political class love hierarchy and love their economic tyranny and regulations to benefit them over the lower classes and other businesses, forgoing the name of competition. While the anarchist and communist wants to turn the world into a collectivized worker ant hivemind of the Proletariat. We believe that 'voting will resolve this', but that is a LIE.

Consider this: Voting and what constitutes these 'representative governments' constitute 'THE PEOPLE'. However, not all of the PEOPLE are equal. How much of the vote constitutes the Rich? How much of the vote constitutes the Poor? In aristocracy, it is the Rich over the Poor. In democracy, it is the Poor over the Rich. In oligarchy, it is the Rich without hierarchy above them, without responsibilities, and without good principles and abuse. In anarchy, it is the rule of the poor without responsibilities, without hierarchy, and without good principles.

Political Realism & Intrigue

There's a deep interest in political realism and violence, powerplay, and the dynamics of holding power with the polity. There's the Machiavellian & Hobbesian outlook on power. Nobody is content with the ideal and moral answer of "Kings being there because it is his right" and want to know the opposite answer to how kings obtain power through politics alone.

>but how is that done?

Through tactics like punishment and reward. You either use fear to intimidate people. The most obvious present example of fear being a way of control is through war-time propaganda. War propaganda has always been the most effective way to get people to cough up taxes and tributes really fast. When their livelihood is at stake and their property is threatened to be destroyed, they are eager to cough up dimes and levies. This happens today constantly to motivate people.

>other methods?

Punishments and cruelty. Torture.

>the rewards

Lower taxes or exemptions for political support. Gifts from the big guy. Bread and circuses displays. War-time favorites being promoted along with nepotism. Partisanship status enabling bonus rights. Land and wealth through conquest.

Democratic Optimism

Is it me or is the dogmatic belief in the 'People' to resolve is taken for granted? It is a ubiquitous cancer. The People, the Majority, and the multitudes and mobs are not your friend to begin with. What people to begin with? Who? This term is applied so often, when taken outside of the pessimistic view, it is applied universally regardless of distinction. The People reign and nobody can imagine or speak well enough to criticize this. You might as well blame the Gods, but never the People, for what problems we have.

Democracy and anything democratic, the worship and exultation of democracy as ideal government, confirmed in the "representative" republic, loads up the narrative that somewhere "The People" are going to save you. Does anyone ever blame "The People" when things go wrong? Does anyone look at "The People" for presenting terrible leaders? In this world, the People can do no wrong.

Everyone knows how cliques are terrible and anti-social. They never liked the social atmosphere that aristocracy sometimes breeds. This is understandable seeing as how a clique or a group of people sometimes creates a nasty atmosphere (contrasted with the idea of an individual monarch; but not to scare the people who have fetishized aristocracy). – Nobody is skeptical about the social atmosphere a mob creates. Destruction and anarchy suit the appetite of people generally these days as the common good.

Monarchists & Taxation

A troubling discussion for monarchists is dealing with the generalization that monarchies are the worst governments for dealing with taxes. This is mixed with half-truths and also inconsistencies on the side of opponents. As a member of the board, I am pretty relieved to find that monarchies are seen as fairer on taxation. With apologists like Hans-Herman Hoppe and others, monarchy and the reputation of being ruthless tax-mongrels lies down.

An ultimate symbol of authority, undeniably, is who is getting the levies and raising the armies, who is doing the taxing, and who is being taxed; this is a terrible mistake and grievance in the English Civil War. Ultimately, despite taxation, I would argue ultimately a power struggle between Parliament's right to tax and the Crown's right to taxation. The advent of other revolutionary battles and difficulties show that Parliament would later become the tax collectors and gather the reputation for it. Although the English were some of the less taxed in Europe around the time of King Charles I. It was a real issue of what members of society they levied in war-time dues to protect the country.

Monarchies back then used levies periodically and taxed counties, found other measures, and historically saw them as signs of loyalty and tribute.

Today it's terribly shocking with the attitude towards taxation. Despite what is said about monarchies, which used levies and didn't directly do it all during peace-time, the world today is a far-cry from what was considered outright tyranny today compared to tomorrow. People think that because the 'People' are in charge, democracy would never resolve to tax itself to death. Yet we still find the peril of it and even worse than the monarchies of old, even to the point where the idea ends.

My opinion is that monarchy is a mixed bag on terms of taxation. There have been low-tax monarchies and high-tax monarchies. The moral monarchies with strong foundations of moral code fair better because it was immoral to burden people. Time and time again, the spiritual foundation is the true discipline of monarchs.

I'm looking for the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly; and a historical discussion on taxes and apologists for why monarchy doesn't tax as hard as republics despite the claim that these representative bodies wouldn't dare harshly tax. Not an ideological or economic talk as much (although partially).

National Socialism with a Monarch?

I've been pondering on this idea for a while now. While I am an avid monarchist, and have zero respect for democracy, I am concerned that the purely libertarian 'possession'-based idea of monarchy is a bit too easy to subvert by (((them))). After all, royal marriages of Kings, Dukes etc. in the olden days were ones of political power, with little regard for the nationality of the spouse or her family's lineage, and sometimes with no regard for the nationality of the King (e.g. Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth comes to mind straight away). This means that powerful investors, bankers and speculators who, despite coming form an aristocratic family with powerful connections, would in no way benefit the volk of the nation as they would ultimately be driven by their own greed and end goals of subversion. Society would be very much at risk these days in particular, since most rich people with aristocratic backgrounds have come in contact with the globalist Jewry at some point, and even those who have never been heard of (for example, Emanuel Macron, supposedly a nobody entering politics yet possessing an aristocratic etiquette and approach, but in reality a businessman with a past of deals and acquaintances with the Rothschilds) have some dirty history behind them.

National Socialism seemed to have fixed this, in a sense. It held firm in authority, with a centralised chain of command where the Furher could be likened to a King or Emperor, and his advisors, the King's court. The difference is that instead of going HAM on the idea of private property, it instead cultivated the idea of a strong identity, where every man could claim Germany as his own, the nation being shared in the volk. Every man, regardless of his position in society, could celebrate his nation's culture, past, tradition, and yet still, the real power was held in a tightly-regulated chain of command. It gave people a sense of unity, and very much held up that idea through the Hitler-jugend, the League of German Girls and many social programmes that helped people build a sense of national and racial unity.

In a certain sense, you could see the Reich as an extremely centralised Empire. The Fuhrer, whose will to act came as a blessing from God, was the overseer of his Empire, the guardian of his people; a man who stood in the trenches of the western front and looked death in the eye, defying him at every turn. He earned his position of power; he fought for what he believed in, and was ready to die for it. He was worthy of being the shepherd guiding his sheep. Other great soldiers and men received prestigious powers; command of armies or became governors of lands, though they didn't own it as their own, and the Fuhrer could revoke it as he pleased, having ultimate say in the land, serving his people as best he could.

I believe that bringing back feudalism in the 21st century would be opening the doors for the jews, allowing them and (((unrelated))) offshoots, bearing millions in cash entry into royal families, but a national socialist monarchy, with a monarch who owns all, and dukes, counts etc. being no more than viceroyals, appointed and revocable by the monarch would be the perfect mix of the two systems, as it would make sure that no aristocrat with land granted by birthright lives off of his titles, but has to work or face immediate revocation and the wrath of the monarch. It would also mean that nation is more than just a concept of allegiance to lineage, but allegiance to a race, a culture, a faith and past that is written in stone.

Feminists to Take Down World-Famous Work of Art

Clare Gannaway, the gallery’s curator of contemporary art, said the aim of the removal was to provoke debate, not to censor. “It wasn’t about denying the existence of particular artworks.”

The work usually hangs in a room titled In Pursuit of Beauty, which contains late 19th century paintings showing lots of female flesh.

Gannaway said the title was a bad one, as it was male artists pursuing women’s bodies, and paintings that presented the female body as a passive decorative art form or a femme fatale.

“For me personally, there is a sense of embarrassment that we haven’t dealt with it sooner. Our attention has been elsewhere … we’ve collectively forgotten to look at this space and think about it properly. We want to do something about it now because we have forgotten about it for so long.”

Gannaway said the debates around Time’s Up and #MeToo had fed into the decision.

The removal itself is an artistic act and will feature in a solo show by the artist Sonia Boyce which opens in March. People can tweet their opinion using #MAGSoniaBoyce.

Absolutism ended on the 30th of Janurary 1649 when people realized that the divine right of Kings didnt actually mean all that much on account of the Kings Head and Body being on separate sides of the room

for the next few centuries the Monarchies of Europe chugged along slowly being whittled away by Liberal-Democracy and the rise of capitalism breaking the landed families previously almost universal grip on wealth

this coupled with advances in technology simply made Monarchy and Feudalism less efficient which over all led to its abolition throughout the entirety of the developed world (Western Monarchies are Republics in name only)

Respect for Spiritual Customs

I'm calling Christians on /monarchy/, specifically all Christians who adore monarchy for its ceremonial value and heritage: respect the pagans, and be polite in religious discourse.

Europe's pagan heritage deserves respect. We ought to appreciate the pagan origins of the ceremonies and beliefs surrounding it. These deistic beliefs like the scepter and orb, along with the symbols and beliefs. Don't disparage the spiritual culture before and after Christianity. And Christianity does hold weight for the benefits and consequences we see in Western civilization.

Pagans have ground in criticizing the civilization in its current state. I'm not asking Christians to take criticism lightly. Just take the weight of being polite first.

This thread will remain for a mutual discussion on pagan and Christian influences on monarchy as a structure.

Pagan monarchies in Europe had a ritualistic divine right between a king and a feminine goddess. In Ireland, Celtic kings also partook in ceremonies where their kingship had a right in a ceremony with a bond between a feminine power. It isn't too patriarchal or matriarchal. It is a simple unity of the sexes. This rite of passage became a king's right. In Arthurian legend, the Lady of the Lake gives Excalibur to King Arthur, for example.

The origin of the scepter and orb ceremony also originate with pagan influences and Christian ceremony in its own right. There is a Germanic explanation that the scepter resembled a hammer and the orb was a rock, and power coming down from lightning and thunder.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Globus_cruciger

To citizens of the Roman Empire, the plain round globe held by Jupiter represented the world, or the universe, as the dominion held by the emperor. A 2nd-century coin from the reign of Emperor Hadrian shows the Roman goddess Salus with her foot upon a globus, and a 4th-century coin from the reign of Emperor Constantine I shows him with a globus in hand. The orbis terrarum was central to the iconography of the Tetrarchy, representing the Tetrarchs' restoration of security to the Roman world. Constantine I claimed to have had a vision of a cross above the sun, with the words "In this sign, you shall conquer" (Latin: In hoc signo vinces), at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312. His soldiers painted crosses upon their shields, and then defeated their foe, Maxentius.

With the growth of Christianity in the 5th century, the orb (in Latin scriptures orbis terrarum, the 'world of the lands', hence the word "orb") was topped with a cross (hence globus cruciger), symbolising the Christian God's dominion over the world. The emperor held the world in his hand, to show that he ruled it on God's behalf.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronation

The corona radiata, the "radiant crown" known best on the Statue of Liberty, and perhaps worn by the Helios that was the Colossus of Rhodes, was worn by Roman emperors as part of the cult of Sol Invictus, part of the imperial cult as it developed during the 3rd century. The origin of the crown is thus religious, comparable to the significance of a halo, marking the sacral nature of kingship, expressing that either the king is himself divine, or ruling by divine right.

Christianity helped build monarchy we love. It adapted and helped build its own form of absolutism. It begins with the Divine Right of Kings and coronation ceremony with oil. These symbols were adapted and sometimes already consisted with the Christian tradition even back then. I'm calling for mutual respect between all spiritual cultures to not shitsling for a bit and appreciate all origins of monarchical practice.

WW1 Pacifism

Before I begin I need to address an incredulous issue of mine with republicans and WW1. We all know the deal with 'brother wars' and 'pointless wars' and how WW1 is related as the 'most pointless war' in 10 million people 'died in vain' to serve 'autocratic monarchies that just didn't care'. Let me be the first to say that WW1 was the worst thing that could happen. It did result in terrible industrialized machine-gun weapons, chemical weapons, and dirty trench warfare. Millions died in a brutal conflict. The nature of war, however, is nowhere near reasonable to begin with and pacifism is nowhere near reasonable either.

Republican hypocrisy is astonishing. There is a culture of pacificism around WW1 as the misguided and needless war. If there were constitutions, democracies, and representative governments, the People™ wouldn't have allowed this. The monarchs didn't care. This is the result of 'Nationalism' and 'Unscrupulous autocrats who didn't care'. These two terms 'nationalistic' and 'autocrat' undoubtedly point to the German Empire as being solely responsible for the war. WW1 propaganda often paints the Kaiser as the spooky man before Hitler who was the autocrat and the despot and generally blamed 'Prussian militarism' for the Great War.

Entangled alliances and nationalism as painted as institutions responsible for the great need to bring nations and monarchies to the great republican chopping block. Nevermind anything we see today. Nevermind NATO and other international bodies. It is all pointless.

WW2 is the propagandist war. The culture of pacifism found around WW1 was immediately snuffed out around the on-set of WW2. Pacifists were mocked. They were slipped out. The big republican governments took over and were responsible for the fate of Europe. The 'real men' were 'in charge' so to speak and they were going to 'fix Europe'. – What is this bullshit? You're telling me that the atrocities of WW1 were pointless and killed millions. How many people died in WW2? Nobody cares as much as WW1. WW2 is the propagandist war of our time and era. The virile propaganda snuffs out all pacifist ideals. This is the dogma of ideology and republicanism. The 'big boys' were in charge and the NWO committed worse atrocities than the Old Order. The heated propaganda still persists today and nobody is truly apologetic for it. We are still being feed propaganda. There is no room for pacifism in WW2. Pacifists are snuffed out. There is room for pacifists to ridicule WW1 and monarchies for democratic ideals. Just don't you dare look at the big elephant in the room.

>WW1 monarchs were all pro-war

They were for their countries. There were many pro-war people and people who believe that Germany was the big bad guy. This view of incompetent monarchs is from (((Herman Bernstein))) and the US pov. So much for pacifism in WW2 with FDR and the others. That goes out the window.

Both regimes have their share of doing this. I am giving the pro-monarchy response and pointing out this nonsense.

Feudalism is no more, but why must you succumb to capitalism? I find socialism to be a better successor.

Historical examples:

In Mesopotamia the Semitic monarchies - Assyria and Babylonia. You may see the uncanny resemblance of Lenin's Mausoleum to Ziggurats.

Napoelonic Empire, perhaps best example of it. Modern day Bonapartists are just national-social-democrats, but historically it was inherently a social-monarchic movement.
Fascist Italy, worked like diarchy. At the end King overthrown Mussolini
Japanese Empire
Argurably socialist-leading, both countries were also realising monarchist priciples. Japan could create countries like Manchukuo with Qing Emperor as head of state, or Mengukuo, Italy would give Emmanuel titles like Emperor of Ethiopia, or send Prince Tomislav II to Croatia.

Argurably
Libyan Jamahiriya - Gaddafi titled himself "King of Kings" when speaking to Saudi King.

Christian missionaries also followed in the dominion of empires, spreading Christianity and churches along the way. From the Christian perspective, this is a very benevolent force of colonialism. Among these benefactors, the empires were not all necessarily violent in their expansion. A few of the indigenous people and local royalty chose to side with the empires. Nothing comes without price, so the subjects of imperial rule surely had to benefit the colonial rulers. It still benefited both to a degree, despite the subjugation or incorporation of those peoples. The rise and fall of empires brings glories and shame across the globe. Yet nobody would give away an empire, as the empires were a higher status among nations.

Obvious downfalls were the violence and horrors of the domain. No person easily accepted subjugation without a cost. The cost-benefit evaluation always throttles. When faced with enemies, it comes to compromises with a higher power, but it often means being taken advantage of. Still, for what colonial empires were, the name British Empire still evokes a sense of pride and glory.

If not for empires, it should be stated what better alternatives ought to exist. What we see in the world today is touted to be imperialism in disguise and a few mark the United States as an empire. Despite the US being far from the glories of an empire, there is a perceived hegemony across the globe. – Besides that, what models there instead of an empire is interesting enough. Like monarchy, I consider an empire to be most honest in how desirable it is to take the status of an empire.

Neo-Absolutism

I haven't seen a discussion thread about anything regarding The Journal of Neoabsolutism, so I'll get one started.

>What is Neoabsolutism?

I don't know what distinguishes it from regular absolutism other than this being new and absolutism being old, however there is most likely a definition on the two websites that the ideas come from. The two wordpresses where the term "neo-absolutism" comes from are The Journal of Neoabsolutism (https://thejournalofneoabsolutism.wordpress.com/) and the earlier wordpress which preceded it, Reactionaryfuture (https://reactionaryfuture.wordpress.com/).

This thread will be for the discussion of the ideas on these two sites, a good place to start is the "Absolutist and Anarchistic Ontology" (https://thejournalofneoabsolutism.wordpress.com/2017/05/02/absolutist-and-anarchistic-ontology/). This section of the site is a good place to start for any new monarchist and will get them to stop thinking like republicans and more like monarchists.

Republican Mediocrity

Does anyone ever get tired of this world?

>every Western world leader subscribing to republican ideology wears crass suits and ties, a small flag pin to represent their nation, and they carry an overbearing statesman look of robotic individualism.

>certain communists dress counter this appearance with their slick shirts and buttons, strikingly different and partisan, with sometimes an ideology pin and the portraits of their dear leaders (DPRK is a weird exception there with its hereditary leadership). Like the big leader giving memos to the workers.

>progressive strong independent women dress bright, unique, and colorful with their little coats, and sometimes try to match the boring individualism of their male counter-parts

<individualism, why do you use that word OP?

Because that is the impression I have. They dress as an ordinary individual and nothing more, not as anyone with great status or sovereign power, only to resemble the People that vote. It brings them to a mundane level. People think individualism as the opposite: a wonderful ideology of vibrant energy and new touch; instead, the republican robotically takes the mantle of individual and wears it with stolid statesman pride, without a hereditary achievement, sovereign status, or incentive to be something else greater than mere individualistic statesman and take royal photos with their royal family and engage in ceremonial customs and outstanding uniforms and majesty.

>republican mediocrity

I want it on all levels. Where republicans make everything plain and boring. I want to see where it siphons out a national spirit and heritage to boring, international cosmopolitanism and atomic individualistic outlooks even surpassing nations. Anything, really.

>this world

Has become very mundane and republicanism reveals the most mundane aspect of the human condition apart from the most fanciful and imaginative.

Thomas Hobbes

General thread for discussing Thomas Hobbes. He is, after all, the monarchist thinker that most people have heard of. Or rather, there are far more, but he's the one everyone thinks of when you say "monarchist philosopher".

I've always had a weird respect for Thomas Hobbes, weird because I disagree with him on almost everything, from his view on human nature, to his epistemics, to his contract theory. What impressed me in Leviathan, however, were his stringency. He carefully laid down all his premises, answered all the obvious questions he knew his reader would have, and argued with care and precision. This is why it's so easy to point out just where he went wrong. I can't say the same for many other philosophies.

What relatively few critics of Leviathan understand is that Hobbes is essentially an individualist, not a collectivist and not a totalitarian. He even acknowledged a right of resistance, said that the state should further the commonweal by protecting society from crime instead of trying to run society, and he never made any claims to the effect that individuals are merely cells of some greater whole. It would go too far to call him a classical liberal, but really, he wasn't so bad.

Why trust power?

Why should a monarch care about promoting modernisation, taking care of the poor, or staying out of futile wars?

Of course he might- but on the other hand, he may only build palaces, enrich himself and his relations, and wage war to expand the domain of his exploitation.

A Republic operated by and for the people seems more likely to create the first kind of Ruler than pure chance. You may try to argue that Republics are simply controlled by money, but in fact Continental Europe has very stringent laws about political donations.

How do we go about establishing a monarchy in today's liberal-socialist dystopia?

Shit's so fucked up bruhs. I'm not certain we'll be able to see anything like it happening in the near future unless Varg is right and some apocalypse will save us.

Now what do we have that has the opposite effect on people and drastically converts them into traditionalists? I think if we can figure that out or at least start with wrestling the universities back from the leftists and educating kids the RIGHT way, we might have a chance eventually, but it will still take some time to undo the leftist damage and social engineering.

Crown or Constitution; Constitutional Monarchists on Sovereignty of the Crown verse Constitution

A flaring controversy among us monarchists is the ideal of a sovereignty, the power and authority behind a nation, and the ideal of a people, ancestors of a nation and subjects; both of whom, it is said consist together as a nation. The sovereign is the rightful inheritor of the state, the head of a family, and commander-in-chief.

Then popular sovereignty verse the idea of a popular sovereign, being the "Will of the People" verse "the German Emperor" or the ethnic ruler rather than the collective whim of a partisanship. Which office rules supreme, the partisanship or the sovereignty of monarchy? The fundamental question is whether the Constitution is of the monarchy, or the monarchy is of the Constitution; whether the Crown is of the Constitution, or the Constitution is of the Crown.

Which reigns supreme, the Constitution of the Crown? Does the Crown and Constitution consist together as a single unit? If so, how does this correlate? Could the Constitution and the Crown co-exist as a single sovereignty?

To constitutional monarchists, what is your perspective on this issue? How much should the authority of the monarchy be undermined?

Japan is a unique example. The Constitution takes a very powerful role.

STOP PROVING COMMUNISTS RIGHT

MONARCHY DOESN'T ONLY EXIST TO PROTECT PROPERTY RIGHTS, lolbergs.

All governments have an arbitrary motive to respect their subjects. By the grace of God, they don't exist for a singular purpose. Monarchy is different from other governments. A parliament can also claim to represent a shared interest in protecting private property rights. A totalitarian communist regime can claim to share the economic interests of the proletariat. These economic interests are all based on the ideals of a social contract. While social contract theory isn't inherently anti-monarchy, it has been the will of radicals to denounce the purpose of monarchy through social contract theory; in short, they are political animals who only care about their self-conceit and economic gain.

Monarchy is a shared heritage. A shared national identity. History defines a people. Monarchy is a government of authority, based on hereditary rights, the foundational model being the family. The monarchy is just a royal family. This is simple, yet it means everything: monarchy is the government of the people, because it uplifts the true bond of the people. Every proletariat works for his family. Every property right is meaningful under the prospect of future gain, often the prospect of having a marriage or future children. Every household stands for their honor, which corresponds to the AUTHORITY of the father.

Too many monarchists see monarchy through the lenses of a political animal. They don't understand the nature of monarchy. How does monarchy inevitably fix itself? Through hereditary succession, or the authority of the crown, known as sovereignty. This transgression represents not only the honorable succession of ordinary households, and the father's right, but also the world's destiny.

Think of it like the classical Troy and the tale of the Aeneid. It was their destiny that moved them. All governments, under a Divine Will, are taken through their destines, and monarchy is the only government that understands this concept. The Divine Right of Kings is a similar notion, often misunderstood: every government exists under heavenly grace, even the worst of governments, but monarchy recognizes their destiny.

Joseph de Maistre made the point that the state exists under God's Creation, but also the consent of men. The truth is men only consent to obey, and most partisan governments exist like a dictatorship – that is, consenting to obey, and listening to a dictator's directions/speeches. A social contract works on consent, but nobody truly consents to a government. The only social contract that applies to the nature of government is the kind that pivots on the idea of authority.

The state exists for the family. Each life begins with the conception of man and woman. The two stable roles for man and woman are father and mother, both of which are formalized under the name of monarchy. Each social interest begins at the rudimentary model of the family. The natural model for leadership is first known by the actions of fathers. Fatherhood is the destiny of the male sex. Despite being an individual, who isn't a father, the ideal mode of leadership within the sexes is fatherhood. Motherhood is the destiny of the female sex. Despite being an individual who isn't a mother, the ideal mode of leadership within the sexes is motherhood.

Is the separation of church and state anathema to monarchism?

Legal Positivism

Reminder that it was the worst invention in legal history. If we still operated under the assumption that the law was something given, not created, people would both respect the law more and be less eager to change it for their pet project.

Post ITT whenever there are no new posts!

We are going to make this board active from now on. Whenever you browse this board and there are no new posts outside of here, make a post to revive this board! Everything from general banter, smaller monarchist thoughts or just what happens to be on your mind. We will create a community if everything goes right.

To get this started: How did you become a monarchist? For long have you been one? Do you live in a monarchy currently? Or anything else you want to talk about?

Thoughts?

Please Note: I'm a Monarchist who posts on >>>/liberty/, because I didn't know about this board. I am copy n' pasting a thread >>>/liberty/65239 that was posted there, because I want this place to get traffic. Please don't ban me if I broke the rules.

I'm not sure where there is a larger aggregation of monarchists so I might as well ask here. What legitimizes a monarch? "Bloodline" is not an argument, by the way.

But even if it were, what about countries that are historically without a monarch or their only monarch is imposed by foreign powers. Assuming most monarchists are edgy burgers, how would you bring about your style of monarchy to the USA or whatever state after a presumed balkanization?

Post who you think the best princess (pic required), and why you think she is the best.

I say it's Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna Romanova, 'cause she's the prettiest.

I realize that Europe has been in decline ever since the French Revolution, and the subsequent deconstruction and subversion of its values and institutions, among which monarchy was one of the most important

I have doubts however on what can be done about it, especially after the industrial revolution i see a restoration of the Ancien Régime and its virtues more and more unlikely

Is there anything that can realistically be done about it or should we just swallow the black pill and acknowledge that western civilization is just going down the shitter and nobody can stop this?

mrchy how2?

How would you turn a modern western republic into a monarchy? How would you establish a new aristocracy? Should you take a legitimiste pov when reinstating monarchies (bourbons to France, Habsburs to Austria etc) or not? If not, what do?

How deal with nations that have never been monarchies like USA or many Latin American ones? Should they be annexed by European monarchies? Is this realistic? Go!

Monarchist Apologetics

I only recently discovered that there are still serious monarchists today, and I'm still learning about the arguments. In your own words, why are you a monarchist? I want to know why you think monarchism is better than other political systems.

Fuck Yeah, Monarchy!

I'm an absolute monarchist who wants a divine illuminated king to rule his nation and keep it white and right.

I like that video John Alan Martinson did about monarchy. It was like over an hour long but gave the perfect case for why we should have monarchy in great detail and was worth listening through the whole thing.

Unfortunately the channel that hosted it, HumansOpposingJewz, has been wiped out from youtube completely without a trace of it having ever even existed before (not "channel was shutdown for violating rules blah blah") and pretty much every single video by John Alan Martinson that was up on youtube has been purged.

Anyone have that vid?

Hello, /monarchy/. I just wanted to let you know that I'm the new board owner of >>>/kind/, and I'd appreciate it if you'd take the time to drop in and say hello. It's not really devoted to the discussion of topics pertaining to politics, but I think kindness is or should be a virtue valued by all, irrespective of political affiliation!

Modern Monarchy

I would like to start a thread about how monarchy would work in a modern age. For instance how would this shift take place? Where would it take place?
What if there was a rich motherfucker who bought a lot of land (A good size maybe two or three towns)and built shops and homes and contracted people to fill them and work under his command?
