Just another reactionary stranded in the wrong century and on the wrong coast. Politically I reject the Whig Theory of History and much of the so called Enlightenment which seeks to elevate the sovereignty of man above that of God. While democratic republicanism may work in some situations for a period of time, I do not accept it as either an ideal form of government or as one that is suitable to all peoples in all times and circumstances. History also has shown that republics tend to have short life spans as they inevitably succumb to corruption and populism characterized by the plundering of the public treasury and even extending to the abandonment of the basic foundation stones of civilization in order to curry favor from the electorate. Today in the United States we live in a country founded by a group of men, mostly lawyers, who chose to secede from their country in the name of limited representative government. What we have inherited however, is a political oligarchy run by a bizarre combination of Wall Street plutocrats and left wing socialists with final and absolute power residing in the hands of five un-elected jurists who wield more authority with the stroke of a pen than King George III could have ever imagined.

Conceding that no form of government is perfect and with the strong caveat that any state will function better if it is supported by a population with shared cultural and social values, I favor Christian Sacramental Monarchy as the least bad basis for the organization of the political state.

"My principles are only those that, before the French Revolution, every well-born person considered sane and normal." - Julius Evola

Religiously I am an Orthodox Christian.
