Conservatives before I start this off , I’d like to congratulate you on temporarily taking control of the government. It was a hard fought campaign and I am sure some of you didn’t really want to support the current president. But you understood that the other option was far worse than Trump. I hope he successfully delivers on immigration and rebuilding this fine nation of ours.
The first thing I’d like to bring up is the “the government should fear it’s people” worldview that many patriots have. It’s a sensible view to have of course. After all who wants to live under an unjust government? Probably a very masochistic individual. The embrace of a populist and nationalist candidate and a rejection of globalism in favor of nationhood was the right thing. The right has ceded a lot of ground to their opponents. Relearning that it is important to conserve the nation was the first step. You’re on the right path. But while you were sleeping for decades , The left has successfully torn down every norm that was important to conservatives at one point. Not only that but the “conservatives” that claim to represent you have put your sons and daughters in a scenario that not only costed them their lives but also destabilized the middle east.
Which lead to the migrant crisis that is currently harming Europe and will eventually come here. If you’re not careful. The government does not fear you because the people that run it do not have permanent ownership of it. Politicians only rent power while a monarch owns it. A monarch owns the land and he must take care of it because it will belong to his heir one day. He must be very careful not to ruin his family’s reputation because the nobles and common folk may rise up to depose him. We all know that removing kings is a nasty business. A good or decent monarch will do everything he can to avoid this.
Now I do understand that an authoritarian system like monarchy is something that isn’t very American. But it could lead to a more conservative and traditional society. Luxembourg and Monaco are two constitutional monarchies where the monarch has a reasonable amount of power. Monaco does very well for itself economically. Luxembourg is ranked 15th in press freedom and ranked 14th in economic freedom . It’s freer than the United States is in those categories. But the common argument is that monarchs are tyrants and that’s why we should not have them. Yet under monarchy , these people are free. Other than having an actual monarch ruling Monaco. They have a conservative majority in their national council.
Conservatism in America has failed to do it’s job and the rise of Trump should have been a reality check. But we still see members of the republican party touting the same old line but with a few new additions to it. The conservative movement has failed to successfully conserve a lot of things. The last stand of conservatism before Trump was anti abortion and guns. Now the American right has gain the courage to be anti immigration. Your movement has failed to defend Christianity and traditional marriage. Conservatives were run out of the media and academia by the left. Now the minds of the people are at the mercy of your enemies. You lost to right wing populism and leftism because you lack pragmatism when it comes to the game of politics. Refusing to play the game in favor of principle is why you lost.
If you want your conservative America back you will have to do a few things. It is important that you be very strict on who gets let into the country. If group X reliably votes one way and group Y reliably votes the other way. Your opponents do enact policies that bring group Y here. So that they can take power from you. Austria had an election last year that you should learn from. Rural/Worker vs Urban/Degree holder voting in this post, I show you which groups vote for what. You can also see this in who voted for Trump and Clinton. You will have to infiltrate the cathedral and drown out left wing voices. The cathedral is religion, media , and academia. Crown a monarch and establish a state religion. Of course, this is another thing that goes against the American way. But recognizing Christianity instead of a single sect will probably take care of the issue.
Allowing the church to grow a little stronger will reduce the need for welfare. Because the church will return to it’s role of helping the sick and poor. Instead of just being a social gathering that may do charity once in awhile. When it comes to healthy norms and capitalism it may be time for some rethinking. I’d suggest looking at my article The amoral market.
For further research on your part I do have some suggestions on where to look. The counter revolution is a good monarchist blog ran by some friends of mine. Weimerica weekly at social matter is a good cultural podcast for you to check out. The Distributist Review is a good catholic distributism website. The mad monarchist is a good monarchist history blog that is worth a look. Anti-Puritan isn’t exactly within this sphere of politics but it’s still worth a read. I hope you enjoyed this very long post. Have a wonderful day!
