Worries for the Future of Western Civilization

I have often said in the past that I think, overall, the world is in a pretty dark place these days and that coincides quite significantly with the decline of monarchy across the globe. However, perhaps it has been hitting closer to home lately but I have become ever more distressed, irritated and increasingly radical in my views and dispositions. We are at or are fast approaching the point of critical mass for western civilization. Eastern civilization is all but gone already, it went with the Chinese Revolution of 1911 and the post-war period of de-colonization (believe it or not) so that traces of true eastern civilization only linger on in isolated places like Japan, Thailand or tiny Bhutan (and I said “linger” -tradition no longer dominates in any of them) . The internationalists have the world firmly in their grip and with the United States circling the drain, western civilization is going the same way. Of course, all monarchists know that the USA was never a pure example of western civilization, it has never had any of the high culture of Europe but that is to be expected as it is a branch rather than the tree itself. The case of the United States is one of starting out in a lower position but which did better than most in maintaining that position while the rest of the west plummeted much faster.

This may require more explanation than I have time here to detail and I can already hear the internet-outrage boiling up but, as I have pointed out to the America-bashers before, the fact is that there is not a monarchy in the world that does not directly or indirectly depend on the United States for its security. Like it or not, that is the fact of the matter and I at least am very concerned about the toppling of the United States even as a monarchist as there is practically no monarchy in the world that has chosen to use the blanket of security that America provides to build up its own strength in preparation to stand alone. That worries me. The fact is that there is practically no existing monarchy that really matters on the world stage these days. Not that many countries of any sort really do anymore. The fate of the United States is a concern even if for no other reason than that the United States still matters. As a monarchist I am concerned because there is no monarchy left that really matters anymore. That also makes me worry for western civilization as there is not a single country in Europe that really matters anymore. Russia still matters but then Russia, to many people, is not a “European” country.

Russians would be wise to ignore the sizeable community of communist traitors in their midst who are nostalgic for the “good old days” of the Soviet Union when they were a superpower. Russia is actually much stronger in many ways today than it ever was as the Soviet Union (neither have ever been as strong as Imperial Russia was at its peak under the first Nicholas). The mistakes Russia has made today are major ones that I think may have already doomed them but it is nothing like the multitude of smaller mistakes that the Soviets made on a daily basis. Putin himself is responsible for the best and the worst of what Russia is doing today. He has, at least, given Russia a chance to survive though he had to metaphorically make a deal with the devil in terms of foreign policy to do it, the Russians have a chance to take what they have been given and change direction. Putin being one of those rare leaders today who actually does, I think, want his nation to survive and be significant, has given Russia the time to have that chance to do the right thing. All depends on what the Russians do with their opportunity. If they carry on they are doomed but if they use the time Putin has purchased for them to restore the monarchy, revive traditional Russian culture and change direction on the world stage they can not only survive but become immensely successful and possibly go on to save a great many others. However, admitting that changes will need to be made will be difficult so we shall have to wait and see on that score.

Regardless of that though, the heart of western civilization and the monarchies that once guarded that are in Europe and, as I said, no European country matters anymore. Thanks to the European Union, no country matters and the continent as a whole does not matter. Those pushing the EU have always liked to talk about how there is “strength” in their unity but it should be obvious to all by now that this is a sick charade. The leaders of the EU have emasculated the countries of Europe to empower their central EU government while also making sure that Europe itself is never significant again. They are all part of the same internationalist clique. They don’t want any European country to be great because that would detract from the European Union and they don’t really want Europe to be great because they have nothing but contempt for European culture, European history and western civilization in general. Some actively want to destroy it while others are just looking out for themselves and willingly go along with those who do want to destroy it to further their own interests. Europe is being eradicated and this certainly matters and is of concern to me because that means the surviving monarchies of Europe (and those other lands that share a crown with them) will be eradicated too and those that have already fallen will have no country to be restored to.

The internationalist, revolutionary clique has taken hold of the continent and almost every country (like most of the rest of the world) is either a republic or, even if still a monarchy, has been gripped by the republican mentality. Europe is being wiped out on every level. It is being wiped out spiritually, the churches are empty and church leaders care more about “social justice” than salvation. It is being wiped out economically, Greece is just the canary in the coal mine, virtually every country is on track to go the same way. It is being wiped out demographically, native Europeans have all but stopped reproducing while the birthrate of non-Europeans is healthy and boosted by continued non-European immigration (whether legal or illegal) into the continent so that native, ancestral Europeans being wiped out in a human tidal wave of foreign cultures, peoples and religions becomes a mathematical certainty. If you think it cannot happen, go look for some Algonquians, Manchurians or Egyptians (not the Arabs, but the original folks who built the Sphinx) and then get back to me. I would say Europe is being wiped out militarily but that has pretty much already happened. After cutting their own throats in two world wars the Europeans have found that socialism is expensive. After World War II, European countries found that they could not afford both an empire and a welfare state, more recently they have learned that they cannot even afford “free” healthcare and pretty much any sort of military at all. Britain is a heart-breaking example for no matter who is in power in Westminster, the NHS just gets bigger and the royal armed forces just get smaller and smaller.

Right now, by way of that farce known as NATO, these countries depend on the United States to defend them. Similarly, they depend on Russia (and soon Iran) for their energy because the ruling elite have got so many people to buy into the “global warming” hoax and refrain from using the energy that is right under their feet. Dependencies, by their very nature, do not matter -the countries they depend on matter. Russia is happy to provide Europe energy of course, but as the Russians are not complete idiots, it comes at a price and we have already seen how uncomfortable the EU is when paying that price clashes with their own desire to expand and keep their continental Ponzi scheme afloat for a little while longer. As for depending on the United States for security, I doubt anyone who saw recently the White House bathed in rainbow colors to celebrate the imposition of gay “marriage” on the country is standing in fearful awe of the American giant anymore. The countries that do matter in the world probably rolled their eyes and had a good chuckle at that ridiculous spectacle.

So, what is to become of Europe? What is to become of the heartland of western civilization? Well, as usual, there are only two options. Either Europe continues on its present course and grows weaker and weaker until it dies completely or else it takes radical action to change direction. If it chooses to die, then it is gone and none of this matters at all anymore. Monarchy will not survive, the changes in succession laws prove that, because monarchy runs counter to the revolutionary “values” of the EU elites. If Europe dies and monarchy survives it will be monarchies that are raised up after the EU has collapsed, representing totally different peoples with totally different religions, languages and cultures. If that death does not happen, however, monarchists such as ourselves are still not in the free and clear. The EU, as stated, is firmly in the grip of the internationalist elite right now and one of the problems is that they have forbidden any reasonable debate on their position. There is a nationalist counter-movement forming across Europe in many countries but because the traditionalists are shunned or forbidden to speak or equated with the lunatic fringe when they do, the crazy club has more often than not become the only alternative many people see. These people are not monarchists though they will, for the sake of history, tradition and so on, refrain from attacking monarchs so long as those monarchs do not oppose them.

This is the danger that I see: traditionalists are blacklisted, reasonable debate is not allowed and so the only people speaking against the established system are often the unreasonable people and in many instances themselves rather unsavory and frightening organizations. Some are a bit more mainstream, like the Front National in France, but they are intensely vilified and certainly not ardent monarchists or royalists. I hear from people all the time who are being, effectively, pushed into the radical camp because they see no other alternative and because they see less and less stigma attached to being labeled “far-right” since that label is applied to virtually anyone who opposes the EU ruling class such as Geert Wilders, Joerg Haider, Jean-Marie Le Pen and Matteo Salvini among others even if they hold many decidedly non-right wing views on numerous issues and none of them are monarchists (even Wilders in the Netherlands has been very critical of the Dutch monarchy which is generally very popular). So, in short, if Europeans decide they do not want to die, I fear their only option will be to join up with some fairly extremist elements (more extreme than those above). If that happens, I do worry about what will become of the surviving monarchies in Europe.

Even among those that are not particularly anti-royalist in their views, I worry that, as things grow worse and if European peoples finally feel compelled to make such a choice, they may view their royals as part of the problem rather than the solution. After all, for all the talk of monarchs being non-political and non-partisan, what they usually mean is that a monarch is not allowed to be politically “right”, traditional, conservative or to advocate for their own position. Everyone knows perfectly well that monarchs and royals are allowed and even encouraged and celebrated to take political positions and champion certain causes so long as they are ones which the internationalist elite approves of. Things like reaching out to religious groups (provided they are not Christian), racial or sexual minorities, environmentalism or calling for something meaningless but grandly benevolent sounding like “sustainability” is all perfectly fine. Anything, however, that could be considered in any way “right-wing” is certainly not. Additionally, royals have all been brought up in this particular environment and through no fault of their own have often been taught to think a certain way. I happen to think that the current way leads to ruin and if the peoples of Europe one day decide they would rather not be ruined, I am increasingly concerned as to whether or not the remaining royals will be able to “abandon ship” before they are dragged down as well.

The micro-monarchies like Monaco and Liechtenstein have the least cause for worry. Luxembourg also seems relatively safe, though not as secure as the smaller ones. Spain seemed very secure not so long ago but today I do worry about the Spanish monarchy very much. The royals are doing their best to just do what is expected of them to remain popular but if there is a change in direction it remains to be seen which way they would choose to go. The Falange-types have been gaining a little more strength lately and while Franco was a monarchist, the Falange never was and I don’t think any great number of those that go with this crowd are royalists. Belgium gives me cause for concern though it has long been teetering on the brink. Even if the country stays together, the royals have, like most of their countrymen at the present time, taken a very pro-EU stance and if that starts to go it could mean trouble for them. The Netherlands is also very much a cause for concern to me, despite how popular the Dutch monarchy is at the present time. With those who have already shown themselves to be less than devoted to the House of Orange and the new, more ‘egalitarian’ style favored by King Willem-Alexander, I worry that they may find themselves on the wrong side of the line if things turn around.

Of the larger monarchies, the one that worries me the least is the venerable Kingdom of Denmark. As the oldest monarchy in the western world, it has the deepest roots, remains very popular and the current Queen has shown herself to be someone less than enthusiastic about many of the changes that have happened in Europe. The Crown Prince is popular and seems to be taking care to not go too far in any direction so that I think Denmark is relatively safe. Norway, on the other hand, is one that concerns me a great deal. I would expect no problems while King Harald V lives but the next generation worries me a great deal. The Crown Prince and Princess have done it all from promoting man-made global warming in Greenland (despite coming from a country in which oil production is very important) to promoting the cause of transvestites in Nepal, there is scarcely a “progressive” cause they have not taken up. It also doesn’t seem to have won them any fans on the left as members of the Labor Party have, since 2012, started joining with the Socialist Left to support abolishing the monarchy. If there is a major shift in Norway in the future, I could easily see the monarchy being viewed in a very negative way by those who would come to power.

For Sweden, I think the problem is more deeply imbedded. The King is not exactly wildly popular at the moment but Crown Princess Victoria is and most seem to content to wait for her to have her turn. However, Sweden has gone so dramatically to the left that it is hard to see how the monarchy, even purely ceremonial as it is, can survive in a country whose “values” are so diametrically opposed to it. Just as an illustration of where Sweden is, I recall when Obama was elected President of the United States, seeing a Swedish republican advertisement featuring an African actor wearing the King’s uniform accompanied by a short article basically saying that Sweden needed to get rid of the monarchy so that they could have a Black head of state some day. What exactly that would accomplish, I don’t know but I think that illustrates the mindset. The British would seem to be in a better position and I do not think there is any immediate threat, however, there is still plenty of cause for concern. The latest changes to the succession, again, I think demonstrate how there is going to be an inevitable clash between the values of egalitarianism and the institution of monarchy. I don’t see how it is avoidable. In the case of Britain, I think the Prince of Wales has been more astute than he is often given credit for, championing causes associated with both the left and the right at various times. The problem is that I don’t think that is how he is perceived. I think he is perceived more as the British version of Al Gore who thinks the sky is falling and wants to have an inter-faith coronation. It’s not true but I think that is the image in the popular mind.

I have no fear for Britain as long as the Queen lives but I think when the sad day comes that Her Majesty is called to her eternal reward there could be trouble in Britain and I am almost certain there will be trouble in numerous Commonwealth Realms. Charles may not be given a chance and even if he were to cut his own reign short in favor of William (in the manner of the King Juan Carlos of Spain) it would only be a temporary fix as making the monarchy a popularity contest can last only until you have someone unpopular who is unwilling to abdicate. However, for Britain, the royals themselves are not the primary cause for concern that I have but just the overall direction the country has been going in with the new succession law, the abolition of the House of Lords (in all but name and it could be gone in name as well in the future) and regionalism breaking up the country into insignificant mini-states that will have to be forever dependent on some larger power.

All of that being said, these are, as stated, causes of concern for me and not causes for panic. I can still hold out hope that if such a shift in public opinion occurs, the royals of Europe will manage to get out in front of it and save themselves from potential disaster. I can also only hope that the public takes on a more pro-monarchy mentality that allows for a more Japanese-like attitude that, regardless of what the royals say or do, those outside the halls of power today simply assume that the royals really agree with them and will recognize their status as being sacrosanct. There is also the possibility that no change at all in Europe occurs and everything just carries on in the direction it is currently going to its inevitable conclusion. As for most of my opinions above, I am willing to concede that I may be wrong. However, that the current path will not lead to disaster is not one of them. Everything compels me to believe that I am not wrong on that score. If you have any thoughts on the subject, feel free to share them.

  1. Nationalism destroyed the unity of Christendom. The Protestant and French revolutions were extremely Nationalistic and these are root causes the Fall of the West. And you want us to place our trust in Nationalism? Viribus Unitis!

    Only Catholicism, the Empire, and Divine Intervention can save the West now.

    1. Well, Catholicism isn't what it used to be, the Empire is gone and I'm still waiting on Divine Intervention. Read the damn article again -I did not say I wanted you or anyone else to put your "trust" in nationalism! I did not say one damn word about what anyone should or shouldn't do. What I DID say is that nationalists have gotten to be the only option left to the internationalists. Because tradition was abandoned there are no good options anymore. If you might try to actually *read* the article first, you might actually find out you agree with it.

    2. Well, that was quite an ultra religious statement. Religions should stop fighting each other. Protestant Catholic war already ended, people want peace.

      And the French Revolution was bullshit,started by a small elite of disloyal aristocrats clergy and lawyers. Nearly all the revolutionaries were from the upper class.

  3. I generally agree. While I am a centrist who supports both some right and some left wing policies, whenever I speak to leftists and bring up my disagreements with the left, I am usually being accused of being a right winger, at best, and a far right 'extremist' at worst. I do not fully support all right wing policies but I have started to just identify myself as a right winger since it seems to most people its either one or the other (especially to leftists, interestingly).

    As for your points on Russia I must say I would like some clarification. I understand that you do not like the fact that Putin has not restored the monarchy (I don't either but I can see why he did not - at least not yet), and I also understand your concern about communism. However as a Russian I must point out that communism in Russia is not as popular as you might think. Support for monarchies, and for other non-communist forms of government, is considerably high. Don't expect the Communist Party to take over and start another Soviet Union or something like that, as I think even they understand that it would not work. But I'd like to know what major mistakes you refer to regarding Russia.

    1. The statistics that I have seen for a long time are that the communists are the second largest party in Russia. I don't expect them to take over so long as Putin is around, but they seem to have considerable support. For specific mistakes, to me it is mostly in the area of foreign policy, backing up regimes that antagonize others without really benefiting Russia but the biggest mistake is undoubtedly the sell-out to China, giving land to China and giving control of Siberian energy resources to China. If that doesn't change, Russia will be doomed. If you look at what most Chinese people say, you will see that the efforts by Putin to 'make nice' are not being returned. One example is Mongolia, China still blames Russia for Mongolia not being part of the PRC and one day they are going to try to do to Mongolia what they have done to Manchuria and Tibet and if Russia decides to give up and let China have it, we will know just how far Russia submits to the Chinese.

      Most of the other mistakes are not too bad, Russia could survive them, but that is going to destroy Russia if it is adhered to.

    2. Russia and China are mainly forced into an alliance by the USA's growing infringement on their frontiers. It is unfortunate that we are allied to a communist state, but it is an alliance of convenience.

      Delete
    3. If that helps you justify it, good for you but the USA is not infringing on Russia or China's frontiers. The US had more military forces close to China and Russia when they were enemies. And that "ally" of yours, has a historic hatred of Russia (much more so than America that has never fought a war or had any territorial disputes with Russia) and is America's biggest trading partner. This arrangement has also made more countries that used to be friendly with Russia, like Vietnam, less so and more friendly with America because they are threatened by China.

      Don't make me laugh. The only one infringing on Russia's frontiers is the toothless European Union. Unless you seriously want me to believe that Vladimir Putin is actually afraid of Barry Obama...

    4. So I guess I must have just imagined the 2008 Georgia war and the 2014-15 Ukraine crisis, the US taking prominent roles in both and encouraging Russophobia (getting President Saakashvili to bombard South Ossetian civilians and force Russia to intervene, then claim they are the aggressor, then play a major role in the overthrow of the Ukrainian government and make sure that a US puppet regime takes its place, then again try to make Russia look like the aggressor). Now NATO is overhyping this "Russian aggression" in an attempt to get widespread support in Ukraine and Georgia (both on Russia's borders) to get into its alliance. NATO troops are now in Ukraine training the Ukrainian army.

      Russia is a threat to the dollar, having been taking action to get other countries to stop using the dollar in transactions (along with the rest of BRICS), which is why it is targeted. And, yes, the EU is being used as a tool since all of the EU leaders seem to take orders from the White House no matter how much damage it does to their own countries' standings.

    5. Oh, so Putin is afraid of Bush as well as Obama? I didn't realize he was so easily frightened. I don't go in for all this crying and complaining. Unless you are being occupied and ruled, you make your own decisions and the US never directly intervened in Georgia and when Putin retaliated Bush took no action against him. Did the US support anti-Russian elements? Sure, rather like how Russia supports anti-American elements in the Americas. Russia sent missiles to Cuba and you get frightened by America sending field rations to Ukraine? Please...

      NATO is guilty of trying to make people afraid of Russia, no doubt about that but for Russia to be shivering with fear about the "threat" of NATO is hysterical. If Russia pledged to actually fight for some country NATO is interfering in, Obama would soil himself and pull out immediately. You are being fooled by a bunch of blustering and I didn't think Russian leaders were that naive or easily frightened.

      As for the EU being under American control, that is so absurd there is not much I can say. If you believe that, facts obviously don't matter to you and there's nothing I can say that will convince you. The EU doesn't even agree with itself on what policy to pursue, to say nothing of agreeing with US policy. Personally, I would trash the EU and NATO if I could but I had no idea that Russians actually considered them an existential threat. All I can say to that is that I truly pity you. You are being cowed by cowards and reacting to "threats" that have no backing behind them.

    6. I do not know who Putin is afraid of or not. So you are saying, in essence, that we should ignore NATO's obviously anti-Russian posturing and increasingly malevolent actions? I think Stalin tried to something similar with Nazi Germany in 1939-41, and look what happened. Also, behind Obama there are many other political and corporate leaders with quite a bit of influence. Obama himself is not threatening, but they certainly would have no qualms about starting a war with Russia in Europe.

      Its also hard to ignore this when Westerners are constantly accusing your country of being some kind of new Nazi Germany and your president of being a new Hitler.

      How is my EU statement absurd? The EU clearly does whatever the US demands of it. They put sanctions against Russia even though it damages their own economies, they continue to help escalate the crisis in Ukraine despite the negative impacts it has on their relations with Russia and that it brings Ukraine closer to collapsing (creating a failed state in Europe), France gave into pressure from the US to not deliver Mistral carriers to Russia, not to mention they all unquestionably support the actions of the US in the Middle East that do nothing but bring in more refugees into Europe, and so on. Facts are indeed on my side here, if you chose to not accept them and remain ignorant, than that is your problem.

      See, you've gotten so wrapped up in justifying everything your favorite republican usurper does that you've forgotten your own original point. YOU are the one who justified handing over land and resources to China, forcefully relocating Russian families by saying that Putin was afraid of America because of US sympathy for Georgia.

      You wrote: "So you are saying, in essence, that we should ignore NATO's obviously anti-Russian posturing and increasingly malevolent actions? I think Stalin tried to something similar with Nazi Germany in 1939-41, and look what happened."
      You're ignoring them now! NATO and the EU keeps expanding because they know Russia won't fight them. You could stop them tomorrow if you made it clear that one step further means war. NO ONE in power in the west wants to fight Russia! Again, if this is your justification, it's sad because I'm telling you, Russia is being cowed by a pack of cowards. But then, if you think NATO is in ANY way similar to Nazi Germany, you have allowed your fear to become irrational paranoia.

      You wrote: "Also, behind Obama there are many other political and corporate leaders with quite a bit of influence. Obama himself is not threatening, but they certainly would have no qualms about starting a war with Russia in Europe."
      Tinfoil hat stuff. You could say that about any world leader, people in the west say the same thing about Putin. Leaders make the decisions, if you're afraid of Obama and the rainbow brigade, I pity you. But, LET THE RECORD SHOW, that all of your fears have focused on Eastern Europe/Ukraine which had not happened at the time of Putin's sell-out to China. So, obviously, selling out to China didn't save you from the big, bad American empire that you hold responsible for all your misfortunes did it?

      Wow. So people say things about your leader that isn't nice and that justifies everything? Do you have blinders on? I can turn on RT any time and hear the same thing about America (or the BBC or DW for that matter). Remember President Bush? People compared him to Hitler every day, Hell, YOU YOURSELF just compared NATO to Hitler and the Nazis in your first paragraph!!!

      You wrote: "How is my EU statement absurd? The EU clearly does whatever the US demands of it."
      No, clearly, you are choosing to see only what you want to see and choosing your "facts" to fit your prejudice. The EU was formed in the first place with the idea of becoming an economic competitor against the US.

      You wrote: "They put sanctions against Russia even though it damages their own economies, they continue to help escalate the crisis in Ukraine despite the negative impacts it has on their relations with Russia and that it brings Ukraine closer to collapsing (creating a failed state in Europe),"
      And why would the US be pushing for this to happen? The EU mostly fought against putting sanctions on Russia and tried to make them as limited as possible. As I said before, you're seeing a grand conspiracy amongst a bunch of politicians who don't even have a common agenda within Europe much less with America. Expansion of the EU serves the EU, not the United States. And I'm still waiting to hear how allying with China helps this situation. Allying with a communist dictatorship that is the single most murderous regime in all of human history does not help improve Russia's image or fit the pattern you are presenting here of Russia as the poor, weak victim of the big, bad United States.

      You wrote: "France gave into pressure from the US to not deliver Mistral carriers to Russia, not to mention they all unquestionably support the actions of the US in the Middle East that do nothing but bring in more refugees into Europe, and so on."
      France has been much more hostile than America has been, for their own purposes. And it is positively ludicrous to say they support US policy in the Middle East, the US currently HAS NO POLICY in the Middle East as most people have noticed. Where then, according to you, are all the European troops and planes participating in the war against ISIS? Hell, there are barely any Americans taking part.

      You wrote: "Facts are indeed on my side here, if you chose to not accept them and remain ignorant, than that is your problem."
      Funny, considering you have presented no "facts" at all that actually back up your original assertion. Your comments about the Middle East show it. The US is bombing ISIS which has threatened to kill your beloved Putin and to overthrow Putin's best buddy Assad ... and you STILL see an evil American conspiracy at work! You're being completely irrational, but if you're just going to start insulting me in my own place, by all means, go piss off and play your victim card somewhere else.

  4. Unfortunately, I fear that it is far too late to reverse the clock on the EU sentiment. The European Union has eliminated, in a sense, virtually every piece of traditional culture and custom from it's 'member states' (an incredibly demonising name if there ever was one). The only people in Europe who continue to lead a traditional way of life are an ever-diminishing, elderly minority. And once they have disappeared - there will be nothing left. The youth are taught in such an ultra-left-wing, propagandist way, that anyone who dares speak out against the EU is deemed a 'racist', 'xenophobe', 'neo-Nazi', etc. An example of this was in the British general election recently; a party called UKIP (the UK Independence Party - their aim ought to be pretty self-explanatory) came under such media and public scrutiny that effectively they stood no chance; they were constantly bombarded with vile accusations, and those gullible enough to believe them (i.e. a large quantity of the British population) shunned them. People are so easily lead and, dare I say, 'brainwashed' into believing a certain thing that it's as if an their own, individual thoughts and opinions become immaterial. This 'EU education' this current generation are being exposed to completely vilifies everything their forefathers fought for. I dare say that this left-wing belief among the young will make democracy in the future, along with it - freedom of speech, irrelevant. Future European leaders will continue to bow down to the EU, as it is the way they are taught; thus allowing their nations once-rich heritage and previous-glory to be eroded away even more than it already is (if such a thing is possible). Mass immigration will ravage these countries, make them unrecognisable. This once-proud heartland of western civilisation will be no more. Britain has been blessed with a referendum on the EU (it's date has not yet been announced); although the recent opinion polls have shown that the majority are in favour of staying in. I hope to God Britain leaves - it will be their last chance.

    1. UKIP is a good example. When you call people extremists who are hardly that, eventually people are going to drift towards actual extremists because they are getting called that anyway and when reasonable debate is not allowed, the unreasonable parties become the only alternative. But you may be right, it may well be too late to do anything about it even if people wanted to.

  5. I think, a few years ago now, it was when I saw a video of the current heir to the Hapsburg Imperial crown, a young man no older than myself, spout modernist idiocies and was 'embarassed' about his ancestry, that my heart first broke, a little chip that grew into a fissure. And ever since then, and especially when Pope Benedict Abdicated the throne of Peter, my heart pretty much went out of the fight, I stopped posting around about the time numerous other monarchist blogs and sources went dark or stopped updating.

    I agree with you MM, it is incredibly bleak, but the one ray of hope I can share with you is, perhaps, a dark one: the EU cannot last, at least not long enough for the demographic disaster that threatens to befall us becomes permanent. It is already falling a part and while economic, social, political and spiritual disaster are unavoidable at the end of it, whatever is left amidst the rubble, France will be France, Germany will be Germany, Italy will be Italy, because when the fire starts, the conflageration will be such that the cancers cannot hope to survive, even if it burns the greater part of the body. We need not fear the East resurgent, for the East is a shambling corpse, we need not fear the infidel who masquerades as the Caliph, for in playing his hand, he but puts a name and a face to an enemy who was as the mist. There will be blood and fire to be sure, but at this point, thats probably a good thing. One can only hope that those prophecies at Fatima are true, and Russia's conversion occurs, its monarchy restored and resplendent. There is hope, however bleak, however dim, but hope nonetheless.

    Yet no matter how intellectually I believe this is true, I just wish I could honestly feel it.

    1. The Hapsburg adherence to European unity has never been one I understood or supported and I can certainly sympathize with the abdication of Benedict. That stunned me as well and I still cannot help but thinking he was pushed in some way to do it. I do think the EU is doomed because either non-Europeans take over the continent and set up something to replace it from their culture and traditions or the European peoples finally get to the point that they decide not to go extinct and start clawing their way back.

    2. The EU is unrepresentative of European culture and traditions and serves foreign interests of the USA, Islamic world and China. Thanks to them, Europe at the dawn of the century is a global joke, a playground for superpowers.

    3. Considering that the Islamic world and China hate the USA, the EU leadership must have the ability to break the fundamental laws of reality to serve all of their interests. That's one magical government you have over there...

  6. European politics is a fickle business. Across Europe certain nationalist and reactionary conservative parties have been rising (french) National Front, Alternative for Germany, Finns Party. They've been rising in elections and even entering governments, Norway, Finland, and Poland.

    You mentioned Geert Wilders, he's an interesting figure, I can't agree with his homosexualist and radical secularist agenda, but he stands up to the demographic and cultural genocide going on The Netherlands and Europe as a whole. His bitterness towards the monarchy is understandable, the previous Queen dissolved a number of his seats which costed him influence (she then abdicated).

    I have read that that in the Austrian Freedom Party and Greek Golden Dawn there exist considerable monarchist sympathies. Though the articles seemed to be based more off hearsay and vague official and unofficial statements by party members and representatives.

    1. There may be some in Austria but I very much doubt there is any real support for the Greek monarchy in Golden Dawn. For the Austrians, the problem is, as someone mentioned above, that the Hapsburgs have for some time wedded themselves to the cause of a United States of Europe and that is not going to go over well with Austrian nationalists who want their own unique country to be distinct and powerful.

  7. I think that it would take some kind of catyclysm for a world-wide restoration of monarchies: rule by one (natural law perhaps?) might take over if republican law failed. Of course no one should want nuclear war or catastrophic earthquakes. The funny thing about the U.S. is that the president is essentially an elected king: the founding fathers managed to squirrel away the power of the office of monarch into the various branches of government. Nearly every institution from the officer in the military and the teacher in the classroom to the C.E.O. has traditionally had monarchical powers within his domain. What is sickening is the apprehension that a republic which falls today is likely to be replaced by something much worse: direct democracy, Fascism, or Communism. Good job sticking up for the U.S. The U.S. Constitution could, actually, be modified to include a monarch with limited powers fairly easily (the clause about titles of nobility removed and one creating a monarch as head of state). The British Monarchy is so popular in the U.S. that a royal from the house of Windsor might be invited. If the Feferation of States (U.S.) broke up then some states might be tempted to petition for entry into Canada.

  8. Excellent article sir. Speaking as a member of UKIP (and thus a firm Eurosceptic) the situation is bleak. One thing I have noticed is that some other Eurosceptics, in their anger at the situation, seem to think the monarchy has 'collaborated' with the EU.I do point out to them that no Monarch since Queen Anne has wielded the power of veto and since the events of 1649 and 1689 dare not oppose Parliament, even when it is wrong, but it is not enough sadly. The upcoming referendum will be fixed no doubt of that, the Prime Minister wants to keep us in and fills the Lords with his cronies and lackeys so that the EU Bill will be watered down. I would say people are waking up but too many are remaining silent. I remain a firm Monarchist and I know at least that most of UKIP is but I am fearful for the future.
    Off topic and I am not sure if you may have already answered this but what is your opinion of King Michael of Romania's decision? I don't know enough of the situation of course to make an informed opinion, and we don't know the exact circumstances, but it does seem a shame.

    1. UKIP has made the same point but in terms of democracy rather than monarchy and UKIP is also an example of the what is pushing people to extremes. How many times have you heard UKIP, a royalist-led party of libertarian leanings with conservative fiscal policies, compared to the BNP, a republican-led party of extremists with leftist fiscal policies just because UKIP wants to moderate the flow of immigrants? If you want to even have an adult conversation about immigration you are immediately called a neo-Nazi comparable to the BNP, so frustration grows, problems are not solved and the situation gets worse.

      Like you, I cannot be very optimistic about the referendum (if it is even held, I'll believe it when I see it) given what happened in Ireland. The skeptics will be outspent 10-to-1 so it will be a very up-hill struggle even under the best of circumstances (and you know it won't be).

      As for King Michael, I assume you refer to the disinheritance of Prince Nicholas, I mentioned it on Twitter & Facebook, I don't think I have enough on it for a post. I understand why he did it though I'm not pleased about the way the old rule book has been tossed out the window. I hope it doesn't split the Romanian royalist community, and since it is a rather small group it might not, because Spain has shown us what this can lead to. But, what it comes down to, though I don't like these situations, is individual judgment; you either accept that the King can do as he pleases or you do not. Whatever Romanian royalists think about it, I only hope they all come to the same conclusion.

    2. All too true I fear. I wonder what history will think of this situation? The EU has divided and nearly destroyed this nation but we can't do anything else but fight on, even if things look bleak.
      Another off topic point, will you do an article on Agincourt for the anniversary this October? I know it is a little late for a Waterloo one but that would be good to see as well, I re-enact with the 2/44th East Essex (who served in the 9th Brigade and helped see of D'Erlon's Corps) so the Napoleonic Wars fascinates me. I remember a few years back we went to an even at Lincoln Castle and there is a huge bust of King George III in the grounds there, it was part of a statue but was apparently a hazard for low flying aircraft during the war so was cut down to a bust.

    3. I would like to but I can't be too optimistic that I will. I've about given up on trying to plan things very much and this year's WW2-theme has given me plenty of problems. When I get into one period and focus on that it becomes hard to get my mind off of it.

  10. Man is in his integral being a Monarchist; and God Is Absolutely so. This time, of the disintegration of the Modern Age, will bring up to the fore, new Kings, new Kingdoms, and new Heroes from the Reactionary and Traditionalist camp. Of this I am pathologically certain, being a simple fool and Christian.

    1. This is the second one today, I had no idea the whole world was so terrified of the United States. For Russia, it is more powerful today because it is not forced to stretch out its military occupying unwilling countries but mostly because Russia is way more innovative and productive and far less wasteful today in economic terms than it was in Soviet times. Russia is also not throwing away resources to support rebel movements all over the world, wherever they hoist a red flag, today Russia does business but doesn't hand out freebies. Russia today is also much more realistic than the Soviet leaders, who were blinded by Marxist ideology, ever were.

    2. Well, yes. Makes sense. Again, another reason why I am against NATO is because Russia is not a threat and I don't want the EU to expand. I even heard of allowing Turkey in! For God's sake, Europe would have lost her mind to let in the Kebab Empire, with unrestricted immigration.

  12. I share your sympathies. I wish I'd found this article sooner - alas, no use crying over spilt milk. I had to come to terms with the fact a long time ago that no nation on earth supports my interests or beliefs. Christendom is dead, and its resurrection is not coming from within. I would sooner fight them myself then watch another Nationalist Resurgence taint European culture and tradition with a laundry list of atrocities. Arguably, that's why we are at the point we are now: the entire Anti-Occidental movement in academia was Anti-Fascist/Nazi. The Fascists and Nazis successfully convinced everyone they were the sum and whole of their nation's history. Nazis in Germany even today hide behind the German Empire and that's why the ANTIFA vandalize German Empire-era monuments.

    I've personally made a decision I think is rather controversial: try and reconcile Traditionalism with America, under the belief we are the last hope for Western Civilization. To be fair, we've done a lot of work in the way of at least preserving Western Civilization's heritage and culture. Many of us I don't think would've even found these beliefs if we had lived in any nation today but the USA. Most Europeans have abandoned the Old Ways - but Americans have a particular appreciation of them.

    We're also in a unique position geographically, economically, and politically. I believe America has a future, if we turn from our present course and look to the Old Wisdom of the West. But the US needs defending, and it must survive if we're to get to this point. Once it balkanizes and goes down the drain, all will be lost.

    I'm pursuing a career in the US military to this very end. I know what my skills and talents are, and I'm not going to let them wither away while I sulk in the dark like the melancholic romantic I am over the fall of Christendom. I'm prepared to work with what I'm given.

    This is certainly not a popular move, and it might not even work out how I think it will. But I will try - it's better than doing nothing.

    2. MM, It's good to see you sir, I am hoping and praying that the moments of gloom and dispiritedness are passing for you, If I have read your hopefully temporary hiatus correctly. Unlike the gentleman 'KLPV', knowing the US Military, there is little hope in my mind from that direction. I am a Royalist and an American, and I know that being artificial ideological constructs, the republics WILL fall, indeed, are falling. We shall see a revival of Monarchy in our lifetimes.

    4. Oh, I know what you're saying, and it's true that indeed Counter-Revolution is the opposite of Revolution in every way, but only major defeats to the Republican system worldwide are going to convince people of the rightness of the Monarchial principle.

  13. Though I share worry I do not share your fear. Yes Western Civilization seems to be heading rapidly and happily to its own self destruction but even if it we could save it, which I think those of us who consider reactionaries or neo-reactionaries certainly could, the question is "should we?"

    More of the same will simply bring a bigger crash in the future, lets keep it short and if it must be done lets do it now. Let it burn, I say let it all burn, and then may be from the ashes and upheaval we may get a generation that has learned to cry and with that a generation that restores that which we hold dear.

    Whatever may come it is God's Will.

  14. Dear MM, i had been reading your blog for many years, and i regret your decision to cease posting here, you brought me to the first step of my enlightment on the issue of traditionalism.
    I am to this day a monarchist that wants to see the old order restored.
    But let me be clear, it doesn't matter if there are no white people left if there are a bunch of royals still being King in name only.
    The only way that traditionalism comes back is with the Survival of the White Race, there is a White Genocide going on right now as we speak, planned by dark forces from the left and the stablished mainstream right, the public faces of this White Genocide are Merkel, Hollande, David Cameron, the Anti-Pope Francis whom like many others are part of an stablished plan to destroy the White Race.
    This isn't a matter of Monarchy, its a matter of White Survival if we want to see White Kids playing in a White Neighborhood in 100 years rather than being the last of their kind on a musseum, we must push back the Non-White invasion.
    We must foccus on Ethno-Nationalism, in the creation of a safe space for White People, if we don't do that there wont be anything left worth saving, everything that our ancestors and their kings fought for thousand of years will mean nothing, it will be dust.
    I am talking about the very Survival of the White Race, Western Culture, Traditional Christianity and Hierarchical Society.
    There is still hope, Nationalism is on the rise and the tensions between Native Whites in Europe and this Invaders so called Immigrants will lead to massive strife and Civil War, the rise of Nationalism in all shapes and flavours is inevitable.
    I hope that you read this message and respond something, you have always been a source of ideological inspiration.

  15. Tough like many I sympathies with the nationalist cause it is not the the solution, let us remember that it was the rise of nationalism that eventually began to erode Christendom.

    Also I find it narrow to think that it is only the "white race" that is in danger here, It is in large than that you being from Argentina as fellow South American you should know that very well.

  16. Easy on the BNP. They are monarchists (constitutional, assuming the monarchy continues to represent native British and their heritage). They aren't Nazis. They're British nationalists. They've been eclipsed by UKIP (which is fine).

    ReplyDelete
  17. The BNP believes in the monarchy.

    King Edward the VIII almost stopped WWII, and German Prince Max Hohenlohe nearly established a deal with Hitler stepping down for peace. These efforts were subjugated (see the Focus Group http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/The_Focus_Group and http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/Winston_Churchill). That war ended our group. I see people defending Christianity here. See Caesar's Messiah: https://www.youtube.com/user/caesarsmessiah

    Prince Charles doesn't really believe in Christianity. He believes in British history, science (which includes psychology), and philosophy. He should reform "the faith" for the British tribe or else there will be nothing left of us in a few hundred years. We need a new religion - call it "Britishism" and our most holy day of the year will be "Britmas."
