The Counter-Revolution: Crowning the World Again | Part I

As monarchists and religiously devout men, we occupy a place the world has lacked for centuries. We stand alone against many forces which fight against any remaining good.

Sophistry is the softest, and violence the most virulent act of these foes. We remain firm in our foundations, opposing the world dominated by the poison of the Frankfurt School and the emotional appeals to false liberty brought about by the “Enlightenment”. Our ideas have roots in the greats, such as Plato, Aristotle, and St. Thomas Aquinas, in fulfillment of commandments from God Himself. We honor the duty set before us by the Apostle Paul to honor the King, and to insure the survival of the Church’s greatest defender – the institution of monarchy.

I think he’s a bit too hard on our Founding Fathers – they weren’t all Christ-denying Deists! – but otherwise, I am basically in agreement with this essay. A lot of good and thought-provoking commentary!

The most immediate response by most is that monarchy is an absolute failure. Chaos reigned in the streets, there were constant invaders from foreign lands, and shadowy figures in government had more control than those who were presented to the people.

No. That’s right now.

Isn’t that the sad truth…….?

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which out techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
