A Fifth Column in Bunicken?
The Iron Confederacy’s new recruitment campaign has brought many new members into our region, including new arrival Temple State, a Swedish Catholic clerical-fascist with experience fighting against communist insurgents in both Sweden and in Ukraine. This is why the most recent debate regarding whether or not fascism is reactionary was an important topic to be discussed in our regional message board (RMB).
The debate started with Temple State defending a position of Christian technocratic feudalism with a perceived similarity to some of the views of Julius Evola, the Italian self-described “superfascist” and ideological progenitor of neo-fascist ideologies. Regarding policy, Temple State advocated rewarding soldiers with property to ensure that titles are not inherited, but only earned by each and every individual of his generation on basis of merit. Temple State also asserted that the philosophy of Fascism was a reactionary movement that predated Mussolini, and was essentially symmetrical to the proto-feudal system of landowning magistrates dating as far back as the Roman Empire itself.
Tupolite, His Excellency’s Prime Secretary, pointed out that proto-fascism had a combination of rightist as well as leftist properties, giving the example of the French and Italian national-syndicalists who, in the vein of French syndicalist philosopher Georges Sorel, practiced far-left economics, while ultimately substituting Marxism for the integral nationalism espoused by French national-conservative and monarchist reactionary Charles Maurras in his magazine publication Action Francaise, and could therefore not be simply described as reactionary. Furthermore, Tupolite expressed that Temple State's definition of fascism was incorrect, quoting from Mussolini's Doctrine of Fascism, which states "[d]ead and done for are feudal privileges and the division of society into closed, uncommunicating castes." What this quote references is fascism's true economic policy as a corporatist state which uses welfare, negotiations, and government projects to improve the lives of all citizens without abolishing the middle class, as well as denouncing the reactionary concept of feudalism as excluding popular integration of the masses.
This discussion came to a head when Temple State accused Tupolite’s interpretation of fascism as being “too left-wing” and bordering on Strasserism, and denounced his support for decreased social and economic divides within the major ethnic constituency of the nation as a form of egalitarianism. Tupolite was quick to use his prerogative as Prime Secretary to enforce the respect that his station demands in response to these wholly inaccurate claims. Subsequently, Tupolite delivered a public speech to clear up any and all misunderstandings that the debate may have caused. After the conclusion of the speech, Vlandia, alias Rhomain, respected Father of the Fascist Revolution, reaffirmed his confidence in the Prime Secretary, declaring that he would “follow (Tupolite) to the gates of hell and back.”
What can be learned from this discussion is that there are ideologies similar to fascism with an entirely different economic system in base. Of course economy system is vital to our prosperity, but this does not mean that we cannot recruit socially like minded people who share many of the same goals as us. We need idealists, truth seekers, and those who are opposed to degeneracy. These ones may initially have different goals from ours, but they can still be educated and can still assist us in accomplishing our mission.
One of the recent initiatives discussed among His Excellency’s State Defense Commission is the issue of declining activity among some incumbent ministers of the government. Sijiao, longtime Director of Civil Cohesion and permanent member of the Commission, has recently allowed his nation to cease to exist (CTE), demonstrating that even the Social Integralist State’s most historically adept operatives have grown accustomed to slacking off. To combat this malaise, Emperador Hispanyo and Prime Secretary Tupolite have been hard at work assessing new candidates for certain positions occupied by the habitually inactive and reliable. Temple State, whose enthusiasm for government and activity levels have been relatively high as of late, has been considered to replace Sijiao as Director of Civil Cohesion on the precondition of future service in a TIC military operation. In addition, the office of the Director of Immigration, occupied for months by frequently inactive citizen The Oneundreth Reich, has been recently occupied by permanent State Defense Commission member and Integral Social Vanguard (ISV) Secretary New French Etat, whose record of superb administration not only includes previous service as Prime Secretary for the Iron Confederacy but also contributions to close ideological affiliate regions International Fascist Federation and Fifth Empire as IFF Bouncer and Imperial Minister of Foreign Affairs, respectively, with his puppet-nations Kizerns Borond and Neo-Cuba. Replacement of Archbishop CrimsonScribbles as Director of Religious Affairs with either Temple State or Rhomain has been considered due to CrimsonScribbles’s seeming lack of particular dedication to the Iron Confederacy over other pro-Catholic regions, lack of in-region presence, and the government’s preference that a majority of available positions should be occupied by natives, but this idea was scrapped on the basis that acting in this manner would result in cessation of relations with the Shrine of St. Margaret Mary and by extension with the Virtual Roman Catholic Church (VRCC). Further changes to government have been planned by Hispanyo and Tupolite, but information about these plans is not forthcoming at this time.
When New French Etat spoke in the RBM about clerical-fascism, the topic sparked a debate regarding Church and State. Once more there a divergence of opinion between Prime Secretary Tupolite and new arrival Temple State on the topic, with Temple State expressing his support for a complete theocracy. Tupolite instead took the position that the state and the church must demarcate respective fields of activity beforehand by treaty to avoid conflict, while affirming an understanding of the ritual significance of Christianity to virtually all European nations. Though enthused with Tupolite’s pro-Catholic policy, Temple State could not help but object to Tupolite’s view on the matter due to Tupolite’s rationale of “psychologizing the faith.” New French Etat, though a clerical-fascist like Temple State, took a stance more in agreement with Tupolite’s, though from a different philosophical perspective, stating that all governments except for the Vatican are essentially governments of man and therefore that a confessional state, as opposed to outright theocracy, would have to be enough.
The doctrine of Church and State did not exist before the Enlightenment. However, ever since churches and kings have ruled nations coherently, there has existed a disparity between which party should have more power, with such historical examples as the Investiture Controversy in the England of King Henry II and the Holy Roman Empire of Kaiser Heinrich IV and the internecine Guelph-Ghibelline warfare in medieval Italy. Most current governments are not only secular, but some, especially contemporary left-wing governments in Europe and Latin America and the oligarchic tyrannies of China and North Korea, are anti-religious and/or anti-clerical and seek to undermine the morals and values of the nations over which they preside. However, giving power to uncompromising zealots always results in inhuman persecution and public resentment for whichever faith the leader claims to have adopted. This is one of the reasons for the decreasing respect for Christian values in the Western world. Yet still Christian values are integral to the Fascist state, whether those nations are Christian or not. This is because rather than demanding what non-believers must practice, Christian leaders instead tell non-believers what they must not practice for the benefit of themselves and their communities. An example of this can be seen from the former Empire of Japan which banned pornography and sexually explicit material despite the fact that their native religions did not forbid these things. This was because the Japanese Constitution took elements from the Bible and the American Declaration of Independence without sacrificing its unique national traditions and culture or its distinctly illiberal prewar line of political development.
Alternatively, it is possible for a government to have a state religion without persecuting citizens who are not members of that faith. This of course would require certain immutable legislation to ensure that no religion is oppressed. The Father of Fascism, Benito Mussolini, re-instated the Catholic religious teaching in Italy’s schools, made Roman Catholicism the state religion, and established Vatican City by ratifying the Lateran Treaty with the Holy See, yet during this time the religious rights of all faiths, including Judaism, were protected by the state. However, as Mussolini came under pressure from the Third Reich, religions in Italy started to face persecution, even resulting in the loss of Catholic privileges. However, in countries like Spain and Portugal during the fascist era, such atrocities never occurred.
In recognition of the lack of a public forum where curious fascists, Third Positionists, and miscellaneous sympathizers to the cause could field their queries for the TIC government, and in hopes that regions with whom TIC refuses embassies yet has an interest in nonetheless could use this forum discuss foreign policy matters and resolve differences, the State Defense Commission recently approved the establishment of an official, government-authorized embassy thread within the NationStates Gameplay community. Initial reception has been mostly hostile due to the unfortunate predominance of anti-fascists in these forums; nevertheless, this move represents a meaningful step in improving the Iron Confederacy’s presence on the world stage. Notable mention should be given to Xoriet and Jar Wattinree, two Pacifican raiders and enemies of the state who have been known to take delight in taunting His Excellency the Emperador on occasion, as well as Federation of Conservative Nations (FCN) native and known anarcho-capitalist LiberNovusAmericae, who alone out of all the non-fascists to post in the thread had the courtesy to clarify that he had no intentions of opposing us militarily. In this reporter’s opinion, more non-fascists should adopt this man’s commendable stance when dealing with those they disagree with.
Prime Secretary Tupolite has recently begun a new initiative inspired by the historical fascist doctrine of the corporate state to consummate the ISV’s long-standing promise to create a revolutionary new order within The Iron Confederacy. Tupolite implored the region’s population to come forth with independent ideas for boosting social and recreational activities so that these various categories of activity could be regulated by the state through the system of centrally controlled syndicates. Already the Iron Confederacy Media Distribution Syndicate (ICMDS) has been established to publish this very paper, and an interview series “Great Leaders” is purported to also be in the works. A second syndicate, the Iron Confederacy Leisure Time Organization (ICLTO) has been established to supervise future recreational activities in the region. A regional roleplay server has been suggested to fall under this realm of activity, but has thus far not been opened to public participation.
Reports from the Iron Confederacy’s allied government in the Imperial Catholic Alliance (ICA) indicate that there was a concerted effort by the liberal-democratic government of the Federation of Conservative Nations (FCN) to infiltrate the Discord servers of fascist and fascist-sympathetic regions for intelligence-collection and espionage purposes. Krich Aerd, the Princeps/head of government of the ICA and a friend of several members of the State Defense Commission, recounted exposing one of Jakobly’s past infiltration attempts to the Decreeist regime in Farkasfalka and a subsequent attempt by Jakobly to uncover confidential details about ICA operations by feigning interest in that region, shortly after the ICA’s initial secession from the FCN. Possibly due to resentment of his superiors for their mockery of his repeated failures, Jakobly seemingly turned on the FCN’s political elites and tried unsuccessfully to hack into the account of FCN founder Gagium. This resulted in the deletion of Jakobly’s nation and the temporary flight of Gagium and other influential FCN mainstays from the Conservative Party, though most have since rejoined as the party has come under slightly less incompetent leadership. TIC and the other fascist states, which are constantly under external threat by a constellation of retrograde and antisocial sorts, should only hope that our enemies’ efforts to infiltrate us in the future should be so inept and miscalculated as Jakobly’s.
Drama is underway in TIC’s closest and most loyal allied region, the Holy Reich of Bunicken (HRB), as the Reich’s Empress and ambassador to TIC and the ICA, Kaiserin Lady Morrighan, has been attacked in a civil suit by her associate Dark/Jackson Frazier, who is another high-ranking Bunicken official. The nature of the suit was apparently motivated by Jackson’s personal distaste for Morrighan’s fascist ideology and desire to promote libertarian, democratic, and capitalistic forms of thought in and outside of their region. Kaiser Wilhelm of Bunicken’s banishment of Jackson’s friend Confederacy Jim for presenting a security threat to the Reich may also have exacerbated the situation. While many details surrounding the fiasco are still nebulous as of the writing of this article, it appears that the case has ended with Lady Morrighan’s departure from Bunicken under a tense atmosphere of insuperable internal pressures. What is certain is that Jackson’s actions are motivated by a palpable desire to purge all traces of fascism from the Reich’s government and a secondary desire to influence Confederacy Jim’s return to Bunicken, possibly in a position of renewed status. In this reporter’s opinion, the events evidence that Jackson, Jim, and other libertarian elements in Bunicken have constituted themselves with malicious intent as a fifth column in HRB politics with the ultimate goal of dismantling Bunciken’s healthy and prosperous alliances with fascist governments and decentralizing power on the side of domestic politics to leave the Reich’s once-powerful state in shambles. Lady Morrighan has since resigned from Bunicken after many malicious lies were spread about her, sacrificing her position in order to ensure that Kaiser remains free from blackmail. Now, one can only hope that someone restores order and punishes these contemptible traitors before it is too late.
Therefore, it is necessary for the Italian youth to lend clear expression to this revolt through an ideology and programme, so as to ever more broadly and consciously combine their forces and confidently progress along their path.
We wish to share the following notes with our friends and comrades. They are simply conceived as a starting point for the formulation of a Youth Charter to be approved by a national congress, on the one hand as a profession of faith free from all ambiguity or wavering and, on the other, as a means of action for the broad coordination of the forces of the new Italian generations, or at any rate the most vital ones.
We conceive youth not as a matter of age or a biological fact, but essentially as a spiritual attitude, as a tone and style of life. It is defined by the enthusiasm and generosity of those who follow an ideal simply out of love for this ideal; by a yearning for the unconditional, which is inseparable from any idealism, by a taste for action; by an impulse towards renovation, towards marching forward; by contempt for easy living.
Youth has a revolutionary character, where revolution is understood not as an inordinate desire for what is new and different or as a subversive force, but rather as intolerance for stagnation, a yearning to ensure the perennial relevance of one's ideal, and as a constant fire destroying all inertia and overcoming all obstacles.
Youth - our youth - therefore show themselves through a spiritual, heroic, and agonistic view of life. They reject all forms of materialism, all economic or socialistic myths, in all domains. It sees Americanism and Bolshevism as two sides of the same illness - not as two possible options. To both it thus opposes the right and value of a dominating personality, beyond the world of matter and quantity, of mercantilism and collectivism.
From this inner form of youth, the following political corollaries are derived:
We completely reject the myth of 'immortal principals,' along with all that is based on them. To the atomistic, egalitarian, and libertarian concept of the individual, we oppose the differentiated and qualitative one of person, understood as dignity that is not given to everyone but must be earned, and which - even when it has been earned - is not the same for everybody. The inseparable counterpart to this is hierarchy.
We conceive the state as a super-naturalistic order within which the value of one's personality are integrated and each human activity, arranged according to a system of disciplines, may acquire a higher significance. The state must never degenerate into a cold and impersonal entity, into a leveling legal abstraction. The state must be made up of men and leaders of men. Authority, conceived first of all as spiritual authority, is the basis of the true state - our state. At the same time, authority means power.
Freedom, in the true state, must be conceived not in individualistic and democratic terms, but rather in relation to its specific function within an organic system. The true freedom is not that of the abstract 'rights' of natural law theory, but rather that which is exercised through relations of obedience and command - of spontaneous obedience and responsible command.
The nation develops from being a naturalistic reality defined by ethnic, territorial, and linguistic factors, or an association of citizens, into a spiritual fact when it is integrated within the state. The state represents the higher conscience of the nation, manifesting itself within it as an idea and power.
Both the liberal concept of culture and the simply humanist or aestheticising one are quite foreign to the youth - the new or, at any rate, more lively generations. They primarily conceive of culture in classical terms, as being synonymous with style: one's inner style. In the climate of this difficult age, they no longer value mere bourgeois art and disorderly, subjective creativity that is detached from all principals and shows no character or uprightness. The heroic view of life goes hand-in-hand with a realism that sets clear limits upon the previous worship of the 'intellectual.'
Precisely in the name of its heroic and anti-materialist conception of life, the youth equally oppose the widespread mental distortion which places every human activity into the category of 'labour.' As in all normal civilizations, the term 'labour' must be limited to the more materially conditioned, and hence subordinated, forms of human activity. The higher expressions of human personality must be defined not in terms of 'labour,' but in terms of action. Neither the 'state of labour' - strictly speaking - nor the 'humanism of labour,' both of which betray a proletarianised view of life, can fulfill our ideal. This ideal - let us stress once more - is chiefly a heroic one. It is above the world of labour and production (The last words for Bolshevism as much as Americanism) that it finds the highest forms of interest and modes of personal realization.
The family is among the values to be defended both against Communism and against the liberal-atomistic conception of the individual. Yet in order to promote and protect it from the process of dissolution now well underway, it must be 'de-bourgeoisised' and integrated with the concepts of the folk and tradition - those of the blood as much as of the spirit. Only then, once the family has ceased to be a mere naturalistic and conformist reality, can its order be organically restored within the state, thereby confirming the hierarchy of values under mortal threat by self-serving democratic and liberal conceptions.
The youth conceive the party system and democratic representation as resurgences of the past, as an outdated system whose incapacity to face current problems is increasingly evident, especially in Italy. The Italian youth feel the need for a corporative system of representation, which takes the specific form of categories of value and hierarchies of competences: all this, outside of any party or cabal, within an organic system that finds its center in a superior principal of authority, the purely political principal which stands as the basis of the true state.
The youth want Italy to regain its dignity and confirm its inseparable unity; it wants suitable, energetic, and resolute men to proudly proclaim the country's rights before foreign powers and the new supra-national blocs of East and West, by adamantly refusing to follow those who - in the name of a defeat for which not our, but their own deceit is to be blamed - wish to brand both Italy and ourselves with the mark of servitude, or at any rate of perpetual subordination.
However, given the power of the competing world forces and interests, the youth look towards the establishment of a bloc of European states on a national basis, as the expression of a new generation and of a reborn, august tradition that extends through the centuries all the way back to Rome. Consequently, there is no plan to achieve artificial unity through a feeble and inefficient 'European federal parliament.' Here too, the idea is that of an organic, virile, and hierarchical unity to which each European country may contribute with its own genius, while preserving its own individuality and rightful place.
Within this framework, Italy may serve a higher mission not so much as a 'Latin' nation, but as a Roman one; and this, to the extent that, as the most adequate means for reacting against the current climate or moral, political, and social disintegration in our country, it will prove capable of drawing upon those elements of style and uprightness that shaped the Roman man and, later, the man of the Romano-Germanic European civilization.
In accordance with these guidelines, the Italian youth seek to establish a spiritual and national movement that - in order to rain the cadres of a new ruling class constituting an 'order of believers and fighters' - will pursue the following goals:
To steer the youth as a whole: to detoxify those sections of it that have fallen under the spell of either Left-wing currents or of the 'democracy' now in vogue; to take a stand against those decaying and degenerate agonistic elements that live from hand to mouth and know nothing more interesting than sport, dancing, and films.
To spark a new awareness, in universities as well as workplaces and clubs, by supporting and integrating the explicitly political action of the party.
To heighten the feeling of profound, existential detachment between the current ruling class and a lively, young, and revolutionary force that follows its own path and from which a new Italy and a new world will spring forth and affirm themselves.
To establish and develop contacts with the young, or at any rate most lively elements, in other European countries so as to ensure an appropriate coordination of the goals and the means to attain them.
To provide a distinctive contribution to the political battle being waged by the MSI, to which the youth is offering its solidarity, trusting it will not be disappointed. This contribution will take the concrete form of doctrinal intransigence and of a rigorously pure Ideal, made possible by the fewer constraints imposed upon a youth that is to present themselves chiefly as a spiritual movement.
Gracious and loving God,
Let your Spirit be with us today. Hear our prayers, and increase in us the will to follow your Son Jesus.
Help us to draw on the resources of our faith as we use the opportunities of our democracy to shape a society more respectful of the life, dignity, and rights of the human person, especially the poor and vulnerable.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
As members of the ICA, i think it should be mandatory to denounce all WA proposals contrary to Catholic Morality.
