I like oddballs as my views, per my profile if you are interested, are themselves odd on PoFo.
In the past, I meandered between various positions; national bolshevik, monarchist, traditional reactionary, strasserite, and ''leftist'', Anarchism, Georgism, socialist of various types, back and forth. I had a number of basic premises to work out one way or another in my mind, which I've done pretty much now. Consider too that the New World American political ideology spectrum does not relate very well with that of the Old World, whereas most of my views are fairly recognizable to any European or other Old Worlder past or present.
Basically, my pessimism and my altruism fought; is the world capable of change and progress for the better? Certainly, not on it's own, but it is capable irregardless of the debate of what that change for the better might constitute specifically.
As far as central government goes ideally, I have the feeling that any society constituted under the principles I suggest would be thought ''illiberal'' by modern standards, certainly authoritarian.
Regarding the Socio-economic views I have these days, and my basic distaste for the modern era and capitalism, I'm pretty socialist or rather ''collectivist''. various evils permitted but not encouraged however, given human nature, and so forth.
So in other words, pretty much the Soviet type republican system in form minus the official atheism, with Church and Party-State working in Harmony to the betterment of society both spiritually and temporally. No illusions about human nature, but simply a desire to do right by my fellow human beings however.
“Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,” the borderer said, still starring somberly at the Cimmerian. “Civilization is unnatural. It is the whim of circumstance. And barbarism must ultimately triumph.”
