The mistakes of divine right have been refuted. Nobody said anything about being able to wipe them from history. Simple artisan Paine laid it all out quite plainly, if you were to only look.

Sort of archeological sociology. He pieces together the world of Homer and the world he was trying depict. Very interesting to me as it is, but more so that he shows the roots or royalty.

Butterfly is right on this, which doesn't say much for our NuRight larpers.
Divine Right is hubris and completes the descent into Christian degeneracy. It's carte blanche for moral faggotry and is one of the major causes of liberalism. Governmental types are not a good thing in themselves and once they betray their own foundations they are perhaps worse than even their opposed types. It's no mistake that ancaps, fascists, and other NuRight retards tend to have sentiment for the absolute worst form of monarchism.
Liberalism is really just a degenerate form of monarchism in which its power and sense of divine right is extended to all people.

>> No.13968238

Interesting theory, but I think liberalism has far more to do with the increasing wealth of a civilization and the subsequent opportunity for indulgence. We all have the potential to engage in self-aggrandizement and degenerate excess without proper guidance; it's inherent to our nature, we don't need the notion of extended 'divine right' to explain such behaviour.

What system do you suggest would be more efficacious in retarding liberalism than fascism, monarchism, or traditionalist religion?

>> No.13968293

>I think liberalism has far more to do with the increasing wealth of a civilization
Liberals, expert salesmen, have sold you shoddy merchandise. It may extend a sort of divine right to everyone, but hardly everyone attain it. They’ll always be a minority and always require vast amounts of poverty and homelessness
>We all have the potential to engage in self-aggrandizement and degenerate excess without proper guidance; it's inherent to our nature
Our “nature” is highly malleable. We’ve just grown decrepit in this long-standing traditional system

You know what system I’d suggest.

The preferred system of government is a limited monarchy with a strong aristocracy to check it, along with considerable influence from the Church. This was the status quo for most of the Middle Ages and it worked out pretty well.

>> No.13969250

The real question for modernity is how to retrieve authentic aristocracy, and hierarchy, and organic community without surrendering the underlying spiritual "meaning" of democracy, socialism, and individualism. The cross is the best symbol for this, combining with the vertical with the horizontal. The point is to retain both dimensions, not sacrifice one to the other. The vertical should not be flattened out into a pure horizontal plane like it has under modern democracy, and the horizontal dimension of human life should not be narrowed into a linear totem pole like it has been for most of human history, with the "capite censi" or "popular estate" occupying a single rank at the bottom, even though it's 97% of the population.

Anyone who longs for a straightforward return to ancien regime feudalism or god forbid some romantic vision of a caste system is a moron. None of the thinkers who yearned for the organic communism or natural aristocratic qualities of the Greek polis were under any illusions about the totalitarian aspects of that organicism, or the fact that it was built on the backs of slaves, dalits, Helots, etc.

The modern rule of money, what the average man calls "liberal democracy," can't be escaped by fleeing back into feudalism. The modern oligarch, controlling the modern herd with the indirect and invisible yoke of usury, will happily support simplistic reactionary philosophies because their naive nostalgia for paternal overlords can easily be used as a vehicle for cementing the domination of the financial oligarchy. Where is that new-but-old aristocracy going to come from when it's time to restore feudalism and the divine right of kings? The only two classes left are merchants (slave-owners) and indebted wage-workers (slaves). The aristocrats won't come from the latter class, so they'll come from the former, which means they will be well-polished sons of merchants, with fancy bourgeois educations to help them trick you into thinking they're aristocrats, but no natural sense of noblesse oblige.

You can't escape this hell on nostalgia alone and you can't turn back history. But if you try to sublate all the best aspects of the incomplete systems that have already been tried, like the organicism of the Greek polis, the radical individualism of modern democracy, and the genuine nobility of some aristocratic traditions, you can create something new that overcomes all of their weaknesses (totalitarianism, atomism, petty feudal oligarchy). Conversely the moneyed elites are trying to do the same thing from the other angle: what they want is a petty feudal oligarchy, governed by them, whose atomism is totalitarian. They want all the "obverse," negative sides of these historical moments to be synthesised into one final hell. We should be doing the opposite and trying to sublate all the positives to cancel those negatives.

As you say, the secret is the Cross. Noblesse oblige was born from Christianity; it was the "baptism" of the old Roman aristocrats and generals, infusing them with a sense of charity, a spirit of piety, and a meekness of spirit. Of course the average duke or knight could definitely be a bastard, but if the nasty ones were held in check at all, they were held in check by a Christian sensibility, one which, if they did not subscribe to it personally, they felt its shadow over them and reacted to it nonetheless.

This, of course, is why De Maistre is such a staunch Catholic. He knows how powerful Christianity is in creating the aristocracy he longs for. As in so many things, the key to it all is the Church. If the Church acts properly, it can generate an ideal society--not because it rules directly, as in a theocracy, but because through it, and through its Sacraments, the power of God flows out into men.

>> No.13970033

>The mistakes of divine right have been refuted.

The "Divine Right" was already rejected by catholic monarchist in the 16th century. It was never the main justification or legitimization of the goverment during the period of monarchies. It was mostly used by protestant goverments.

>> No.13970753

good post

the cross existed long before christianity. but you're right that a ratiocinative response isn't sufficient, as little as a reactionary response is cogent.

I don't believe I was talking to you, butterfag. Although we agree on many foundational areas of knowledge (much to my chagrin), I consider you to be a liberal in most of your conclusions.

Nor am I an absolutist; capitalism and liberalism do convey some important advantages. It is the dose that makes the poison.

>> No.13970910

Well said. The devil is of course in the details, however. How might those positive aspects interact and tear at eachother? Might one of those negatives be necessary to preserve a blance of more positives? How do we prevent the complacent apathy that infects a population when times are good?

It's a good guiding ideal, but the steps we take towards it may have to be brutally pragmatic.

As I've delved more into right-wing, reactionary thought, one of the most persuasive things I've come across, and a thing I've come to believe myself, is that aristocracy of some kind seems to be inevitable. No matter what we try, no matter how many revolutions we wage or social programs we attempt, we always seem to come back to a small amount of people wielding most of society's power and wealth. If they're not an official aristocracy, then they function as one regardless. In fact, de facto aristocracies seem to be worse than de jure aristocracies; at least the aristocracies with actual law and custom behind them have an officially recognized function in society, and have to abide by certain rules and norms. Unofficial aristocracies get to have all the perks of an aristocracy without any of the responsibilities that come with it.

So one of the strongest lessons we might take from the reactionaries is that you need to establish a legal aristocracy and maintain it--or else you'll wind up with an illegal aristocracy that cares for nothing but itself.
