The Republicanism of Minvra: Claiming the Classical Roots of the American Republic—Fascism, a Relative—the Original Red Shirts and Red Hats

Republicanism of MINVRA is not associated with, nor propagandizes for one particular party, nor is it about the U.S. Republican Party, or whatever Party under such name in France, or Italy. Some among us, as well as yourselves, are not yet willing to learn, nor accept this fact, but REPUBLICANISM and FASCISM are relatives, or rather — cousins. I refer to them as such from what I am directly reading from fascist and republican thinkers; and not what some journalist who just looked on an internet dictionary, or took a minute look into The Doctrine of Fascism, or some academic’s critique of The Doctrine of Fascism (Mussolini), or The Philosophic Doctrine of Fascism (Gentile) says. This is not an innovation, spin, trolling, or scheme of mines; nor do I find what I argue to mean a negative thing, or a bad argument that the Left, or the Right are closest to Fascism. These are silly nonsense games and tactics. The political identity of The American Minervan is centered on an over-arching philosophy and way of life, because it is, and was defined by its philosophers and statesmen of classical ages up into the Enlightenment, as a way of life, just as the Fascists argued about the philosophy of Fascism.

Mario Palmieri states in The Philosophy of Fascism on Individualism:

“One invisible tie binds together the destinies of all men. There cannot be any joy or any pain experienced by one single individual, any good or any evil befallen him, which shall not ultimately affect the welfare of the race, the progress of the world, the very course of history.”

“As the fall of a stone in a quiet pool draws at the surface of the water concentric circles, which grow always wider in diameter until they extend to the extreme limits of the pool, thus the consequences of a human deed which seemed at first to affect the life of one man, grow little by little to affect the lives of all men.”

Claude Polin wrote of Democracy and Identity or sense of nationhood, that:

“A Democratic society is a society which contains no real principle of unity. It does not even merit the name of society. In democracy there can be no citizens; there are only private citizens whose occasional civic behavior does not even indicate the will to be citizens.”—Claude Polin.

This is certainly our dilemma. The impression of Ancient Rome and Republicanism is much more heavily imprinted on the American Ideal, more than the Democracy of Athens of Ancient Greece. In relation to this, for Republicanism to be successful, its People must be indissolubly bound in Unity. You think our national mottos are just words? You see what happens, with these modern thinkers, who believe they are progressing doctrine and political thought, and casually blurt out these mottos and words, but fail to replicate and articulate the spirit it expresses? This is why the Alt-Right mocks liberals and conservatives — “Muh Democracy.” In relation to Palmieri’s words, all must be elevating each other, completely, morally, etc. The modernists are all out of ideas, because they only find in the past its horrors; and define the present, nothing by them. The old liberals were not like this.

Alone, do those understand, who understand the concept of Nation, and study and love the noble and austere things of Antiquity. This constituted the spirit of the old liberals, but I digress. I do not write to you today to preach a renaissance of liberalism.

The idea here embraces the entire gamut of the Americas and its peoples, their histories, their aspirations and spirit; and therefore, is not focused on the old concepts of Anglo-America, or merely Euro-centricity, as in the ideas of the Identitarian and Alt-Right ideologue; which alone has only the interests of whites, or people of European descent. However, with that also being said, we reject and resolve any hatred or jealousies toward the various European cultural, linguistic and ethnic elements that largely influenced and shaped the history of the Americas. There must be an attempt at a true psychological and ideological reconciliation, rather than an attempt to erase European influence. The entire history must be embraced and reconsidered. The idea of Western Man, as if time was frozen in the 1800s or the 1950s, as merely the White Man or WASP, is not only outdated, but is not reality, nor has it ever been. The history here, from beginning to the settlers, is a rich history, that could not even be limited to a constructed view of history, as a domination of the white man. The history here was moulded and shaped by various elements and factors, but I digress again. This gets into Theories of History, and how we fundamentally limit our view of the peoples and history here.

Those who view Republicanism as a vague term, have not been introduced to sufficient material to positively conclude this. Everyone refers today to the U.S. as a Democracy, which is an even vaguer term; but many countries call themselves Democratic and Republics. In this country, the United States, no one refers to it, except those in certain arguments, that we are a Republic. They do not even like to use the word, simply because their political opposition are named Republicans. Why must we give preference to “Democracy” alone then? Ideas and facets integral to Republicanism, which have been the focus of all of its thinkers in history into the present-day, include ideas on Equality, Morality, the Organization of Society, Fraternity, Family, Communitarianism and Individualism (it is both), Utopia, Religion (Republicanism can be described as having a Civic Theology), Security (Imperial Expansion as a consequent), Law and Order; and with that an aim to achieve their Balance, and embody Wisdom (in War, Spiritually, in Living and Education). It envisions a nobler, enlightened future Man, or citizen.

There will come a time, when the things I have written will become known as fact; but now, you do not understand as much. I do not underestimate you, but from my view, I think Republicanism, (a) if articulated as it is and can be, from Classical Rome to the Enlightenment, must be revisited; and (b) would be shown to be superior to American progressivism (modern liberalism) and conservatism. Consider all of the historical offshoots, and these modern “Red Shirts.”

Patrons, do we even know the origin of the RED SHIRTS, as known and hated by the American Left in reference to The Republican Party; which for one derives from the RED SHIRT mafia of Italian patriot and comrade of Mazzini – Giuseppe Garibaldi, in whom we admire as part of our heritage here? Do we as a nation seem to know the significance of the symbolic RED HAT (or Phrygian Cap) that represents our NATIONAL PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE and NATIONAL IDENTITY, versus the Red MAGA Hat? I bet some are even saying, that we do not have a national identity. I am not of European-descent, and I am definitely not arguing from the viewpoint of an Identitarian and self-defined Western Chauvinist of the Right. If you are already trying to box us into something you know, you will have failed to understand already, as we are in fieri.

You sit on a gold mine of ideals, philosophy, tradition, heritage, authority, and inspiration, and choose not to use, nor express it; perhaps do not care for it. Therefore, we shall take it as ours, and erect a Tower of Thought, that would prove a worthy competitor. A single, simple, binding idea and philosophy is there . . . and it is magnificent to behold.
