Ask @oygeralt:

How would you feel about a one party state?

Badly. Much to similar to our current situation.
If the exact system that I want could not be realized (a natural order). My compromise is a political system as exists in Liechtenstein.

Is democracy a political system you would prefer to stick with?

Getting rid of democracy before it kills us all is one of the most important things that absolutely NEEDS to happen. Probably isn't possible though, we're operating in a pretty narrow time-frame.

Would you agree that the reason why anti-immigration parties fail is because of the social class of those supporting them?

Partly. The types of people who attend EDL, BNP or PEGIDA marches are not exactly good imaging and prevents a more mainstream appeal.
But I think the system of democracy is a much larger cause. When the elites want things to go a certain way, things are going to go that way so long as the system in which the act is maintained. Popular opinion on specific issues is not that important.

Isn't there an anti-immigration party in Ireland?

Claire Khaw
No. There isn't. Every party is basically the same on the question of immigration (and practically everything else). There are a few attempts like the National Party or Identity Ireland but they are complete shambles right now and may as well be non-existent. Identity Ireland seems to have crumbled into nothing already and I doubt the National Party will last long.
Politics are very socialist leaning here and we haven't had mass-immigration on anything like the scale that other countries have (though we are about to catch up soon) so there is essentially no right-wing here.

Why are you afraid to call yourself a nationalist?

Claire Khaw
I'm not. It's just not my primary label. If it comes up in conversation, I do identify as a nationalist.

How would you label your political beliefs?

Paleolibertarian was a nice label but it's a little out of date. The more descriptive labels are a bit pretentious for my taste.
When I'm talking with normies, I call myself a right-wing (Hoppean) libertarian

Conservatives do not think the world is fair. They already acknowledge that not everyone is equal. Socialists pretend everyone is and try to make it so with high taxes and liberty-destroying laws.

Your opinion of conservatives is too high. Conservatism is a movement of failure and retreat, it is indistinguishable from controlled opposition. It's time to drop the "conservative" label.

That's one way to look at it

Do you think the institutional problems of democracy can be addressed by narrowing the franchise to taxpayers only and having a one party state?

Claire Khaw
I think it would definitely help, but not nearly enough.

Can you explain Brehon law a little?

Claire Khaw
It was essentially the law of the land in Ireland before the English suppressed it and instituted its own common law system. It cannot really be explained in such a short space but I think it provides a good example of how law can function without a state.

What are "the institutional problems" of democracy?

I've already mentioned them in another answer. The nature of appeal to popular vote inevitably leads to the situation that we are now in. There is a reason for the intense decline post-1914, what else could it be other than democracy?

What is it about the political structure of Ireland before the Norman invasion that appeals to you?

Claire Khaw
Brehon law and a strong sense of localism and tribalism.

Most people are stupid. Democracy is just doing what most stupid people want to do. There is nothing clever about doing what most stupid people want. The franchise should therefore be narrowed to taxpayers only.

Claire Khaw
That would be a good first step but most of the institutional problems of democracy would remain.

A king gets his position by conquest and heredity, a dictator gets his position by conquest. One's family is too small a pool of political talent for the nation.

Claire Khaw
Practically the entirety of pre-1914 history contradicts this. There can be good kings and there can be bad kings, but there can only ever be bad democracies.

How realistic is it to aspire to return to "Ireland before the Norman invasion and the European feudal age"?

Claire Khaw
Not very. It's still the best thing for society so I advocate it anyway. Though I think it's less insane than it sounds, I am not advocating a literal return to how life was in those times. Only that we should emulate the political structure. It can be achieved (or at least worked towards) through secession and localism.
I know that it will probably never happen. Monarchy is my compromise.

What are the failings of a multi-party democracy?

Claire Khaw
They are endless. A heightening of the population's time preference, a sapping of public morals and class conciousness, its appeal to egalitarianism, it encourages socialism and the horrible effect that it has on warfare (it causes the emergence of total war).
There is literally nothing good about democracy, which I can't properly elaborate here. I highly recommend Democracy: The God That Failed if you are interested in the topic.

When you talk about a monarchy you mean an absolute monarch, don't you? If so, it means you want a dictator.

Claire Khaw
No it doesn't. A dictatorship and a monarchy are completely different. A dictatorship is only similar to a monarchy superficially, in terms of actual effect it has much more in common with democracy.

Can you give an example of a "stateless natural order"?

Claire Khaw
There have been no perfect examples. Thr closest historical examples that I can think of at the moment would be Ireland before the norman invasion and the European feudal age.

Claire Khaw
A stateless natural order or a monarchy

Would you support a one party state?

Depends on the party and only as a transitionary phase. It still seems that it would have most of thefailings of a multi-party democracy.
