It is on this day – when the King in Council has promulgated parliamentarism as a part of the written Constitution of the Kingdom of Norway – that this blog is launched. An article on this constitutional amendment will follow shortly.
This blog will be dedicated to countering democratic modernism. It is an unashamed monarchist blog. It deplores World War I, and it deplores the Allied victory in World War I.
We recall what Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn told us:
For the average person, all problems date to World War II; for the more informed, to World War I; for the genuine historian, to the French Revolution.The intelligent reader might then ask why not the blog name refers to the French Revolution instead of Woodrow Wilson's gruesome deed. And if World War I finished off the old order, shouldn't we blame the old order that started it – not an American executive who brought his country into the war at a late stage?
The short answer is that Woodrow Wilson finished the old order off. So he gets the "honor" of having his name connected with the name of this blog. The blog will, however, defend the Old European Order as such. It will not exclusively be concerned with Woodrow Wilson. Such Wilson Era things as the introduction of fiat money and directly elected U.S. Senators are not exactly adored in this blog, and such issues will be touched.
The long answer is one of the things that will come through this blog with time.
The icon of this blog is Lieutenant-Colonel Strutt. He was sent on the personal initiative of His Britannic Majesty George V to protect His Imperial and Royal Majesty Emperor and King Karl and the Austro-Hungarian Imperial and Royal family during internal exile. Strutt was a partisan of the Old European Order, and he saw to it that the Emperor did not have to abdicate in exchange for safety. We will get back to Strutt in the future.
