Enclavism is a new form of government that our community is currently building. We’re continuing to crowdfund the community for it. If you’re interested, send me a PM on SubscribeStar. I’m also writing a book on it.
Today I wanted to do a quick article with an overview of Enclavism for those who want to learn the basics, prior to the main release.
We’ll go over the goal(s) of Enclavism and how we intend to reach them.
Goals of Enclavism
The goal of Enclavism is simple:
- We want to create the essential tenants of an alternative government form that is resistant to anacyclosis.
We need a new government form that addresses the issues leading to the cycle of collapse.
Obviously, we can’t create an entirely new government form and address all of its possible future problems and intricacies. So instead, our goal is to create a working, practical framework for a government designed to withstand the test of time.
We don’t believe any of the current government forms can accomplish this . So, we need a new one. If the other forms of government (capitalism, socialism, communism, etc) all work and collapse in a cyclical manner, there is no reason to support any single one of them. Your contributions, at most, could only delay the cycle.
We believe that the singular government styles, lackluster communities, and degenerative culture are the pinnacle reasons for the collapse, depending on the government type. So do the ancient philosophers Plato, Aristotle, and Polybius (whom originally coined the name “anacyclosis”).
Because of these three issues, we formalized the name “Enclavism”. This is because our government deals with “enclaves”. IE: Areas independent of their immediate surroundings. We interpret this as a local region with free community and cultural traditions.
The enclaves, along with other changes to the modern forms, will help address the cycle of collapse. Thus completing the goal of Enclavism.
How We Will Reach This Goal
Enclavism reaches this goal by controlling the downfalls of each other government form, thereby addressing the root causes of the cycle.
We can take the best of all the modern forms of government. Leave out the garbage that leads to decline.
There are very specific reasons why the cycle affects each modern form of government. Some are obvious; some not so much. If we address each version of these reasons in every government form, we could become cycle-proof.
We’ve addressed the issues of democracy many times . We’ve addressed the issues of socialism too many times . Same goes for communism (which is just a form of totalitarianism rather indistinguishable from fascism, dictatorship, etc) . We reach the goal by fixing these problems. We fix them through certain principle steps.
The Principle Steps
We have a lot in the making with Enclavism. It’s hard to round it down to a few key elements, but I’ll try here.
The main components include:
- Instigate reasonable culture
- Ensure accountability
- Eliminate elitism
- Encourage community formation
- Remove degeneracy
- Protect freedom
- Chain capitalism
- Incentivize unification
- Restructure government
- Remove problem politicians
- Provide checks and balances
Let’s break each of these down.
Culture drives politics. The cultural swing in the US is what directly preceded the political shifts we are seeing now (more far left and more far right). We must stabilize culture and cultural parameters in any country that is to be immune to the cycle. Degenerative culture will naturally provoke decline.
This isn’t to say that culture can’t change or evolve, but the people who “direct” the culture must at least be held accountable to the nation. In modern republic societies, this doesn’t happen. The chosen ones who determine culture are accountable to none.
Any large business, influencer, cultural marker, or politician must be held accountable. Currently, we aren’t able to control the majority of these… at all. Sometimes, we can barely hold politicians accountable.
The people in charge of different areas of society exert tremendous short-term and long-term influence on the nation. As they degenerate, they bring us all down with them. Why do unelected, greedy individuals (Hollywood) get to direct our culture, laws, and business? We can’t do anything to stop them under democratic or socialistic nations. Under authoritarian regimes they just replace them.
Instead, we need to ensure these groups are held accountable to the public. No more free rein. If they can exert as much power as our politicians, we should hold them to the same accountability standards. Our justification requires this.
Cultural elites have tremendous power. Financial elites have power that most politicians will never match in their decade-long careers. Information elites hold power over our beliefs, income, and sources.
Yet, none of these groups are accountable to anyone. They have tremendous financial, cultural, distributary, and network power but no real oversight.
No society can survive when elites are present. Eventually, oligarchs or aristocrats form. Hatred and resentment grows. Moreover, the resentment grows justifiably.
We need a system where elites are not allowed free rein. Together, we will hold these individuals and organizations accountable for the actions they commit to the nation and to the world. We will also remove most of them from their positions of un-hinged, un-elected, and un-accountable positions of power.
Every single great society was built around the idea of community. The Roman Republic was not founded by large swaths of diverse groups. Instead, it formed from independent, culturally different, local communities uniting with one another.
Under nearly every modern day system we have an awkward top-down approach. Our unity is supposed to come from the top. We need to invert this. Community is what drives unification. And we barely know our own neighbors now.
People and society work better when we think of our local communities first. When we have communities that we believe in. With people that we want to form a community with. Right now, we forcibly live in cities for a job or in the suburbs because of financial cost. When we should live with our own community; our own “tribe”.
There is a lack of community in every modern Western nation. We must address this. Enclavism does this by bringing the focus back on choosing and supporting your own community. The best way to help the nation is to help your own (chosen) local area, driving growth all the way to the top instead of the top down. Currently, we segregate living areas based on financials (can you afford to live there?) instead of segregating living areas based on communal desire. We aim to fix that.
Degeneration and decadence can bring down even the strongest of nations. Once degeneracy hits a country, there is relatively no return to the previous normalcy. It can either stagnant there or get worse.
Us here in the Western world have reached the peak. The depravity won’t be getting better from here on out. It’s either a change to a government form resistant to the effects of degeneracy (through the cultural methods we mentioned above) or the eventual depravity descent to a worse form of government.
Protection of Freedom
With these changes in mind, we also have to protect important freedoms. There a lot of freedoms in many countries around the world that we take for granted. Freedoms that aren’t offered in places like totalitarian China.
We must protect these liberties. Historically, the best method for this kind of protection is through a constitution. Both federal and state. We want to keep and expand the level of protections offered by the constitutions. We also want to place the opportunity for freedom into the hands of the local communities, instead of the government itself.
Capitalism has offered tremendous growth and poverty alleviation for every single person worldwide. We can’t develop an economic structure better than it. Socialism is just garbage.
However, it is unchained. Monopolies, elites, and a nation run by capital is not the intention of a capitalistic system.
Capitalism needs to stay in the economy, not in the politics. We want the economic benefits of capitalism without the political elite and business control. Let them operate efficiently, but let’s remove their un-accountable, un-elected, and solely profit-driven nature.
Nearly every form of government risks internal collapse. This is from the fall of the nation because of internal conflict. We’re on that path due to the nature of the two-party system and other in-fighting between people that should be on the same team.
A prime aim of Enclavism is the focus on unification. Tactics, strategies, and policies to unite groups of very different mindsets and beliefs. We intend to do this through placing a more serious effort on community structures and cultural norms. Focus on your own community instead of trying to force your beliefs on everyone else. While simultaneously stabilizing everyone under a similar culture.
We need a better government distribution. Not necessarily smaller, but more dispersed. We need the bottom-up approach.
The government should look and operate like a pyramid. Most of the action and people on the lower (local) levels with fewer on the state and even fewer at the federal. Right now, in the US we have the opposite of this. Most of the government is at the federal level. The pyramid is upside down.
We need to have a process for politicians to go up through the ladder of government instead of pay their way directly to the top. Also, we need to have laws move up from local communities, instead of the federal government deciding everything, for everyone. This high level approach is risking the entire fiscal health of a country on singular federal policies.
Instead, let’s let the communities decide. If it works at the lower levels, it will naturally keep spreading and growing. If it doesn’t, let it fail. One community failure is a lot easier to handle than the likes of entire countries failing from a single forced federal policy.
This is also the killer of authoritarian regimes. One bad policy and you get Mao’s great famine which killed hundreds of millions. We need to test any new policy, belief, or procedure on the low levels first. We intend to provide this “sandbox” and “bottom-up” approach in Enclavism.
Let’s discuss voting while we’re on the topic of authoritarian regimes. The risk in any government is the possibility of a centralized control under the hands of one or the hands of a few.
We need to ensure this possibility is as far eliminated as possible. We intend to do this through constitutional protections, unified communities, and direct voting on every accountable position.
Keep the high-level leaders directly accountable to ensure we prevent tyranny and revolution.
Checks and Balances
Every form of government needs another to balance it. Proper checks and balances ensures tyrants aren’t able to seize control.
The main balance is not another form of government but the citizenry themselves. If we elevate them to be the proper checks and balances, we could create the strongest oversight over government possible. This isn’t to say governmental structures shouldn’t also provide a balance, but it doesn’t have to be the only one.
Wrap-Up: Overview of Enclavism
All of the above comes from the recommendations of ancient philosophers, the study of governmental forms, and millenniums of governmental histories. Let’s make an entirely new government that can withstand the cycle’s effects. It all starts here.
Make note: We’re still developing this idea. You can swing by SubscribeStar to send me your thoughts. Especially if you like the idea and want to help build it.
