Jeder Tritt ein Britt! True British Constitution
I am by no means an Anglophobe. Well, I am not even a Britophobe, remembering that the very concept of political Great Britain was invented to strengthen the power of otherwise sympathetic to me rulers from the Scottish Stuart dynasty. In addition, since the first time thirty-odd years ago when my foot first stepped in the UK, through my school episode there, to frequent returns - I admit to like almost everything that comes from England, Wales, and especially Scotland of course, including the language(s), cuisine, alcohol, traditional style of clothing, interior and interior design, sense of humour and, of course, a school of political thinking and the legal system, in my humble opinion in many practical respects is much more effective than the continental one.
Mrs. Bucket's System
But recognising all undisputable UK achievements – what never ceases to amaze me that is this strange mixture of fascination and irrational sympathy of many not only Europeans for England, and especially for the English ruling classes. The same ones which sometimes have a little consideration for (some) Germans, keeping factual self-interest attitude (combined with a wee bit of superiority) for the Americans, and having the rest of the World in unanimous contempt, beyond the point of disregard, because of other nations' nothingness. Just as it is impossible to underestimate the English and then British successes – as they have never aroused any sympathy, neither they have been calculated on gaining it. - Everyone should just do own part – this so exciting Duke of Wellington’s Waterloo order describes the most precisely this acknowledged uniqueness of the British system and the most appropriate attitude towards it from outside.
As for the socio-organizational issues themselves, even more than the systemic ones, for Centuries the political system of Britain looked like this: The Monarchy and Aristocracy focused on themselves the interest and complexes of the Middle Class, all Buckets of the World. At the same time, the Church of England was watching over the obedience of the poor and the working class. And real rule and business took place outside or behind this quasi-monarchical and pseudo-religious circus.
And thanks to this, after the times of Oliver Cromwell, and in practice especially after The Glorious Revolution (1688) - the ruling class of England no longer had to reveal itself, ruling from behind weak, figurative Kings and the Prime Ministers pushed to the first row to have all the attendance’s attention. The recent death of Philip Battenberg (‘Duke of Edinburgh’) only reminded us of this utilitarian role for the British so called ruling house. At the same time, Prince Philip himself, which is always worth remembering - with the cloak of clumsy arrogance simply covered his leading, or at least a representative role in initiatives that only after half a century revealed their civilization dimension in full. Put simply, by focusing on the aristocrat's rudeness, we have not seen him advocate for early Climatism, depopulation, and a new oligarchic stratification on a global scale.
Mrs. Windsor's System
By the way, it is worth mentioning some curiosity related to the intersection of the issues of the British system that interest us, the position of the House Battenberg-Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and the Climatism. Widely regarded as the “invisible” system of the unwritten constitution of the UK - in fact still maintains the legislative brakes pushed by the tenants of Buckingham Palace. A few months after The Guardian took up the matter of the British Government consulting the bills with the Royals before even formally reporting to the Parliament - a similar practice was revealed in Scotland. In the previous parliamentary term, governing the autonomy of the Scottish National Party, negotiating the support of the local Greens (otherwise pro-independence and strongly anti-monarchist), proposed the introduction of regulations forcing landowners to sell or lease land necessary for the implementation of transmission installations from renewable energy sources (windmills and solar farms). The largest landowners in Scotland are the Crown and Elizabeth II personally. And it turned out that the Scottish Government, which did not avoid republicanism, agreed to introduce amendments before the parliamentary proceedings, releasing only the property of the present Monarch from the new servitude. Let us emphasize - Elizabeth neither blocked this, although she could inherently infringe the foundation of property rights, nor arranged for dismissals for her fellow aristocrats, but she only stamped on the benefit of her personal property. Let us emphasize - Elizabeth neither blocked (although she could) this bill (in essence violating the sanctity of property rule), nor arranged for any dismissals for her fellow aristocrats, but acted only in favour of her personal property. The Government of autonomy was then forced to admit that it was “to ensure the smooth pass the new law”. So, before someone joyfully and thoughtlessly writes something about “kings who reign, but do not rule” - let better check what those sweet celebrities really do, what they possess and what they use it for...
This involvement of the British ruling class in the expansion of the Climatism (but only in cases where it does not violate even the smallest detail of the interests of the members of this elite) only confirms the continuity of this doctrine with the broadly understood liberalism, i.e. the basic export material of Britain for centuries. Without remembering that it was not the USA that invented global Imperialism in the form of spreading its own system everywhere - it is also impossible to understand the specificity of the British system. That was the method used by London / the City to neutralise French competition in Europe during the Great Revolution (1789), and that how Brits ultimately geopolitically disintegrated Hispanidad (1810-1826). Interestingly, however, a similar attempt against Russia, in the form of the February Revolution (1917) was blocked by the Bolsheviks, acting in the role of a not fully realised Katehon. Then the parasite rolling Old England began to move across the Atlantic, taking the form of Demo-Liberalism and then Neo-Conservatism, but in essence remaining the same tapeworm that had settled in London at least since the Battle of Bosworth (1496)….
And this is by no means an issue irrelevant to, especially Central Europeans suffering from their complex of Anglophilia, because the countries of this part of the World, although in principle less than indifferent to Albion, were somewhere on the margins of City's interests for two reasons only: geopolitics / geoeconomics and the ideology used to protect geopolitical and geoeconomical interests.
Central Europe, the Balkans, the Levant - and British Interests
Considering this, as a Pole, I must dispassionately note that the geopolitical interests of England first, and then of Britain since the Fifteenth / Sixteenth Century have been only contrary to the interests of Poland, as well as of emerging then Russia and other European Eastern and Southern countries and nations. With no emotions or feelings - it was just the way it has been and still it is. Beginning in the 15th Century, England started to treat Muscovy as its sphere of influence, considering it profitable to gain footholds in the East and participate in profitable trade (then mainly of fur) with prospects for development as far as hen, towards the Asian steppes and Siberia Hence the contradiction of English, and then British, Polish, Turkish and, with time, Russian interests that lasted for the next three Centuries. The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth has been treated a problem, for example, by competing with Moscow for Livonia, i.e. access to the Baltic ports, and periodically engaging in the competition for influence in the East. In a word – disturbing. Thus, the English pragmatically tried to remove the Polish obstacle several times, e.g. as part of his other, much broader project: weaving his own network of the hidden International, first Protestant, and then Liberal, which did not even need specific English prompts to correctly consider the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth as the weakest link in the camp of Catholic / Conservative states (treated as a natural opponent). Characteristically, such actions were undertaken by both Elizabeth I (1588-1603) and James VI (1603-1625), and especially Cromwell (1647-1658) in the improved version. It is also one of the most important elements of the British / British system - the invariability of the perception of the geopolitical / geo-economic interests of the ruling class, regardless of the current gradation of goals and tactical nuances, not to mention the differences in internal politics, totally unimportant in such comparison.
As we know, after less successful attempts, such as the Swedish Deluge (1655-1660), British policy towards the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth finally triumphed during the Partitions of Poland (1772, 1793, 1795), of which London was a p perpetrator at least complementary to Berlin. However, what is important - it was then that another important geopolitical element emerged with clarity, namely the growing contradiction between British and Russian interests. Of course, it was already immanent because of the inferiority of the Russian component, but then it was noticed by the interested side itself. Or at least those of them who, to this day, are otherwise considered fools and madmen... Indeed, the first Russian leader to try to limit the influence of London was Peter III, and then especially his son, Emperor Paul. Of course, the absolutely fundamental, existential British-Russian contradiction emerged with Russia's accession to the Eurasian position and, more importantly, with the mutual self-realisation of the implications of this fact.
Equally, the opposition between European and British interests in connection with the global export of liberal ideology by London has not weakened in any way. Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Turkish 19th Century - these are the great struggles of Traditionalist Conservatism with cosmopolitan in its very essence, though formally then British, and today American Liberalism, desiring all these states and nations rather annihilated than Conservative.
Gott strafe England
As we can see, then, the entire political system of Britain consists of both its formal and legal side (with not entirely a façade usurper Monarchy and a characteristic form of Parliamentarism), especially a very specific and conscious class interest and ideological factors serving it (formerly in the form of Liberalism together with liberal imitation of Conservatism, more often today as different incarnations of Progressive Liberalism, including the Climatism) and, of course, geopolitical and geoeconomics factors as well. All this together and inextricably constitutes political, political and social Britishness, whatg should be both informative and warning for the whole World. We know that even today, when is in much less exposed position than its former American colony – this is Britain for several hundred years being a carrier of the financial parasite, a tapeworm that is the main engine of Globalism, complemented by all scandalous phenomena of Progressivism of the Western World. So, we should also understand that in the realities of the triumph of Globalism, this finale, there is no place for any nation-states at all. Neither for any national interests. Because the next step just must be to get rid of the states-level at all and move to direct corporate and financial World Governance, with tools like the Climatism, COVIDianism, Genderism and whatever else will be invented
Although at the same time we also have no grounds to reject a priori the most improbable scenario - geopolitical and ideological Apocatastasis. Because as St. Martin said that even Satan could be saved if he regretted his sins - so even America and England, becoming normal states again, perhaps would deserve and would become worthy of (not only geopolitical) salvation. Although that is and probably will never be the course of events that belongs to our World...
