The Mexican Monarchist

I ran across an interesting article on the conservative politician Lucas Alamán. He wouldn’t be too bad as a ‘good guy’ model of a pro-religion, pro-local, anti-democratic Noble – with some alterations to fit the Hindu or Islamic background of the Empty Quarter, rather than a Catholic one.

Outside of politics…

Alamán was a scientist, innovative mining engineer, writer, historian, and a museum curator. He wrote several volumes on the history of Mexico in which he expounded on the virtues of private property and the pitfalls of democracy. But he didn’t propose a scheme whereby the masses would steal their neighbor’s wealth, so his story is rarely told and he is relegated to the dustbins of history. Oh well.

In reality, Alamán was an also-ran, struggling against the democratic tide… and in the end, failing. But in the Imperium, things would be rather different.

Unfortunately, mass theft would not have ended in Aristocratic Mexico: merely the names and the justifications would have changed.

You need a national redemption, a change of heart among the people, to really get things going upward: and that is primarily a spiritual matter, with politics merely reflecting the better faith, beliefs, and actions of the people.

Getting that done ain’t easy.
