American Monarchist Society

Origins

The idea [for a monarchist organization] came to me a few years ago, but I couldn’t find serious people at that time. Then, while I was deployed in 2018 to 2019, I began talking about the ideals of monarchy with . . . another soldier. While we listened to a podcast by Mr. Coulombe on monarchy, we discussed looking for like-minded individuals since it seemed that more people were independently coming to the same conclusions as us all over the country.

– Benjamin Williams

The American Monarchist Society began as an idea in the confines of the American military. With all the harmful recrement permitted by the excess of the American Republic, the American solider dared to ask: why can’t government benefit from the efficiency that our leadership needs? 

In a Climate of Polarization

The 2016 presidential election drastically accelerated the political landscape of the United States. The person of Donald Trump had very little to do with actually changing the momentum of things during his election, but the churlish behavior which trademarked his campaign quickened factional divides already threatening the country’s future: left-wing Americans had grown too sure that they had dominated the country after Obama’s progressive presidency. Passive conservative resistance blossomed into new activism as the Oval Office again became available. All in all, immature political behavior pushed the art of politics to a new low. Tolerance decreased, discourse cheapened, and understanding grows darker. Trump’s presidency is marked with the red flags of late-stage democracy.

Since then, socialists came into the open and stole the limelight. The alt-right became a household term and the ever-faithful boogeyman of leftist media. Political riots became normal enough that daily news stopped reporting all but the worst of them. The country is ablaze with controversial topics

But conversely enough, the polarization was monarchy’s golden opportunity. With centrism and compromise off the table, views outside conventional opinions became viable alternatives. And with the public largely passionate about politics again, willing to speak their mind, and willing to act for their beliefs, now became the time to organize for traditional principles.

Today, the American Monarchist Society has grown to include members from 26 states of the Union.

Beginnings

Like many good ideas during the age of computers, the American Monarchist Society began online. The sparse number of traditionalists in the United States makes physical separation an inevitable problem. Social networking was a must for organizing politically. Facebook’s massive membership made it the initial candidate for the job. The first traces of the Society date back to March, 2019, in Benjamin William’s group titled “American Monarchist Congress.” The group is responsible for approximately one hundred of our members, including the current Seneschal. A crude web site was quickly established, and within months, leaders of the newly organized Society were traceling throughout the country to galvinize support and connections. Stops along the way included California, Kansas, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Virginia, and Illinois.
