    Qilêansism is the personal worldview of Qilêansi.

    The most fundamental essence of Qilêansism is monarchism or the rule of one man. There are other characteristics of Qilêansism but they are secondary to monarchism.

    The State

    Only Monarchy

    From Qilêansist's perspective, there are only three forms of state or government: The rule of the one, or monarchy; the rule of the few, or oligarchy; and the rule of the many, or democracy. This view is first described in the debate between Darius (monarchy), Megabyzus (oligarchy), and Otanes (democracy) written by Herodotus.[1] There are no other forms of state, no such thing as a fourth state, or even combining the three, which would constitute a mixed state.[2] As such, there is only monarchy. There's no other form of monarchy that includes constitutional monarchy, ceremonial monarchy, feudal monarchy, and so on. Absolute monarchism is just redundant. There's simply monarchy itself and it is the totalizing essence of Qilêansism.

    Plato And Aristotle

    Plato stated that both the political and the economic are not distinct from each other and rather are identical, they are essentially the same.[3] On the contrary, Aristotle sees the political and the economic as in opposition to each other.[4] Qilêansism sided with Plato as opposed to Aristotle. This is because the state must be ordered like a household, which is Plato's view, but Aristotle's view is that it is an error. There are also additional monarchist thinkers such as Robert Filmer,[5] Thomas Hobbes,[6] and Jean Bodin[7] has criticized Aristotle for this particular way of looking at the separation of the political and the economic.

    While Aristotle might have spoken in favourably of monarchy.[8][9][10] However, this does not mean that Aristotle advocates monarchism. He sees the monarchy as one of many estates within the whole political state, and having them simply as "one among equals". As opposed to having the monarch as the sole sovereign and preeminent ruler.[11]

    In essence, in Qilêansism, the state should be the same as that of a household, with no distinction whatsoever, it does not matter whether it is a family, a tribe, a city, a nation, or even an empire. All of this is a tautology of the size of the state.

    Majesty and Fascism

    The fascist view of the state is one thing that Qilêansism is in agreement with. While Qilêansism acknowledges that the leading figure of Fascism, Benito Mussolini, disparages monarchism,[12][13] this does not at all give credence to the concern.

    Ultimately, Qilêansism knew that fascists did not hold monarchism to be supreme. There are, however, certain lines of thought in fascism that are in accordance with the majesty of the sovereign. Firstly, Fascism has a view of the state that Qilêansism fully agrees on.[14][15][16] In it, the fascist state is total sovereignty. This is a view of sovereignty on which Qilêansism is entirely based.

    Against Tocqueville and his Legacy

    Alexis de Tocqueville and his legacy are a contagious pestilence in contemporary monarchist circles. Most especially in his followers such as Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Bertrand de Jouvenel, Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn, and many others. In his work, The Old Regime and the Revolution, he stated: "When a nation abolishes aristocracy, centralization follows as a matter of course."[17]

    Tocqueville and his ilk are apologist of Aristocracy/Oligarchy. Tocquevillism represents a monarchism that is contrary to the monarchical ideal of Qilêansism.[18][19][20] It is for this reason that Qilêansism treats Alexis de Tocqueville as one of its main enemies.

    Against Regicide

    Regicide, no matter how tyrannical or incompetent a monarch might be, is what Qilêansism would never condone. This is first of all because it requires that the monarch be seen as something that is disposable. If the monarch were to be seen as disposable, it would warrant the denial of the pre-eminence of the monarch. As such, regicide is that which would never be condoned in any way, shape, or form, no matter what the circumstances. In addition, this would lead to a slippery slope of the normalization of treasonous and offensive thoughts with regard to the majesty of the sovereign.

    People such as Jean Bodin or[21][22][23][24][25] Aristotle[26] are noted to be truly against regicide.

    Philosophy

    Hylomorphism

    The best view of all of creation is to see both Hyle (matter) and Morphe (form) as being united in what can be called a substantial unity. In the case of the human being, the body is hyle and the soul is morphe. It does not see both as completely different things that are superficially connected, but rather as that which is united. That is, a human being isn't just a spiritual or material being. It is rather the case that both the body and the soul are united of one.

    This obviously means rejecting idealism, which means saying that only Form exists. It is also a rejection of materialism, which is to say that it is only matter that exists. The rejection of both views does not mean that it also follows substance dualism, but it also rejects it. Substance dualism means that form can exist independently of the matter with which it is substantially united according to the view of hylomorphism.

    Friends

    • Monarchism - Let one man rule.
    • Absolute Monarchism - A bit of redundancy but you truly represent my core beliefs.
    • Enlightened Absolutism - One man to enligthen the household.
    • Autocracy - Of course, Nec Pluribus Impar.
    • Fascism - Your views are quite similar to what I view of the state. Despite your later disapproval of the monarchy, you are not as bad as your German contemporary.
    • Juche - You have embraced the Monarchist Ideal to its fullest.

    Neutral

    • Neoreactionaryism - I find your advocacy of monarchism admirable. But to allow people like Jouvenel and Hoppe to influence us would be disastrous.
    • Constitutional Monarchism - Monarchs are meant to be rulers, yes. But you're trying to create a mixed State, which is utterly absurd. Not only is that nonsense, but you reject the pre-eminence of the monarch.
    • Aristocracy - I have no objection to the rule of the best. You are only a problem when you are in charge of the state itself.
    • Technocracy - Of course, science and technology should inform both the government and the state. But your form of state is an oligarchy, not a monarchy. Appropriately, you technocrats should be under the pre-eminent sovereign, not an equal.
    • Nazism - The principle of the Führerprinzip is commendable. Not to mention, your critique of parliamentarism and constitutionalism is splendid. But your strong rejection of the dynastic fervor is not a favorable one. I do appreciate that you like HRE Joseph II, an adherent of absolutism.

    Enemies

    • Democracy - The many are not meant to rule.
    • Oligarchy - The few are not meant to rule, either.
    • Constitutionalism - It is foolish to reject the pre-eminence of one person.
    • Feudalism - There would be no rule by many petty lords. There should be only a single, pre-eminent monarch.
    • HREism - You are not truly a monarchy but rather a pure oligarchy. Only when the monarch has taken the path of absolutism are you the best.
