Western Preservationism is an economically right-wing, civically liberal to mildly libertarian, and culturally right ideology. Its core principle is the preservation and expansion of all which made the West great, against the forces threatening it from inside and out.

The Role of The State
"But the Managerial State looks at that and goes: 'Right, there might be harm involved in this. I need to impose a law. I need to impose bureaucrats. I need to impose people who will sit there and start getting involved in the relationships between people'. And it's that kind of paradigm where's it's this sort of overarching (I don't want to say like, Big Government because it sounds cliche) but the scope of the state is in everything now, and this I think we see reaching its full... this sort of full blossoming in the COVID crisis, where literally there's nothing outside of the purview of the State now. And I'm genuinely worried about where this paradigm is going, because, I mean, I don't see anything good at the end of it, and I can't see who's happy with the way things are being run at the moment."
I am not a statist. Modern Western governments (especially the more progressive ones such as Canada and Germany) have succumbed to the managerial mindset, one where the power of the State is seen as the perfect problem solver for everything we perceive as being wrong with society, leading to authoritarianism and surveillance. Governments should have the self-control to respect the boundaries of their power, and not intrude too much into civil society. I believe the State should have six roles to play:
- Manage and fund the Justice System and Police.
- Manage and fund the Military, protect the borders and control immigration, and perform international diplomacy.
- Fund scientific discoveries and technological development.
- Enforce measured regulations in the areas of worker rights, consumer rights and environmental protection, and enforce standards on automobiles and airplanes to standardize signals and promote safety.
- Make large scale planning of city organization and architecture and the infrastructure system, though commissioning private companies to do the construction.
- Protect the education system from leftism (as to prevent the suicidal destruction and decline of today to happen again) and passively promote positive culture.
The Separation of Powers
"According to the principle of checks and balances, each of the branches of the state should have the power to limit or check the other two, creating a balance between the three separate powers of the state. Each branch's efforts to prevent either of the other branches becoming supreme form part of an eternal conflict, which leaves the people free from government abuses".Wikipedia
A separation of powers based on the American system seems good enough, though I suggest a few adjustments.
I envision a Constitutional Monarchy combined with a Presidential System, in the same way the Commonwealth nations are Constitutional Monarchies combined with Parliamentary Systems. The Monarch (who could be male or female) would serve as head of state, and the President would be elected through selective suffrage (see respective section) to serve as head of government, and would be seperate from the Legislature, unlike a Prime Minister. State and Municipal executives would also be elected through selective suffrage, and would be fairly independent from the National Government. The Heir Apparent and their near successors would grow up with a strict and extensive education, serving as an example of virtue and knowledge to the public. They would serve as the "Heart" of the State, being Heads of the National Church, Prime Diplomats and Commanders-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, as well as cultural consultants, mostly approving architectural designs and artists for pieces in public spaces. They would also award the best writer, visual artist, musician, architect and scientist in the nation each year, as well as having the authority to Knight extraordinary citizens. The Monarch's most consequential power would be that of vetoing bills passed by the Legislature, though a two-thirds vote in each house of Congress may override the veto, similarly to the veto powers of US Presidents. On the other hand, the Monarch could be "impeached" and automatically replaced by their Heir if two-thirds of Congress agree to submit a complaint, accusing them of committing an infraction pre-determined in the Constitution, and the Judiciary finds the complaint to be valid. In case of presidential absence or incapacity of any sort, the Monarch shall become Acting President and call a new election.
The President would serve most other, more rational roles.
