Around 1900 the meaning of Right Wing changed, before that time it meant that you supported the traditional way of life and the traditional form of government. After that time it came to mean that you did not support Socialism. That view has over time lead to some strange ideas on the Right, ideas that were once rejected outright.
Traditionalists are not Socialists, we do not believe in the government controlling the economy. But we oppose a lot more than just Socialism. Including when it comes to the economy. We also do not support Capitalism as it is Liberalism by another name. What we do support is as many people as possible having a stake in the economy. That means that we want as many economic enterprises to be owned by someone, instead of them being owned by faceless forces that we do not know or understand. For example every supermarket should be owned by someone, not like today were they are owned by a faceless and remote corporation.
We want local ownership, were the owner lives near the enterprise that they own. Not globalism or even regionalism, but localism. Each local economy fuelling it's own local community, That each local economy feeds into the bigger economy. That decision making come from the local area in most cases and that top down decisions are minimised. In that way we can get back to the organic economy. An economic system that arises from local concerns.
There are those who will argue that that might be fine for retail or other such concerns, but what about manufacturing or mining?
Even in these areas the aim should be to support the local over anything else. But it is a valid concern that expertise cannot in all cases be supplied locally. Of course the practical also has a place in the organic economy. And while we do not want the big to dominate there are some areas of the economy were big is really the only option. When that is the only realistic option then of course we should accept that and fit that it. But at all times it must be understood that it is an exception. Unlike today when it is the rule.
The aim of the organic economy should be twofold 1) the creation of wealth and 2) full male employment.
Today we are increasingly living in an artificial economy, one created from above without our knowledge or consent. Without our concerns being a concern and that, needs to change!
