The United States is considered hostile to Royalty. So, then, what role would the Secret Society of Jacobites have for America? On the surface, there is none.
But consider what the Freemasons did as our founding Fathers who started our democracy and Constitutional government. Democracy as a concept came from Tocqueville. The concept of the Constitution had been around for centuries. What then made America great? Was it the Boston Tea Party? White Protestants gathered together dressed up like “Injuns” who tossed over Tea into the Boston harbor in protest of taxes they had to pay to the King of England? That alone was truly the nidus for the American Revolution? Or was it more complicated than that? Perhaps it was a revolt against the Roman Catholic Church for being too strict in its never ending quest to eradicate sin through its Inquisition? Perhaps they felt insulted that many of them had to flee the Old World for the sake of their safety. Perhaps they did not conform well with the culture of Christianity at the time? Perhaps they were poor and resented the rich who included the Church, Nobility, and Royalty? Perhaps the Capetian Kings were tyrants?
When one steps back and strips away all the appearances, then when one sees a “king,” one sees a selfish dude who has it all. He gets to tell people what to do, and they do it. He is the CEO of the world, so to speak. But when one stops to consider that Kings were Founding Fathers of Nations around the world, one begins to comprehend a greater picture.
There is power play and there are blood feuds. People watch from the outside looking in and wonder about all the glam and elegance that maybe took place at Versailles, but if it came down to a person, and if that one person dared to take care of many families, and that one person shouldered their concerns and cares and decided to take care of the many, then if that person formed a national family, then that person should be made King.
Jacob did it in Israel. God told him to start a nation beginning with his family. He thus became the Patriarch of the nation state that bears his name, Israel.
Charlemagne did the same thing in France. He started with his own family, decided to gather a people, call them family, and take care of them. For this amazing feat of organization and Paternalism, he was revered even to this day as the Founder of France itself. He formed a culture and over time, that created a heritage of love. Saints grew up within his Kingdom. Miracles were wrought to heal the sick and help the lame. France perfected itself in becoming known internationally and globally as one of the most romantic cultures in the world. French as a language became known as a romance language because he, their King, their inspiration, their leader took Christianity to completion. God is love, then we must become lovers as a family. And so, he became its national Father, the King of France.
People do not give anyone power nor authority easily nor willingly unless they have good reason. Charlemagne conquered many peoples and lands and staked out his borders for his family to live and prosper before his God. No one in their right mind would pay taxes to anyone unless, they received a benefit perhaps equal or greater in worth and value to them, in exchange for taxes. So, with some organizational foresight, Charlemagne was able to take many a people under his “wing” and took care of them in exchange for taxes to continue to take care of them. This then gave rise to the system of government, or the Monarchical governing system that is so misunderstood and feared today.
Why is he King, the peasants complained after a while. Why is that family so rich, they whined after a while? Why don’t we revolt, kill him and maybe the land can be ours, they rebelled. But maybe there is a good reason, and it can all be explained in a non-militant coup that took place years after Charlemagne’s death by Robert and Hugh Capet. Rogues rose up in envy and conspired and took the Throne of France. They usurped power from Charles the Simple, the rightful heir to the Throne of the nation founded by his Father Charlemagne. So, in essence, Hugh Capet robbed France of its Founding Father. In the place of a Father, the family now had a power hungry devil, who wanted all the power, money, and pride, at the expense of the good people of France. And so, the murmuring started, and was likely justified in the French Revolution years later.
The French Revolution, I argue, was not an act of true Patricide because Capet was not their Founding Father. He did not have the true Paternalistic attitude of care taking for his family. Instead, the Capetian Kings had the attitude of comfortably raping the French poor for their own fame and fortune. They, in effect, became the tyrants that Charlemagne had defended the Franks against. In effect, over time, the very barbarians and rogues that Charlemagne had protected the Franks from, had somehow usurped the throne to the very country he had founded and swore to protect by God. Their King had now had become replaced by a dictator. And over time, the love was lost, and the proletariats came to resent the Bourbon kings and killed the bourgeoisie, corrupt clergy, and sinful Royalty.
After years of societal moral decay, France dipped into a cultural war that exists even unto today. They know something grand died in France along with something terrible and they cannot put their fingers on it. They killed their Founding Father along with deposing a tyrant. In that confusion, they lost their faith in God, they lost their culture of romance and love, they lost their etiquette and manners, they lost everything they cherished too, in effect, they lost their Father Charlemagne. And it is in a state of confusion in which the French live now. They have accepted the Moors to live amongst them. In fact, out of anger, the Muslims have infiltrated the Neighborhoods of Charles Martel. Foreigners are beginning to take the high political places in democratic France. The Franks know not who they are any longer. Why? Because they have lost their King.
Is all hope lost? Did the Carolingian line die out because of Hugh Capet? I argue that no, there is hope. As Roman Catholic prophecies foretold, the Carolingian “Scion” or Heir to the Throne still remains extant today. Barely, there exists the glimmer of hope that Charlemagne can still reign and take back France. This slim chance and flickering light of hope must prevail in the nation of France itself. The Secret Society of Jacobites keep this flame going. Charlemagne needs our help in secretly reclaiming his Throne and Seat at the Head of the Table that he founded, made, and loves in the once proud nation of France.
So, then, America. Is there a King of America? George Washington refused the honor. Perhaps he did not deserve the singular recognition? He “humbly refused to be king” so it is taught in our history books. However, in the Battle Hymn of the Republic, it begins as such.
"The Battle Hymn of the Republic" as written by Julia Ward Howe.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword: His truth is marching on.
(Chorus) Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! His truth is marching on.
I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps, They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps; I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps: His day is marching on.
(Chorus) Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! His day is marching on.
I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel: "As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal"; Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel, Since God is marching on.
(Chorus) Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Since God is marching on.
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat; Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! Be jubilant, my feet! Our God is marching on.
(Chorus) Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Our God is marching on.
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me. As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, While God is marching on.
(Chorus) Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! While God is marching on.
He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave, He is Wisdom to the mighty, He is Succour to the brave, So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of Time His slave, Our God is marching on.
(Chorus) Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Our God is marching on!
We in America have a King, same as Charlemagne did. Must we disrespect the eternal Kingdom of God? If in France, Charlemagne is disrespected, we are all disrespected, so help us God. In God we Trust!
Please consider joining the Secret Society of Jacobites.
