Not to be confused with Agorism.

Agrarianism is a political ideology distinguished by a support of a farming-based society.

Economically agrarianism is generally ambiguous although most agrarians favor subsidization and land rights, culturally agrarianism is also ambiguous but tends to be right-wing as a rural lifestyle is more dependent on inheritance as compared to an urban one, and civically agrarians tend to oppose centralization, but otherwise is ambiguous.

There was no large-scale political movement in the history of Agrarianism. But with the gradual urbanization of people's lives, there are many people with more primitive ideas who want to return to the farmland. Of course, they do not really believe in Agrarianism. Unfortunately, there is not much land for free cultivation, especially in socialist countries like China. If you farm freely in China, you may be punished.



Agrarianism believes that urban living is inferior to living in the countryside and thus wishes for more or even all people to live on rural estates.

Agrarian Liberalism

Liberal agrarianism is a variant of agrarianism that adheres to the principles of agrarianism, such as: subsidies to agriculture, and liberalism: public freedom, free press

Nordic Agrarianism

Nordic Agrarianism is a variant of Agrarianism specific to Nordic countries and is usually positionined in the center of the political spectrum.

The parties that follow this ideology are non-Socialist and typically combine a commitment to small businesses, rural issues and political decentralization, and, at times, Euroscepticism. The parties have divergent views on the free market and environmentalism.

Eastern Agrarianism

In East Asia, independent origin of agriculture was about ten thousand years ago in central China. The most specific character of Eastern agriculture is original rice planting in water. Rice was highest yield crop at that time, which can feed more people than other part of world.

Therefore, there are many agricultural ethnicities in Eastern Asia, whose traditional cultrue is mostly centered around agriculture. So the first ideology like Agrarianism is proposed in China. It is called School of Agricultre, Agricultrism or NongJia, which is proposed by Xu Xing (about 372-289 BCE) in the State of Chu during the Warring States period. And agriculture-first ideologies almost dominated throughout history.


Agrarian will usually be presented as a stereotypical rural farmer, meaning hating city-slickers, knowing everyone within its village and being rather defensive of its farming estate. He may or may not be portrayed as a stereotypical hick.

How to Draw
