"He that denies any of the doctrines that Christ has delivered, to be true, denies him to be sent from God, and consequently to be the Messiah; and so ceases to be a Christian."
Christian Democracy is an economically centre-left to centre-right (largely depending on his opposition), moderately authoritarian and culturally centre-left to right-wing ideology, born out of an affair between Christian Theocracy and Liberal Democracy.
Christian Democracy's beliefs largely vary from country to country, and unlike his father he isn't necessarily Catholic. What usually stays consistent is the belief that the state that works within a democratic framework should enforce traditional values of the church.
Christian Democracy can be traced back to the philosophical views of Thomas Aquinas and his thoughts on Christian tradition. According to Aquinas, human rights are based on natural law and are defined as things that humans would need to survive. For example, food is a natural right because without it a human cannot function.
Christian Democracy began to gain more prominence after the French Revolution where French Republicanism and the Catholic Church were hostile towards one another. The Catholic Church was initially against liberalism, capitalism, and democracy, as they saw them as destructive towards the traditional family lifestyle, promoting selfishness, and allowing permissive and self-indulgent behavior to thrive.
During the latter half of the 19th century, there were many Catholic political movements which encouraged the Catholic Church to become more involved in modern politics. Many of these movements were united in their opposition to liberal secularism, civil marriage, public education, and separation of church and state. These groups were not entirely against democracy however as they saw democracy as being a politically expedient tool rather than being the best political system. Similar movements were being founded in Protestant countries by more conservative Protestants in reaction to secularization.
After World War II, many Protestant and Catholic political activists helped rebuild Western Europe and established democracy in the war-torn continent. Christian Democracy was favored by many because it was seen as a politically neutral and unifying movement separate from destructive Fascism or chaotic Communism. Christian Democracy was particularly successful in West Germany, where many had come to detest Adolf Hitler's regime for its authoritarianism and promotion of paganism (by numerous factions).
Christian Democracy has been embraced by many Catholics in Europe and Latin America as well as by some Protestant and Orthodox Christians. While some Christian Democrat parties have become more secular in recent years, many still support intermediary organizations that can operate between the state and the individual. It is common for Christian Democrat parties to support church-operated schools, hospitals, charities and social insurance funds, usually having payroll taxes or social welfare funding these institutions. They may also support their own labor unions that are organized in their own Christian trade unions separate from their own socialist counterparts.
Kanye Westism is based on the political beliefs of rapper, producer, and 2020 Presidential candidate, Kanye West. West initially announced he would run for President at the 2015 VMAs. In November 2016, West announced he was a supporter of the new President-Elect Donald Trump and met him a month later. In 2018 West had befriended pro-Trump, Alt-Lite political commentator Candace Owens. West also stated his presidential run would be a mix of "the Trump campaign and maybe the Bernie Sanders principles".
West ran on a Progressive Conservative platform advocating Eco-Conservatism, Fiscal Conservatism, supporting the arts and faith-based organizations, prison reform, and ending police brutality. In June 2020 West participated in the George Floyd protests and donated $2 million to victims of the rioting. West cited the fictional country of Wakanda as a model on which he wanted to base his government, which meant that he wanted to be advised by Technocratic experts on scientific issues. West was staunchly anti-abortion going as far as proposing to offer $1 million to mothers who would choose not to abort their children.
In 2022 West made multiple Anti-Semitic statements saying he was "going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE". These statements caused West to lose many sponsors, most notably Adidas. West also faced backlash for appearing at a dinner with Donald Trump and Nick Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago where he apparently asked Trump to be his running mate in 2024. Later on The Alex Jones Show, West stated how he loved Adolf Hitler.
Christian Social Democracy, is a form of Christian Democracy that is center-left in its economics like Social Democracy, culturally center-right, and civically moderate. It differs itself from center-right neoliberalism that is often practiced by this ideology with its support for economic distributionism (depends, not always), a mixed/social market economy, and a welfare state justified under the teachings of Christian theology.
American Solidarianism, formerly known as the Christian Democratic Party, is an economically center-left to left-wing, culturally center-right political party in the United States. It's motto is "Common Good, Common Ground, Common Sense".
The American Solidarity Party has been characterized as socially conservative while supporting fiscally progressive economic policies. The ASP encourages social development along the lines of subsidiarity and sphere sovereignty, with a stated emphasis on "the importance of strong families, local communities, and voluntary associations". It favors fiscally progressive policies and a social market economy with a distributist character and providing a social safety net program.
The American Solidarity Party largely adheres to the ideology of Christian democracy, which has been influenced by Catholic social teaching, Neo-Calvinist theology and the social teachings espoused by other traditions of Christianity in various parts of the world. As such, the ASP looks to the Christian democratic movements in Europe and the Americas.
Socially, the party opposes pornography and prostitution, euthanasia, abortion, capital punishment, same-sex marriage, and other things that are deemed to be detrimental to the basis of the sanctity of human life. It views family as being central to society. On foreign matters, it is non-interventionist, favoring peaceful diplomacy as a guiding principle. It supports fair-trade, foreign aid, and opposing violent military action. Economically, the ASP supports a universal healthcare system, as well as an economy containing widespread distribution of productive property, in particular increased worker ownership and management of their production.
Christian Democratic Unionism, clipped with the CDU, is a Christian-democratic and liberal-conservative political party in Germany. It is the major catch-all party of the center-right in the German politics. It is culturally and economically center-right, statist, and diplomatically globalist.
Gremialismo, or Guildism, is a religious, conservative, and social ideology based on the social doctrine of the Church, neoconservatism, anti-communism and Catholic nationalism that calls for the depoliticization of intermediate bodies, being against which political parties or political ideas enter civil society.
In Chile, guildism was the doctrinal support of the conservative movement, born in the second half of the 1960s, which led the opposition to the university reform promoted by the centrist groups like DCU and JCU.
It was founded in 1967 as a university movement within the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile - the Trade Union Movement of the Catholic University of Chile (MGUC) - by the conservative liberal intellectual, Jaime Guzmán Errázuriz, in opposition to the university reform that was brewing in said house of studies. Guzmán led the resistance to the occupation of the central house by reformist groups from the center and in turn, tried to take over the university to reverse the impending triumph of the reformists. Although it failed, as a result of these events the union movement came into existence.
It soon became a real mass movement of the bourgeoisie, but also with a strong trade union component among the miners and transporters, against the government of Salvador Allende in 1972, which would have had a strong role in delivering a popular base of consensus for the coup of the military junta, led by Captain General Augusto Pinochet in 1973. Guzmán was the ideologue of the Chilean constitution of 1980.
In 1983 Guzmán moved to more liberal and conservative positions, but stayed close to Pinochet's government, founded the Independent Democratic Union and was its leader until he was assassinated by the communist guerrilla in 1991.
Its four principles are:
- It recognizes the human being, possessing an inviolable dignity and a transcendent destiny. Both its being and its end are superior to that of any society of a temporal order. Humans are capable of grouping together to be able to fulfill theselves as individuals. Consequently, the State must be at the service of the human person and not the other way around.
- Every human institution has its own specific purpose. Each human grouping can be objectively determined, without the need to resort to any political ideology.
- By definition, every society is capable of achieving its own objective and objective by itself: "social autonomies". Go freely to your own specific end.
- Both ideologies and political parties have to place their action at the level of the leadership of the State.
Christian Democracy, like his father, is a devout Christian, though he is also heavily in favor of liberal democracy. While he is Catholic in his original German and Italian forms, his sect of Christianity depends heavily on which party he is representing. He tends to have liberal to moderately conservative social views, and while he is heavily opposed to all forms of communism, he is usually opposed to uninhibited capitalism, often favoring a more moderate form of distributism.

- In 1934 in their book "Service Public", François de La Rocque wrote “The United States of Europe can only be the enlargement of a preliminary economic agreement. This will constitute both the touchstone and the first constructive stage of the great secular enterprise34. This anticipates the creation of the European Union from the European Community and previously the European Coal and Steel Community.’’ In 1939 and 1940 they envisioned an ‘‘after Hitler's defeat and collapse (...) a sort of federation of States belonging to the same civilization dominated by great common interests.’’
