"Spain has no foolish dreams."

Francoism is an Authoritarian ideology that believes that the beliefs of Francisco Franco should be implemented. He is very nationalistic, militaristic, and catholic.

History

Origins

It all started in 1936 during the beginning of the Spanish civil war. Franco emerged as the dominant rebel military leader and was proclaimed Head of State on 1 October 1936, ruling a dictatorship over the territory controlled by the Nationalist faction. The 1937 Unification Decree, which merged all parties supporting the rebel side, led to Nationalist Spain becoming a single-party regime under the FET y de las JONS

After the civil war

At the end of the civil war, the nationalists won and Franco became dictator of all of Spain. WW2 then broke out, and Spain did not join the Axis powers ( Germany, Japan and Italy) because of how war-torn the country was—or at least that was Franco’s alibi. Then the 1947 Law of Succession made Spain a de jure "Kingdom" again but it wasn't. Reforms were implemented in the 1950s and Spain abandoned autarky, kicked out the Falangist movement, which had been prone to isolationism, to a new breed of economists, the technocrats of Opus Dei. This led to massive economic growth, second only to Japan, that lasted until the mid-1970s, known as the "Spanish miracle". In 1955 Spain joined the United Nations and Franco was one of Europe's most outspoken anti-communist figures: his regime was assisted by the Western powers, particularly the United States, and it asked to join NATO.

Death of Franco

Franco died in 1975 at the age of 82. He restored the monarchy before his death and made his successor King Juan Carlos I, who would lead the Spanish transition to democracy. This would be the end of Francoism in Spain.

Neo-Francoism

Neo-Francoism is a term used to designate positions that support Francoism or its ideals after Franco's death. Some parties that could fall into this category are España 2000 or Democracia Nacional, categorized as neo-fascist and extreme right-wing.

Some media have used this term to refer to extreme right-wing or conservative movements.

Sociological Francoism/Post-Francoism

Sociological Francoism (also called Post-Francoism) refers to the political ideas of Francisco Franco that continue to prevail in Spanish society and politics after his death.

Mainly this can happen due to the support of ideas that the caudillo mainly defended as Authoritarianism, National Catholicism , Militarism, Technocracy and other ideals, but also this can be expressed with phrases like "Con Franco vivíamos mejor" (With Franco we lived better) and "Esto con Franco no pasaba" (This with Franco didn't happen) in a sarcastic or serious way.

Beliefs

Francoism believes in Authoritarianism, Anti-Communism, unitarian Spanish nationalism and National Catholicism , it sought Spain to become a monarchy to appease reactionaries with the 1947 Law of Succession made Spain a de jure kingdom, heavily utilizing imagery and concepts that reference the Catholic Kings of Old Spain in order to praise them as national symbols of true Spanish identity (while Franco's government wasn't a monarchy itself but instead a personalized dictatorship), Militarism, Ultranationalism,. It also believes in extreme Anti-Masonry, anti-separatism, and anti-parliamentarianism. Despite its deeply ideological governance, it advocates for a non-ideological cabinet based on skill.

Some say that it's also a Spanish variant of fascism, but this is disputable. While it had a close relationship with Italian and German fascist ideologies and shared similar aesthetics, it arguably isn't fascist itself in the traditional sense, especially after WWII ended. Rather, it became more of a spiritual predecessor for the far-right South American juntas of the '70s (Pinochet, Stroessner, Videla...) mainly due to its pioneering of the "developmental state" (a regime which synthesizes high authoritarianism, revivalist nationalism and social ultraconservatism with broadly technocratic economic liberal policies).

Personality and Behavior

Francoism is a very serious and stern ideology. He is also very proudly religiously-inspired in his feverish nationalism, usually seen celebrating Spain and her eternal glory. He is also very vocally Catholic and is usually seen either at church, praying, or singing "Ave Maria!" or "Gloria in excelsis Deo!" He is also not that great at speaking English and often his English sounds broken.

Amienemigos

  • Nasserism - The most anti-Western falangists admire you but I cannot get too close to your regime because with your pro-Soviet overtures you would compromise my relations with the USA.
  • Ho Chi Minh Thought - "We must give him credit for being a patriot who cannot be indifferent to the annihilation of his country [...] he could, without doubt, be the man of the hour needed by Vietnam." (Franco's letter to the American president). I still helped the US and South Vietnamese war effort.

  • Guevarism - I only allowed you to enter Spain to meet your friend Peron during his exile.

  • Alt-Lite - He should go offline, but at least he opposes the Reds.
  • Reactionary Liberalism - He really likes my post-war economic liberalization. Still, too democratic.
  • Totalitarianism - A totalitarian state will harmonize in Spain the operation of all the capabilities and energy in the country, that inside the National Unity, the work esteemed as the most unavoidable must be the only exponent of the people's will. But I later abandoned you for a more respectable variant of authoritarianism after I halted the blessed White Terror and started to institute economic liberalization and gradual political thaw. Even though America kinda pressured to implement these policies in exchange for aid and acceptance.
  • Democratic Socialism - Pro-Republican socialista libtard, but Allendism isn't that bad and even I kinda like it.

  • Nguemaism - In the end I also had to give up Equatorial Guinea, but you weren't the worst post-colonial leader and you maintained good relations with Spain.
  • Tridemism - I really would have liked Chiang Kai-shek nationalists to defeat the communists like I did in Spain but they were too incompetent to have won ,also you overthrew your king.I have to admit that Mao won so in 1973 like much of the world I suspended formal relations with Taiwan and only recognized the PRC.
  • National Syndicalism - Good friend during first Francoism but in the end the technocrats of Opus Dei advised me to abandon the more syndicalist and corporatist policies in favor of free market which led to the Spanish miracle.
  • Neoconservatism - I won't join your godless crusade, but I'll give a little bit of aid in some areas I deem fit.
  • Autarky - I implemented you until 1959, but you didn't work so well, isolation made my economy stagnate. Why did the falangist old guard continue to support you anyway?

Enemigos

  • Spanish Republicanism - Keep crying harder, the Maquis are not going to undo your second place in 1939.
  • Klansmanism - Tf, why do the members of the Lincoln brigade say that I am him? I am literally an ultra-Catholic who persecuted Protestants like him in the early years of the regime.
  • Maquis - Did you really believe that your miserable invasion of the Val d'Aran could overthrow my regime? We kicked you like in 1939.
  • Euskadi Carlism - Carlos Hugo is just a socialist and pseudo-Carlist idiot, we worked with the real Carlists to punish your betrayal.
  • Federalism - These autonomous communities that divide the nation have been one of the biggest mistakes of the democratic transition, centralization is the only way.

  • Gaullism - Another Frenchman who understands nothing and who sold out his empire.
  • Neoliberalism - I knew this would happen to my beloved homeland. That goddamn neocon tricked me!
  • Zionism - I sheltered some of your people during the Holocaust, but you'd later betray me and voted against my admission to the UN. You hypocritical fool! I diplomatically supported the Arab countries against you and didn't recognize your illegal settlements as revenge.
  • Spanish Jazzism - Jazz is bad, you will be limited.
  • Constitutional Monarchism - Scheming traitorous scum!
  • Mediacracy - If I don't like what you're writing, you're done.
  • Marxism–Leninism - ¡Al paredón!
  • Progressivism - You're nothing more than a puppet of terrorists and a costumed Marxist! At least we both hate Zionism.
  • Anarcho-Syndicalism - You lost against me in the civil war! Seethe! Cope! Dilate!
  • Independence Anarchism - HAHAHAHA, can you cry louder?
  • Freemasonry - YOUR MASONIC-COMMUNIST PLOT AGAINST SPAIN WILL NEVER SUCCEED!!!!!
  • Protestant Theocracy - I HAVE PERSECUTED YOU, COPE! Why did the pope pressure me to pass the Law of Religious Freedom in 1967?
  • Left-Wing Nationalism - YOU VASCOS TERRORISTAS KILLED MY PRIME MINISTER BLANCO! IF IT WASN'T FOR YOU VASCOS TERRORISTAS SPAIN WOULD STILL BE UNDER MY REGIME!!!
  • Saturday Night Live - I. AM. NOT. DEAD. I am clearly alive and breathing!
  • Titoism - So many Yugoslav partisan commanders were in the international brigades... May you perish, Tito.
  • Kemalism - I’ll never forgive you for supporting him. You also disgust me by being progressive, anti-fascist, and anti-theocracy.
