  • I wonder if we could have a "Pan-Latinism", which is all about unifying Latin peoples in general - Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, Romanian, etc. Probably venerates the Roman Empire a lot.

    Pan-Lusitanism seems like a potential thing as well. I think what stopped it is the Anti-Lusitanic stream that ran on Brazilian Thought for a good while and still exists today.

    Militant Globalism. The world MUST be unified, by pen or sword, whatever the cost, because that's the only way it can be at peace! Closest things are the current Globalist ideology, and Societism from Look to the West, but Societism has its own quite peculiar characteristics.

    A "continuation" of Feudalism, in which the King has more power, but overall the nobles are pretty free. Kind of a "Aristocratic Federalism", so to say.

    In a world with more advanced genetics technology, an "Eugenic Aristocratic" ideology, where the Upper Castes are made of the "Genetically Superior", while the lower ones are made of the "genetically inferior".

    Gnostic methods applied to politics? Politics and information are kept as secret as possible, but in exchange, the ruling class must provide its ruled with all the prosperity and conforts it can.

  • Romanpapism/Pan-Romanism:

    Italy is the successor of the Roman Empire and the Western Empire. Constantine the Great donated the West to his holiness the Pope and Italy is what remains of the Western Empire. His holiness is the rightful ruler of Italy. The Pope has superiority over the Gothic usurper of Sardegna-Piedmont.

    With the Eastern Empire gone, Italy is the last remains of the Roman Empire against Russian and Turkish usurpers.

    Basically Christian-Nationalism in Italy, closely resembling Iran post Shah. The pope and the Curia are the rulers of Italy, protecting the Roman Church and Italian Culture. Developed in the 1850s.

  • Here's some obscure futuristic ideologies that I'm not sure if it's covered or have already been named:

    Pan-autovorism = the idea that all multicellular living things including plants and animals have souls and deserve not to get eaten. Eating both plants (veganism) and animals (carnivore) is wrong and as such, the only ethical thing to do is cloning parts of your own body for self-consumtion in an effort to eliminate any immoral acts inflicted upon other living beings. Life is truly sacred and must be respected

    Neoprimitivism = the elimination of industrial technology in society through back-to-nature lifestyle promotions. Goes back in pre-industrial ages from iron age, bronze age, copper age, and the stone ages.

    Pancyborgism = the flesh is weak and as such everyone must be upgraded with technological implants and prosthetics

    Theocorporatism = society is run by corporations who also function as religious institutions. Employers are also priests and preachers of the corporate religion. With multiple corporations came multiple denominations and beliefs.

    Hyperpatriarchism = the elimination of cis-women through the development of human cloning via artificial womb and the creation of a single-sex species via deliberate femicide

    Hypermatriarchism = the elimination of cis-men through the development of parthenogenesis technology and the creation of a single-sex species via deliberate androcide

    Monoracialism = the elimination of different skin pigmentation in humans through forced genetic modification of populations towards a neutral single colour like grey, violet, or orange or something

    Monosexism = elimination of all sexes through the creation of an artificial single-sex species

    Pangenism = the idea that personhood rights and even citizenship ought to extend to all those that have gained sentience and metacognition. This includes true-AI, uplifted animals, extremely genetically-modified « ex-humans » like true furries etc, cyborgs, uplifted cyborg-animals, etc. The idea that humans should only be counted as people is anthropocentric.

    Anthropism = human supremacist ideology

    Technism = AI supremacist ideology

    Adaptism = climate change is real but it's better that we adapt to the future climate rather than reverse the course towards pre-industrial climates. Raise the sea walls and move inland, develop GMO drought-resistent crops, etc. Forget the past, let's look forward to the future.

    Technocorporatism = a society run mostly by corporations who are then run by for-profit artificial intelligences

  • Racinisme - basically a 18th century, revolutionary French version of the Soviet policy of Korenizatsiya: its adherents think that, in order to bring the masses closer to revolutionary ideals and push them away from the reactionary hold of altar and throne, the revolution should get closer to them: therefore, the old royal provinces should be preserved as provinces of a democratic, federal France, their local languages should be promoted and used in order to increase literacy and make it easier for the people to learn and use French proper, and local people should be given precedence over non-local people in the day to day administration of the provinces.

    I doubt this concept would go far in France, but I can see it become quite influential in Italy, Spain (where it would be incorporated into the proto-anarchist tendencies of the country's left) and even Switzerland, once Napoleon rolls in.

  • I've thought about two concepts from OTL that could be exaggerated in their idiosyncrasy and become "political ideologies":

    1) Political Physiocracy or Fundamentalist Georgism - based on the Illuminist idealized version of the agrarian society as the most pure and uncorrupted. From the premise that all the wealth comes from the land and the earth, it would innaugurate some form of rural collectivism, but with a purposeful (and not accidental), albeit gradual, abandonment of the urban civilization. In essence, it would be a State-enforced fugere urbem, and its political organization is usually centered in provincial entities (parishes, counties, pagi, etc). Industrialism would be anathema to this system, but its emphasis in a collectivist economy brings a promise of a proto-utopian and non-conflicted society.

    2) Organicism - it is based on the "Organic Work" concept developed by Polish thinkers, one especially interesting in the Colonial and Imperialist world. The basic gist is to create a policy of conformism by subject minorities, but in exchange, it would ensure the preservation of its cultural individualities; that is, a form to conciliate the premises of nationalism with imperialism. It might gain traction in multi-ethnic empires that had no condition of resisting a strong imperial power, such as those of the Russian and British Empires. It would be an interesting experiment to see it in the British Raj, but also in colonial Africa.

  • Super fun stuff! I had one for a future history thing I'm working on called Cosmicism. Basically, society is divided between the Precariat (whose unifying characteristic is instability in consistent quality of life) and Kyriarchy (which is not a specific class or group but rather the web of connections that destabilizes the Precariat, and whoever profits off of it based on local context). Because climate shifts and resource scarcity (among other factors) expand the Precariat class by destabilizing existing societies it is the desire of Cosmicism to spread to encompass the entire human race, where the second stage goal becomes two-fold. First, because it considers itself a stabilizing force the entirety of human cultural history must be studied and preserved to serve as part of a universal human toolkit/monument to the human endeavor. Second, Cosmicism strives to expand human society beyond the Earth, both to extract resources (preserving the Earth's environment) and to prevent the total extinction of the human race in the event of a catastrophe.

    While fundamentally a big government ideology (and categorically convinced of individual insignificance on a historical scale), Cosmicism is actually a fairly libertarian ideology, on the basis that anything that doesn't threaten the cultural history/technical progress of the human race, or public order, or long term species survivability more generally is allowed. Human insignificance ironically makes most personal stuff far beneath concern for the state, and makes the cult of personality "Great Man" style of politics verboten.

    Styling itself the "Fourth Position" Cosmicism expands on the Marxist conception of history by swapping Liberalism for Capitalism and including Fascism as a reaction against Marxism. The current age is retroactively described as Nihilist, blending cynical distortions of the preceding stages in a terrible world destroying post-modern death spiral. Despite the fact that Cosmicism is a conscious reaction against it Nihilism is not considered an ideology in the Cosmicist conception of history.

    Cosmicist historiography is divided into two different core concepts. The Four Positions are arranged in a chain called the Leviathan, made up of a series of stages where each next link reacts against all the preceding links. The length of each stage is different and leaves stronger or weaker traces in each subsequent stage.
    1. The first (and chronologically longest) is Feudalism, using an intentionally imprecise definition to cover every hierarchical society between the formation of settled states and the Enlightenment. Feudalism is characterized by mercantilism.
    2. A desire for liberty would give rise to Liberalism during the Enlightenment, which is characterized by general government non-intervention in ordinary human affairs (in theory at least). Liberalism and Socialism rely on different approaches to capitalism.
    3. A desire for equality gave rise to Socialism, which sought to use different degrees of government intervention to improve human affairs.
    4. A desire for fraternity would lead to Fascism, as conceptions of state and nation would be used to focus government intervention toward (or against) specific groups to strengthen social cohesion.
    5. Nihilism would congeal from the remains of the first three positions, relying on distorted history and a retrocultural impulse to try to shape social and governmental affairs. Because it is not grounded in reality Nihilism represents terminal decline, producing a fear of the future.
    Cosmicism divides the future history into three stages of social complexity. The Leviathan is wholly contained in the Volksgeist stage of seperate states competing for dominance across history. A desire for eternity (a stable long-term flowering of human potential) ushers in the creation of Cosmicism and the Zeitgeist, a revolutionary wave. The ultimate success of the Zeitgeist would result in the Weltgeist, a united global humanity reaching out eagerly into the solar system.

    The Fourth Position views the left-right political spectrum as reductionist, and relies on a complex political spectrum with four different axes. Progressive/Conservative governs social attitudes, Authoritarian/Libertarian deals with levels of personal freedom, Gradual/Radical deals with the pace of Cosmicist reform, and finally Populist/Elite relates where the mechanism for implementing this reform comes from. Rather than reduce figures and nations to points on a line this has the effect of creating a descriptive shape instead.

    Theoretically at the conclusion of the Weltgeist stage a desire for expansion beyond the Solar System and a drive to achieve infinity would produce a Fifth Position capable of absorbing and surpassing Cosmicism in the creation of a constantly transforming human diaspora, not unlike the Scattering in Dune.

  • Protestocracy:
    • The form of government resulting in view that if a policy has critics, it does not pursue the common good
    • Those critics are not to go on and gossip and complain at bear. Every man views himself as a perfect prime minister, and the manager of the national representation in sports.
    • The attitude show how it can be done better prevails
    In practice, anyone who calls a demonstration automatically becomes in charge of government... Until a next demonstration is called

    Likely outcomes: early on, many individuals with various different views try to present their ideology. Any imposition of ideology is however challenged ; ultimately either the government stabilizes on a non-ideological stewardship, or you get the military protesting and establish a junta.

  • Safavidism

    Safavidism was created as a theocratic ideology by some clergy from Qom in the 1870s, which claimed that the Safavids were Sayyid descendants and thus rightful leaders of the Muslims, the Twelvers in particular. All the Twelvers were obliged to swear loyalty to the Shah of Shahs of Persia as long as it were the Sayyids. Helping in favor of the Shah meant that the Twelver community would become stronger and grow further. It rejects all forms of Republicanism in Persia while supporting it Shia majority regions outside Persia as possibls allies/sattelites of Persia as long as it was in combination with Sharia Law. Communism, Nationalism and Liberalism were seen as devilish creation rejected. The Shahs government would be lead by the clergy and Sayyids in particulars to ensure a pure Islamic society. Private property was respected as long as the people give 25% donation from their income as tax. Industries were to be left for state use only. In theory this would mean that the Shahs power would be reduced just as a constitutional monarchy but instead of MP's with the highest clergy of the country. The Shah was used as a symbolic amir of the Twelvers of the world. Unlike the reactionary or conservatives, these theocrats were in favor of certain modernisation to keep the State free from foreign threats and give aid to supporters.

    The Safavid Shahs saw Safavidism as an undermining movement of radical clergy to turn the Shah into a puppet and persecuted it as late as the 1990s until the ideology died out due to the declining religiosity. Safavidism was replaced by other forms of theocratic ideologies in the 1920s. It never got more suport than 5% of the Shia Clergy in Persia. The largest support base was however among Indian Shias which used it as a "justification of war" against the Europeans and Mughal Emperor in India, with 33%.

    The Ottomans, Mughals and the British persecuted the organisation outside Persia.

  • For my version of a Tory America/FWOAN universe, and a very different French Revolution and Civil War, instead of “left” and “right” ideologies, the best I could come up with are “Imperialism” and “Nationalism.” Basically
    • Imperialism promotes a strong projection of the military abroad, and free trade at home. It supports the supremacy of the Imperial Congress/Diet over the several Parliaments in foreign and interregional affairs, an independent Imperial Navy funded by tariffs and seignorage of the American dollar, jus soli citizenship throughout the Empire, uniform traffic laws, electric standards, university examinations, unannounced global atomic energy inspections and colonization of outer space.
    • Nationalism promotes a local military independent of the Empire and economic protectionism. It supports supremacy of Parliament in all matters, with the Imperial Congress/Diet a mere diplomatic forum, a local navy funded and controlled by Parliament, a freely floating dollar for each Realm, jus sanguinis citizenship, local traffic laws (to the point of left- or right-hand traffic!) and transmission of electricity, independent universities, atomic controls free from international visits and a veto on spaceflights over the country.
    I will be posting more details in the future.

  • Laconophilia
    The guiding philosophy of Militarist France, Laconophiliacs primary ideological goal is the 'resurrection' of Spartan culture and society through universal life long universal male conscription, perpetual military buildup and a brutal eugenics program. Like the original Sparta, Militarist France's obsession with their own military buildup has stunted their society and economy since the end of their Civil War 40 years ago. The massive French army relies on a large army of slaves (mostly comprised of Italians, Germans, Hugenots, and 'Blood Criminals' to support the armed forces). This structure means that France has great success in short engagements (like the Seizure of Northern Italy) but is unable to support itself in drawn out campaigns (Like the English and Spanish Wars).

    Jombooism
    The term draws its name from the Mandingian cultural figure Maamajomboo. During the Wars of Resistance against the colonial powers political and military leaders adopted his visage and persona so that they could reintegrate themselves into society should their rebellions fail as well as allowing Maamajomboo to rise from the dead multiple times during the Wars of Resistance greatly boosting the morale of the Madinga while demoralizing their enemies. To this day we do not know everyone who was taken up the identity of Maamajomboo or who currently leads the Mandingian Republic under that moniker. Nor is Mandingia the only nation to embrace Jombooism the collision of folklore and telepolitics has led to similar anti-colonial uprisings lead by King Arthur (England), Hong Gil-dong (Goryeo-Manchu) and Koschei the Deathless (United Slavia).

    Alternate Historicism
    While not the only feature of the current Hawaiian society, Alternate Historicism is one of the most commonly referenced social policies when discussing why Hawaii under the Mahalo Regime is one of the most totalitarian societies on Earth. As stated by the Hawaiian government, the goal of Alternate Historicism is to, "ensure that the hearts of our children will sing with eternal thanks to their ancestors for protecting their beautiful nation" (this theme of eternal thanks is why Hawaii's government is called the Mahalo Regime). In the real world this policy is an attempt to decolonize Hawaiian society in a single generation by teaching children that their nation has been involved in a might struggle to protect themselves from the outside world that only ended shortly after they were born rather than try to teach them the actual history of their country. While children are separated from things that might give them opposing ideas (such as accurate history books, foreign languages, and in some cases their own parents). The first generation to live under Alternate Historicism are currently 15-16 years old, what few soundbites we can get from their classes seems to reveal that they know almost nothing about the outside world and firmly believe that Hawaii has been a rich and feared independent state since their crushing victory in the War of Global Imperialistic Aggression almost 500 years ago, despite that not being true. Despite concerns over the Mahalo Regime, the success of the United Ainu Kingdoms homeschooling program, utopian societies and the rise of telestates means that Alternate Historicism will likely remain a minor political ideology for the foreseeable future.

  • Ultra-Calvinist Nationalism

    The Calvinist notion that those who are saved and those who are dammed have been predetermined by God is taken to a nationalist extreme, in which all those who have been elected by God should be unified under one state, based on the legal and spiritual systems of the Republic of Geneva during the rule of Calvin and his followers. According to Ultra-Calvinist Nationalism, it is the role of this state to export the faith in order to convert others who were determined to be saved. This must come at any cost, whether through peaceful conversion or through military force.

    Fanonism

    Based on the works of Franz Fanon, Fanonism concerns itself with violent overthrow of colonialism but also with removing it's remnants (for instance White cultural and social norms) to create a truely post-Colonial society. It emphasizes the nurturing of national and pan-national cultures, political and economic self-sufficiency, indigenous institutional structures, but also the adoption of Western concepts in order to compete in a Western-dominated world in order to push forward with the process of decolonization. Fanonists were the main force behind the creation of the pan-African language, Frato.
     
    English Socialism
  • Pan-Anglo-Saxonism: A formal name for the ideology that calls for English speaking peoples to grow closer together and to form a single nation at its most extreme/optimistic. I don't consider this a new ideology, so mcuh as just a name for what already exists in OTL for all those who call for a united Anglosphere.

    English Socialism(EngSoc): An ideology developed in Britain in reaction to the rising power of Germany, as well as a result of the inequality amongst the British masses. It called for Britain to throw off its old Norman influence, in the form of its upper classes and monarchy, and to instead embrace a more explicitly Germanic identity, while also seeing that all English are treated equally. This would also mean removing the non-Germanic influence in the English language,renaming cities, taking more "German" sounding names, and also joining Germany in an alliance. This movement would particularly pick up speed in the aftermath of the Anglo-German War, which would see the UK broken up into its constituent nations, while also not being treated to badly by their German occupiers. It also really helped that the British Government, Royal Family included, had already left Britain a year before and had been leading the nation in a failing war, that they are often blamed for starting, from afar in Canada. In terms of economy, English Socialism is basically the OTL Nordic Model, though it still goes for rather Brutalist aesthetics that one would not find out of place from the OTL Eastern Bloc. In terms of government, English Socialism still calls for a democratic nation, though it to be more accessible to the regular people and to not just those who can afford to campaign elections. When it comes to religion, EngSoc is about as tolerant to religion, in public, as the French in OTL are, though otherwise it doesn't bother much with it.

  • Might I recommend we get some Threadmarks?

    the ideology below is one that, if I ever had the time, I would love to make into it’s own thing, but it essentially exists as a “third way” between Romanticism and the Enlightenment. Just to be clear, below isn’t my views on the military (I am a pacifist), but a generalisation of a trend counter to the other two dominant movements.

    Martialism

    This ideology starts in an AH Cromwellian England where the Major Generals are more popular. Over time, a distinct ideological trend in the Anglo sphere comes into dominance, which essentially rationalises the military as the ideal over the state, nation etc. This isn’t in the same sense as militarism say, for Prussia (which was a distinctly romantic militarism), or for Bolivarian regimes (which was a distinctly enlightenment militarism), nor is it the belief in military rule as a temporary state of order.

    Martialism views the nation state and the kingdom (in most cases) as a political fiction, believing that political power is only meaningful in relation to the ability to enforce it and that it is a military which solely defines and/or uplifts a person in meaningful terms and thus is the most important arbiter for rights. Citizenship is most deserving for those who enable the rights of citizens (the military), Conscription is seen as empowering and a martial lifestyle is the most virtuous because of it being the only one where an individual acts to uphold morality in real terms.

    in short, think Agrarianism but with an emphasis on power (as opposed to tradition or liberty) as the ideal and with the soldier in place of the farmer.

    Forms of Martialism

    Democratic: A democratic martialism could rely on something similar to that of Starship Troopers, or be akin to a Jeffersonian democracy. Voting isn’t about the structure of society, but is instead for the establishment of military judges/tribunals who represent the citizens wishes in a senatorial fashion.

    Oligarchy: Everyone is a conscript in some fashion, even if they work in the private sector (presuming there is a private sector) on the justification that mass conscription ensures responsible power to the citizenry who can rise to any heights.
     
    National Imperialism
  • Right now I can think of the following:

    National-imperialism (naimper)

    When a people becomes a nation state, its main objective is to become the predominant nation state of its region, in other words, its hegemon, by obtaining its natural borders and preventing its neighbors from doing the same, creating dependent satellite states of the national empire.

    Types of national-imperialism:

    -Ethnic: When national boundaries to be reached only include one ethnic group.

    -Civic: When the national borders to be reached include different ethnic groups united by a common destiny.
     
    Six Schools/Neolegalism
  • So something I've been wondering for the past couple of days: what sort of scenario could see one or more of the Chinese Six Schools (Confucianism, Legalism, Taoism, Mohism, Yin-Yang, and Logicians) mature/evolve into competitive political ideologies (in the modern sense) in the wider East Asian region and eventually beyond? Maybe a different Warlord Period at the latest, or perhaps an earlier fall of the Qing? Of course the ultimate accomplishment of such an ideology would essentially be a reverse PRC scenario, namely a western nation reorganizing along the lines of an eastern ideology. I'd say some strain of Neo-Legalism would be the most likely to achieve such a result.
     
    Links to ideologies from various TLs
  • So, mostly because I would have really liked to have found such a thing when I first joined this site, I decided to make a list of links to timelines with their own ideologies. A few notes on the list, I'm avoiding listing ideologies that are broadly similar to real ones (for example, Revivalism is Lithuanian Nazism with the serial numbers filed off, in my opinion) but keeping ones with the same name as OTL if they're significantly different. So, Fascism from What Madness is this is out, but Fascism from Separated at Birth gets to stay. I'm also only linking to specific posts that distill what the ideology is about (more or less). It goes without saying that people shouldn't go bumping dead threads but I just wanted to get the information out there. If anybody has any neat ones I've missed I'm hoping this thread can be a robust resource. Fair warning a few of them are mine, but I'm sticking to the ones I actually put serious thought in to.

    Funky Time | All of the weirdest Ideologies Miranda Brawner could think of!
  • Some silly ideas I've been thinking about, some more plausible than others:
    • Illegalocracy: A government by and for the criminals! Yes, I know what you're thinking: Doesn't this describe pretty much every government ever? Yes, but Illegalocracy would take things in a more... non-traditional direction. The Illegalocrats believe that law and government are inherently evil, and therefore, anything that is illegal or treasonous is good. They managed to get into power largely because everyone assumed they were speaking metaphorically. They weren't. In order to avoid contradicting their own ideology once they got into power, they set up a puppet government to take the blame for everything. It goes like this: If the Illegalocrats want to encourage a certain behavior, they will tell discreetly tell the puppet government to ban that behavior. Then the people, in defiance of their puppet government, will do the behavior more than ever, just to stick it to the Man. Meanwhile, the Illegalocrats sit in the background cackling maniacally and getting high. At least, that's how it's supposed to work. It's one of the few countries where the ruling party is also a banned party, because for something to be good, it must be illegal. Needless to say, relations between the Illegalocracy and its neighbors are... interesting.
    • Senocracy: The government is composed of the oldest people in the country. Cue a surge in the fake-birth-certificate industry.
    • Infantocracy: Officeholders must be 11 years old or younger. And that refers to their actual chronological age, not their maturity level.
    • Old Europeanism: A regime somewhere in Europe latches onto the idea that the Indo-European languages are inherently evil and must be stamped out. Everyone is forced to learn a fabricated rediscovered language from the allegedly utopian time before the arrival of those wacky steppe nomads from Ukraine. Has heavy "noble savage" overtones.
    • Obfuscatarianism: What the unlenlightened masses call "incoherent babbling" is actually the highest form of wisdom! Demonstration majority tape usually purchase refuse disagree other propose, face? Dozen careful. Heel, fifteen strategy property, armed noise wealth standard interpretation actor, busy. (These words were chosen by a pseudorandom number generator ṯ̈́̽ͅḣe̲̦̥ ̄in̬̪s͇̙cr̯ͫǖ͒t̳̥͚͆̏͑ã̭̜̩̔̅bͅl̈̉̓e͓̘ͤͣ ͈ͨwǐl̥̻̦l̙̝ ͚̪̜̊̄͆o͈͆f ̖͙͔th̺̜͊ͪẻ̈ ̭̔̆ͅC̦osm̊ͦͤo̠̫͐ͫs̟͕͌ͧ .)
    • Antimonetarism: Destory all the money, and all our problems will be solved! What's that? The kids are using bread as currency now? Then destroy all the food too! That'll teach 'em!
    • Humancentipedism: The folks who think the world would be a better place if everyone's bodies were conjoined so that we can more easily exchange our aeonic cytheropneumatocthonofluids.
    • National Humorism: No, not a government run by stand-up comedians. If only. No, this is an ideology where people are sorted into castes based on the four humors of classical western medicine. How does the government decide which humor you belong to? Magick.Just remember, if your local haemomancer decides that you're suffering from an excess of blood, then watch out.
    • Australopithecism: They believe Australopithecus Afarensis (lived c. 4,000,000 to 2,900,000 BCE) was the pinnacle of evolution, and it is our moral duty to evolve back to that "ideal form". When asked how exactly they plan to carry out this "guided re-evolution", they tend to change the subject.
    • Floresiensism: Same as the above, but they read Lord of the Rings too many times.
    • Hollowearthian National Adventurism (Anti-Revisionist): They spend a staggering portion of the nation's wealth on sending expeditions to "The World Within". Hwaette didst thou say'st, sceptick? Thyne inuestmente shalle bee return'd to thee, swell'd inn sise bye an hundr'dfold!
    • Fortissimocracy: A group of people who sincerely believe that the louder you say something, the truer it becomes! There's no way that could possibly backfire on them!

    Let me know if you'd like to learn more about any of these.
     
    Incanidad (a sort of Inca/Peruvian Nationalism)
  • Incanidad

    During the Peruvian Revolution (1925-1936) a new attitude began to emerge, first in the countryside in revolutionary circles, that rejected the prevalent admiration for European society and dismissive attitudes towards Peru's indigenous heritage. As the revolution drew to a close in its final years, this new movement was embraced and utilized to create a new, populist, nationalism by the Partido Revolucionario Político y Social (PRPS) who emerged victorious from the war. Coined by President Fernando Huancahari Garcia, Incanidad stressed the importance of Peru's Incan heritage in the creation of the Peruvian nation. According to Garcia, an undeniable Incan spirit has always remained with the nation and its people, but had been supressed by the Peruvian elite, and by foreign powers. It meant Peru not only was unique compared to the West and much of South America, its people were superior. PRPS saw it's neighbours in Ecuador, Colombia, Chile and Bolivia as nations with peoples with that same Incan blood, or at least with some regions that shared Incan heritage, and it drove policies of supporting Incanidad movements in those countries, or attempts to take land by force. In Peru it saw a generation of Peruvian artists inspired by indigenous art, indigenous languages were spoken more regularly and indigenous names became highly popular.
