Chapter 687: The Namo/ Faro Core Ideology
Chapter 687: The Namo/ Faro Core Ideology

The dear readers of the Times might wonder, what kind of Ideology Namo/ NaMo (National Monarchism) and Faro/ FaRo (Fascist Royalism) truly is. The answer to that is not a easy one, but important none the less. In it's prime core the ideology is a mixture and blend of reactionary, traditional preserving, social conservative, religious conservative, societal conservative, national ethnic, aristocratic royal and religious movements. While officially beginning with the rise of Fascist and Nationalist movements, the origins of Namo and Faro can be dated back all the way to the early aristocratic opposition to self-determinate democracy and elections in general. First in the Spanish Civil War, were Carlists northern forces joined the central Falangist (Fascist) and the Francoist Military, then in Germany, where the Military and the Aristocracy Hohenzollernists joined forces against internal threats and enemies. Quickly they were followed by Austria-Hungary and Italy, were Austrofascist and Fascist forces joined hands with the Aristocracy and the Military too and later all across Europe, were Aristrocratic, Royalist and Monarchist groups sided with Fascist, Nationalist and Military groups to form Axis Central Power Collaboration Governments. They opposed completely democratic elected governments as well as socialist and communist ones alike, sometimes even opposing other fascist, nationalistic, aristocratic, royal and monarchist groups that were opposing them to work with some of this forces for the greater good of their Nation States.

This meant that sometimes the Namo and Faro governments included quit different, yes even opposing groups, who still worked together in coalition, or wartime governments to establish a certain kind of government, meant to guide and direct their Aristocratic Nation States into the direction they favored the most. Sometimes this lead to opposing decisions, other times it unified and allied factions that would otherwise never have worked together. This while creating a national unified government, still allowed for some kind of diverse parties and with them politics and ideologies inside of it. Still it allowed them to unify and guide their nations in the direction some very powerful and influential royal and political figures hoped. Democracy and voting if it exists at all inside these nations greatly restricted opposing ideologies and parties, if they weren't outright banned and illegal. Paramilitary party groups, often also providing the local Landwehr as militias and even police and army forces, intimidating the political opposition by stopping their rallies, beating them up and sometimes even killing opposition politicians. In the world view of the Namo/ Faro Ideology the national, aristocratic and religion movements, while supportive of them all, their sole purpose was to integrate and focus all of them on the state and in extension it's leading ruler's will. Therefore pure Namo/ Faro believe was seen as incompatible with true liberty, democracy and elections, even if their own internal elections sometimes played a important role in what party would rule in them and guide their nation states to a certain goal.

Own View: In their own worldview Namo and Faro ideologies are a bulwark against the change of the old order, the preservation of divinely ordained rule, nation states and state religions. To secure and preserve all of them against change, no matter if peaceful or violent, Therefore true democracy, capitalism, anarchy, socialism, communism, coprospism and other ideologies and movements were seen as evil, negative forces. Therefore the Namo/ Faro believed to be part of a holy crusade against this evil, villainous forces, that tried to change their just and perfect worlds.

Western Allies View: To the Western Allies (America, Britain, France and the others), the Namo/ Faro Ideology was nothing short then tyranny of either some political party, some form of despot (both political and monarchic rulers alike) and greatly opposing of democracy, voting, free markeds and capitalism. Thereby threatening their independence and freedom. This was despite the fact that some overlapping factors between parts of Namo/ Faro and western political parties and ideas existed to a certain extent. Some even claimed that Namo/ Faro and Socialist/ Communist Movements had partly the same syndicalist routes and were therefore brotherly ideologies.

Soviet Comintern View: For the Soviet Union and the Comintern, the Namo/ Faro Ideology was their main political opposition and enemy. Both in terms of core ideology, but also in terms of the fight for dominance over Europe, were they threatened true Communist rule and political influence of all kind. Therefore the Crusade against Bolshewism, the Eastern Crusade against the Soviet Union was likewise a holy war for the Communist as well, not only against hated Capitalism, but also against the aristocratic banks, industrial and military power of the true old despotic tyranny of the aristocracy that had enslaved mankind since the dawn of time.

Coprospist View: For the Coprospists (the Empire of Japan as well as others) the Namo/ Faro Nation states, while fellow monarchies or authoritarian states, were mainly seen as Imperialist European (and later American) Powers that threatened their freedom, liberty and independence. For them they were mainly Colonial and Imperialist Powers that sought to enslave all people of Asia under their empires for as long as they could. Therefore the Copropists, while sharing the same enemies in the Allies and Comintern, yes even sharing technology and plans to split up the world, believed that a future confrontation with the Namo/ Faro led Axis Central Power States was inevitable, similar to how the Namo/ Faro Axis Central Powers believed the same about the Yellow Threat of the Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere in return.
 
I think the Great Race War between Coprospists and Namo-Faro won't happen.

1 ) They perceive each other as a threat mainly for historical reasons rooted in colonialism, and sheer racism, but actually they can perfectly co-exist.
It's not like Western Capitalism and Communism, where the mere existence (or worse, success) of one directly threatens the ideological legitimacy of the other.
2 ) Their core regions are far away from each other.
3 ) Japan will have lots of work to integrate and hold the CPS (and turn it into an efficient machine to fuel Japanese economy and military without triggering costly revolts), while ACP countries have their own rivalries (and Britain) to worry about.
4 ) It's not MITHC, where Japan and Germany had ASB-level worldwide success. Here, Japan is actually losing the Pacific War, even if it does better than OTL (and will only be saved by the USA throwing the towel) ; Germany will have known three years of USAF bombing ; the Allies have won in Subsaharan Africa and it will only be reversed thanks to US Civil War.
So it's more like WWI where the victors didn't have a total crushing victory and were tired and battered too. Which will lead to less hubris.
5 ) This version of Imperial Japan hasn't drunk the Kool Aid (less than OTL), and Germany isn't led by Hitler and his clique, so while they have lots of overly grandiose plans they also won't risk losing everything on a whim.

Realistically, there won't be something like the Cold War.
Rivalry yes, but as a game (like the Anglo-Russian rivalry in 19th century).
And at some point, mutual racism between ACP and CPS may decrease thanks to the appeal of mutual trade and reduced military spending. Though internal racism (towards Jews, Subsaharan Africans, oppressed ethnic groups in CPS...) will likely remain high.
 
Indeed the early Great Cold War TTL will be much more like the Great Game for the first decades, before turning hotter thanks to embargos, proxy wars (Asia, Africa as well as America) and such after some internal mutual trade and even political relations. But it will not be a as fast and direct rivalry between ACP and CPS like OTL Cold War soon was after WW2.
 
Chapter 688: The Coprospist Core Ideology
Chapter 688: The Coprospist Core Ideology

Similar, but at the same time totally different then the National Monarchist/ Fascist Royalist was the Coprospist movement of the Imperial Japanese Co-Prosperity Sphere. They were very traditional and wished to preserve cast/ society, cultural, religious and partly even architectural traditions. To do so however they realized that they had to modernize their technology, industry and society to a certain extent, to remain their independence and freedom against the Foreign Devils, the white, long nosed Europeans and Americans. Only a powerful, modernized Asian Nation could withstand the conquest and dominance of these evil, but clearly more powerful and dominating American and European Powers. To do so they aimed not to erase and destroy their own past, as the main goal was to preserve and secure their own old nation states. Instead they opted to evolve their original routs into something new, more industrialized, modern and powerful, while not loosing their own connection to their traditions, culture, art, religion and overall soul of their very own society. To some extent this meant copying and implementing some of the governmental, ideological, economical and societal differences to become more modern, industrialized, independent and powerful themselves.

Despite this the various Coprospist ideologies differentiated quit vastly from one another, as they each incorporated various regional cultural, religious and societal aspects in themselves that made them more acceptable and individual to various regions, states, nations and people's the best way possible. While the Japanese tried to gain some more influence and unity by spreading Buddhism, Shintoism and even Japanese settlers, language and culture throughout the Co-Prosperity Sphere, regional differences still remained to a extent. While the main core region of the Yen Block and the Coprospist Co-Prosperity Sphere remained Buddhist, Shinto Japanese and Buddhist Shindo/ Shingyo Chosen, the northernwestern part was dominated by Buddhist Mengjiang, the western central part was dominated by various Buddhist Shénto Chinese, or Chinese inspired Nation States, while the most western and southern part was partly Hindu/ Hindi and Mohammedan Indian, Buddhist Burmese, Buddhsit Siamese/ Tai, Buddhist Laotian, Buddhist Campuchean, Buddhist Vietnamese, Anito Philippine and even Mohammedan Borneo/ Malay, Mohammedan Sumatran and Mohammedan Javanese. This meant that various Coprospists states had closer regional ties in terms of culture and religion, yes sometimes even architecture and other things with various close-by neighbors, then they had with the Japanese Empire and other parts of the Co-Prosperity Sphere. While not the same differences, as between the German and Latin parts of the Axis Central Powers, they were still quit significant and the Japanese tried to erase them by using the same currency, language and form a unified culture and religion for the majority of the Co-Prosperity Sphere over the decades.

Own View: Under the term Asia for Asians, the Coprospist ideology presented itself as a anti-colonial, anti-imperialist movement seeking to liberate and modernist the oppressed masses and states of Asia (as well as later Africa, America and the Rest of the World). In their own view they were a just, liberating, modernizing, traditional culture, religion and society preserving movement, that would lead the world into the modern times under well-meaning parental Japanese guidance.

Western Allies View: To the Western Allies (mainly America, Britain, France and some others) the Coprospist movement was a anti-colonial Yellow Peril that sought to eliminate not only their colonial powers in Asia and the Pacific, but even all of their trade opportunities and influence. At first this was worse enough for their powerful empires, territories and economic trade options, worsening because of the Coprospist anti-European, anti-American, anti-Colonial and anti-Imperialist propaganda and movement support against their own states and empires. But the Yellow Panic turned even worse, when Japan forced Australia to immediately accept around 2 million Japanese settlers (out of overall only seven million Australians), later maybe even more, turning the White Australia Policy around and the continent from White to Yellow. This was also represent in the new official Imperial Japanese, Co-Prosperity Sphere wording for Australian; Ōsutoraria was renamed Australasia, Australian South Asia or more accurate; Asia Meridianam, Minamiajia as a result. The Yellow Panic increased as these Japanese settlers, as well as those in Bolivia, Peru and other places voted Coprospist nations to influence Japanese and Co-Prosperity Sphere trade and political influence as well as Japanese Settlement. The same was true for the Coprospist Orientalist Party in the Pacific States after the division of the United States.

Soviet Comintern View: To the Soviet Union and the Comintern, the Coporspist were the savage hordes of old, Huns and Mongols alike that came invading from the east to swap across Siberia into Europe. Funny enough it was reflecting of the fear many Axis Central Powers had from the Soviet's Red Army's own Siberian Forces. However the Russians and other Asian and European Soviet Socialist Republics and ethnics feared that another wave of Coprospist Asian Invaders might colonize east and central Asia from them to take it for themselves.

Namo/Faro View: To the Axis Central Powers, the Coprospist were the Yellow Savages that opposed the divine European rule over Asia and Africa. Primitives that opposed the guiding European hand to modernize their primitive societies and cultures with European enlightenment and modern colonial government structures. The anti-European, anti-American, anti-Colonial and anti-Imperialist propaganda of the Coprospist states, as well as their support for local, native independence movements opposing the American and European Colonies meant that the Coprospists quickly not only had a trade rivalry with powers outside the Co-Prosperity Sphere, but also growing numbers of Proxy Wars.
 
Is there a translation of the caption?
This leaflet depicts finely dressed British soldiers about to blow a cannon ball through an Indian prisoner. This atrocity propaganda was often used by the British, so it is interesting to see it used against them. It alludes to the accusations that the British unleashed a reign of terror to suppress the “Mutiny” of 1857. Allegedly, they would blow people apart with cannons and hang them from tree branches. This leaflet reminds the target audience of such acts and exhorts them to take revenge. The text is:

When will you get an opportunity to take revenge, if not now? Do not forget the British practice of blowing apart Indians after tying them to mouth of a cannon's barrel.

[Note] The Indian Rebellion of 1857, also known as the First War of Indian Independence was a prolonged period of armed uprisings in different parts of India against the British occupation. The insurrection was triggered in part when the British introduced new rifle cartridges rumored to be greased with oil made from the fat of animals. The fat of cows was taboo to Hindus while Muslims were repelled by pig fat. In fact, this was just the most recent in a number of Indian protests against British rule. By May 1857 the rebellion turned into what was considered a full-fledged war in the affected regions. A peace treaty was signed on 8 July 1858. The victorious British then allegedly adopted the old Mughal punishment for mutiny and sentenced rebels were tied to the mouth of cannons and blown to pieces.

makes sense Japan would make use of this in propoganda, methinks.

Yeah, it would probably be like the world of In the Presence of Mine Enemies, where doctrine-wise the Reich and the Empire view each other as inferior, but in practice no one really cares and either side's culture is appreciated and plenty of tourists regularly go back and forth.

Chapter 690: Kiriwana Islands and Woodlark Island Landings
Chapter 690: Trobriand/ Kirawana Islands and Woodlark Island Landings

With the exception of some small, minor frontline changes, the fighting on New Guinea (Niugini/Niu Gini/ Papua), Guadalcanal (Isatabu) and Malaita stayed the same. Because of this the Imperial Japanese Army in the Area under command of General Tomitarō Horii prepared a plan together with the Imperial Japanese Navy, to use their momentary position on the Solomon Sea to further expand their defense perimeter and forward base systems. To do so naval landings on Kiriwina Island and Woodlark Island were planned to use the situation as long as it lasted. The main goal was to use both islands and their coral reefs to flank the Allied position in East Papua, by denying their ships passage along those island, while also preventing the Allies use of them as air bases. Instead the Japanese would use this forward airbases to further increase their own naval plane range based on islands and to force Allied supply routes further southwards, making them much longer, even those to New Guinea itself. One of the major problems of the plan as the fact that the Japanese were not quit hundred percent certain that they had destroyed all Allied (mainly American Carriers) in the area. Further more the Allied airfields in New Guinea (Horanda, North Borio, Schwimmer, Turnbull, Gurney and Port Moresby) could cover the area and destroy their invasion forces. Therefore the Japanese had to use their own airfields on New Britain (Arawe and Gasmata) and the Solomon Islands (Kahili and Kara on Bougainville, Barakoma on Vella Lavella, Ondonga, Munda and Segi on New Georgia island) to cover the operation without their own remaining carrier force as best as they could. To do so however they needed transports and after the last losses of invasion, reinforce and supply transports and tankers against the Allied airplanes and ships, they were stretched thin, at least until new reinforcements would arrive from the Home Island. Instead the South Seas Force headquartered in Rabaul who oversaw this Imperial Japanese Army Operation under command and control of the Imperial Japanese Navy had another solution; use Japanese Destroyers. Light and Heavy Cruisers as well as two Battlecruisers and two battleships for the operation, flanked by four submarines. For their areal support 180 fighters and 60 bombers were placed to be a part of the operation. Supported by the South Seas Detachment one Division, considering of two Independent Brigades with around 18,600 soldiers involved in the landing force of the operation under command of General Hatazō Adachi.

The commanding Japanese General Hatazō Adachi was concerned about the operation, as the use of no transport ships limited the numbers of heavy guns, artillery, anti-air, anti-tank and other heavy weapons and equipment. This meant that their original plan to quickly establish airfields on those islands would be quit delayed. Therefore General Adachi believed that their overall operation would take much longer then originally planned, but much to the surprise of all Japanese forces involved, there were none American or Allied forces yet on those islands. The Japanese bombers who targeted Port Moresby and other Allied airbases in the area as a distraction helped the Allied radar to overlook much of the nearly too massive Japanese landing operation on the two small islands at the night between the 5th and 6th November 1942. Reconnaissance quickly realized that there were no enemy forces and defensive facilities were soon established by the landed Japanese forces. Until the 14th November further Japanese reinforcements and finally heavy equipment arrives, slowly supporting the landed forces in their building of defensive structures and the two planned airfields. The one on Woodlark quickly was expanded by a parallel runway, while first anti-aircraft and artillery peaces were installed. Because the Japanese shortages of transports, some of these weapons were directly taken from the cruisers and destroyers partaking in the operation. On Kiriwina a normal airfield was constructed. Small boat and ship bases for destroyers/ cruisers, torpedo boats and float planes were also established. Besides some reconnaissance and a few occasional bombing runs, the Allies/ Americans did not outright contest these landing under General Hatazō Adachi, as they had much more serious front-lines to care about and simply redirected their convoys and supply routes for now, while preparing counter-operations and their own invasions.
 
The Fatherland Party will go over SO well with Austria-Hungary, France and possibly Italy (Italians might don't like AH but would still prefer it to a German behemoth... and the party might make noises about Tyrol). As well as Denmark, Baltic States, Poland and Belgium but those matter less.

I bet in AH, there's a party which wants to recreate the Holy Roman Empire of old (ie. a German federation of autonomous states led by the Habsburgs, or even outright annexing Germany to Austria, turning the Empire into Germany-Hungary). I mean, Sadowa has to be avenged and the Prussian upstarts put in their place.
 
Yeah some of these parties are truely messed up and the rest of the ACP C-PS will not look very much better in terms of parties TTL (nor will the rest of the world). :evilsmile:
 
France : Hey, French territories once included England (because Normandy was a vassal of France), north of Italy, Switzerland, and western Germany, and Québec and Acadia and Louisiana (ie. US Midwest), and Indochina...
We should walk in the steps of Louis XIV and Napoleon the Great, instead of cowering behind Germany.

Spain : South America is OURS. It's high time we put the REBELS in their place.
Oh and Portugal is just part of Spain, and since Aragon is Spanish, so is Sicily. Also, the Yellow Monkeys and the Anglos might have taken Filipinos but it's ours, their very name came from a Spanish King didn't it ?

Britain : Ireland is English. Sure, the Red Popists of the IRA have booted us out but it was only because we were too lenient on them, we should have remembered that the Irish are Monkeys. And well, it's never too late to correct this mistake, right ?
Speaking of Monkeys, something should be done about India and Oceania. The Indians are a Beastly race but at least they were loyal until the perfidious Japs came, and now we should save the Indians from this yoke (and put them back under our paternal but firm guidance), as well as do something for the poor Whites of Australia who are swamped by Yellows.
Closer to home, England should get back to her NATURAL borders. Aquitaine, Poitou, Aquitaine, Gascony, Brittany, Normandy, Limousin, Auvergne... Didn't they all belong to the glorious Plantagenet, before the Perfid Marianne drove them out ? And let's not forget our brothers in Hannover...

Austria-Hungary : The Habsburgs are the rightful heirs of the Roman Empire, they once ruled Europe and America.
So, let's put the Hohenzollern upstarts in their place and unite Germany under her TRUE dynasty.
Of course, Italians, Slavs and Greeks aren't Aryans, they're barely Whites. We all know that Europe stops at Naples, and Slavs are the descendants of Attila's hordes, who came all the way from China to rape and plunder. So, Poland, Ukraine and the Balkans should join our glorious democratic federation, as True Equals, to benefit from our enlightenment.

Germany : All the Germanic race should join us.
France... Well, the northern French are Germanic Aryans (though they forgot it), and the southern French are mere Latins. Northern France should join her Germanic sisters. And so should England, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Belgium and Netherlands obviously. At first we'll have to reeducate their population, until they remember their true heritage. It's for their own good.
Austria-Hungary... A weak country that gives equal rights to everyone, ruled by the dynasty that foolishly caused and lost the Great War. Austria is German, and the other nations aren't worthy of independence or equality.

Italy : We are the reborn Roman Empire. The light of Rome will shine, once again, from Britain to Germany to Iberia to Morocco to Sudan to Mesopotamia.

The Ottoman Empire : the Caliphate has risen from the ashes, and the days of conquest are back. To Vienna ! To Crimea ! To Sicily ! To Andalus ! To Mali ! To Iran, India, Xinjiang and Central Asia ! The Crescent will float above us from the Far East to the Atlantic, and the Christian infidels will pay.

Greece : We're the True Heir (TM) of Rome.

Russia : We're the True True Heir (TM) of Rome, by the way of Constantinople. And Constantinople we will finally take from the Mohammedans.
But let's not forget Finland (the REBELS need to be taught a lesson), as well as uniting the Slavs and Orthodoxs, and gaining our Indian Ocean ports, and Alaska and California and Manchuria and Mongolia and Xinjiang.
The RODINA is back. It will rule the land and the waves for a Thousand Years.

Poland : Now is the time for Pilsudski's dream, the Miedzymordze.

Mongolia : May the Spirit of the Great Chinggis Khan guide us, into our new era of glory.

The Rump US : All of this is a test. God has given the American people the Mantle of the Chosen People. Like the Israelites before us (and by the way, they LOST their mantle by killing the Christ, WE are the Chosen ones), we have tribulations to go through.
To prove our worth to God, we shouldn't forget about the MANIFEST DESTINY.
MURICA FUCK YEAH.
