    Bonapartism is an Authoritarian Right (by today's standards) but for the time it was left for the modern Civil Code and equality before the law. It was a culturally center ideology, located near the border with the authoritarian left quadrant, supervening from Napoleon Bonaparte and his followers and successors. in the strict sense, it aims to establish an imperial regime in France at the head of which would be placed a member of the family of Napoleon Bonaparte, and in the broadest sense, it aims to establish a nation-state with a strong and centralized executive which is authoritarian and largely undemocratic, but Republican in essence and which regularly consults the will of the people through plebiscites. Bonapartism is a very big tent ideology; Napoleon III once commented on the ideological diversity of his court, saying "The Empress is a Reactcross.png Legitimist, Morny is an Conmon.png Orléanist, Prince Napoleon is a Republicanismpix.png Republican, and I myself am a Moncom.png Socialist. There is only one Bonaparte.png Bonapartist, Arist.png Persigny - and he is mad!"


    After the death of Jack.png Maximilien Robespierre, the French Directory controlled France. This government was extremely unpopular, so a young Corsican boy by the name of Napoleon Bonaparte overthrew the government and proclaimed himself the First Consul. Then eventually, as he protected France and expanded his borders, he gained more and more popularity and therefore crowned himself as Emperor.


    Bonapartism supports the Enlightenment and supports spreading its values everywhere, however; he is also a pragmatist and thus doesn't support too much radical change.

    He wants to usurp the throne of Spain & really hates Russia for some reason.

    Bonapartism as a pejorative

    In modern times, the term Bonaparte.png "Bonapartism" has been used more generally for a political movement that advocates an Sec.png authoritarian centralized state, with a Auto.png strongman charismatic leader based on anti-elitist rhetoric, army support, as well as conservatism. Within leftists circles, Bonapartism is used to describe counter-revolutionary authoritarian leaders that use leftist, anti-capitalist, or anti-imperialist rhetoric as means to gain support from the masses but once in power rule like an emperor for life and revert the gains of the revolution to benefit themselves and a new caste of elites.

    Bonapartism is often seen as the precursor to various Fash.png Fascist ideologies espoused by the likes of Mussolini.png Benito Mussolini, Hitler.png Adolf Hitler, and BritFash.png Oswald Mosley.

    Leaders and political figures. that aren't clearly left or right may be referred to as Bonapartists. This includes US senator and governor of Louisiana Long.png Huey Long, Argentine dictator JuanPeron.png Juan Perón, former Prime Minister of Thailand and exiled billionaire, Thaksin.png Thaksin Shinawatra, etc. All aforementioned politicians combined policies that are associated with both the left and right while using authoritarian tactics to maintain power.

    Bonapartism is often used by many leftists including Marxists, Awaj.png anarchists, Trot.png Trotskyists, and left communists, to describe anti-communist authoritarian socialists such as Nasser2.png Gamal Abdel Nasser, Burmasoc.png Ne Win, Hussein.png Saddam Hussein, Gaddaficap.png Muammar Gaddafi, Hafez al-Assad.png Hafez al-Assad, Neo-Baath.png Bashar al-Assad, Fatah.png Yasser Arafat, etc, who all explicitly rejected Marxist class struggle in favor of Corptism.png class collaborationism and actively banned or persecuted domestic left-wing movements while also being allied to Cball-USSR.png the Soviet Union, which some would argue was itself an elitist Bonapartist regime of its own.

    Cball-Russia.png Russian President Putin.png Vladimir Putin is sometimes described as a Bonapartist leader with a Napoleon Complex due to his ability to gain support from people on the left and the far-right alike, despite maintaining and strengthening Russia's oligarchic system for his own benefit at the expense of the Russian (and Ukrainian) working class.
