ASILW - Victorianism

this is one of the political personality types of the PPQ


The English "Victorian" social tradition combined a recognition of, and acceptance of, hierarchy with self dependence as a moral imperative. This political philosphy tolerates elitism in the pursuit of individualism. Victorians expressed the need to “keep a stiff upper lip”, relying on charity rather than a social safety net, and opposing (at least overtly) intervention in the economy. Deep and sincere religious belief is often part of this belief system, as well as an obligation of elites to serve the poor, though voluntarily. The arts were used predominantly for moral expressions.
Military service is respected and admired as one of the few civic obligations that is accepted as inevitable.

typical modern forms

In terms of today's politics, the ASILW often allies with right-wing politics of social conservatives and classic liberals. In power, they often alienate libertarian allies.
