The current crisis of civilization demands a careful replacement of failing Western political institutions.
The Hestia Society is a neoreactionary fraternal network dedicated to developing the virtues of statesmanship needed for this refounding.
Our aim, in a single word, is "Restoration".
The deep social problems of the modern world stem from the failure of the progressive worldview and democratic system, and of the artificial economy and social system they have created.
We envision a revival of statecraft, the restoration of our civilization under a unified executive authority, an alternate more organic mode of civilization, and America taking proud responsibility for her empire.
This restoration can happen only if we build a viable, living, alternative tradition of statecraft.
See neoreaction.net for more.
Our network includes chapters in major North American cities:
Our chapters meet regularly to pursue Restoration from their local context.
Restoration is an intellectual project first: mapping the realities of power in the modern system, mining history for statecraft insight, and studying the future of civilization and the American Empire.
Our full-time researchers and wider intellectual community are answering these key questions with a systematic research program.
Future Statesmen, and the men of action who will bring about Restoration, will need to be well trained.
We are developing an academy and training system to fill that need. We use a preliminary version for our membership training.
Our private membership is carefully selected for exceptional talent, good character, deep dedication to the Restoration project, and ability to contribute time and resouces.
