So I would first like to apologize to you because it was from my publication on the NR group that this quarrel between Consul Philo and the enemy Sulla took place. However, I welcome this because I believe that these debates are useful for the future of the Community, or our communities more precisely, and of the Cultus Deorum Romanorum in particular. It is for the CDR that I fight, and that I address my opinions, to you my brothers and sisters.
I believe that the Brutus Censor's Note is morally justified and good, but it is too easy, if I may say so, it morally exonerates your Republic, whereas it is from you that the quarrel started, citizens Philo And Maecenas, who took Sulla's side, taking advantage of one of his interventions. I do not forget that you voted the Law Iunia, which makes Sulla an enemy of your republic. I do not know Sulla, and I am willing to believe how bad it has been for the NR and for the whole community of the Romans. But to enact laws "anti" someone or something is for me the height of Hybris.
I know you have real reasons for voting these laws, and it was the vote that decided.
The problem is deeper for me, it touches directly on the concept and principle of virtual republics, which for me and with all my respect can not reflect the reality of one or more communities of cultors, or simple enthusiasts Of ancient Rome. Institutions, laws, magistrates' titles as "realistic" / "revivalists" may not have a real reality and legitimacy in the society / community of the twenty-first century. Not the way they were created, I think, whether it's NovaRoma at the start, the little RPR, or the beautiful RomanRepublic, where the wills of dynamic, enthusiastic, and honest people are very commendable. I'm sorry but it's still playing roles.
The (virtual) laws of the revivalist republics can not become real, effective. It's a lure.
Another aspect is already very difficult to manage a community in a country, so imagine in several! (Look at NR, with a head in the USA, another in Bulgaria), it is therefore essential to have a highly structured organization, based on legal functioning, and not institutions that have been missing for 1600 years.
Revivalist institutions do not have sufficient legal and legal basis to allow the perpetuation of such an organization, especially at the international level, as you know.
It is for this reason that evil, egotist, ambitious people regularly seize these revivalist institutions because they are illusory, they attract vain spirits, defile them, divide the community, they kill the Eternal Republic , The one that can not be reproduced, the true one, that which is in each of us all.
For if I am so critical of virtual republics, it means that for me they are killing the true republic, the one that existed, the one that exists in us in a sacred and not political way.
with all my friendship and respect to the Quirites.
