Jonism is the official state political ideology of the Democratic People's Republic of Jonitoria and is the political thesis of "The Great Comrade," General Marshal Jonathan W. Huehner.
Since 2009, Jonism has since been elaborated upon by General Marshal Huehner into a set of principles used by the state to justify policy decisions. These principles clearly outline a need for total independence in decision-making, a godless and irreligious state, the advancement of a planned economy, the abolition of classes and the critique of social cliques, the establishment of "industrial armies" and the expansion of communism.
Jonism was originally devised as General Marshal Huehner's overall critique of social cliques (goth, emo, prep, jock, etc.) and the stressing need for individualism, something General Marshal Huehner felt was lacking in the current communist movement. This belief in individualism was fueled by General Marshal Huehner's experiences in school through the feeling of alienation and rejection by other peers. General Marshal Huehner felt that social cliques were a root cause of this prejudice and sought the need to criticize and, at the same time, emphasize the need for self-guidance in a collectivized society.
Ideology and practical application
According to General Marshal Huehner's speech, On Implementing and Expanding the Ideals of Jonism, Jonism can be easily summed up in three passages:
- Criticize and abolish social cliques; humanity needs to overcome this obstacle in order to advance itself.
- Individuality needs to be emphasized and voiced strongly; independence from other wayward groups is a must.
- Plan ahead and ready one's self for the future; future needs require planning, no matter how big or small the need is.
Jonism maintains that while the state must be self-reliant and completely independent, the people should continue to help one another and overcome any and all problems as a team. Official DPRJ records state that the Jonism ideology was initially applied during the early days of the First Jonitorian Five-Year Economic Plan and this kind of thinking later created the Jonitorian Work System, the state's own method for providing incentives for workers and maintaining good working conditions.
Relations with other ideologies
In 2009, the Communist Constitution of the DPRJ made Jonism the official state ideology and cited Marxism-Leninism, Trotskyism, Maoism, Guevarism, Ho Chi Minh Ideology and Kimilsungism (Juche) as contributing factors in the creation of the Jonism ideology (the non-communist philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche is also mentioned as an influence).
State publications on Jonsim
The DPRJ has published several pamphlets describing the Jonism philosophy and freely distributes this written information throughout the country. Note: This is only a list of the known pamphlets to exist.
