What does it mean to be a Praetorian?

A person should feel pride in his choice to become a praetorian! We praetorians promote Liberty and lend a helping hand to our communities and our great nation. Praetorians also help other praetorians by standing with them and by them in all situations. Think of the Praetorian National Society as a large family, looking out for each other at all times.

What exactly is a Praetorian?

In ancient history the Praetorian Guard was a special force of bodyguards used by Roman Emperors. The members of the Praetorian Guard were among the most skilled and celebrated warriors in ancient history. It was a habit of many Roman generals to choose from the ranks a private force of soldiers to act as bodyguards. In common language, the phrase "praetorian guard(s)" designates an exclusive, unconditionally loyal group personally attached to powerful people, especially dictators such as Napoleon I's Imperial Guard, Adolph Hitler SS troops or Romania's former communist leader Ceausescu's Securitata (secret police). In modern day terminology, such as here on this site, Praetorian National Society refers to "Praetorian" as a group of persons of intelligence, skill and intellect that choose to ban together to promote the belief of "Liberty To All". The Society is composed of normal everyday people with family's, jobs and problems of their own, who through unity with the Society may help to relieve their problems and those of others.

Statement of Principles

As Praetorians, we seek a world of liberty; a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values for the benefit of others.

We believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.

Consequently, we defend each person's right to engage in any activity that is peaceful and honest, and welcome the diversity that freedom brings. The world we seek to build is one where individuals are free to follow their own dreams in their own ways, without interference from government or any authoritarian power.
