In response to the interview of alt-right leader Richard Spencer where he discusses, among other things, his goal of reestablishing the Roman Empire, IPR-X contributor Kareem Caliente, who is of Lebanese and Italo-Argentine descent, had this to say:
I share Spencer’s vision of reestablishing the Roman Empire. I’d love to see Iberia, Gaul, Italy, Dalmatia, Greece, Asia Minor, the Levant, Egypt, and Northern Africa all joined back together under a strong central government based in Rome and Constantinople. This is how peace can be achieved in the region and Islam neutralized. I dream of myself as the emperor, a just yet firm emperor like Justinian the Great. Renovatio imperii becomes a reality in modern times. It’s just a dream, but fun to think about.
