The Early DaysEdit
The Righteous Fist was founded by Seixas and Thizzland on 12/9/07. Together, they sought to form a leftist alliance based on the respective ideals of direct democracy and anarchism. Their first treaty was with the Communist Party of Cybernations and The Righteous Fist continued to prosper by reaching such milestones as 50 members and establishing a protectorate with Old Guard.
Growth and DevelopmentEdit
The Righteous Fist was a fast growing alliance and attracted many members because of its dedication to protecting the rights of all its members and its more relaxed approach to the game. Although the alliance was composed of 100 or more members during this period, the growth of the alliance was fairly stagnant in terms of nation strength.
The Righteous Fist fought in the War of the Coalition when they came to the defense of their close ally, Old Guard. They fought well and proved valuable because they were in a position to attack many of the targets that its allies could not. The war proved a success for The Righteous Fist and they came out looking to revamp an obsolete charter and become stronger than ever.
Merger with The InternationalEdit
After the war, The Righteous Fist still experienced fairly stagnant growth. A merger with Strength And Honor did not cure the problem and many members were deleted through inactivity. Around this time period, The Righteous Fist signed an MDoAP with the Communist Party of Cybernations and joined the Cadre bloc. However, some members felt that the alliance was slowly dying. There was a proposal made by the Communist Party of Cybernations to form a large leftist alliance via a merger. The Righteous Fist was invited to join the new alliance. While many members enthusiastically approved of the idea, a sizable number of the members were against it because they did not wish to align themselves with communism or break any treaty with their very close ally, Old Guard. In the end, around half the members left to join The International on 1/20/2009 while the remaining half sought to defend their beloved alliance and to demonstrate their friendship to Old Guard.
The Righteous Fist is a direct democracy and is no longer a leftist alliance. The alliance aims to increase their alliance strength via nation development rather than through recruitment. Recently,The Righteous Fist once again passed 800K NS and hopes to continue to show that their alliance is far from dead.
