The Radical Party is a political organization in the space controlled by House Lionheart. Basically, it wants to abolish the rule of the Lionhearts and introduce the rule by a republic and expansion of democracy. It's program includes abolition of the rule of the Prince and Princess, dissolution of the House of Aristocrats, and removing the status of the United God Movement as the state religion. The Radicals are divided over whether their section of the Known Universe should unite with the United Republic of Earth or establish an independent republic. Radicals who favor the latter course favor a parliamentary system dominated by the House of Commons. The moderate leadership of the Radical Party favors peaceful methods, but there are truly radical Radicals who favor using violence, including geurrilla warfare and even terrorism to overthrow Lionheart rule.
