The alt right, the alt alt right, and the alt alt alt right

(try saying that five times fast)

Note: this post is designed both as advice for NRx and Classical Reaction, as well as an intro for anyone who happens to find this blog by looking into the alt right.

The alt right, a loose online network of what can best be described as people who are to the right of both Republican and Libertarian parties, has recently come into the national stage by being two steps removed from Trump. The focus of the majority of the alt right is on the question of race realism.

Next of all, there’s NRx, which I’ve dubbed the alt alt right. I’m not really sure what the essence of NRx is, but the promotion of a corporatist style of monarchism seems to be a substantial part of it.

My advice for NRx would be to cling to the label “alt right” as strongly as possible. If, as is probable, the alt right will become mainstream, then it’s in the interests of NRx to associate itself with it, and thereby come into the national stage in the same way it did.

Next, there’s Classical or Religious Reaction. Check out anything written on the Orthosphere other than by Alan Roebuck* to get an idea of what this is about, or for that matter look at the individual blogs of the authors there. In summary, Classical Reaction involves support for the order that existed before the French and American Revolutions. Monarchism, Antidisestablishmentarianism, etc. I also wrote a piece about it here, and it is my own view.

For us, we need to maintain close ties with NRx, and likewise identify with the alt right label. We don’t have near the numbers to directly attempt a “coup” in the alt right, so our best bet (still a extremely long shot for becoming mainstream, though still the best foreseeable path) would be to associate with NRx, since we both use the “reactionary” label.

*Note, for both those who know what I’m talking about and those who don’t, that I’m not trying to insult Alan, only observing the fact that he is a classical liberal, so his views do not represent those of the other Orthosphere writers.
