The Reactionary Left
Posted on June 18, 2016

The word “reactionary” has become synonymous with the Right entirely due to the Left applying it to anyone not in the Cult. The Left does not use it much anymore, as new abracadabra phrases have taken its place, but read radical writings of the 60’s and the word turns up all over the place. The claim is that the opponents of the Left are not working from a basis of facts and reason. Instead they are merely reacting from emotion and therefore they can be dismissed. A reactionary is as credible as an hysteric.

I wish all the alt-right and "conservatarian" types who have infiltrated the libertarian movement and claim falsely/confusedly to be libertarian would instead honestly self-identify as reactionary.

The word "libertarian" is not a synonym for "anti-establishment". We really do have noticeably distinct first principles from radicals, progressives, moderates, conservatives, and reactionaries.
