Styx: The Post-Alt-Right Are Communists

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I haven’t seen anyone convert to communism.

Over the past few years, it is true though that the post-Alt-Right has become increasingly critical of neoliberalism and free-market capitalism and skeptical of the benefits of aligning with the liberal Right. This shift has been gaining momentum in the twilight of the Trump presidency.

Here are a few reasons why this has happened:

  • Trump ran as a nationalist and populist to get elected, but has governed as a mainstream conservative. He has delivered standard neoliberal policies like huge tax cuts, massive deregulation and increases in guest worker programs. He put Gary Cohn and Larry Kudlow in charge of the economy. Inevitably, he has lost ground with more moderate swing voters.
  • Trump’s signature issue in the 2016 election was immigration. Since becoming president, he failed to build the wall. He has proposed an amnesty for DREAMers. He has presided over an increase in illegal immigration and guest worker programs. He has failed to deliver E-Verify. He has gone on record in favor of a merit-based immigration system which would bring in more legal immigrants “in the largest numbers ever.” Trump sold out his base to business interests.
  • “Pride Month” and the mainstreaming of homosexuality and 24/7 corporate shilling for LGBTQ radicalism has broadly alienated social conservatives who have become more critical of free-market capitalism in recent years. This is a broader trend on the Right.
  • After four years of Trump, it has become impossible to ignore the Jewish oligarchs who supported him have gotten almost everything they wanted.
  • Above all else, the post-Alt-Right’s bitter experience with monopolies and corporate tyranny in the Trump era has made the movement much more critical of free-market capitalism and supportive of government regulation than it was before.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fact that the civic nationalism of the MAGA movement was fake. The liberal Right is based on selfishness, extreme individualism and materialism which are at odds with our values and beliefs. It is hard to believe that these people are “nationalists” when they are the 25% of the country who doesn’t give a shit about anyone else.
  • Philosophically, the Alt-Right was always based on ethnonationalism, which is based on collectivism and altruism, not radical individualism. The erosion of identity and the loss of order, cohesion, continuity, stability, decency and normalcy in liberal societies with consumer capitalist economies has become so glaring it is impossible to ignore.
  • Natural conservatism is fundamentally incompatible with conservative liberalism and libertarianism for the above reasons. By taking liberty to such extremes, the result is a permanent state of social revolution. This is a feature, not a bug, of liberalism.
  • After 20 years in the wilderness and two Republican presidents who have been a total disaster, the post-Alt-Right is ready to move on. After Trump, the movement has become much wiser to how conservatives exploit racial and cultural grievances to further their own agenda.
  • Trump has lost ground with moderate populist leaning independent voters across the board for similar reasons.
  • Finally, there is no reason to believe that empowering the liberal Right (conservative liberals and libertarians) moves us any closer to our goals as there is no solution to any of our problems within those paradigms. We have different values and beliefs. Electing more Republicans who do not share our beliefs and goals gets us nowhere. The “spontaneous order” that libertarians support ends up being a Jewish oligarchy that fosters cultural degeneration.

This isn’t “communism.”

Nationalists and communists are both collectivists, but the similarities end there. The thing that drives the post-Alt-Right is the loss of identity and ethnic and cultural cohesion in liberal societies. There is nothing new about this rightwing critique of capitalism. It has just gained more traction.

It is true that there are some people who are beginning to wonder if maybe communism is more conservative than liberalism and free-market capitalism. China, North Korea and Vietnam are ethnostates. Former communist states in Eastern Europe like Hungary and Poland are also much more resistant to “Open Society” liberalism and cultural capitalism. The Soviet system was more collectivist and authoritarian and seems more congenial to nationalism than the ideology of the liberal West.

I’m open to persuasion on the topic. Feel free to convince me that a liberal social order with a free-market capitalist economy DOES NOT lead to extreme individualism, selfishness, materialism and atheism and end in deracination, cultural degeneration, consumerism and oligarchy. The liberatarians and conservatives who are screaming “Duginist” and “communist” are just sidestepping this critique.
