According to Google Trends, if one were to do a search on “alt right,” the interest in that movement has exponentiated while if one were to do a search on “zeitgeist movement,” interest in that movement has declined. Now, I understand there hasn’t been any direct confrontation or objections coming from proponents/supporters of the Alt Right but I am just curious as to what supporters of the Zeitgeist Movement would say in the event there would be criticism coming from those folks.
Just for people’s information, the Alt-right isn’t the exact same thing as Libertarianism. I believe the following Youtube video does an excellent job of showing the difference:
-A desire to return to monarchy, aristocracy, and/or feudalism
-An admiration of fascism
Ethnic nationalism, usually white or (less commonly) Asian
-Racialism (usually framed as "race realism" or "human biodiversity")
-A belief in biological determinism
-A belief that ethnic uniformity increases social capital[wp]
-Frequently, though not always, anti-Semitism
Hostility to feminism, multiculturalism, and progressivism in all its forms, especially democracy and equality; in their metaphor, the "Cathedral"
-Normative arguments based on evolutionary psychology
-Pick-up artist jargon
-Men’s rights activism
Austrian School of economics
-Old time social Darwinism
-Many are former Ron Paul supporters
Traditionalist Catholicism, often
-Or a more secularized cultural Christianity
-Alternatively, some form of neopaganism, Satanism, or occultist woo of the Julius Evola variety
-Or a religious view that sees the Singularity as God. This dovetails with transhumanism below. See also Roko's basilisk.
Transhumanism and other technological utopias (the odd idea out)
Michael Anissimov proposes the following six tenets as the core beliefs of neoreaction:
1). People are not equal. They never will be. We reject equality in all its forms.
2). Right is right and left is wrong.
3). Hierarchy is basically a good idea.
4). Traditional sex roles are basically a good idea.
5). Libertarianism is retarded.
6). Democracy is irredeemably flawed and we need to do away with it.
