The rise of Trumpism in the west has been beneficial to anyone that is one of the fringe. Being anti immigration and pro protectionism was originally and to some extent it still is frowned upon. The liberal hegemony pushes out nationalism and reactionary thoughts out of the media and academia . Mainline protestantism and catholicism has adopted liberal values in order to keep church pews filled. But liberal churches are still emptying.
But to be quite honest what passes as conservatism in the west is much better. Donald Trump and Nigel Farage have done wonders for the right in the past few years. Nationalism is now socially acceptable on the right. Even if the right wing trotskyists (neocons) are only tolerating them for the next 4-8 years.
What is needed is something more extreme that appeals to both intellectuals and working class folks. The left might be weak in terms of political power at the moment. Academia , media , and finance is still very much behind them. The neo conservative and tea party types are dying slowly. Either trumpism becomes a more solid philosophy or something new and extreme needs to replace it. One of the things the right should do is usurp the left’s control over the environmentalism issue.
The right wing needs to make good use of pressure groups and Passivism as well as electing implicitly fringe candidates. Pressure groups could be minor parties,activists, and online movements. The right needs to create connections in their communities and become successful. In order to become worthy of power.
The right wing in it’s improved form will need a new pantheon of thinkers. Adam Smith , Milton Friedman , and John Locke need to be put in the trash bin. Alain de Benoist ,Mencius moldbug, Robert Filmer, Julius Evola, Pat Buchanan, and any distributist thinker would be worth a look. The right needs to experience a dark enlightenment. The future of the right won’t be found in classical liberalism and neoconservatism. It’s time to evolve.
