Work the article needs[edit]

This just got linked from New York Magazine as the explanation of "neoreactionary". I checked our article over and none of it's wrong, but it could do with a polish and brush-up.

Stuff that occurs to me (which I may or may not get around to):

  • digest that huge list of external links into actual references!
  • date of "The Dark Enlightenment" by Nick Land (late 2012? early 2013?)
  • split out an Alt-right article, which isn't quite the same thing as neoreaction
  • a section on the broader Dark Enlightenment (maybe a separate article, maybe not - the DE is broader than NRx, but e.g. Nick Land still treats them as synonymous)
  • rewrite the present-day Yarvin section a bit

SoDa fountain[edit]

For one example of the two camps going at it, see this article from the Discovery News website where they criticize the alt-right for drinking from the SoDa fountain.

Who linked to Evolution News?[edit]

The site is a creationist site disguised as a trustworthy scientific source.

I removed this: "For one example of the two camps going at it, see this article from the Discovery News website where they criticize the alt-right for drinking from the SoDa fountain."

They did not link to Discovery news, they linked to a different source which has a similar name. It is not said in the sentence that the linked site is creationist propaganda. This is Discovery News's twitter and their website.ClickerClock (talk) 07:25, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

I've made the link a bit clearer. (This is one of the things that would be hived off to an alt-right article.) - David Gerard (talk) 00:10, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Inherent contradiction[edit]

Surely you can be either 'neo' or 'reactionary' but not both? Anna Livia (talk) 21:07, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Name Not Awesome Enough[edit]

Nobody looked at the term "Dark Enlightenment" and put together "Endarkenment"? Seriously? Fits their goals better, I think. 108.131.97.160 (talk) 05:32, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

Far-rightists aren't exactly known for their cleverness. þe olꝺe Ꞅƿɽyᵹᵹyna (ꞇalc) (conċꞃybs) @ 05:34, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

"Their advantages over the Moldbuggian strain are shorter blog posts and an actual sense of humour (such as it is)."[edit]

Unqualified Reservations has a lot of humor. It probably accounts for a lot of its popularity. Pardon me sir (talk) 12:17, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
