Your premise and understanding of Neo-Reaction is poor, but your proposed defensive actions are sufficiently thoughtful to at least warrant comment. here goes.
1. Anti-union sentiment exists in part because unions failed to successfully combat international trade agreements, market shifts, and entrepreneurial competition with established unions. Despite assertions to the contrary, no person may be forced to hire a union employee, even if the alternative is criminal punishment up to and including death. There are men among the Silicon Valley who would make that choice if that was the only one available. Other will simply leave union-enforcing jurisdictions for other jurisdictions. Exit is a key principle of Neo-reaction.
2. Collectivist thought relies upon progressive change to assert power. Neo-reaction, in contrast, advocates for first-principles legal standards and ancient and established law. Were your suggestion that liberal leadership slow change, most neo-reactionaries would respond by offering their established proscription of rapid change – even arguing that the shift from modern society to a neo-reactionary society should be gradual. You cannot defeat an argument your opponent created by adopting that argument.
3. Intersectional thought is divisive, not uniting. It is already wrecking the feminist movement. If you are serious about opposing Neo-reaction, you should oppose – not support – intersectional theory. Observe the deafening silence from the Dark Enlightenment regarding intersectionality. That isn’t an inability to combat the argument. It’s a recognition that intersectional theory can kill feminism, an outcome neo-reactionaries will applaud.
The “Dark Enlightenment” or Neo-Reactionary movement (“NRx”) has been the object of curiosity and condescension as its most high profile writers and adherents in the tech industry attract more mainstream coverage. The perils of the NRx’s sexist, racist, and hyper-capitalistic techno-utopian thought are evident to most observers. Rather than write off the movement as a nerdy non-entity that is beneath one’s concern, it is important to see how this reactionary strain is uniquely positioned to cause severe damage in the event of a social crisis that leaves people open to anti-liberal beliefs. This is a situation which has been made possible by the persistent libertarian ideology of elitist tech sector employees, whose material advantages leave them uniquely positioned to spread reactionary thought and practice. As remote as the possibility may seem, the potential explosion in popularity of NRx ideas gives a strong incentive to begin laying down frameworks of opposition against them today in the form of labor organization and…
