    Radical does not have a left-or-right orientation. It means in my mind an orientation far outside the norm.

    In my opinion, the current ideologues of the "right" are absolutely NOT reactionaries, because they are trying to create a world that never existed in the first place.

    They are actively trying to implement a radical new oligarchic theocracy that is not attempting to conserve something, nor reactively return to a past state, but to institute a radical new political state of being.

      it means knowing what the actual conditions are, without the beguilement fostered upon us by the msm, religion, clan, etc., all of which exist to prevent the masses from recognizing their subordination and dedication to the profit motive of the owners

    •  So no minimum wage (1+ / 0-)

      no worker safety rules, no laws about negotiating with unions in good faith, no regs on bankers, etc. - those never existed?

      What they want may never have all existed at the same time, but parts of each have at one time or another, so I'll continue to call them reactionaries.

      liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
