    (Redirected from NRx)

    Dark Enlightenment, also known as Neoreactionarism (shortened to: DE and NRx respectively) is a broadly React.png Reactionary, economically and culturally right to far-right and civically varied (but prominently Post-Bert.png Post-Libertarian) ideology, however, some (such as Joshua Tait) say that NRx (Mencius Moldbug) is reactionary only in regards of politics, while maintaining positions usually described as socially progressive.[5] NRx originates from the writing of a couple right-wing bloggers from the mid 2000's.

    Neoreactionarism opposes Dem.png Democracy, Equality.png Egalitarianism and the common consensus that the progress of history leads to liberty and enlightenment and the abolition of absolutism in favor of democracy and/or constitutional monarchy, considering itself the antithesis of Monkeyzz-Enlightenment.png Enlightenment. It is in favor of the re-adoption of systems of governance such as Abmon.png Absolute Monarchy and Cameralism.png Cameralism or other systems such as Neocam.png Neocameralism.

    NRx is often associated with "Altr.png Race-Realism", but despite what mainstream sources make an impression of, this is not the main focus of the ideology.

    NRx has also been described as Fash.png Neo-Fascist by journalists and commentators[6][7], and is seen as a major influence on the modern Altr.png Alt-Right movement.




    The Neoreactionary movement's ideological foundations consist of multiple ideas that are discussed between the NRx movement's members but may or may not be shared between them.

    These include but are not limited to:

    Post-Bert.png Post-Libertarianism

    Post-Libertarianism is a school of thought stemming from Libertarian.png Libertarianism that for maintaining individual liberty the enforcement of law and order is an unconditional good, meaning that the Post-Libertarian fully embraces the state as a social institution and as such ceases to be aligned with Libertarianism. While not being libertarian, post-libertarianism still maintains a lot of libertarian ideas such as an affinity towards free markets, skepticism towards state control of information and anti-interventionism.


    Formalism is the belief that actual power and recognised power (especially in the form of ownership) should align as closely as possible. The belief in formalism makes the Neoreactionary movement especially skeptical of democratic forms of government, favouring forms of government based on ownership.

    Neocam.png Neocameralism

    Neocameralism is a form of government proposed by Mencius Moldbug and developed by others as a replacement for representative democracy. Neocameralism is a form of government organised around the profit incentive. As such the Neocameralist system is a system of nigh-absolute rule in which the Monarch-C.E.O. (which Moldbug calls a Delegate, based on the corporate title used by colonial-era Quakers) is accountable to a group of shareholders.

    Neoreactionary Neologisms

    The Neoreactionary movement came up with a lot of neologisms to describe various concepts. Neologisms are perhaps the most influential thing to come out of the movement, appearing in political discourse outside of the movement.

    The Neologisms include:

    • The Cathedral - "The Cathedral" within the context of Neoreactionary discourse is a term used to refer to a society's intellectual elite meaning a class of people who are able to decide what the average person thinks is true or false, right or wrong and important or unimportant.

    Historically this role was fulfilled by religious institutions hence the usage of the term "cathedral", this is intentionally contrasted with the institutions that fulfill the role of the cathedral in the modern age that being Schools, Universities, the Media and the Entertainment industry who largely market themselves as "Secular". It is worth to note that the Cathedral (in it's modern incarnation) is not a formal institution that people just belong to but rather an informal network of leaders of the before-aforementioned institutions that happen to agree on most important matters (Harvard, The New York Times, Disney and The Guardian rarely disagree for example)

    • Redpill.png Redpill - Within the context of Neoreactionary discourse a Redpill.png "Redpill" is any realisation or experience that disconnects an individual from the established cathedral. The term is a reference to the popular film trilogy The Matrix.

    The concept of the Redpill is THE most influential term to come out of the NRx movement, being practically ubiqutous within political discourse on both the left, right, centre and beyond. The term "Redpill" spawned many off-shoots generally named after the specific realisation the redpill provides (including terms Blackpill.png Blackpill (Pessimism), Whitepill.png Whitepill (Optimism), Greenpill (parnamormalism) and more) and also the combination with the term "Based" forming "Based and Redpilled". The various pills have also expanded into apolitical contexts, especially on dating (examples of dating-specific pills being the Purplepill and the Dogpill) and fitness (example of a fitness-specific pills including the Onionpill).

    A variation on the term "Redpill" to have actually come out of the NRx movement is the term Clearpill which is the concept that the best way to come out to political conclusions is to separate yourself from current political factions you have an emotional attachment to and think about policies and systems in an outside context.

    • The Iron Polygon - The Iron Polygon is an extension of the concept of the Iron Triangle.


    • Red and Blue Empire also called the Red and Blue Governments - The concepts of the Red and Blue Government, clipped to RedGov and BlueGov is a specific power analysis of U.S. politics, it's the notion that the United States is not under the control of a single government, but rather of two each with their own internal and foreign policies.

    Those two Empires being the Military and Police-based Red Empire represented in the U.S. congress by the Republican Party and the Blue Empire based around every other part of the iron polygon represented by the Democratic Party.

    The Trichotomy

    The Trichotomy is a political theory created by Sparrel in his blog Bloody Shoovel popularised by other neoreactionaries specially Nick Land,it establishes that there are three lines of thought in the reactionary movement in a similar way as the three states of the realm:the ethno-nationalists Nation.png,the Techno-merchants Cap.png and Traditional-religious Religious.png all of which share his hate to egalitarianism in one form or other[6]. Each one has their own structures and hierarchies which are intersectionally connected between them[7].

    Unprincipled Exception

    An unprincipled exception is a policy that violates some absolute principle of ethics held by the policymaker,but is not openly acknowledged as such a violation.

    Types of Societies

    Moldbug says there are 3 types of Societies according to their relationship between opinion and authority.

    Type 1: The Loyal Society is one where public opinion is a matter of state security, thoughts are categorised in two: bad thoughts that are dangerous to the safety of the state and good thoughts that are useful for the state, people are punished for expressing bad thoughts or rewarded for expressing good or ideally both, the state supports a set of official information organs which uses to install good thoughts and prevent and/or prohibit the spreading of bad thoughts into the population.

    Type 2: The Society of Consensus is a society in which the press and media controls the authority, it's hallmark is the phenomenon of spontaneous coordination which consists in produce an official information system which in all other respects resembles that of a type 1 society but which is not responsible to any central authority or institution.

    Type 3: The Open Society is a society where is a free market of divergent ideas and institutions competing which one are closer to reality.


    NRx isn't an outspoken person and will generally prefer to hang out on the internet. He does not generally have a positive attitude towards things and can be portrayed as rather apathetic.
