reactionaries aren't a counter culture, they are reactionaries. Counter cultures take something old and either create something that goes against it (abstract art against realist art) or remakes it into something new (vaporwave). reactionaries just seek to return to an illusionary past because they are dissatisfied by the inclusion of liberties to new people which removes their monopoly on social and societal influence. by this principle you cannot be both reactionary and communist, communists hold that freedom is merely a privilege unless enjoyed by one and all.

How the fuck is this traditional? if you mean the other lifestylism shit about eating healthy, not taking drugs and doing excersive, that's not traditional values, and it wouldn't make millenials more revolutionary than boomers compared to the other shit I mentioned above.

Even if Traditionalism was counter-culture, it being so wouldn't suddenly validate it. If there is anything I hate more, it's this Western idea that if suddenly you're the "victim" or not accepted by most people, then you are correct. Ideas are true based on the ideas themselves, not by their relation to others.

most right wing theory is justification for existing systems of power or the expansion or social monopolization thereof, not actually independent and objective (or really even idealistic most of the time) theory. For example the subjective theory of value, it was largely created as a justification for the market systems to secure what little was left of the societal monopoly that was held on by the old aristocracy throughout the 19th century, even though it was extremely easy to prove objectively wrong. But it didn't need to be "correct" or even internally coherent (which is what disqualifies it from even being idealistic), it just needed to protect power itself.

lad they are all apologists for capitalism and corporate control of society as it exists now, they just want white people to have that role exclusively. If you are lucky, they might do minor socdem policies like healthcare for white people to improve birthrates or whatever, but they will always work within the framework of existing power because they are ultimately beholden to it. A classic example is the Nazis and their relation to corporate power from Blackshirts and Reds:
What happened to the U.S. businesses that collaborated with fascism.

"The Rockefeller family's Chase National Bank used its Paris office in Vichy France to help launder German money to facilitate Nazi international trade during the war, and did so with complete impunity. Corporations like DuPont, Ford, General Motors, and ITT owned factories in enemy countries that produced fuel, tanks, and planes that wreaked havoc on Allied forces. After the war, instead of being prosecuted for treason, ITT collected $27 million from the U.S. government for war damages inflicted on its German plants by Allied bombings. General Motors collected over $33 million. Pilots were given instructions not to hit factories in Germany that were owned by U.S. firms. Thus Cologne was leveled by Allied bombing but its Ford plant, providing military equipment for the Nazi army, was untouched; indeed, German civilians began using the plant as an air raid shelter."

what does this have to do with the movement not being new?
It is predicated on the protection of old power structures, not on the creation of a new societal mode or norms.

Their main focus is demographics not economics so much
For lacking a focus on demographics they are very quick to ally with capitalists against their wealth being distributed. Lets not forget that Hitler was appointed by liberal capitalists because of the utility of the Nazi party against the Spartacus Rebellion and their ability to generally suppress communists. The same is true now, a lot of alt-righties are keen to jump to the aid of capitalism at even socdem policies that were in place in their prophesied "golden era", which is quite telling that they only use the ideas of promoting the fundamentalism or traditionalism or the ethics of the past is not actually done in the name of the preservation of that era, but to adopt the exclusionary social principles of that time in order to reinforce the existing systems by excluding marginalized people that might want to seek some kind of reform of the system or the overthrow of the system.

what old power structures are they protecting?
Principally capitalism, but generally the socio-economic apartheid, the monopoly of political power by rich people, the continued caste-ification of capitalism and destroying social mobility, so on and so forth.

You're associating generic terms with recent political ideologies.
These people contort language to assign good words with their ideology and bad words with the opponent. Its the same mode of thinking that pigeon holes people into thinking there are only 2 solutions.
new ideas, reforms. building, law and order are all ancient. the liberal conservative dichotomy is an enlightenment creation.

Dylan Miller

Except it is because it reinforces the existing economic system? Just because it is the norm doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

the entire economy is not a single power structure but alright.
Capitalism isn't a single power structure, it is a singular mode of commodity production, a la Marx's theories. Everyone ultimately abides by the rules of capitalism, it infiltrates every aspect of your life and how you conduct yourself, see pic related.

So you agree that new right movements are revolutionary against the established liberal social order

No, because they are reactionary. Reactionary movements are perhaps the literal opposite of revolutionary movements, since it isn't a new system but an old system reinstated even if you took them at their word. But even then a lot of the time they ultimately fuck up because they are psueds like Trump who end up selling out his base for economic interests and have their dumbass social crusades stay unresolved to use for further political rhetoric so they can further enrich capitalists.

but aren't those "people" that you mentioned responsible for a lot of the evil in the world today?
If by people you mean capitalists then yes.

the concepts of left and right are transhistorical though: left is for abolishing hierarchy while the right is for upholding it. feodal christian slavery abolitionists are to the left of slavers, liberals are to the left of supporters of divine right, liberals are to the right of those who wish to abolish private property and so on. the new right reheats arguments about racial hierarchy they claim is natural, in this they are to the right of the liberals who believe in extending bourgeois rights to all ethnicities.

anti-hegemonic is not the same as revolutionary: Hungary's Orban is in opposition to the social-liberal hegemony of EU but has absolutely no qualms deepening the slavery of "his people" to capital with the overtime law for example. He works for the capital and entrenches the hierarchy. Hungary is still fundamentally ruled by the same forces as before his coming to political power.

It doesn't matter, they still reinforce the existing economic system regardless of if they want it controlled by whites or whatever. That makes them actors within the economic system.

ok this isn't really a counter or anything.
No, it expands on the point of the influence of capitalism and introduces a further point about the nature of the right, which I will delve into later.

Regular Trump supporters are not "new right" they're just regular republicans this isn't who is being discussed
Trump supporters constituted a large portion of the "new right" and he was considered a catalyst for a new age of American reactionary thought. You could see it in 4/pol/ and 8/pol/, and many of the recent far-right shooters had inspiration from Trump or Trump-related movements. Not to mention shit like Qanon, which is also popular among the far-right types.
The new right people support trump in so much as he is the most anti immigration candidate but everyone acknowledges that "electing a good president" isn't the end all be all.
He ran and was elected on a lot more than "anti immigration". And even disregarding all the stuff he went back on and betrayed the principles of (like the expansion of the MIC and America's involvement in foreign wars, expansion of aid to Israel, so on), the only way he pushes the "anti-immigrant" cause is by expanding the prison-industrial complex. The employment of immigrants in businesses to be used as cheap labor and thus denying Americans jobs goes on unopposed, because the right dares not oppose the interests of capitalists that fund them. Ultimately their anti-immigrant movement is just to further police immigrants so that they can be another slave-caste to use for capitalist interests.

Ultimately, all right movements exist as a tool for the existing economic and institutional interests in replicating and preserving the existing systems by policing disenfranchised groups that might challenge it, as well as further militarizing the state that it can protect itself more. The people responsible for the police getting APCs and automatic rifles was the "new right", because it both forces disenfranchised people to stop protesting for a change in the existing systems by overwhelming force or the threat thereof, and further serves capitalists in the MIC by extending the sales of military equipment to the police forces. There are countless other examples of this both currently and throughout history, but I've already made the point well enough I think.

If you don't have anything substantive to bring up, I think we are done here.

Any movement that opposes the current social order is a revolutionary movement.
Only a movement that proposes a new order is a revolutionary movement. A movement that advocates a return to an old order is by definition reactionary, not revolutionary.

True. However not all trump supports are part of the new right movement just most of the new right supports trump as he is the most anti immigration candidate. No one in the new right sees electing a good president as the final solution

He ran and was elected on a lot more than "anti immigration".
Yeah obviously. The anti immigration aspect is what separated him from the herd. That is what is important here when discussing Trump and the new right.

And even disregarding all the stuff he went back on and betrayed the principles of (like the expansion of the MIC and America's involvement in foreign wars, expansion of aid to Israel, so on), the only way he pushes the "anti-immigrant" cause is by expanding the prison-industrial complex
And? like I said only moderates think electing a good president will fix things.

The employment of immigrants in businesses to be used as cheap labor and thus denying Americans jobs goes on unopposed, because the right dares not oppose the interests of capitalists that fund them. Ultimately their anti-immigrant movement is just to further police immigrants so that they can be another slave-caste to use for capitalist interests.
Actually no it doesn't we have stopped more immigrants than any other candidate would have.

Ultimately their anti-immigrant movement is just to further police immigrants so that they can be another slave-caste to use for capitalist interests.
yes this would be preferable to what is going on now.

It doesn't work well when you're using ideologies that have come about recently to describe people from thousands of years ago
the left and the right as transhistorical concepts aren't ideologies, that's the point. they are the descriptors of an ideology's relative position to the status quo. calling an ancient anti-slavery advocate a liberal would be anachronistic, calling them leftist - as opposed to the status quo of slave society - would not.
What I described was the actual definition of revolution.
so was the civil rights movement revolutionary? was the passing of the civil rights act of 1964 a revolution? pick your answer carefully
by your definitions what do the words counter-revolutionary and reactionary mean?
why are you so hell-bent on calling your little pet reaction revolutionary anyway? trying to fool people into entrenching their own slavery again?
