I’m a sucker for classification graphs, so I was delighted to see that “Another Reactionary Blog” had compiled a “map” of the neo-reactionary / “Dark Enlightenment” thinkers. It’s reproduced below:
I’m not disappointed not to see myself there, as I blog about a lot of different things making classification quite hard.
If I had to try to place myself there, I’d probably be somewhere east of the Derb, west of Steve Hsu, and north of Taki. If I had to pick just one school, I probably best fit into the HBD community, but I’m interested in Techno-Futurism (incidentally, I met up with Mike Anissimov last week) and “Masculine Reaction” – or at least its “game” component, I don’t much care for the MRM - as well.
EDIT: The original map has been replaced with an updated one, with me included! My position there is about right.
See also A History of Reactionary Taxonomy at the Radish Mag for the most comprehensive “meta” analysis of reaction.
