Not to be confused with Reactionary Libertarianism

"The assertion that men are objectively equal is so absurd that it does not even merit being refuted."

Reactionary Liberalism, is an economically center-right to far-right, statist (but mostly democratic) civically variable and culturally right to far-right ideology who believes in a union of economic policies typical of liberalism (pro-free enterprise capitalist market economy, typically Classical Liberal in nature but sometimes it can be Keynesian or Social market economy) and a democratic system of government with reactionary and traditionalist social values, although a minority of them propose non-democratic forms of government. It is defined by it's belief that there should be a separation between Free-Market Capitalism/Liberal Democracy and Post-Enlightenment cultural views, which it deems as "degenerate".

Unlike most ideologies on this wiki, this one isn't a serious theoretical one or has many open advocates IRL, as the majority of the center right to right wing populist claim to be against liberalism. It mostly originates from insults of Leftists towards center right to right wing populist figures who seem to promote Neoliberal economics.

Personality and Behavior

Unlike most other culturally reactionary ideologies, he does not view the institution of Liberalism as contradictory to or incompatible with far-right social views, seeing social Progressivism as a problem separate to the system it exists in, which makes him somewhat of an "opposite unity" ideology between the Liberal Dynasty and reactionaries.

On a similar note, his cultural views set him aside from other liberal ideologies though sharing substantial similarities with Conservative Liberalism, albeit much more extreme. Older Reactionary Liberals tend to be part of the Christian Democracy, who believe that a liberal democratic system and strong traditional Christian society can be combined. Younger Reactionary Liberals very commonly are part of the Online New Right movements , tend to bitch and moan complain about "free speech" whenever they're censored by progressive corporations for their edgy behavior. They tend to rant about "Cultural Marxism" and "Gender Ideology" and how they want to take away their values.

Regional Variants

Brazil

Bolsonarism is an economically and culturally far-right ideology defended by Jair Bolsonaro and his supporters. He advocates many values associated with the  Christian Right, being highly opposed to secularism. A core proponent of his vision is "making Brazil not a  socialist country anymore", advocating that the Brazilian military regime (known for its numerous human rights violations) was extremely prosperous before democracy. He is opposed to abortion, gay marriage and essentially anything progressive, and is in favor of liberalization of gun laws, privatization of government industries and the laxing of environmental regulations, taking a strongly neoliberal economic agenda. He wants to align Brazil to be closer with  Israel and the  United States, and openly admires  Donald Trump.

Chile

Republican Party was founded in 2018 out of the results of Republican Ideas, both created by initiative of José Antonio Kast, a former Independent Democratic Union partisan, after growing disappointed for the lack of a strong defense of the party in topics such as traditional family and opposition to progressive laws such as abortion and gender ideology.
In 2017 he ran for President independently, representing a right wing sector that strongly defended such values and wasn't happy with the idea of voting for Sebastián Piñera again. He got 7.9% of counted votes.
That sentiment grew as he approved gender identity laws, pardoned illegal migrants and let increasing crime be. Popular demand for a voice against that wasn't present in any political party; so Republican Party was founded with that task in mind.
After the 2019 widespread riots in most major cities in Chile, the proposal of rewriting the Chilean Constitution from scratch and a subsequential referendum, José Antonio Kast was one of the only Chilean politicians with a clear standing against its rewriting, thus becoming the face for the "hard right wing" in Chile.
In 2021 he ran for President a second time representing an electorate which was tired of the inaction of the right wing parties to preserve Chilean integrity, its institutions and its foundations. He got the second place with 44.1% of the counted votes.

Egypt

France

The Thermadorian Reaction was a period during the final phases of the Reign of Terror during the events of the French Revolution. It was a coup led by more moderate elements of the French National Convention, who denounced the tyrannical policies of Maximilian Robespierre & the Committee of Public Safety. After they subsequently lost support from the Plaineist deputies of the National Convention, the Montagnards & their Communard supporters were declared outlaws, arrested after a skirmish at the Hôtel de Ville, and executed. The Thermadorians then initiated a White Terror against those who were still loyal to the Montagnards, & barred them from receiving public office.

The regime itself, known as the Directory, established limitations to prevent one person from concentrating power, thus creating an oligarchy of five men in the process. For the most part, it was a relatively ineffective regime, & completely unpopular with the people. It was ultimately overthrown in a coup d'etat by Napoleon Bonaparte & Emmanuel Joseph Sieyès, who replaced it with the French Consulate.


Henry de Lesquen is a far-right figure, near non-existent politically speaking, with a racialist and national-liberal doctrine. He is also the leader and co-founder of the metapolitical think tank Carrefour de l'Horloge,he also have his own party: Parti National-Libèral (PNL). Other prominent figures that share his ideology are other two of the seven co-founders of the Carrefour de l'Horloge: defunct Yvan Blot founder of the association Agir Pour la Democratie Directe which have the objective to change the french constitution into the swiss model and Jean Yves-Gallou that it is part of the party Reconquest.

Germany

Alternative for Germany is a National Conservative party in Germany created by Bernd Lucke in 2013. Originally starting out as a more softly Eurosceptic Liberal Conservative party, it starting taking a much more hardline stance in 2015, with the current incarnation of the AfD promoting anti-immigration, anti-Islam, anti-feminist, and climate change denialist rhetoric, along with being more overtly against European integration. The party also supports an Ordo-Liberal economic platform, citing inspiration from Walter Eucken and Ludwig Erhard, and wants to install a Swiss-style semi-direct democracy. There was an even more right-wing faction of the party called "Der Flügel", with some of its members having ties to Neo-Nazi groups, although it was formally dissolved in 2020.

Italy

Japan

The Liberal Democratic Party is a right-wing,monarchist and the dominant party in Japan, with various factions ideologically diverse, the main faction that dominates the party is economically liberal, socially conservative and ethnonationalist.

Netherlands

Forum for Democracy is a right-populist party in the Netherlands, headed by Thierry Baudet. FvD are in favor of a stricter national immigration policy in which Dutch citizens would decide for themselves who is received. In combination with these measures, the party is in favor of receiving asylum seekers in the region and an active deportation policy of illegal immigrants, in which illegality is punishable. In addition, the party advocates a 'Dutch Values ​​Protection Act'.

The party is in favor of semi-direct democracy and advocates the introduction of binding referendums and popular initiatives as according to them, power and functions are divided among the main government parties. FvD favors a directly elected mayor and a directly elected prime minister. The party also favors a government made up of apolitical experts and believes top officials should reapply for their position when a new cabinet is formed, his economic platform is in line with Classical Liberalism, primarily consists of market deregulation, lowering taxes and privatization of certain public-owned enterprises and properties (ex:Dutch public broadcasting Foundation), despite being considered a far-right party they propose the gradual legalization of soft drugs and even study the possibility of legalize hard Drugs also they're in favour of same-sex marriage. They also hold hard eurosceptic views, calling for an EU withdrawal referendum (Nexit) and focus on climate skepticism, ignoring the scientific consensus on climate change.

Lastly, the party holds a strongly traditionalist view on culture, with Baudet having outright said that they "fundamentally oppose the values of the enlightenment"[9]. A major part of their platform is based around wanting to restore old dutch culture and architecture. They have also gotten in trouble for having ties to the Alt-Right and white nationalists in the past, one particular instance involving the youth wing being hijacked by neo-nazis and Baudet refused to disown them, causing most of the "moderate wing" of the party to resign in protest and eventually forming a separate party JA21 in December 2020.

Poland

In Poland, there's a strong divide in the country's far-right concerning economics, though both have come from a shared opposition to communism. The first half is represented by the main governing party Law and Justice (PIS), which supports economic interventionism and a strong welfare state combined with centre-right to right-wing and religious social views. While the latter half being represented by the Konfederacja Coalition, which favors economic liberalism and reactionary values. the parties that make up the coalition are the titular Korwin party, The National Movement and Confederation of the Polish Crown (KKP) or just "The Crown" for short.

Spain

Salvador de Madariaga described himself as an organicist liberal," he was an anti ultilitarian humanist. His other views were anti-communist , anti-Francoist and described as a "moderate classical liberal", in Anarchy or Hierarchy he proposed a concept called "unanimous organic democracy", in which the State would not tolerate strikes or unions and would restrict the right to vote. After the end of the Second World War he defended monarchical positions for Spain (embodied in the figure of Juan de Borbón) and was opposed to universal suffrage . His thinking, which received criticism from the Spanish left during the Second Republic, has been described by Pedro Carlos González Cuevas as elitist. According to Herbert R. Southworth , Ricardo de la Cierva would have proposed Madariaga (whose attacks on various socialist politicians were used as propaganda by the regime) and José Antonio Primo de Rivera as the main inspirers of Franco's political program.
