    How exactly would you describe the concept of neoreactionary media.
    As the TV and internet era lies largely in the liberal era, neoreactionary media tends to be of older time periods. E.g. The movie Lost Horizon.

    More traditional neoreactionary media is of course plentiful: books, writings and essays by wise authors.

    Like reactionaries of the past, neoreactionaries of today look to the past for lessons on how to correct for the sins of the present. We do not believe that it is possible to go back in time, as the growth of technology means that history can never repeat, but only rhyme. Instead, we support the implementation of a modern traditionalism based on past principles, utilising technology to achieve social ends that in the past were perhaps not achievable, even in less sinful societies.

    Therefore, when we look to older media, we don't seek to idealise the past, but learn lessons from the wisdom of our ancestors.

    Nietzsche for definite, the Bible is a prime example of what not to read, the universality of humanity is completely at odds with neoreactionary principles.
