The Lasch Pill and the Anti-Capitalist Right

By Albino Squirrel, The Syndicalist Papers

In a previous article I wrote called The Capitol Situation, I predicted that the American Right would start becoming more anti- free-market capitalism and start to take more regulated takes on capitalism or hopeful eventually a more radical anti-capitalist take due to how modern capitalism pushes for open borders, outsourcing, a more hyper sexualize culture, Legalization of drugs, censoring of alternative media, lobbying the government, supporting foreign wars and radical social movements. Along with using cutthroat business tactics to out-compete small businesses. In other words, things that Social Conservatives and normal people see as destructive to not only themselves but to society.

Before my article came out there was already a small yet growing number of those on the American Right that was starting to take a more anti-free market position such as Tucker Carlson. After January 6th many more right-wing commentators started picking it up such as Lauren Southern and John Doyle. Yet I find many on the right to still be pro-capitalist who tend to blame the problems of the world on “Cultural Marxist” when it comes to mainstream conservatives or X racial group when it comes to more radical elements of the right. I also find many of these critiques of capitalism to mostly be moderate and vague. Along with them not mentioning where they got these ideas from except for Lauren Southern who said she got it from the Red Tories.

I think many in the modern right especially the mainstream right would find hard to believe that there is anti-capitalist right wing or conservative form of socialism some examples of groups and Ideologies that are like this and not limited to are Distributism, Sothern Agrarians, Red Tories, Prussian Socialism, the German Conservative Revolution, Third Position, French New Right, 4th Political theory, and One Nation Conservatism. Even amongst some in the Marxist and Communist camps outside the western world tend to have very strong social conservative bents to them. Even more so than the modern conservative parties of the west. Some examples are the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Chinese New Left, Sandinista, and the Party of Socialist of the Republic of Moldova.
