PostSubject: Are Reactionaries Inherently Right-Wing?   Sat Jul 05, 2008 10:26 am

This is something of a problem I'm having with the "Reactionary" party here on the forums, because I don't think that reactionaries are inherently right-wing. I would regard people such as Mao Tse-tung, Robert Mugabe, and Joseph Stalin as being left-wing reactionaries, if you want to use the term strictly in Marxist terms, which I'm sure most of you do.

So are reactionaries by default right-wing, or can there be left-wing reactionaries?

And, as it pertains to this forum, should we label the "right-wing" party as something else?

well...i suppose its all subjective anyway, but reactionary elements in society are just parts of society that would react negatively to changes that leftists would try to foster, right?

but you are right, maybe we should split the "reactionary" party into smaller sections...? just for clarification purposes.

then again, it might be better to do this after we have more reactionaries anyway lol

'The Right-Wing" I think will suffice believe so for having conservative politics socially and being opposed to revolution

I didn't pay much attention to it because this site is focusing on the revolutionary left as opposed to kenzu's site


I made the distinction anyways

Well the opposition against one party comes from all sides, not only left and right.
There will always be a group which is more left or right, more liberal or conservative, more environmentalist or economy oriented etc. I have therefore addressed all major views.

and as you have seen I have united socialists and communists by keeping only 2 groups, while your so-called "reactionaries" have been split into 8 groups, 3 of them being left-wing too (social-democrats, anarchists and green)

^^ Yes, i agree that you are very adamant in your fight against freedom.

I guess since i said that i may as well give my two cents on this matter at hand. To the original question, it is not that reactionaries are right-wing, but they are politically to the right of those using the term, generally (since they are accused of defying revolution. I think it should be set up evenly on both sides. The right wing has the reactionary party and the right wing party, but the liberals only have the reactionary party. I think it should either be two reactionary parties for either side, or one reactionary party for both sides as well as their respective left or right wing parties.

I believe the right wing is inherently reactionary considering the general aim of strengthening capitalism and expanding the anarchy of the market thus becoming a complete and counterpoised obstacle to socialism and the smashing of the state
