I'm beginning to realize that I am part of a very small, very radical avante-garde cultural movement, which I'm calling "psychedelic neoreaction." Allow me to briefly describe the main components of our ideology.
Neoreaction: An umbrella term for various factions which oppose the
entire narrative that leftists have constructed over the past two or three
centuries, in which the Right are the designated losers, forever fighting a
rearguard action against the inevitable march of Progress. The enemy here is “the
Cathedral” (see below) and the "progress" meme itself, which is a
fanatical secular religion that consigns entire cultures, religions,
ideologies, tribes and ways of life to the dustbin of history. Michael Anissimov at offers the
following useful map of the neoreactionary memosphere:
Anissimov defines the Cathedral as follows:
The Cathedral: The self-organizing consensus of
Progressives and Progressive ideology represented by the universities,
media, and the civil service. A term coined by blogger Mencius Moldbug.
The Cathedral has no central administrator, but
represents a consensus acting as a coherent group that condemns other
ideologies as evil. Community writers have enumerated the platform of
Progressivism as women’s suffrage, prohibition, abolition, federal
income tax, democratic election of senators, labor laws, desegregation,
popularization of drugs, destruction of traditional sexual norms, ethnic
studies courses in colleges, decolonization, and gay marriage. A
feature of Progressivism is that “you believe that morality has been
essentially solved, and all that’s left is to work out the details.”
Reactionaries see Republicans as Progressives, just lagging 10-20 years behind
Democrats in their adoption of Progressive norms.
In more conventional right wing and conspiracy circles, the Cathedral may sometimes
be referred to as “the New World Order.”
neoreactionaries are the subset of neoreactionaries who find various
psychonautic techniques, such as psychedelic drugs, Eastern mysticism and
occultism, to be useful in deconstructing the Cathedral and freeing their minds
from its programming. A psyneo uses these methods as a “red pill” to awaken
himself from the progressives' propaganda matrix and find out how deep the rabbit hole goes.
One of the great appeals of psychedelic neoreaction for me is its power to
mindfuck the pedantic, pedestrian partisans of Cathedral indoctrination. In the
groupthink environment created by progressives in our academic, cultural and
governmental institutions, consciousness alteration can provide both a sense of
liberation and an enhanced individuality. Such individuality is threatening to
good progressive citizens of the Cathedral, who are often so deep in its matrix
that they must be shocked into realizing the extent of their mental
colonization. Psychedelic neoreactionaries are therefore a true counterculture,
unlike the psychedelic pseudo-counterculture of Timothy Leary and friends, who
embraced the Cathedral’s entire political platform (and may even have been
an engineered advanced guard for its agenda).
Note that Anissimov lists “popularization of drugs” as part of the
Cathedral platform, yet this is not inconsistent with psychedelic
consider the baser addictive drugs, such as heroin, methamphetamines,
and alcohol, to be little more than party drugs, painkillers and
which are no threat to the Cathedral/NWO program of a docile, medicated,
population. Nor do we favor psychedelics for the raucous masses; we
believe, like Aldous Huxley and most of the pre-Leary psychonauts, that
psychedelics are best used by a responsible cognitive elite.
Finally, as we psyneos continue to turn on and rewrite
both history and the future, I would like to offer the following individual as a
hero of our countercultural revolution:
This is Alfred “Captain Trips” Hubbard, the arch-conservative hillbilly genius
and “Acid Messiah” who first popularized LSD among the Western elites. Hubbard’s story is
one of the most incredible, yet little known of the 20th century,
probably because it doesn’t fit the standard narrative of the psychedelic left. Sadly,
Hubbard’s revolution was hijacked by clowns like Timothy Leary, and has
languished in obscurity ever since.

That’s all for now; until next time, keep on tripping and mindfucking those
Cathedral sheeple, my fellow psyneos!
