Call me a Neo-Reactionary (or NRX) from the Orient. My name is not so important, my thoughts and ideas that I will share here are more important than my name.
Why Orient? I am from the Orient. That’s all. I am from a Middle-Eastern country, so my country is an Oriental country, that makes me an Oriental Neoreactionary. I’m from Turkey. I am a Muslim and an ethnic Turk. I will share some other details for myself, but, don’t wait for me to share my address and my telephone number. Sometimes, I do some grammar mistakes, sorry for that.
Let me ask and answer some questions, then:
Why Neoreaction? Why not one of the so-called ideologies of Turkey? Why, not Islamism, for example, or Socialism, or Kemalism et cetera? Turkey and the Middle East particular, became a shithole. Modernism, Secularism, Republicanism, all of them caused the corruption of the Middle East. Conservativism of the Middle East would not solve anything. There is hardly anything to conserve at the Middle East. Progressivism and its offsprings (Socialism, Communism, Kemalism and Baathism) corrupted everything. Progress in the Middle East is a nickname for Corrosion.
I hear you to say that:
“Why you had not joined the Islamic State and/or any other Islamic organization (terrorist organizations according to their definition)?”
The Islamic State and the other groups are also corrupted (unfortunately). Because the progressivism is a corrosive for the Middle East and they are -no matter how loudly they denied- affected by it. Think like that, If you put a spoonful of wine in a barrel full of sewage, you get sewage. If you put a spoonful of sewage in a barrel full of wine, you get sewage. Islamic groups is the wine (Sorry for the word, I did not want to change the quote), and the Progress is the sewage. Maybe they have some good insights and intentions, but unfortunately they are the part of the Islamic Second Religiousness, and this is not a good thing for us Muslims.
I was a progressive, a staunch Kemalist, but I awoke from the dream, and I saw the real Middle East behind the Masque.
So, let the activism and fight begin.
