[I]n recent months, a strand of conservative thought whose adherents are forthright in their disdain for democracy has started to creep into GOP politics. It's called "neoreaction," and its leading figure, a software engineer and blogger named Curtis Yarvin, has ties to at least two GOP U.S. Senate candidates, along with Peter Thiel, a major GOP donor. In my years researching the far right, I see this as one of the more significant developments in right-wing politics. Someone who calls himself a monarchist isn't being relegated to the fringes of the internet. He's being interviewed by Fox News' Tucker Carlson and has U.S. Senate candidates repeating his talking points.
