Reaction

Some of the points have been challenged by libertarians[2] who favor free trade, by traditional conservatives who consider it racist, and by far right commenters who think it has left wing elements.[3] The alt right movement itself has been strongly opposed by liberals and progressives, who reject it completely.[4] Lawrence Murray wrote a shorter 7-point memo with some overlap with Vox Day's manifesto.[5]
