Like its 1968 leftist counterparts, the New Right would champion the proliferation of new post-materialist issues in the 1980s and 1990s, whether youth questions, feminism, the environment, regional and cultural autonomy and pro-Third World solidarity. Was this strategy a type of revised cultural fascism in the mould of Bardèche or an authentic search for a new political alternative? Like the New Left, the New Right was critical of the harmful effects of capitalist modernization, the despiritualized vision of Western “progress” and questioned the merits of the colonialist project. The French New Right began to see the New Left as a spiritually and politically allied movement and common idealistic partner in their battle to destroy liberal democracy, capitalism and the gradual Westernization of the world. Besides, post-materialist issues tended to be transversal; they transcended the traditional categories of right and left; and they offered hope for a reconciliation between the revolutionary poles on the far right and left against liberal democracy.
