    Milo has come to Australia to spread the word of the Alt Right.

    Who would like to identify the policies of the Alt Right please ? What changes would one like to see in our society after following these policies ? Why are they needed?

    All yours.

    Best define Aternative Right for better understanding of the bitter and twisted side of humanity.

    Well I don't know about the alternative right, but I do know (from personal experience) there are a lot of young Australians, who are just banding together on welfare, to enjoy the meth life.

    Alt right is a reaction to the lunatic left and extreme pc etc.

    Incidentally, I wouldn't describe Milo as alt right

    I can tell you something they don't want Bas! And Milo Y. isn't alt-right, as Wayne correctly states.

    The C&P definition in itself is a piece of socialist diatribe...... it's a nonsense mixing, just like saying petticote men are all alt-left, misandrists are all alt-left.

    The alternate right are, rightly or wrongly, the traditional values people who have seen Conservative and Worker parties abandon these principals for social engineering and personal correctness.

    Nazis, misogynists, etc are heaped into the mix to denigrate the ideals of the alt-right, when in fact they belong to the "ult-right"

    So is Cory Bernadi and David Lleyohjelm "alt Right" I wonder or are they just "Conservatives" ?

    I think they are just a bunch of rich *****s who want to protect their own tax rorts and don't like the idea that greater income distribution might actually be good for the economy.

    Basically this.
    Asking what they want is too broad of a question when you lump so many groups together.
    The left calling jews nazis was the icing on the cake.

    Didn't it all kind of start with "occupy Wallstreet" in which the alt-right didn't want to bailout the banks?
    It was also the start of calling bs on the media.

    Alt-right basically boils down to less government interference in peoples lives. Which can be a very broad spectrum.

    Yes I think that there is both an economic and social agenda of the alt Right. You can agree with one, the other or both, but in the end it's an extremist movement just like the alt Left is.

    Too many groups have been thrown into the mix. You have skinheads lumped in with ultra-nationalists jews.
    You can agree with aspects of their policies and totally hate other parts. But the strategy of the left of lumping everyone together may eventually backfire.

    Guys like Milo and Ben Shapiro try and narrow the focus.

    Cory Bernardi is just a traditional conservative

    David Leyonhjelm is a libertarian/classical liberal, which were once considered left... certainly on social ideology.

    So who actually advocated "true" socialism ?

    Not me mate, I just argued for more even wealth distribution not a complete takeover of private enterprise by governments.
