* Creator/HonoreDeBalzac saw himself as a royalist in the Restoration and the July Monarchy. His novels were highly critical of the rise of the middle class and the beginning of capitalism in France, and generally critical of the aristocracy for not setting an example and engaging with reforms so as to maintain their hegemony in post-Revolutionary France. He was critical of the Revolution, which he felt didn't bring Liberty-Equality-Fraternity so much as declare open season for all kinds of SocialClimber who ''have to be'' corrupt and cold-hearted merely to make a comfortable living. His novel ''Literature/LePereGoriot'' touches on the basic system of French society.

* Creator/FyodorDostoevsky began his life as a liberal but gradually became a slavophile conservative who advocated reforms while calling for the preservation of the Tsar and the Orthodox Church. He was hostile to Western ideas in general and was a professed anti-semite. His fiction ''Literature/CrimeAndPunishment, Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov'' and many others portrayed young men tempted and succumbing by radical ideologies and revolutionary leaders, who eventually turn out to be corrupt, violent and self-destructive. Dostoevsky is considered to be complex and his books have a lot of {{Applicability}} which meant that ironically, his fiction (rather than his non-fiction for which he was more widely known in Russia) has had a greater influence in influencing Western left-wing and radical thinkers in the West than more liberal Russian writers.

* Arguably ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'', by Aldous Huxley, though like ''VideoGame/BioShock'' below, itís mainly by default. The novel can be seen as highly critical of many concepts, including socialistic utopianism, social liberal/individualist hedonism, hierarchical eugenicism, Fordian productivism, conditioning and authoritarianism. The focus on sexuality means the book may be seen as Christian Democratic, though it was written before the emergence of modern Christian Democracy (and amusingly, the author himself definitely ''wasnít'' a Christian Democrat nor a conservative).

* Literature/StarshipTroopers: It's controversial to say the least, but the consencus seems to be that Starship Troopers is not a Fascist work, but more like Militarist propaganda.

militarist propaganda, as it goes against what most fascists advocated in accepting racial minorities and women as equal citizens, although it's close in other ways.

While Proudhon and a few other thinkers called themselves anarchists in the 1840s and 1850s, anarchism didnít really get organised as a cohesive movement until the mid-1860s within the famous socialist group the IWMA (International Working Menís Association), also called the ďFirst International,Ē as itís had at least three successors. Although the First International is most well-known today because Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels were members, for a time it actually contained more anarchists than Marxists ó that is, until they were expelled in the early 1870s by Marx himself.

* ''Literature/HomageToCatalonia'' and ''Literature/DownAndOutInParisAndLondon'' by Creator/GeorgeOrwell (the former describes the UsefulNotes/SpanishCivilWar and the latter describes his experiences with poverty; like Tolstoy and Godwin, Orwell didn't consider himself an anarchist, preferring the term "democratic socialist", but tends to be accepted by anarchists as at least a kindred spirit)
