Retrolution (retro-revolution) is a right wing reaction against modern society and politics. Retrolutionists often scream about "Taking the country back" from the liberal, progressive left wing of politics. What they mean is both "taking the country back" physically, as well as "taking the country back" in time, usually to the time of their own youth.
The underlying causes of the retrolutionary spirit are the fear of old age and death, moral disapproval based on resentment, and hatred and envy towards "immoral" young people.

"Some would argue that the Bush administration was even more retrolutionary than the Reagan administration."
