Since the beginnings of mechanization and even industrialization, there has been a strand of opinion which rejects, objects to, or has been highly critical of the costs of the changes that these trends brought about.
As such there is no movement labelled anti-modernism, instead it is a catch all term for different critiques of the modern era, modernism, modernist works, or some combination of the above.
Anti-modern movements represent a wide range of critiques, including appeals to tradition, religion, spirituality, environmentalism, aesthetics, pacificism , Marxism or agrarian virtues. They may reject technologies, or their use, social organizations, such as corporations, or some combination of the above. They may reject modernism on the grounds of its denying universalism of particular kinds.
