“We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who died at his post during the eruption of Vesuvius because someone forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one that can not be taken from a man.” ― Oswald Spengler, Man and Technics: A Contribution to a Philosophy of Life.

Peter Dale Scott On the American War Machine from Justice Action Media (JAM) on Vimeo.
Although of the "left" and frequently in bad company, aspects of Peter Dale Scott's works are of great interest in what Evola refers to as The Occult War. Understand what Evola actually wrote about this before spinning wool.

REPLY: I don't know how it is in Romania but here the movie industry is completely controlled and run by Jews. Most of them profess vague leftist/Marxism while practicing capitalism of the most insidious and destructive order. When you understand their core philosophy is materialism and hypocrisy it makes sense.
Portrait of the Fighter as a Young Man (Romanian: Portretul luptătorului la tinereţe) is a 2010 Romanian drama film directed by Constantin Popescu Jr. It was released at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival.
The film is the first part of a trilogy which describes the fight of anticommunist resistance of Romanians in the 50s. This first movie is centered on the figure of Ion Gavrilă Ogoranu, a member of the fascist and anti-Semitic Iron Guard, played by Constantin Diţă.
Due to its implied antisemitic nature, the film has raised protest from the Elie Wiesel National Institute for Studying the Holocaust in Romania.

An unusual cluster of Stone Age skulls with smashed-in faces has been found carefully separated from the rest of their skeletons. They appear to have been dug up several years after being buried with their bodies, separated, then reburied. Collections of detached skulls have been dug up at many Stone Age sites in Europe and the Near East - but the face-smashing is a new twist that adds further mystery to how these societies related to their dead. Juan José Ibañez at the Spanish National Research Council in Barcelona says the find may suggest that Stone Age cultures believed dead young men were a threat to the world of the living. No one knows why Neolithic societies buried clusters of skulls - often near or underneath settlements. Some think it was a sign of ancestral veneration. "When people started living together [during the Neolithic period], they needed a social cement," says Ibañez. Venerating ancestors might have been a way of doing this. But the violence demonstrated towards the skulls in the latest cluster suggests a different story. The 10,000-year-old skulls were found in Syria. Like those found in other caches, they have been cleanly separated from their spines, suggesting they were collected from dead bodies that had already begun to decompose. Patterns on the bone indicate that some had been decomposing for longer than others, making it likely that they were all gathered together for a specific purpose. Most of the skulls belonged to adult males between 18 and 30 years old. One - belonging to a child - was left intact; one was smashed to pieces; the remaining nine lacked facial bones. "There was a pattern," says Ibañez. "The top of the skull and the jaw were there, but they were missing all of the bones in between." His team believes the facial bones were smashed out with a stone and brute force. "There were no traces of cutting," he says.

"Using Goethe's Theory of Colours (Zur Farbenlehre) as point of departure, Light Darkness and Colours takes us on a fascinating journey through the universe of colours. In 1704, Sir Isaac Newton published 'Light and Refraction,' his study of the interactions between sunlight and prisms. Newton was, as a good scientist, intent on achieving objectivity, which meant studying sunlight in isolation. He thought colours were contained solely in light, and found the spectrum he was looking for. When he reproduced this experiment, Goethe found another, hidden set of colours missed by Newton. Goethe found the hidden colours in the boundaries between light and darkness. He felt, as an artist, that one could not talk about light without including darkness. Calling it 'the light-darkness polarity', Goethe made this new scientific discovery using artistic methods in conjunction with science."

The main reason for discontinuing the book is that there are specific positions I advocate that I no longer hold, and I am no longer interested in writing about Satanism. I no longer subscribe to the strictly narrow tenants of rationalism, materialism, and atheism that it advocates (although much of this is a non-issue from an alternate perspective too complicated to go into here). Satanism also tolerates, sometimes embraces and encourages aspects of modernism that I am no longer capable of endorsing. I am not interested in disparaging the Church of Satan because there are people involved in it who I count as personal friends and for whom I have respect. I don't betray friends. It would also give too much satisfaction to specific people I despise. I have philosophical differences at this point, but criticizing it as a "movement" would be irrelevant. There are more egregious offenders.
As a matter of fact I'm consolidating a lot of material from my notebooks on traditional magic and occultism with an eye toward publishing as a collection of essays, not restricted to a narrowly rationalist/materialistic "psychological" reductionist perspective but more aligned with the point of view of the original UR Group.
I could very well write/post more on knives. The material I hope to salvage from Essays in Satanism on self defense will probably be appended to other, more extensive material I've written specifically on knives and knife fighting systems.
It particularly amuses me every time someone paraphrases the famous Santayana quote about history repeating itself to make some smarmy allusion to the "holocau$t" or as a warning against "Fascism," because even when person peddling the quote happens to be aware of the source, they are usually ignorant of the fact that Santayana was pro-Mussolini.
Of course in a letter addressed to Corliss Lamont in 1950 he had to add his qualifiers, but Santayana still endorsed Mussolini in the essentials: "Of course I was never a Fascist in the sense of belonging to that Italian party, or to any nationalistic or religious party. But considered, as it is for a naturalist, a product of the generative order of society, a nationalist or religious institution will probably have its good sides, and be better perhaps than the alternative that presents itself at some moment in some place. That is what I thought, and still think, Mussolini’s dictatorship was for Italy in its home government. Compare with the disorderly socialism that preceded or the impotent party chaos that has followed it. . . . But Mussolini was personally a bad man and Italy a half-baked political unit; and the militant foreign policy adopted by Fascism was ruinous in its artificiality and folly. But internally, Italy was until the foreign militancy and mad alliances were adopted, a stronger, happier, and more united country than it is or had ever been. Dictatorships are surgical operations, but some diseases require them, only the surgeon must be an expert, not an adventurer."
Here is a pamphlet from Dr. William Pierce defending Hitler against charges of being anti-gun. Unfortunately this doesn't include the German text and English translation of the Nazi gun laws, the most important part.
Personally I would love to see American liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, come together. IN FRONT OF A FIRING SQUAD.
I am probably going to discontinue both the hardcover and paperback (they will be available until Walpurgisnacht 2013). Some of the self-defense material will be repackaged in addition to other unpublished and new material on the same subject. Some of the self-education material may be handled the same way.
I usually forget the music project even exists.

Julien Champagne's most famous painting, Le Vaisseau du Grand Oeuvre (Vessel of the Great Work), was completed in the year 1910. The painting was a great favorite among the Parisian occultists during the first third of the 20th Century. The voluptuous model for the painting was purported to be the young female alchemist, Louise Barbe (ca. 1879-1919); she was the wife of the infamous Russian "monkey gland" surgeon, Serge Voronoff (1866-1951). Louise was a member of the occult circle which gathered at the salon of the de Lesseps family (children of the great Ferdinand de Lesseps) in Paris. Of course, the "Great Work" is Alchemy, and the painting is filled with alchemical symbolism. The nude female figure is a personification of the philosopher's stone; she stands within a glass flask and is surrounded by myriad blazing flames. Off the right shoulder of the young woman is the word "POTERE" meaning "power" in English; off of her left shoulder is the word "AVDERE" meaning "to dare" in English. The background on the left and right sides of the flask contain the names of certain philosophers and alchemists written in Latin letters. The names on the left side are as follows: Artephius, Albert le Grand, Synesius, Th. d'Aquin, R. Lulle, Flamel, Rhazes, and Geber. The names on the right side are as follows: Roger Bacon, A. de Villeneuve, Basile Valentin, Van Helmont, Paracelse, Philalethe, Trevisan, and Ripley. In the darkened sky behind the female figure are depictions of the Moon and four planets that are visible to the naked eye: above her right shoulder are Saturn and Jupiter; on her lower right side is a crescent Venus (Morning Star); above her left shoulder is a crescent Moon; and to her lower left is the planet Mars. On her forehead the woman wears a sparkling diamond of the Queen of Heaven, Isis, the Goddess of magic and the occult arts. The diamond represents the "Great Eye," which Isis is purported to have stolen from Ra, the supreme God of Pharaonic Egypt. Eugène Canseliet used a representation of this painting as the frontispiece in the 1979 reprint of his book entitled Deux logis alchimiques, en marge de la science et de l'histoire (originally published in 1945).

I recall being briefly amused by Boyd Rice after reading RE/Search "Pranks" and "Incredibly Strange Films" in the 1980's, until I saw him interviewed (re "Pranks") around the same time and realized what a mind-numbingly boring blowhard he is. In all honesty I never listened to any of his audio material aside from the "People" song which is as mildly amusing and as easily forgettable as anything from the Dr. Demento show. His post-CoS spiel reminded me of a sad coffehouse impersonation of Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard, only less interesting.

When I see photos of my book on peoples personal bookshelves next to books by Ayn Rand, Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, The Amazing Randi, etc. I know I have done something wrong that needs to be corrected. I am not with that program at all.
For the time being both versions of the book are still available here:
