“The so-called 'Left-Hand Path' - that of Kaulas, Siddhas and Viras - combines the... Tantric worldview with a doctrine of the Übermensch which would put Nietzsche to shame... The Vira - which is to say: the 'heroic' man of Tantrism - seeks to sever all bonds, to overcome all duality between good and evil, honor and shame, virtue and guilt. Tantrism is the supreme path of the absolute absence of law - of shvecchacarī, a word meaning 'he whose law is his own will'." ― Julius Evola, The Path of Cinnabar.

“It is necessary to have “watchers” at hand who will bear witness to the values of Tradition in ever more uncompromising and firm ways, as the anti-traditional forces grow in strength. Even though these values cannot be achieved, it does not mean that they amount to mere “ideas.” These are measures…. Let people of our time talk about these things with condescension as if they were anachronistic and anti-historical; we know that this is an alibi for their defeat. Let us leave modern men to their “truths” and let us only be concerned about one thing: to keep standing amid a world of ruins.” ― Julius Evola, Revolt Against the Modern World: Politics, Religion, and Social Order in the Kali Yuga.

“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.

Al Sharpton - Religious Huckster and Racial Shakedown Artist buys-off the IRS

The Rev Cops a Plea
New York Post, July 23, 2008
Looks like Rev. Slick has copped a plea. So to speak.

The US Attorney’s Office has called off a criminal probe of Al Sharpton’s mysterious personal and professional finances, accepting instead the reverend’s promise to make good on up to $9 million in unpaid back taxes, interest and penalties.

Sharpton’s word being what it is, the G-men better have it in writing—with multiple copies.

Even so, New York authorities—who have stood aside as the feds proceeded—will now be stepping up to the plate.

Criminal charges are said to be unlikely—but The Rev owes Albany gazillions, too, so there’s more to come on this story.

Two fires—six years apart—conveniently destroyed Sharpton’s financial records just as he was about to turn them over to government officials.

Clearly, the Rev. Al was feeling a different sort of heat—which is why last month he tried to enlist House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers to investigate his “harassment” at the hands of the IRS.

We’re sorry the feds have decided that no criminal charges were warranted. (That’s our right, of course—Sharpton isn’t the only one allowed to object to the outcome of criminal proceedings.)

As to why the feds decided to settle things civilly, who knows?

{snip}

Or maybe those corporations recently reported by the The Post to have been paying Sharpton handsomely—right on the heels of his threats to target them with “racism” demonstrations—decided not to cooperate.

{snip}

Then again, maybe the feds simply held the threat of an indictment over Sharpton’s head until he agreed to a figure the IRS thought adequate.

Now, where might they have come up with that idea?
