“The so-called 'Left-Hand Path' - that of Kaulas, Siddhas and Viras - combines the... Tantric worldview with a doctrine of the Ɯbermensch 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 shvecchacarÄ«, 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.

My Opinion on the so-called "Ron Paul Revolution"

Because someone asked: "I'm curious what your thoughts might be with regard to those that maintain that Paul is a "ringer", siphoning off legitimate dissent, not to mention loads of money that never seemed to be used properly? I'm speaking as a person who really isn't sure,who voted in the primaries for the first time since Reagan's first term;for Ron Paul,naturally. I think that an interesting number of points are raised by the folks who maintain that he has been groomed for this role for the last 30 or 40 years...after all,he quoted freakin' TROTSKY when he announced that he was cutting staff numbers back considerably,and was more concerned with retaining his seat in Texas. I realize that you are one of the last folks to jump on a 'conspiracy theory' bandwagon, and your opinion is one which holds quite a bit of weight for me. Thanks in advance, Magister Sass."

My Reply:

Returning to the constitution and the gold standard are about as meaningful as pasting a band-aid on whats left of someone who has had 3/4ths of their head blown off. America First Isolationism is not going to happen. No chance. The structure is in place in the form of an elaborate matrix of vested interests that would be harder to dismantle than the most securely-built fortress because it is ubiquitous and invulnerable to piecemeal destruction.

Ron Paul got as far as he did by being a pressure-release mechanism blowing off a little steam. For most people watching Ron Paul is like watching George Carlin, it is a katharsis, like people stuck in a miserable marriage feel better for fifteen minutes after giving the other a "piece of their mind" then they slide right back to the same routine. "Dissent" is irrelevant aside from whatever momentary relief it affords the dissenter. That or a form of suicide-by-institution if it reaches armed response point.
The best you can hope for is to live in a place where what goes on in the cities or government simply does not matter.
