“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.

JDS: PROJECT UPDATES 8.17.08

PROJECT UPDATES 8.17.08
I am nowhere near specifying a release date for any of these, or the order in which they may be finished and published, but here is a progress report for anyone interested in what is in the works:

PROJECT FAUST: The first draft is up to approximately 400 pages at this point, and I am only 1/3-1/2 done with the first draft. At this stage it is focused primarily on Western Civilization, although I will probably include appendices dealing with non-Western material of note. It makes sense, in keeping with the Faustian theme to maintain a Eurocentric focus. That also liberates it to be tied to other projects.

STUDIES IN SATANISM: The next installment of collected essays following the same basic format and structure as ESSAYS IN SATANISM. I have quite a bit done, but a LOT more I want to do before I call it a book. I want to have at least 500 pages worth of essays before publishing it.

COLLECTED POLITICAL ESSAYS: As yet untitled. This is a collection of social and political essays, criticism, book reviews etc. I have quite a bit done on this. Some of it is very controversial and should be of interest even to people who aren’t particularly interested in politics. There is something here to make everyone unhappy! So far this book or PROJECT FAUST is most likely to be the next thing published.

On a side-note; I have also been tinkering with expanding the DEEP SATANISM essay from ESSAYS IN SATANISM into a small book under that title. I’m still undecided as to how I want to handle some of the material, but it is a possibility.

I am hoping to have another book out, one of these, before the end of 2008.

Thank You to everyone who read ESSAYS IN SATANISM and have been supportive of my projects.
