“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.

What to Expect on the Home Front during Cold War II

As things heat up with Russia, with proxy conflicts intensifying in Georgia, Ukraine, Bolivia, and Venezuela, expect there to be Cold War style clandestine and covert subversion within the USA using front organizations and collaborators. A recent bulletin from Stratfor included the following observations:
Another consideration is that ideological change in Russia could mean Moscow
will reach out to radical groups that the KGB traditionally did not deal with.
While many KGB officers didn’t completely buy in to communist ideology, the
Communist credo did serve as both a point of attraction and a limiting factor in
terms of whom the Soviets dealt with. Since the Russian state is no longer bound
by Soviet ideology — it is really all about power and profit these days — that
constraint is gone. The Russians are now free to deal with a lot of people and
do a lot of things they could not do in Soviet times.
For example, former Ku
Klux Klan leader David Duke is very popular in Moscow and very well-connected
there, as are a number of other American white nationalists. There are also
close contacts between various neo-Nazi, skinhead and nationalist groups in
Europe and their Russian counterparts. These contacts could be a very easy way
for the Russians to make contact with and support radical elements of the
far-right in places like the United States, Ukraine, the Baltic states and
Germany.

During Cold War I, left wing groups were the most common collaborators with the USSR for obvious ideological reasons, and were reasonably the most frequently targeted by FBI for investigation and infiltration. If Communists were embedded in Right Wing groups it was as infiltrators or agents provocateur. Right Wing groups, even Racial Nationalist groups, were generally immune from suspicion at least as far as being Communist collaborators.

This is no longer true. Duke's documented activities in Russia along with Russia's new found freedom from Communist ideological restraints will provide a pretext for increased Federal monitoring, surveillance, and/or targeting of overtly anti-communist right wing Racial/Nationalist groups within the USA. Especially as the situation heats up... and the situation is going to heat up.

Now is the time to be very aware of where your publicly professed loyalties fall, and to be aware of where your name and address turn up on the membership rosters and subscription lists of various organizations and publications.

This is today's public service announcement.

Maybe this time around the general public will be infected with far-right ideas instead of the far-left infection we saw during and after the first Cold War.

Fun fun fun.

This may or may not be off topic- I think it's on, but here goes: Has anyone heard news from or about Robert Greene, author of the Power, Seduction, and War books?

The reason I ask is that I can't seem to find anything on Rudius' message board, and he stopped posting in Feb.

I read his entries concerning a signing tour he did in Russia last spring, very interesting and well worth a read, and was curious to see if he'd any opinions on the current conflict.
