“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.

In Praise of Vigilantism

Vigilantism is underrated and inevitable when violent crime overrides whatever little deterrent effect official law enforcement has in such conditions.

"Civilized" people don't understand it, but it created order and civil society in the frontier west before there was institutionalized law enforcement. Likewise, it will create order if/when institutionalized law enforcement is obsolete or ineffectual.

The now-cliche "an armed society is a polite society" was more than a quaint slogan, it was the way things worked. If you cheated or acted out of line, you got shot. If a known and respected man or woman was robbed or killed, their friends (and friends of friends) hunted down the culprit and hanged them from the nearest tree. Your personal safety depended on having friends and being generally respected, which in turn was achieved by being straight and trustworthy with people, and maintaining established relationships in a productive way.

Apparently society has reached the point where it has to break down before it can re-create itself again.

There will come a day, probably sooner than later, when the meter will run out on exactly how much bullshit people are willing to endure from the subhuman criminal sediment at the bottom of the barrel before people start lynching scumbags en masse.

When that day comes I'll be passing out ammo and teaching people how to tie hangman's nooses.
