“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 NEXT BOOK

I'm not going to repeat the ongoing announcement scenario as I did with my last book, but I will say this much:

What started out as a collection of essays hived off into several other book projects all of which alternated over time as the focus of my attention, getting a little done on all of them and a lot done on none of them, the end result being that none of them seem likely to be finished in a timely manner.
This process has come full circle with my decision to consolidate material from all of the projects back into one collection of essays on a broad range of topics, which is already enough to put out as a slim volume of 100+ pages or so.

I don't want to put out a slim volume of 100+ pages, so I'm putting it to the grindstone to finish several longer articles, of similar size and scope as some of the previously unpublished articles that appeared in Essays in Satanism, to bring the project to a more respectable quantity and quality of material.

So I'm hoping to have everything together for release sometime within the next few months.

.....for those of you who are interested.

Thank You for your support and for the interest you have shown in my previous book ESSAYS IN SATANISM.

HS!
