“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.

Anders Behring Breivik and the Oslo incident

I honestly have not been following all the details and only read about the first 150 pages or so of his manifesto. (Kudos to Kevin I. Slaughter for beating all the journalists in the world in finding Breivik's manifesto). From what I read most of his pro-Israel anti-Islam spiel was identifiably derived from Bernard Lewis and Robert Spencer - in other words straight from the Regnery/Conservative Book Club catalog.

Ideologically he left a lot to be desired. He was basically a Norwegian Fox News Conservative, which means Zionist/Christian Flake. He had more in common with the US "Tea Party" ideology than he did with anything having actual merit along the lines of the European "New Right", which I am far more in sympathy with, but that is good because they can tangibly distance themselves from his actions.

Even with his intellectual handicap (mainstream Kosher conservatism) he had the wit to target the actual agents of decline - Left/Labor Party - where they hurt, namely their youth, which is making a point about the future. Makes far more sense to target people effectively opening the doors to illegal immigration than to target the immigrants themselves. Here anyone with half a brain would be hard pressed to choose between Liberal Democrats vs. Conservative Republicans. (Obama has actually done more vs. illegal immigration than Bush ever did, which is saying almost nothing).

More recent news claims Breivik intended to target the PM. There is a lot to be said for targeted killing of politicians. The worst thing about the Kennedy assassinations (JFK/RFK) is that they didn't also assassinate Ted Kennedy. Following the damage trail of his political career is like following a plague bacillus that should have been quarantined and eliminated before it had a chance to proliferate.

His position is probably a no-win situation at this point and his actions are tailor made to be spun into any number of agendas by his "enemies" that will be more effective for their ends than his. But if he acted alone he gets high marks for damage inflicted, especially in the 90 minute shooting spree.

Interesting assessment of Brevik's possible co-conspirators here: http://japanfocus.org/-Peter_Dale-Scott/3590
No proof, of course.
