“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.

Democracy is a Fallacy and a Lie


The "if smart people voted" argument is invalid.

"Democracy" is defined by majority, the same that defines "Mediocrity." Mediocrity and Democracy are intrinsically identical - that is what "Representative" Democracy was trying to over-ride. Representative Democracy means the "average" (mediocre) people select representatives most representative of their mediocrity.

The selections offered are pre-selected by vested interest to insure their vested interests are served first, if not exclusively. Representative Democracy means rigged sleaze. So we have Rigged Sleaze manipulating and corralling Mediocrity.

"Smart People" are grossly outnumbered by mediocre/average people. The "votes" of "smart" people will just be absorbed in the mass of idiocy and the rigged system. So the "Lets turn this thing around" rhetoric is as futile on this point as it is on others. The system you have is exactly what you get with the system you have.

Don't question anyone's intelligence because of who they vote for. Question their intelligence because they vote at all.
