With unflinching gaze and uncompromising intensity Julius Evola analyzes the spiritual and cultural malaise at the heart of Western civilization and all that passes for progress in the modern world. But Evola expresses deep pessimism about the likelihood of civilization coming to its senses.
The traditional world is timeless. Indeed, anyone who puts forward a spiritual argument for moderrn the modern, scientific, capitalist world is echoing some of Evola’s key themes.
One is the path of the god, the solar path, which leads to the dwelling of the immortals. Thus, by definition, it is concerned with the inessential. Another type of Bronze Age civilization was the Amazonian. Their spirit provided we can still talk about a spirit in their case feeds only on sensations tevolt on dynamism, thus becoming the vehicle for the incarnation of darker forces.
Democracy was really a victory of Asia Minor. The empire is magical. A Russian bombardment permanently crippled Evola at the very end of the war, while he was doing research in Vienna for the SS into the history of secret societies.
There is an outer law for public order, but this is complemented by a recognized esoteric tradition, complete with a efola of initiation. In a revised agaknst augmented edition was published. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

Thereupon, by virtue of this, these events or beings shift from one time to another, becoming new expressions of preexisting realities…[W]e must look for the true meaning of characters who become ‘invisible,’ who ‘never died,’ and who are destined to ‘reawaken’ or to manifest themselves at the end of a given time, such as Alexander the Great, King Arthur, ‘Frederick,’ and King Sebastian.
In what many consider to be his masterwork, Evola contrasts the characteristics of the modern world with those of traditional societies, from politics and institutions to views on life and death.
Well, I don’t know. Definitely worth a read, and in my case definitely worth a re-read. Even the lower castes, like the guild craftsmen of the middle ages, viewed membership in their trade communities as a spiritual vocation, a position allotted to them in a divine order; and so even the crafting of tables or the laying of bricks took on a sacred dimension and was thus a source of great inner satisfaction for the craftsman.
I’m aware Evola tries to claim the Romans as the last vestige of Tradition to sidestep this thorny issue, but I’m sorry, I just don’t see how an army that was initially composed of Plebeian yeoman and later even lower scum of the earth can possibly count as the glorious Kshatriya warrior caste. The ultimate cause of decline is supernatural: Such as the origin of Indo-Aryan civilisation in Hyperborea, the founding of Atlantis, and things like that.
Osiris is a mere vegetation god: The adulteration and decline of civilizations [are] caused by an event of the same order…when a race has lost contact…with the world of Being…then the collective organisms that a race has generated…are destined to descend into the world of contingency.
Revolt Against the Modern World by Julius Evola
Often in traditional societies, the aristocratic cult seeks liberation from the ancestral totems, but the popular cult simply facilitates the desire of the chthonic forces to incarnate in human beings. Evola is not fond of Christianity, and finds in it the seeds of civilizational decline. He used hallucinogenic drugs.
Filthy, disgusting plebs trampled on the warrior aristocracies of Hispania, Gaul, and the Near East for a thousand years. Did Tradition have a physical, or purely a metaphysical reality? The Saturn of the Saturnalia, which recalls the transition, was actually a chthonic demon. Society becomes violent, warlike even in its deities. The Nephilim of Genesis 6: His understanding of Christianity is appallingly bad though he does have some sympathy for Eastern Orthodoxy.
Its law is truth, worthy of unconditional obedience. We see decay beginning in ancient Egypt, when immortality became democratic at the end of the Sixth Dynasty.
The King of the World is an archetype, and also a legend of a real earthly ruler. Evola dislikes Christianity because it relativised the warrior caste society, or so he thinks.

Their ways contain only fragments of the ways of the primordial people. There are further tensions. America and Russia are fundamentally convergent. Perhaps the very svola of measurement is anti-Tradition, an artefact of the “science that degraded and democratized the very notion of knowledge by establishing the uniform criterion of truth and certainty based on the soulless world revollt numbers”. During his trial inEvola denied being a Fascist and instead referred to himself as a “superfascist”.
To die for Sophia was to achieve immortality. With such an evolw negation of communication, it comes as no surprise read this if you want to elevate your pain to a state of divinity and dissociate, like a child, into an unrecognizable reality, filled with spectacular arcane blood rites that evoke numen.
