Review by James J. O’Meara
Readers of Aristokratia I that were eagerly awaiting more — and who wouldn’t? — will be pleased that this esoteric but accessible project is continuing, with the latest results appearing in a new volume, Aristokratia II.
The nature of that project is ably explicated by the editor, K. Deva, in his opening contribution, “Unfashionable Observations: Philosophies Against Time.” While the title maintains a link to the subject of the first volume, Nietzsche, the subtitle alludes to Savitri Devi’s categorization of thinkers as of, above, or against Time. The writers and subjects of the Aristokratia group definitely see themselves as those who are working against Time, or more precisely, the times we live in.
Deva postulates that historical ideologies obey the same laws as physical objects, and as the democratic…

“I haven’t read the entire contents of the latest edition of this intellectual and deeply esoteric journal. It’s simply not that kind of book – i.e. the kind you race through and then dash off a quick review.
No, if you want to dash off a quick review – and I do because this journal deserves wider attention – the only way to do it is to glean what one can from a partially digested reading of this rich psychic and intellectual feast and then string a few sentences together, which is what I have done here. To read it fully and properly will be the work of several years, many rereads, and much contemplation.”
“The real choice in our modern age is between those who choose to see mankind as mere mushrooms, and those of us who have a higher and more spiritual…

Evola Tribute. The Spirit of Europe Compilation 
Internet Folly and the Decline of the West
(Guest post from the ubiquitous artist known only as KALKI).
Evola stated that we are now in the Kali Yuga, where the virtuous principles are at their lowest. Spengler too saw the West to be collapsing inwards from decay….indeed man is less free now than he was a free hundred years ago. People are born into work, work all their life in dull routine jobs to pay off debt, and die in debt. We are all slaves belonging to the Third Estate and without breaking the power of the mercantile class, we will remain as thralls of the corporations.
But the nature of slavery itself prevents the ascent of man – trapped in these positions, he can no longer learn, no longer achieve or reach his potential. Exhausted and wearied, Western man curls up broken and dies a little each day. As his will breaks, so too does his spirit – love of the nation is replaced by patriotism to football, admiration of the feminine to pornography with sexuality becoming a disposable commodity, nutrition replaced with convenience, the warrior ethos with the adulation of alcohol, and women with ‘(fe)MEN’.
As his spirit breaks it retreats into an animalistic and vegetative state that reflects the nature of decline – man becomes stupid, foolish; believing all the television tells him, taking internet posts as gospel over ancient wisdom. Finally, YouTube becomes God, Wikipedia its Gospel, internet forums its Apocrypha. The banal, like Mammon rises to power, ruling though greed and cultivating ignorance.
Nowhere is the folly of humanity more prevalent than it is on the internet, where those who cannot achieve flock to voice their opinions like petulant children. The amount of time wasted on trivial matters involving the internet is what holds you all down, breeding cognitive dissonance in the same manner that rotten fruit breeds maggots.
Strong words? Yes. The internet is making you all turn into fools. It is not the pinnacle of human development. It is not accurate, not correct, and much of its content persists of outright lies and deliberately spread disinformation. The internet is a massive book of bullshit, and a website is just one page in billions of pages of bullshit. Taking it seriously only leads to cognitive dissonance and is a sure route to grievous folly.
While it can be a marvellous tool to spread important messages, it is also used to disperse slander and there is no greater fool than one who spreads incorrect information. The boy who called ‘wolf’ when there was none was a fool – when the wolf finally arrived on his door, no one would believe him because they knew him to be liar.
The nature of the age and the medium cultivates great acts of folly. Renounce it. Turn your computer off – do not gossip, do not spread disinformation. Educate yourself, become powerful and neither the fools nor the Kali Yuga will trouble you more. Only be doing such can the West be saved from its deep decline into asinine and bourgeois decadence.
This is maya; this is illusion. What is here does not exist and never did. Get offline and reclaim your life.
“America too, in the essential way it views life and the world, has created a “civilization” that represents the exact contradiction of the ancient European Tradition. It has introduced the religion of praxis and productivity; it has put the quest for profit, great industrial production, and mechanical, visible and qualitative achievements over and above any other interest. It has generated a soulless greatness of a purely technological and collective nature, lacking any background of transcendence, inner light and true spirituality. America has also put the view in which man is considered in terms of quality and personality within an organic system in opposition with that view in which man becomes a mere instrument of production and material productivity within a conformist and social conglomerate. ”
– Julius Evola, Revolt Against the Modern World
“When a civilisation is reaching its end, it is difficult to achieve anything by resisting it and by directly opposing the forces in motion. The current is too strong; one would be over-whelmed. The essential thing is not to let oneself be impressed by the omnipotence and apparent triumph of the forces of the epoch. These forces, devoid of connection with any higher principle, are in fact on a short chain. One should not become fixated on the present and on things at hand, but keep in view the conditions that may come about in the future.”
