Evola’s Metaphysics of War

           I can understand why Julius Evola believed that Fascism was the most appropriate government for the Modern Age. To Evola, and other Traditionalists, the myth of progress is just that, for they believe that we are all currently experiencing the fourth and final age in a great cycle of slowly diminishing ages; we face an iron age years removed from a long lost golden age, which was itself followed by a silver age, and that age by a bronze. The ancients knew of once obvious truths that are now all but forgotten. To a man who saw modernity as the dark end of history, Fascism probably seemed like the most fitting manifestation for a world of blind slaves to the bourgeoisie drudging docilely to the end of the Kali Yuga.

          I'm sorry to have written so little this month, but I have been productive in other ways. I hope those of you who are waiting for me to put up new content derive some measure of enjoyment from this short article on Evola's Metaphysics of War that I found elsewhere:
