MINVRA has shown, that the left and right, liberal, or conservative have — in their attempts to bag people they associate with the Dissident Right into one category — all attacked theosophists and traditionalists philosophers in articles, back to even Hegel, though excusing Karl Marx. Poor Hegel. It is very odd, as I come across Progressives so adamantly hateful of Fascists, and yet in the next moment, palm off reasons why Antifa, Karl Marx and the Socialists should get a fair-hearing. Yet, these people never research Evola’s criticisms of the Fascists; and say, he is responsible for the modern neo-fascists. For any of us to hence consciously, or deliberately bend our ideas to therefore only appeal to either political side in this country, or anywhere else would be profoundly naive. Therefore, my critiques of U.S. President Donald Trump are on principle, and I think, we would not be “Minerva-like” at all, if we served as political propaganda for this current administration, despite the insurmountable information and evidences accumulating for over a decade and presently on this individual. It has nothing to do with being left, centrist, contrarian, or right. I know, that certain Fascists (who identify as Fascists) supported the man’s election for presidency. But I cannot, and the man is not even philosophically or religiously astute. As you can see, I am utterly disenchanted with American politics right now.
Even from the White House media propaganda, President #Trump has sponsored advertisement rallying his cult flock to defend him on the tired trope of fake news media, by saying “they’re attacking President Trump” and I’m sitting there like…

I could not possibly defend President Trump without being dishonest, and losing my mind. But consider why we are being bombarded with the positives of Marx and Socialism, but with the negatives of Mussolini and Fascism. It is not obvious, as we are told, “because Fascism is violent and antisemitic.” I cannot feed you a coherent picture, based on the facts I have gathered, because there isn’t one, which any particular historian or political theorist has yet “fairly” given. I would love Marx to be included in the daily political conversations, but that opens the cat in the bag, because though Marx can be considered apart of the republican tradition, socialists are excluded in American political dialogue. I would suggest, if you disagree with them, you have to argue against them, but you cannot exclude them. Just as socialist philosophers have a claim to the republican tradition, so do the Alt-Right, or white racists.
The country has changed, but we act as if we are all on the same page, and we’re not. There are some things, they address, that are being ignored, and capitalized on by right-wing politicians, and the weakest answer is to repeat ad nauseam, “that’s racist.”
I am bound to no man, and will not betray my principles, conscience, and ethics any longer. We still find this attempt to draw wild analogies between Trump and Bannon supporters with the traditionalist philosophers, by those who believe they are harbingers of justice, exposing the “Neo-fascists” (i.e. right-wingers) penetrating the subculture, just because Bannon reads Julius Evola, who was not a fascist intellectual. In their attempt in doing so, they are going after so many past intellectuals and deconstructing so much, that they are eventually gnawing at the foundations of those they are trying to pass off to us, such as Marx, and subverting the meaning of what Republicanism is, for their agendas. Does anyone realize the issue in this:
The Political Left: “We Hate Fascism!”
The Political Left: “Give Marx a chance! Communism is not a synonym for evil. That was Stalinism; not real Communism. A century and a half later, lies about communism are still spread!”
They hate Jordan Peterson so much. The man is not perfect, and I understand the critique of his flaws, but they are now even going after his toxic fandom on the Alt-Right — or the young men in our society trying to find answers (The religious hunger that drives Jordan Peterson’s fandom). I could not hear between all of the conflicting chatter, so I took it upon myself to study both Marx and Fascist Philosophy in more depth, which I was already familiar with. We will handle the issue differently from theosophists, who are understandably very quick to simply say, “there are absolutely no connections between Theosophy and Fascist Philosophy,” or they are the reverse of each other. The point is to always find the truth, before your enemy does, as they have, or believe they have already found the crux of the new right, whom they call “fascists.”
Regarding the topics on Theosophy versus National Socialism, we are going to be honest with you. I am not a conspiracist, and never will be regarding this belief in an Illuminati controlling the world, because the theory from its inception was and remains based on lies, and insinuating various groups. I cannot possibly see how any real American, any true republican could adopt such a theory, without eventually believing that republicanism itself should be rid of. I go by the historical facts, and the truth is not coherent.
Take a look at this critique of Evola, reeking of jealousy:
“As an enemy of democracy and a believer in the caste system, he was so steeped in legends inspired by the rigid order of spiritual paganism as to believe in history as a cycle likely to resurrect in some form Hesiod’s Golden Age and a return to the Age of the demigods (Achilles and suchlike). He so fancied himself as an inspirational figure that he choreographed his own death in that fashion.” (Alfio Bernabei review of Social and Political Thought of Julius Evola by Paul Furlong, Julius Evola: A Dangerous Beast)
They are so desperate, that now they are comparing Evola to Jordan Peterson, and there has been this attempt therefore to pigeon-hole all of these people into this category of dissident right, e.g., even with Sam Harris, though he keeps saying, “I’m a liberal and left on many issues.” While, there are people in our day of the Alt-Right fantasizing about the era of National Socialism, Evola on the other hand, one of the most honest philosophers on the subject, argued that it had positive aspects, also recognized that this political era is over. Fascism is in the past.
There is no need to mythologize it.
JULIUS EVOLA ON THE
MYTHOLOGIZATION OF FASCISM
“Mythologization has naturally gone hand in hand with idealization, so that only the positive aspects of the Fascist regime are highlighted, deliberately or unconsciously playing down the negative ones. The same procedure is practiced the other way round by those who represent anti-nationalist forces, their mythologization leading to systematic denigration, the aspects with a view to discrediting it and making everyone hate it. (…)
Over and above any polemical one-sidedness, those who, unlike the ‘nostalgics’ of the younger generation, have lived through Fascism and have thus had a direct experience of the system and its men, know and acknowledge that not everything about it was in order. As long as Fascism existed and could be considered a movement of reconstruction in the making, one of yet unrealized and un-crystallized possibilities, it was still permissible not to criticize it beyond a certain limit. And those who, like ourselves, while defending a set of ideas which only partially coincided with Fascism (and with German National Socialism), did not condemn these movements, even though fully aware of their questionable or aberrant aspects, did so precisely because we counted on future possible developments—to be encouraged with every means and strength we could muster–which might have corrected or eliminated these aspects.
Today, when that Fascism lies behind us as a historical reality, our attitude cannot be the same. Instead of idealizing it in a way consistent with the ‘myth’ of Fascism, what is necessary now is to separate the positive from the negative, not just for theoretical reasons, but for practical guidance with an eventual political struggle in mind. Thus we should not accept the adjective ‘fascist’ or ‘neo-fascist’ tout court; we should call ourselves fascist (if we feel we must) in respect of what was positive about Fascism, not fascist in respect of what Fascism was not. (…)”
So far I believe what I’m looking for in political outlook doesn’t entirely exist yet.
“Fascist!” yells the contemporary ignoramus.
