I write believing there may be others with the same intimations of thought, with far more credibility, experience, and research ahead of me who could correct, and even guide, or instruct me. I am mainly concerned with this civilization, and its advancement, like so many others. Yet, it seems like sailing in the winds. These conversations are only occurring in the private world of academic journals and law schools, out of the reach of common people; and in both the areas of ESOTERIC Studies and Politics. I don’t want to focus there, though there, is where you obtain your credentials, so I’ve no choice, but to work on publishing, continue schooling, and mostly for my own sake. If such persons are reading this, or exist, those are the ones I am looking for along the way. I am interested primarily in establishing an association of persons capable of thinking with foresight into the future, and it desires to be an underlying mover and influence in the game of things. If I cannot find associates and colleagues, I must be at the starting line, and therefore only hope we’ll be the one, or apart of a circle at the finishing line; but something will come of all this. The few today are aging, and leaving few disciples left. No two minds rarely think alike, and one could hardly attain to some intimation, or connect with us without some fundamental historical and ideological facts, or consulting the same line of research as we do, and others have completed before us.
What is at stake, and what this is about is much more than DEMOCRACY. One has to read, and possess the proper sources, and the right translators, editors, and annotators often. There has been much critique of ‘dark web intellectuals,’ as being pseudo-intellectuals, and one should not want to be a pseudo-intellectual.
It is very important therefore, that we know what we’re talking about, and making mistakes, but aiming to modify and correct our positions and critiques is essential to success, and establishing legitimacy. As of right now, the instructive book you should find and read, as I return to and spin-off in research from is — Carl Cohen’s “Communism, Fascism, and Democracy: The Theoretical Foundations.”
The theoretical FOUNDATIONS of this systems of government and political schools of thought are important to understand, just as it is with Theology, Analogetics and Hyponoia (i.e., Comparative Studies, Mythography, Esotericism.
This book, which many college professors use in their courses on Political Theory, includes the direct writings by Friedrich Engels, Robert Owen, Georg W.F. Hegel, Karl Marx, Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Leon Trotsky, Mao Tse-tung, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Machiavelli, Friedrich Nietzsche, Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, John Locke, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Edmund Burke, Thomas Jefferson, Jeremy Bentham, John Stuart Mill, John C. Calhoun, John Dewey, George Bernard Shaw, Russell A. Kirk, Norman Thomas, Friedrich A. Hayek, Pericles, and Alexis de Tocqueville, and others.
It is interesting, because the roots of Fascism are given in the work. I would add, not only Mussolini’s The Doctrine of Fascism, but the Manifesto of San Sepolcro and The Verona Manifesto, The Diary of the Will, The Fascist Movement in Italian Life, Palmieri’s The Philosophy of Fascism, Gentile’s The Philosophic Basis of Fascism and The General Theory of the Spirit, the Constitution of Fiume (and Fiume’s history and D’Annunzio’s view on it), Mazzini’s Thinking, the History of French Revolution and British Republicanism and the Risorgimento. There is a historical and ideological link, more than we would like to admit, between American Republicanism, and British, Greek and Italian Thought and Culture. The use of the term Fascism has become greatly commonplace, but with it, we are unwilling to find, that in our own governing philosophy, lies certain particular foundations of Fascism, interior to Italian life. Any form of national belonging is characterized as FASCISTIC in our day, including the constructed new contrasts between Patriotism and Nationalism, that equate Nationalism with Fascism, which are word-attachments linked through the masses to World War II, death, Jews and concentration camps, i.e., human evil.
But, take this attitude, or national SPIRIT of Camaraderie in La Marseillaise. Generic, yet it will do. It is a very familiar and loving sense of vitality and sister-brotherhood, that is being gnawed at by particular minds of our political age, like last hanging bacilli. While, good policies are needed for the health of the nation and people, a republic needs unification, changed hearts, and fed stomachs; and that begins with the health of the people, but never underestimate the divine in them — REPUBLICANISM characterized by this occult doctrine. Égalité! fraternité! the old republican revolutionaries and soldiers yell. Liberté! or give me death, ou la mort! You see, REPUBLICANISM is romantic, but it is also built on abstract concepts in movement in the bodies and rationale of men and women. It is a Civil Theology and Philosophy IN ACTION. Shades of this thinking exist in our political language, and our social language about politics, but not in its fullest glory, from what I am finding, that it should. This philosophy of life trumps ‘party politics,’ and supersedes the political players in office now, equated with “Fascists.” We’re destroying ourselves.
But the foundations are what will help us rebuild in the future, when they’re forgotten.
