This is important, and sacred. The best understanding that can be had from this web-medium is not a brief definition here but a study and meditation on, particularly, those articles appended with this tag.
If you’ve been thinking lately that the admins are on a major arts binge, you’re quite right – even compared to usual. If you’ve recognized the recent homages to the fine sculptures of the masterly Arno Breker, you’re not only right – even compared to usual – but possessing admirable taste! If you’ve wondered just how practical the matters of the arts are to the very serious concerns of Right Wing Philosophy and the world it seeks to come to grips with and master – well, you’re not wrong, because to wonder means to question, and to question is the very beginning of a long process that (with some endurance) will lead to finding answers. In case our answers can be of some help along your way, here are a few pertinent thoughts on the arts and their importance within the context of Right Wing Philosophy.
Tradition rejects the notion of equality. It rejects the notion of egalitarianism and inherent value. Your value, instead, is derived from your use to the tribe. Because value is derived from one’s actions instead of an ability to not assume room temperature, it behooves every man within this system to assume greater duties to family and state, rather than complaining about his “rights” under egalitarianism.
Within this vein of thinking, physical prowess stands as tantamount to the foundation of a great temple to a God. With the cultivation of physical prowess, one learns discipline, how to push through pain, and how the mind conquers the body. With its mastery, one finds physical conflict to be less dangerous and more a tool to defend oneself, one’s family and nation. One is better able to withstand hardships and can attract a more suitable mate.
Pushing forward, one learns what it means to be a God among Men. What is a God if he is not omnipotent? A man who embraces physical training learns what it means to succeed where others fail, and tales of omnipotence follow shortly after. He learns what it means to possess Divinity within His own Temple.
When heirs of a high culture express pride in their heritage, it’s easy to jump straight to the pleasant fruits and flowers of a given folk-tree, skimming shelteredly past the tough and hardened trunk that keeps the tree alive. We are often wont to dwell on beautiful music or refined statuary, courtly manners or honourable comportment.
And these are all good things, these are all important things and well worth treasuring – but when confronted with the destructors and polluters of high cultures who are either bent on their destruction or whose presence is simply incompatible with human civilization, we must never neglect seeing to the tough bark and sharp thorns that can see our respective civilizational trees survive to flourish heavenward and grow the most beautiful fruits and flowers yet.
While the ‘Philosophy’ portion of our page’s name makes a wonderful excuse for waxing eloquent (or in this admin’s case, at least long-winded) on more abstruse explorations beyond the limitations of the current social orthodoxy, it’s often beneficial to return from the elaborate and even from the abstract – to what is really an essential spiritual core of Right Wing Philosophy.
At its heart, Right Wing Philosophy stands for Natural Truths, truths that reveal themselves from looking honestly at the real world around us – real as in, sans temporary and arbitrary ‘bubbles’ created by human or subhuman artifice – and viewing as True that which matches and complements Nature, for instance:
