1844-1900 – German thinker, writer, and epochal phenomenon – herald of nihilism and advocate of the Übermensch. A symbol of his time’s growing Dissolution, like Socrates, in many ways much more painfully aware of his place in history. A fatal riddler, and an unyielding razor edge against answers more self-satisfying than satisfactory.
The first world. On the surface (by the superficial, all that is ever seen), a pinnacle of (vulgar) virtue, (corrupt) justice, and (expedient) truth, which modernist monument is capped with the technology and prosperity which form the only real measure of worth to a “civilization” too hunched and stunted to dare reaching Higher. Beneath that surface? Some of the foulest stagnation and filth ever conceivable in opposition to our noble Destiny, a teeming mass of parasites and evolutionary ballast suckling from the wounds of those few crumbling dupes still blind enough to stand between Satyá and Kalîyugá.
And the same willful blindness to the wretched reality underlying the modernist utopia is behind the total misplacing of the causes behind the first world’s thusly-considered ‘success’. Much like the wonderfully self-destructive hubris of modern Jews grown too bold – too many of the advocates of failing modernity have grown up actually believing their grandfathers’ propaganda and lies, rather than realizing the hidden-away but very real machinations really supporting the Lie. Machinations requiring the efforts and indeed the sacrifices of better men than the (((parasites))) and other scum profitting from the filth growing upon Civilization’s corpse.
We hope you enjoyed our light-hearted humour of last night – now with the evening’s magick retreated into memory and back to our more usually serious, all-too-serious selves we hope to revisit the theme of yesterday’s quote with a complementary one tonight.
Charming as yesterday’s photo was – and there are so many like it from the days of the Reich’s sunshine and promise – we all know that it only presaged a bleakly tragic Struggle for bare existence against the world-forces determined to snuff out the flame of our great Ideal.
Was yesterday’s post a bit grim? If only that could be helped while maintaining full conscientiousness towards the truth – but that truth Is, that anyone loyal to ideals of honour, beauty, cleanliness, or any higher virtue is going to find themselves set upon by default by those whose lack of higher ideals causes them to see anything grand or lofty or noble – as a threat.
Of course, to pursue Mastery in the Art of self-creating is to eventually flow into Mastery’s later developments, those of the Art of world-creating. To artfully and masterfully create oneself in motion is to begin truly affecting the world in motion about oneself.
