Our Way of Life

"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done." - Ronald Reagan

The Cult of Leadership

For some reasons, I have come to hate the word “leadership”. With the State of the Union address, no doubt more people will be bandying it about. But what is leadership, and more importantly, what good is it? One can just as easily lead a pig to the slaughter, or a blind man into the ditch, it seems.

What the “vulgar masses” need, rather, is a sense of shame, something higher than themselves, something better than themselves, so that they can at least orient themselves towards the noble and away from the low.

My Return, As Such

Hello to all those who still check this blog occasionally; I apologies for failing to post anything in the last 6 weeks. In reality I have been away from the blogsphere for the most part, busy with work, various adjustments and such.

During the time I have been gone however, I have been doing considerable thinking and observing, resulting in a growing evolution in thought. Right now I am trying to read and study more in the meta-political direction. I have bought both "Ride the Tiger" and "Revolt Against the Modern World" Julius Evola, for example, and will be reading them soon.

One of the conclusions that I have reached is the need to destroy popular democracy, as it exists today. Another is the need to reject equality and instead "celebrate" hierarchy, in the sense of class, nobility, etc. From chaos, order must emerge. It is a principle of nature that things should have structure; how high or flat that hierarchy is may depend on the degree to which a people can handle liberty and maintain order, however it is naive to believe that a people can ever become so virtuous as to not require structure.

Perhaps I will flesh these ideas out more in the future, but for now this is all I will say. I am not sure how much I will be posting in the near future, however I am expecting to start a new blog sometime later this year, when I feel that I can express more comprehensive ideas properly.
