Sure enough, the fascist Evola…

Sure enough, the Upton review links to an article on Evola, Tradition, and exceptional, and dangerous, idiot, the symptomology of the Traditionalists.

The Conservative Revolution does not seek to preserve antique forms, but to actualize perennial principles. Pretty much the whole of politics and culture since 1789 should be overthrown.

Wow, what a concession, ‘does not seek to preserve antique forms’, and yet, 1789 has to be undone.

New Agers are actually susceptible to this kind of thing, especially in the better concealed versions of people like Ouspensky. Be forewarned.
Please study the French Revolution and its larger significance. You don’t have to be a fan of revolution to see the absurdity of this rightist legacy, which, in fact, goes back to the French Revolution period, Burke, et al. and the period of the Restoration.

To actualize perennnial principles, sounds great, but not so easy. Temporal beings are not spokesmen for the ‘eternal’.
