“ Beware lest any man cheat you by philosophy, and vain deceit; according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ:” – [Colossians 2:8]
“Up to the point that Fascism follows and defends these principles (sc. ‘principles that for us are always and absolutely the same’), up to that point we can consider ourselves Fascists. And that is all.” – Baron Julius Evola
We have moved on from outmoded ways and failed concepts. The supposed “Fascist worldview” is such a failure. “Fascism” is “an abstraction, corresponding to nothing existing in reality.” What Slavros and Zeiger cloaked in 1930s mystique is simply the teachings of the Traditionalist school with a bent towards worldly action, and a few drops of Savitri Devi’s and Miguel Serrano’s philosophy. People wish to bemoan the lack of “unity” on the Right, and more specifically, among those who call themselves (or use to call themselves) Fascists and National Socialists. There are appeals to Hitler and Rockwell for why we need to avoid religious divisiveness for the sake of the combating of a common enemy, i.e the Jew. The error here, is not understanding that unity could never have existed in the first place. “Traditionalism” is not some man made idea or system originating in Guenon’s or Evola’s heads, but an exposition on the Primordial Tradition handed down to our ancestors from God Himself. If Fascism is just Traditionalism, as it seemed Slavros came to understand before he left, then Fascism as a worldview is meaningless. You cannot be a “traditionalist at large”, you must adhere to a Tradition, and for those in the West, that Tradition is unabashedly Catholicism. This is the narrow path we follow. Fascism isn’t a path, but a sign aiming towards a path. It’s a stepping stone and nothing more. Those who get stuck on the way never make it to the end.
The main dividing line has always been religious, because religion is all encompassing. The smart pagans are now mild-mannered followers of Sanatana Dharma, and the smart Christians are spending their time exploring the depths of the Tradition. Our duty is to retain knowledge of this Tradition and keep it secure from the cataclysm that will destroy the Modern World and usher in the next Golden Age. Of course, that’s assuming Christ’s Second Coming doesn’t simply end the cycles like in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the statue smashed by the boulder that became a mountain. Let the Lord’s vengeance carry itself out via useful idiots, just like it always has in the past. The Assyrians were judged for their role in punishing Israel, and the Babylonians were judged for their role in punishing Judah. The forces that the System will unleash against itself will be judged, just as those forces will be the judgement upon the System. All things possess the seeds of their own destruction.
We cannot serve two masters. If “Fascism” is synonymous with the so called “worldview of truth”, then we have to say that to truly be a “fascist” is to be a Christian. For if a Christian truly believes he is following “the way, the truth and the life”, he perforce cannot admit any other worldview, philosophical system or ideology to be equal to the revelation of the living God come down to us in the god-man, Jesus Christ. Either “fascism” as a means of designating ourselves is a superfluous synonym for “Christianity”, or we are dealing with competing truth claims. If the latter, then the idea that there is a “worldview of truth” separate from Christianity must be wholly rejected and discarded.
“I’m a follower of truth, first and foremost. Truth is my religion, truth is my guide, my master. And truth doesn’t come from any man-made ideology. If it’s an idea that someone dreamed up, then it’s a definitely a falsehood. Truth comes from nature herself, from the universe. It just is.”
This is why Ecclesiastes said there is “nothing new under the sun.” Falsehood must arise out of novel, human ideas, because Truth is entirely opposed to novelty and human fallibility. Hitler’s biological materialism (“The race question is the key to world history and to all human civilization”) and his party’s gross misunderstanding of Nietzsche’s Übermensch, Mussolini’s statolatry and Pierce’s pantheism, to name a few, are all man made falsehoods. The reality is that such men can only be invoked if the ideas they are mouthpieces for are true. Surely they said a mixture of truth and falsehood, but that’s the problem. If any of the supposed “Champions” of the “Fascist worldview” disagree on fundamentals, then it’s all just a subjective abstraction to claim some unified, monolithic “Fascism” opposed to the “worldview of lies.” As a poignant example, Hitler identifies the nation as the race, and de Rivera identifies the nation as a “universality”, and explicitly denies the nation is the race. How two opposing fundamental beliefs can be held by both “Champions” is, frankly, beyond me.
It is true there is a fundamental dichotomy of Truth and Falsehoods, but such a dichotomy requires an anchor. That anchor is the point of relation. In Christianity, this anchor is the Godhead, His revelation in Holy Scripture, the unanimous teachings of the Church Fathers and the Magisterium. The principle of non-contradiction is preserved here, and is an unchanging fountain of Truth. Whatever is in opposition to this anchor is ipso facto false, and whatever is in congruence with this anchor is ipso facto true. There is no other anchor, no other point of reference, and no other means of discerning what is correct from what is false. Make your choice, and make it carefully, because such a decision has eternal consequences
“ But if it seem evil to you to serve the Lord, you have your choice: choose this day that which pleaseth you, whom you would rather serve, whether the gods which your fathers served in Mesopotamia, or the gods of the Amorrhites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” – [Josue (Joshua) 24:15]
Hail Christ the King, and Hail Victory!
