Evola and Right action

Thursday, 9 Dec 2021

Evola on Dr John Dunn. In his autobiography, The Path of Cinnabar,Julius Evola emphasised the goal of self-centring. How different to today’s post-modernist pursuit of the de-centring of the self. Indeed, in these opposing opinions about the nature of the self and its objectives we lay bare the truth of the Right-Left opposition, the real political bifurcation, not the pathetic banter between various branches of Marxism which passes for democratic debate in the mass-media.

Evola knew that the ‘I’ must be the centre of dominion and power, which for him was synonymous with creative power. To be at the centre of creation meant for Evola that it was ‘in fact necessary to put the I in the place of God’.

The rightful role of man according to Evola was to model the world after his thinking; and consciously being the master of his thinking he was tobe master of what the thinking produced. Again we are led to the true Right-Left bifurcation. Right is action. Left is passivity.
