    Industrialisation & globalisation apparently have no further history to make regardless of innovations to come. In other words: much is simply being re-cycled with new faces of false promises. Those ‘false promises’ are nothing more but tactics driving a deeper wedge between the European soul and its bioculture.

    It is the wedge of constant consumerism and spiritless fornication, which have become gruesome manifestations each for their own sake. Yes, I state ‘gruesome’, and without question.

    Question: can elements of a technocracy work hand-in-hand with Tradition, and not violate her ancient wisdom? I, for one do not know.

    The song used in this video is Heimatfreund & Staatsfeind by Von Thronstahl from the album Germanium Metallicum.

    This is a masterful video. Not sure if the individual who uploaded also created it, but it’s well done.
    An excellent intro to Guenon and Radical Traditionalism.
