Although we have not forgotten our task to deal with certain specific issues, including the comparison of the ideas and perspectives of Charles Maurras and Julius Evola, we are finding value in translating some of Evola’s political writings.
Most people know Evola mainly from his post-war works such as Ride the Tiger and Men among the Ruins. Those are remarkable titles from a marketing perspective, but they are only part of the story. I have heard some “romantic” notions of riding the tiger, when they mean no more than “blowing in the wind”. Similarly, once the ruins have been seen once, there is hardly a point to continue to describe them. Now is the time to think about rebuilding.
We are also expecting the imminent arrival of some more books by Guido de Giorgio from Italy. We will translate whatever seems of great interest. Although they were hard to find and expensive to ship, we don’t want your money.
We have also received some curious documents, The Prototols of Satan and The Divine Plan for Order. Although we wouldn’t expect Satan to leave a detailed plan for his activities, its corresondence to current events in nevertheless remarkable. The Divine Plan shows significant relationships to Guenon’s ideas on spiritual authority and temporal power, as well as Dumezil’s three functions. We believe that the contrast between the two works will go far to unveil the inner workings of the occult war. We do this on Evola’s recommendation to prefer what is “complete, precise, and documented”.
Meanwhile, we will leave it up to the folk to select articles from La Vita Italiana to be translated.
