Translating Evola Pt. 2 – Disenfranchisement Begins

I begun to search out for dissident ideas, the beliefs I previously held where starting to crumble apart. Even the Marxist philosopher Slavoj Zizek was taking a hammer to some of my Left-wing position (hence why he has been cast out of that particular in-group. He has possibly the best understanding of Karl Marx’s work and he has been rejected by the Left. Personally, having read a decent bit of Karl Marx’s writing, and encountering a lot of people who claim to be Marxists at university, I question how much these people actually know about Karl Marx’s work. How many have actually read The German Ideology, or his writing on censorship?

Around half way into this program to get into a degree I encountered Friedrich Nietzsche, a philologist turned philosopher with his own air of controversy around him. The way he wrote, his use of language, how he could put so much into just a few sentences. I instantly felt a massive connection to him – and still do, obviously – and I wanted to find other philosophers who had that same energy and ferocious dedication to questioning and chipping away at all our preconceived ideas. I felt angry that Western society has become so weak, so willing to take as gospel the words of other individuals purely because of their title.

Voices

People listen to the scripted words of liars, they are told to ignore what they see with their eyes – what you see does not align with what you hear? This matters not, I provide to you science, I provide to you empiricism! Crime? What crime? Gangs? What gangs? Figments of your imagination!

My title is doctor, my home is guarded by large walls, it resides amongst others of equal financial status, it lies far away from the working class. Ignore all this peasant, heed my words – there is no instability, there is no conflicts in our society caused by the incompatibility of ideas! My ideology is sound, it does not matter than what you and I experience every day are two different existences, it is irrelevant that I do not experience what workers experience – I am a Marxist, I represent you and your interests! I fight for the proletariat… From a safe distance… While insulting and degrading those without degrees…

I see no conflict from my ivory tower, I fear not the words of a ‘holy book’ which espouses views contrary to the ‘rights’ I fight for. I worry not about implementation of laws dictated by that book once its adherents reach a certain percentage of the population, I believe our so called ‘democracy’ will prevent this occurrence – I mean, it is not like laws can be changed to accommodate the implementation of those laws…

I fight for social justice: feminism and gay rights, transvesticism and all the rest. Why should I be concerned about a religious ideology that punishes people for these things? It is not like these same people would be vilely tortured, stoned or thrown from roofs when a certain religion gains power, that would never happen. It isn’t like Christopher Hitchens warned us about any of these things. That Nazi, fascist, Islamophobe, evil Hitler Hitchens and his words and quotes directly from these texts, his depth and understanding of the innerworkings of this ideology which may appear to be more of a military-esque doctrine of conquering and war espoused by a ‘prophet’ military leader with a nine-year-old bride.

It will all be okay, our liberal democracy will keep all these people safe, no contradictions here. Islam is a feminist religion, no females in the Middle East are bravely removing their Casper the ghost costumes in protest, no gay children are being tortured and executed, no little girls are being disgustingly mutilated in a way very similar to another desert-originated ideology…

But I digress…

Modern Westerners are so sheltered from opposing opinions. We have been conditioned with fear of views that we are told are inherently evil. Academia labels anyone who deviates from the prescribed, accepted positions as a ‘fascist’. But what is a fascist? I have studied political science and so far, a fascist in our modern age can mean anything. I wonder why that could be? What possible reason would there be for making ‘fascism’ such an ill-defined idea?
