    Modern Misunderstandings of Imperialism

    Only in the modern age has the term Imperialism come to be associated with something that is evil, corrupt, oppressive, and immoral. It is a word used to slander your opponent like “nazi” or “Hitler” and thrown around without any thought. Even more ridiculous, the people who usually label others with the imperialist “smear” typically have no idea what the word means. This does not matter to them since they regard words as tools of propaganda.

    Let us provide an example. Americans are familiar with their nation’s founders whose opposition against a supposed imperial power was merely a useful propaganda which helped them win over more support for their revolution. And like all things pertaining to war propaganda it was entirely meaningless. This is shown in two points: (a) the king was a mere ornament like the queen is today, and therefore, Great Britain was not a monarchy by design (b) even before democracy the monarchs of Europe had long degenerated and were no longer regarded as kings by traditional standards. That is to say, in order for a king to be recognized as such he first had to be authentically initiated into the divine (i.e., the alchemical Great Work) and therefore receive his authority to rule from the divine. This was not the case with many of the latter kings: they were not divine, received no divine right, and were as mere peasants without the proper initiation.

    It is not surprising then that their reign resulted in many wrongdoings, for they were false kings that never should have been allowed to rule. Traditionally, those who in the hopes of being king attempted to “slay the dragon” and failed were met with the penalty of death, even by suicide at the utter humiliation that such a failure caused. But our point stands: one cannot define something by its complete degeneration.

    Now those who historically opposed a monarchy were also more or less atheists. This was the case with many of America’s founding fathers who rejected the divinity of Christ or even the concept of divinity itself and rather treated religion as a set of moral rules that were useful in keeping the public in line. Indeed, the separation of church and state shows their contempt for religion if nothing else.

    Also what we see in those who commonly reject an imperial power is not that they are against authority as they like to claim but that they oppose a specific authority. People rebel against authority in order to overthrow one regime and replace it with their own. No sooner is an authority under their favor will they change their tune and demand that we all follow its rules to the letter. And so the intent is first of all subversive until a collapse is produced whereby they may assume control and rule with an iron fist.

    If we look at the transition from monarchy to democracy and then to socialism this is exactly what has happened. First the claim was that the kings held all the wealth and now it is the businessmen who hold it all. This produced a major problem, as we see, the primary duty of government shifted from the protection of the race, religion, and caste, to the protection of the economy, stock market, and free flow of capital.

    So in truth, one cannot say that imperialism has anything to do with the oppression of a people. Well after all monarchies dissolved, the democratic rule by global businessmen have caused much more destruction than the monarchs of old could have even thought possible. They have proved, moreover, that the unbridled freedom of the lower castes was one of the worst ideas ever in the history of mankind. Allowing the common man to have his “freedom” only resulted in his total enslavement to the body.

    Finally, let us look at the situation with colonization. European empires once helped to create a stability throughout the world, have created civilizations from the primitive conditions which existed beforehand. Soon after the West withdrew, a never-ending chaos ensued. Ethnic tribes began killing each other, wars arose, people no longer had the ability to feed themselves, diseases ran rampant, huge migrations (to this day) threaten nations, and then there began a massive buildup of arsenals which eventually included nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons.

    These problems simply show the lack of foresight by the bourgeoisie and proletariats who demanded that Europe give up its authority and that a so-called “human rights” policy be enacted. Now we are in the position that these same two castes of people want to go back only this time to “save the world.” Worse, in this destabilized world we are forced to bear witness to the neocon war for the securing of the “holy land,” what is essentially a total perversion, degeneration, and profanation of the Christian religion. (Religion has long been reduced to mere humanism without any shred of actual spiritual or divine character to it.)

    Anyone who understands the “four ages” of tradition may also understand that it is democracy and the “will of the people” which is the ultimate evil and not the divine monarchy. The misuse of the word “imperialism” therefore only furthers the propaganda of the enemy, for it is not under a democracy that we may regain the dignity of our people.

    Enough of this dishrag conservatism that is being spread around by the Buchananites who completely lack any backbone to support an ethnic nationalism and who give compromises, one after the other, to the opposition. Enough of this “constitutionalism,” of the rejection of the supernature, of the worship of the economy. Enough of the counter-initiation and the counter-religious forces who have profaned our Eternal Truth and subverted our tradition with inferior “philosophies” and “exoteric theologizing.”

    Re: Modern Misunderstandings of Imperialism

    One thing I neglected to mention, perhaps because it is so obvious, is that those who typically associate imperialism with "white supremacy" and who voice their opposition to both, have no problem with supporting a supremacy of blacks, Mexicans, Jews, Asians, or Arabs, so long as it doesn't involve Europeans. Now we are at the point where nonwhites have even more rights than us in our own homelands. Far from anything "imperial," Western "leaders" are totally powerless and have no authority over their own countries. Their policies are dictated by the people, by foreigners, or by special interest groups in every instance. They don't even deserve the title of ruler, but rather are slaves, traitors, degenerates, and self-hating clowns. Their actions are treasonous and destructive not imperial.

    Re: Modern Misunderstandings of Imperialism

    There is a relatively old question that is asked in all circles of society, and that is this: Who should rule?

    Those who believe that man is inherently bad and that power corrupts all persons equally believe that no one should possess absolute power and that those who do rule should be given the least amount of power possible. Such a philosophy however is anti-traditional. For we know this to be not true.

    Tradition holds that only those who have first conquered their own selves through the sacerdotal or royal art have attained the authority to rule a people. An auxiliary ruling power has also been the warrior nobility. In this case, they have gained their right to rule by the conquering nature of heroism. It is one’s bodily instinct and will-to-live which keeps the average man from going into danger and performing daring feats such as climbing a mountain or meeting an invading army in battle. And in this sense, the warrior has overcome his own nature and thus shows a great power of command over his body.

    We cannot therefore say that those who have won the greater spiritual battle are equal to those who have not. Those who know the hermetic “royal art” moreover know the true nature of royalty. The title of king is first and foremost a spiritual one, and is earned only on the spiritual plane. As I like to emphasize, one who has not attained the high initiation is not a true king. There is a whole realm of energies unknown to the average person that is controlled by the spiritual master. It would therefore, by the very least, not be wise or even fair not to recognize a given hierarchy. To do so would be to deny the expert and be in favor rather of the amateur. In a similar manner, we cannot give the same credit to the profane “philosopher” or to the scholar or scientist who has mastered only the mental plane and not the spiritual plane.

    All of this must be deeply considered when concerning the imperial, which is our most sacred tradition.

    Man is something to be conquered; first at each individual level regarding the self, and second, in the greater perspective which seeks to unite an entire people and lift them up into something higher than their mere selves, greater than their basic animal instincts.
