Something Darker to Consider
A long piece on the Nietzsche’s “God is Dead” and we can respond to secular Marxism.
This is longest piece ever written for Resavager. If you must, read it in parts. While technically a part of the Warrior Religion Project, I will keep this essay separate as covers a broader scope.
“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?” -Friedrich Nietzsche
This is the quote Nietzsche is known for. The first time I heard of the man in college, this is how he was introduced: as the philosopher who killed the gods. But Nietzsche didn’t kill the gods, Nietzsche just noticed they were already “dead.” He was diagnosing a problem in the society of his time, a society already afflicted. Latest BAP show(112) reminded me of Nietzsche’s observation and something much darker we must consider. The gods aren’t dead, but they exist only in memories and no longer represent the titanic force they did to our ancestors. The secular order of liberal democracy has its tentacles wrapped around the world like an octopus it’s prey.
The gods exist in scraps of text and our memories. Scientific exploration, in a way, destroyed the myth of the gods and their power. It hasn’t disproven the existence of the gods, but offered another explanation. The dark reality we may have to consider is there is no going back to a world with the gods. This secular vision is something we can’t scrape from the screen. I’ve encountered this problem in the warrior religion project I’ve been working on and this darker consideration has made me consider if the course should be changed.
Christians are coming out against leftism, but not with the fervor and fanaticism necessary to win. The left is far more fanatical in their beliefs. The other groups within the right are so small that they cannot make an impact large enough to matter. What then must the right do? Should some new religion or denomination be introduced? How will you recruit your natural allies, the Christians, to leave behind their faith? There are strong Christians are on our side, but their churches have been conquered by the leftist religion, almost wholesale. How would you even make a new religion stick?
There is a masculinity guru I’ve basically stopped talking about here and the reason is related to the subject at hand. He is trying to create a new religion, but in a way that’s not racist and not forcing men who read his work to convert. His religion aims to be universal in nature. In a way, it feels like he’s trying to cash out, though by his own admittance he’s always been a tourist. His chosen path has taken him back from the path he paved, his latest book having him take the stance of a harmless conservative lashing out against racism. Much of his work is on men is still valuable to those still plugged into the fake world. I offer him as an example of how a new religion will likely pan out.
He will not have an effect on the status quo. Sure, he may make out with some good money, but it will do nothing against globohomo. The message won’t inspire his disciples to conquer liberal democracy. It’s just a bunch of jerking off. His idea involves seeing the gods as universal in almost all cultures and using this as a way to recruit(sale to) men in those cultures while shaking off any kind of accusations of the dreaded white supremacy. If your religion can’t remove the veil of globohomo, it will accomplish nothing.
Much like Martin Heidegger believed that history and philosophy have been interpreted wrong for 2500 years, perhaps we too, have misinterpreted the evolution of religion.
Martin Heidegger believes the west has misinterpreted the Greeks philosophy for over 2500 years. That their interpretations are metaphysically wrong and you must stop listening to western philosophy and go back to Heraclitus. The same may be true with religion. Very little is known about the paganism of our ancestors before Christianity. Hell, most of what we know about Norse paganism was passed to us by Christians. If you take a look at Edward Watts book The Final Pagan Generation, you see a lot of parallels with society today with how fanatical leftists are trying to make Christian life hell. It’s not enough to have 90% of what they want, leftists must keep going until Christians submit to their will.
There is no putting the leftist back into Pandora’s box. He’s been unleashed and acting very much in the same manner as the Christians of The Final Pagan Generation. To those Christians it wasn’t enough to just be Christian, they had to be anti-pagan. The left today is very much the same. What this means is you can’t turn the clock back and return to a Christian society(which even Nietzsche believed dead in his time). Nor, can you go further back to the time of the pagans. There is no going back. Only forward.
The power of the gods is vanquished. You will no longer be able to divinely inspire men like our Christian and pagan forefathers with the power of god. The next step in the evolution of religion is divinely inspiring people with the liberal democracy/Marxism controlling the world today. You’re only allowed to inspire your people to chimp out when a white cop kneels on neck of black Saint. You can argue that leftism is powered by demons and leftists ARE demonic, but they hold a secular view of the world. They aren’t frightened by Satanism, hell, they think it’s as ridiculous as Christianity. Now die hard Christians will still say it’s Satanism and demons, which is fine, but men must realize it’s also NATURE.
Nature is savage and eternal. Bad men can inspire the masses to do terrible things. Religion is evolving overtime. Each step along the way it becomes something else, related, but foreign to what came before it. We don’t know what came before paganism, but the paganism of the Ancient Romans was very tolerant. They didn’t care what gods you worshipped, they only asked you respect the Roman holidays. In other scenarios they equated gods they didn’t understand to the gods of their own pantheon. Tyr the Norse god was the equivalent of Mars, for example.
