Tradition is superior to liberalism, in fact we can use “Tradition” as a normative principle id est “Truth,” thus, all else besides Tradition means untruth. Following this begs the question of returning to Tradition; how is it to be done? If our age is one of lies, vice and deceit, then how do we escape this hell?
It is often noticed that the institutions which in ages past maintained Tradition and its realisation within the Occidental context have largely — if not entirely in some countries — collapsed. The Catholic Church with its universalism and outright Marxian Pope; the Anglican Church with its acceptance — nay, encouragement — of sodomy and other sins, the irreligiousity of the Czech Republic and Norway, et cetera. Europe’s Western religious traditions have withered and died and the Church to this day encourages this further with its advocacy of sin, humanism, universalism, and so on.
So we have then two choices:
- We rebuild the Church in some fashion; we encourage the spread of Christianity and European spirituality to anyone we can to have it re-enter the zeitgeist in some manner, nomatter how small. Over time, provided the supports are there in the form of books, videos and other media, people can more easily readopt the European religious tradition unobscured by the clouds of modern nihilism/atheism. Those who are already within the Church can work from the inside to purge it of heterodox elements and individuals (most of whom are elderly) and reintroduce conservative and traditional attitudes and politics into the remit of the Church. Over the coming future, as the demographic thus political environment in Europe extremifies, individuals within and without the Church can work to make it an effective and positive force in the culture.
- Alternatively, Europe adopts another tradition: Islam. Europeans convert to Islam, destroy their Bibles, destroy or repurpose Europe’s Churches and Cathedrals, and enter the next Age following Mohammed, leaving liberalism behind them as they march to Allah.
If my loaded language is not indicative enough, I believe the former option is a thousand times more preferable to the latter if not moreso. A Traditional Europe is preferable to a liberal one absolutely, but a brown Europe is not preferable to a white one. The Occidental people — Occidental by both blood and spirit, mind you — have their traditions and those must be rediscovered, not replaced.
Nor do I believe Europeans can even accept Islam on a mass-scale. Islam is not the exotercism of the Western; its spirit stands in direct contrast to what has been represented from the Ancient Greeks to the Middle Ages. The notion of individual, or person, is one such — and I would say the largest — difference between the West and Middle East; insomuch as our place in the universe. The Islamic conception is of man as slave, the Western conception is of man as assistant; our differing myths and rituals confirm this.
Islam is fit for the Middle-Eastern mind and soul, it is not fit for the Western. Hence our battles historically, hence the very low rate of Western conversion to Islam (and even in cases of conversion, it is not the post-Christian layman who is drawn to it at all).
It was claimed by some Neo-Reactionary some weeks ago that we would all be well-off converting to Islam to escape liberalism. When I commented on the article telling him that he should be shot like the traitor he is, and that the Europeans must — and will, I believe — rekindle their own way to God, not turn to some foreign tradition which shares no commonalities with our our former or “sleeping” tradition, he deleted my comment.
Lastnight I ended a series of podcasts held on my YouTube channel wherein myself and others discussed what is to be done regarding the loss of European’s religion. Technical difficulties and fewer participants than planned aside, we came to the conclusion that the Occidental tradition in all its various forms must regroup, essentially; and that elements old and new must enter an equilibrium to wrest differences East to West Church-wise, the pagan versus Christian elements and so forth (something Paul Andersen has been wrestling with with his writing here at West Coast Reactionaries to varying responses and degrees of depth).
The European must settle to rest his inner demons in order to gather his remaining strength with which to crush liberalism and survive Islam over the coming decades and centuries. If this question is not addressed by the mainstream Churches, public religious figures and others, Europe as we know it will cease to be after the next century; its traditions cut-short by the meddling and pussyfooting of powerful idiots.
