This idea highlights a fundamental difference between #CRx and modernist revolutionary ideologies like Liberalism, Marxism, #AltRight, and #NRx. We understand that the crisis is an inversion of castes, the absence of a spiritual elite.
For this reason, the road back isn’t a demotic political scheme, because the crisis is metaphysical, not political. Expanding the Overton window is irrelevant, because the masses are irrelevant. The window needs to be slammed shut, not shifted.
What we need is conscious men capable and worthy of leadership:
Nepsis, not mere cleverness.
Chivalry, not game.
Christ, not Gnon/Pepe.
Our NRx friends often repeat “politics is downstream from culture.” This is true, but very incomplete. Culture is downstream from religion, which is downstream from metaphysics, which is downstream from initiation. And the West has forgotten what initiation is.
Here’s a pro tip: initiation has nothing to do with occult foolishness, and everything to do with cultivating attention and virtue. (“Wherefore he saith, Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine upon thee.” – Ephesians 5:14)
“Become worthy”, if it is more than a slogan or meme, requires real work, an Aim, and a Teacher.
