The ex-wife of a respected free market economist once remarked to me, “Yale used to say that conservatives were just old-fashioned liberals.” People who think this will be flabbergasted by Julius Evola. Like Georges Sorel, Oswald Spengler, Whittaker Chambers, and Régis Debray, Evola insisted that liberals and communists share basic principles. For Evola, politics is an expression of principles, and he never tires of repeating his own.
• The transcendent is real.
• Man’s knowledge of his relationship to transcendence has been handed down from the beginning of human culture. This is Tradition with a capital T.
