Pat Buchanan brought out some rare insight today:
â€œThe West is disintegrating. Its faith is dead. When the cult dies, the culture dies and when the culture dies the civilization dies, and when the civilization dies the people die, and thatâ€™s whatâ€™s happening to western civilization.â€
His point is one that Evola, Nietzsche and Houellebecq made: ending the decline comes from within. We need to want to aspire again and to do the excellent, not merely the friendly and egalitarian.
This is the step before the restoration of faith, which means not just religious faith, but faith in our people and in our natural leaders.
