Evola got close to the truth about the modern world but he was unable to see it

He should have noticed the link between Rosicrucianism, Spinoza, Reformation and Kabbalah

Too bad you can't get close to women lmao
Absolutely necessary for anyone even slightly Evolian

>I'm not so sure how Kabbalah ties into this; other than the core common concepts it has with certain gnostic strands of thought
Evola wrote an article I believe saying luther once said "Sola scriptura is the kabbalah of christianity"
It's a shame he never explained it better. It looks like he was saying Luther was aware about the gnostic (negative) part of christianity in the sense of heresy

So what are /his/'s takes on Zoroastrianism?
46 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Babylonians were polytheists, same goes for Zoroastrians. If Jews were influenced by Zoroastrians they would worship fire and smear themselves with bull piss.

Persians always borrowed their technology from foreign races such as Chinese, Semites, and Hindus. Their religion isn't an exception.
Tell me about the Magi, all of it, the more obscure the better. If it includes analysis of the prieat class in Indo Aryans, BMAC too even better.
Yes. But more precisely the world did.

Why didn't Mesoamerican kingdoms use guns, large dogs (were large dogs used in war against the Spanish?) and horses? they sustained contact with Europeans from 1519 until 1697. Plains indians and Patagonians got horses and sometimes guns in a similar length of time.

Additional question: did any enemies of European colonizers such as the Chichimecs, Taino, Northeastern (US) Indians, or Incans ever adapt European technology such as listed above while still independent or was this reserved for later centuries?
They converted to Christian so there was no point on keeping the fight
I specifically highlighted an uncoverted pagan kingdom that lasted until 1697
It is really weird to me that none of the indan revolts in civilized places have ever truely succeeded.

Why is Incest SO PREDOMINANT in many major civilization's myths?

Seriously look at this shit.
>Creator gods of China are Nuwa and Fuxi = Brother and Sister.
>In Japan, Izanami and Izanagi, again a bro-sister couple- fucks and creates the Shinto Pantheon.
>Same deal with Ancient Egypt: a lot of their pantheon is married/fucking each other.
>I do not have to mention how plenty of the Greek Pantheon are related and are married/fucking each other.
>Even mesoamerica isn't safe: Quetzalcoatl was a formerly mortal prince who ascended to godhood after feeling ashamed of having fucked his sister after getting drunk and committing suicide, thus ascending to heavens.

Why do our ancestors project incestuous relations upon the being they worshipped.
What does this say about the human fucking condition?
Gods aren't mortals. Greeks were worshiping personified actual things.
From Wikipedia

>The term "taboo" comes from the Tongan tapu or Fijian tabu ("prohibited", "disallowed", "forbidden"),related among others to the Maori tapu and Hawaiian kapu. Its English use dates to 1777 when the British explorer James Cook visited Tonga, and referred to the Tongans' use of the term "taboo" for "any thing is forbidden to be eaten, or made use of".

>The term was translated to him as "consecrated, inviolable, forbidden, unclean or cursed."Tabu itself has been derived from alleged Tongan morphemes ta ("mark") and bu ("especially"), but this may be a folk etymology (Tongan does not actually have a phoneme ), and tapu is usually treated as a unitary, non-compound word inherited from Proto-Polynesian *tapu, in turn inherited from Proto-Oceanic *tabu, with the reconstructed meaning "sacred, forbidden."In its current use on Tonga, the word tapu means "sacred" or "holy", often in the sense of being restricted or protected by custom or law. On the main island, the word is often appended to the end of "Tonga" as Tongatapu, here meaning "Sacred South" rather than "Forbidden

Compare also Arabic haram

>”Haram” is an Arabic term meaning forbidden. This may refer to: either something sacred to which access is forbidden to the people who are not in a state of purity or who are not initiated into the sacred knowledge; or to an evil thus "sinful action that is forbidden to be done".

We see that both of these terms have the connotations of “forbidden” as well as “sacred”. I would argue it signifies something “set apart”, “forbidden to engage in for the average human being”, only permitted for divine entities and special higher types (e. g. royalty) of human beings.

I would therefore argue, that the common depiction of divine incest in mythology is not meant as a reflection of reality or an encouragement, but -on the contrary- to cement the fundamental difference in status between the mere profane humans for whom it was strictly forbidden to engage in such behaviors and sacred higher beings (gods , maybe high priests and divine monarchs (pharaohs) etc...)

The only major exception that proofs this rule -that I’m aware of- might be Zoroastrianism, where incest among closely related family members might have been more widespread. But I am not sure.

Why were medieval kingdoms unable to mobilize their populations to ensure victory in wars?

>You would need to provide them with arms and armour on top of sold
>You would need to feed them
>You would need organization for efficient mobilization
>You would need to motivate them enough so they wont just run back home in the night
Hilarious how setting up a competent army to killing condition is both one of the most complex, difficult undertakings and the most useless and nonsensical.
Because the feudal state is not designed to function)
*also this can be called a "state" only with a big stretch
Well, we have to disnguish between mobilization or defensive and offensive purposes. When it came to defense (Landfolge), it was the same in the HRE. It wasn't so hard to draft peasants for that because their own homes were potentially at stake. It's different for offensive actions (Heeresfolge) though; these were quite limited in scope.

Peasants sucked in the Middle Ages. Now burghers from tight-knit communities such as Flemish counties and today's Switzerland, that's the shit, due to their improved morale.

This is the general thread for all history and humanities related to Slavs - culture, linguistics, history - for local Slavs to congregate, and for anyone with questions to receive somewhat adequate answers.

We hope for a cooperative and fruitful communication that would lead to increase of awareness on all things Slavic, including the more obscure or specalist ones, such as last thread's >>7909363 gems, like:
- The Pannonian Urheimat theory of Trubachev
- Historically verified assimilation of Germans into Slovenes
- Evidence of Wendish Slavic settlements and cultural-mercantile exchange in Scandinavia and Danish islands in particular

1. Hurrr Germano-Scythian overdorks Durrr
2. Durrr Slavs on Rhein Hurrrrr
3. Hurrperborea Durrrr

because any attempt on discussing actual history (as in not pre-history) of slavs will result in a chimpout and all parties will consider themselves offended.

How the fuck did people sell shit before commercial branding? Seems to me in a time before brands, it would be very hard for a Merchant/Artificer to distinguish himself among commercial competitors, or suffer the risk of a contemporary copyright infringement upon his products.

What did the rejection of Neo-Kantian philosophy mean for Germany?
5 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
>economically marxist-capitalist.
Because the German military and judicial establishment were vehemently opposed to it. Despite versailles limiting the size of the army it was still very influential and borderline independent. Right-wing dissidents attempting coups were generally given a slap on the wrist whilst leftist dissidents were treated as harshly as possible. The most obvious example being Hitler serving only 9 months in prison for attempting to overthrow the Republic. The closest the communists ever came was immediately post-war which was crushed by the friekorps.
Communists used to trust Social Democrats.

Repulsive Judeo-Bolshevik shill
Because of government structure. If a left leaning individual or a group sneezes or looked the wrong way they were arrested and sentenced to the harshest possible sentence. Hell, one man that published documents on WW1 was arrested for treason because he was proving that Germany wasn't the innocent victim that was winning the war. Meanwhile, Hitler tried to overthrow the government and he barely got a slap on the wrist.
