Julius Evola on America

Julius Evola on America

“America too, in the essential way it views life and the world, has created a “civilization” that represents the exact contradiction of the ancient European Tradition. It has introduced the religion of praxis and productivity; it has put the quest for profit, great industrial production, and mechanical, visible and qualitative achievements over and above any other interest. It has generated a soulless greatness of a purely technological and collective nature, lacking any background of transcendence, inner light and true spirituality. America has also put the view in which man is considered in terms of quality and personality within an organic system in opposition with that view in which man becomes a mere instrument of production and material productivity within a conformist and social conglomerate. ”
– Julius Evola, Revolt Against the Modern World
