The Julius Evola-Steve Bannon Conspiracy

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is the funniest anti-Trump conspiracy yet:

“ROME — Those trying to divine the roots of Stephen K. Bannon’s dark and at times apocalyptic worldview have repeatedly combed over a speech that Mr. Bannon, President Trump’s ideological guru, made in 2014 to a Vatican conference, where he expounded on Islam, populism and capitalism.

But for all the examination of those remarks, a passing reference by Mr. Bannon to an esoteric Italian philosopher has gone little noticed, except perhaps by scholars and followers of the deeply taboo, Nazi-affiliated thinker, Julius Evola.

“The fact that Bannon even knows Evola is significant,” said Mark Sedgwick, a leading scholar of Traditionalists at Aarhus University in Denmark. …”

I’m familiar with Julius Evola.

If you spend any significant amount of time browsing Alt-Right websites, you are likely to come across Baron Evola. That doesn’t mean anything by itself though. I’m familiar with Abraham Lincoln. It doesn’t make me a Unionist. I’m familiar with Leon Trotsky. It doesn’t make me a communist. I’ve read everyone from Plato to John Locke to Adolf Hitler to Michel Foucault.

My friend Robert Campbell has written about Julius Evola here in the past. He’s much more familiar with Evola than I am. I wish he would start writing again. It would be fair to say that Robert is an Evolian and Radical Traditionalist whereas my thinking is more drawn from the Greeks and Romans and the antebellum Southern tradition.

Note: Counter-Currents has written volumes about Julius Evola. Counter-Currents and Arktos sell his books. If you are interested in Baron Evola’s work, that’s the place to go.
