I know it grows wildly by the DMZ but seems exceptional to kick him for smoking the 'I assume' ditch weed. PR Related? idk.
Did you write this?This concerns the relationship between Western civilization and other civilizations, especially those of the East. Among those who have recognized the crisis of the modern world, and who have also abandoned the idea that modern civilization is the civilization par excellence, the zenith and measure of all others, some have turned their eyes to the East. They see there, to a certain degree, a traditional and spiritual orientation to life that has long ceased to exist ίη the West as the basis for the effective organization of the various realms of existence. They have even wondered whether the East might furnish useful reference points for a revival and reintegration of the West. It is important to have a clear view of the domain to which such a proposition might apply. If it is simply a matter of doctrines and "intellectual" contacts, the attempt is legitimate. But one should take note that valid examples and points of reference are to be found, at least partially, ίη our own traditional past, without having to turn to non-European civilizations. Not much is to be gained by any of this, however. It would be a matter of conversations at a high level between isolated individuals, cultivators of metaphysical systems. If one is more concerned with real influences that have a powerful effect οη existence, one should have ηο illusions about them.
The East itself is now following ίη our footsteps, ever more subject to the ideas and influences that have led us to the point at which we find ourselves, "modernizing" itself and adopting our own secular and materialistic forms of life. What is still left of Eastern traditions and character is steadily losing ground and becoming marginalized. The liquidation of "colonialism" and the material independence that Eastern peoples are acquiring vis-a-vis Europe are closely accompanied by an ever more blatant subjection to the ideas, the mores, and the "advanced" and "progressive" mentality οί the West. Based οη the doctrine οί cycles, it may be that anything οί value from the point οί view οί a man οί Tradition, either ίη the East or elsewhere, concerns a residual legacy that survives, υρ to a point, not because it belongs to areas that are truly untouched by the principle οί decline, but merely because this process is still ίη an early phase there. For such civilizations it is οηlΥ a matter οί time before they find themselves at the same point as ourselves, knowing the same problems and the same phenomena οί dissolution under the sign οί "progress" and modernity. The tempo may even be much faster ίη the East. We have the example οί China, which in-two decades has traveled the whole way from an imperial, traditional civilization to a materialistic and atheist communist regime-a journey that the Europeans took centuries to accomplish. Outside the circles οί scholars and specialists ίη metaphysical disciplines, the "myth οί the East" is therefore a fallacy. "The desert encroaches": there is ηο other civilization that can serve as support; we have to face our problems alone. The οηlΥ prospect offered us as a counterpart οί the cyclicallaws, and that οηlΥ hypothetical, is that the process οί decline οί the Dark Age has first reached its terminal phases with us ίη the West. Therefore it is not impossible that we would also be the first to pass the zero point, ίη a period ίη which the other civilizations, entering later into the same current, would find themselves more or less ίη our current state, having abandoned-"superseded"-what they still offer today ίη the way οί superior values and traditional forms οί existence that attract us. The consequence would be a reversal οί roles. The West, having reached the point beyond the negative limit, would be qualified to assume a new function οί guidance or command, very different from the material, techno-industrial leadership that it wielded ίη the past, which, once it collapsed, resulted οηlΥ ίη a general leveling.
