Tolkien vs. Evola

Hunter Morris

Two traditionalists of very different backgrounds, did they ever take note of each others' works?
They both seemed to find the postwar state of the west distasteful (Evola moreso) from a spiritual perspective, but they'd certainly have come to different conclusions on what to do about it.
The Indian-subcontinental religions were a big influence on Evola (largely because they meshed well with his aristocratic outlook), whereas Tolkien was a Roman Catholic who seemed to try his best to have faith in the virtue of the little people.
Anyone up for a general discussion thread + quotes + reading recommendations on this topic?

They may have deliberately chosen to keep clear of each other. Much like Rockwell did in regards to German nationalist parties at the time to help protect them from the "nazi" slogan, as he was well aware of how they'd be arrested for associating with a Nazi party. That's my theory at least. I would also think that spiritually they were somewhat similar, as Tolkien had rebuked Catholic officials when they tried to push him on the topic of reincarnation as it Tolkien view it would not be out of the realm of god for such a thing. If they did in fact decide to have a conversation I think it would have been a fascinating one.

George Lincoln Rockwell was discharged in 1959 and then formed the American Nazi Party
dude read more before you say stupid shit. Being a member of the Nazi party isn't a crime, unlike being a member of the Communist party

Evola was heavily involved in the mythos of Indo-European people which would naturally lead him there. Tolkien borrowed heavily from European mythos particularly Germanic and as far as Tibet to form his fictional languages. Read his letters and notes.

Tolkien's works are chock full of Masonic references and Evola is himself a Jewish Freemason. Try again kike shill.

Go back to 4chan
Evola wrote extensively about Freemasonry and it's connections to jewry. He was able to read their caputured documents while working for Himmler in the SD division.

There are a lot of shills out today, this is a quality thread OP. Have a bump.

Did you mean Tolkien's or Evola's?
Thanks fren
Which masonic references were in Tolkien? I'm not a masonry-buff. And was it the original text that had those references or are you referring to the Peter Jackson adaptation (like where Sauron's the 'all-seeing eye' on Barad-Dur)

Well, there is some definite truth to the idea that Evola had a nasty habit of getting lost in long paragraphs.

I'm not a masonry-buff. And was it the original text that had those references or are you referring to the Peter Jackson adaptation (like where Sauron's the 'all-seeing eye' on Barad-Dur)
Which in this case wouldn't even be bad since the ASE was obviously pure evil. Sticks to Tolkien very binary approach to good and evil, very avestic.

Evola wrote:
"It is thanks to my encounter with Reghini (and Guenon, who Reghini first mentioned to me) that I decidedly broke with what “occultist” or Theosophical tendencies I still possessed, and came to acknowledge the complete separateness and transcendence of initiatory wisdom with respect to all profane culture, and particularly modern."
Reghini was a fellow Traditionalist philosopher of the time that was pro-Freemasonry and other occult shit.

Everyone should listen to Johnathan Bowden. He has a ton of great videos. This is one of the most important videos he ever did.
