You might be familiar with a sort of “dialogue” that Jünger and Heidegger had on the subject of nihilism. The former presented an essay to the latter titled “Across the Line”, and the latter responded with an essay titled “On ‘the Line'” (roughly translated). I might get into this another day. What’s interesting to me is that Jünger published a novel the year before he presented that essay to Heidegger. Heliopolis is not in English (it IS in French Italian Spanish though if you can read any of those).

I’m just going to do a bird’s-eye-view and omit spoilers

De Geer describes the regent’s side as “conservative” and that of the bailiff as “nihilistic”.

Okay, I’ll admit it- Jünger began writing this in January 1947. So this is similar to Pound’s writings from the nuthouse. I seek the originary reaction to the “NWO” from people who didn’t jive with it.

This is how he describes the bailiff’s followers

Only seldom did a higher, reflective consciousness radiate from them

If you think this is intriguing, wait til I decode Eumeswil. Lots of work to be done on this Kraut.

LOL how people coped. Evola was “studying” Tantra at the time Jünger was writing this. I think Pound got it worst out of all the main Minds.

“The Enemy cannot have Mind, so I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Tell yourself that.

Doing a zoom-out, what motivates me to write about this is the observation that force and violence precede philosophy. And if that is true then I don’t think it IS philosophy. You can use violence against me all you want, that’s an expected reaction to someone who doesn’t play the “might makes right” game. To put it bluntly, the indifference toward the supposed constrainment of philosophy by violence is itself a reinitiation of war. If you can understand that you’ll understand a lot of things here.

We think it’s possible to extract out of the world an elite formed by pain…

The bailiff represents ZOG/Americanism, the proconsul represents people like Schmitt and Heidegger

we aim to create a new elite… the proconsul is our model, as the bearer of excellent, just virtues called to rule.

Heliopolis is a utopia. The regent set up a worldwide monarchy before exiting to outer-space. There are stirrings of a civil war between the bailiff and the proconsul throughout the novel.

Some of us can relate to Jünger or Pound’s Washington Cantos ever since Biden was inaugurated.

We know that the proconsul wants to shoulder the task. With this in mind he seeks to attract the best forces to himself, the future senate. It should be borne in mind that the original nobility… no longer exists. The selection is therefore dependent on performance, that is, on a group of people who distinguish themselves through deeds, knowledge or ability.

How about being extremely, inhumanly strict?

a method has been found to prevent the entry of demagogues

It’s tough for me to think of many people who wouldn’t be classified as a type of demagogue or follower of demagogues.

Can’t do the “freemason secret handshake”? Then you should mind your own business and keep your political opinion to yourself. And next to no one knows how to do that handshake. Whoa, why do you have a damp rag attached to your wrist? Is that like your idea of a prosthetic hand?

Anyway this is on the main character of the novel (De Geer), which is relatable

He also likes to turn to beautiful things, restored books or various objects related to artist friends. These things are often called “exquisite”.

I still keep laughing remembering “the Evola option” during this time.

Curse those nazi bigots! Meanwhile, another main character in Heliopolis – Budur

she demonstrates the intellectual independence that enables her to enter the Regent’s service.

Sorry to inform the kikes that some percent of eurobloods aren’t happy with postwar ideology, and thus take an interest in old Jünger’s perspective on things.

“Just give us some time, it will be 100%, everyone will be so dull and numb they’ll THINK they’re happy!”

There’s drug-usage in this novel by the way. I know no one can relate to that. I think I read somewhere that Jünger drank a bottle of wine a day, even at the age of 102. (You can fight in the trenches of WWI then judge him.) I’m not sure if he ever stopped taking entheogens.

To be fair, you might be able to see here Jünger’s stereotypical “German murderer” physiognomy (which I personally happen to find “cool”)

Remember Jünger was an anti-herd type of person. The proconsul likely doesn’t represent Hitler&co. Jünger, Schmitt, and Heidegger felt alienated from mass-politics. Sort of reminds me of my own relation to the populist-right over the years. Yeah you retards have the right idea I guess. And of course Evola was similar, writing Fascism Viewed from the Right in 1963.

This is interesting

And again, the Regent is all the way up in space.

You do have to wonder if they’ve selectively translated Jünger over the years. I think of some phenomenal nonfiction of his, The Forest Passage, which was only translated less than a decade ago. Poor baby has a grudge? “Anyone involved in the attempt to oust the international banking cartel needs to be erased from history!” Wow you sound like “the good guy”.

Heliopolis is at least easier to read than Pound’s Washington Cantos. Christ, those are perplexing.

It’s somewhat similar to Hesse’s Magister Ludi which was published a handful of years prior

Heliopolis explores rival forms of government in the fictional futuristic city of Heliopolis, somewhere in the Mediterranean: one populist “with the instincts of the dull masses,” and the other favoring an enlightened absolutism carried by an elite.

Heliopolis and Magister Ludi are, it probably goes without saying, Nietzschean. Definitely politically incorrect. See Beyond Good and Evil, aphorism 257. People write novels based on that one aphorism alone?? Reminds me of how so much of Strauss’s corpus is based on Beyond Good and Evil, aphorism 30. Yeah, mustache man knew a thing or two about the will to power.

The French Nietzscheans are in this picture to an embarrassing degree, but I digress. See here if you want to know a secret about this–hat-tip to Muhsin Mahdi. TLDR; Nietzsche’s rhetoric can be somewhat manipulative, and often appeals to ksatriyas under the guise of appealing to brahmins. Neech has created many goy versions of golems. Escaping his dogmatisms is probably not for this century.

I mean, reflect on the details of Heliopolis above… seems like a noble enterprise. To condense the formula- to solve the problem of nihilism we need a new elite. Maybe this novel casts light on his better-known “dialogue” with Heidegger.

Interesting take on the Krautnet

the parallels between Jünger and De Geer are so clear that there is no right mood for a novel. If you know Jünger’s vita, you are sometimes uncomfortable with the clear personification.

Spoiler-alert

Lucius De Geer, originally an ardent supporter of the proconsul and his staff, moves further and further away from this side and his actions as the book progresses. Ultimately, De Geer’s moral integrity forces him to break with the proconsul, since the latter, at least in practice, is increasingly approaching the bailiff

This is how I feel with Americans and the egregore-partzufim.
