Sometimes I think the Lord’s Prayer was fulfilled, provisionally and up-to-a-point, with the Third Reich which, at least from 1933-39, provided the bulk of the German people with a level of cohesion and prosperity they had never known before.
The Third Reich met its end squeezed between the twin secular powers of America and Russia, neither of which could be described as particularly Christian nations but, rather, as states beholden to the star and dominated, in one way or another, by Jews. National Socialism was squeezed to death between the capitalist Right and the communist Left, America and Russia, and the nearest thing to ‘Kingdom Come’ that the world had yet seen was snuffed out by powers that, whether or not consciously atheist, have to be identified more with stars than with crosses.
The National Socialist Third Reich was a shot at the bullseye of ‘Kingdom Come’ that failed. The next shot at the bullseye, which I hope will be Social Theocratic, must succeed in hitting it, because only on that basis can the world be overcome and that which preys upon it and profits from it damned to perdition. Then the race beyond man will be able to come properly into being.
I can conceive of a new dark age in terms of the reculer pour mieux sauter, the stepping back in order to leap further forwards parallel of underground bunker-like defences to space-centre apotheosis which, being germane to the inner light of psychic enlightenment, will be antithetical to the outer light of somatic licence which rules the contemporary globalized world as though from Hollywood heights. This new dark age will be the necessary prelude to the full ‘coming out’ of Truth following its victory over Beauty.
A world ruled by Beauty, as the contemporary American-dominated one tends to be, gives small comfort to the elderly and all who, for whatever reason, cannot be identified with the effective aristocracy of the ‘beautiful people’ who dominate it, not least from the cinema screen. What now is taken for granted as a secular right and even norm to be aspired towards will, in the more enlightened future, be castigated as superheathen. For the end of history, the triumph of geist, as of ‘Second Religiousness’, has to be Superchristian or nothing. Such an end I identify with Social Theocracy, the political front of Social Transcendentalism, pretty much as the godly evidence of Heaven, the resolution, in metaphysical being, of all becoming.
