Italy: Julius Evola

Adriana Pena forwarded  a review of Julius Evola's "masterpiece": Revolt against the Modern World, described by the reviewer as a readable version of Rosenberg's Myth of the 20th Century. Alain de Benoist comments: The review is really stupid. While Revolt against the Modern World deserves certainly many critics, to describe Julius Evola as a "mythographer for the fascist government?" and his book as a "readable version of Alfred Rosenberg’s Myth of the 20th Century", is pure nonsense. Evola was even not a member of the fascist party, and the fascist government officially banned his journal, La Torre. Evola has only contempt for Rosenberg’s views. Actually he published many articles against Rosenberg. Moreover, he never spoke about the "origin of the Aryan race in Atlantis". To say that such a theme was "important" to him is a joke. Evola was also a strong opponent to theosophy. Linking Evola and theosophy is as ntelligent as linking Karl Marx and flying saucers.
