The Decline of the West

A good and thorough introduction to Spengler. What is interesting about Spengler is his philosophy gives an understanding of history that isn’t economical. Indeed, what he reminds me of is Nietzsche and the Vedas, for example, the recurring universe and the idea of ages, from a golden age leading to a dark age (Kali Yuga). I think National Socialism was an attempt to deal with this problem of decline, by basing its principle on nature. Anyway, that’s my two cents worth, as it were. The Reich Was Right!!!
