Unlike the Jewish Tradition,

Political Freemasonry & Secular Judaism

are Merely Tools Subordinate to Vaster Influences

(from "The Path of Cinnabar")




[...] The influence of Judaism on modern culture and society, by means of both international capitalism and by revolutionary, corrosive political agitation, can hardly be denied. In my work, I sought to prove that this influence has chiefly come from the secular side of Judaism, which abandoned the ancient Jewish tradition. Certain aspects of this ancient tradition were distorted and materialized by secular Judaism, allowing for the kind of instinctual outbreaks of a given human type that had previously been held in check. In fact, I held little against the Jewish tradition as such: in my studies of esotericism, I had frequently quoted the Kabbalah, ancient Hebrew texts and Jewish authors (not to mention my praise of Michelstaedter, himself a Jew, and my interest in the work of another Jew, Weininger, whose most important book I endeavored to publish in a new Italian edition). I discussed the development of Judaism as a corrosive force in one chapter of The Myth of Blood and in an article I published in the fifth volume of Research on the Jewish Question (Forschungen zur Judenfrage). Here, too, my chief emphasis lay on the inner race and on actual behavior. Finally, from a historical perspective, I denounced both the one-sidedness and the dangers of fanatical, visionary anti-Semitism - something I also stressed in my introduction to Preziosi’s edition of the well-known and much debated Protocols of the Elders of Zion. What I denounced, in other words, was the danger of believing that Judaism alone is enemy: such a belief I was even inclined to see as one of the tactics employed in what I described as the 'occult war', a tactic which makes the enemy focus on a limited' area in order to divert his attention from other areas, where the attack continues unnoticed. What was necessary, I argued, was rather to be aware of the occult front of global subversion and of the forces of anti-Tradition in their entirety - something I had adequately described in Revolt Against the Modern World. The ultimate framework of the Jewish question might be described as a metaphysical struggle protracted throughout the ages. Within such a framework, certain organizations - most recently, political Freemasonry, as well as secular Judaism - have merely played the role of tools subordinate to vaster influences. [...]
