>On Sunday afternoon, 23 April 1899, more than two thousand white Georgians, some of then arriving on a special excursion train, assembled near the town of Newman to witness the execution of Sam Hose, a black Georgian. Whole families turned up to watch. Parents sent notes to school asking teachers to excuse their children. Postcards were sent to those who could not attend the spectacle, and photographs were taken to preserve it in memory.
>After learning of the death of her husband at one such occasion, Mary Turner – a black woman in her eighth month of pregnancy – swore to find those responsible and have them punished. A mob assembled and decided to teach her a lesson. After tying her ankles together they hung her from a tree upside down. While she was still alive her abdomen was cut open with a knife. The infant fell from her womb and its head was crushed by a member of the crowd. Then, as hundreds of bullets were fired into her body, Mary Turner was killed.
>Were the smiling children who were photographed watching such events gnawed by remorse for the rest of their days? Or did they recall them with nostalgia and quiet satisfaction?
>It has long been known that those who perform great acts of kindness are rarely forgiven. The same is true of those who suffer irreparable wrongs. When will Jews be forgiven the Holocaust?
>Morality tells us that conscience may not be heard – but that it speaks always against cruelty and injustice. In fact conscience blesses cruelty and injustice – so long as their victims can be quietly buried.
Really enjoyable book.

For me, I got a mech eng degree, couldn’t find any job, gave up looking and now work in a factory making 11 dollars an hour. I’m thinking I’ll end it all one of these days.

>Guénon was a brainle-
He was proficient at Greek, Latin, English, Italian, German, Spanish, Sanskrit, Hebraic, Arabic and Chinese, was trained in mathematics and was extremely well-read in both eastern and western philosophy
>Guénon was a stupid posing larpe-
He was initiated into both a Vietnamese Taoist Triad as well as the al-'Arabiyya Shadhiliyya Sufi order, furthermore in all his writings he stressed the need for personal and genuine participation in whatever Traditions one aspired to follow. His acquaintances both Egyptian and western observed that he scrupulously followed Islamic observances during his life in Egypt
>Guénon was a literal nobody, he was not influenti-
Among the many western philosophers, artists and authors who were influenced by him or who heaped praise on him include Carl Schmitt, Georges Bataille, Aleksander Dugin, Antonin Artaud, Olavo de Carvalho, André Breton, Mircea Eliade, Alain Danielou, Julius Evola, André Malraux, Albert Gleizes, René Daumal, Raymond Queneau, Paul Ackerman, Huston Smith, William Chittick, Steve Bannon, Harry Oldmeadow, James Cutsinger and Hossein Nasr. Furthermore as Nasr notes in his article 'The Influence of Rene Guenon in the Islamic World', Guénon is well-known and influential among the intelligentsia including traditional Islamic scholars in certain Islamic countries such in Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and Malaysia.
>Guénon just made a bunch of stupid and unjustified comparisons between religio-
To the contrary over the course of some twenty odd books he painstakingly and patiently elucidated the fundamental agreement between the metaphysics of Advaita Vedanta, Taoism, Sufism, Hermeticism and Christian esoterism, work that Coomaraswamy built on and further confirmed

>Bannon explicitly rejects them, and also rejects any association with (Richard) Spencer, whom he calls a self-promoting “freak” and a “goober.” Instead, the common themes of the collapse of Western civilization and the loss of the transcendent in books such as Guénon’s The Crisis of the Modern World (1927) and Evola’s Revolt Against the Modern World (1934) are what drew Bannon’s interest to Traditionalism (although he was also very much taken with its spiritual aspects, citing Guénon’s 1925 book, Man and His Becoming According to the Vedanta, as “a life-changing discovery”). Bannon, more synthesist than strict adherent, brought to Guénon’s Traditionalism a strong dose of Catholic social thought, in particular the concept of “subsidiarity”: the principle expressed in Pope Pius XI’s 1931 encyclical, Quadragesimo anno, that political matters should devolve to the lowest, least centralized authority that can responsibly handle them—a concept that, in a U.S. political context, mirrors small-government conservatism. Everywhere Bannon looked in the modern world, he saw signs of collapse and an encroaching globalist order stamping out the last vestiges of the traditional.

The data is clear on the number of suicides, and by extension on cases of clinical depression which precedes suicide.
You wondered about how many were reported and how many were covered up.
I said let's stick with what we know because if we speculate, we'll get nowhere fast.
>This chain was started because someone said we've become lost souls without purpose.
I understand, and my response to it was that our traditional sources of meaning and joy (community, family, religion) have been eroded to the point of almost collapse, helped by the increasing culture of mindless hedonism. I think that is, in large part to blame for the declining mental health of people, or to put it more poetically, as you have - the source of the lost souls and the lack of purpose.

Our liberated and permissive culture is a perfect fit for an hypermediated society based on consumerism. A therapeuthic regime based on the policing and medication of one's 'mental health' has suceeded the christian regime of subjectivity and its outmoded notions of guilt and sin. While publically, the individual is encouraged to express his or her 'authentic self'. likewise, 'traditional' gender roles are inefficient in a highly automated an information and services economy that demands ever more flexibility. Even bourgeoisie mores become increasingly transactional and contractual. A customer of patient centered approach replaces the notion of citizenship. The ideology of the liberated individual actually requires massive bureaucratic support, like any other mass ideology it has to keep its subjects mobilised through an hegemonic system of propaganda. The technosocial structure is atomising by nature, as it functions as an inverted benthamite panopticon where everyone is at once a guard and a prisioner. 2020s America will be more like 1950s America than either the right or the left would want to admit,the high modernist military industrial consumer structure isn't going away.
