Julius Evola

“We, on the contrary–basing ourselves on a tradition much more ancient and real than the one which can be claimed by the 'faith' of Western man, on the tradition which is not proved by doctrines, but by deeds and acts of power and clairvoyance–affirm instead the possibility and the concrete reality of what we have called 'Wisdom'. We thus assert the possibility of a positive, direct, methodical, empirical knowledge in the 'metaphysical' field, just as science strives to gain in the physical field, and, just like science, it remains above any moral or philosophical belief of men.

Therefore, in the name of this Wisdom and of those who can attest to this Wisdom, we assert that all those who, within the scope of religious superstitions, by mere aspirations of the 'soul', by dogmas, traditions in the narrowest and most sectarian sense, hallucinations, and acts of blind faith, making themselves custodians of the sacred and of the divine, must be divested of authority and ousted. Those who know and who, insofar as they know and are able–just as those god-men known and venerated by all great ancient traditions–must replace those who 'believe'–the blind leading the blind.”
