    Did you actually read him? It is supposed to fall around 2200, but it would be around 2000 when the West would enter it's final stages, and a Caesar would emerge. He wasn't that far off.

    Compared to the 13th Century of our era, I find no recognizable form of culture in the modern West. Televisions and plastic assets don't make up for it. Neither do sex performances at the theater. I no longer consider myself part of this society and I barely think any conscious man does.

      The problem is that you don't go outside to actually participate in the culture. You just stay inside all day yearning for the culture of 800+ years ago.

        He literally said a better title would be the completion or fulfillment of the West. The negatively translated title put too much emphasis on an aspect of his thought that was only there in part.

        We have a new Culture, one in which television/radio has become the central and only artistic theme. For good or for ill, we have nothing in our world, or in history, that comes close to the reach, the support, the sheer resources it consumes to produce and of course the massive profits and returns one gets, be it fame, money or influence.

        Read Imperium, it complements Spengler and Schmitt's work very well, as well as Carlyle and a few other earlier thinkers.

          There has always been low culture, and the question for the future is indulging merchant classes that have overstayed their world historic welcome or consciously commit great wealth and effort to hedging man's bets across the stars. We have and will have the technology to do it, so we may as Faustian well, and if it requires crushing the last dregs of the ComIntern by force of UFO grade arms, so be it-- and sooner the better.

            All the Nazbol shit is based on a mod for HOI4, there is nothing in his writing or talks to remotely suggest that he was symptomatic to Communists, or Russians. He explicitly condemns them both as being outside the European Culture.

          Since this is a Spengler thread, none of these are things.

          >The point is that socially, there's less and less culture day by day. I'm talking about groups, not individuals.
          I don't think this is true, at all. The knowledge of prior (high) Cultures like Greco-Roman, Middle-Eastern, Mayan-Aztec informs our current Culture (Western). The Western Culture is the first Culture to truly dig and research in to history and make such available to the entire mass of the Culture. This may have resulted in a wildly different world-view, or a damaged and perverted one as it has been mentioned that the influence the Classical had on Middle-Eastern (given its proximity in time and location) prevented it advancing a truly unique Culture.

          What can be said is the forms and symbolism that appear to us today are far cruder and less sophisticated as they are for a broader audience. Music, previously the domain of the Culture baring Strata of society was one the pinnacle of Western expression, now it is crude and manufactured by rote. There is a claim of artistry but it truly is not anything but refutation of what came before.

          It is from a Culture that moved from the qualitative to the quantitative. A phase which Yockey suggests is a common occurrence in the undergang of a Culture.

            Great men need to emerge to challenge the Culture propagated by Liberalism/Marxism/Democracy and allow something new to emerge, what the new will is utterly unknowable but one can hope it would be something beneficial. As mentioned earlier, Yockey made the argument that in prior cultures there was not different provinces and areas and nations that made up Classical Rome, there was Rome and while there was conflict between the Grecian Polis' there was a unified Greek world-view and at many times a unified Greek people.

            In Imperium, the well reasoned argument that Europe (the West) needs to unify in the way past cultures has done. Not in the way the modern European Union has, but under an authoritative united polity which can express a unique and new Cultural idea and fostered by Great Men outlined in the work of men like Carlyle.

            A badly worded sentence on my part, there was provinces and areas and more but there was no competing nation-states within the polity that was the Roman Empire or Republic. There was Roman and there was non-Roman. There was not multiple provinces of modern-day Italy trying to usurp, compete and fight against Rome's supremacy. After the early wars with the Etruscans they never rose up and maintained a separate polity in competition with Rome through its lifespan.

            The Caesars and the world empire don't solve anything, they just trigger cultural winter and begin mass standardization.
            They are doomed from the start.
            They and the second religiousness are a desperate attempt at revival, to relive the old glory. But nothing truly changes, architecture grows secular and banal, art atrophies and creativity ceases. Everything crystalizes into pre-fabricated forms, architecture becomes gigantic to compensate for its shallowness, art become ssomething of provincial craftsmen. The culture turns into a gigantic museum to itself. It's people sink back into barbarity.
            The caesars slowly devolve into cruder and cruder despotism until the empire at last gives out and the civilization enters perpetual stasis.
            Whether it collapse or endure, nothing new will come from it.
            Tl;dr: Le based CHVD IMPERIVM is a mirage and you are playing right into Spengler's timeline. Same for the Twitter chuds who believe Faustian civilization could survive in space.

            Not necessarily, Russia seems to be doing fine. The barbarian cultures (Africa, SEA, arguably Latin america and Polynesia) seem to be doing fine enough.
            Faustian civilization exhausts itself like any other. It's technology will stagnate, it will stop making new things and turn into a shrine to itself.
            More than anything I'm worrying we are running out of places for new cultures to emerge. And new barbarian people's to create those cultures.
            Also, call them cultures. In Spenglerian terms, being a civilization means your culture is close to death.

            I really doubt technology on the level even seen in Africa can exist in some stagnant stage without inherently improving. That level of technology requires a high degree of globalization which necessitates prompt improvements. Either you reduce technological progress back 500 years or by sheer natural selection the surviving technology will propagate itself again, somewhere, more efficiently. It doesn't seem like there's any escaping it.

            No, the technic (that being the way in which something is utilized) in which it is applied and utilized in a Culture is what matters. If technics are use to make life trivial that will result will be detrimental. The emergence of technology is not itself Faustian but the central means by which Western Man uses it to assert his own authority over things is very Faustian.

            An example
            Faustian man understands how soil works and thinks of it as a chemical reaction and that to get better soil one needs to simply increase potassium and then moderate the abortion of it with another chemical thereby achieving mastery over it. Now the individual might have varying views on technology and technic but the group gestalt collective feeling is what directs action. He understands the damage he does to the soil in this method but has no choice but to continue doing so as the world-view he is within demands it.

            If the technic of soil improvement was used as a means to compliment farming it may gradually affect the Faustian mindset and move towards a more natural means of living, not entirely dependent of technology.

            That is directly said in the books. Caesarism arises during the transition from Culture to Civilization, which is the creative and vital exhaustion of a Culture, its energies now spent it sits and grows slowly lesser over time

            The only part you are wrong is when you conflate Authoritarian (Non-Liberal, Non-Marxist, Non-Democratic) systems of government with crude Caesarism and Despotism. There is nothing to presuppose a new Culture can arise out of what we have now. Even if it begins as a Moonlight Culture like Japan.

            True enough, and it may never happen. But I don't see that as a reason to not work towards it.

            Latin america is also developing a faustian offshoot autism culture.
            Or will, eventually.
            I am fully willing to debate why it's not faustian.

            Latin American is a moonlight culture, in that it gives of no light of its own and simply reflects the greater light from America. The light in this case being what we know and see today as Faustian Culture.

            They could, but the destabilization of Europe is the goal here. To stop Russia would mean the end of destabilization.

            Imagine thinking this while your own currency devalues while attempting to punish some le ebil foreign dictator through sanctions and whatnot. Why should Putin stop your elites who are destroying their own middle class? The war doesn't impact Russia itself nearly as much. He even got most of the recruits from the Asian steppe mystery meat reservoir, something the west is still trying to import from ME/Africa, since any government in the west that even starts openly talking about a draft falls overnight? Country too, there is not a single western country it's people are ready to fight for, they'll just up and leave more quickly than Ukrainian women or Syrian rocket scientists kek.

            Putin's job is to destabilize Europe, this is historically all Russia has ever done as if it is their innermost expression of life. From the Tsar through the Soviet Empire to the broken kleptocracy they rule over now. He is a golem of the israelites that rule over the West now, one who's support play's in to the hands of the system as much as support for Ukraine does.

          [...]
          The real tragedy of reading Spengler though is not that culture is all but gone but that the civilization we were supposed to have in its place is nearly as hard to detect. It’s a civilization, but a really gross and ignoble sort of one.

          you can’t dislike modernity you must never go outside and are maladjusted for that reason
          I'm not saying you can't dislike modernity, but the second half is pretty accurate. However, for all the complaining people here do about modernity, it seems they don't actually know much about it, or how it's really not that much different from what came before it. Old and middle-aged women still huddle about in groups to gossip; depending on where you live, they might even still be hanging out their clothes to dry; kids still ride their bicycles around or play games in the street, and scream at the top of their lungs and annoy all their neighbors; the stray cat still stares at you as you walk by; the dog still barks in the morning and begs to be taken on walks, and runs around the house happy when his owner comes back home; women still lie and men still lie, and both still hurt the other; the sun still rises and falls on us the same as it used to; the moon still shines in the night and fades in the early morning like it always has; people still argue, people still hate, we still go to war, just in different ways; we still get ant or moth infestations or get creeped out by a wienerroach crawling on the floor of the kitchen; people are still usurious and greedy; we still look back on the past and say things were better then than they are now; we still look at our current situation and feel like it must be the worst it's ever been; we still look towards the future and think there is none; we still have get sick, we still get better; we still have bad days and good days; we still desire sex; we still desire mutual understanding; we still desire religion and we still hate religion; we still value beauty and we still hate beauty; we still talk about great men and poor men (the great men are still always the men we like, and never the ones we don't like); new discoveries are still being made; nepotism still puts people in places they don't deserve to be; I could go on and on. But really, it seems that most people rather enjoy basking in the doom and gloom of hopelessness and the glory of dead people and dead nations than living their own lives with pride, confidence, and strength.

            Every last one of those examples is important, because they all return to culture. Thousands of years ago the men of ancient Greece were bemoaning the death of Cretan pottery and saying that all their contemporaries were losers. It's ridiculous how you'll see people quoting "Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times..." all the time, yet it still doesn't register to them that it's all cyclical and that there is of course still hope for the future.

            Ok, but do you want to be the oppressed serf in the eras yet to come, like did the Romans go from conquerant founders of states and bringers of laws, to the absolute sheeple slaves that the Italians should become up until the 19th Century, the constant playtoy of Longobards, Franks, Burgundians, Swiss, Germans and Austrians that they became throughout the Middle Ages. You Sir, you are displaying absolute slave morality.

            Every great culture that declines becomes a slave nation more or less immediately afterwards. India, conquered numerous times, even by Greeks, Assyria the first civilization, Iranians, Egyptians, Greeks, Turks, have many wieners under their belt, Egypt declined from civilization to province to colony, Greece became Roman province, Italy became conquered by Germanics.

            I'm not saying there will be greats "after the Westerners", I'm saying just what I said earlier. "It seems that most people rather enjoy basking in the doom and gloom of hopelessness and the glory of dead people and dead nations than living their own lives with pride, confidence, and strength." I don't see how I'm displaying slave morality by being sick of all the whining and despair. There IS a future for the West. Taking it as a foregone conclusion that the West must fall is the same as giving up the greatness of the West.

        I don't have to go outside to experience culture. Medieval castle culture was practiced in the castles, bourgeois culture in the houses. And the point isn't that I can't individually go and participate in culture, the point is that socially, there's less and less culture day by day. I'm talking about groups, not individuals.

        The real tragedy of reading Spengler though is not that culture is all but gone but that the civilization we were supposed to have in its place is nearly as hard to detect. It’s a civilization, but a really gross and ignoble sort of one.

            No, it's not. The only tragedy is being aware that our perceptions can be compared and contrasted to previous Culture. Faustian Man had dug and unearthed alternate World-Views, and while we can not at all understand them as the inhabitants of these Cultures did, they can impart an impression which can ultimately damage us.

          Since this is a Spengler thread, none of these are things.

          >The point is that socially, there's less and less culture day by day. I'm talking about groups, not individuals.
          I don't think this is true, at all. The knowledge of prior (high) Cultures like Greco-Roman, Middle-Eastern, Mayan-Aztec informs our current Culture (Western). The Western Culture is the first Culture to truly dig and research in to history and make such available to the entire mass of the Culture. This may have resulted in a wildly different world-view, or a damaged and perverted one as it has been mentioned that the influence the Classical had on Middle-Eastern (given its proximity in time and location) prevented it advancing a truly unique Culture.

          What can be said is the forms and symbolism that appear to us today are far cruder and less sophisticated as they are for a broader audience. Music, previously the domain of the Culture baring Strata of society was one the pinnacle of Western expression, now it is crude and manufactured by rote. There is a claim of artistry but it truly is not anything but refutation of what came before.

          It is from a Culture that moved from the qualitative to the quantitative. A phase which Yockey suggests is a common occurrence in the undergang of a Culture.

          > The Western Culture is the first Culture to truly dig and research in to history and make such available to the entire mass of the Culture
          I see Western culture as just Romano-Germanic culture, like it was throughout the Middle Ages, with the history part just being added after the European nations became Imperial, but there's no reason to
          believe that other nations behaved similarly during their very real Imperial eras. A Chinese or a Middle Easterner might use a car, a fridge, and other assets considered Western inventions, but in the end, they are just means to fulfill the needs of a Chinese, of a Middle Easterner, and not actually culturally Western habits. He uses his car to go the Bazar and the fridge to store halal meat; nothing implies that he has accepted Western culture in any form.

          I don’t find that liberating at all. The idea that losing a dignified mode of life is in some way liberating or in any sense at all positive is ridiculous. You’re left to do nothing more than tolerate life in that scenario and I just don’t have the personality for it.

          I don't mean that you have to stop being social and abstractly forming part in the society, or that you have to actively seek it's destruction, but to merely reduce it's authority to the lowest common denominator for it has no such authority anymore, governments loose the more energy and vigour the more a nation has become degenerate. If nowadays the governments gives you a fine when you don't pay your taxes, tomorrow they won't be able to do anything about it at all. This crucial phase in the decline of the West is very close to occur.

            I'm unsure what you mean by Romano-Germanic, saying as Germanic culture was one of the few that was preserved against Roman authority. Germanic culture (again, not Faustian in the sense you are using it) was born out of the dark gothic forests of Europe (specifically Germany) and from which grew the urge to cross out and into the darkness, to barter with the unknown for more. If we're discussing things in Spenglerian terms, we need to be clear about what is meant.

            >A Chinese or a Middle Easterner might use a car, a fridge, and other assets considered Western inventions, but in the end, they are just means to fulfill the needs of a Chinese, of a Middle Easterner, and not actually culturally Western habits. He uses his car to go the Bazar and the fridge to store halal meat; nothing implies that he has accepted Western culture in any form.
            I'm not sure what you're saying here. Nothing here is related to Culture, Culture is the all encompassing world-view. What one feels, thinks and even how one thinks. How one approaches technics, politics, power, the way one conceptualizes metaphysical concepts. Simply using a fridge or a car is unrelated to these no more than the plough was to past Cultures, at least it is not relevant beyond how it removes the possibility of soil-boundness or natural connection.

            Given that Faustian man strikes for dominance over all that around him, including nature, all modern conveniences serve to further lift him up above nature as to better control it.

            These things are hard to articulate because we’re talking basically about a sense of being, but for me, it is a sense of the impossibility of a certain sort of life which I would consider both dignified and noble and those are the essential things for life in my opinion. This is a civilization where human things are changed in increasingly inhuman ways, where people are sheperded into large institutions and care taken by “Human Resources” (which itself reveals the attitude), where the only things that are really sold to young men are being careerist hustlers and strivers - kissing ass for university degrees as better or worse universities prestige-wise or making money, either as an entrepreneur or a laborer. Even traditional religion is undermined, mocked, subverted, literally made gay and battle looks a lot more like a terrible car accident than anything in the history books. And speaking of history, that is the best rubric. History tells us what can be offered. Does anyone really feel that our time lives up in any way to history? We have these great machines and vaccines and we live longer lives and yet we are perhaps the most irrelevant people to the history books that have ever lived. But the icing on the cake is that in spite of all this, it’s not even like we really enjoy our lives in these wonderful material conditions. Rather, we live in cities filled with crime, poverty, drugs, broken up concrete, roadways littered with trash, our food supply is literally fake, I could go on and on. So when you call it a preference, I just have to push back on that because it’s not really a preference. It’s this really deeply rooted intuitive sense that something is deeply wrong and this is all fricked up. Let’s not even get into how literally is (literally or figuratively) dead so if you find anything worthwhile in that woe to you, since this is a literature board and that topic has been beaten to death.

            I will continue to recommend authoritarian literature, as it was from within there that I found a good expression of what I would want to embody and encourage.

            It may not be popular, it may not materialize in my lifetime, it may not be welcome but I don't see politics as having been completed by the imposition of Liberal Democracy, sooner or later Authoritarianism (in some form) will reappear and the artificial bubble that surrounds the West may eventually burst.

            I really do not wish to get in to a contest of who has read more Jünger, but I will place one of his last novels, Der Waldgang, above the rest. It is far more easily read as a critique against the Post-War Germany rather than as a Pre-War Germany. Especially given his allusions to a small minority bringing down a majority, as well as half a dozen other references to the East.

I'm actually in the same position as you, I regularly visit my home village in the Balkans to maintain family relations and cultural ties, but we work hard and have pretty successful lives as immigrants.

            Read literature that espouses Authoritarianism and Nativism. That is the only solution.

            >Tell you what the book is about
            You’re agreeing and shilling the arguments. Way more than just telling us about its contents. Rome fell. Whatever artificial construction you come up with will also fall. That’s not a “good complement to Spengler”.

            There is little I can say to convince you of anything. So I will focus my attention on those who may feel and think similar to
            and suggest a book that helped me overcome my contempt and dislike of the world I see around me in the hopes that it lifts their spirits in the same way it has me.

            I will continue to recommend authoritarian literature, as it was from within there that I found a good expression of what I would want to embody and encourage.

            It may not be popular, it may not materialize in my lifetime, it may not be welcome but I don't see politics as having been completed by the imposition of Liberal Democracy, sooner or later Authoritarianism (in some form) will reappear and the artificial bubble that surrounds the West may eventually burst.

        i have participated in the "culture", which isn't really a culture, other than drinking and doing drugs like a degenerate and being a narcissist. if you actually find fulfillment in these things you must be a Black person. take a look at the streets of big cities, which resemble 3rd world shitholes more by the day. instead of religion indoctrinating your children, there are a bunch of loser homosexuals and pedos obsessed with their buttholes and perversions teaching children about fisting and anal lube, in the name of "love".

        the books my grandpa read, he was more or less an average working man, were far beyond the reading comprehension of today's commoner. the average person today doesn't even have the ability to focus for long enough periods of time to read an actual book (random YA sci fi doesn't count as an actual book btw)

    If cultures are like living organisms then they have natural instincts. They have to wake up organically and by themselves, not because some book says so. I do think Europeans will wake up some day but only after they had been pushed too hard and possibly cornered. But they will not proceed to create some pan-European state. That’s only a fantasy in the mind of rootless American right-wingers. Each European country has its own individual identity and needs. Fascism had an artificial academic/intellectual foundation and it failed miserably. This Imperium shite is not any different. It’s doomed to fail because it’s artificial.

      Culture, with a Capital C. Not cultures. Culture is a world-view (typically) covering a huge area and a singular group of people. Influenced by their environment and acted upon by their will and intellect. Culture, Capital C, does not affect clothing, food, accent or similar surface level aspects of culture. Hence why in the last 400 years, perhaps longer, every single European people contributed to whatever movement was happening, from Christendom to the Enlightenment. Their world-view is the same, despite superficial differences.

      The only exception if Russia/Slavic who's innermost goal is to be a refutation of Faustian man, to destroy it or reflect in a mirror something that they had done.

          Russia was unique and alone in its expression until several years after the Soviet Revolution. After the revolution and things settled for the Russian people Spengler was curious as to what shape the Russian/Slavic people would shape their future in to, there was plenty to support that it would be fully capable of forming a unique Culture, sadly it did not. Killing all those with an IQ in triple digits did not help. Thus now it is a Moonlight Culture, reflecting dimly the light emanating off nearby bodies.

    I think his conception of cultures as organisms is just fundamentally wrong. "Western civilization" as we define it today is basically just a collection of countries that have the most power. They are all liberal cosmopolitan states who control everything. They have little in common with any linear path of Greco-Roman heritage. They don't even have much in common with their actual cultural heritage no matter the country. Germany for instance is an absolutely buck-broken liberal pacifist state that has actively worked to dismantle its culture.

He barely sent 1/3 of his standing army to Ukraine and another 600 thousand volunteers priorly not in the army joined the fight. There's a potential 10 million warriors in Russia currently riht now.

            Latin American is a moonlight culture, in that it gives of no light of its own and simply reflects the greater light from America. The light in this case being what we know and see today as Faustian Culture.

            They could, but the destabilization of Europe is the goal here. To stop Russia would mean the end of destabilization.

            It is causing civil unrest, decreased industrial production, international backlash, destruction of private and public property in both Ukraine and Russia, loss of life, highly skilled military units, expensive military equipment, and with each passing day the Ukrainians hate Russia more, which will make Ukraine an expensive colony filled with potential rebels, assuming of course Russia even manages to conquer it. Russia has everything to gain from annexing the whole country in a short period of time, and everything to lose from stalling out the war without reason. The Russian forces are clearly aware of this too, when the invasion first began they put all their forces and effort into rushing Kiev, clearly attempting a fast occupation of the country, which was the only way to take annex Ukraine without significant damage of some sort or another.

        I'm struggling to work out why you think it is not a Moonlight Culture, one that adopts and grows out as a lesser version of another greater Culture. Like Japan is to China.

        To what extent are israelites responsible for the creative decline?

        Not the reason, but their group behavior has certainly hastened it. In Imperium they are named as Culture Distortorers as they still embody the israeli (Magian) World-view which they have preserved within their community and which prevents them from assimilating, which in turn caused them to persecuted, which in turn led to growing resentment and the wish to inflict harm upon the West.

        Fair, but that's not the interpretations Rightists have. They predict apocalypse. Total collapse. They post every single day on social media about the communist tyrants subverting the West from within to destroy it. They make no concession that the West will still be the dominant power despite cultural decline. They predict war, chaos and anarchy, which is fricking stupid and unreasonable.

        The West is not the dominant super power in the world, we are now witnessing a multi-polarity world. Which was the goal for many nations outside the West, which is a direct weakening of America as the only super power. Further, despite the ability to project force, it would appear America has systemic problems which prevent it actually utilizing that force, not least of which is a disgruntled population.

        Why can’t Europeans just shoot up the boats full of African hordes and deport the ones who managed to get on land?

          Faustian culture obtained christianity from the Magians, this does not, however, make Faustian culture magian. The civilizations influence eachother and adapt different things.
