Personal Testimonies

“For our own part, we ask no more than to contribute, as far as our means permit, both to the [reform of the West] and to the [understanding with the East], if indeed there is still time, and if any such result can be attained before the arrival of the final catastrophe toward which modern civilization is heading. But even if it were already too late to avoid this catastrophe, the work done to this end would not be useless, for it would serve in any case to prepare, however distantly, the ‘discrimination’ of which we spoke at the beginning, and thereby to assure the preservation of those elements that must escape the shipwreck of the present world to become the germs of the future world.”

(René Guénon, “The Crisis of the Modern World.”)
