“The cause of all wars and revolutions—in a word, of all violence—is always the same: negation of hierarchy.” ~ Valentin Tomberg
Modernity is the inversion of the cosmic order, the order of God. Modernity sees that the problem of humanity and the question of evil lies in Authority, and that those in positions of authority abuse power. So it repudiates absolutely all forms of authority which leads to God, the source of all Authority. Seeing freedom as unshackling the chain of being in favor of going their own way, to greener pastures off the narrow path, they take the path of the First Rebel, the one who would not serve.
What would the inversion be of the above quote?
“The cause of all wars and revolutions—in a word, of all violence—is always the same: acceptance of hierarchy.” ~ The Revolution
