Two ways of nationalism by Julius Evola

A prominent theorist of traditionalism Julius Evola has devoted a lot of articles to nationalism as a phenomenon and ideology. Indeed, in the field of practical politics is almost impossible to imagine traditionalism outside of nationalist worldview in politics - can you actually imagine a practical traditionalism in  concept of internationalism? I can`t.

Evola wrote about the two types of nationalism. The first type is quite populist, actively uses the concept of a nation, constantly builds their rhetoric on this concept, but does not seek to go beyond notions of liberal democracy, not try to find a purely nationalist alternatives for the development of society and plays a role of nationalist vanguard in the company of liberals and socialists (We can observe such situation in the number of European countries). The other type, in contrast, longs to establish of non-illiberal and non-socialist order, recovering of aristocratic principles of society, becomes a kind of traditionalist engine, leads to the recovery of traditionalism in society. 

De facto, the first type of nationalism stands against the Tradition itself and hence is dangerous for nationalism and traditionalism. He points to the the path, which leads to elimination of a nation, socialist and liberal ideas are seek to the cosmopolitan world. This is the way of national destruction, this type of "nationalism" has no soul, it exists between the parliamentary elections. Therefore Evola rejects the first type, opposing him the second type as a viable alternative.

Therefore, reading the works Dontsov and Bandera, you will realize that they meant the same thing that you can find in the works of Evola and Spengler.
