Nietzsche, Rand, Evola, etc. are useful because they show that it is possible for rightists to tell an alternate story about the world and, in doing so, give permission to think differently.

However, they are limited in that they speak in the language of stories rather than falsifiability and therefore cannot be said to deal in truth, strictly defined. In that way, they are like artists and are useful for the same things, propaganda and personal reflection.

Still, insightful as they may be, they are not useful as evidence for the goodness of restoration or as justification for taking coercive measures to achieve it.

For that only truth will do. The sooner we discipline our minds for truth telling the sooner we will get there.
