“They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”
One of the most powerful signs of the tragic, all-out embrace of vulgar triviality and resultant societal degeneration produced during the many regrettable developments in the twentieth-century.A HUGE wrong turn for Western Civilization.
A HUGE wrong turn for Western Civilization.The Beatles? 'Wrong turn' of what kind, Communist or the Jewishes?I wonder if you were born old, FT.
OFF-TOPIC but NOT REALLYSERMONETTE form a DISNGRANCHISED BLOGGER:Sweeping all petty details and side issues out of the way, what we desperately need to do is get back to First Principles and consider the IMMENSE difference between honest CHARITY, which is always heartfelt and strictly VOLUNTARY, and the COUNTERFEIT version aggressively promoted by the Left. The former is based entirely on faith in human kindness and a good-hearted devotion to PRINCIPLE. The latter stems from COERCION –– the threat of official ostracism, incarceration, confiscation of personal property,–– possibly torture, and even EXECUTION ––, for failure to conform to the ruthless, ever-increasing dictates of an Almighty Authoritarian STATE.Charity ceases to BE "Charity," when it is EXTRACTED at the point of a gun. Jesus Christ sought to transform us on a purely INDIVIDUAL basis, by appealing to our capacity to develop heightened awareness of the significance of and empathy for the plight of Others In so doing He sought to foster the development of a refined moral compass and a reliable good conscience in each.This could never hope to be achieved through purely TEMPORAL means.The Marxian-Cummunist-Socialist-Progressive-Liberal-Democrat-Statist model appeals to Envy, Spite, Malice, Pure Selfishness, and the Lust for Vengeance –– the absolute ANTITHESIS of Christian Doctrine.No GOOD could ever hope to come from such a poisonous philsophy, which is why Marxism and all its hideous permutations have always failed and will always will FAIL to produce anything but misery, mutually shared poverty and deprivation. It is entirely ILLUSORY to think otherwise.Doctor CARSON seems to be the only candidate who understands this thoroughly, and does every he can to abide by it. Is it any wonder the godless, cynical, manipulative, abusive beetle-shelled ENEMEDIA sought to ignore him, isolate him, and deprive him of the opportunity to speak at every available opportunity?As "Two Kings," a brilliant Christmas Anthem by Joseph Cloakey, says at the end: "We entertain Him always like a stranger, and as at first still lodge Him in a manger."INDEED!
Just remember FT, the 60's counter-culture, like Rap or Hip-Hop was a product. It was advertised, bought and sold to Western peoples. You don't HAVE to "buy it" (until it becomes "Socialiized-Gov't Mandated).
I shouldn't have blamed the Beatles for setting us on the downward spiral. The process started in 1955 with the advent of Bill Hailey and Comets, Little Richard, and then "AYULVISS," with his thick greasy hair, pasty complexion, tacky sequined clothing and tight pants who swiveled his hips while stroking his guitar like a gigantic cock he was shamelessly jerking off in public.The Beatles came later. Not long after their arrival they claimed "We're more popular than Jesus."As i said, a tragic downward turn for Civilization.I never thought of either as a particularly Jewish thing, but now that you mention it Elvis WAS part jewish, and the Beatles were managed by one Brian Epstein. Doubtless just a coincidence, right?And YES, Lyin' Brian, all of this WAS the result of the kind of skillful manipulation and mind control on a massive scale introduced into the culture via the nascent Advertizing Industry by Eddie BERNAYS, who just happened to be –– ta ta ta TA ta TAH! –– you guessed it! –– JEWISH!
By the way, I have to admit I've been deliberately baiting poor Gert ever since his original denunciatory outburst just to get his goat. Mean of me, I know. I'm sorry.My feelings about Jews are hardly all negative. I only despise the Jewish Intellectuals who have devised and injected so many perverse, poisonous, confusing, demoralizing, debilitating, highly destructive ideas into our consciousness by infiltrating our universities, and through seductive advertising, entertainment glorifying sin, corruption and depravity, the so-called News and Information racket, and the pseudo-science of psychoanalysis that spawned unbridled Sex Obsession, The Excuse Factory where everything aberrant is explained away as a "disease," unbridled Self-Absoption, and a neurotic compulsion to seek "Therapy" and "Support Groups," for every little qualm, instead of the development of self-reliance based on good old fashioned Common Sense and Common Decency. I frankly adore Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, vincent Youmanns Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart, Oscar Hammerstein II, Franks and Arthur Loesser, and Stephen Sondheim. And where would my musical life have been were it not for the wondrous contributions of Artur Rubinstein, Rudolf Serkin, Vladimir Horowitz, Carl Friedberg, Dame Myra Hess, Solomon Cutner, Josef and Rosina Lhevinne, Emil Gilels, Clara Haskil, Wanda Landowska, Claude Frank, the internationally renowned interpreter of Beethoven and Schubert who was the kindest, most helpful and encouraging piano teacher I ever had, Jascha Heifetz, Nathan Milstein, Yehudi Menuhin, Isaac Stern, David Oistrakh, Leonid Kogan, Otto Klemperer, George Szell, Eric Leinsdorf, William Steinberg, Leonard Bernstein, James Levine, and many more who've given so much joy, while adding wonder, inspiration and keen insight into our musical life.And I never cease to be grateful to Dr. Jonas Salk and others who've made great advances in medical science, and on and on.
By the way, I have to admit I've been deliberately baiting poor Gert ever since his original denunciatory outburst just to get his goat. Mean of me, I know. I'm sorry.Don't be. You were a lot funnier when you were still... erm... 'baiting'.
In the Age of En"light"enment, an old Jewish man named Freud began to explain the "dark". Knowing how "the dark" of our own desires (secret and otherwise) could manipulate us can be used for good or evil purposes. But regardless of its "use" Freud's project was, and will continue to be, enLIGHTening, whether we accept it as such, or not. Where true Love burns Desire is Love’s pure flame; It is the reflex of our earthly frame, That takes its meaning from the nobler part, And but translates the language of the heart. - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, "Desire"
_____ CAPSULE HISTORY _____Plato and Socrates, also HippocratesReally gave Civilization a boostThen the Cruel Romans, The Church and the Germans,Marx, Freud and Split AtomsIt's prospects reduced!~ FreeThinke
The "good ol days" were pretty weak sauce if Elvis is to blame for their departure.
Should just embrace our roots ;)
Brazilian Metal? ;)
riff your face off
Sounds like Rammstein on speed.End of Western Civilisation alert DefCon 5!
Nah, Gert. That sounds like this...
I concur. :P
No, not on speed but definitely on something not too healthy...Still, as long as you can hear Satan's voice when you play it backwards, that's all that matters.
I'm not hearing it!
Proof they're not the Real Thing...Often boring, the Beatles, anyroads.
What? You a Rolling Stones fan? ;)
You must be getting old...er!
I absolutely LOVE EARLY Stones. Now they leave me stone cold.Please don't deny an Old Lefty a few good memories. ;-)
Guess you wouldn't want to hop a jetliner... ;)
