Another aspect of Hollywood through the eyes of a Jew is that there is no movie that shows the bad side of Jews, none that I know of.
There is no movie where the entire movie is about a particular bad deed of a Jew or done by a Jew or Jews. It is as if that is a forbidden subject
I believe if such a movie was made it would be too clear to too many people. The effects of that could reach into the worst fears of the Jews.

Spike Lee made a film very critical of Jews in the jazz industry, I never saw it but I know he suffered future funding because of it.

Never heard of it but thanks for the information.

As I see it American cinema is through the eyes of Jews. A quick summary how we see the world through Hollywood include (not in any order) -Our perception of Germany, the axis powers, Nazism and “the” Holocaust. It is completely warped. -Our perception of pagan cultures including the ancient Roman Empire (violent, slave driven, a rather depraved culture of bloody acts in the Colosseum with little interest of her various cultures, it music, arts, and the high refinement of her philosophies to faith, hardly any mention of the Hippodrome except in Ben-hur). That of ancient Egypt, Babylonia, Sumeria. Ancient… Read more »
A hymn to Hermes
Guest

“Logos” comes from Heraclitus and he definitely didn’t mean “the word”. He was describing something akin to Dharma or laying out a doctrine of natural law. Associating the OT with Greek philosophy is an interpolation.

Mark Brahmin
Guest
My point, which I will expand on in as-of-yet unpublished works, and not here, is that Logos, appearing in both a Christian and pre-Christian context, is ultimately a metaphor for the power of language or “the Word”. “The Word” and its careful use, as appears in the Bible for example, establishes order. This is evident through the Christian period where the Word of God or the Bible was, in a sense, the “order of the West”, through its own ingenious use of language and through the suppression of contrary language. If it comes up again in the podcast, I’ll treat… Read more »
A hymn to Hermes
Guest
Thanks for the reply. Looking forward to the piece. I believe Heraclitus called it “The Word” not as a metaphor however but as a way of giving his philosophy authority. It was an eternal truth and Heraclitus was just the messenger and ‘The Word’ being a poetic appellation for ‘the message’ or ‘the account’. Of this Word’s being forever do men prove to be uncomprehending, both before they hear and once they have heard it. For although all things happen according to this Word, they are like the unexperienced experiencing words and deeds such as I explain when I distinguish… Read more »

Appreciate the response. I’ll treat this as part of a larger piece so don’t look for a piece on “Logos” only! Thanks for listening.

Interestingly, Hermes was conceived as the Logos of Zeus.

Heraclitus says one thunderbolt runs through all.

The fire that runs through all being is the lightning of Zeus…

War is all.

The Catholic intellectual E. Michael Jones is almost certainly where they are getting this from. He says “Logos” is the “Word” in John’s Gospel and he uses the concept as a way to universalize Christianity.

Bantz Henriksen
Guest

Logos is in the NT; the Gospels are in Greek. The Church Fathers piggybacked on Hellenistic philosophy.

This comment isn’t about film but Children’s Literature. There was talk about reclaiming “The Rainbow”. Read “The Mixed-Up Chameleon” by Eric Carle. If you’re sentient and above 2nd grade reading level, I shouldn’t need to explain further. Also, consider Carle’s sad history involved in WWII and the Korean War. It doesn’t get much simpler than this.

No, he will not. Like the print editions of Radix, like Radix itself, like the original Alt Right, etc, you can expect Spencer to lose interest and just wander away to his next vanity project.

Very interesting. Im good at going deeper into films but I had not seen the Jesus myth in the matrix. About post literate. I think this is an exceedingly exciting development. Us humans, we did not evolve to read and write, its a very recent development. Our ancestors could configure poetry while speaking. The could tell stories that we can not dream of telling today. It is also great that the centralization of storytelling is being broken. It has been increadibly harmful, not just to us but to all humans. 500 years ago I could go from Stockholm to the… Read more »

The logic of industrialization leads to the mass production of uniform consumer goods so that you get economies of scale and can make them cheap enough for the largest possible market. I don’t think anyone anticipated that this trend would result in making human minds across cultures more uniform and fungible, however.

500 years ago your ass would be dead from the plague.

this is what happens when people have it too comfortable.. They start getting existential crises and start getting nostalgic about some idealized reactionary view of history

rutger4

That would be 650 years ago, not 500. And maybe yes. Maybe no. My ancestors did not die from plague however. If they had, I would not have existed. You seem to embrace this individualistic lifeexperiencecentric perspectiv that I am criticizing. Imho, it is one of the main strengths of nationalism, to turn against that me me me my perpsective mindset. What is life for? According to you? But you bring up an important problem. Because our civilization has defeated infant mortality. All of us that are alive today are to over 90% made of genetic material that would not… Read more »

What has race got to do with this? It is the same in all countries with centralized storytelling and good logistics systems. If anything im showing the advantages of existing clan cultures. Im showing the advantages with illiterate societies. And im showing the genetic strenght of peoples that did not eliminate infant mortality 150 years ago.
Do you even read what you comment? Or are you just unlucky when you are thinking?

the idea that there was more evolutionary selective pressure before we had modern medicine or sanitation is not new. But like most people who advocate eugenics, you don’t seem to be too enthusiastic about putting yourself on the chopping block (or those you care about) first further, what is the point of technology but to surpass our natural limitations? Evolution is very slow, and often inefficient or even counter productive. It’s not “smart” – not like intelligence. Imagine a day where we can modify ourselves to have 500 IQ, or have AI assisting our brain functions so our consciousness can… Read more »

Yes, think of all the netflix-shows and pornhub-clips we could watch simultaneously. THEN we would truly be fulfilled!

Also: eugenics does not require anyone to put their head on the chopping block. All it requires is the implementation of eugenic incentives.

To be against eugenics is akin to being against quality as a concept. Please answer this: if you made an oil painting, that you were really proud of, would you let me scribble all over it with my marker pen?

rutger4
Guest

I have never advocated eugenics. Your reading skills are truly sub par.
Furthermore, “enjoying having a different style of dress than the next village” just shows our utter difference of perspective. It seems to you life is about enjoyment. Personal gratification.

Atlantian Nationalist

Atlantian Nationalist

And what is your life about, but enjoyment? its not like you spend your free time taking cold showers while flagellating your own back with a horse whip.. you read, you post your opinins online, you LARP about days gonebye and how modern life sucks. This gives you enjoyment, or you wouldn’t do it. Even the masochist is activating some pleasure/reward center in his brain. Just because you think you’re some moral superior of me doesn’t mean it makes the chemical reactions any different, bro

Its not altright its disqus, their spam detection algorithms are mysterious. Something you’re trying to post is triggering it, after your account gets flagged somehow. Try making a new account, that fixes it usually

rutger4

Btw, “morally superior”. Morality can only exist within a group. Our ability for morality and moral condemnation was formed by evolution so that groups could function more effectively internally and organize themselves better in order to better compete against other groups. Hence, universal morality is an oximoron. So in order for anyone of us two to be “morally superior” we have to be in the same group, imho.

Thanx for tip, ill try: You seem to think everything i write is a political program or a prescription for personal action. It is not. I very rarely talk about what should be. I merely talk about what is. And compare it to history. Its hard enough to figure out where we are and where we have been. I do not think im morally superior to you.

Drive is the ultimate alt right movie.
White male protagonist is autistic and socially maladaptive from living in a rootless urban environment.
Villains are scheming jews.
White male’s sense of chivalry gets him into trouble with said jews and race-mixing White girl.

Nicky
Guest

Though I love and enjoyed Drive very much, the White Male kills and sacrifices for the White woman who is a race mixer and her mixed child. Not sure how that would be Alt Right?

Soundtrack is 👌

Pioneer American
Guest

fun fact: I’ve forgotten the source, but somewhere I picked up the idea that the alt-right’s taste for fash-wave or whatever, comes from ‘Drive’.

Vinzenz Stemberg
Guest

That’s really just the 80s in general though. Never heard of it so I looked it up and that’s pretty much “The Miami-Malibu” style right there, like Wraith and Knight Rider.
If it exists in the future, it’s more on the Syndicate/GITS/Snatcher side.
It’s probably really likely that the international success of Vice City and Ghost in the Shell primed everyone for something like this. Oh and one recurring arcade title.comment imagecomment image http://www.vizzed.com/videogames/scd/screenshot/Night%20Striker-3.png

re: The Terminator

Skynet or The Terminator is Herod, trying to kill Christ before he can save mankind.

But please start using White instead of pejorative “gentile.”

I’m more interested in seeing what Spencer has to say about healthcare in part two of his essay. Not that Dick goes to the movies won’t be fun. Or Dick reads a novel might be fun too. There is and has been a real shortage of fiction geared to White gentiles. Well, the Irish Catholics and the Italians seem attracted to Jew mass media swill like Jack Ryan, and Mario Puzo.

The nerds have taken over Hollywood. Do Jewish boys read comic books more than white boys? That could explain a lot.

I remember when I used to listen to video game podcasts and read Vdare. I kept thinking, “when are some people going to start doing rightwing podcasts?” Now there are so many that I can’t begin to even keep up with them.

Vdare has always been lame for the lack of comments. I read it 10-12 years ago, then moved onto Takimag and the first Alt Right site.

It seems that both ‘alts’ always had a problem with being dry as toast before this gen. Meme warfare = autists finally learned how to communicate their finds to normies. I look at things like that, Telesur, or LewRockwell (for a pair of random centrist and far left picks) and ‘KNOW’ they are saying some important things here, but I have to force myself to read through it. Counterpunch is the absolute worst because Cockburn (hah!) has a strict no-media (images, sound, video, etc) policy, and has since it opened because he believe they will ‘distract the reader.’ That’s probably… Read more »
