  • How Modernism Is Fascism

    American Thinker ^ | May 28th, 2023 | Jeffrey Folks
    Modernism is a reactionary culture, a fact that I demonstrated by pointing in detail to the works of a dozen leading Modernist figures including T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, James Joyce, W.B. Yeats, Pablo Picasso, and others. In all of these writers and artists, there was a similar rejection of all that is truly modern: a democratic capitalist society in which ordinary citizens seek freedom and opportunity for themselves and their families, including economic, religious, and political liberty.

  • Ulysses at 100: the birth of the modern

    The Financial Times ^ | 1/21/22 | Colm Tóibín
    James Joyce’s Ulysses was first published in 1922, just over two weeks after the British handed over the keys of Dublin Castle to Michael Collins and his new Irish government. The other great literary event of that year was TS Eliot’s The Waste Land. Joyce’s novel had much in common with Eliot’s long poem — it dealt with the rawness of urban life using competing narrative forms, including pastiche and myth and different kinds of voices. The Waste Land sounded a sort of death knell for the narrative poem, just as Ulysses set about killing off the single-perspective, the all-knowing...

    Congressman John Joyce, representing the conservative 13th District of Pennsylvania, yesterday committed the ultimate act of treachery by joining Nancy Pelosi in voting to remove statues of Americans from the US Capitol. In one case, the bust of the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, Roger Brooke Taney, will be replaced with one of leftist Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.

    A government lawyer told Australia’s High Court on Tuesday that it could not take a constitutional ban on dual citizens being elected to Parliament literally when deciding the fates of seven lawmakers. Solicitor-General Stephen Donaghue told the High Court judges that five of the lawmakers, including three government ministers, should not be disqualified from Parliament for breaching the constitution because they did not voluntarily acquire or retain citizenship of another country. The hearing began on Tuesday and is expected to take three days. Under Section 44 (i) of the 116-year-old constitution, “a subject or citizen of a foreign power” is...

    A man who squashed a lemon meringue pie into Qantas Airways chief executive Alan Joyce’s face during a public address in Australia said Wednesday he was protesting Joyce’s advocacy for same-sex marriage. Joyce, a gay, Irish-born 50-year-old, was giving a speech to 500 people in a Perth hotel on Tuesday when Tony Overheu approached from behind, pressed the pie in his face then fled. Overheu, a 67-year-old Christian and former sheep farmer, released a statement accusing Qantas and other companies that support marriage equality of “corporate bulling aimed at social engineering.” […] Joyce has been singled out for criticism by...

    I have been preaching for 20 years.  Yesterday I did something that I have never done before in a sermon.  I publicly called out false teachers and named them by name.  I said, If you listen to Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer, if you take what they teach seriously, it will not be good for you.  It will be detrimental to your long-term growth as a follower of Jesus. (You can watch the sermon by clicking here)I used to think that their error was so blatantly obvious that they could just be ignored.  I was wrong.  They are massively growing...

    As the State of Ohio celebrates completion of another successful year of concealed carry, with applications and renewals continuing at a healthy pace, it is time once again take a our bi-annual look at where the most vocal opponents of the law find themselves seven years after the law was passed. The state's predominant anti-self defense rights organization, the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence (OCAGV), operates as a tax-exempt, not-for-profit charity, or as the Internal Revenue Service refers to it, a 501(c)(3). As such, executive director Ms. Toby Hoover is required to file an IRS Form 990 each year, which...

    Bill Ayers was also scheduled to speak to “Wyoming Public School Principals” by teleconference, obviously Mr. Ayers, true to Obama’s cause was attempting to “transform America” specifically Wyoming from behind the scenes. Here’s the grab - just because Ayers speaking engagement at UW has been cancelled, it doesn’t mean he isn’t intending on having a teleconference or that the Wyoming Association of Secondary School Principals (WASSP) won’t plan another one at a later date. I'm just sayin...Why would we trust them? Ayers a self professed radical terrorist and Obama supporter, has been propped up by socialists like venomously anti-gun George...

    St. Louis Circuit Jennifer Joyce has been caught in a dust-up over her presence on a “Truth Squad” for Barack Obama. < snip > Now, here is a statement from Joyce: As a citizen, I believe that elections should be about issues. I also have enormous respect for our First Amendment and freedom of speech. My sole purpose in participating in this initiative is about getting truthful information to the voters.

    The news media's treatment of foundation involvement in public policy may have changed forever on March 17. That was the day the New York Post published "Buying 'Reform': Media Missed Millionaires' Scam," an account by one of its columnists, Ryan Sager, of the massive spending by several mainstream foundations to secure passage of the 2002 overhaul of campaign-finance laws and to keep the issue alive. Mr. Sager told his readers he had discovered "an immense scam perpetrated on the American people by a cadre of left-wing foundations and disguised as a 'mass movement.'" Foundations like Ford, Open Society, Carnegie, Joyce,...
