Stalin’s War by Professor Ernst Topitsch- A Review From a Nationalist Perspective of the Harsh Reality of Ideological Power Politics:
English Language Translation by Arthur Taylor (1987) St. Martin’s Press, New York.
If the basis of nationalism is the running of a country in the most efficient manner possible, that being in the interests of the nation as one people united by a common interest, then the book here under review is invaluable in informing on any future foreign policy of a Nationalist government. Aside from it’s obvious connection with foreign policy, as a read it is highly informing on the nature of International Marxism and that ideology’s ruthless use of ‘moral’ positions from which to increase it’s influence and power. Some would say this could be limited to Stalin although that of course fails to appreciate the influence on Stalin of Marxist dialectical theory, and also of the influence of that figure who first applied theoretical Marxism to practice; that of Lenin.
Analysts forecasts that the SNP is set for a council vote 'landslide' should set alarm bells ringing across Scotland. By fielding more than 600 candidates the SNP is out to crush all opposition.
Here in Scotland we have the Single Transferable Vote system for local elections. This means you vote in preference for your most preferred candidate (or party) down to your least preferred, or just vote for one or two and forget the rest.
Wards are split into three or four seats and the SNP for the first time is standing two, three and in some case's even four candidates in almost every single ward across Scotland.
There is confusion about what art is. The qualities that make something art are intrinsic, not external. It is the artifice, the organising of elements, perspective, choice of colour etc, that make it art. The result is obtained by transforming reality and thus nature through human imagination and emotion and is realised by skill and technique.
The word Beauty (or beautiful) is descriptive if used as an adjective to express the response of the beholder to an object, or if used within a clear context; if used as an abstract noun it is universal, and therefore meaningless.
Jesus said: “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends”. John 15:13
I stand by the above statement and my friends are my Nation and people, some with faith and some with none, I make NO distinction and by deed I have in the past and will continue in the future to serve my people without any consideration of what they believe or don’t believe. With this reality in mind I invite you to read on.
In the first 2 parts of this three part thesis I had argued that our Christian heritage (not necessarily living) has been fundamental to what we call ‘The British’ our worldview, our internal outlook, indeed I suggested that the very concept of Britannia was, in the modern term 1600 until 1900, forged by the Christian faith and our sense of unity and community and was until very recently, sustained and nourished by our national faith. This is NOT in any way an abandonment of our rich ancient, pre-history cultural legacy. As an Ulster Scot whose main families have lived within the same square mile town land for almost 400 years since returning to our homeland during the plantation. Indeed as an Ulster/Scot or Ulaid my family have lived within a 50 mile radius for the last 5000 years.
The debate raging within the patriotic movement over religion - and especially Christianity - has attracted many contributions from various personages.
It has been a fascinating, eye-opening experience – if we can say one thing for certain, the debate has ‘shaken the tree’, figuratively speaking.
Please don’t think for one moment that this article is “anti-pagan” – it is not.
I have the greatest respect and reverence for the ancient beliefs of our ancestors (I find them fascinating), but I also believe these beliefs matured and developed into British Christianity, which then held sway until the present day.
I was, until quite recently, a confirmed atheist with no appreciation or faith whatsoever in the ‘supernatural’.
In 2009 Ben Stephenson, the controller of BBC drama commissioning, said that the corporation should encourage "peculiarity, idiosyncrasy, stubborn-mindedness, left-of-centre thinking."
Yet, according to its own royal charter, the BBC must "be independent in all matters concerning the content of its output". To show how we got to this undemocratic, totalitarian state I give a survey of the war on our culture and history carried on against us in our theatres for over thirty years.
They were a major phalange in the destruction of our drama in The Culture War through nihilist and then subversive drama. Their technical abilities are excellent and their facility for embodying nihilism and ideology into dramatic form exemplary. An aspiring young playwright would do well to study their use of styles and genres to explicate their message. Their works were frequently televised, films were made of them and they were performed in many countries especially on Broadway.
