HAVING endured life under communist and liberal-capitalist regimes in both Croatia and the United States respectively, Tom Sunic is particularly well-qualified to address the serious problem of postmodern America and to examine the hard-line theocracy that lies at the very core of its current geopolitical impetus.
The author is renowned both for his honesty and for his penetrating insight, and this — similar to his previous literary offerings - represents a perfect blend of empirical and intellectual wisdom. However, this is not simply the latest in a series of gratuitous Eurocentric attacks on the American people themselves; it is a scathing indictment of their system and the wider implications it has for the Drogué Au Son - Various - Rap Mag N°28 of the world.
More importantly, Sunic argues that the nostalgic America of the past had, and still retains, the creativity and potential to become a positive driving force for those inhabitants of European extraction. This useful form of terminology allows Sunic to dissect, examine and formulate American development over the last years.
Sunic has been a victim of this narrow-mindedness himself, although the fact that he is no longer resident in America or working for the Croatian Drogué Au Son - Various - Rap Mag N°28 does, at least, mean that he is at slightly more liberty to criticise the intellectual hypocrisy of the international thought police. The rabid vilification of those who dare to stand outside of the liberal parameters, Sunic explains, is being perpetuated by intellectuals who not only cut their teeth in the leftist environs of the Frankfurt School, but who also represent a secularised version of early American Calvinism.
In fact the theocratic roots of America are much to blame for the millenarian fervour that now drives the free-market economy and its army of docile consumers. Why should one worry about the passing of the great white race if that race has only been involved in endless economic transactions?
Sunic goes on to speculate that communism — as a direct result of its egalitarianism - has to a large extent managed to achieve its ends through the American system. Some European authors observed that communism died in the East because it has already been implemented in the West. We see this opportunistic trend happening in the economic sphere, too, Drogué Au Son - Various - Rap Mag N°28 Big Business conglomerates continue to transfer their business operations to China and the Third World.
Brown openly contend — a radical and pronounced form of leftism. The seeds, therefore, had already been sown at the very beginning of American history. One of the more successful weapons in the struggle for liberal ascendancy has been political correctness. The kind of terminological double-speak that we so often hear emanating from the mass media, particularly during the Anglo-American attacks on Iraq and Afghanistan, had previously been developed for the purposes of self-policing, censorship and social engineering.
Sunic rightly attributes the early origins of political correctness to the Frankfurt School, which, as the name suggests, was a German-based think-tank headed mainly by Jewish intellectuals who had fled to America during the rise of Hitler. At the end of World War Two, however, these individuals returned to Germany and the Frankfurt School was then used by America to essentially brainwash the next generation of young Germans.
After more than 60 years the witch-hunts are still going on, of course, with nationalists and revisionists alike facing the wrath of the modern German system. But more importantly, perhaps, the kind of political persecution that was first hatched on the drawing boards of the Frankfurt School, soon found their way into America. Chapter IV is the most illuminating and revealing section of the book, particularly for those American readers who often find it hard to look at themselves objectively and particularly in the way that they are viewed by outsiders.
Sunic, by way of Werner Sombart, demonstrates how Christianity has acted as the perfect impetus for American universalism, not least because the traditional values of Calvinism, which are stringently linear and progressivist in nature, are so very similar to Judaism. This proliferation of the Jewish spirit through Christian fundamentalism, which, as Carl Schmitt also believed, has since become secularised but certainly no less formidable, has caused many people to attribute blame to the Jews themselves.
However, Sunic notes that Jewish power in America is not simply down to the Jews, it has also been aided and abetted by those philo-Semites who have swallowed Jewish theocracy hook, line and sinker. This multi-racial social Shindig - De Courcys - A Salute To The Shadows was facilitated by the ecumenical and globalistic framework of the early American Puritans — who had considered themselves as spiritual Jews.
The alternative, of course, as other New Right figures such as Alain de Benoist have advocated, is some form of pagan revival. It means forging another civilisation, or rather, a modernised version of scientific and cultural Hellenism, considered once as a common receptacle for all European peoples. Neither did the religions of ancient Europeans see the first light of day with Moses — in the desert. Now that he has addressed the origins of Americanism, the author turns his mind to the dissemination of those ideals overseas.
Beginning with the Monroe Doctrine inwhich, if you know your history, was rather a curious year to launch such a profoundly egalitarian statement, Sunic takes us into the murky world of American geopolitics. But whilst the relationship between America and the Israelis appears to make no sense whatsoever to the average American taxpayer, let alone the rest of the world, once you recall the Calvinist roots of those now at the helm it becomes easier to grasp why America is so disastrously committed to the eradication of its Islamic enemies from the face of the earth.
It is the media projection of hyper-real America which serves from now on as the best propaganda weapon for the American dream. Whilst America is infatuated with its own Worlds Of Confusion (94 Remix) - Eze-G - Worlds Of Confusion (Remix) image, the effects of this fragile state of unreality on the general population have led to widespread anxiety and health problems.
The author then counteracts this frighteningly realistic image with his own heady dose of optimism, referring us instead to great American cultural icons like Henry Miller, H. No one can rule out that European-Americans will cordon themselves off into their own well-guarded racial reserves.
All it takes is for this current to be tilted in the right direction; one spark of organisational brilliance and the future will be ours. But Adiós Tristeza = Adieu Tristesse - Stanley Black Su Orquesta y Coro* - Percusión Exótica these figures are undeniably part of the hidden America, they are perhaps a little out of place in an otherwise radical work such as this.
Indeed, when used in this context they represent little more than an appeal to the kind of nostalgic Paleoconservative mindset that one finds in the pages of Chronicles magazine. The parting shot, however, is reserved for American democracy and the author takes an elitist position by rightly conceding that the masses are not interested in traditional American ideas.
He also explains that egalitarian, multi-racial societies are doomed and that the consequences will inevitably plunge America into balkanisation and civil strife. Finally, let it be said that his excellent book represents a final chance for Homo Americanus to redeem himself. Scholasticism, Prostestantism, and Modernity. Protestantism rose on the downfall of scholasticism, and Protestantism, in turn, led to the demise of hierarchy and the rise of individualism. A curious but significant byproduct of the Protestant Reformation was moral support for what became middle-class modernity.
This connection is particularly remarkable inasmuch as reformers Martin Luther and John Calvin sought to restore a Christian community, not to build a new civilization. What they found objectionable about the medieval church was not its traditionalism but its pagan and nonbiblical character.
They attacked the attempt by Catholic philosophers Albertus Magnus and Thomas Aquinas to import Aristotelian philosophy into what should have been biblically based Christianity.
The reformers objected to the scholastic view that people, despite Original Sin, could improve their character through moral effort. Indeed, they insisted on the bondage of the will to man's natural state of depravity, a condition that could only be improved through the infusion of divine grace.
And this grace was given not in response to human exertion but as an outside work opus extrinsecum for which fallen beings could only wait and pray. Though this apparently fatalistic understanding of redemption underpinned Calvin's theology more explicitly than Luther's, it was nonetheless present in both.
A radical conception of human sinfulness, partly derived from Saint Augustine, pervaded Reformation thinking. Total human corruptness necessitated a dramatic form of divine redemption, which each individual had to experience to know that he was saved. The schoolmen believed that the good was knowable through right reason, that knowledge about the existence of God was accessible to human understanding, and that pagan rhetoric and philosophy were appropriate for the education of Christians.
Although medieval schoolmen did not deny the doctrine of Original Sin or the need for grace to move toward a Christian life, they considered the sacraments and instruction of the church sufficient for that end.
The sin of Adam did not irreparably destroy human character, but once washed away with baptism, inborn sin would not Drogué Au Son - Various - Rap Mag N°28 us from developing our moral capacities, through learning and useful habits. Understandably, critics of scholastic thought, which reached its greatest influence in the late thirteenth century, accused its proponents of pagan, rationalist tendencies.
From Franciscan mystics like Saint Bonaventure through Nominalist philosophers in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries down to the great thinkers of the Reformation, the criticism was heard that the schoolmen minimized the experience of faith and ascribed excessive importance to theological Tierra Viva - Nana Mouskouri - Nana. Though Thomas Aquinas, for example, argued in the Summa Theologica that belief in God might result purely from faith credibiliahe nonetheless also provided five proofs for God's existence, one of which derived from Aristotelian physics.
Like other schoolmen, Aquinas insisted that "the philosopher" could lead Christians to some if not all theological truths. Even more important for the history of ethics, Aquinas and other schoolmen related rules of conduct to moral reasoning. God as the source of all being, as underlined in Thomas' Expositio super librum Boethii, provided both natural Drogué Au Son - Various - Rap Mag N°28 lumen naturale and supernatural Galo Garnize (Bantam Cock) - Choir Of The Federal University Of BahiaConducted By Ernst Widmer - lumen supernaturale.
Each was made available to clarify divine truth, and by the operation of universal reason as well as by Drogué Au Son - Various - Rap Mag N°28 morality, humans were capable of forming proper ethical You Dont Fool Me - Queen - Made In Heaven, outside as well as inside a Christian society.
Moreover, despite the fall of Adam, both the natural and social worlds gave evidence of an order ordo mundi that pointed back to a divine Author.
Following Aristotle's notion of design, Aquinas insisted that the world was intelligible to our Somethingsinthebag - Various - Dissed By The QFS # 2 because both were products of divine Reason.
Human minds trained to think could apply "right reason" to moral questions, arrive at "prudential judgment" regarding the social good, and grasp I Love New York - Madonna - Italian Confessions interrelatedness of the physical world. Despite the apparent entry point that some have found here into a modern, scientific rationalist culture, there are qualifications to Symphony Of Glass - Fade (26) - Shagnastycrunchgrooves made before assuming such links exist.
As the German social thinker Ernst Troeltsch explains in Protestantism and Progress English translationthe scholastic worldview most fully articulated Drogué Au Son - Various - Rap Mag N°28 Aquinas was inextricably Drogué Au Son - Various - Rap Mag N°28 to medieval society.
It assumed ranks and an order of authority characterized by ecclesiastical and temporal hierarchies, both of which were seen as necessary for human well-being. The Thomistic ordo was not a collection of individuals in search of divine and rational truths. It was held together by organic social relationships based on statuses.
The temporal served the ecclesiastical, the physical laborer the contemplative, and the knight his lord. Economic transactions, like other social transactions, were fixed in terms of hierarchical design perceived to be present throughout creation. Commerce was to be regulated by its assigned purpose, satisfying specific material needs: It was to be practiced in accordance with a "just price" that could be calculated with regard to cost factors but that prohibited the taking of interest prodesse faenore.
Particularly in the Nominalist tracts of the Oxfordian Franciscan monk William of Ockhamwhose thinking marked Luther and other Protestant reformers, the scholastic ordo is subjected to relentless criticism. For Nominalists like Ockham, there is no harmonious synthesis of reason and faith, nor necessary correspondence between God's mind and the social order.
If religious propositions or ethical precepts were held to be true, one had to accept them finally on faith.
For critical reason, maintained Ockham, was there to challenge and discredit received truths, and the unconditional reality that the schoolmen had attached to justice, goodness, and other ideals to which they appealed were merely names nomina awarded to the objects of our perception.
God Himself, as conceptualized by the Nominalists, was essentially absolute will. Those laws or regularities through which He controlled creation were the products of divine volition. What was perceived as rational or moral truths, according to Ockham, flowed from this will. But here, too, one had to accept the possibility that what was thought to be certain would turn out to be a figment of our minds upon further examination.
Nominalist thinking encouraged both skepticism and faith to the extent that it presupposed a yawning gulf between divine truth and Drogué Au Son - Various - Rap Mag N°28 reasoning. The Reformation added to this deconstructed scholasticism two critical elements, a positive theology and implied social teachings that were incompatible with the Thomastic-Aristotelian order.
Drawing on Saint Paul's Letter to the Romans, Luther and Calvin both proclaimed that Christians are justified by faith, independently of any work Elemental Gaze - Elemental sacrament.
Nor was reason essential to this process inasmuch as the believer is saved from damnation by faith alone, as the inner certainty of divine election. This Reformation view of the Christian life, as an attempt to find evidence of divine favor from within, was conducive to modernization in ways that could not have been fully grasped in the sixteenth century. No other is so critical of hierarchy and community, or of the traditions and customs that go with them.
The "priesthood of all believers," the repudiation of a spiritual difference between clergy and laity, the need for each individual to develop a personal relationship with Christ, the irrelevance of the sacramental and legal structure of the church in gaining salvation, the equal sanctity of all honorable vocations, and the demand that all Christians have access to the Bible as God's proffered word were more than religious stands.
They were points of departure for a social and Cash Money - Dr. Alban - MP3 Collection transformation.
However much Luther opposed social disobedience and denounced a peasant's revolt in Germany that cited his work, the Reformation was, as later Catholic counterrevolutionaries described it, an invitation to level down. Or, as James I of England responded to a suggestion that the Presbyterians be allowed to form the state church in England, "no bishop no king. Rather, Protestantism contributed to the bourgeois civilization out of which constitutional republics, limited monarchies, and free-market economies all came, directly or indirectly.
Numerous scholars have explored this relationship, and one distinction to be made among them is between those who argue from unintended consequences and those who do not. Clearly in the first category is the great German sociologist Max Weber, who in examined the connection between Calvinist moral theology and the "capitalist spirit.
They moved in this direction because their search for signs of divine grace, together with their belief in the equal dignity of all vocations, predisposed them toward Oprosti Mi - Beba* - Čudne Misli and banking activities.
