Most of all, those of us who can remain calm in the face of the collapse of this latest (NB) biosphere probably will make the best choices out of the remorselessly FEW options now left.

For with any sort of REAL luck, the present “dominant species” on this world WILL be Continue Reading »

In the harsh light of any atrocity & “IF something like the following disappointingly enough feels as if it is pretty resigned, ‘powerless’ & reads as if ‘it is all I can do,’ then let it BE all & in ALL the worlds.”

[Mohammed Nezhmi, Fez, 1979 AD/1399 AH]

After witnessing enough material & bodily horror in the World “as it is,” then some in repudiation of misery may choose to quit eating meat, fish, dairy & so on; this in turn also may Continue Reading »

‘GOING, GOING…?’

An American Friend on MyBunghole comments about these new RAF bombing raids:

“Dragged into another failed enterprise.”

As an amateur historian of no small salience & power, and as a naqshbandiyya dervish 73rd in Al Muasisa [‘The Institute’ eg — editor], one objectively may only reply:

Too right. 

There are many signs of the halting of the Late Modern age of the Old Atlantic West, including the observable fact that from about 1980, the very APPEARANCE of things stopped Continue Reading »

Si monumentum requiris, circumspice

[pace Sir Christopher Wren]

scripsit Bodwyn Wook

Historian-emeritus John Lukacs, Hungarian-American (b 1924 in Budapest) & a devout Roman Catholic, considers that we are living at the beginning of the end altogether of three periods in human History, the end of the Christian aeon, the end of the Renaissance civilization of the past five hundred years & the end of the High & Late Modern age of constitution & the bureaucratic nation-state.

In the ebb & flow of the barbarisms that he perceives will characterize the next centuries, Lukacs adds that of course “there will always be Christians” & that the Christian religion WILL endure in small enclaves in the World. 

Anyone who further understands the transformative role especially of meditation & prayer in solitude will not necessarily be dismayed, however:

This is because in fact the Sufis contend that the groundwork is always laid for new cultural & moral developments during these Continue Reading »

The Discussion Today

The Discussion Today

“Where NOW, America?”

by B “Pat Buchanan” Wook

A Friend on MyFace posted the following to Us, yesterday:

“I want your opinion of this:
 
“Perhaps it’s time to cozy up to Iran. Turn our attention away from the fundamentalist Sunni mega royal family of Saudi Arabia, one of the most totalitarian corrupt countries in the world, to the Shia’a dominated Iran. While Iran is no Jeffersonian democracy, it’s citizens certainly have more personal and political freedoms then our Saudi ally. Iran even has several practicing Jews in their parliament. Furthermore, both our countries face a common enemy which is radical Sunni doctrine which is perpetuated by the Saudis. It seems our Congress is blinded by the current right wing government of Israel which all but demands regime change in Iran. Let’s be honest in our negotiation’s over the nuclear issue. We should apologize for participating in the overthrow of Iran’s elected government in the early 1950s and move to restore some semblance of peace with Iran. I know they back Assad in Syria, Hamas, and other unsavory types, but it’s an imperfect world.”

We replied:

Mr N, I think (NB) that the trend of the previous discussion by [three] respondents here shows that there is a very large body of the North American population either indifferent (that MAY be a specimen of “bad” citizenship, but might NOT be as well) to much of the overseas “excitment,” or else opposed to the clear point of seeing the absolute need for Continue Reading »

Many will have breathed a sigh of relief now that our seemingly dilatory President has ordered our military once again to do what it does best, namely to mount another series of Continue Reading »
