Forzados a ser Libres:
El caso del Paternalismo

Rousseau649 words

English original here

Paternalismo significa tratar a la gente como niños. Los niños carecen de madurez y sabiduría para tomar sus propias decisiones. Por lo tanto necesitan padres – o gente que ejerza el rol paternal – que les diga que hacer y, en ocasiones, forzarlos a hacerlo.

La mayoría de la gente no tiene problema con el paternalismo cuando trata con niños, tanto como con retardados, seniles o insanos. Read more …

Forced to be Free:
The Case for Paternalism

Rousseau

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

626 words

Spanish translation here

Paternalism means treating people like children. Children lack the maturity and wisdom to make their own decisions. Thus they need parents — or people playing the paternal role — to tell them what to do and, on occasion, to force them to do it.

Most people have no problem with paternalism when dealing with actual children, as well as the retarded, the senile, and the insane. Read more …

5,017 words

lightincavePart 2 of 2

Author’s Note:

The following text is based on a transcript by V. S. of a lecture on Plato’s Republic. As usual, I have edited his transcript to remove excessive wordiness and corrected a couple of small mistakes.

Romanticism & Classicism

hulme2(1)7,106 words

I want to maintain that after a hundred years of romanticism, we are in for a classical revival, and that the particular weapon of this new classical spirit, when it works in verse, will be fancy.[1] And in this I imply the superiority of fancy—not superior generally or absolutely, for that would be obvious nonsense, but superior in the sense that we use the word good in empirical ethics—good for something, superior for something.

T. S. Eliot, Part 1

Wyndham Lewis, Portrait of T. S. Eliot, 1938

5,352 words

Part 1 of 2

World War I brought to a climax a cultural crisis in Western Civilization that had been proceeding for centuries, when, in the Spenglerian sense, Money overwhelmed Tradition,[1] or, to resort even to Karl Marx, the bourgeoisie supplanted the aristocracy.[2] Industrialization accentuated the process of commercialization, with its concomitant urbanization and the disruption of organic bonds and social cohesion, which has thrown societies into a state of perpetual flux, with culture reflecting that condition.

Ludwig Fahrenkrog, “The Holy Fire”

1,311 words

Part 2 of 2

Translated by Greg Johnson

The Paganism of Hamsun and Lawrence
