Australian Artists of the Right
Norman Lindsay, Part II

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1)

Homosexuality not conducive to creativity

Norman rejected the faddish view that homosexuality is associated with the creative individual. He regarded homosexuality as “destructive” to the creative impulse, which is based on unisexuality. He stated that the male homosexual is dominated by a split of either all-male or all-female:

Australian Artists of the Right
Norman Lindsay, Part I

Norman Lindsay

6,784 words

Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)

Norman Alfred Williams Lindsay (1879-1969) was the brother of Lionel Lindsay, recently profiled at Counter-Currents. Like his brother, Norman excelled in a variety of artistic media.

Navidad, la belleza de la vida

431 words

Traducción por Francisco Albanese; English version here

Nos acercamos a la Navidad (otro nombre para el solsticio de invierno). Asociada al árbol de hojas perennes, la Navidad ha sido celebrada en los países europeos desde tiempos inmemoriales como la gran fiesta que presagia el renacimiento de la naturaleza y la vida después del reposo del invierno. Uno no puede dejar de pensar que Europa, también, algún día emergerá de su actual Dormición, incluso si es más larga que el ciclo de la naturaleza.  Read more …

Ayn Rand & Ortega y Gasset

6,280 wordsJose_Ortega_y_Gasset

Editor’s Note:

This essay was written in 2000 and published online at a long-defunct website. It is really a sketch of a more detailed research project that somebody else might wish to carry out. Even as such, I think it deserves a new lease on life. I do not regret a single hour spent reading Ortega.

On the Sublime & the Numinous

Caspar_David_Friedrich_0714,193 words

The words “sublime” and “numinous” have shifted in meaning somewhat over recent years. The word “sublime,” I presume, would now generally be interpreted to mean something of particularly great beauty, or an action particularly well executed. It would not be limited to a narrow usage but could be applied to any thing or action of particular excellence, perhaps with a slightly pretentious connotation of elegance.  Read more …

Kraft durch Freude

Fidus, „Gebet an die Sonne“, 1913

Fidus, „Gebet an die Sonne“, 1913

2,320 words

Übersetzt von Deep Roots

English original here

Als ich jünger war, hatte ich, wenn ich niedergeschlagen war, immer spontane kleine Erlebnisse, die mich sofort aufbauten. Ich hörte ein Lied im Radio. Ich schaute über ein Feld, als plötzlich die Sonne hinter den Wolken hervorkam. Ich spähte über jemandes Zaun und sah eine Rose blühen. In diesen Momenten hatte ich eine Erfahrung, die schwer in Worte zu fassen ist. Der Grund dafür ist teilweise, daß die Erfahrung überhaupt nicht aus Worten bestand, die mir durch den Kopf gingen.

Strength Through Joy

Fidus, "Prayer to the Sun," 1913

Fidus, “Prayer to the Sun,” 1913

2,327 words

German translation here

When I was younger and things were getting me down, I used to have spontaneous little epiphanies that would instantly lift me up. I would hear a song on the radio. I would look across a field when suddenly the sun emerged from behind the clouds. I would peer over someone’s fence and see a rose blooming. In these moments, I had an experience difficult to put into words. Read more …

The Yogi & the Commissar

722 words

Translated by M. P.

Arthur Koestler, the author of Le zéro et l’infini (in English, Darkness at Noon), once played an important role in the Spanish Civil War as an agent of the Comintern. Through his writings, he set the tone of an anti-Francoist propaganda that has endured. Later, his deceptions made him an acute critic of Stalinism. Read more …
