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 …

Sick Noir for the Holiday

It was never really wonderful.

1,319 words

A few years back—let us say, forty—some TV boffins decided there was a perfect and archetypal Christmas film that must be broadcast every Yuletide season. And that film was the disturbing and surreal It’s a Wonderful Life with James Stewart. A downer-fable about failure and suicide, it flopped resoundingly with critics and public alike when it came out in 1946. Director Frank Capra himself counted it among his least favorite efforts. Personally I’ve never met anyone who really likes the movie.  Read more …

Some Thoughts on Yule

StonehengeSunset3,344 words

Yule is the midwinter festival celebrated by my ancestors and by Germanic neo-pagans today. Midwinter is a time when much of nature seems to die or to depart. The trees are stripped of their leaves. The birds abandon us, flying off to warmer climes. Bears, badgers, chipmunks, and squirrels hibernate. Water freezes over. The earth is covered in ice and snow, so that nothing can grow. The air is so chilled that when we are out in it for too long, death becomes something tangible, and we rush inside.  Read more …

The Father of Modern Theology & a Prophet of German Nationalism, Part 2

Part 2 of 2. Part 1 here.

Schleiermacher’s Philosophy of Mind

According to Schleiermacher, the task of philosophy is the “immersion of the Spirit into the innermost depths of itself and of things in order to fathom the relations of their [spirit and nature] being-together.”[1] Schleiermacher’s philosophy, like German idealism in general, was very influenced by, and a reaction to, the critical transcendental philosophy of Immanuel Kant.

Myers-Briggs Personality Traits in Two Popular Christmas Movies

2,456 words

The following is an attempt to analyze two popular Christmas movies, A Christmas Story and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, using the Myers-Briggs personality traits. One can take the test at 16personalities.com and receive a four-letter acronym which represents parts of one’s personality.  For example, many Counter-Currents readers are reputed to have INTJ personalities, which means they possess Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Judging characteristics. The opposite of INTJ is ENFP, or Extroverted, Feeling, and Perceiving. These two are not the only possible types. In total, there are sixteen possible combinations of these traits, and thus sixteen possible personalities under the Myers-Briggs system.
