Architektura a morálka: Zkáza Grenfell Tower

1,397 slov

English original here

Fakta sice jsou důležitá, mnohem důležitější ale bývají příběhy. Fakta – izolovaná data – lze snadnou zapomenout, ale příběhy se shlukují do infrastruktury našeho světonázoru. Jejich prostřednictvím si utváříme tento světonázor, který následně ovlivňuje, jaké příběhy vyslechneme v jakési nekonečné smyčce zpětné vazby – a právě proto má kontrola nad narativem tak nenahraditelný význam.

Charles Manson:
From Scapegoat to Messiah

1,418 words

Charles Manson was a scapegoat for the sixties counter-culture and he became a false Messiah for the seventies, eighties, nineties, and naughties counter-cultures. His real meaning can only be discerned by understanding these two equally imaginary poles of social function that he was compelled to occupy during his decades of imprisonment. The fact that Manson himself was keenly aware of this process of projection and that he actively sought to manipulate it does not attest to evidence of demonic powers but neither does it attest to the machinations of a victimized magus.

Review of Venus & Her Thugs

1,619 words

J. A. Nicholl
Venus & Her Thugs: Fifteen Weird Tales
San Francisco: Counter-Currents, 2017

What is a weird tale? To keep the question manageable, it makes sense to think only about modern, literary tales. In that respect, then, the weird tale is a scion of the ghost story family. The modern, literary ghost story is widely acknowledged to have been created by M. R. James. James’ stories followed a formula of a cerebral, monastic academic discovering some sort of occult object, and subsequently being assaulted by a supernatural emanation connected to that object.

War for the Planet of the Apes

1,504 words

War for the Planet of the Apes is the third film of the rebooted series and one of the best. With its austere visual palette and dark tonal mood it could so easily have been a flawless masterpiece. Unfortunately, a couple of trivial missteps get in the way of its overall quality and undermine the film’s otherwise brutal solemnity.

War begins 15 years after the simian flu outbreak that wiped out much of the human species. Read more …

The Metaphysics of Death

4,440 words

“Only the dead can know what it means to be dead.”—Ananda Coomaraswamy[1]

Philip Larkin’s poem “Aubade” articulates his fear of death in chilling terms. It describes a man who hates his job and gets drunk every night. Then, before dawn, he wakes, and with the gathering light, he fixates on the certainty of his own death and what it will mean for him. Larkin is clear that it means complete cessation of the self, that there is no possibility of an afterlife, and that this absence of the self is the most terrifying thing in the world. Read more …

Architecture & Morality:
The Fall of Grenfell Tower

1,661 words

Czech version here

Facts are important, but stories are more important. Facts are isolated data that can easily be forgotten, but stories coalesce to form the infrastructure of our worldview. The stories that we learn inform our worldview and our worldview filters the stories that we hear in an ongoing feedback loop. This is why it’s so important to control the narrative.

When Grenfell Tower went up in flames on the morning of 14th June, the narrative practically wrote itself. Read more …

The Real Victims in Manchester – The White Working Class

Manchester residents observing a moment of silence on Thursday.

1,180 words

What does it mean to be a Mancunian? Perhaps it’s as simple as being a resident or former resident of Manchester. Or perhaps it’s characterized by a particular type of identity, one that is often embodied in the numerous musicians who have come from there in recent decades. Read more …
