REASSESSING OTTO DIX

Otto Dix was a German artist who is now celebrated as one of the great painters of the twentieth century, probably in no small part because he was put on the National Socialists' list of degenerate artists, as, to the unthinking postmodern Left, anything the National Socialists hated is automatically considered good. Equally though, the postmodern cultureless cartoon Nazis of today's corrupted Right consider him a degenerate artist also simply because his artworks were deemed Entartete Kunst by the NSDAP. The irony is that Dix's work is far more congruent with the concerns of the Right than those of the Left and so I thought it was about time to reassess the man and his oeuvre.

MJOLNIR AT THE MOVIES EPISODE IV AND YOUTUBE CHANNEL

I have now created a Youtube channel specifically for Neil Westwood and I's podcast Mjolnir at the Movies, which can be accessed by clicking HERE. I hope you will subscribe to the channel and share the content on social media etc. Episode 1 cannot be seen in some countries due to copyright infringement, having used music from the film Superman. I will therefore edit the video soon and swap John Williams' music, which we used for the introduction, for Neil's own composition. On Sunday, we will be recording our review of the latest Marvel superhero film Avengers: Infinity War. Stay tuned!

ANTONY BURGESS: A CLOCKWORK ORANGE AND THE STATE

The theme that always gets talked in A Clockwork Orange - particularly in the original novel - is that of free will. That is for the chattering Leftist academics who love to ejaculate over violence as an expression of free will - the violence of which they themselves are incapable and by which they are fascinated as voyeurs - but this for me has never been the interest in the novel, which I view as indulgent in a seedy kind of way. The real quality in the novel is in the observation of how the state uses thuggery to keep the masses in check, promoting reprobates to positions of power and authority, as we see when Dim, one of Alex's former droogs and another rival gang leader become policemen and give Alex a good beating while he is helpless after the fictional yet plausible psychological conditioning known as the Ludovico Technique.

FREE SPEECH AT TITTMONING

In this video, we are in the walled mediaeval town and castle of Tittmoning to discuss the subject of freedom of speech, especially in light of Mark Meechan alias Count Dankula's recent guilty verdict for the Orwelliam crime of 'hatespeech'. What has it to do with this location?
