Looks interesting.

Now has turned to....
I must buy this book:
The Uniqueness of Western Civilization - Ricardo Duchesne.

We must all support these thinkers. They are the last vestiges of quality tumbling towards decay.

We need more like them.

I'll have to track this down and read it. It looks absolutely brilliant.
One of my bugbears is how the leftist intelligentsia has re-written history and poured scorn on Western history; thus breeding generations of self-haters and self-doubters.

The best way to control the masses is to dictate historical interpretations and to define what is more and what is less important.

Know Thyself is about knowing your past, as it is in the past where the present is determined.
By slandering the past self-hatred is created.
By limiting the scope and dismissing the past, teaching to "live in the moment" is what dumbing-down is all about.

Animals live more in the moment...because they have no ability to remember beyond a certain point and they have no ability to project, imagine, beyond a certain point.

By detaching a human mind from his past, you erase his sense of self, his identity...and you make him vulnerable to whatever dominates in the immediate: it's a method of brain-washing.
This is how hedonism and materialism become the western, modern, world's standards for measuring self-worth.

Yeah, it's a real shame because there's generations of students being denied access to their heritage. It's no wonder that so many people are confused and depressed when you take away the very thing that gives them a sense of belonging.

I'd love to read these books. Ever since my post about Julian Jaynes I've been checking out some of the articles and titles Lyssa recommended afterward, and right now I'm reading Detienne and Vernant's 'Cunning Intelligence in Greek Culture and Society.' Yes, this is the stuff I've needed to read for a long time but in the context of egalitarian academic standards (so-called) there was no test for quality, no elitist community dedicated to giving merited punishment to merited dysfunction, and merited credit to merited quality.

Question: Why are only admins allowed to see so many of these links?

I'm glad you found some interesting stuff.
I am trying to read through many of these books. Lyssa provided me with PDF files of them.

The reason some of these sub-forums have restricted access is because of their, sometimes, controversial subject matter.
The herd goes crazy if it's well-being in threatened.

In the newly renamed Adyton only a few can enter and read. It offers a safe environment for opinions that might get some on trouble.
Besides, not everyone should have access to some information.

My guess is that it has something to do with linking to copyrighted works. Some legal thing. That is, unless this is now enforced site wide. I haven't checked other posts that have links in them. You could maybe try PMing Lyssa for the links if you're interested.

Here's one beautiful passage:

"As a man, you represent the highest ordering agent. Your capacity
to exercise authority is inherently attractive and fearful to all people.
When people genuinely acknowledge your authority, they will fear
you. Yet because this fear provides an orderly arrangement, they will
simultaneously become attracted to you. The end result is love."

I ended up getting a hold of The Uniqueness of Western Civilization by Ricardo Duchesne. Very good so far. His hypothesis is that Western advancements were made via an aristocratic restlessness in pursuit of prestige, heroism, and adventure.
It gets bogged down in the early chapters with dull comparisons of crop yields between England and China, but once it moves passed that it goes into a lot of the inventions in Europe and the particular characteristics of the Western mind behind them. It's heavily referenced and Duchesne goes through and debunks a whole heap of leftist interpretations of history.

I was taught nothing even close to this when I done my undergraduate. Nothing close whatsoever. Western history was reduced to racism, classism, imperialism, and defining itself through the 'other.'

The academy and the academics since the 1960s have so much to answer for.

He speaks about how Europeans and European history is not reinterpreted to do away with the defining character of Europe.

I remember sitting in a cultural studies lecture when the white, male lecturer attempted to pin the blame for all the worlds problems on the white man. It was obvious from his demeanor that he did not believe this, that he was simply going through the motions. what a pathetic figure he cut.

The original title for "Decline of the West" is actually more specific. ("Untergang des Abendlandes") "Abendland" means a culture/civilisation that appeared right after the Greek antique culture had declined. After that civilization had vanished 500 A.D..That is important to understand. The "Abendland" culture/civilisation drew and still draws on ancient Greece, but it's not the same. So basically "Abendland" doesn't just signify an area/space, like "the West" (Europe & N.America), but also a certain time period starting after 500 A.D.. I am not very far into the text yet, but it's very recommendable so far.
