"Snakes know heart"
STATEMENT OF DISASSOCIATION WITH WIKIPEDIA:

To all ABOL users

Recently it has come to the attention of the Librarian that Wikipedia, a resource that has been cited repeatedly by the Librarian, is not only of questionable reliability, particularly with respect to its biographical reports of current figures, but also that it appears to be completely untrue to its stated mission of compiling knowledge in a true "open-source" environment. In fact, recent, reliable reportage indicates that the Wikipedia system is entirely controlled by a cadre of young men with axes to grind and a misogynistic game plan for shaping the Internet public's view of current events. Accordingly, the Library will no longer cite Wikipedia as a resource, and cautions all users with respect to any statements attributed to Wikipedia found in the Library, that such material should be viewed with suspicion, although not necessarily incorrect or unreliable. The Library will begin a process of purging Wikipedia references; however, like many others, the Library has made such extensive use of Wikipedia that this process will be an extended one. Library users are invited to email the librarian with any specific information regarding Wikipedia references found in the Library.

AFTER STRANGE GODS: A PRIMER OF MODERN HERESY

by T.S. Eliot

Das Chaos in der 'Literatur,' die mit vagen Grenzen zwar, aber immer noch deutlicher ein Gebiet für sich ist; sie, die in gesunden Zeiten ein relativ reiner, gef alliger Spiegel aller herschenden Dinge und Undinge ist, in kranken, chaotischen ein selber trüber all der trüben Dinge und Ideen, die es gibt, ist zur cloaca maxima geworden. Jegliche Unordnung im Humanen, im Menschen selber -- ich sprach von dem dreifachen Gesichtspunkt, unter dem sie betrachtet werden kann, dem Primat der Lust, dem Primat der Sentimentalität, dem Primat der technischen Intelligenz -- an Stelle der einzig wahren hierarchischen Ordnung, des Primates des Geistes und des Spiritualen -- jegliche Unordnung findet ihr relariv klares oder meist selber noch neuerhch verzerrtes Bild in der Literatur dieser Tage.
-- THEODOR HAECKER: Was ist der Mensch? p. 65.

Men without chests: a Dystopian future

Lewis criticizes modern attempts to debunk "natural" values (such as those that would deny objective value to the waterfall) on rational grounds. He says that there is a set of objective values that have been shared, with minor differences, by every culture "...the traditional moralities of East and West, the Christian, the Pagan, and the Jew...". Lewis calls this the Tao (which closely resembles Confucian and Taoist usage).[a] Without the Tao, no value judgments can be made at all, and modern attempts to do away with some parts of traditional morality for some "rational" reason always proceed by arbitrarily selecting one part of the Tao and using it as grounds to debunk the others.

The final chapter describes the ultimate consequences of this debunking: a distant future in which the values and morals of the majority are controlled by a small group who rule by a "perfect" understanding of psychology, and who in turn, being able to "see through" any system of morality that might induce them to act in a certain way, are ruled only by their own unreflected whims. In surrendering rational reflection on their own motivations, the controllers will no longer be recognizably human, the controlled will be robot-like, and the Abolition of Man will have been completed.

An appendix to "The Abolition of Man" lists a number of basic values that Lewis saw as parts of the Tao, supported by quotations from different cultures.

A fictional treatment of the dystopian project to carry out the Abolition of Man is a theme of Lewis's novel That Hideous Strength.

Passages from The Abolition of Man are included in William Bennet's The Book of Virtues which could be said to be a compilation of examples of Lewis's "Tao" system of values or natural law.

“It seems as though the Germans had chosen madmen, men who quite simply went mad, and consecrated them, raised men like Nietzsche and Holderlin to the level of prophets, heroes, saints, and wise men, and made idols of them,” he wrote in 1943. . . .

Like T.S. Eliot and C.S. Lewis across the English Channel, and Jacques Maritain in America, Haecker hoped and prayed for German defeat during those terrible years 1939-1945, and, also like Eliot, Lewis, and Maritain, he believed the profound modern confusion—“ the dismemberment and disintegration of the modern person” (1942 entry)—had epistemological, philosophical roots.


meditated on how it had become possible that Western civilization, for 150 years increasingly confident about its progressive, even utopian, future in so many fields of activity, from the French “Enlightenment” of the 18th century down to August 1914, had collapsed into the nightmarish cauldron of history through which they were living in the period 1914-1945. Both men came to believe that the roots of the satanic modern developments of their time were ultimately epistemological–and not found in the apparently primitive, superstitious, poor parts of the world that the Western nations had increasingly colonized, dominated, and exploited in the 18th and 19th centuries; these satanic modern developments were inventions of Western “civilization” itself, radiating out from its historic centers of high culture–France, Germany, Italy, England.

In his secretly-written “journal in the night,” Haecker observed, with increasing gloom, that the Germany whose public-education system, universities, scientific research, industry, and technological accomplishments had after 1870 increasingly become the envy and model of the “developed” world, and the destination for foreign students, had atavistically resurrected in modern garb the most immoral kinds of consciousness, of ethnocentrism and national egotism, apparently now rationally warranted by Darwinian “racial science.” The “race” that had produced Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Wagner, also produced the modern intellectual tradition that had for 175 years grown into the most elaborate and prestigious forms of modern philosophy, from Kant, through Hegel and Marx and Nietzsche, to Freud and Heidegger. No more imposing speculative, systematic, intellectual structure had—or has—ever been created in the history of the world.

"You don't have to do that Jack"

"Doug, somebody has to it." I say but I know he don't hear me cause I say it in a normal voice, He is deaf as a post, which is a big part of her problem with him. I know what he is thinking when he tells me I don't have to take out the trash. He means his nigger will do it. Did I say nigger? I meant to say his wife will do it.

He is macho man from taco land

the bitch from baltimore and the bear from Bexar county

I should know better than to criticize a marriage
he needs the exercise. I don't know what I would do without him,
my baby sister needs a man, being the woman that she is
and I am grateful to him for being that man

am I still pursuing women? I hope not, I forgot what to do with them?

ah my sister my self
crazy mike's daughter

women's moody pursuits
I used to worry about her mood swings
now I try not to swing with her.

She needs her space but she also needs a husband.

A trade-off,
she had to make
I feel like a fortunate son
I am only her brother
but I Am a Rock

For the bear
a hillbilly Texan who married my baby sister
poor boy
I would get down on my knees and pray for him if I thought it could get him back up on his feet again
I need a miracle, I want to write a happy ever after romance for my sister and the bear

Watching this video I see his face among the people in it.

"Maybe she had a mastectomy?" Baby sister asks me.

I had not thought of that when I was thinking about that red sweater she was wearing when I saw my true love at her sweet sixteen party— and somewhere in some subterranean area of my brain that was way down and repressed from consciousness I was unbuttoning all buttons on that sweater

there was a time when me and baby sister could talk about everything, but I was unaware of her anger at what I had said. I thank G d she has a husband, the good old bear. I remember the time when he hit me upside the head with his fist. He did not ring my gong, but it hurt like hell.

Baby sister was about eight months with his baby in her womb and he was protecting them from my insanity.
