... on Chesterton and Nietzsche

G.K. Chesterton The Apostle of Common Sense - God is Dead: Chesterton vs. Nietzsche

19:23 "Germany" is as dubious a term as "America".

By America, do you mean US exclusively, or do you mean everything between Alaska and Newfoundland and Tierre de Fuego?

Germany is as ambiguous.

Do you mean the German state of Prussia, formerly North German League (which at Königgrätz fought AGAINST what is now the flag of West Germany or after 1990 Germany, either way Federal Republic)?

Or do you mean that + Austria + Liechtenstein + German parts of Switzerland + again French territories like Alsatia and Lotharingia + Luxemburg + one corner of Belgium + certain villages in Romania and other Balkanic countries + certain territories of Czechia and Poland?

Note, if "Germany" in the Prussian sense adopted one Nietzschean philosophy (though not as extreme as Marxism, Psychiatry, certain attitudes within Capitalism, esp. towards the homeless), this is not the case for Germany in the broader sense.

Dollfuss was as sickly of constitution as ever Nietzsche, but he remained sane for the same reason that the similarly cold plagued and nose blowing Atterbom remained sane. By assuming his weakness. He took Mussolini's invitations to healthy baths. And Mussolini requited the friendship by defending Austria in 1936 against Hitler.

Do read up on Dollfuss' successor Kurt von Schuschnigg in his own books "Dreimal Österreich" and "Ein Requiem in Rot-Weiss-Rot", s'il vous plaît, bitte, please!

20:25 "worst and most horrible war in history"?

In history up to then, perhaps.

There is another war coming up. It ends in what is called "battle of Harmageddon", not sure if that is where the battle is held or whether that is just where Antichrist's troops muster. I have heard the latter and that the actual battle would be closer to Mount of Olives, which makes sense if Jesus is returning there.

But perhaps you are saying that as soon as I turn on the video again.

Either way, exulting brutality was done by Lenin too.

Recall the eggs and omelette's quote?

Sounds as if some Nephelim of cannibal persuasion was resurrected from Mahabharata wars in pre-Flood times ...

20:33 Did WW-II really begin at the Polish border, 1 Sept 1939?

Or had Stalin started it against Ukraine a few months before that?

Or was it the major part in a war starting 1936, namely 13 July 1936, when Calvo Sotelo was assassinated by the Reds?

Because Our Lady seems to have predicted a worse war than WW-I was beginning before the death of Pope Pius XI. And 1 Sept. 1939 is after that date. Prediction given at Fatima no Portugal, 1917, 100 years ago in a few months from now.

21:03 I have seen "transvaluation of values" in a certainly not anti-Jewish context as the student party "Kulturradikalerna" at Lund University.

They are Marxists.

Speaking of murdered Jews, why not mention murdering Jews at Ukraine conflict and the Jewish International Troops in the Spanish Conflict? In a Paris library (there are about 24 normal + some special) with some Judaica, they had an exhibition where the recruitment of Jews to International Volunteers was hailed as Jewish heroism!


Hitler and Chesterton both started their carreers after school as painters.

Would you agree when Chesterton changed to writer he was getting a competence he deserved, but when Hitler changed to politician he had the immense misfortune to be elevated to his "level of incompetence" (as one of the Murphy laws put it)?

I mean, Hitler's paintings of architecture are remarkably similar to the very pretty architecture in the background of Disney movies?

24:16 [Chesterton's dictum on the only religion in which God Himself is a rebel] Actually not quite.

Zeus was a rebel - and a rebel against a rebel - before Christ got the crucifixion usually reserved to rebels.

Now, in Greek mythology, the original rebel does seem to be Satanic. Rebelling against his father, but tyrannising his children by cannibalism ... the Nine Muses sang hymns to all Olympian gods, starting with Zeus, and ending with one to Kronos of the crooked thoughts (Kronos Ankylometes).

Are you reminded of a certain generation which C. S. Lewis foresaw in his The Abolition of Man (which is essentially about Nietzsche's transvaluation of all values, but doesn't mention him)? The most disconnected and liberated from their fathers, the most ruthlessly impressing their own new values on their children?


I am not quite sure if it is true that Christ confessed He was forsaken of God. He was quoting a Psalm in which King David had this as a first impression.

He could have had more than one reason to quote this psalm.

  • 1) It had foretold his passion. They have numbered my bones. And the Centurion did number correctly the ribs to the two between which his Lance could touch the Holy Heart like the staff of Moses had touched water in the desert.

  • 2) It had foretold the Eucharist. And the Church:

    [26] With thee is my praise in a great church: I will pay my vows in the sight of them that fear him. [27] The poor shall eat and shall be filled: and they shall praise the Lord that seek him: their hearts shall live for ever and ever. [28] All the ends of the earth shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord: And all the kindreds of the Gentiles shall adore in his sight. [29] For the kingdom is the Lord' s; and he shall have dominion over the nations. [30] All the fat ones of the earth have eaten and have adored: all they that go down to the earth shall fall before him.

    [31] And to him my soul shall live: and my seed shall serve him. [32] There shall be declared to the Lord a generation to come: and the heavens shall shew forth his justice to a people that shall be born, which the Lord hath made.

  • 3) He declared that He had been serving God since before He was born, unlike those born with original sin.

    This verse does not necessarily mean King David was born without original sin, but it means by excellence that Christ was:

    [10] For thou art he that hast drawn me out of the womb: my hope from the breasts of my mother.

    [11] I was cast upon thee from the womb. From my mother' s womb thou art my God, [12] Depart not from me.

  • 4) He was answering the Bulls of Bashan. Now, one prophet called Samaria Cows of Bashan.

    King David has prophecied about the Bulls of Bashan, about a sect as machist or male chauvinist as Samarians are overly feminist.

    [8] All they that saw me have laughed me to scorn: they have spoken with the lips, and wagged the head. [9] He hoped in the Lord, let him deliver him: let him save him, seeing he delighteth in him. ... For tribulation is very near: for there is none to help me. [13] Many calves have surrounded me: fat bulls have besieged me. [14] They have opened their mouths against me, as a lion ravening and roaring.

    Pharisees foretold both as New Samaria and yet in some sense still Lion of Judah.

  • 5) But perhaps most importantly, conforting Her on whose lap He had learned the Psalm in the First place and in whom He had served God from Day 1, from a March 25, like the March 25 on which He cited it.

27:31 Nietzsche seems to have said also:

"If I should have a God, I want one who knows how to dance"

Have you seen the Icons of God in His Human Soul trampling on the Gates of Hell? It looks as if he were performing a Cosack Dance.

One Frenchie cited him (Onfray's his name), and I showed that icon.

An icon which fully justifies :

The Dubliners ~ Lord of the Dance
Alec John

Today's the day on which He was starting a nine months often precisely dance in the womb or Our Lady.

Unless certain Palaeohimerites were to be more right on calendar and I am 13 days too early.
