      The historical mission of our time is to arrange a new culture of humanity, one that will replace the previous ruling system.

  5. Mark Rothko, Abstract Expressionism and the Decline of Western Art, Part 3

    Abstract Expressionism and the Culture of Critique Abstract Expressionism was disproportionately a Jewish cultural phenomenon. It was a movement populated by legions of Jewish artists, intellectuals and critics. Prominent non-Jewish artists within the movement like Jackson Pollock and Robert Motherwell married Jewish women (Lee Krasner and Helen Frankenthaler). Willem de Kooning defied the trend, although […]

  6. Roger Scruton on Beauty

    A reader, Alan, pointed out that I did not call attention to this passage from Scruton: There is a liturgy of denunciation here that is repeated all across Europe by a ruling elite that trembles in the face of ordinary loyalties.

  7. Navigating Hollywood: Conservatives and Christians Need Not Apply

    From time to time I get letters from students who say they are on page with ideas like mine and want to pursue  a career in the academic world. I always tell them they have to be a secret agent, not only as a grad student but at least until they get tenure. And if […]

  8. Spitting Mad Jews and Angry Artists: Part 2

  9. The Roman Polanski Case: Once Again, It’s Hollywood vs. America

    Over 30 years ago, director Roman Polanski raped a 13-year-old girl. The details aren’t pretty. According to the girl’s Grand Jury Testimony, Polanski plied her with enough alcohol and Quaaludes to make her dizzy and disoriented. He then had oral copulation with her, followed by sexual intercourse, and ending with sodomy because he did not want […]

  10. The Plot Against Art, Part 2

    I hate to tell you this, but if you like modern art there has to be something radically wrong with you. To feel hostile towards it is as natural as being repelled by incest. Modern art is out to corrupt you. If it doesn’t do this, it will have failed to achieve the primary purpose […]

  11. Ultra-Orthodox Jewish Ethics: Gaming the System

    At TOO we have had several articles on the culture of corruption that pervades many traditional Jewish communities.

  12. The Fifth Column

    How must it feel to pimp for a slovenly whore, doped and ravaged and destroyed by her abductors, who was once the happiest, most innocent, most beautiful girl in town? He is Baselitz, a name tuberose, not only acoustically, with dirty connotations. He is Germany’s foremost Modern artist. He is one of those who accepted the […]
