Pulp Fiction Proves That it’s Impossible to Separate an Artwork From its Sponser

Pulp Fiction Proves That it’s Impossible to Separate an Artwork From its Sponser

Pulp Fiction will celebrate its 25-year anniversary next year (it was released in 1994). When it came out, everybody applauded the picture as a work of art. The critics told us that they were lucky to witness the movie, fortunate to be alive in that time and place.

However, the Major quickly identified a demonic force at work in Pulp Fiction. I subconsciously knew that a Satanic person was behind the picture, and that his goal was the spiritual destruction of America. As it turns out, I was right!

Let me illustrate with pictures:

1.) Harvey Weinstein produced (sponsored) Pulp Fiction.

Harvey-Weinstein

2.) He “green-lighted” this disturbing scene: sexual torture and kidnapping.

3.) And he gave a thumb’s-up for this scene as well: mixing violence with humor.

Of course, he got a fellow sadist to do the heavy lifting: i.e. Quentin Tarantino. Let’s be honest: perhaps the only person that’s more tortured than Harvey Weinstein is Quentin Tarantino. Everything from that traitor is about violence, torture and sadism. And he mixes in some clever dialog to fool the lemmings in the crowd. Meanwhile, the seditious “critic” applauds the effort, silently grinning as our cultural traditions are flushed into the toilets of degeneracy.

Has the Weinstein/Tarantino connection ever made something that inspires humanity? Can they capture the passionate wellspring of spiritual love, or of childlike innocence? They know nothing about that! Everything they make is saturated with a degenarate vision of humanity…a vision that must inevitably spring from the consciousness of its creator.

What kind of men would find humor in torturing the innocent? What kind of degenerates find it acceptable to feed these images into the minds of a nation?

Summary: It’s impossible to separate a piece of art from the artist. When the mind of an individual is layered in filth, then that’s what he’ll produce. When his subconscious goal is cultural subterfuge, then that’s what his art will portray.

Only a noble mind can create a noble art! And only a lofty soul can make an artwork that speaks to humanity.

The Eye of the Employer is Often Worth More than the Hands of a Dozen Employees.

The Eye of the Employer is Often Worth More than the Hands of a Dozen Employees.

These are the wise words of PT Barnum in his book, The Art of Getting Money:

DEPEND UPON YOUR OWN PERSONAL EXERTIONS. The eye of the employer is often worth more than the hands of a dozen employees. In the nature of things, an agent cannot be so faithful to his employer as to himself.

Very true.

The wise employer is overlooking his business. He’s like a parent, observing his child on the playground. He watches with astute wisdom from afar. He takes note of every incident, every moment. And when his child is about to make a mistake, then the parent intercedes.

So it is with a business owner. The minute he goes away, his fortunes begin to fail. For the employee has no real stake in the affair. So while the boss is in Punta Cana, the employee is speaking with a flippancy to the customer. While the boss is in Dubai, the employee is leaving a mess on the counter top.

The eye of an employer is what rules over a business.

Why is the US Putting Its Embassy in Jerusalem?

Why is the US Putting Its Embassy in Jerusalem?

The United States will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. To the casual American, it’s a confusing decision. He thinks, “What’s going on over there?” or “Is Donald Trump crazy?” For what it’s worth, I have been to Jerusalem several times. So the Major will throw his two cents into the cup…

But first, a brief review of history is needed:

Jerusalem is the spiritual center of the Western world. It’s the home of Jesus, Mohammed and the Jews. And for thousands of years, the most powerful nation of its respective era was in control of the city. For example, when the Romans were in power, they ruled over Jerusalem. When the Turks gained control, they took over the city. And after World War 1, Jerusalem was given to the British – the most powerful European nation after the Great War.

roman is isreal
The most powerful nation in the world has always controlled Jerusalem: the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Turks, etc.

Long story shot…Jerusalem is a prize that’s given to the most powerful nation of the Western world. Think of it as a trophy, handed over to the winner of a particular century.

Therefore…

The United States has been the most powerful nation in the Western World since World War 2. Therefore, the “baton” of Jerusalem should go to them.

President Trump realizes this fact, and he is placing the United States into its rightful place in world history. He’s doing what he knows is right, despite the anger of his detractors. Note that there are two important things to remember about his decision, since many people will view the move as an “invasion” or a type of “foreign intervention”:

1.) Jerusalem is in Israel. However, the security of Israel is based on its alliance to the United States. If Israel was only supported by Haiti, for example, it would no longer exist. It would have been wiped out by its hostile neighbors. Therefore, Israel can only exist with the support of the United States.

usisreal
Without US support, Israel would be in serious danger from its neighbors.

2.) The Palestinians are, generally speaking, a barbaric culture. They don’t deserve to be given a trophy that is, historically, only awarded to the pinnacle civilization of an era. It would like giving the Nobel Prize to a misbehaving child. Liberals that continually empathize with Palestinians would, if given the chance, live as far away from them as possible.

.
Should the Palestinians be in control of the most important city in the world? That’s like asking if an El Salvadorean street gang should run Wall Street.

Summary: President Trump has an incredible pair of stones. Moreover, he has a solid understanding of history and the place of the United States in this unfolding drama.  More importantly, he refuses to let America live in fear of the Palestinians.

Hitler’s Bar Mitzvah

Hitler’s Bar Mitzvah

I’ve noticed that conspiracy theories are like a drug addiction. It starts with a little hit….a small injection on a Friday night. Perhaps an enthralling two hours of JFK by Oliver Stone. The mystery leaves you with a cerebellum rush! But then addiction deepens. You start overdosing on false flag theories, Reptillian shape shifters, and space aliens in Egypt.

From there, it’s a only a short jump to another outlandish theory – Hitler was Jewish. I’ve heard this bandied about on the internet. And the other night, a neighbor of mine repeated this idea. I just nodded (it’s best not to disagree with people you see on a regular basis). Save the arguments for things that matter!

I’ve actually read Mein Kampf. And from that book, it’s pretty clear that Hitler hated the Jewish people. He discusses  – in great detail – the reason behind his hatred. He provides a number of examples, anecdotes, etc. But nowhere in the book does he mention a Jewish uncle, a bar mitzvah, or a circumcision. His autobiography, not to mention the history of WW2, should be ample proof that he hated the Jews.

We could discuss the implications of the theory in detail. Was WW2 a globalist hoax? Was Hitler a planted stooge, put into power by the world banking industry? Or was the entire war a theatrical front…an event that never even existed? All of these questions are pointless, of course.

Conspiracy theories are rarely about the conspiracy; they’re mostly about the theorist and his quest for power.

The conspiracy theorist is trying to subvert your knowledge. He’s trying to convince you that your ideas cannot be trusted. To use a Manosphere term, he’s trying to gaslight you. By inserting false information about the past, he can make you question your own sanity. And when the confusion reigns, he can assert his power over you.

Now I’m not stubborn or pig-headed. I’m willing to learn new things, or to deepen my knowledge. But outlandish theories require proof! We need examples, anecdotes, or studies. We need empirical evidence.

Show me photos of Hitler’s Bar Mitvah and I’ll believe that he was Jewish.

On the Birth of Minor Styles (My Son)

Minor Styles arrived on Saturday. My wife was feeling dizzy so we went to the doctor to check it out. After a series of exams, we heard the news – the umbilical cord was choking Minor Styles. Long story short…time for an emergency C-Section.

The good news: I have a healthy baby boy. We pulled him out before any damage was done. He is 6.5 pounds and my kingdom has added a noble prince:

Welcome to the world…my prince.

 

On Robbie Robertson’s Version of “Broken Arrow”

On Robbie Robertson’s Version of “Broken Arrow”

Robbie Robertson is not a great singer, per se. Note how most of the vocal duties in The Band were carried by Levon Helm or Rick Danko. However, his voice is serviceable: it’s more of a conversational tone than an operatic one.

However, sometimes a song is just made for a singer…and “Broken Arrow” was made for Robertson.

Sure, Rod Stewart did a great version. And Stewart is the more professional singer with the amazing, raspy tone, etc. (We won’t talk about the Phil Lesh version). I love Phil, but he’s not a singer.

For my money, Robertson’s version is the best one – it has that extra “spark.” And he wrote it after all!

Often times, only the original composer can channel the emotional center of a song.

Richard Wagner on the Difference Between Greek and Roman Art

Richard Wagner on the Difference Between Greek and Roman Art

Richard Wagner has a fantastic essay called “Art and Revolution” (1849). The very idea is ahead of its time, for we now understand that modern art (as well as postmodern) were used to undermine the foundations of Western civilization. For the essay however, Wagner writes about the artwork of two great civilizations: Greek and Roman. He champions the Greek approach to art, while ridiculing the Roman expression.

He begins by praising the drama of ancient Greece:

“The deeds of gods and men, their sufferings, their delights…here they became actual and true. For all that in them moved and lived, as it moved and lived in the beholders, here found its perfected expressionsuch was the Grecian people in its highest truth and beauty.”

Well put. The complexity of Grecian drama is readily apparent. While other cultures were throwing mud at one another, the Greeks were performing elaborate plays: music, costumes, and brilliant prose! It’s little wonder that they are held in such high esteem.

GD
The brilliance of the Greek theater is held in high regard…and rightfully so!

He then mocks the debased entertainment of ancient Rome; in particular, the bloodthirsty events of the Colosseum:

“…they opened not to the gods and heroes of the ancient myths, nor to the free dancers and singers of the sacred choirs! No! Wild beasts, lions, panthers and elephants, must tear themselves to pieces in their amphitheatres, to glut the Roman eye; and gladiators, slaves trained up to the due pitch of strength and agility, must satiate the Roman ear with the hoarse gulp of death.”

Good points.

roman
Truth be told, this is not art. 

Wagner is forcing me rethink my opinions on history.  Truth be told, I’ve always had a preference for Roman culture over Greek. I love the stoic philosophies, the sordid plays, and the iconic architecture. Perhaps I’ve been influenced (in a subtle or direct way) by the historical fictions of Hollywood.

r and g
The Major has always had a preference for Roman culture…but Wagner is making me rethink my position.

Wagner makes a valid argument; Greek drama was on a superior level and it should never be compared to a degenerate display of entertainment. Remember that art is a high expression of humanity; the display of a great mind and spirit. We should always revere its power…to hold it in high regard! For art is what separates the Prince from a plebeian and the great civilization from a forgotten one.

Once a culture begins to celebrate degenerate art, it soon becomes degenerate as well.
