“What must be said,” that Israel plans to use its “atomic power” to “extinguish the Iranian people.”

These are the words of former Nazi-officer Gunter Grass. He is a former Nobel laureate.

Interior Minister Eli Yishai declared German writer Gunter Grass persona non grata on Sunday, following the publication of a poem by Grass declaring Israel a danger to world peace.

Grass, a former Waffen-SS member and Nobel laureate, wrote in his poem “What Must Be Said,” that Israel plans to use its “atomic power” to “extinguish the Iranian people.” Following an uproar that included a statement against the poem by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Grass responded that his criticism is of Netanyahu, and not Israel as a state.

According to Yishai, the German writer is “promoting the idea he was a partner to when he wore the SS uniform.”

In past years, Günter Grass has repeatedly cast the…

Etype shares a great many myths about “Aryans,” by which means I am not sure what.

The greatest number of linguistic precursor markers for the Aryan language that is shared throughout the globe and the greatest concentrated number of speakers of that language is German.

However this is not to be discussed, as Nazi anthropology and Germans are to be repudiated as thoroughly as possible…even if this means twisting common sense…which is easy enough these days…witness the small-pox blanket myth, something so simple anyone should have been able to refute it…yet for some reason it ran around loose like a dog no one dared collar…even if the entire idea was completely, spuriously insane.

Anthropology like most science, is filled with many of these myths that are demonstrably insane.

The idea that science is a warehouse of verities and not something the state would notice might be good to bolster various…

I thought it might be time to revisit a prior post that I made on Sartre’s “hell is other people.” The quote comes from a play called No Exit. The play and my opinion of the meaning of Sartre’s play and the quote are in my previous essay here.

The take-home quotes from the essay:

According to Sartre, we are incapable of developing reasonable or real opinions of ourselves via ourselves. So how do we derive our opinions of ourselves? Via others.

…according to Sartre, we want to be our own masters, yet we cannot be. We are doomed to need others, whether we want to or not. This is the “no exit.” It’s also the “Hell is other people.” We are doomed to require respect and even adulation from others. We long to free ourselves from this addiction, but we cannot. We are trapped.

We are doomed to need…

School funding crisis could be fixed by freeze on millionaire tax cuts The Alliance Party says school funding issues are putting public education at risk. Alliance education spokesperson Richard Mitchell says Prime Minister John Key could use his charitable impulses to good use and freeze the upcoming tax cuts to those on high incomes like himself. The fact that schools continue to struggle to pay their support staff should come as no surprise to the government, says Mr Mitchell. He says the priorities of a decent education system for all children outweighed the need for promoting lifestyles of the rich and famous. “School operational grants have been under funded for too long now. You only have to open your ears to the number of principals calling out for extra assistance as proof of this.” He says school principals have long been echoing the Alliance’s call for an increase in the…

Alliance Party Media Release: Jim Anderton announces de-facto wind-up of Progressive Party

For Immediate Release- November 19th, 2008

Canterbury Alliance Regional Chair, Quentin Findlay, said that Progressive Party Leader, Jim Anderton’s decision to be in a coalition with Labour in opposition, amounted to the de-facto ‘winding up’ of Jim Anderton’s Progressive Party.

“Jim Anderton has signalled that there really isn’t a difference between the two parties. In essence, Mr Anderton has announced the dissolution of the Progressive Party in all but name.”

Mr Findlay said it was one thing to work with the Labour Party over areas of common interest, but quite another to tie yourself completely to them.

“What this announcement demonstrates is that there are no real differences in terms of philosophy and/or policy between Labour and Jim Anderton. What he should simply do is join the Labour Party…
