Pin-Up eradicating them The peculiarity of Europe is a paradox pushed to thextreme out of the medieval order came the Renaissance out of feudalism the aspiration to democracy and out of the church s repression the rise of the Enlightenment The religious wars promoted secularism national antagonisms promoted the hope of a supranational community and the revolutions of the twentieth century promoted the antitotalitarian movement Europe like a jailer who throws you into prison and slips you the keys to your cell brought into the world both despotism and liberty It sent soldiers merchants and missionaries to subjugate and xploit distant lands but it also invented an anthropology that provides a way of seeing oneself from the other s point of view of seeing the other in oneself and oneself in the other in short of separating oneself from what is near in order to come closer to that from which one is separated Our Enlightenment values may have revealed themselves as carrying a venom within but they have simultaneously been shown to also bear an antitoxin for that poison We should make use of this fact not to shoulder all of the blame for the ills of the world xcusing non Western nations for their Loyal to His Lies excesses and crimes out of thembarrassed knowledge that we have done the same or worse rather we ought to stand firm in reuiring that such realms admit themselves to the same processes of self reflection responsibility and improvement For all of its myriad faults the West has The Favorite Daughter evolved a societal standard of personal liberties tolerance and the rule of law imperfectly conceived and realized to be sure but a commonality within its constituent nations It ill behooves such foundational values to wallow in culpability to the degree that it paralyses the West from reproaching others when they abuse those rights against their own citizenry or neighbors or are brought as a barrier to set against Western values by those who have immigrated into the countries from which they first aroseAye the multicultural issue Bruckner is fearless in wading full into the touchiest topics of our time the aforementioned and identity politics the Israeli Palestinian uagmire the War on Terrorism fundamental Islam and its anti modernity the accommodations with authoritarian China Russia and the Middle East the failures amongst the former colonial nations of Africa and thenduring conflict between the Old World and the New World over how to deal with all of the above Bruckner s analysis and opinions of Fitness for Geeks each is too complex to delve into with justice in a review But as anxample he sees in Europe s white hot condemnation of Israel one that is out of proportion to both the Jewish state s size and offenses Fully acknowledging Israel s nduring injustices to the Palestinians he yet sees a disturbing tendency to uate Israel carte blance with the Nazi regime a trend the author believes stems from the desire of select European nations France foremost to purge themselves of their guilt over complicity in the treatment of Jews in the Second World War by retroactively proving the Jews deserving of their fate and the transmission of a hatred of Liberal Capitalism shorn of appropriate Third World or Proletarian movements to be infused with such into the heart of its Western outpost within an Islamic milieu that some parts of the West believes it lacks the moral authority to confrontIt is this atrophied will that Bruckner would like to see addressed in ffect he desires that the Old and New Worlds work continually and supportively together rather than at odds in order that Europe might gain the United States ability for self reflection without a diminishment in capacity to act firmly and that the US might simultaneously come to accept the need to tame its pride and accept certain limitations to its ability and the desirability of it being the decider in chief of the world Both civilizations need to work to balance their current spiritual constitution that they might help the process one that will reuire patience and time to be ffected of ncouraging those nations who oppose them to adopt the Enlightenment derived values that will influence them to curb their own abuses allow internal changes and improvements the room to volve and bring themselves into some means of accommodation with an interconnected world And for France itself the author wishes that it might develop some of the Anglo American dynamism that allows them to comparatively Naked Choke embrace the free marketconomic system that has spread across the globe in order that its young populace might show ambition than to compete for bloated government jobs with guaranteed income and pension abstain from its slow sinking into the status of museum of civilization refuse to patronizingly coddle its disaffected minorities and work instead towards addressing a culture that continues to discriminate against the new and unfamiliar that its Leftist Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good elements might proves less conservative and its Conservativelements less radical in the peculiarly paradoxical state of affairs that comprises the modern French polityOne does not need to agree with verything that Bruckner brings to the table in The Tyranny of Guilt In Addition To Lacking The Detailed In addition to lacking the detailed of modern France sufficient to fully gauge the accuracy of the situations therein that he describes and decries I have certain uibbles or problems with his purview regarding multiculturalism the assimilation of immigrants and the xhausting Israeli Palestinian perma crisis And while the xcesses of identity politics can be and are debilitating in many cases their xistence was vital to keeping their issues at the forefront of Society s short attention span the tyranny of Guilt has a sibling in the Majority that can prove just as Seductive Surrender endemic andnfettering However Bruckner is concerned at heart with Seductive Surrender (Highland Heather Romancing a Scot, excesses and I found myself agreeing throughout with hislegantly stated impassioned and wittily limned prose The Tyranny of Guilt is an affliction that asily devolves to the individual I know that my life is one where an oppresively xcessive burden of guilt an self hatred that is perforce the malignant outgrowth of a terribly metastasized love has deformed my personality and restricted my life in ways that I can acknowledge but have proven incapable perhaps unwilling to address The reality of guilt s tyranny is something I have an acute awareness of and so when I ncounter Bruckner s application of it to a higher and broader collectivity I can both accept what he states as true while drawing an ven deeper and fuller understanding of it from his brilliantly constructed arguments Not the happiest of tomes to read but an important one. ? феномен розмірковує над тим якою має стати

An The Deepest Sin excellent critiue of cultural relativism western guilt and multiculturalism While western society has produced injustices colonialism slavery racism massacre it has also produced the antidotes antislavery and abolition anticolonialism the belief inuality before the law liberty antiracism The attitude that guilt over past western injustices should be atoned for by being uncritical towards other cultures is wrongheaded it is atrophying for ourselves and also takes away the possibility of progress for other societies I read fairly happily until page 31 I thought until that moment that perhaps the translation was inadeuate to convey the subtleties of Bruckner s arguments but suspected that the fault lay with Bruckner himself Indeed it appears to me that he is slightly madThe premise here is that the West isn t only bad and that it s not only Western governments that have inflicted vil I agree and njoyed the beginning of this wild and provocative ride But only sentences after arguing that forcing baguettes on Africans and pudding on Hindus is using tribalism to practice imperialism he shows that despite his hip and all mbracing posturing he in fact reeks of that all too familiar Western superiority Page 31 Without Caesar and without the infusion of Greco Roman culture into France was it an infusion and not a forced imperialist infliction because he approves of its high culture in retrospect There are plenty of xamples of Great Cultures practiced by non Europeans too France would get this have long remained a myriad of tribes with uncouth customs and obscure forms of worship I can only laugh because if I think much further about this abomination there will be a book burning in Berlin tonight I m wasting neither my time nor a match Lucid and prescient would be the best way to describe this short bookessay Despite his galitarianpluralist bent Pascal Bruckner does not as many liberals turn a blind ye to the dubiousness of the Western guilt complex He does not accept it as dogma prima facie that The West is guilty in an unualified sense nor does he accept the pious pleading for absolution as a necessary or desirable phenomenon amongst our peoples References to important thinkers Nietzsche Lichtenberg Thucydides tc abound in the book and are referenced wellWell worth the read despite the somewhat regrettable re affirmation of democracy and pluralism as if those help us in any sense Any intensification of of the same will do us no good I m afraid This was a powerfully argued in many ways persuasive intelligent book that I thought I would nd up disliking because of Bruckner s reputation as a political gadfly in Europe The subject of the book would also put off a certain kind of American reader who might openly identify with the terms liberal or p Think of this book as a work of philosophy A French intellectual is challenging the thinking of his contemporaries who chose to deride the accomplishments of their own culture The writing is very French not only is it about the perspective as seen from France but the writing style itself is very florid Personally I thought some of it was very louent It seems many people disagree with me and found it difficult to readHe is not attacking irrelevant straw men These intellectuals are the people who are teaching our children that the West is the source of all oppression with a litany of victims and their ideas are creeping into mainstream society It is important to challenge this thinking and this work read properly can make a useful contributionRather than try to summarize his ntire argument I will drop a few uotes so you can get a feel for his writing style and some of the ideas he xplores Lets start at the beginning Repent That Is The Message That Under Cover is the message that under cover its proclaimed hedonism Western philosophy has been hammering into us for the past half century though that philosophy claims to be both an mancipatory discourse and the guilty conscience of its time What it injects into us in the guise of atheism is nothing other than the old notion Lots of incisive phrasing and humor in this very serious book about how Western multiculturalism sells out Western values while denying full personhood to minorities Protecting minority culture in the West creates a legal apartheid in which we find the wealthy once again Le valeureux guerrier explaining tenderly to the poor that money won t make them happy let us shoulder the burden of freedom of inventing ourselves of theuality of men and women you have the joys of custom forced marriages the veil polygamy and clitoridcectomy Guilt must be the Christian principle par xcellence Obviously it is a healthy lement that helps to discipline both individuals and societies But as Aristoteles has taught us a virtue should be moderate The current European is paralyzed by guilt masochism and fear Both the left Aragon Chomsky and Third World countries help to Wrathful Chaos: Five Books of Satanic Philosophy exploit this feeling The former because they thrive on chaos the latter mostly for financial reasons Paradoxically millions immigrants still want to invade this so called racist continentBruckner stresses that Europe should not feel guilty for all what happened since thend of its colonial mpires Asian countries have proved to recover very well while Africa and Middle East use Europe and ven USA and Israel to neglect their lack of potential corruptionThe European politicians are ither too leftist or too cowardish to react against this tendency Minorities get privileges and are sometimes above the law Hardly a non white can be sentenced for being racist A country is reduced to no than a group of people residing at some point in time somewhere on the same piece of land Multiculturalism has created a new form of apartheid that no longer reuires a constitution to tie in all its inhabitants Common values are not reuired which makes it hard to impossible to integrate mass immigration cf recent Charlie Hebdo MurdersEurope Has Lost Its Political Will And Military Power During has lost its political will and MILITARY POWER DURING COLD WAR IT COULD RELY ON power During Cold War it could rely on Western nephew which it secretly admires and openly hates While Europe is risk averse and clinging to its past not sure whether it should cherish or despise that past too US is rather confident and forward lookingI liked particularly the pisode on France and its post WW II feelings of annoyance and regret about its glorious pastNot sure whether Europe and US are so connected and should be as the author recommends Bush jr and Obama seem to have directed their attention to Asia In my opinion Europe should first gain confidence and heavily invest in a military and political future As a strong partner it can look to both United States and Russia to co operate But that perspective reuires a strong ideological medecine to get cured from that nasty feeling of guilt Is there any doctor in the room From Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival existentialism to deconstructionism all of modern thought can be reduced to a mechanical denunciation of the Westmphasizing the the latter s hypocrisy violence and abomination In this nterprise the best minds have lost much of their subst. У книзі сучасного французького письменника і філософа порушено питання яке на думку автора становить велику проблему Європи захоплен?. AnceThus begins Pascal Bruckner s ntertaining occasionally brilliant denunciation of the denunciators who are or less all of usIt would be The Fix easy to lump Bruckner in with disillusioned Anglo American liberals such as Paul Berman or Christopher Hitchens in his Ira invasion cheerleading guise but the temptation should be resisted Ira was anxemplary case of the double bind whether one approved of the intervention or not one was wrong Hard to imagine Hitchens writing that Bruckner s analysis is subtler spritely as you d xpect from the author of Perpetual Euphoria and Bitter Moon His polemic is directed at whole pantheons of intellectuals historians commentators journalists at all the masochists who hate themselves than they love others who refuse to hold other cultures and societies to the same standards by which they condemn their ownBruckner is hardly the first to make this argument but few have made it better I did find it strange that he made no mention of The Betrayal of the West by Jacues Ellul published a generation ago An nterprising reviewer not me could provide a point by point comparison of the two books in fact in his central argument Bruckner merely updates and re frames Ellul Neither has any intention of xcusing the crimes of the West they accept those as given But ach wants to defend values that have taken centuries to achieve Desire in Seven Voices even if those values have just as often been betrayed Nowherelse did anyone discover the astounding truth that is peculiar to man he is a maker of history history understood as the xpression of freedom and of man s mastery of vents nature and his own social life This conception of history is characteristic of all western thinking whether rightest or leftist Ellul Freedom is not a crusade it is a proposition Bruckner The situation of the West brings with it a crushing responsibility and perhaps a crushing guilt writes Ellul But masochism solves nothing Culpability provides an alibi for our abdication Bruckner concludes Crime will always The Casa Mono Cookbook exceed the possibilities of pardon and memories will always be too numerous the dead will not be avenged or sufferings amended wounds closed Only history oral or written can give these millions of dead the tomb they deserveEveryone will find plenty to argue with in this book but it s bracing in the best sense free of the poison of partisan politicsxemplary in its xercise of critical thought and imagination What started as a decent and well constructed study on the feelings of shame and guilt of Europe turned out to be a biased narrow minded read spewing hatred towards islam and ulogizing zionism and the Zionist Construction Elouently written regarding the content however it is too many times inaccurate and not much worth uite xcellent in its rudite and stinging xecution this necessary ssay Lachlan's Protg (English Edition) expounding upon the modernra s debilitatingly pervasive Cult of Culpability and its attendant spiritual morbidity aligns itself remarkably well as a complementary companion piece to Walter Russell Mead s God and Gold Much as in the work that I ve read of Chantal Delsol Bruckner a kindred French thinker focusses the majority of his powers of observation upon his homeland yet not only does his gaze allow itself to broaden and ncompass modern Europe and its transatlantic kin but the symptoms malaise and remedies that he spies in a troubled and torporific France can through a medial xtension apply themselves in varying degrees to a considerable number of those democratic states that spouse the values birthed in the Enlightenment and are ither located in or descended from the Western part of EuropeThe list of crimes and horrors nacted by the West over

actualizing of genocidal ideations leading up to the hell on arth of the Holocaust the long subjugation of women as second class and homosexuals as invisible citizens is one both lengthy and appalling and the shame and guilt they have brought upon its denizens was and is deserved and necessary What Bruckner sets out to xplain is that this guilt has metastasized fed on itself set itself up as the

itsxternal awareness becomes abstract its judgement permissive its guiding s The Originality of the Avant-Garde and Other Modernist Myths etherealIn this donning of the mantle ofternal self condemnation Bruckner Modeling and Analysis of Communicating Systems espies an arrogance and narcissism that once spread outward through imperialism and conuest of supposedly uncivilized peoples and lands now seeks inlevating itself to the status of the paradigm of remorseful malefactor to use such overindulgence to reclaim the former paramount position it held within the world However unacceptable the deeds of another group or state might be the West can cry Look at us We re worse Who are we to judge you as it loudly lashes itself takes its accustomed place upon the global stage

prevalent in the reader s Bruckner wishes to show how both sin and atonement have sprung from the same core values that have fueled the ngine of Western civilization for a half millennia There is no doubt that Europe has given birth to monsters but at the same time it has given birth to theories that make it possible to understand and destroy these monsters Because it has raised the alliance between progress and cruelty between technological power and aggressiveness to the highest point since the Conuist. ?я самобичуванням розкаянням в «історичних» гріхах європейців перед колишніми колоніями та ісламським світом П Брюкнер аналізуючи це?. .
