Sigmund Freud: "Palestine could never become a Jewish state"

December 5, 2011
(EindPunt) Freud Museum London | Februari 1930 | NEDERLANDS – In February 1930 Freud was asked, as a distinguished Jew, to contribute to a petition condemning Arab riots of 1929, in which over a hundred Jewish settlers were killed. This was his reply: Letter to the Keren Hajessod (Dr. Chaim Koffler) Vienna: 26 February 1930
Dear Sir,
I cannot do as you wish. I am unable to overcome my aversion to burdening the public with my name, and even the present critical time does not seem to me to warrant it. Whoever wants to influence the masses must give them something rousing and inflammatory and my sober judgement of Zionism does not permit this. I certainly sympathise with its goals, am proud of our University in Jerusalem and am delighted with our settlement’s prosperity. But, on the other hand, I do not think that Palestine could ever become a Jewish state, nor that the Christian and Islamic worlds would ever be prepared to have their holy places under Jewish care. It would have seemed more sensible to me to establish a Jewish homeland on a less historically-burdened land. But I know that such a rational viewpoint would never have gained the enthusiasm of the masses and the financial support of the wealthy. I concede with sorrow that the baseless fanaticism of our people is in part to be blamed for the awakening of Arab distrust. I can raise no sympathy at all for the misdirected piety which transforms a piece of a Herodian wall into a national relic, thereby offending the feelings of the natives.
Now judge for yourself whether I, with such a critical point of view, am the right person to come forward as the solace of a people deluded by unjustified hope.
Your obediant servant,
Freud

Now you know where eccentric British fashion designer Bella Freud (the anti-Israel great granddaughter of Sigmund Freud) got her ideas from. A friend of mine,  Barbi Rose said: “Also this was pre Hitler I’m not so sure he would have felt the same after WW 2 that did sort of upset the world balance did it not?”

(h/t Israelly Cool) The red, green, black and white scarf, made by eccentric British fashion designer Bella Freud (the anti-Israel great granddaughter of Sigmund Freud – Aussie Dave) features a Palestinian flag and the word “Palestine” along with an image depicting a key, the symbol of Palestinian refugees. Vogue: Asma al-Assad wasn’t enough? It isn’t the first time that Tilda did something that made me suspect that she had anger towards Jews. I can’t put my finger on it… I can’t prove it… but it is there.

Sigmund was eager to employ cocaine as an antidote for his best friend’s morphine addiction and continued to snort cocaine after his friend’s death from the mix of two chemicals. (MORE)

Aztec Volcano Sacrifice. Is there a truth?

July 14, 2011
The origin of this idea comes from Georges Bataille the Post Marxist who wrote The Accursed Share. The argument is one of equivalence between civilizations: the fat of the civilization… the elite of culture must be victimized for the civilazation to function. This is also echoed in Freud who talked about a martyred father figure being essential as well, however Bataille expands the idea to Jews in the Holocaust as being paralleled in Aztec Virgin Volcano Sacrifice. Bataille is concerned about why a Marxist revolution or  class based movements are inherently violent. The National Socialists and the Bolsheviks certainly were. His point is that the blood letting is essential to a cultures survival. In other words you have to be martyred if you are moral and you should be thankful for this opportunity.  This is the heart of the argument coming from what we call the Left and is in conflict with the idea of the “Good” and “True” usually taking benefit with unknown reasons for the exceptions.  Here is the excerpt from a U.K. Guardian article by Prof. Richard V. Biddable, newly appointed Chomsky Fellow in Cultural Relativity at All Balls College, Oxford:

To ask the question ‘Is it a forgery?’ is to misunderstand the forces that shape culture and the perception of truth itself. Since there is no such thing as objective truth, only truth created by culture, and since the cultural perception that ‘The Protocols’ is a true statement of Jewish objectives and aims in world history is so widespread, almost universal throughout the Arab and Islamic cultural sphere, but elsewhere too, then ‘The Protocols’ has a cultural veracity that makes it an expression of truth, in the same way that a myth may express the inner genius of its civilization.

After all, in Incan civilization it would have been culturally reprehensible to suggest that there was something unreasonable about the sacrifice of tens of thousands of prisoners, who had their hearts torn from their bodies in order to appease the Gods, or that it was actually pointless, because there were no Gods to appease. It would certainly have been extremely impolite. The Gods existed culturally. Therefore they were real. And people had a right, in their own terms a ‘human right’, if you like, to witness that appeasement and draw comfort and satisfaction from it; to deny that right would have been an act of cultural imperialism.

Unlike conventional economic models based on notions of scarcity, Bataille’s theory develops the concept of excess: a civilization, he argues, reveals its order most clearly in the treatment of its surplus energy. via Georges Bataille – The Accursed Share – mitpress.mit.edu and image from Evidence that Incas Fattened up their Children Before Sacrificing Them
