Defeatism

Defeatism is the acceptance of defeat without struggle, often with negative connotations. It can be linked to pessimism in psychology.

The term defeatism is commonly used in politics as a descriptor for an ideological stance that considers co-operation with the opposition party. In the military context, in wartime, and especially at the front, defeatism is synonymous with treason.

Under military law, a soldier can be accused of being defeatist if he refuses to fight by voicing doubt of the ideological validity of national policy; thus, existential questions such as “Is the war already lost?” and “Is the fight worth the effort?” are defeatism that connote advocacy of an alternative end-to-the war other than military victory.

Members of the North and West European “Alt-Right” has been going on and on for years, about ‘turning tail’ and run off to seek refuge amongst some of the countries and people who are dragging us down and invading our home lands.

Eastern Europe is our Mexico!

I think, that it’s an unhealthy habit [defeatism].

If you are planning this, atleast keep it to yourselves.

Sweden is a big country with a low population density. It’s relative cheap to buy and own a summer house in Sweden.

If you have a hunter license in Denmark, Norway or Germany, you are allowed to bring semi-automatic rifles with you to Sweden for hunting. This is in many ways a luxury version, of the American bug out hut.

There are no excuses for defeatism and planning to run of to Poland, Russia, etc. even if you are concerned about your family.

Can Pagans Be Moral?

I should like to drum up talk about something I have seen in my years of Pagang Shenanigans. Call it an oddity, a tic. There is the idea, and it is not a particularly good one, that Paganism is inherently libertine. It is a very old thought. It goes back to the conversion times, and the ad strawmaninem and No Good Scotsman tactics favoured by the (((conversos))) of late stage nascent Christendom. It should be said that in many cases, relations between strictly Pagan and Christian Europeans typically remained cordial as was the case in Celtic and Nordic lands, and one would think Hellenic and Romantic Lands. I should digress, as the nature of precisely when talk turned sour is not this writing’s scope.

The scope is to hopefully rid us of this insipid notion that Paganism is libertine, and thus by proxy a vehicle of default moral relativism and liberal imperialism. There shall follow common allegations and argumentations, and a concerted address to each in turn.

Symphony Orchestra

Danish National Symphony Orchestra at the Copenhagen Concert Hall, 2019.

An orchestra (/ˈɔːrkɪstrə/Italian: [orˈkɛstra]) is a large instrumental ensemble typical of classical music, which combines instruments from different families, including bowed string instruments such as the violinviolacello, and double basswoodwinds such as the fluteoboeclarinet and bassoonbrass instruments such as the horntrumpettrombone and tuba, and percussion instruments such as the timpanibass drumtrianglesnare drumcymbals, and mallet percussion instruments each grouped in sections. Other instruments such as the piano and celesta may sometimes appear in a fifth keyboard section or may stand alone, as may the concert harp and, for performances of some modern compositions, electronic instruments.

A full-size Western orchestra may sometimes be called a symphony orchestra or philharmonic orchestra (from Greek phil-, “loving”, and “harmonic”). The actual number of musicians employed in a given performance may vary from seventy to over one hundred musicians, depending on the work being played and the size of the venue. A chamber orchestra (sometimes concert orchestra) is a smaller ensemble of not more than about fifty musicians. Orchestras that specialize in the Baroque music of, for example, Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel, or Classical repertoire, such as that of Haydn and Mozart, tend to be smaller than orchestras performing a Romantic music repertoire, such as the symphonies of Johannes Brahms. The typical orchestra grew in size throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, reaching a peak with the large orchestras (of as many as 120 players) called for in the works of Richard Wagner, and later, Gustav Mahler.

Orchestras are usually led by a conductor who directs the performance with movements of the hands and arms, often made easier for the musicians to see by use of a conductor’s baton. The conductor unifies the orchestra, sets the tempo and shapes the sound of the ensemble. The conductor also prepares the orchestra by leading rehearsals before the public concert, in which the conductor provides instructions to the musicians on their interpretation of the music being performed.

The leader of the first violin section, commonly called the concertmaster, also plays an important role in leading the musicians. In the Baroque music era (1600–1750), orchestras were often led by the concertmaster or by a chord-playing musician performing the basso continuo parts on a harpsichord or pipe organ, a tradition that some 20th-century and 21st-century early music ensembles continue. Orchestras play a wide range of repertoire, including symphonies, opera and ballet overturesconcertos for solo instruments, and as pit ensembles for operasballets, and some types of musical theatre (e.g., Gilbert and Sullivan operettas).

Amateur orchestras include those made up of students from an elementary school or a high school, youth orchestras, and community orchestras; the latter two typically being made up of amateur musicians from a particular city or region.

The term orchestra derives from the Greek ὀρχήστρα (orchestra), the name for the area in front of a stage in ancient Greek theatre reserved for the Greek chorus.

Bayreuth

During the war, the festival was turned over to the NSDAP Party, which continued to sponsor operas for wounded soldiers returning from the front. These soldiers were forced to attend lectures on Wagner before the performances, and most found the festival to be tedious. However, as “guests of the Führer”, none complained.

Richard Wagner

The NSDAP fascination with Wagner was largely inspired by Hitler, sometimes to the dismay of other high-ranking NSDAP officials, including Joseph Goebbels. In 1933, for instance, Hitler ordered that each Nuremberg Rally open with a performance of the overture from Rienzi. He also issued one thousand free tickets for an annual Bayreuth performance of Meistersinger to NSDAP functionaries. When Hitler entered the theater, however, he discovered that it was almost empty. The following year, those functionaries were ordered to attend, but they could be seen dozing off during the performance, so that in 1935, Hitler conceded and released the tickets to the public.

The orchestra traces its origins back to 1448 and the Trumpet Corps at the royal court of King Christian I, and thus has claims to be the oldest orchestra in the world.
