Dutch artist’s Dog Shagging Robot definitely “spiritual art and not obscene”, says Paris’ Centre Pompidou director

  • By: Emma Alberta Webb
  • The Director of the Pompidou Centre, where the masterpiece now takes sanctuary like a relic fleeing the reformation, described it as a “funny” work of art that is “an obvious nod to the relationship of abstraction and figurative painting that co-exist in Dutch art in the 20th century. Spiritual yes, obscene no.”

    Essay – Why the EU can’t make sense of the world and why its downfall is imminent

  • By: Timon Dias
  • First, there’s the EU’s primary internal contradiction: EU federalism is an ideology that propagates post-ideologism; a culturally amorphous post-ideological world. A cosmopolitan easy going agnostic world, in which the single market and currency have made nationalism obsolete. Indeed, a world where the European Parliament invites a long-haired bearded shemale to perform in front of its building and announces him/her as “The voice of Europe” singing for equality, without anyone batting an eye.

    The EU’s core problem, however, is that in its way of viewing and engaging the world beyond Brussels’ city walls, it is acting as if the world has already arrived at this so badly coveted post-cultural and post-ideological end station.

    Essay – The age of Tertiary Literature and the broken contract between Words and their Transcendent Meaning

  • By: Lars Benthin
  • Steiner states that in the 18th and 19th century, philosophical and artistic progress led to such great heights, that we as Western Civilization thought we had reached a maximum. The emphasis of rationality in science secularised philosophy and with the Death of God, as Nietzsche proclaimed, we humans were from now on supposed rule our own lives and create our own values. 

    But with the death of God came something else. With the progress of science, we started to separate natural and traditional phenomena from a transcendent meaning or purpose.

    Essay by Dutch MP Thierry Baudet: The EU will end European Democracy

  • By: Thierry Baudet
  • In his dystopian classic, The Managerial Revolution (1941), the American political scientist James Burnham coined the concept of “controlled democracy”. According to Burnham, the civil democracies of the second half of the 20th century would – more or less gradually – be overgrown with backroom bureaucratic networks that make the actual decisions, all far away from the electorate and public debate. While this would slowly but surely erode the democratic mandate of governments, Burnham explicitly didn’t expect that this would lead to the dissolution of the European nation-state – in name, that is.
