The Banishment of Beauty

by Kevin Alfred Strom

HERE IS AN AMAZING four-part video series (43 minutes total and well worth the time) by the painter Scott Burdick. Don’t be put off by the fact that Burdick goes out of his way — way, way out of his way — to show traditional Western art, some of it […]

The Pine

by Däanlea and Kevin Alfred Strom

AUTHOR’S NOTE:

THIS POEM is really two poems by two authors.

The first part was sent to me by an aspiring new poet named Däanlea, whose work really deserves to be published in print one day.

The second part is my response.

This piece begins in a personal vein, […]

"What murderous, aggressor nation has invaded and sent firebombs and missiles into at least six countries over the last ten years? It sure isn't Iran. Clue: Its capital is Washington, DC. What country has declared its 'right' to kill anyone, anywhere, with no trial and no charges? Right again: America. What country is waging multiple aggressive wars right on Iran's border and threatens the use of nukes against Iran if that nation doesn't 'obey'? Guess what? America again." - Kevin Alfred Strom

"The current regime that rules America combines the very worst elements of capitalism and socialism — the heartless 'I've got mine, Jack' insecurity of capitalism along with the 'you must submit' bureaucratic dictatorship of socialism — the 'national security' state of the Right along with the the total lack of freedom of association and financial privacy of the Left." - Kevin Alfred Strom

"I've never understood why women, with the best life-purpose on Earth -- the creation, raising, and acculturation of their own incarnated immortality, their children -- would want to give that up for making widgets in a widget factory, or selling chumps junk they don't need." - Kevin Alfred Strom

The Third Renaissance

THE THIRD RENAISSANCE: More thoughts from John Galsworthy; writing in 1911 — near the brink of the Suicide of the West in World War I — he called his age the Third Renaissance:

“I cannot help thinking that historians, looking back from the far future, will record this age as the Third Renaissance. We […]
