Hahahaha. Beautiful. I was reading it aloud here to Fixed Cross, but we had to cut it short.

Anyway, this is a comedy. Shakespeare knows women best in his tragedies, 'cause true power is tragic and women have true power. Men are more the attempt to curb the irrepressible will of women.

Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf, My Struggle


Oops, I guess I should read up on "my Hitler"!


Perhaps I should point out that I never denied that those Hitler quotes were by Hitler (unlike what you suggested was a Nietzsche quote, which turned out to be only a quote about Nietzsche). I suspected that they might be inaccurate (and I still think they might: I haven't read up on Hitler in the meantime and don't intend to do so), but I wasn't at all surprised they were by Hitler, having read through Mein Kampf and his Table Talk in the past. (I suspected your quotes might be inaccurate because your quoting style reminded me of Abir Taha, whose Nietzsche, Prophet of Nazism is by far the worst piece of "scholarship" I've read in the last ten years (to name a number; it's probably more than ten).)

Now all you need to do is compare your Hitler quotes to actual Nietzsche quotes to demonstrate that "the ideal society of Hitler wasn't really that different from that of Nietzsche"!

Romeo and Juliet is an enigma then. Who is whimsical here, who has the will, who has the power?


There is a relation between power and will, that's hard


To subscribe to.

A mechanistic view may be that of a teeter-totter. Wherever the fulcrum is, which hypothetically adjusted for a balance between two unequal weights.
If in fact the motion should be continued, they have to be separated and move away from the center in different, opposite directions. So the vastly heavier, has to move away only a little bit.

The light one has to move way, way out, sort of like
out on a limb.

It can not even be seen, that's how far. It can only be felt, where the equilibrium can not be merely a whimsical charade. There, the power becomes indistinguishable from whose will, the perpetuamobile continues and why?; because for that answer, It has to reach way down into logic, and it's certainty, but without the light of seeing, how would the light of reason eminate?

So even though the are separate, they are essentially not only similar, but identical. They have to be perceived as identical, in absolute union. Here, whimsy has no place.

I do not adore Shakespeare or his work. Too flowery, sing song, the poem below has truth in it.


An Almost Made Up Poem - Poem by Charles Bukowski

I see you drinking at a fountain with tiny
blue hands, no, your hands are not tiny
they are small, and the fountain is in France
where you wrote me that last letter and
I answered and never heard from you again.
you used to write insane poems about
ANGELS AND GOD, all in upper case, and you
knew famous artists and most of them
were your lovers, and I wrote back, it’ all right,
go ahead, enter their lives, I’ not jealous
because we’ never met. we got close once in
New Orleans, one half block, but never met, never
touched. so you went with the famous and wrote
about the famous, and, of course, what you found out
is that the famous are worried about
their fame –– not the beautiful young girl in bed
with them, who gives them that, and then awakens
in the morning to write upper case poems about
ANGELS AND GOD. we know God is dead, they’ told
us, but listening to you I wasn’ sure. maybe
it was the upper case. you were one of the
best female poets and I told the publishers,
editors, “ her, print her, she’ mad but she’
magic. there’ no lie in her fire.” I loved you
like a man loves a woman he never touches, only
writes to, keeps little photographs of. I would have
loved you more if I had sat in a small room rolling a
cigarette and listened to you piss in the bathroom,
but that didn’ happen. your letters got sadder.
your lovers betrayed you. kid, I wrote back, all
lovers betray. it didn’ help. you said
you had a crying bench and it was by a bridge and
the bridge was over a river and you sat on the crying
bench every night and wept for the lovers who had
hurt and forgotten you. I wrote back but never
heard again. a friend wrote me of your suicide
3 or 4 months after it happened. if I had met you
I would probably have been unfair to you or you
to me. it was best like this.

Not his women with their steel bosoms.

Misogyny is nowhere near as prevalent in our time than it was in Shakespeare's or Nietzsche's, each had it's own degree of.


Women will always find some "misogyny" in man's image of her, no matter how positive or negative it is. If it's too positive, then it's not "real" enough, it's not how she really is... But if it's too real...well, then all hell breaks loose...A woman can never get her makeup just right. She watches him like a sentinel to see how well he straddles the fence when the subject of appearances comes up.

Btw, if Shakespeare and Nietzsche are misogynists, then things don't bode well for the rest of the male population, who will never be so gentle with women.



I do not adore Shakespeare or his work. Too flowery, sing song, the poem below has truth in it.


Ejaculatory prose does not a poem make.

Charles Bukowski interviewed by Sean Penn

On Shakespeare:
He's unreadable and overrated. But people don't want to hear that. You see, you cannot attack shrines. Shakespeare is embedded through the centuries. You can say "So-and-so is lousy actor!" But you can't say Shakespeare is shit. The longer something is around, snobs begin to attach themselves to it, like suckerfish. When snobs feel something is safe...they attach. The moment you tell them the truth, they go wild. They can't handle it. It's attacking their own thought process. They disgust me.
[/quote][/quote]

The irony is that Shakespeare is lost on snobs, and apparently Charkles Bukowski too. The guy who prides himself on his down to earth style I guess can't appreciate heartfelt sincerity when he hears it.

Shakespeare, read well, is a first rate Dionysiac. What he weaves into his sentences is pure eros, sap of life.

No you read Shakespeare only as in which character is your souls worst sin.

See it in context of depth psychology which popular success like this always is born of; the psyche of the middle ages in England was a bit more hardy than to seek what we seek in poetry, it wanted the absolute worst, and laugh about it. Their sins exposed, confessed.

Most modern actors shroud this barbarism, which it essentially is, and is meant is, in a flowery delivery.

The white robe isn't a reference to Jesus, but to purity, it is a theatrical means, you savage. The performance of the actor is truly legitimate, especially the part about the Last Man. Which is why people wont like it if they are Last Men!
The most thrilling part of the piece I found where the audience responds - it made me scream out loud in awe, or a sentiment of surprise Ive never felt before as I watched it back, Ive never had that before in my life. I am truly a Nietzschean in my fucking bones. And this piece is the world is a nutshell.

Im going to go ahead and say that this is the best, bravest and most badass piece of theater Ive ever seen performed.
Just picking this monologue, and actually managing to convey the contempt for the Last Man, what a fucking king this guy is.

A Nietzschean "Creation myth" might be: existence began with an act of divine Destruction.

::

The Word, seen in its true Sense, is itself Force, itself Deed. For the Word is a Verb rather than a Noun--a Name for a Work, a Doing--an Act... Must a Writer not be an Actor, a Pretender? Unto the Real World Stage, then!

AT THIS POINT I CAN NO LONGER STAND MY CAPITALS AMONG A LOWER CASE AUDIENCE. AND LOWER CASE, WITH ALL THE SUBTLETY OF PUNCTUATION... BUT NO, I WILL NOT PRETEND THAT I'M ADVANCED ENOUGH TO DO WITHOUT PUNCTUATION, EVEN AS I WON'T PRETEND TO BE ABLE TO WRITE LATIN OR GREEK. THIS NIETZSCHEAN AGE IS TOO MUCH STILL A BEGINNING. LIKE MY SELF-IMPOSED EXILE FROM THE WORLD OF TONAL MUSIC--AND MY TONAL FAVOURITES WERE ALREADY AN ODD SELECTION!--, THIS WAY OF WRITING IS AN EXPERIENT IN TAKING THINGS COLD AND SLOW.*

* 'TIS A SUBTLETY THAT I'VE BEEN WRITING IN ALL-CAPS FOR YEARS: NAMELY, WHEN WRITING AS OPPOSED TO TYPING--LITERALLY WRITING! MY HANDWRITING WAS JUST TOO BAD. KALLIGRAPHY BE DAMED!--SOMETHING FOR DAMES...

IF MY CAPITALIZATION MAKES ME "SOUND" LIKE I'M SHOUTING, MY "BORINGNESS" MAY SERVE TO COMPENSATE. MY PASSION DEMANDS IT. BUT I'VE BEEN THINKING THIS MAY NOW FINALLY IMPEL ME TO EMBRACE THE ILLUSION OF NEGATIVITY: DARKNESS, DEATH, UGLINESS... I'VE ALWAYS DRAWN THE LINE AT UGLINESS, AND THEREBY AT DEATH. TO ME, DARKNESS, DEEPEST BLACKNESS ITSELF WAS A MOST ATTRACTIVE FORCE EVEN IN THE MOST BEATIFUL COLOUR SPECTRUM. THE SHADOW OF NIGHT... [TYPO IN "BEAUTIFUL" NOTED.]

I JUST INDULGED--WELL, ALMOST COMPLETELY INDULGED--IN A POEM ON THE UNDERGROUND WALL. BUT THOUGH I MAY FLY STRAIGHT BACK TO MODAL MUSIC, I MAY NOT DENY SUCH ROOTS. EVEN NOW I'M LISTENING TO UMA MOHAN, WHOSE WAS THE FIRST MODAL MUSIC THAT MIGHT HAVE MOVED ME TO TEARS. I WILL NOT DENY THAT PASSION, BUT NOR THAT SUCH PASSION IS FOR RELATIVE BEGINNERS. IN THE SENSE OF A HIGH CULTURE ETC...

I'VE SAID IT BEFORE, BUT THERE'S A PASSION THAT HAS LIVED ALL THE PASSION OF DEATH AND CAN ONLY LIVE THE PASSION FOR THE DEATH OF THAT PASSION NOW... AND WHEN _THIS_ PASSION HAS DIED... ONE WITH RELIEF--THOUGH WITHOUT BREATHING A SIGH--WELCOMES SUBTLETY OF PASSION, THE SEEMING ABSENCE OF PASSION... SEEMING ONLY TO COARSE EARS, TO AMBITIOUS HEARTS. BUT IT'S ONLY WHEN THE FOOL PERSISTS IN HIS FOLLY THAT HE BECOMES WISE; AND IT'S ONLY WHEN HE'S THOUGHT WISE THAT HE BECOMES A ROD... BUT THIS FOOL, THIS ONCE PURE FOOL WHO WENT THE PATH OF THE MAGUS WILL NOW BE A ROD BY EMBRACING EVERYTHING THOUGHT NEGATIVE. HE WILL INSIST ON BEING AN IPSISSIMUS WHILE AT THE SAME TIME ONLY BEING A MAGUS TO THE IPSISSIMOSITY CALLED NIETZSCHE. IT'S A PREJUDICE THAT ALL THE NEGATIVE VALUES BELONG TOGETHER, BY THE WAY. EVIL AND BAD ARE NOT THE SAME. BUT POPULARLY, THEY ARE THOUGHT THE SAME: THEREFORE I MUST ALSO EMBRACE THE BAD. YES, "MUST"! AND NOT JUST "WILL". NEED, THE NEGATIVE COUNTERPART OF WILL, MUST ALSO BE WILLED. THAT THE WORLD IS A COLD AND EMPTY PLACE: THAT ABSENCE IS THE GREAT INSPIRER OF THE GREAT FIRE THAT IS THIS UNIVERSE. FEAR: THAT IS THE AWFUL FEELING INFLAMING ALL OF US. THE HORROR OF THE REAL. BUT WAIT, DIDN'T I JUST DESCRIBE THE REAL AS THAT GREAT FIRE, AS OPPOSED TO THE COLD DARKNESS WHICH IS IDEAL [AN IDEA]? HELL IS OTHER BEINGS. IT ONLY BECOMES HEAVENLY WHEN YOU EMBRACE YOURSELF AS ONE OF THESE HELL-BEINGS. THEN YOU ARE INDEED ONE OF THE SATYRS.

I think you need to go much further with this transfiguration of writing, namely also becoming entirely metrical in the classical sense.

Doesn't that only go for poetry, though? I mean, I'm always very aware of the rhythm of what I write, but that doesn't require meter.
Value Philosophy: First philosophy is the positing of the metaphysics one values the most.
Value Metaphysics: Being is essentially Self-Valuing: beings exist inasmuch as they value themselves.
Value Axiology: Valuation is a rational value, as the disvaluation of it would disvalue itself, too.
Value Logic: Logic's self-identical "A" is a value, and not necessarily a fact.
Value Ethics: It is just to consider things just, and unjust to consider things unjust.

No I have it. Let me make a suggestion about how to pull this off without punctuation.

AT THIS POINT I CAN NO LONGER STAND MY CAPITALS AMONG A LOWER CASE AUDIENCE
AND LOWER CASE WITH ALL THE SUBTLETY OF PUNCTUATION
BUT NO I WILL NOT PRETEND THAT I'M ADVANCED ENOUGH TO DO WITHOUT PUNCTUATION

AND MY TONAL FAVOURITES WERE ALREADY AN ODD SELECTION
THIS WAY OF WRITING IS AN EXPERIENT IN TAKING THINGS COLD AND SLOW

this works perfectly well, reads better than a large block with ongoing text in caps with punctuation, which quite simply is too much information per square centimeter for my brain to find pleasant reading.

Your rhythms are indeed the ground, and I say just break up all phrases and let them stand alone.
This way, it breathes like rhetoric wants to breathe. All phrases can be called out in a loud voice over a big square.
