The guitar is a stringed instrument, of a type of which several have existed in Europe. I think until the Spanish retuned it, it was a different instrument.
The modern jazz drumkit was invented by German waltz bands.
Pentatonic music is common to European, Asian and Semitic cultures.
Calling rock "blues" is an overstatement, especially considering that blues could not exist without western musical theory.
I'm unclear on why a band would make an anti-Nazi statement that wasn't necessary to make, and open the can of worms. If they're afraid of the authorities, I can understand.
I am also curious as to why Austrians would want to become "not Austrian" through race mixing.
In addition to other questionable history, I would like to point out that the Ottoman empire collapsed from its own instability in part due to ethnic tensions.
We stand at the end of the Age of Ideology, which really was amazingly short. In historical terms - a blip. It dated formally from 1789 to 1991. You may argue that it started a few years earlier, but just leave it at that – the French Revolution to the collapse of the Soviet Empire in 1991. It was an aberration in human history. Future scholars will definitely deem it bizarre as well as deadly, not least because “reason” and “rationality” culminated in the Great European civil war from 1914 to 1945 that reached it’s apotheosis in the Holocaust and echoed in Srebrenica in the 1990s -whenever anyone tells me that today’s Europeans are weak and defenseless, I remind them that Europe is the continent that perfected genocide and ethnic cleansing. And forget “Eurabia.” Europeans will not ‘go gently into that good night.’ They’ve simply enjoyed a golden age of peace under the American defense umbrella with Uncle Sam paying the bills. Now, the parties over, but they don’t want It to end. And, historically, when Europeans are sufficiently provoked, they react savagely. Europe’s also, by the way, the continent that exported more death and destruction than any other.
Back to the end of the Age of Ideology: In many ways its demise is a blessing, the end of this bizarre human fascination with a lunatic notion that one man or a small cabal could sit down and design a better system of social organization than the vast human collective had done organically over the centuries. If you think about America, the Anglo-America tradition of government, it wasn’t designed. We glibly reference the Magna Carta as the fountainhead, but, honestly, no one among our political ancestors sat down in the 12th,13th, or even 18th century, worked out a blueprint and declared, “we need to do exactly this, this and this.” We learned by doing, by trial and error, and for systems of government it appears to be the only method that results in a healthy state.
It really was an amazing achievement, the development of democracy as we know it, from which we all profited – eventually. It’s also a very long and sometimes painful process. The important thing to understand is that the English-speaking world’s evolution of democracy – a presidential or parliamentary system was not the work of a lone genius sketching it all out from scratch. There was no five-year plan, no 10-year plan. It’s too much to say that our system’s an accident, but it evolved over a millenium. And then you come to 1789, and humanity, much of humanity, falls for this trap of believing that an individual or a junta of intellectuals can design a social system that will work for all of humanity. And, of course, humanity always disappoints, whether it’s under Marxism or National Socialism or fascism – the humans disappoint the system. Hitler, at the end of the war, wanted apocalyptic destruction because he felt the German people didn’t deserve his great vision. What happened when people didn’t live up to Stalin’s vision? Or to Lenin’s before that? When you try to impose an ideology arrogantly designed by man upon humankind, you’re on the road to Auschwitz, or the Gulag, or Srebrenica, or the killing fields of Cambodia. - some j3wish website
There are many of us who recognize the historical truth and necessity of nationalism, but won't use that n-based epithet for African-American in conversation. Why: we are motivated by sheer realism and not hatred. We are not interested in the Nazi question, but we're also not interested in those who buy into the modern society ideology of humanism, multiculturalism, capitalism, democracy, mass media and other things that empower the crowd at the expense of the intelligent few.
It is odd to see Summoning adapt policies that would eventually lead to the elimination of its members.
