This is about the one I just bought off amazon
While we now have the admirable work of Raphael Gross on Schmitt and the Jews, we possess nothing remotely like it concerning Jünger.
This is an essay by that Habiru who wrote of Corbin that “he declared war on us.”
He believes that Jünger was just sneakier about it and encoded it in symbolism
The present paper assumes that a quasi-mystical belief in Jewish enmity was as central for Jünger as it was for Schmitt.
Hmm Schmitt was the godfather of Jünger’s son CARL, didn’t know that.
This is groundbreaking scholarship if true
His final three novels deal with “the Jewish question”, either directly or allusively, in sustained detail.
I have to hand it to this Habiru (Wasserstrom)- he’s the type that KNOWS THE ENEMY very well. I can concede that even if I AM that enemy myself.
Good, redeem Jünger for me, I’ve always had a softspot for him, and have taken to seeing him as a coward the last couple years.
This is making me laugh- POETIC antisemitism, we need more of this
In [Rabbi Nilufer’s] writings one saw world history mirrored as in muddy pools on the banks of which water-rats nest.
Best statement of the week!!!!!!
Can’t you imagine how pissed off Wasserstrom is when reading Jünger say these things? I love it.
It’s so true. We live in a crypto-totalitarian state where even Latinos are leveled. Why is there so much denial about the following?
I was wrong to write Jünger off, I’m so glad he’s back in my pantheon. He must have taken that advice Heidegger gave him in a letter and went into secrecy mode for the most part.
So apparently Jünger was one of the rare Germans who knew about Kabbalah. He incorporated themes from it in his novels. Remember, it was mostly only the Talmud that goys knew about (if that).
Anyway did you know Jünger’s own opinion regarding the center of his corpus?
Heliopolis (for whatever reason) is still not in English. It’s easy to find on the Krautnet though. And this perceptive Wasserstrom shows that it contains cryptic themes.
On The Glass Bees
Leviathan, which in turn is described as a ‘secret’ and ‘mystery’ employed by a man, Zapparoni, who knows his ‘cabala’.
Yes! Me, Bjerknes, and shekina.mybb are not the only ones then.
After my readings this morning I’m never going to look at Jünger or Schmitt the same way again.
For instance, think of how the basic political philosophy of Eumeswil can be a hint about, or a proposed ANSWER, to the JQ.
They were good friends.
According to a Cabalist exegesis, Leviathan dwells in towering citadels that are remote from one another, perhaps on cliffs; the Jews are scattered among them as strangers. From those heights Leviathan battles behemoth.
Holy crap dude, Schmitt’s book on Hobbes? It’s about the JQ. Schmitt’s version of the Leviathan probably influenced Jünger’s use of it.
Muhahaha cracking the safe.
This spin makes Eumeswil so much more profound
Now I have to reread both of their oeuvres. I thought they were so innocent! That was stupid of me. This Wasserstrom has revealed as much about the enemy Jünger as he did the enemy Corbin, and I appreciate it.
You can’t be serious. Aladdin’s Problem? Guess what Wasserstrom speculates that problem is? Use your imagination.
Now his final novel, A Dangerous Encounter. Is this just a stereotypical paranoid Jew? I’ll have to reread Jünger’s books to decide for myself
the ‘encounter’ between Jews and Germans was ‘dangerous’ in a cosmic and totalizing sense.
I suggest reading this essay. It unlocks so many new, potential hermeneutics.
Apparently in the NONfiction book he’s most renowned for, Der Arbeiter, “Ahasver” is used as a codeword for Leviathan, which is used as a codeword for…
Yes, so glad to redeem my boi Jünger. For a while there I was seeing him as no better than all the shills of today.
Not even an exaggeration- learn to accept it (instead of doing its bidding you prostitutes)
pseudonyms for an un-named planetary enemy forebodingly characterized as invisible, market-driven, secretive, a global threat as the ‘adversary’ (Gegner), satanic, diabolic, even Antichrist
Read the essay for yourself, otherwise I’ll be quoting the whole thing- it’s a revelation
It is worth recalling that Der Arbeiter is a call to arms by the best-known man of arms in Germany. Th is provocation, published just months before the death of the Weimar Republic, roused and justified re-mobilization, if only in symbolic terms.
They kept this one untranslated for wayyy too many decades. The leftist slapstick-nietzscheans probably didn’t want a right-Nietzschean of Jünger’s calibre in English.
There are around 50,000 letters in the Jünger collection too in which he apparently speaks frequently in symbolic terms.
Hey, I forgot how much this line influenced me years ago
Whenever two beings love one another, they deprive Leviathan of a part of his terrain
This is a constant theme here. I learned the idea from Jünger without even being aware what he was symbolizing.
It’s from ‘Über die Linie’, the essay that Heidegger himself responded to with his own essay in which he also invokes Leviathan. These essays are “”ostensibly”” on “”nihilism””.
Thanks for all the new reading material, Wasserstrom, you fool!
From Schmitt’s Glossarium
Precisely the assimilated Jew is the true enemy
