White Vocabulary: cicerone

Posted by alex in White vocabulary at 6:32 am | Permanent Link

rousseau.gif Rousseau’s ability to love mankind with a passionate, theatrical love while abusing the actual men and women with whom he came into contact set the precedent for abhorrent 19th-century “idealists” like Shelley and Wagner. The most glaring of his sins, which his enemies loved to use against him, was his abandonment of no fewer than five of his children to a foundling hospital, where they were very likely to die, simply because he refused to live the bourgeois life of a husband and father.

Like other impossible geniuses, Rousseau had no trouble attracting patrons. Leading figures of the ancien regime were eager to be associated with the man who blasted the aristocracy, the church, and society in general in works such as “La Nouvelle Heloise” and “Emile.” But few remained his benefactor for long, since he was as proud as any Spanish grandee, quick to repay kindness with suspicion. By 1766, Rousseau’s radicalism had made both France and Switzerland unlivable for him – his house in a Swiss village was stoned by angry neighbors – and he determined to try his luck in England.

Fortunately, as it seemed at first, Rousseau had a perfect cicerone in Hume, who was just about to return home after a stint as a British diplomat in Paris. Rest of article on Rousseau.

‘Cicerone’ comes from Marcus Tullius Cicero.

You play cicerone to your visitors as you show them around your home city. Rousseau’s Confessions is worth reading. Back then you had to step lively lest a pederastic jebootineer molest or the local duchess find you fell afoul of the prevailing shade of ‘booismus.

      (Coda – apart from his value as Sunday reading.)

      I think I wrote some shit essay a while ago decrying Rousseau in favor of his contemporary, de Maistre — anyway, the consequences of Rousseau’s “thought” are still with us. Wherever rune-clubs and bourgeois nationalists leave their domestic droppings, you’re looking at the direct descendants of Rousseau and Herder, mother and father of nostalgia for primitive living, be it in hogans or huts.

      “The Jews belong to a dark and repulsive force. One knows how numerous this clique is, how they stick together and what power they exercise through their unions. They are a nation of rascals and deceivers.”

      Yes, and note Rousseau was the anti-rationalist inspiration-precursor to Immanuel Kant for neo-Pelagian hubris which eventually led to corruption of white middle class pretending to “morality” (as of delusion of “good-evil”). One might almost but well say Rousseau was the beginning of the fateful “Decline of the West” by Oswald Spengler. We must teach-exhort “Judeo-Christians” it isn’t really Christian or right in proper morality to deny the virtue of antisemitism. Apollonian

      Rousseau was truly the first big marquee Whigger in history. I’m trying to imagine (I’ve heard this before) what kind of white man would abandon five of his offspring to a foundling hospital. I like to visualize a man like that swinging back and forth on a tree branch with the crows feasting on his orbs, except that’s too damn good for the proto-commie asshole.

      Of course Rousseau provided most the ideological groundwork for the super-kikes who came after him like Marx. Like Marx himself, few people are aware of just what kind of Mega-Accelerated-Alabaster Nigger that Rousseau was in his personal life.

      P.S. Thanks for the vocab study, Alex. Cool. Might make a good regular feature.

      P.P.S. Confessions is exactly like Oscar Wildes De Profundis. Brilliant writing by a faggot asshole with nothing at all to say. There isn’t a jew on the planet who has written anything as good as Rousseau or Wilde, but frankly … both pitiful oxygen bandits.

      Yea, and remember the part where he runs away from those kids who pick a fight with him?
