Together they tackle James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man…and the entirety of the Joycean ouevre. Is Joyce the ultimate anti-imperialist, post-colonial, iconoclastic exile hero?

Daredevil – FLNWO #28

08/08/20155 Comments

With their new Netflix original series, “Daredevil,” the Marvel Entertainment juggernaut of recent years looks set to grow even bigger. But given that Marvel is now owned by Disney, and given the long history of comic books being used for propaganda, and given the documented ties between Marvel and the Pentagon, what kind of cultural conditioning is this series subjecting us to? Are we facing a tide of “propaganda of violence,” and, if so, how should we react to it? Join us in this month’s Film, Literature and the New World Order for an exploration of these issues with James Evan Pilato of MediaMonarchy.com

Narcissus and Goldmund – FLNWO #24

02/16/20156 Comments

Logic and emotion. Language and image. Discipline and instinct. In his classic 1930 novel, Narcissus and Goldmund, Herman Hesse captures the essence of the duality of the human spirit. But while this duality is everywhere evident within us and those around us, is there a higher level of consciousness that combines both Narcissus’ and Goldmunds’ strengths? Is that the answer to the problems posed by fear, authority and tyranny? This month Tjeerd Andringa of the University of Groningen joins James for another fascinating dissection of a classic piece of literature.

We discuss Perloff’s recent article on the Pearl Harbor deception, “Pearl Harbor: Roosevelt’s 9/11” and the pieces of the Pearl Harbor puzzle that the movie leaves out.
