Gift From Heaven

nam

The Republic of Viet Nam coup:

“Within a week of the coup, the Vietcong had regained its direction and launched more than one thousand attacks. A communist spokesperson expressed shock that the Americans had appeared to support the removal of Diệm, believing him to have been one of their strongest opponents. The leader of the Viet Cong, Nguyễn Hữu Thọ termed the coup a “gift from Heaven for us“.[131] Some Vietcong officials were so surprised that the Americans would remove Diệm that they thought it was a trick. They felt Diệm’s removal was a blunder on the part of the Americans. Tho said “Our enemy has been seriously weakened from all points of view, military, political and administrative.”
 ““Madame Nhu, who was in the United States at the time, denounced the coup and angrily accused the Americans of orchestrating it. When asked about whether the US was involved, she replied “definitely”, elaborating that “no coup can erupt without American incitement and backing” and declaring that she would not seek asylum “in a country whose government stabbed me in the back”.[136] She said “I believe all the devils of hell are against us” and that “whoever has the Americans as allies does not need enemies.
“South Vietnam’s Buddhist majority had long been discontented with Diệm’s strong favoritism towards Roman Catholics. Public servants and army officers had long been promoted on the basis of religious preference, and government contracts, US aid, business favours and tax concessions were preferentially given to Catholics.[10] The Roman Catholic Church was the largest landowner in the country, and its holdings were exempt from land reform (i.e., appropriation). In the countryside, Catholics were de facto exempt from performing corvéelabour and in some rural areas, it was claimed that Catholic priests led private armies against Buddhist villages. In 1957, Diệm dedicated the nation to the Virgin Mary.”

Back in the USSA:

“Privately, the White House was elated with the result of the coup. In a staff meeting the day after the coup, advisers praised the generals for what National Security Adviser Michael Forrestal called “a well executed coup, much better than anyone would have thought possible”. Rusk wanted the generals to publicly announce that one of the major reasons for the coup was Nhu’s “dickering with [the] communists to betray [the] anti-Communist cause”.”
 

A lie.

 
“The U.S. conveyed to the French that they felt that military success was much more probable with Diệm and Nhu gone, removing the need for peace talks with North Vietnam.”

Twenty days later another obstacle to war was removed in the U.S.A. on Nov. 22 1963.

Falling Stars



Falling Stars

“Falling Stars”

In 1939, three years after the value of money in Europe eclipsed that of the sun and the same year a whirl wind dragon pulled Dorothy Gale over the rainbow, Xu Beihong painted “Put Down Your Whip” while staying in Singapore. Wang Ying, the woman depicted in this 57” x 35” oil painting  was a friend of his who became a refugee street performer after the 1931 Japanese invasion of Manchuria . The painting last sold at auction  in 2007 for 9.2 million USD and is “western” in its execution. Read the rest of this entry »

Evil

corvus

I made a study of evil once, the history of the concept of good and evil that is; as every everyone ought;  fascinating too it was. Evil, it turns out, has not been around all that long, has evolved rapidly and will be around for a while yet, but not necessarily forever. Evil was invented by people to serve one purpose or another both conveniently to avoid the effort thinking and usefully in a struggle against others. Evil became necessary when someone wanted to take something from someone else. Language (the word) took a dichotomous turn toward the mandalic paradoxical and the goodness of god suddenly needed an opposite.   Sometime before 1229 the devil agrees to transcribe or translate a bible in which he also draws at that time, what we must therefore recognize as proper, a representation of himself; a picture of the devil in heavens basement, possibly planning his next caper.

CodexGigasDevil

Over the years the devil evolves to become a nasty piece of work in a runaway furnace in the basement of life. He and his (later development) minions, that I like to think of as a kind of military industrial outfit, become powerful tormenters of souls; of people; of towns; of cities; of races; of the entire world. He grows the wings and tail of a dragon. The devil shows up, without fail, where ever people want to swipe some gold hoard or other; whenever the little people need to be frightened out of their wits and wealth.

Maybe Yayoi Kusama was right about mirrors.

In Canada arts organizations form bureaucracies that mirror the government funding bureaucracies that feed them. In fact provincial and federal governments will only distribute funds to a mirror bureaucracy or, more rarely, an individual with a penchant for filling out forms. It’s all about accountability they say. Accounting, they say, to the taxpayer who must be assured that the Champaign and caviar artists aren’t quietly moving hundreds of millions in tax dollars into off shore bank accounts. Bureaucracies that mirror government assure the public, we must assume, while consuming the greatest proportion of the millions in government funding for the arts that the artist is kept honest and on average, according to Stats Canada, earns $4000 annually from their art. The average sum of $4000 is kept somewhat artificially high by those lucky few artists in better neighbour hoods that do receive government grants while the rest of the artists spend most of their time and energy in one job ghetto or another. Governments can also assure Canadians that many professional artists file tax returns for zero and or negative income years. Governments in Canada sometimes wonder out loud why Canada has failed to develop a distinct identity and fail also to notice that Canada has, in fact, a purely corporate identity. Governments in Canada get their mirrors from a fun house

New Modern Manifesto

For any who may have forgotten or those who never knew:

“In general, the term Modernism encompasses the activities and output of those who felt the “traditional” forms of art, architecture, literature, religious faith, social organization and daily life were becoming outdated in the new economic, social, and political conditions of an emerging fully industrialized world.”

200px-'Stormtroops_Advancing_Under_Gas',_etching_and_aquatint_by_Otto_Dix,_1924

“New Modernism,” on the other hand, addresses the new economic, social, and political conditions of a single emerging global military industrial dictatorship of the world. The global security state.
