We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
37:1 Do not fret because of the wicked; do not be envious of wrongdoers, 37:2 for they will soon fade like the grass, and wither like the green herb. 37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so you will live in the land, and enjoy security. 37:4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 37:5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. 37:6 He will make your vindication shine like the light, and the justice of your cause like the noonday. 37:7 Be still before the LORD, and wait patiently for him; do not fret over those who prosper in their way, over those who carry out evil devices. 37:8 Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath. Do not fret--it leads only to evil. 37:9 For the wicked shall be cut off, but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land.
Remodernism revives aspects of modernism, particularly in its early form, and follows postmodernism, to which it contrasts. … In 2000, Billy Childish and Charles Thomson, founders of the stuckism art movement, instigated remodernism with a manifesto, Remodernism, in an attempt to introduce a period of new spirituality into art, culture and society to replace postmodernism, which they said was cynical and spiritually bankrupt.
This seems somewhat consistent with today’s Lectionary.
Yes, that's what I'm wondering about. That's the book one comes to in following the links from Sarah Hoyt's post on Instapundit. This quote from the book, at the webpage that you and Sarah linked to, caught my attention:
Art is a more enduring and vital human experience than the power games of a greedy and fraudulent ruling class. The managers crashed the culture in pursuit of their agenda. They defend their usurped authority and privileges with doublethink, misdirection, and intimidation. Their time has run out. Reality is crashing back through their carefully constructed facades, and a time of reckoning has come. Enduring changes start in the arts. Remodernism defeats Postmodern desecration.
I had not previously heard of the book (published November 2018) or Richard Bledsoe. Anyone here familiar with him or read the book?
I am thinking that remodernism may contain themes consistent with things ranging from modern political movements to the writings of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
"Anyone have any thoughts on “remodernism”?" I do. It may be "re" (as in rediscovery) but it's not modern. It's just a recycle of Dadaism which was all the rage in pre-Nazi Germany. Their motto: "Art is Shit".
