Celan had read Heidegger beginning in 1951, and exclamation marks in his margin notes testify to an awareness that Heidegger had allowed his remarks on the "greatness" of [[Nazism|National Socialism]] in the 1953 edition of ''Introduction to Metaphysics'' to stand without further comment. Celan visited [[West Germany]] periodically, including trips arranged by Hanne Lenz, who worked in a publishing house in Stuttgart.{{fact|date=August 2014}} Celan and his wife Gisèle often visited Stuttgart and the area on stopovers during their many vacations to Austria. On one of his trips, Celan gave a lecture at the [[University of Freiburg]] (on July 24, 1967) which was attended by Heidegger, who gave Celan a copy of ''{{Lang|de|Was heißt Denken?}}'' (What does thinking mean?) and invited him to visit his work retreat "{{Lang|de|die Hütte}}" (the hut) at [[Todtnauberg]] the following day and walk in the [[Black Forest]].Celan accepted the invitation and even signed Heidegger's guest book at the famous "hut". [[File:Heideggerrundweg0009.JPG|thumb|left|Heidegger's stone-and-tile chalet clustered among others at Todtnauberg.]] The two walked in the woods. It's been reported that Celan impressed Heidegger with his knowledge of [[botany]] and Heidegger is thought to have spoken about elements of his press interview "Only a God can save us now", which he had just given to ''[[Der Spiegel]]'' on condition of posthumous publication. That would seem to be the extent of the meeting. "Todtnauberg" was written shortly thereafter and sent to Heidegger as the first copy of a limited bibliophile edition. Heidegger responded with no more than a letter of "perfunctory thanks." “August 1, 1967, Frankfurt am Main. Probably the single most discussed poem of this volume, it is the record of Celan’s visit to the philosopher Martin Heidegger at the latter’s Hütte in the village of Todtnauberg in the Black Forest on July 25, 1967, the day after the poet gave a poetry reading at the University of Freiburg in the presence of the philosopher. The poem was composed on August 1 in Frankfurt. In a letter of August 2 (PC/GCL, #536), written immediately upon his return to Paris, Celan tells his wife: “The reading in Freiburg was a major, an exceptional success: 1200 people listened to me with bated breath for an hour, then, after much applause, they listened to me for another fifteen minutes … Heidegger had approached me—The day after my reading I went with Mr. Neumann, Elmar’s friend, to Heidegger’s little hut [the Hütte] in the Black Forest. In the car, a serious dialogue ensued, I spoke with explicit words. Mr. Neumann, who witnessed the exchange, told me afterward that for him this conversation had an epochal character. I hope Heidegger will take up his pen and write a few pages in response..." <ref>Celan, Paul. “Breathturn into Timestead.” Farrar, Straus and Giroux.</ref> iBooks. {{Paul Celan}} [[Category:1970 poems]] [[Category:German poems]] [[Category:The Holocaust]] [[Category:Poetry by Paul Celan]]

Notes to Use for future articles ONE[edit]

“The Delicate Prey,” his great Moroccan story of the 1940s, [...] represents all the elements upon which Bowles’s reputation rests. It is also one of the most traditionally structured of his short prose works. Perfect in sound and detail, “The Delicate Prey” seems to gather itself out of dark magic, half-recognized music echoing over the reaches of a space both fearful and lyrical. Its lovely sinister light winks from a quarter where no light belongs [...] To thrust the fortunes of a fictive creation upon the reader in the most intense manner possible is, of course, the fundamental goal of fiction. In this matchless, classic story, with its lovely structure and delectable sound, Bowles does it as well as it has ever been done.”.[2]

  • notes for Death of the Liberal Class:
    • Progress is made in incremental changes; we need to look to our own history for models, the Abolitionist, the Populist, the New Deal, Civil Rights, and Anti-War movements all achieved partial success but left many things unresolved. All successful movements involve wide coalitions and long term determined actions. The fate of the world depends on successful resistance to late stage Finance Capitalism here in the U.S.,
    • The rise of corporate-backed organizations and think tanks designed to veer every public institution away from traditional liberal democratic values has dismantled our civil society, she said

  • Barrett Watten:


  • My comment on proposed amendment re: undisclosed paid editing on Wikipedia:

#Strongly Support. I think it is vital to place this issue out: front & center. Many of the recent comments are cogent and I share in them. And although Wikipedia cannot stop the paid "lobbying/slant/corporate troll wars on the truth," that shouldn't keep us from voicing our dissent. There should not be undisclosed paid editing practices on Wikpedia. When this has occurred, then users, editors, and contributors need to know this. We can not (and will not) bury our heads in the sand and pretend it doesn't happen (even if, at the same time, we are skeptical that any "regulations" can really and truly stop this from happening). The fact is that there is a war on the "truth," and there will continue to be a war. And yes, it will continue here on Wikpedia just as there continues to be the insidious (and ubiquitous) practice of Public Relations and business-sponsored "think-tanks" and "Foundation" lackeys "buying off the mainstream media and web journals with ads and threats of pulling ads." And of course there's no way, within the current "system," to completely stop or eliminate this practice of undisclosed "paid contributions." In fact, I don't believe this can stop unless there's some kind of collapse or systemic break with the current world-system which is a Capitalist world-system (see the "Immanuel Wallerstein" page on Wikipedia for more information). So for now let's do what we can do to limit what the "lobbying/corporate" shills can do with the truth. After all, there is a "human right" to information (in fact, September 28 is the International Day devoted to that right; and that is an 'observance' that we recognize as happening everyday on Wikipedia). But I digress. I vote here to "strongly support" this amendment because we must do whatever we can to make it difficult for the "shills" (and that's what you are when you're paid to either "edit" the truth or otherwise traffic in ideology & propaganda on behalf of 'special interests' and undisclosed agendas. Even if your motives are well meaning or done in 'good faith.' That's not up to you. It's up to us. That's up to the Wikipedia community to decide). Finally, we traffic in the real world, we partake of the truth. We also must, as a "commons" and a community on Wikipedia, pay attention to how the truth is being manipulated and make every effort to prevent the lackeys and shills from "buying off Wikipedia's compendium of knowledge and reinforcing [an] outdated orthodoxy that represents their interests, not the truth."

Removed the "Few people believe" line[edit]

I removed the line suggesting that "few people believe" a few radical German professors could . . . If it was a quote from a critic of Buchanon's views or something, that's fine or if it was referenced. But, while I personally think it's probably accurate, it doesn't seem appropriate for an encyclopedia entry.--

Thanks for creating a better WP article over desire to express opinion. If we could find a source that dates as one of the earliest uses of the term cultural Marxism, that may also be a good addition. We have ideas of what the term means today, but who was the first to use it, and in what context? The earliest document I have been able to find is from 1967. Here's an exerpt:

"Although a great many American intellectuals were influenced by Marxism at one point or another in the 1930s, one of the most important group of writers and critics among them were those who became associated with the Partisan Review. Briginating in the communist movement early in the 1930s the journal shared the interests and desires of other radical publications of its generation, but it was exceptional for its tenacity, for its cornmitment to radicalism and to the integrity of art. Its history reflects both the American intellectual's early enthusiasm for Marxism, and the gradual evolution of new responses as the events of the 1930s dimmed the prospects for radical change.

"Cultural Marxism was most pervasive during the 1930s in New York literary circles, particularly among the generation of critics which came of age during the early years of the depression. Every new literary generation to some extent rejects the ideas of its predecessors, but the economic crisis which served in so many minds as the symbol of a coming cultural decline reinforced the desire to discard old systems. The Great Crash of 1929, wrote Edmund Wilson, was 'for us almost like a reveling of the earth in preparation for the Day of Judgment7.1 It emphasized the need for revolutionary thinking, for a drastic accommodation of ideology to what was considered a new reality."

future story[edit]


other sandboxes[edit]

] Just to recap (and to make the point as clear as possible): it will not work to put Hedges' so-called political beliefs into the first sentence of the lede. That's because it would be necessary to define how these terms are being used (ie., 'liberal', 'socialist', 'anti-capitalist' at the very beginning of the article (and certainly in the main body of this page). This is according to the Wikipedia style sheet. The lede introduces what will be restated in the main body of the article. However, the last sentence of the lede states that Hedges describes himself as a socialist. This is documented here with a citation. He really does describe himself as having that particular political affiliation. Once again: those editors who are concerned about stating Hedges political affiliations in the first sentence of the lede are giving this page a bias and slant that will not work here, at least if it is put into the first sentence. There are no political parties in the US called the 'Liberal' party or the "anti-capitalist" party. Hedges is a US journalist who lives and works in the US. Therefore, if we introduce Hedges political affiliations we have to talk about 'viable' political parties that exist in the US and are part of the mainstream. The mainstream political parties are Democrats, Republican, & Independents. And then Libertarians or Tea Party affiliations are below that in influence and power. Finally, there are marginalized political parties, such as Socialist Party, the Green Party. These have no real, sustained political influence. In fact, these marginal political affiliations amd parties have never ('*never*) assumed, nationally, the formal mechanisms of mainstream political power in the United States.etc.. (I'm not unaware of Eugene Debs, which is an "exception" that proves the rule). So then why the insistence on giving a label that is inconsequential to mainstream (ie., liberal, socialist, Green, anti-capitlist) US political discourse? That being the case, it has no plac here on Wikipedia. And yet these editors want to make the claim that this is 'not' bias or is NPOV when including this bit of esoteric information (socialist? Who cares? What is that?) that most readers won't recognize or understand? And yet this article is still keeping 'socialist' in the lede here, in the concluding sentence Why the insistence to put his affiliation into the first sentence of a wikipedia biography of a living person?Christian Roess (talk) 17:10, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

“My master's thesis in 1954 was entitled "McCarthyism and the Conservative." My Ph.D. dissertation in 1959 was entitled "The Role of Voluntary Associations in the Nationalist Movements in Ghana and the Ivory Coast." It was later published as The Road to Independence: Ghana and the Ivory Coast (1964). At the first ISA meeting that I attended in Stresa, Italy, in 1959, 1 spent my time at the meetings of the Committee on Political Sociology. Later I attended one of the conferences of the SSRC Committee in Frascati, Italy, in 1964, and contributed a paper to the volume resulting from the conference: "The Decline of the Party in Single-Party African States" (1966).”

When I arrived in Madison in 1967, even several of the old socialist pamphlets in the Wis State Historical Society had “Gaby Kolko” scrawled on the title page. He donated when leaving campus.He was a major theorist of what came to be called Corporate Liberalism, the corporate control of the liberal agenda, but he was also a very major historian of the Vietnam War and its assorted war crimes, etc. With a small handful of other writers, William Appleman Williams at the top of the list, Kolko pointed away from the Cold War liberalism of Arthur Schlesinger Jr and others, then dominant in the historical profession, who worked quietly with the CIA while trumpeting their fidelity to free ideas. These Cold Warriors had effaced the traditions of Charles Beard, and Kolko along with Williams restored Beard, the best of both Charles and Mary Beard, in the process.
