These days, I have been on and off reading the marvelous book 《I Knew Hitler》by Kurt Lüdecke (a perfumed metrosexual turned fanatical National Socialist, who however was almost killed by Mexicans and by Hitler, but escaped to Tol Eressëa to write this book in 1937 CE).
His work which brings the shades of the past to life as if fiction has inspired me to check out the Darkest Hour game. And lo and behold, its mod[ification] Edge of Darkness includes such a symbolic song in its music list – the Requiem for a Dream from the 2000s, arranged along with the recognisable sound clips from the first and only anti-Christian revolution that once swept over Oiropa, that I was moved to scour cyberspace for the original, and preserve it. I failed, little wonder – but I have recreated that montage myself, and added two more finds to my BitChute channel (the middle song downloaded with the use of Tartube).
=A nuclear blast from the past – propaganda montages=
…The British, Chinese and United States governments have given the Japanese people adequate warning of what is in store for them. We have laid down the general terms on which they can surrender. Our warning went unheeded. Our terms were rejected.
Since then, the Japanese have seen what our atomic bomb can do. They can foresee what it will do in the future.
The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in the first attack to avoid insofar as possible, the killing of civilians. But that attack is only a warning of things to come. If Japan does not surrender, bombs will have to be dropped on her war industries and unfortunately thousands of civilian lives will be lost. I urge Japanese civilians to leave industrial cities immediately and save themselves from destruction.
I realise the tragic significance of the atomic bomb. Its production and its use were not lightly undertaken by this government. But we knew that our enemies were on the search for it. We know now how close they were to finding it. And we knew the disaster which would come to this nation and to all peace-loving nations, to all civilisation, if they had found it first. That is why we felt compelled to undertake the long and uncertain and costly labour of discovery and production. We won the race of discovery against the Germans.
Having found the bomb, we have used it. We have used it against those who attacked us without warning at Pearl Harbour, against those who have starved and beaten and executed American prisoners of war, against those who have abandoned all pretence of obeying international laws of warfare. We have used it in order to shorten the agony of war; in order to save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Americans. We shall continue to use it until we completely destroy Japan’s power to make war. Only a Japanese surrender will stop us. …
This entry is an artistic addendum to my latest illustrious retort against Dr. Robert Morgan’s Marxist worldview on the Unz Review.
The power of the atom bomb and the ovens of the KZ warm my eyes. The best of the 《war crimes》 of the Greatest War so far offer one a pique through the veil of the future. The Holocaust is an example of a religious war, of the like of the Mohammedans and Napoléon – and the only example since Julian of a Christian apostasy en masse. A blind won’t miss it. But Marxists will.
It is a pity the it reminds me of the ending to the song Furious Angels by Rob Dougan (2002-07-01) – a cacophony of shrieking metal. (One of the music pieces I greatly admire, alongside Akhnaten by Philipp Glass, Trauermarsch by Chopin and Armide by Lully – they make me feel light-weight as if in a dream, with my senses enhanced, quite a transcendental insomniac experience with a cup of juice at sunset all things considered – and I hate classical music.)
The cheese? The cringe never bothered me anyway.
I’ll believe in what the wind brings to me.
P.S. Song montages have always fascinated me. From Cobrak to the DPRK! The unity of form and sound! Die Deutsche Wochenschau can’t compare.
