While German music and literature were luminous (think of…

Christmas present

A paradigm shift After posting ‘Christmas Eve’ and trying to capture some vitamin D by sunning myself on the roof of the house, I came up with an idea that reflects the point of view of this site. Yesterday I read David Irving’s article on The Unz Review where he talks about the sabotage that…
