Judaism, Christianity and GermanyGerman Catholic Cardinal Opposes the Anti-Christian, Neopagan, and Hateful Aspects of Nazism

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Cardinal Faulhaber had been the Archbishop of Munich during the Nazi era. (My review is based on the original 1934 English-language edition.) This book was written soon after Hitler came to power. It is mainly theological, and has a refreshing depth and clarity that is usually absent amidst the superficiality and “theobabble” that characterize much of modern theology. >>more...

Jews and Revolution in Nineteenth-Century Russia (Paperback)

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The Jewish revolutionary activity, as discussed in this book, centered on revolutionary Populism. That based on Marxism was not to emerge until the 1890’s. (p. xii).

Interestingly, the anarchist Bakunin opposed the Jewish revolutionaries. He saw them as purveyors of “bourgeois socialism”, and followers of “German Jews”. (p. 25). >>more...
