General musings and thoughts related to reactionary aesthetics and the degenerate art of our Weimar-world. I have a particular interest in books, movies and TV (narrative forms of art) and believe we need alternative voices to the echo chamber that is modern criticism.

Degenerate Art is a Nazi term used to describe Modern art. From Wikipedia:

Such art was banned on the grounds that it was un-German, Jewish, or Communist in nature, and those identified as degenerate artists were subjected to sanctions. These included being dismissed from teaching positions, being forbidden to exhibit or to sell their art, and in some cases being forbidden to produce art.

In our Weimar-world, the status quo has flipped. Reactionary aesthetics are outcast. Old stories are disparaged. Only the postmodern survives. We must track this; we must change this.
