Euthanizing the Homeless? It’s a Start
Very interesting listen, painting a three-dimensional, mysterious and even tortured picture of Mr. Bowden. His penury is something I myself was not aware of but can easily identify myself with as an aspiring artist, and it must be said that his life, breakdown and untimely demise seems strangely fitting for a Nietzschean like him. His spirited and sometimes manic rhetoric managed to carry his ideas and intellectualism further than many others of a similar caliber, probably because he lived in his own sort of heightened reality. The disorganized weaving in and out of subjects that Eddy Butler describes was indeed noticeable but never off-putting, to me it was more a sign that Bowden was tuned into a wider consciousness of ideas which frequently overlapped and got in the mix somehow, and it’s something you don’t question.
This however is a topic worth discussing on a serious and down to earth note. This movement too should acknowledge the importance of mental health, as well as physical, all the more so since we are politically, socially and even culturally and racially isolated in many ways. If this movement, whatever its current state, is to thrive, we will nurture one another and create networks of support. We will love one another and look out for one another and take an interest in one another’s well-being. Each of our lives are immensely valuable because of our fight and what we believe in, and the loss of Mr. Bowden demonstrates just how such losses can hurt the movement.
One of the most interesting podcasts I’ve heard ever. Partly probably because both Eddie and Adrian were active during the years I was too, but I enjoyed the jokes and humour as well as the content.
This paints quite a grim portrait of Mr. Bowden, considering that he is a tragic figure to begin with.
I have to ask – Is that one of Dr Johnson’s firearms in that famous photo ?
This is a very worthwhile project. Thanks to CC for starting it.
He straddled the fine line between genius and madness. Although a brilliant orator who has helped draw many to the white nationalist cause, his catastrophic neglect of his own economic, physical and psychological well-being should serve as a warning to us all who luxuriate excessively in ideas and abstractions.
