Our father-killing Western culture:
from cultural patricide
to the murder-suicide of the West


art and not art

What follows may sound like a strange claim. Generation after generation, there has been widespread applause for cultural patricide in the West - the denigration of earlier art works and art styles. My claim: That may have made us extra vulnerable to accepting, even applauding, the murder-suicide of the West.

Please listen.

I'm writing because I just had a realization about the repeated Western (non-physical) killing of the fathers, generation after generation - and about how dangerous this almost certainly is for the West.

Here are some memories from art history. The Impressionists were rejected by the public which appreciated the art of the previous generation of artists. The Impressionists correctly rejected that earlier art, and eventually conquered, triumphed. The Expressionists were likewise rejected, and likewise eventually conquered, triumphed. The abstract artists were again likewise rejected, and likewise again conquered, triumphed.

It goes on. Artists discovered Japanese prints and later African art works, and used elements. Now this is widely rejected, condemned, as cultural appropriation.

And here is my memory from a theatre class. All previous theatre was rejected as no longer fitting for the present. All that was considered current was Living Theatre (self-named as such), which in my experience meant walking around like a zombie, no expression on my face.

A friend at about the same time desired to be an illustrator. Illustration was dead, he was informed by his college art program. He quit. He was admitted by the only American art school still teaching illustration, which is quite a difficult skill.

A couple of years ago, I went to a major exhibition at a major Canadian museum by a major present-day artist. The art work: huge canvases, perhaps 15 feet by 15 feet (5 meters by 5 meters), in 2 shades of yellow ochre. A flat background in one shade. A stripe or circle or bull's eye in the other shade.

This means that the art establishment applauds this artist, art students are taught to applaud this artist, the government funds exhibits of this artist.

I'm not against this artist. I am against the common denigration of previous art. And I'm against the pushing of the current art by government and education as well as a major chunk of the art establishment.

Further and much more important: I consider cultural patricide (the widespread denigration of earlier art works) as dangerous to our society, our culture, the West.


Because it encourages the acceptance of the murder-suicide of the West - the murder of the past as having no value, the denigration of a complex and evolving heritage.

The West doesn't have the widely accepted rights and freedoms because the Magna Carta was destroyed and supplanted, but because the Magna Carta was seen to be missing some rights and freedoms - like for women. So it has been modified - not trashed - repeatedly.

Here is John Robson, PhD, with Celebrating the Magna Carta Legacy:

Modifying, improving - that's very different from destroying, demolishing, and installing, for instance, a Communist Utopian Fantasy (totalitarian dictatorial disasters with millions murdered, time after time) or an Islamic Caliphate (no Western human rights, no freedom of speech, no freedom of religion, no equal rights for women and men).

art and not art

But in the West we're "educated" (brain-washed, brain-wrecked) to be for the destroy strategy, instead of to be very wary of it.

There's so much to value. It's time to celebrate, for instance, the Magna Carta legacy.

PS. Another thought. In Freud's Oedipus Complex, the son falls in love with the mother, WANTS to kill the father, but learns that, to avoid castration, he must find a woman of his own. Very different from the son successfully destroying the father and taking over the culture.

PPS. For many more self-portraits by Rembrandt - over 3 decades of self-portraits, from late twenties to 63, here is a link:

Western culture: generations of patricide.
A small step: from cultural patricide
to silence in the face of
the murder of the West.

Sonya Jay Porter

Elsa is an incredible person, writing the truth for us all on so many subjects - political correctness, the climate, the UN, the EU (or rather, the European Dictatorship) and also on the subject which is one of the most important at the moment - the spread of Islamisation throughout the world.
         May I recommend that you watch the excellent cartoon she has created for young school children on the teachings of Islam.
         And here she goes again, with yet something more! Whatever it is about, whatever she creates, I know it will be worth watching and reading - there is so little genuine Truth out there in the public media, but Elsa is a True Truth Sleuth!

Sonya Jay Porter, who for 25 years has been working with UKIP, the UK Independence Party, to get her country out of the European Union


Gordon Miller

Elsa is a missionary for truth. I have had the pleasure of knowing Elsa for many years now and have admired her steadfast campaign to expose the truth on a range of topics, but for the most part Islam. She has interviewed literally dozens of experts who have studied and had firsthand experience with Islam. All of these, and much more, can be heard on her website. Elsa believes, and I agree, that only when there is open discussion and public debate about the tenets of Islam (i.e. free speech) will the world be free from the Islamic Jihad. In other words, “The truth shall set you free.” Elsa is the ”Truth Sleuth.”

Gordon Miller, long time environmental conservationist, believer in climate science history, challenger of climate models, dissenter on Canada's 1982 Constitution, believer in the dignity of the individual (i.e. the essence of Judeo-Christian values) and advocate of minimal government at the federal level.


Nicole D

Elsa is a spiritual healer and a brilliant writer. She is also for me a pillar of strength and a voice of reason.
          And her music videos are a reminder that there is a beauty in this world too! My favorite clip is There is No More Islam.

Nicole Davidoff, passionate advocate of human rights and freedoms, passionately against any ideology that is totalitarian, like Islam and Communism, cat lover.


Ramachandra Abhyankar

I came to know about Dr. Elsa Schieder ("Elsa") through her interviews with Islam experts Robert Spencer, Bill Warner, Citizen Warrior,  and others. Many people were introduced  to Elsa through her highly informative video for children, about Islam. Through her work, Elsa has helped clear the confusion surrounding Islam, making it possible for people to learn the truth about Islam.
         Islam is just one area; Elsa has sought the truth in many areas, and has a unique talent to clarify issues and motivate people.
          I am especially indebted to Elsa for making me aware of the Islamic Doctrine of  Al-Wala Wal-Bara, which I now know to be the key for understanding Islam. Even after studying several books on Islam, I was not aware of the Islamic doctrine of Al-Wala Wal-Bara. This key doctrine is at the heart of Islam, and makes the other Islamic doctrines of Islam, like Jihad and Sharia, easily comprehensible.
          Elsa has also taught me to not give up even when confronted by obstacles, such as the now ubiquitous censorship by the media.
          Elsa is an inspiration and  an example for all seekers of truth!

Ramachandra B. Abhyankar lives in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA. He is Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Indiana State University, in Terre Haute, Indiana USA.


Mary Andrew

When I came upon Elsa's work (like her great kid's video), I had educated myself on what Islam is, had been galvanised to protest by the horrific slaughter of children in the Manchester bombing, and was also trying to get the truth out on a lot of Facebook sites. But I felt isolated, downcast and daunted by the mountainous size of the problem. I have always been utterly anti-racist, but my friends thought I had become a bigot. I didn't know what to do. 
         Elsa's amazing, inspirational work has become a beacon of light to me, and her friendship has furnished me with the encouragement and support (and occasional rap over the knuckles!) which I desperately needed to become tougher, more confident, and much more active. Moreover, she has introduced me to new friends in the movement (against Sharia, and in support of British sovereignty - connected issues), from whom I am constantly learning, and with whom I can work, and protest, much more effectively. I no longer feel alone; united we stand!  Thank you, Elsa, so much for all you have done to embolden me, and nurture my development. I am truly grateful! 

Mary Andrew recently co-founded a local branch of the new and fast-growing For Britain political party, to work for a voice in mainstream politics. She's just been invited to write for the For Britain website. She still regularly attending protests, now along with great new friends.


Jeff Himmelberger

I admire Elsa’s life-long commitment to activism through ever vigilant truth sleuthing, and I'm thrilled that her next series of interviews will tell untold stories of activists who've been ignored by mainstream media. I'm hopeful that Elsa’s provocative interviews will stretch personal comfort zones, reach wide audiences, and break through brick walls.
          Elsa’s idea of interviewing people who do sustained truth-telling is perfectly aligned with who she is, and these interviews will be AWESOME!

Jeff Himmelberger is a left-leaning liberal from Massachusetts who fortuitously enjoys a deep and enduring friendship with Elsa. For the past fifteen years Elsa has been challenging Jeff’s assumptions and expanding his hard-wired thinking habits.


Elaine Black

I really want to thank you, Elsa, for your deep dedication and endless hard work in trying to right the wrongs. I don’t follow all of your activities, but am very aware of the bigger picture in what you do and know that your heart works to make the world a better place. You deserve every accolade that may never come your way - just know that so many of us think this.

Elaine Black has always believed in ‘principles’: Truth is based on principle and on facts. The great English painter Francis Bacon whose work is often considered controversial for it’s painful distorted imagery, once said "people tend to be offended by facts, or what used to be called truth." These are the tenets of my belief, and to that end, I have run a ’newswire’ service for over a decade to allow others to formulate their knowledge based on exposure to truth and facts rather than lies and distortions.
