Just a couple weeks ago, I found a 1942-43 translation of this honourable aristocrat's memoirs and read it in just four days. A proud Austrian, war veteran, Freikorps fighter and one of the key figures in Austrofascism, he rapidly covers his life up to the 1920s and then narrates the bitter political struggle between National Socialists and Austrian nationalists all the way to their demise, offering insights into his era, strong banter against North Germans and even some hilarious moments.

I'll do a detailed write-up of the entire book soon for the handful of you that remain here, but I'm a bit busy at the moment.

Otherwise, what have you been reading, /int/?

pic related is an actual photograph I've taken to showcase the books awful state.
So, on to Von Starhemberg's worldview:

His notion of European civilization is centered on Catholicism and the Roman Empire -anything north of them, as he mentions, is barbarism. He thus despises North Germans, criticizing their accent, their way of dressing and military cerimonies, publicly stating to North Germans themselves that Austria already had an advanced Christian European civilization while the northeast Germans were still speaking Slavic dialects and worshiping their pagan gods, and even calling them barely Germanized Slavs. He contrasts the North and South German mindsets by their Freikorps organization -the Bavarian and Austrian Freikorps only took away a tiny portion of liberty from their members, as south Germans are "individualistic and democratic", whereas the northern Freikorps, with their authoritarian mindset, enslave their members to the collective.

His notion of the Austrian identity followed a multi-ethnic Habsburg-centered paradigm: Horthy is "Austrian", Venice is "Austrian", Masaryk is "Austrian" and so on. He emphasized the bonds of architecture, mindset, religion, monarchical loyalty and others shared between the Balkan nationalities, and thus, desired a Danubian alliance or political-economic bloc of sorts, a project he could only find sympathy for among Hungarians. This didn't mean he rejected the importance of ethnic divisions, but just that he valued some cultural and religious factors above them -a position far more traditionalist than ethnic nationalism itself.

He was sometimes critical of some aspects of his beloved Austrian culture -most notably, its bureaucratic slowness. It is, however, useful to him at least once -immediately after the Heimatwehr's aborted coup attempt, he slept on a friend's home, woke up, saw the house was surrounded by police, and returned to sleep. He was only woken up a few hours later by the police captain, who deemed it inconvenient to drag him so early in the morning, and even allowed him to have breakfast before arresting him! "These things only happen in Austria", he wrote.

His political views were typical of fascism, and Catholic fascism in particular. His aims were shared with older traditionalists -a conservative Christian society under its legitimate monarchy- but his means were innovative and saw no issue in adapting revolutionary methods and embracing a bold and youthPost too long.

Despite his dislike for democracy, he was wary of trying to seize power by force. As he mentions, doing so carries a very high risk of failing and giving one's opponents a reason for outlawing your activities. He thus preferred subverting the system from within, as Hitler did.

If anyone's curious over any part of the book and wants to hear more, please tell me and I'll offer a more in-depth description of what is told.

Can anyone with access to Austrian libraries and bookstores (online and offlien) search for the complete German edition (Memoiren, Amalthea-Verlag, 1971)? I'd be immensely grateful if I could get to know the gaps in his first draft (WWI, his close collaboration with Hitler in the early 20s and so on).

I remember actually visiting 8gag /say/ at the time this thread was made and posting a farewell from Depreschan. After I mentioned it was comfy, a local made a long, autistic rant against the world "comfy".

Now their board is more rekt than ours.

I don't even know if I'm supposed to feel sad or amused at all of this.

I'm interested in Mikhail Nesterov's works ever since I knew them a few months ago. The lightning usually makes me think of the last agonizing moments of afternoon, when the Sun has already set, cold winds blow but it's still bright enough to see the landscape. Messing around with GIMP, I've noticed they look better with higher saturation and lower brightness. And the melancholic Orthodox mysticism and yearning for a holier life are completely different from the art I'm used to see.

Some illustrations from Ivan Bilibin, about russian folk and fairy tales.


Second pic is really neat, what is the story behind it?


Yeah I really like the glowing skulls. Here is the story : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasilisa_the_Beautiful

The third image is from the same tale.

I've come to the conclusion that discussion is a much easier fuel for this board's activity than merely posting content.

But discuss about what?

Hi guys,
I am depressed, and I want to learn russian. Guess I am at the right place.
I have learned the alphabet, and I also know a few sentences. Some of them are not very useful, like «  У меня понос » or « ты краcивaя как русалка », but I’m still learning.

Pic related, it’s a Christ painted by one of my favorite russian painter, Kramskoi. I think he feel quite bad because this world is fucking garbage.

>Guess I am at the right place.
/Б/ is actually the best board for that, as few Russophones stay here.

I kinda wish I could learn Russian, but for my third language I still have to learn either German, or, as an alternative, French. French seems easier to learn, but doesn't allow me to enjoy German neofolk and Romanticist poetry, which are a large part of what draws me to the idea of learning a new language.

>this world is fucking garbage.

Well, that's a fundamental theme within the Gospels.

Btw, you should post in the paintings thread if you have more from Kramskoi.
