New Articles
How Jews Saved The Ring
In the last update of this blog I posted the article “Richard Wagner Was Not an Anti-Semite.” I stand by my statements in that article. However, I should have entitled it “Richard Wagner Did Not Discriminate Against Individual Jews.” It is an established fact that he constantly spoke disparagingly against Jews, as a race. There is no excuse for his behavior, but the situation is not simple. Hopefully the article “How Jews Saved The Ring,” will help set the record straight.

Fricka and Other Goddesses
Fricka is in the same category as many other evil goddesses and queens. It is all part of the evolution of consciousness.

(In a previous article, Parsifal and 2012, I said that Crete was where Odysseus killed Cyclops. Since then I have become convinced this was not the case. This article will explain why I changed my mind.)
