Russia: Antifa punk killed by neonazis at The Exploited gig

A 27 years old anti-nazi punk was just killed in Russia after a gig with The Exploited. He was killed by neo-nazis after asking them to stop the sieg heils during Exploited show.

The Exploited deleted the post and released a statement pretending once again that they are against racism so it’s not their fault, but why does this band keeps attracting neo-nazis, racists and other similar assholes ? Maybe they should ask themselves why it keeps happenning to them instead of blaming it again on an extremist-leftish-antifa conspiration.

We’ve been saying for years that this band is shit and is very popular among neo-nazis (search the forum it’s been over talked with multiple facts brought up). It’s not the first The Exploited play in front of a crowd full of neo-nazis, a few years ago a couple of antifascists punks got stabbed by boneheads at an Exploited gig (in…

Buddhist Quote for the day

My foes will become nothing. My friends will become nothing. I, too, will become nothing. Likewise, all will become nothing. Just like a dream experience, whatever things I enjoy will become a memory. Whatever has passed will not be seen again.

The Molten Pour of Matter

Unreal Nature

…  the strength of the Rodinesque forms does not lie in the suggestion of bone, muscle and sinew. It resides in the more irresistible energy of liquefaction, in the molten pour of matter as every shape relinquishes its claim to permanence.

This is from the collection Other Criteria: Confrontations with Twentieth-Century Art by Leo Steinberg (2007; 1972). The following is from the essay ‘Rodin’ first published in 1963:

I had turned ten when Rilke’sRodin fell into my hands, and I still have the book, now held together by a rubber band. The text, which I read word by word, did not strike me as out of the ordinary; it was, I judged, the way grown-ups write about art. But the pictures at the back of the book — the sculptor’s works in sepia-toned photographs, some of them signed across the bottom ” Aug. Rodin” — these were pored over in…

How Much Body

Unreal Nature

… the sculptor’s questioning fingers keep asking how much body a weeping nymph needs for contrition.

This is from the collection Other Criteria: Confrontations with Twentieth-Century Art by Leo Steinberg (2007; 1972). Continuing from last week, the following is from the essay ‘Rodin’ first published in 1963:

… by never ceasing to ask where and how his sculptures can possibly stand, where in space they shall loom or balance, refusing to take for granted even the solid ground, Rodin unsettles the obvious and brings to sculpture that anxious questioning for survival without which no spiritual activity enters this century.

… The hulk of La Terre allows no fringe forms; it is finished without them because what Rodin represents is not really a human body, but a body’s specific gesture, and he retains just so much of the anatomical core as that gesture needs to evolve.

The drift of it…

佛教所说的“因果”论有哪些特点 演培法师 佛法所说的因果法则,是遍通一切的,就是宇宙间的万事万物,大至整个世界,小至一粒微尘,无不笼罩在因果的关系网中,没有因果关系的,可说一法也没有。不但佛法是这样讲,就是世人也有说到,世间一切法,各各有其因果。佛法虽纵横的广谈因果,但佛法是以有情生命为说明的中心,所以一论及因果时,总是侧重于有情所造的善恶因果,因为有了有情,自然就有世界,而且世界的清净或染污,完全系于有情业力的染净。如说:“世间为‘有情业力’所成的,为有情存在的必然形态,如有色即有空。所以虽差别而说为有情与世间,而实是有情的世间,总是从有情去说明世间”。 佛法所说的因果,既以有情为主体,而人类又为有情的中心,所以佛法所说的因果律,特别注重人类思想行为的因果法则,亦即是要人类有情,在这现实世间,如何做个好人,而时刻的注意自己的思想行为的活动,不要让他向不道德的方面发展。因此,我们起个念头,或者发一行为,就得想想这是否有益于自己或社会人群?假定出发于正确思想而采取的良善行为活动,就不妨循着这个路线走去,不然的话,损人而不利己,就不应当去做。所以吾人行为的或善或恶,既不是神意的规定,亦不是宿命的安排,更不是机运如此,而是由自己内心的选择,要怎样的去做,就怎样去做的,造因既可听由自己的选择,则为善为恶当然要由自己负责,而所受的苦乐自亦无用怨天尤人! 佛法的因果律,前面说过,异常的广泛。如以十法界说,六凡法界的众生,固然没有不在因果律中,造不同的因,受不同的果,就是出世的四圣法界,亦无不是由因果律而如此的。如说修四圣谛为因,而得声闻道果,修十二因缘为因,而得缘觉道果等。于十法界中,佛法是以佛法界为最高的,但崇高而伟大的佛陀,亦不能超越因果律的范围以外。我们常说:佛是真理的体悟者,自由的实现者,具有无量无边不可思议的殊胜功德,但这不是无因无缘自然得来的,而是经过长时期修持以及度化众生所得的结果。佛不特不能超越因果,亦复不能改变因果,所以神教者说有超越于因果关系之外的大神,当然为佛法所不能承认,而予以种种破斥了。 佛法所说的因果法则,还有一个最大的特色,就是因果通于三世的,不同有些学派,只承认有现在,不谈过去未来,或者说有现在与未来的二世因果,而不推论过去,这都不能开显因果的真实性。唯有通于三世的因果,在时间上如环之无端的无始无终,始能究竟的说明因果实相。如以吾人现实生命果报体为中心,这生命报体,是由过去的业力之所招感的,过去的行业或善或恶,影响现在生命的或苦或乐,即此苦乐的果报,又复表现各种行为的活动,创造新业以感未来的生命,未来生命的是好是不好,完全是看现在行为的表现是善是恶,所以吾人现在的一切行为活动,对于未来的新生命,有着很大的关系,不可稍为有点大意,而应积极的努力向善,以求获得美满的新生命! 因为因果通于三世,所以生命循环不息,在循环不息中,要想找个生命的开始,却又是绝对找不到的,所以佛法说为无始生命的狂流。众生于生命不息的奔放中,不能没有它的行为活动,有了行为的活动,就构成业力存在,其存在的业力,必然要感果的,若不感果,必然是造了其他业力混和其问,或者别造其他强有力的业因,使此所造之因应感之果,暂时不得生起。世人不了解这点,或以一时的得失,而疑因果无凭,或以愚迷的看法,以为报应有爽。这都是对于因果信心的不够,假定能够对于因果深信不疑,不但不会生起这样的疑念,而且一定会积极的去创造善因,和集善缘,以期生于善果。因此,在这世间做人,应本现前活泼泼的一念心,自由抉择所当行的善行。
