Eid Mubarak, fellow /lit/izens. Now that Ramadan is finished, I can finally return to this filthy website again. Just wanted to say that the Gospel of Matthew is the greatest Greek drama of all time. It has everything: conflict, tension, mystery, profound discourse, betrayal, tragedy, a climax that has you on the edge of your seat, and a beautiful, captivating ending that has you reeling from it eons after you've read it. "Matthew" (or whoever he was) was obviously knowledgeable of Greek plays because he used many of their tricks to captivate his koine audience.

>> No.18231500

Places like 4chan should be avoided or I should say, become toxic to ones soul if done in excess. /lit/ however has some legitimate discussions from time to time, so its likley permissable to browse. Ramadan is a time for purification, so its benefical to engage in prayer, reading Quran and being around family instead of browsing imageboards.

The death of John the Baptist is one tragic element and the torture of possibly the greatest Hero of all time is another. I wouldn’t say it’s a tragedy for obvious reasons but it shares many of their elements like the usual fall from grace and abuse of the honorable protagonist. You can definitely see the similarities with other Greek epics like how at the beginning of the play, Jesus’s genealogy is presented to be that of honor and prestige along with the circumstances that lead to his birth, setting the stage for the new ultimate Hero of the Greeks.

My argument is sounder than most takes here. Read this description by Aristotle of what a tragedy is from Poetics

“Tragedy, then, is an imitation of an action that is serious, complete, and of a certain magnitude; in language embellished with each kind of artistic ornament, the several kinds being found in separate parts of the play; in the form of action, not of narrative; through pity and fear effecting the proper purgation of these emotions. By 'language embellished,' I mean language into which rhythm, 'harmony' and song enter. By 'the several kinds in separate parts,' I mean, that some parts are rendered through the medium of verse alone, others again with the aid of song.”

If you’ve read Matthew, you’d know that the coming tragedy is what moves the plot. All the episodes of Matthew are overshadowed by this tragedy. Aristotlean tragedy has all-encompassing unity and that is precisely what you see in Matthew’s narrative. The plot is developed through conflict and it is through this conflict that you see the characters develop in kind.

Hear me out, okay?

European governments are currently doing the greatest 300 IQ move of all time. You see, since the World Wars and the ensuing collapse of the European world order, the "native" Europeans have become a decadent, self-hating group. They have no pride in themselves and their culture, and they have rejected religion. This leads to low birthrates, an unpatriotic society, and a host of other issues. The problem is that White Western Europeans are so consumed by this cycle of self-hatred that they cannot break free of it. If they remain the majority, European nations will sink into the dirt.

So, what can be done? What the European governments have decided to do is to import Arabs. This group has pride, it has a religion, it has above-replacement birthrates. Once they become a majority, they will make their new countries strong again. Look at it this way. Currently, Germany with a White majority has no ambitions of regaining Alsace or East Prussia. But with an Arab/Turk majority, the German nation would look to regain what was taken from them. They would become a powerful country once more. The same would play out in France, the Netherlands, etc. In this way, the various European nations will regain their pride and power.

I think this is inevitable. Whites are too weak and self-hating to stop it, and Arabs greatly desire it. My only hope is that religious minorities (Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, etc) are not persecuted in this future Europe.

Unlike the Indo-Europeans who never used derivatives of the Phenician alphabet, who didn't took agriculture from the Near East, who didn't learn art by imitating the Egyptians...
Also Arabs and especially Hebrew have connections with Semitic and Sumerian culture of the Babylonian and Akkadian regions that far predate the earliest days of the first Persian empire.

I believe the anon above is right, you are merely repeating 19th century propaganda to cover for a lack of historical knowledge. The Norse people are cultured since ancient times but you, I'm afraid, are almost entirely uncultured.

>Unfortunately I really like the Brotherhood/Unity aspect of Islam whereas these people are unbearable
Nothing wrong with acknowledging that, try to get in contact with an imam and ask him for guidance. Most religious communities have a strong cultural slant too. You can see it in my country when muslim blacks try to date muslim arabs. In theory the parents cannot protest on basis of race alone, but honour killings, though not islamic, are a common thing.

Try to find common ground with muslims from other cultures, is what I'd suggest, but I'm not muslim and generally have no interest in islam. That being said, all what I wrote here was genuine. God bless anon.
