Athens and Jerusalem – Gilad Atzmon at Reading International Festival (video)

Gilad Atzmon — gilad.co.uk Oct 25, 2017

In this talk (22.10.2017), Gilad Atzmon delves into the crucial dichotomy between Athens and Jerusalem. Atzmon argues that the dystopia in which we live is the direct outcome of a Jerusalemite set of ‘correct ideas’ over the Athenian search for reason, essence and logos. Tyranny of correctness, Identitarian divisiveness, the battle against historicity are symptoms of Jerusalemite thinking, they did little but derail the Western ethos. To rescue ourselves and what we believe to be our civilisation, Athens must be reinstated.
Despite some relentless Zionist institutional efforts to cancel the talk (CAA, BOD, JC, local rabbi etc) both RISC and the Local Council stood firm and made sure freedom and tolerance were sustained.
