    One thought on “The Executioner”

    1. “Wherever you find an altar, there civilization is to be found.”It is damn hard to get your hands on an English translation of Joseph de Maistre’s writings without spending a lot of money. Bookstores don’t have him; public libraries don’t have him; has a few editions, but they are long out of print and consequently very pricey. I’ve wanted so badly to read him for myself, given his reputation as archenemy of the Enlightenment and articulator of a continental throne-and-altar conserv [...]

    2. starts well but seems to lose focus, moving from the notion of human worth to well the night time or something

    3. A series of thought-provoking, albeit obsolete, eccentric chanting that portrays de Maistre's ideas concerning suffering and crime, evil and violence, and to find the proof of God in the horrific experience of human who kill (i.e. criminals, executioners and soldiers) and are killed.In addition to de Maistre's obsession about combining violence and prejudice with a certain version of Christianity, I take pleasure in reading his uncanny belief of a (European) civilization that, having been decayi [...]

    4. De Maistre's writting is beautiful, offering some insight into people's need for war and conflict and the intrinsic evils of the individual. To him order is everything, not freedom, much less reason. God made people suffer for a reason only he knows, but it's never undeserved.

    5. Long, dense, sometimes boring, but throughout there is a lot of interesting discussion. First dialogue is about why sometimes the good suffer and the wicked prosper, the nature of why there is no earthly justice, whether or not wicked people experience life the same way as good. The second is about crime, fear of punishment, executioners, soldiers. Third is about war and praying.

    6. The history of culture and tradition through the ages, the continuation of the church through time.That dreams may be used by the divine to communicate with us.The paradox of the soldier who kills innocent good men wantonly and is revered and the executioner who kills the guilty and is ill-regarded.
