Strasberg

The Kennedys, the Rat Pack, Monroe and her incredible erotic life - it's so fascinating and so bizarre and dramatic and deadly all of it - and Lee Strasberg wanted Marylin to play Lady Macbeth because he had a crush on her, and his wife was Marylin's pill keeper - and now it turns out that this tragic wildcat Marylin may have been an anthro - oh -

In olden days a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking
Now heaven knows
Anything goes

Good authors too who once knew better words
Now only use four letter words
writing prose
Anything goes

And Strasberg who made method acting his own and said that Stanislavsky was wrong and he himself was right, produced an army of superstars from his Acting Studio in New York while he detested Hollywood and fame because nobody could work with him as a film director - and after a piece by Checkov directed by him flopped completely in the West End of London in the mid-sixties, he crawled back to New York and did only studio again - until one of his latest most successful students, Al Pachino, persuaded his aging drama teacher, who had himself never acted but taught everyone else how it should be done, to accept the role of Hyman Roth in Godfather II. Well now, can the alleged master show what he's good for? Oh yes he could and he did and it made him a star and he and Hollywood embraced each other in the end - and how terrible it would have been, Lee said, if his film debut had gone wrong!

Lee Strasberg. A genious of the theater, the backbone of American dramatic art in the 20th century. Jewish. And here we have a little lesson in what anti-Semitism is about and how it works for progressive Jewish souls like Lee Strasberg. They were rehearsing a play at the studio, and Lee was walking down the street with a colleague of his who was also Jewish, and this weirdo jumps out and starts insulting him saying you dirty Jew this and you nasty Jew that, you Jew Jew Jew. And Lee's friend gets terribly provoked and is about to take a punch at the weirdo when Lee pulls him aside and walks down the pavement with him and asks, "Tell me, how did you feel when he said those things to you? How did you feel?" "I wanted to kill him!" his friend said. Lee: "That's good! That's exactly what I want in the play! Excellent! Remember that! That's what I want in the play!"

So you see, ladies and gentlemen, anti-Semitism is not a dry and boring intellectual text analysis game exhumed from old newspaper articles and reviews. It's emotional, it's passionate, it's anger and hostility, and for the artist - an opportunity for creativity and excellence. The hyperintellectuals cannot fathom that, because they think only with their brains and not with their hearts, they have no love and no anger, no passion. Wow, remember my knock-out girlfriend from 1974 when she thought I said "Jewry" instead of "jewelry", believing I was insulting her Jewishness? Oh man she was passionate, in anger and in love! How can the coldblooded reptiles digging for traces of anti-Semitism in century old newspapers understand that? How can they comprehend passion when they refuse to think with their hearts when doing their research? And how the hell can they understand anything about anti-Semitism and Jewish feelings if they don't have a clue about what it's like to have a living soul that reacts to things? How is it possible for such creatures to fathom how anthroposophists feel when they are bombarded with stinking garbage and ugly lies from a hate group - not based on passionate hate like Lee's friend who wanted to kill the weirdo who insulted Jews, but ice cold determined hostility - a hostility that becomes colder and colder every day as it sinks into the subterranean Ahrimanworld, hoping for a revival of Cold Fusion.

I'm not sure what you mean by all this. All the "standard definitions of racism" that can be easily found and understood, if you would only take the time to look and try to understand, are irrefutable facts that support the basis of my argument.The facts speak for themselves. And most historians agree that the separation of emotional nuances from the basic facts at hand constitutes the basic standards of quality historical research. The briefest textural analysis and the assimilation of the basic facts might clear up your confusion Tarjei
