Hanns Heinz Ewers tells a short story of a boy who was so unnatural of disposition as to take a special delight in people sick with elephantiasis. Our "European intellectuality" finds itself in an identical condition today which, through Jewish pens, worships the Kokoschka, Chagalls and Pechsteins as the leaders of the Art of the future. Features of degeneracy are already apparent, as, for instance, with Schwalbach, who dares representing Jesus as flat footed and bow legged.alfred rosenberg
Such words as spontaneity, sincerity, gratuitousness, richness, enrichment words which imply an almost total indifference to contrasts of value have come more often from their [the surrealists’] pens than words which contain a reference to good and evil. Moreover, this latter class of words has become degraded, especially those which refer to the good, as Valéry remarked some years ago. Words like virtue , nobility , honor , honesty , generosity , have become almost impossible to use or else they have acquired bastard meanings; language is no longer equipped for legitimately praising a man’s character.Simone Weil
