AN INVITATION TO THE INQUIRY INTO A WITCHHUNT



THE BELOW INVITATION HAS BEEN SENT OUT TO PARTICIPATE IN AN ONLINE FORUM AT



http://handke-yugo.blogspot.com/ 


I am proposing to do an online inquiry, a post mortem, on the two matters in the subject
line of this communication, two related subjects, the second arising out of the former,
at  the
developing  http://handke-yugo.blogspot.com/
and wanted to ask you to join in or forward this communication to
those who you think  might be interested in:
[1] A narrowly focused discussion on how it came to be that the Serbians and then Milosevic
were made responsible for the disintegration and the great majority of war crimes committed there; while
 each of the formers parts of the federation were encouraged in their nationalist longings but for the Serbians.

For both my points I use as a focus the following observation of Noam Chomsky's:


"The nefarious atrocities regularly elicit religious

fervor, dramatic posturing, baseless claims to inflate

 them as much as possible - and fury if anyone does

not blindly join the parade, but seeks to determine

the truth, cites the most reputable authorities
exposes the innumerable fabrications.

The common reaction to such treachery is an impressive

torrent of deceit. There is an instructive record,

quite well documented in many cases. The reasons are

 not hard to explain. The topic should be pursued

systematically, but that is unlikely, obviously."

[
2] why was Peter Handke,  [a] as a the person, and then [b] his writing showered and continues to be with such
obloquy for having a different view of this matter, and writing about it in a language of his own.
 

Is this a question of mass psychology, the mass in this case being the bien pensant - in France, Germany, the UK and here in the US ?

 I am launching it now herewith after having put a fair amount of primary material on to the blog
and beginning it with a decimation of what I regard as a typical piece of writing on the subject of both Yugoslavia and Peter Handke, it is a review of "JOURNEY TO THE RIVERS [JUSTICE FOR SERBIA] by Davied Rieff and appeared in the L.A. Times Book Review which at that timewas edited by Steve Wasserman.

Let me summarize my own, at this point, fairly firmly held positions - elaborated on line at 
http://handke-yugo.blogspot.com/ -  on both points,  as I have arrived at them after considerable thought and investigation, in the case of personal acquaintance and deep involvement and knowledge of his work, going back nearly fifty years.

[A] pertaining to the history of the disintegration, of what I regard as having been a tinderbox in the making, in part due to the economic warfare conducted by the Reagan Administration; where the assigning of blame however, so I hope, will give way to what an analyst calls "understanding"  - i.e. I am examining a "cold case" - that dog is dead - how did he die - why does the corpse  look like that - why did so many peoples whose "goodness" and good intentions I do not question [though well I might] arrive at those conclusions [I mean I know some of the answers of course, or at least think I do] and why did they become so vengeful to anyone who disagreed with their position. and if they were editors of magazines, the new york review, the new republic, the ny times magazine to mention only a few, close their pages to disagreement, including their letter to the editors space.

[2], how Handke, who took a very different opposing tack to the general humanity hyenas,
and refused to talk their language,  then became as it were "collateral" damage;
 I wish that Handke himself were St. Francis and pure
as the driven snow, but that is not the case either, since being in the opposition,
being righteous in his own particular
way invariably involves exhibitionistic, self-displaying motives.,
and his public comments, as compared to his writings, manifested rather uncivilized manners,
 he of course is/ was scarcely the only one
so motivated. good girl good American girl Susan Sontag rehearsing endgame of whatever in Sarajevo,
was another but entirely one-eyed humanity hyena.

Most material is posted already, as is a sharp polemic addressed
to one particular piece of writing which manifests the points I have in mind.

I can also send  the pieces and the background material either as word docs or as pdf if you dislike reading on the web
