Why an Author is anti-bourgeois ?

                          Why an Author is anti-bourgeois

                                                                              I Do, I Undo and I Redo

Affluence  and emotions seldom go together. It is not like Monk who sold his Ferrari, but he could become a monk only after he sold Ferrari and compunctions attached with it. What is frantically chased in the society (suppose Property) would be a bugaboo for an author and exhausted by the rat race around him he would exclaim "Property is murder"! But the world would go on... ! Frustrated by futility of energy and efforts around him author would find a rescue and solace in jotting down his views. Things happen, not by determinism, but by super-determinism, when nature pick and choose like a hovering kite a bourgeois rat to modify it into a human being.

                     At that time such literature becomes handy. Book Expo America would have to go miles and declare many Read Russia English Translation Prize before the essence of Russian Literature could transcend into the  mainstream literature of the United States. Intellectualism, literally and not philosophically, is engaged in plutocracy in the United States. Awarding prize is also a symbol of bourgeois system and is condemnable by true intellectuals.

                        You need not to be a Russophiles to understand Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky, but the only book that can make you a Russophile is Lolita, or may be "Diary of a Seducer" by Soren Kierkegaard written 150 years back after the turmoil of his break up with Regine Olsen. Anytime in the history of mankind when society would be able to see the human psyche beyond the tag of pedophile not as maniacs, but  as a sufferer of super-determinism©, may comprehend that the any system, aesthetic or ethical, can truly lead people in the right direction, save his own inner conscience.

                           The path that leads to right direction is just opposite to the path adopted by the society of US. Would past ever catch up with present or our roller-coaster-society is already riding the fourth wave is yet to discern, and whether the world is round, flat or conical ( almost all stats are in conical form©), the literature would always supersede science and materialism, the only true enemies of individualism.

                             If any other Literature needs to be translated in all the languages of the world is ancient Indian literature written in Sanskrit, Pali and Prakrat languages.

                            Theosophy and Literature went hand in hand for many centuries at the dawn of civilization, sharing  the common objective of  seeking direct knowledge of, presumed mysteries of being and nature. On the contrary bourgeois suffered from the syndrome of Obsessive-Compulsive-Disorder in multiplication of wealth and adopting the values of the capitalist class. At a point the realisation dawns that respect earned by wealth was superficial and one loses status as soon as that wealth is lost, one starts acknowledging the value of literature that gives immortal glory to the status of a man and thus to society he belonged.

                             The stereotyped bourgeois never become extinct. 'Haves' would not enjoy the life if there are no 'Have-notes', and vice-versa may also be true. May be, just a thought!
