In this podcast, Juan Pablo Fusi, Professor Emeritus of Contemporary History at Madrid’s Universidad Complutense, talks about this outstanding figure in Spanish culture that tried to make sense of the most important challenges of 20th century’s humanity.

Orwell's 1984 and José Ortega y Gasset's Revolt of the Masses

The Hermetic Hour

On Thursday August 25th, 2016 The Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyonwill present a discussion on two modern classics that hold up mirrors tomodern society and recent history: George Orwell's 1984 (1949) andOrtega de Gassett's Revolt of the Masses (1929).Both authors weresocialists and both were involved in the Spanish Civil War.1984 is called a "dystopia"and describes British post World War IIsocialism evolving into a nightmareish doubleplusungood (Stalinistic)tyrany where everyone is brainwashed into believing that: "War is Peace,Freedom is Slavery and Ignorance is Strength." In "Revolt of the Masses"Ortega de Gassett disputes the liberal dictum that universal literacyand education can enoble and uplift "the common people" into a bodypolitic capable of rational and reasonable self government, Hencedemocracy must be controlled by an intellectual elite (sound familiar).Both these books are classics and more important today than when theywere written. We will try to put them in a Hermetic perspective for you(sociology is the new black magick) so if you want to peek into thefuture from way back when, tune in and we'll part the veil.
