read by David Grizzly Smith. Source: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIQTLNiaJzSWOFz5lSfdn6Q In Eugenics and Other Evils, Chesterton attacked eugenics as Parliament was moving towards passage of the Mental Deficiency Act 1913. Some backing the ideas of eugenics called for the government to sterilise people deemed "mentally defective"; this view did not gain popularity but the idea of segregating them from the rest of society and thereby preventing them from reproducing did gain traction. These ideas disgusted Chesterton who wrote, "It is not only openly said, it is eagerly urged that the aim of the measure is to prevent any person whom these propagandists do not happen to think intelligent from having any wife or children." He blasted the proposed wording for such measures as being so vague as to apply to anyone, including "Every tramp who is sulk, every labourer who is shy, every rustic who is eccentric, can quite easily be brought under such conditions as were designed for homicidal maniacs. That is the situation; and that is the point ... we are already under the Eugenist State; and nothing remains to us but rebellion." He derided such ideas as founded on nonsense, "as if one had a right to dragoon and enslave one's fellow citizens as a kind of chemical experiment". Chesterton mocked the idea that poverty was a result of bad breeding: "[it is a] strange new disposition to regard the poor as a race; as if they were a colony of Japs or Chinese coolies ... The poor are not a race or even a type. It is senseless to talk about breeding them; for they are not a breed. They are, in cold fact, what Dickens describes: 'a dustbin of individual accidents,' of damaged dignity, and often of damaged gentility."

Welcome to the season finale of A Cozy Christmas Podcast! Today, we're going to consider Charles Dickens' Christmas Tree, as well as a special announcement for a reading challenge. In 1850 Dickens published a reflection piece for Christmas entitled "A Christmas Tree". And in typical Dickens fashion, he has a lot of words to say about his tree and the memories from his past that it conjures up. Though at times the story is a bit strange, who hasn't occasionally gotten lost in nostalgia while enjoying the lights of their Christmas tree? I also am announcing a group reading challenge for us this year! As you know, I love to read, so I created 12 reading challenges based on Christmas movies. Check out my social medias for the check list or go to www.cozychristmaspodcast.com and you can download the check list there. Every Wednesday I'll be posting about what books I'm reading for the challenge and I'd love to hear from you as well. Take a listen and find out what prompt we're doing first for January! See you all on the socials every Wednesday - let me know if you'll be reading the prompts and which books you pick. Season 3 begins January 24th! See you then... Keep an eye out for a bonus midseason story on or about January 14th...

Dentro de un mes exacto se cumplirán cien años de la publicación de Ulises, una novela vanguardista que el escritor irlandés James Joyce publicó el 2 de febrero de 1922. Javier Cancho comenta esta obra en 'Por fin no es lunes' con la esperanza de que todos los lectores queden atrapados en sus páginas.
A new year is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than to continue our tradition of joking our way through each of Charles Dickens' five Christmas Books? In ‘The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells that Rang an Old Year Out and a New Year In,' a poor old man learns a valuable lesson about the dangers of tripe consumption. Theo reveals a newer, more sultry side. Jackie wishes we wouldn't sexualize everything. Rachel fondly recalls a childhood friend with a surprising talent. We all get very confused, but it's not our fault. Topics include: an actually super timely and appropriate moral message, New Year's resolutions, The Killers, racist eggs, surfboard livin', rudely dying on your friends, stealing from the mouths of widows and orphans, Mrs. Chickenstalker, more Muppets than Theo can imagine, the prison-industrial complex, the scent of last year's beans, and for some reason, so, so many goblins. Content warning: suicide, death, alcoholism, infanticide

THE THESIS: There are a lot more people who have simply been conned than people who are simply evil. A REMINDER FROM HISTORY BY WAY OF C.S. LEWIS'S FICTION: ““I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of "Admin." The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid "dens of crime" that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." - C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters THE SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 5:20 - “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Numbers 32:13 - “The Lord's anger burned against Israel and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until the whole generation of those who had done evil in his sight was gone.” Psalm 92:5-7 - 5 How great are your works, Lord, how profound your thoughts! 6 Senseless people do not know, fools do not understand, 7 that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be destroyed forever. THE NEWS: Milken Institute - I believe these people are evil I can't tell with this guy, Gavin Newsome THE MONOLOGUE ABC's 'This Week' Panel Attacks Manchin 'He Represents Plutocrats' Fill-in host Jonathan Karl and his panel which consisted of ABC political director Averi Harper, and ABC senior national correspondent Terry Moran, spent the first part of the segment analyzing the fallout from the defeat of Build Back Better.

Charles Dickens ist der große Chronist des 19. Jahrhunderts in England. In umfangreichen Romanen wie „Große Erwartungen“ oder „Oliver Twist“ hat er die soziale Wirklichkeit in Literatur verwandelt. Oft sind seine Werke nicht ganz frei von Sentimentalität, wie auch seine berühmte Erzählung „Der Weihnachtsabend“ beweist. Die Geschichte ist wohl auch jenen bekannt, die den Text nie gelesen haben: Der gierige und geizige Geschäftsmann Ebenezer Scrooge hat nur den Profit im Sinn, für Gefühle, Menschlichkeit und Familie ist in seinem Leben kein Platz. Selbst zu Weihnachten ist sein Herz weder von Kinderaugen noch von Bittstellern zu erweichen, bis ihm plötzlich Geister erscheinen, die ihn auf den rechten Weg führen wollen. Scrooge wird durch die Konfrontation mit seiner Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft, seinen Fehltritten und Versäumnissen ein anderer, ein besserer Mensch. Dickens erzählt hier ein Märchen, das allzu leichtfertig über die Widersprüche des Kapitalismus hinweggeht. In der neuen Folge von „Wohlstand für Alle“-Literatur sprechen Ole Nymoen und Wolfgang M. Schmitt über diesen überaus populären Weihnachtsklassiker. Literatur: Charles Dickens: Der Weihnachtsabend. Neu übersetzt von Eike Schönfeld, Insel Verlag. Karl Marx: Das Kapital.

A Christmas Carol week continues with another old Sleigh Bell Cinema discussion. This time Michael and Paxton Holley triple the run time of the movie they're talking about when they dig into the short Mickey's Christmas Carol starring a plethora of Disney characters in the various Dickens roles.
When I suggest that you find your own homeland, I mean that you should not live in the same area in which you were born and grew up- unless that area is a rural, or small town conservative kind of place. Also, if you live in a solid blue, authoritarian state like Illinois, California, or New York, you should leave! We are in strange times, and the very constitution of the United States is under attack by the new Jacobins.By this I mean the current ‘Democrats', who no longer have any similarity to the former party of that name, and are now simply Jacobins, or in more modern parlance: Marxists. If you know of, or remember the French Revolution, you probably know that, although it started because of an extreme inequality between the middle class and the ruling elite, it ended up in an extreme overreaction, and a slaughter of many, many people by the guillotine. Also, the Jacobins, as these revolutionaries were called, decided to completely revamp French society itself, and were in every way like the modern cancel culture democrats are today! They began by killing all of the royal rulers, innocent or guilty, and then they turned on one another. They decided to rename the names of the months, change history, and even questioned established knowledge (like math) that had been the bedrock of Western civilization. They divided people into different groups, endlessly, and turned on one another, always with the specter of the guillotine lurking in the background.Sound familiar? If not, it should: the Democrats of today are, as I said, the new Jacobins, or French Revolutionaries! They would up destroying everything worthwhile in their own homeland, accusing one another endlessly for everything wrong in their own lives, and killing anyone who contested their truth. Their supreme leader, Robespierre, was extremely bloodthirsty, and ordered the execution of many. He wanted the disarmament of the public, and wanted only those of the “new fraternity” to have arms. When the murderous regime was ended with his execution, at last the killing stopped.To get a good feeling of the times of this leftish revolution, I recommend the Dickens book ‘Tale of Two Cities'. But let's get back to today: today's Jacobins are busy dividing us into different races and classes, and not only banning books (like ‘Huckleberry Finn'), but introducing noxious, destructive policies like ‘defund the police' and supporting district attorneys that let criminals out with a signature bond the same day they are arrested! Absolute madness, and only designed to destroy our conservative, well-working, democratic republic from within. And so, let's get back to my main premise- get out of such Jacobin/liberal/Democrat cities and states! If you are a paleo, tribal sort of person, you need to get into areas that will leave you alone. Places that will let you raise your family without awful interference from these authoritarian know-it-alls that actually know less than a baby. Low IQ leaders are anathema to society, and civilization itself! Just look at current South Africa, where there are daily riots over bread, where before it was a well-run modern outpost of Western civilization. Now, just as in ALL of our major American, blue, leftist cities: they are all virtual HELLS! Rampant crime and killings, no lasting arrests, and everything just gets worse and worse. It is undeniable.So, do it. Move your family, and urge your friends as I am doing right now, to get the hell out! I think things will ultimately turn around, just as they did in France long ago, but only after a lot of chaos, nonsense, and violence- all for nothing. As is always the case with the Left, destru

Just as Scrooge wandered London's streets on a cold Christmas night, Dan Snow follows the ghosts of Charles Dickens' past to discover the city that inspired his greatest works. With London-born tour guide David Charnick, they slip down hidden alleyways to find the old debtor's prison that the Dicken's family once called home; a place that haunted a young Charles for the rest of his life. They overlook the Thames to tell the tales of Victorian scavengers who searched the murky waters for bodies to turn over for profit. They find the old counting houses and graveyards that inspired the creation of Ebenezer Scrooge. They walk down the very street that Bob Cratchit 'went down a slide on Cornhill twenty times, in honour of its being Christmas-eve'. With David's masterful guidance and atmospheric readings, this immersive episode takes you to the fireside of a London coaching inn as the sun sets outside on a late December afternoon. A warning: this episode contains references to historical suicides. Dickens' extracts are read by Robyn Wilson. 'Roger de Coverley' and 'Durang's Hornpipe' performed by Vivian and Phil Williams.

British author Charles Dickens' 1843 holiday classic about the power of the Christmas Spirit(s) to melt even the coldest hearts Christmas past, Christmas present, and even Christmas yet to come. Great discussion with Dr. Diane Calhoun-French, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Jefferson Community & Technical College and Dickens scholar about Mr. Dickens' own literary and life transformations around the time the text was published.
The Gospel in Dickens. That’s our topic on Chris Fabry Live. You’ll hear from a fluent Dickens scholar who will talk about some of his most famous stories. In spite of his own failings, or, perhaps because of them, Charles Dickens never stopped exploring the themes of sin, guilt, repentance, redemption, and restoration found in the Gospel. Hear this "Best of" conversation about the Gospel in Dickens on Chris Fabry Live.
Merry Christmas! Or, bah humbug! Film journalist Ben Travis and animation academic Sam Summers are here with a little festive bonus episode – putting a pause in the regular schedule to talk 1983's theatrically-released short Mickey's Christmas Carol. In this mini-episode, the duo explore how Dickens got Disneyfied in a brief but essentially faithful retelling of the ghostly Christmas fable – this time starring Scrooge McDuck, Goofy, Mickey Mouse (obviously), and a host of familiar faces from films past. As well as digging into all the cameos, we find out Sam's Scroogiest habit, learn the history of Duck Tales, and meet everyone's favourite animator / Commie canine, Karl Barx. PLUS! There's 10 minutes of Encanto chat in there too – with the latest Walt Disney Animation Studios film hitting Disney+ on Christmas Eve. God bless us, every one!

Louis Bayard's novel Mr. Timothy, a sort-of sequel to Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol, imagines what happens to Tiny Tim as a grownup. It's a moving literary thriller, with its own sort of redemption and set in and around the Victorian London underworld, and author Bayard discusses the book's origins and creation; how A Christmas Carol is a surprisingly angry book; how he realized that Bob Cratchit is not the most reliable narrator; the ways in which Tiny Tim is a Rorschach test; the desperate need to find your own narrative; the struggle of being seen as a symbol, not a person; the importance of purging and exorcizing your demons; not having a good answer to the question of where this sh1t comes from; identifying at least one Dickens descendant (who you may recognize from Game of Thrones); the importance of keeping multiple plates spinning; the fun of finding the story that's already there; and inside scoop on the upcoming film adaptation of Lou's novel The Pale Blue Eye, starring Christian Bale. (Length 19:43) The post Grownup Tiny Tim appeared first on Reduced Shakespeare Company.
For this years holiday we look into the writer known as Dickens. Charles Dickens to be precise and his master piece of ghost and holiday miracles, A Christmas Carol. From it's incarnation to the 135 adaptations we got you covered for a Dickens of a time
If you like your Christmas movies—especially the stars of your Christmas movies—to be very big and very loud, Bill Murray's hard-drinking performance in Scrooged probably feels like your perfect slice of turkey. It's an unpopular opinion, but we weren't Murray fans in this movie, especially in the unearned finale where he just comes across as phony and desperate. He also seems…gulp…miscast? He certainly doesn't seem like the right man for the job whenever the focus is on the love story with the delightful Karen Allen. It doesn't help at all that the versatile Richard Donner was apparently a terrible match directing his improvisational star. But, hey, what do we know? This is a beloved holiday comedy, one of the favourites for legions of people. So whether you think you'll agree with our take or not, put a little podcast in your e-e-ears as the 421st Ellises' Analysis tears Scrooged a new one. Well, Actually: Joel Murray was indeed in a couple of movies that Bobcat Goldthwait directed (Shakes The Clown and God Bless America). If you're going to watch a TV special about A Christmas Carol on Christmas Eve (or if you're going to do a reading of Dickens' play like we & our friends did last week…so much fun, highly recommend it!), you'd be wise to have a cup of Sparkplug Coffee handy.

In order to break the curse brought on by Jenn in 2019's Muppet Christmas Carol episode, Joe, Jenn and Kelsey dive back in to the world of Charles Dickens and Jim Henson once again. And also recast ever movie they have ever seen with muppets.
Originally podcast in December 2017 as the holiday special for the first season of Point of Learning, this 75-minute version of the Dickens tale was recorded before a live audience at First Baptist Church in Westfield, NJ.
For the holiday season we are tackling Dickens's classic tale in all its live action and animated film forms zeroing in on that most revered of characters Ebeneezer Scrooge. Listen as we break down our favorite Scrooges, the Scrooges that didn't learn the lesson, and the ones that make us feel the joy of the season. This eternal story of redemption has been made, remade, and reimagined dozens of times and we are here to crown the Scrooge and The Christmas Carol that get us right in the holiday feels.
The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1951 movie Scrooge (A Christmas Carol in the US). Widely considered the definitive version of the Dickens classic, it's got a lot to offer us at this time of year. Plus some random talk and our usual tangents

A Christmas Carol has never been out of print since but, despite the first run selling out within 6 days, high production costs due to his very specific requirements meant that the profits were smaller than Dickens had hoped ...
