Hitler, Himmler & Islam, Darren Wilson,& a Night Will Fall from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Dear Coleagues:

As Gilbert Kliman reminds us, Thanksgiving Day in the USA is also The Day of Mourning observed at Plymouth in Massachusetts. This typifies our collective ubiquitous unconscious ambivalence about life and society. It is amply reflected this week on the international psychoanalytic website. I have chosen some posts to illustrate this. Please read those of your choosing and leave your comments for all our colleagues world wide.

My choices this week are:

1) The stellar book review by Nathan Szajnberg of the remarkable book “The Rangell Reader” is a must for all!

2) I recommend the interviews with Wilfred Bion and Brent Potter, as well the the video “Sybil:A Brilliant Hysteric?”

3) Hitler, Himmler and Islam – please read

4) How can we understand Darren Wilson and the killing of Michael Brown?

5) And we still let our children down!

6) I recommend both films cited on the website:
A) A Night Will Fall: The work is a film about a lost film, ***German Concentration Camps Factual Survey*** (GCCFS), the official British record of the camps, which was shelved unfinished, for political reasons, at the end of the Second World War.

b) “A Stranger by the Lake”

7) Evidently as we read we use different parts of the brain:
Some people say that reading “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” taught them the importance of friends, or that easy decisions are seldom right. Carnegie Mellon University scientists used a chapter of that book to learn a different lesson: identifying what different regions of the brain are doing when people read.

XVI. ***Stranger by the Lake***

by Herbert H. Stein

If it had been originally in English, the title of the film, Stranger By the Lake, could easily be seen as a double entendre. Anyone who has seen the film would agree that it is, indeed, ***stranger*** by the lake, an all-male gathering place at which nudity, public sexuality and murder are accepted as commonplace. The other aspect of the double entendre is, of course, a reference to the stranger who is met by the lake, a place in which couples pair off, make love and fall in love with relative anonymity.

But that is if it had been originally in English. In fact, this is a French film, and the translators, presumably with the agreement of the film makers, applied that title to a film with the original title, L***Inconnu du Lac. I know from reading Camus in freshman French that The Stranger is L***Etranger in the original French. L***Inconnu translates literally as ***the unknown.*** Rather than remove the double entendre, this appears to add further layers of suggestion.
