    No surprises here; he was an advocate for pederasty, along with many other prominent French intellectuals of the day.

    The truly insulting part of this article is the attempt to divert the crime of rock spidering as “white imperialism”.

    And then there’s this- yes, there is a long history of French writers who were partial to a game of hide the sausage…

    Shocked! not. Funny isn’t it that those who spend their life’s work undermineing western civilisation and Christian morality turn out to be perverts, crooks or predators of one sort or another. Almost as if destroying western norms is the goal so they can pursue their perversions. Will his work stop being taught in universities? Or will handwavium and excuses once again trump the standards they in force on everybody else.

  7. Roger says:

    I didn’t read it that way; I took that as an explanation as to how he could be confident of getting away with acts that in France would see him imprisoned. As a wealthy European in late ’60s Tunisia he was virtually untouchable. And if any complaints were made, local authorities would likely be prepared to look the other way for a price.

  8. Roger says:

    Precisely.

  9. C.L. says:

    A bit unfair to make this an anti-French thing.
    Leftists in the US, Britain, Western Europe and Australia were all agitating for the legalisation of child molestation in the 1970s. Many still are – it’s by no means an abandoned project.

  10. Dot says:

    It isn’t and it is an interesting study of the madness of crowds.

    One minute they’ll crucify a public figure, but if their “leader” said it was okay, they’d blindly follow.

    ABC management condoned such behavior?

    hitpiece by enemy of foucault.
    foucault is most popularly cited academic, yet he is loathed by academics because he is smarter than they are
    madness and civilisation is absolutely essential reading if you are a thinker (have you not noticed that madness is the new normal?)
    slip up cats, you been sucked in.

  15. gavalanche says:

    in his famous debate with chomsky foucault pointed out the fallacy of marxism very clearly – paraphrasing: how can you expect the dictatorship of the working class to be any less tyrannical than the dictatorship of any other class.
    chomsky couldnt deal with foucault’s ideas…he had no counter argument
    that should be a sign that he is worthy of our respect and attention

  16. Ivan Denisovich says:

    How thoroughly has TheirABC – indeed much of the msm and academia – embraced the teachings of Foucault:

    Sorman said that while he regrets not coming forward with the accusations earlier, the French media was covering up for the philosopher, saying: “There were journalists present on that trip, there were many witnesses, but nobody did stories like that in those days. Foucault was the philosopher-king. He’s like our god in France.”

    Despite Foucault’s self-professed Marxist leanings, Sorman said that his behaviour in real life was indicative of French elitism, noting that Foucalt “believed there were two morals, one for the elite, which was immoral, and one for the people, which should be restrictive.”

    “He thought his arguments gave him permission to do whatever he wanted.”…..

    Foucault has been a frequent target of Canadian psychologist Dr Jordan Peterson, who has cited him, alongside other postmodernist thinkers such as Jaque Derrida, as major players in the Marxist takeover of Western academia.

    In a lecture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017, Dr Peterson said that following the mass deaths witnessed under communist regimes such as the Soviet Union and Mao’s China, leftist thinkers such as Foucault were forced to shift their rhetoric away from classical Marxism.

    “They transformed the Marxist dialogue of rich versus poor into oppressed versus oppressor and Foucault, in particular, who never fit in anywhere and who was an outcast in many ways and a bitter one, a suicidal one his entire life, did everything he possibly could with his staggering IQ to figure out every treacherous way possible to undermine the structure that would accept him in all his peculiarities,” Peterson said.

    “It’s no wonder because there would be no way of making a structure that could possibly function if it was composed of people who were as peculiar, bitter, and resentful as Michel Foucault,” Peterson added.

    This assessment was backed up by late British conservative philosopher Sir Roger Scruton, who wrote in 2012: “Foucault’s approach reduces culture to a power-game, and scholarship to a kind of refereeing in the endless ‘struggle’ between oppressed and oppressing groups. The shift of emphasis from the content of an utterance to the power that speaks through it leads to a new kind of scholarship, which bypasses entirely questions of truth and rationality, and can even reject those questions as themselves ideological.”

    Foucault is the most cited academic in the world, with over one million citations according to Google Scholar.

    In December, Daniel Miller in The Critic magazine wrote that “it is almost invariably Foucault to whom contemporary activist studies departments trace their intellectual foundations.”

    Lytton Strachey, his male bed partner, wrote that Keynes was “A liberal and a sodomite,
    Keynes and his friends made numerous trips to the resorts surrounding the Mediterranean. At the resorts, little boys were sold by their families to bordellos which catered to homosexuals.

    Zygmund Dobbs wrote in his work Keynes at Harvard:
    In 1967 the world was startled by the publication of the letters between Lytton Strachey and Maynard Keynes. Undisputed evidence in their private correspondence shows that Keynes was a life-long sexual deviate. What was more shocking was that these practices extended to a large group. Homosexuality, sado-masochism, lesbianism, and the deliberate policy of corrupting the young was the established practice of this large and influential group which eventually set the political and cultural tone for the British Empire.

    The guy that made Ren & Stimpy was another degenerate that liked them young. Perhaps time for the Cat’s own Stimpy to assume another moniker.

  20. notafan says:

    You overlook Foucault being a signatory to the 1973 petition to the French government requesting the removal of age of consent laws.

    Logical that he might have a personal interest.

  21. Megan says:

    chomsky couldnt deal with foucault’s ideas…he had no counter argument
    that should be a sign that he is worthy of our respect and attention

    No matter his intellectual strengths or that he is the most cited scholar in Western writings if he commits sexual acts on children that are both legally prohibited in most places and morally reprehensible.
    Those acts alone remove any respect I might have held him in.
    It does explain his sometimes confused writings on homosexuality though.

  22. dover_beach says:

    paraphrasing: how can you expect the dictatorship of the working class to be any less tyrannical than the dictatorship of any other class.

    Sure, but then apply Foucault’s talk about power discourses to itself.

  23. rickw says:

    The Left are complete filth.

  24. Dot says:

    It could be complete bullshit.

    Remember there was some airhead who reckoned Epstein *groomed* her when she was 19? 🤪🤡🤔🤭😂

    Unless she DEMANDS we take women’s rights away, you can only note this sort of thing is either stupid or malicious.

    There’s no corroboration re: Keynes.

  25. notafan says:

    I don’t have any regard for Chomsky either.

  26. MatrixTransform says:

    Michel’s mate Simone was a bit of a skank as well

  27. notafan says:

    Was Foucault a classist?

    I’ve read elsewhere that the 19th century French elite considered the lower classes to be not quite the same species.

  28. Frank says:

    I’ve read elsewhere that the 19th century French elite considered the lower classes to be not quite the same species.

    Sometimes in a reflective moment at the supermarket it is possible to have sympathy for that point of view. Just that pesky eugenics thing gives it a bad name.

  34. Gorilla Dance Party says:

    Yes. If you look into the private lives of most anti-Christian “thinkers”, you will find a pervert of some description. The better behaved ones stick to adult women.

    the petition was signed by all the intellectual/artistic elite
    we have no hard evidence he was a pedo or a rapist etc

    I think you are referring to Satre and DeBeauvoir, aren’t you?

  40. Old Lefty says:

    No surprise about Foucault’s activities in Tunisia: they were radical chic at the time (e.g. Richard Neville and the ABC in Australia).

    I disagree with Chomsky on many (?most) things, but he had the better of Foucault’s nihilist posturing: surely, he put to Foucault, if you protest against injustice you must have some objective, rational standard of justice to which you can appeal? Foucault thought not. But without an objective standard of justice, what is there but the will to power?

  41. dover_beach says:

    Typical. The clue was when Foucault was exposed as a conservative.

    LOL. The ‘post-modern’ conservative is the tell. This critique of Foucault is simply that their are aspects of his thought, that are not in themselves always conducive to the progressive project, which is the continuous transformation of society.

  42. dover_beach says:

    You know, it’s just so easy to confuse Burke with Foucault.

  43. Boambee John says:

    You can’t seriously compare Richard Neville’s own account of a horny High School girl with a Frog regularly tyraveling to Tunisia on the sly intent on paying for sex with 10 year old boys?

  50. notafan says:

    I’m not discrediting his books.

    The left currently erase anybody who now stands accused of sexual misconduct, or even wrong think.

    Here is another but the accusation will be brushed aside.

    As for Foucault signing the petition, which was only signed by those of like mind not all, it’s hard evidence of his views in relation to the morality of sex with children.

    Are you convinced that had it been made legal in France he would not have indulged?

    Not possible.

  51. Ed Case says:

    This stuff seems pretty common in Tunisia, but it goes on everywhere.
    I was reading today that a Schoolteacher befriended the then Richard Jenkins as a 10 year old and used his Gay contacts to get him into RADA, from which followed fame and fortune.

  52. notafan says:

    Well that makes it alright then.

  53. Ed Case says:

    ***…, it’s hard evidence of his views in relation to the morality of sex with children.***
    Disagree.
    He was interested in sex with boys of a certain age.
    The fact that he kept it on the Down Low could indicate that he understod that he was doing evil.

  54. Ed Case says:

    Your words, not mine, but Richard Burton never had any complaints about how it worked out for him.

  55. notafan says:

    Foucault petitioned that France make it legal. That was in 1973.

    His Tunisian activities allegedlyoccurred in the 1960s with boys apparently aged between 8 and 10*.

    Of course he didn’t shout that from the rooftops home in France.

    What is your point?

    *these are boy children.

  56. Ed Case says:

    ***His Tunisian activities allegedlyoccurred in the 1960s with boys apparently aged between 8 and 10*.***
    Well, he lived to 1984, so I don’t see any reason to assume he racked the cue in Tunisia in the Sixties?
    And allegedly?
    You’re not suggesting there’s any doubt about his boy buggering ways?

  57. Jannie says:

    Foucault was an ugly little sexual deviant and died the way he lived. He was done for seducing or attempting to seduce his students in Poland in the early 1960s, including an undercover agent. But the Poles figured he would do more harm to the West if they sent him back to corrupt the Western Yoof. He loved the anonymous gay bathhouse sex in California in the early 1980s, and he was one of the first to pick up and die from AIDS. Seems apt.

  58. Old Lefty says:

    I was referring not only to Richard Neville’s gloating account of his ‘hurricane f***’ with the cherubic fourteen year old girl he picked up in her uniform outside the school gate, but also his sniggering, fawning Lateline radio program promoting the lifestyle of his three p3d3rast friends (one of whom rhapsodised on the joys of buggering a twelve year old). The outcry about that promoted (1) a sneering campaign by the leftist pseudo-sophistictes at the ABC against primitives such as Fred Nike; (2) a declaration by Whitlam’s hand-picked ABC chairman, Richard Downing, that men will have sex with boys and we should just learn to understand it; (3) refusal to co-operate with the police and destruction by person or persons unknown at the ABC of the tape of the program (i.e destroying evidence of crimes).

    Gerard Henderson has asked successive contemporary ABC chairpersons to disavow Downing’s remarks, but they have declined. That makes the ABC, to the best of my knowledge, the only Australian institution that overtly supports p3d0filia – provided it isn’t carried out by enemies of the revolution such as the clergy. It also explains their silence about their own Jon Stephens and Bob Ellis.

  59. Gyro Cadiz says:

    Sorry – how did people not already know this? The rockspider flaunted it, gloried in it and publicised it all his life.

    Even the French thought he was the foullest of their pederast-philosophers. Who were and remain a pretty vile lot.
    They accepted without qualm his long public advocacy of lowering the age of consent to 13.

    That was merely so progressive! At least in the 60s.

    What they did not like was his public statements that “this is very old, I prefer the boys I f*** to be around half that age”.

    This stuck in the craw of even the French.

    Sure but it is funny how the right rejoice when one of their opponents is exposed, and try to generalize this to whole of liberals and the left. Just parroting the left.

  62. dover_beach says:

    Sure but it is funny how the right rejoice when one of their opponents is exposed, and try to generalize this to whole of liberals and the left.

    But if you can identify an argument for lowering the age of consent (and the like) among liberals and the Left?

  63. BorisG says:

    Dover I fully agree that this was appalling, even if judged by the standards of his time. But there is nothing to rejoice. There are horrific criminals on all sides.

  64. sfw says:

    Only thing that seems a bit dodgy in the piece is that he claims they had sex on ‘gravestones’, Tunisia is a muslim country and the muslims don’t use headstones in those places. However I suppose that other religions there did and that he was using the non muslim section.

  65. TPL001 says:

    The logic of legalising paedophilia or pedastry in the state of Victoria, Australia is clear. If children according to state law can decide what gender they can be, apart from their parents consent, then they can — have the ‘right’ to — choose whether to engage in consensual sex. Even the notion of under age will be challenged – age is relative. The constraint on this should be the parents’ consent and the Biblical notion of no sex outside of marriage. But those who have an interest in this will press for the rights of ‘paedophiles.’ Why should they miss out? This is the logical consequence of dispensing with objective moral truth.

    I agree with a comment above, to which I will add an inference: critical theorists and postmodernists are nihilists and advocate whirl as king. Their worldview is vacuous and, no matter their IQ points, their only offering is moral degradation and chaos. Better is a worldview that has a sound ontology, epistemology and ethical (moral) system reflected in the rule of law that provides for safety for families and for society to flourish in civil peace. It always seems to be the numbnuts like Lenin, Gramsci, and more recent would-be intellectual or actual tyrants that lead society into revolution and destruction.

  66. Up The Workers! says:

    A boy-rapist named Foucault?

    Name sounds familiar.

    Did he have a regular program at the A.L.P.B.C.?

    Sounds like their type.

  67. dover_beach says:

    TPL001 is right. If children can consent to sex change operations why can’t they consent to sex with adults? Show us your work.

  68. Dot says:

    Jannie

    So the agent was a kid or… that’s something he did which shouldn’t have been a crime???

  69. Jannie says:

    Dot the agent was a student. Probably not a kid, they were at University. Homosexuality was illegal in Poland at the time, as well as other places in the West, but that is not the main issue. Sexually seducing students under your authority is a crime in most most places, for heterosexuals anyway.

  70. max says:

    In 1968, Michael Holroyd published his two-volume biography of Lytton Strachey, one of Keynes’ “companions,” which revealed the incredibly sordid lifestyle of the twentieth century’s premier economist. Holroyd even cited Keynes letter recommending Tunisia as a marvelous place for a vacation because of the inexpensive “bed and boy” facilities available there.

    In 1985, Richard Deacon’s book appeared which deals with the Cambridge University secret society, the Cambridge Apostles. It revealed that this group was controlled by homosexuals throughout the early decades of the twentieth century, and that their most prestigious members in this era-John Maynard Keynes, G. Lowes Dickenson, G. E. Moore, and Lytton Strachey–were all dedicated homosexuals. So blatant was their public commitment to sodomy that Fabian socialist Beatrice Webb was concerned in 1911 when her protégé Bertrand Russell returned to Cambridge to teach, for he had been an Apostle as a student there in 1892, and she feared that he might get involved with them again: “. . . we have for a long time been aware of its bad influence on our young Fabians.”

    Deacon’s summary is important as an introduction to Ian Hodge’s study of Keynesian economics, Baptized Inflation: “Homosexuality probably reached its peak in the Society when Strachey and Maynard Keynes formed a remarkable partnership in conducting its affairs. Here were two minds both devoted to achieving power and influence in their respective ways. Keynes himself was the chief protagonist of the homosexual cult, obsessed with the subject to an abnormal degree for one with a good intellect and wide interests. So obsessed, in fact, that when, years later, he married the Russian ballet dancer, Lydia Lopokova, the news was received with outraged horror among such friends. Some of them never forgave him; others maliciously speculated what was the real reason for the marriage. It slowly dawned on them that this was all part of Keynes’s power game.
    “‘The Apostles repudiated entirely customary conventions and traditional wisdom,’ declared a smug and at the same time delighted Keynes. ‘We were in the strict sense of the term Immoralists.'”
    Apostles’ philosopher G. E. Moore had once announced in a paper read to the group: “In the beginning was matter, and matter begat the devil, and the devil begat God.” How terribly clever! How revealingly perverse. He then went on to say that first God had died, then the devil, and now only matter remains. (That Moore is regarded as one of the half dozen major philosophers of this century testifies to the pathetic moral and intellectual character of this century.) It was within this moral and religious cesspool that Keynes emerged as co-master, along with Strachey. As in every cesspool, the large chunks rise to the top. Keynes was a very large chunk. “A product of Eton, where he displayed a great contempt for his examiners even though they regarded him highly, he brought to Cambridge a high degree of arrogance and assertion of personal superiority over his contemporaries. Surprisingly, this told in his favour rather than against him. Just as the mindless, sadistic public [English private] school bully held sway among the hearties, so did the intellectual bully (which was what Keynes was) dominate when he came to Kings [College, Cambridge].” The academic community has always had its share of masochistic wimps.

  71. Turtle says:

    Foucault’s entire philosophy was an excuse for his own insanity and sexual perversion. He was the top name to drop in universities in the 90s. I always detested him. He was deliberately obscure, by his own admission. Thomas Sowell would wipe the floor with him.

  72. BorisG says:

    Sexually seducing students under your authority is a crime in most most places, for heterosexuals anyway.

    Not until very recently. History is full of professors marrying their adult students. Seducing is a loaded word here. If there is a degree of coercion or abuse of authority that may be classified as harassment, and can even be a crime, but generally speaking relationships between consenting adults are not a crime.

    Of course in today’s sanitized world, professors have to stay miles away from their students even when the said students are madly in love with them (which is probably increasingly rare, but that’s another story), or they will be in deep trouble.

    No trying to upset the Mick and Albatross again, the Berber do have headstones. You see I was being ironic about ‘look it up’ because you won’t find it. Perhaps a trip to Berber Siwa in Egypt – well know gay destination for Germans ( and French) of certain proclivities will clear it up. Like Thailand or Bali for the Australian arts supremos. Also you can find quite a few description of these proclivities that horrified the WW2 soldiers in their stories. Foucault found his relationship between sex and truth by bggering boys.
    AIDS did the job that a real society should have done: executed him in public. I hope that clears up my succinct post.
    Do I have to fuck off again?
