Today let's look at some Ukrainian-style Homo Hubris aesthetics

Alright, let's see how this checks out  ::)

Odesa opera theater

Built and rebuilt under Russian colonial rule by French, respectively Austrian architects.

House with Chimaeras

Built under Russian colonial rule by a Polish architect.

National Bank of Ukraine

Built under Russian colonial rule by an Italian architect.

Residence of Bukovinian and Dalmatians Metropolitans

Built under Austro-Hungarian colonial rule by a Czech architect, originally residence of Romanian Orthodox clergy.

Putin probably likes this ****.....

You bet he does. After all, these are genuine Russian aesthetics, respectively those of Turandom countries many Duginists would like to partition Ukraine with.

"You bet he does."

As does Zelensky, apparently:

Quote
Kharkiv's Dormition Cathedral, also known as the Assumption Cathedral, is Ukraine's oldest Orthodox church.

The cathedral dates back to the 1680s.

Russian shelling damaged the church's stained-glass windows as civilians hid inside.

No civilians were injured in the shelling on March 2, according to NBC News.

Zelenskyy condemned the attack and vowed to "restore the cathedral so that no trace of war remains there."

As does Zelensky

No surprise here. Last summer, he caused major outrage by submitting a bill on changing Ukraine's iconic "Tryzub" (trident) coat of arms into an overly complex abomination (images below the quoted text):

https://www.istpravda.com.ua/columns/2021/07/13/159831/

Quote
[English translation of the most important passages from the Ukrainian original - Dazhbog]

Despite its ancient origins, the Tryzub easily fits in with the minimalist aesthetic of the 21st century, can easily be copied and is highly recognizable.

...

Any attempt to "improve" the Tryzub by adding depictions of people, animals, plants and other subjects and declare it the "Great Coat of Arms of Ukraine" is frankly tasteless and absurd.

In addition, Ukraine is neither an empire nor a federation [i.e. not Russia - Dazhbog] and doesn't need to replace the historical and true CoA with a made-up "big" one.

The idea of a "Great CoA" was included in the constitution on the insistence of the communists, who deliberately sought to diminish the importance of the true CoA of Ukraine, the Tryzub.

...

This is about the direct threat of eliminating the Tryzub, humiliating our national symbols and self-degrading the Ukrainian state.

...

The Tryzub is the living symbol of our state tradition and national unity: the sign of the princes of the Kyivan Rus [the medieval polity from which Ukraine derives their state tradition - Dazhbog], the CoA of the Ukrainian People's Republic, a symbol of the Ukrainian independence struggle and the CoA of modern Ukraine.

Judge for yourself!

Tryzub:

"Great CoA":

Against this backdrop, it is hardly surprising that he would aesthetically side with Russia again:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dormition_Cathedral,_Kharkiv

Quote
The cathedral is the only building in Kharkov visited by almost all Russian Emperors starting with Catherine the Great.

...

On May 14, 1771, a cornerstone for the new cathedral was laid. The design of the future building was inspired by the St Clement's Church in Moscow. In Spring 1778 the altar was consecrated in honor of Our Lady of Kazan, though the construction wasn’t completed yet. On September 27, 1780, it was reconsecrated in honor of Dormition. The ceremony was attended by the general Pyotr Rumyantsev.

...

According to Filaret Gumilevsky, the free-standing Alexander Bell Tower was built in the aftermath of Napoleon's expulsion from Russia "to express the people's gratitude to Alexander I".

...

The cathedral was restored in the late 1970s and reverted to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church [...of the Moscow Patriarchate, i.e. the local branch of the Russian Orthodox Church - Dazhbog] in 2006.

If Zelensky (Jew) is already unreliable in terms of his politics, in an aesthetic sense he is a straight up Russian agent!

Coup organizer and professional Westerner Roger Stone. With someone like him, he is not dressing this way just because he thinks it's "cool" or whatever--he's doing it to be as ideologically pro-Western as possible.

This appeared on my YouTube recommendations although I wasn't even looking for material for this topic, but I guess I'll post it anyway:

How can anyone claim that Russia is not part of Western civilization after listening to something like this? Music doesn't get more Western than this!

I agree that Russia and Ukraine are both parts of Western civilization, but just for fun: Westerners arguing whether Russia belongs in their camp or not.

Finally mainstream journalism is beginning to learn to talk about Western architecture as we do!

https://www.insider.com/million-dollar-gilded-era-mansion-new-york-for-sale-photos-2022-4

Quote
A decadent $33 million Gilded Age mansion is on sale for the first time in nearly half a century. Take a look inside.

It's a start.

Quote
Known as The James F. D. Lanier House, the agent listing it calls it a "work of art."

Credit to them for also mentioning how Westerners see it, thus highlighting the existence of opposing views. This is the first step, because far too many people (who have not read this topic and others around here) are currently not even aware that some people (we!) consider Western architecture the most inferior of all. In contrast, these are the people who appreciate Western architecture:

Quote
In a press release provided to Insider, Christie's details that the mansion was built in 1903 as a home for James Franklin Doughty Lanier II – a banker and "pioneering automobilist" – and his wife, Harriet.

The couple were prominent members of New York's high society at the time, making the cut of the 400 "fashionable" members of society listed by New York socialite Caroline Schermerhorn Astor, The New York Times reported in 1892.























Besides being ugly, it is also un-American. How long will it take mainstream journalism to start describing it as such?

Quote
A lost garden that has been hidden from view for 300 years has been revealed by the heatwave.

The ornate European-style garden at the Chatsworth estate in Derbyshire was designed in 1699 for the 1st Duke of Devonshire.

Featuring an intricate display of flower beds and paths the garden was created to provide a grand view from the then newly completed south side of the stately home.

Our enemy Duchesne is back to entertain us with his inferiority:

White women make the best cakes!
Some of European best cakes:

Vienna – Sachertorte.
Paris – Tarte au citron meringue.
Zurich – Bündner Nusstorte.
London – Victoria Sponge.
Rome – Torta caprese.
Stockholm – Prinsesstårta.
Madrid – Tarta de Santiago.
Berlin – Käsekuchen.


As if the photo he chose is not tasteless enough, I looked up pictures of the cakes he listed. In sequence:

















Suffice to say that cakes like these are exactly what we'd expect to find inside any of the Western buildings extensively posted in this topic.

Very stiff, overly civilized, and a delusional level of arrogance. This is what being steeped in "white" politeness looks like.
