Draper: Ulysses and the Sirens (1909)

Draper: Ulysses and the Sirens (1909)

(Image from populist website: painting by Herbert James Draper (1909) attacks “vampire bankers” who send Sirens to destroy Ulysses—an image of The People beset by finance capital. By using this painting, I am not endorsing populist demagoguery. See comments below.)

  1. Love the painting . ‘Vampire Bankers ‘ indeed . If I had to come up with a title in like vein it would be, ‘ We are from the government and we are here to help you ‘ .

    • The government is not a cabal of Jewish bankers. If I gave the impression that I approved of populist demagoguery, I apologize. Statism is about enforcing order from above. Populism is about attacking all elites as puppets in the hand of “international Jewry.” This is sheer mendacious fantasy, inculcated by real elites who want to deflect popular rage.

      • Certainly, I agree with you about bankers . I find it hard to imagine that someone would look at such a beautiful painting and actually think ‘ you know, that reminds me of bankers, coming out of the sea to suck the blood out of brave ,hard working men ‘ . When I said ‘in like vein ‘ I was coming from a standpoint different from the one by the populist . If I had to give a stupid name to the painting. When the government comes to help, there are all sorts of strings attached , that is what I meant , nothing about bankers . When the rabble demands flesh from politicians for something going wrong ,they may get it ,but the actual perpetrators are never held to account . In many cases they are hugely rewarded .
