Kierkegaard’s Ghost

Søren_KierkegaardKierkegaard’s Ghost is the creation of Rev. Peter A. Olsen (retired) and several other unindicted co-conspirators, living and dead, mostly unwitting. Nobody else bears responsibility for the content of this publication. The Ghost comes out sporadically dependent solely upon the erratic mood swings of its editor. Any given article might well be the last. You can always hope.

The Ghost takes great pride in its provision of pure, unadulterated fake news for public consumption. We strive to ensure that nothing we print, credible as it might appear, is accurate, fair or of any literary value. Nonetheless, we are only human. We cannot guaranty that, despite our best efforts, the truth will not occasionally leak in. (It has an annoying tendency to do that!).

The Ghost is satire-an archaic term for being a smart ass. As such, Kierkegaard’s Ghost stands in the grand tradition of smart asses, including Socrates, Aristophanes, Juvenal and our namesake, Soren Kierkegaard. As the late Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. reminds us, “What we need is a rebirth of satire, of dissent, of irreverence, of an uncompromising insistence that phoniness is phony and platitudes are platitudinous.” Yet, on the other hand, Alfred North Whitehead warns us that, “Satire is the last flicker of originality in a passing epoch as it faces the inroad of staleness and boredom. Freshness has gone; bitterness remains.” The bad news is that publications like the Ghost indicate ours is a passing epoch plagued with staleness and boredom. The good news is that there remains a flicker of originality-albeit the last. “When politics begin to break down, there is a drift towards satire, because it’s the only thing that makes any sense.” Ben Nicholson. So while the Ghost might be flashy, trashy and irreverent, it strives to make sense of an increasingly senseless culture.


Disclaimer No.1 “I was dismayed to learn that this impudent cleric has associated my good name with his despicable rag. I want to make clear for the record that I have never met Rev. Olsen and neither participated in nor condoned the content of his writings.” Soren Kierkegaard.

Disclaimer No. 2 “Nor I.” Juvenal

Disclaimer No. 3 “Me neither.” Aristophanes

Disclaimer No. 4 “Ditto.” Socrates
