  Encyclopedia: Fatherland
Fatherland continued to be the negation of the freedom of the individual, in the republic as it had been in the monarchy.
The Fatherland of every man was the part of the land that his domestic or national religion had sanctified, the ground where the remains of their predecessors were buried and that was inhabited by their souls.
The omnipotence of the Fatherland or the State is the cause and reason of being of the omnipotence of the Government of the Fatherland, which serves as personification or representation in the exercise of its sovereign power.

 The Omnipotence of the State   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
It was not the liberties of the Fatherland those that made great the modern nations, but the individual liberties whereupon men have created and worked their own personal greatness, which is the elementary factor of the greatness of the really great and free nations that are those of the North of both worlds.
Another great disadvantage of the Roman notions of Fatherland and patriotism for the development of freedom is that being the Fatherland a religious worship in its origin, it generated a great deal of enthusiasm and fanaticism, that is, the heat and the passion that blind.
Conceived the Fatherland as a religious and sacred institution, as was seen by the Greek and Roman societies, the Fatherland and its worship filled the hearts with the inexplicable enthusiasm of the holy things.

 Stomp Tokyo Video Reviews - Fatherland
Fatherland is one of those "What If" movies that leaves you wishing the moviemakers had just left the entire subject alone.
Fatherland's main problem is that no one really seems to care about anything that happens, either in the plot or in their acting performances.
In the long run, however, Fatherland is dragged down by principal actors who don't seem to care, a plot with very little action to speak of, and a kid actor whose voice is dubbed so poorly we could have been watching Kung Fu Gold theater.

The cover nicely reflects the art shown in 18 of the 24 pages of this isses except that Promethea and her caduceus are always drawn in the normal way not painted as on the cover.
Literally this refers to Sophie and Promethea meeting their physical fathers in this issue but Fatherland also means the land of one's ancestors or one's native country and it is in this context that it was used in Germany during the First World War and later by Hitler in World War II.
Even though Crowley doesn't appear in this issue Fatherland could also be taken as a reference to the magazine that was one of his main sources of income in 1915.

 Mystery Guide - Fatherland by Robert Harris   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Fatherland is a fine example of the "alternate history" novel, where the action is set in a past or present that might have been, if things had gone slightly differently.
Eventually, with the help of an American journalist, he begins to learn things about the Nazi regime that are truly incendiary (although in our reality we have known about them for fifty years or so).

 MediaCircus.net: Fatherland Movie Review by Anthony Leong
And then there is Robert Harris' best-selling novel from 1992, "Fatherland", which formed the basis for one of the few films of the alternate history genre, an HBO movie of the same name from 1994.
Unfortunately, "Fatherland" is one of those films that fail to capture the essence of the original book, eschewing much of the meticulous historical, social, and political detail to create a poorly paced film that narrowly keeps its focus as a strict murder mystery.
In addition, the moralizing in the big-budget "Fatherland" is often spoon-fed in a heavy-handed manner (particularly some banal dialogue that Hauer utters), compared to the approach of the much more thrifty "It Happened Here", in which the script which gives the audience enough credit to 'read between the lines'.

 First World War.com - Encyclopedia - Fatherland Party
Formed towards the close of 1917 in clear and alarmed response to the high profile Reichstag Peace Resolution debated in July that year, the German Fatherland Party - Vaterlandspartei - represented a concerted effort by right-wing militarists to ensure continued support for the government's prosecution of the war.
That the government was actually presided over by leading military figures, in the guise of the Third Supreme Command's Paul von Hindenburg and (more to the point) Erich Ludendorff, wholly suited many of the Fatherland Party's conservative (and usually militaristic) members.
The word is derived from an old German word for "catapult".

After the public manifesto of the Duke of Brunswick in the name of the powers in coalition against France (25 July, 1792) and the Assembly's declaration of "Fatherland in danger" there came petitions for the deposition of the king, who was accused of being in communication with foreign rulers.
Aulard was the first to recognize that the idea of honouring the fatherland, which had its origin in the festival of the Federation in 1790 gave rise to successive cults.

The Fatherland Front has paid due attention to the Bulgarian national church, giving the necessary assistance for its canonic organization, which has helped it put an end to the schism and restore its relations with all Orthodox churches.
The separation between church and state, which the Fatherland Front provides for in its programme in compliance with the principle of freedom of conscience and religious creed, has been dictated by the belief that it will enhance the national character of the Bulgarian church, enabling the clergy to serve the people faithfully.

 Amazon.com: Forgotten Fatherland: The Search for Elisabeth Nietzsche: Books: Ben MacIntyre   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In 1886 Elisabeth Nietzsche, the bigoted, imperious sister of the famous philosopher, founded a "racially pure" colony in Paraguay together with her husband, anti-Semitic agitator Bernhard Forster, and a band of fair-skinned fellow Germans.
Laced with mordant irony, Macintyre's brilliant piece of investigative journalism adds weight to the view, shared by many scholars, that the Nazis' use of Nietzsche's ideas to justify their evil deeds and doctrines was a perversion of his thought.
In 1886, Nietzsche's sister, Elisabeth, together with her husband, Bernhard Foerster, and 14 German families, founded a colony in Paraguay that they christened "Nueva Germania." Their purpose was to escape a fatherland they believed to be in serious decline and to live in a place where their beliefs--anti-Semitism, vegetarianism, nationalism, and Lutheranism--could flourish.

In December 1945, a conference of foreign ministers of the United States, Britain, and the Soviet Union theoretically allocated two seats to the newly consolidated opposition BANU in the Bulgarian Council of Ministers, but BANU leaders demanded an immediate national election and removal of communist ministers.
Because the BANU was now a unified party with substantial political backing, these demands created a governmental stalemate with the Fatherland Front for one year.
In 1948 the Fatherland Front was reorganized into an official worker-peasant alliance in accordance with Cominform policy.

 FATHERLAND
Europe is known as Germania and opens its borders to American journalists, hoping to line up the U.S. as an ally against Russia.
While many people may not think of Robert Harris’ best-selling novel Fatherland as science fiction, it definitely is. After all, its alternate universe theme based on the question "what if Hitler had won WWII?" is the staple diet of many a sci-fi novel, perhaps most notably Philip K. Dick’s The Man In The High Castle.
Whereas Dick explored his favourite hang-up of "what is reality?" in The Man In The High Castle, Harris’ Fatherland is perhaps the best invocation of what it would have been like to live in a Europe conquered by the Nazis.
