Power of Autism/Autism of Power

 Recently, young Swedish girl Greta Thunberg (15) addressed the big wigs at Davos Summit, reiterating the standard Doomsday predictions about the end of the world that is due to come down in a few years, "IF WE DON'T ACT NOW!!!". Of course, she has been presented as a courageous child speaking "truth" to power, although one must note that by some strange coincidence this was exactly what those in power speak themselves. The affair would be just a side note in the story of communist like system of sustainable development propaganda, where "innocents" (read: "simpletons) like children or tribesman in bizarre costumes "spontaneously" address comrades in the transnational comity asking them to "act now" as if this is not what bigwigs themselves propagate from the late Sixties onwards, if it wasn't for a notable novelty: Greta Thunberg is an autistic child or, at least, she is "on the autistic spectrum". In this video we'll explore the implications of putting severely mentally and psychologically disabled child to serve as a benchmark of excellence for other children and a new model "holy fool" employed to sell a rather devious political agenda.

Ad Barbaris

We interrupt the practice of publishing exclusively our original content and nick the extract from the book length series of interviews Cardinal Robert Sarah gave to French author Nicholas Diat. Although, in religious matters, we rarely address the problems of contemporary Church directly, prefering instead to bring out the positive content of Christian Tradition and simultaneously address the proverbial signs of the times as we see them in accordance with our mainly philosophical expertise, this time around we cannot pass on the opportunity to express admiration for a man who does both of these things with clarity that we would be hard pressed to match, even from our comfortable, marginal, position of much freedom and zero influence. As the text is multilayered and at few points Cardinal's wording is especially succint in addressing some of the ills we've been writing of at length, readers can expect commentary to follow.

Basic Notions of Metaphysics: On Being One and One Being

When someone says that being and one are convertible, what does this mean? In this podcast we'll explicate some of the distinctive qualities of this distinct indivisibility and undivided distinction. Also, we address the error of understanding explication of oneness as reduction to mathematical or physical unit, quite alien to traditional thought, and proneness of contemporary "back to origins" thinkers to perpetuating it especially when they're explicitly trying to refute it. We demonstrate how somewhat natural temptation to find one, indivisible and comprehensive historical point from which all the ills of our times can be explained is utterly in opposition to the One that transcends determinations and is the proper origin of time and what it brings forth.

Luminar Podcast: Splash of Civilizations

In this iteration of Luminar Podcast, I join Deirdre to discuss the meme-based mass murder in Christchurch, Islam in media as opposed to Islam in reality, difference between genuine - albeit not automatically true - religion and its simulacrum, Wahhabism, the reality of ethnicity and other light subjects.

Feeding of the Troll: Virtual Reality and Terrorism

In our previous work we pointed out the emerging process of transition of the fringe towards the center. The fringe, we claimed, be it political, intellectual or otherwise during the last few years transformed in the potential mainstream. The circumstances of mass murder in Christchurch, New Zealand of March 15th and manifesto left by pepetrator incite us to revisit the subject.

Basic Notions of Metaphysics: Transcendentals

In this podcast we investigate the Medieval notion of "transcendentals", an underlying and all pervading principle of Sacra Doctrina and philosophy of Middle Ages that was nevertheless rarely in the focus of contemporary scholarship. The doctrine of transcendentals is one of those teachings that are so common and obvious that one has trouble noticing it, similarly as we have trouble noticing air that we're breathing.

Faust Complex: Young Hegelians and the Theology of Atheism

Body of ideas brought forth in the early to mid 19th Century Germany by the group of radicals summed up under the moniker "young (or:'left') Hegelians" enacted an enormous influence on both 20th Century and our current time, in the guise of totalitarian political ideas and practices. What is somewhat neglected by interprets is the fact that Young Hegelians first and foremost were a movement inspired and even led by radical theologians; whereas contemporary public opinion on Marxism, anarchism and even Nazism tends to comprehend these movements to be as far removed from theology and metaphysics, i.e. as a political reaction to historical reality, they are originally anything but. They, in effect, stem from an attempt to liberate humanity from religion in general and Christianity in particular, based on certain peculiar ideas that are religious in themselves.

Miscellanea: Intolerance of Eternity

Immortality is not such a tall order as it may seem at the first glance. The situation in which man can claim the right to become a woman and at the same time cannot affirm his right to exist for eternity is in fact quite the recent occurrence, as we shall see in the new KT Miscellanea.
