In this podcast we provide the exposition of traditional notion of evil as privation, with the customary KT spin: as contemporary intellectual climate tends to reject the old fashioned metaphysics of evil - where evil is just an addendum to the metaphysics of good - because it is, supposedly, inadequate to explain the "horrors of 20th Century", we introduce two real life examples of evil people to illustrate just how deep into depravity the seemingly innocuous act of privation can go.
When talking about the ways in which Christianity was infused into ancient world and the ways in which it preserved it, or, rather, maintained its continuity all the way to our day and age, we tended to focus on intellectual profusion of Christian Revelation into the legacy of great pre-Christian metaphysical tradition. This time around we present less intellectual, but rather quite literal demonstration of the common ground upon which the continuity of ages is being preserved to our day. This is the premiere of the freshly formed Kali Tribune's Ministry for Archaeological Affairs and Anti-Antichrist Measures video material, apologizes for bad audio at few places due to wind.
In the third part of his series of essays, Mihai provides us with the exposition of traditional Christian outlook to dogma and its role in ascetic life, a qualification rarely pointed out today, as dogmatic seems to have become a subject of endless discussions instead of the guideline to spiritual life.
In the second part of our Q&A session we answer to questions about what is ethnicity (or people) and can it be defined, whereas Christian dictum of turning the other cheek is at odds with historical reality, why the political community should have origin that its member cannot re-create, how Internet based Right could just be a homosexual grooming operation and much, much more. Also we provide some thoughts on Schopenhauer and the way we discern between what is useful and what is superfluous for the kind of philosophy we practice on KT.
In the second part of his series of essays, Mihai puts forward one of the most important subjects one could think of, although it occurs surprisingly rarely: that of memory and the struggle between oblivion and recollection. In the Christian Tradition the faculty of memory is being traditionally understood as a sort of backdoor for the divine influence - aptly so, because we tend to forget about having it throughout our daily lives - and "thief in the night" rarely enters the house through the front door. Mihai draws our attention to some traditional notions about memory as such and the nature of its object and then proceed to explain why the proper use of this faculty is essential for overcoming the perils posed by essential flaws in human nature.
