In the new episode of our "Ask Kali" series, we address MT White's remarks and questions on the subject of Stoicism and peculiar attitude contemporary psychologists hold towards what is considered to be "ideology of masculinity". Whereas the very fact that American Psychologists Association can indulge into such semantic nonsense as defining "masculinity" - or even "masculinities" - as ideology rather calls for the application of flame thrower, than that of the rational argument, we, as rational creatures, cannot help but try to argue the point instead.
Category: Ask Kali
Welcome to Kali Tribune. During the course of six years we steadily engaged with our reader’s questions and comments about the range of topics from metaphysics to common political issues of the day we are continuously addressing. In the latter half of 2020 we decided to start a podcast that was meant to deal with more complex questions and address them in the systematical way.
Here we announce that this podcast will become a permanent feature of KT which all new comers can find in the “Ask Kali” section.
No content will be restricted and remains as free as your will and ability to back it.
However, this also means that we are for the first time tying the content we are publishing with the requirement of compensation.
If we are to continue this project and, even more, improve it, there will have to be a modicum of engagement on behalf of our readers. Therefore, the questions eligible to be treated at length in Q&A podcast, will have to be followed by donation whose amount is completely at the discretion of the reader. This doesn’t apply to our Patreon supporters. Also it doesn’t mean that answer to a question or a comment is predicated upon financial support. Comments section remains as it was, only the questions that require an article, essay or podcast size discussion will be treated this way.
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.
As we received quite a lot of question and none of them an easy one, we'll need more than one podcast to provide answers. In this one, we pick two easiest ones: what is Ego and what was Rene Guenon's charge against psychoanalysis. These two subjects are not unrelated and can be treated quite similarly from the metaphysical perspective which encompasses what is usually understood as purely psychological set of problems. We explain how Ego can be a metaphysical principle, why it is in fact the most precise expression of what is meant by elementary material particle, how it relates to time and why it is by its very nature destructive towards the past. Finally, we give some everyday examples of Ego-principle working in our day and age, especially as a conditio sine qua non of popular culture and entertainment.
As for Guenon's verdict on psychoanalysis, we explain his method and approach, as well as why he did consider it to be a crypto-diabolic practice.
To all Kali Tribune readers - we are, unfortunately, making a bit of a pause in publishing that could last to up to two weeks, due to external circumstances. We'll do our best to prove ourselves wrong and manage to publish something in the meantime, but its not something we could promise.
So use we'll use this period to make it up to you by accumulating your questions :
Please, think hard and try to formulate your questions in the comments section, so we can, when this period is over, have an exhaustive answers sessions in podcast and, hopefully, written form.

Luana the Truther found herself in the bind. She wants change to happen. And it doesn't happen, no matter what amount of information she ingests. What is she to do? Meditate? Scream? Surf the web in heroic fervor? No. She asked Kali for advice. KT's Department of Channeling the Archons and loading spherical objects in little triangular holes invoked the Goddess to offer advice, Girrrrrrrl to girl.
