Theology of Progress: Can Six Years Olds Participate in the Divine Life of Democracy?

Cambridge political scientist claims that six years olds should be granted the right to vote and The Guardian journalist steps in to qualify what he means. An ample opportunity for us on KT to illustrate what we mean when we differentiate between democracy understood as politeia and democracy revered as God. In tow we bring much more, of course: totalitarian mindset and fluffy rhetoric, doubtful quality of higher learning, children psychology, obsession about population reduction as the mainstay of ruling European ideology and other worthwhile points. All this to point out how with Kali Tribune even reading The Guardian column can be a rewarding experience.

Elements of the Politics of Dissolution: On Destructive Purpose of Homosexual Marriage

Good deal of people used to wave off homosexual "marriage" as annoying but essentially harmless absurdity of our age, not so different from other excesses of indifferent freedom at the root of contemporary societies. However, is it really so? In this video we examine what the origin of political community (politeia) really is and point out that it is in fact directly, and quite obviously, subverted by the idea of "identiarian" or "homosexual marriage"; moreover, once understood, equating of normal and homosexual sexuality appears to be a direct and unequivocal strike at the root of communal life to such an extent that one has to wonder why so many ink has to be spilled arguing about something so strikingly obvious.

As is customary on KT, we employ the help of classical thinkers: we base our analysis on Thomas Aquinas' commentary on Aristotle's definition of origin of the society from the first book of his Politics.

Dissolving Faces: EU and Frankenstein Democracy

Nowadays dissident voices in Europe are squarely put on the right of political spectrum. However, we on KT tend to see the entirety of this spectrum as not very well useful in the face of the threat that is more or less vaguely sensed but rarely clearly defined. Here we'll provide a modest contribution to clarifying its nature by using kindergarten method: displaying its face(s) in pictures.

Let us face the many faces of the politics of dissolution.

From Immigrants to Migrants: Spell of Misspelling

What's the difference between immigrant and migrant? Well, for one thing, no one ever heard about birds immigration while birds migration is a quite natural phenomenon. In this podcast we point out subtle shifts of meaning, such as this, in the political terminology, symptomatic in sustainable development programmes, one of which is by now, for mostly the wrong reasons, notorious UN's Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migrationabout to be presented for signing on behalf of UN member states on December, 11. in Morocco.

System Shock: Alternative Media, Censorship and Systematization

We're taking a brief look back into the world of alternative media, reason being recent wave of removing some alt media content creators from social networks and hosting platforms.

We argue that, although ideological censorship is omnipresent and indiscriminate - if you dare to discriminate, of course - taking down of alternative media would be not only small loss, but quite an opportunity for their creators to regain their grip on reality.

Alt media are text book example of the creation of virtual identities that are defended with almost servo mechanism efficiency by their owners, as we demonstrate with some examples from personal experience in this shady, virtual space.

Also, we point out the dialectical fulfillment both ideological mainstream and its Russian influenced alternative find in their hateful embrace.

We conclude with some remarks in "what's to be done?" department, pointing out to real life challenges we can take on which are far more difficult and, consequently, fulfilling, to oppose the mental engineering we're all being exposed to.

Irish Troubles 2.0: A Discussion With Deirdre of Luminar Podcast

Kali Tribune is proud to present the first entry into podcasting universe of our Irish friend Deirdre and her newly setup Luminar Podcast. In this talk we cover Irish repeal of 8th Constitutional amendment, i.e. what is commonly being called "abortion referendum" and questions stemming thereof: sustainable development and technocratic micromanagement in Ireland, the rejection of history and continuity of life, unique position of Ireland in EU project and other not so happy subjects.

Not to be missed. You don't get to hear women's voice on KT that often, after all. Let alone with Donegal accent ...

Left vs. Right and the Question of Rationality

We delve into question of curious ability of Leftist intellectuals to circumvent the massive crimes of their political favorites and still have debates with their opponents without this ever becoming an issue.

Is this accidental or is it due to inability of the political Right and Center to employ the right arguments?

Or is it something deeper than that?

KT, of course, opts for the third option.

Windswept Podcast: Nationalism and Politics of Dissolution

In this Windswept Podcast, we return to hair splitting over terminology. Is nationalism really what most people think it is or is it a counterfeit of deeper reality, subverting its proper expressions? Is a "surge in nationalism" always the same thing as a "surge in local solidarity" or "love of one's home"? And what does it all mean in opposition to prevalent technocratic governance system of supra-national entities?

These and, other questions, as well as some World Cup commentary very atypical for KT, get their fair treatment in the following.

Beyond the Pale: The Morning After of Irish Abortion Referendum

The landslide victory of Irish pro-abortion public vote in recent referendum came not as a surprise because it was victory, but because it was more or less a public acclamation - a true voice of the people, one might say.

In this podcast we analyze the meaning of this event in the global context and how it stems from peculiar state of mind now prevalent in the West, but very easily observable in Ireland itself: a mentality of indifference.
