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.

Penultimate Times Blues: Nostalgia as Disclosure of Truth

With the help of KT's Department of Eastern European Affairs and Keeping Asses in the Armchairs even nostalgia can reveal some important truths. The dissolution of Communism was not the only catastrophe that befell this peculiar part of the world. Let us inspect some more subtle and more sinister processes that slipped through in the wake of it and were anticipated by ill fated generation whose youth was forfeit at the dawn of the "New World Order". We on KT are hell bent on redeeming that lost time - so we invite you to sink with us in the disclosure only true nostalgia can provide ...

Idiots Cast in Porcelain: On “Liberals” and Their Place in Cosmos

Expressions "liberal" and "liberalism" are pejoratives often offering meanings far different from what those words originally meant.

In this podcast we will attempt to remedy that by taking this, for the most part American, notion and apply to it Plato's method of describing the mental and political attitude by analyzing the type of man indulging it.

Unfortunately, we are forced to conclude that Plato's notion of the worse kind of man - the tyrant - doesn't hold the candle to tedious little critter we have to deal with here.

The Weight of the World: Metaphysical Origin of Seriousness

Being "world-weary", being serious, being aware of the "weight of things" ... what those various states of being human have in common? In this podcast we'll attempt to answer this question from the standpoint of the Medieval thinker and point out how fresh and readily applicable this standpoint is for our own day and age; a day and age where world has not become lighter just because it grew superficial.

Windswept Podcast: Forgiveness as a Form of Knowledge

KT is hardly an online pulpit, yet in this podcast we won't be able to avoid coming dangerously close to moralizing. But, no worries ... we analyze the peculiar nature of forgiveness of trespasses of others as a way of acquiring knowledge and inability to perform it as a sure slippery slope into delusion of knowledge - something that happens all too often to people embracing the postmodern societies and their politics of dissolution by rejecting their own roots and, consequently, their own finite existence.

What’s to be Done: On Holy Indifference Pt.1

How to beat discrepancies of modern living: half of your life you are corporate drone, waiter or construction worker and the other half you might just be striving for sainthood. Yet, as Mihai Marinescu tells us in this two part Eastern European self-help manual for aspiring rebels against the modern world, this is impossible. Then, what am I to do, one might ask? Well, gird yourselves with focus and patience and take a dip in this long and poignant analysis. We won't spoil too much for you if we give answer in advance: You can do what you can.

Sounds simple? It is anything but.
