From Bastards to Imbeciles, Confidentially: Duginist Alt Media as an Exemplar of Faking the Reality

In this video we return to the problem faking reality by media, this time around the alternative ones. We'll analyze the CIA document "Yugoslavia Transformed", that is: the assessment on future of Yugoslavia, written and submitted on 18th October 1990, and referenced by exceptionally dumb (or devious) contributor on former main Duginist outpost Katehon. We demonstrate how collaborating documents can be used as "proofs" for the thesis in fact contradicting their content, on condition that reader doesn't actually read them, but take the authors "reference" as sufficient in itself.

The Invisible Empire: Introduction to Alexander Dugin’s “Foundations of Geopolitics”, pt. 2

In the second part of the series on Alexander Dugin's Foundations of Geopolitics we analyze the political program of creating the "Empire of empires" and why it excels in being the ultimate exercise in nihilism, taking the lead into contest for the most ominous globalization project of our times, although it could very well remain just an image in the head of its author and his followers.

Stinking Narratives: Geopolitics as Means of Dehumanization

In this video we further address the problem of somewhat sadomasochist nature of "alternative narratives" about international politics that are based on geopolitical interpretation and uncritical enmity towards the West - coming, ironically, almost entirely from the Westerners themselves.

Not so Stubborn Facts and Quite Stubborn Narratives: The Worst Take on War in Yugoslavia Ever

Narrative this ... narrative that. Getting kind a tiresome, isn't it? Well, Kali Tribune never tires of pointing out that narratives cannot be true or false, only tiresome or, in certain instances, dangerous. Here we'll prove this point again by dissecting probably the worst to date exposition on war in Yugoslavia (and competition is indeed strong). The author, notably starting from declarative extreme empiricist position, goes on to prove that what he sees as present was also the past. And in the process gets just about everything wrong in unintentionally comical fashion. In conclusion to the brief exposition of what actually happened in the early Nineties in this ill fated region, we point out an ominous tendency of amateur/alternative research to fit itself into quite an Orwellian mold of transforming the past into virtual reality by making it the mirror image of the present. And all of this supposedly based on "stubborn facts".

Btw. you'll also learn a Croatian word for "Boeing". Definitely not to be missed.

Summer in Cosmopolis: Some Remarks and Announcements

There will be some new paths Kali Tribune will traverse in the future. Hereby we present the outlines and express gratitude to our supporters. We provide some introductory remarks on memetics, elephant in the room we call Russian or Russia influenced media, the nature of knowledge and illusion of being know-it-all.

The Invisible Empire: Introduction to Alexander Dugin’s “Foundations of Geopolitics”, pt. 1

We commence the analysis of the core political and strategic ideas of Alexander Dugin as laid out in his main work “Foundations of Geopolitics – Geopolitical Future of Russia”, based on a close reading of the text. In this segment we explain mainly the proverbial foundations or “the principal duality” of Dugin’s megalomaniac eschatology falsely posing as, and today curiously popular, political science stressing the role of geography. This is the first close reading analysis of the foundational neo-Eurasianist text in the English language. Give it a look, we guarantee you won’t like it if you are busy cheering for Russia to defeat the “globalists”. But maybe, if you are displaying some symptoms of Duginitis chronica in its early stages, it could just make you re-think what you’re getting yourself into.

Clueless in Washington: “Crippled Epistemology” of the Mainstream Academic Research on Alt Media

Media approach to reality is flawed by its very nature, as we pointed out numerous time on Kali Tribune. Yet, apparently, it is not as flawed as approach of what nowadays passes for science. In this video, we analyze an attempt on behalf of American scientist to make sense of alt media and take her utter failure in this endeavor as a great illustration of what is wrong both in mainstream and alt media reality bubbles.
