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.

From Atlantic to Black Sea via Adriatic, we bring you another Luminar Podcat hosted by Deirdre and joined by Mihai and yours truly. Wide range of subjects are covered - from rampaging illiteracy amongst the young to the answer to question: how illusion can be real. In the meantime, we don't neglect to address standard KT subjects: memes and mass scale Internet based occultism, inversion of traditional metaphysical notions, synchronicity and few other light talking points.
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.
A perspective we could, albeit quite loosely, denote as “East European viewpoint” is to a large extent absent from, mostly anglophone, internet media and internet mediated intellectual scene. So how does East Europe defend from what we on KT call "politics of dissolution"? Come and see ...
"How you identify?" "Oh, I identify as ..." If you find this Q&A form peculiar, moreover, if you already noticed how it pervades the conversations, replacing the traditional "Who are you?" and "I am ...", invest some of your time into KT's analysis of the strange cause that just could be underlying this novel, yet only seemingly insignificant, nuance in the form of Internet mediated conversations. It just might cast a peculiar new light on real motives why people seek identitarian movements, conspiracy theories and serial religious conversions.
As internet is pulsing with gloomy stories about coming censorship, especially to step upon those nodes wailing about "white genocide", Kali Tribune offers an opinion on the matter, based on the quite real, albeit probably not white enough, genocides from the recent past. Also, we touch upon globalist policies that are seldom mentioned outside the conspiracist circles, but are non the less real and also, seemingly paradoxically, quite apt to be named genocidal themselves. Finally, we discuss the problem of combating narrative with the truth and difficulties that come with it, making censorship perhaps the most viable option for some corners of the internet.
In the second part of the analysis of the phenomenon of synchronicity, we proceed to compare it with what was traditionally understood as correspondence between man and the world. The synchronicity appears to be a veritable inversion of this relation with rather sinister consequences.
"I identify as ... white, Pagan, pine tree, pink unicorn ... who are you to judge me!!!?" Is this statement merely a parody of contemporary vogue or does it indicate to a deeper truth? In this podcast we provide a sketch of the second option - we argue that notion of 'identity' applied by movements as Alt Right, as well as the establishment promulgated political correctness, is in fact a multifaceted attempt to reduce oneself and one's belonging to nothing. Or, if we are to be generous, to at least prepare oneself to permanent process of identification quite akin to metaphysical police interrogation; an endless session of self inflicted torture.
Also, we briefly dwell on the metaphysics of identity of Classical German Idealism and some of the ominous tendencies already present in this monumental spiritual movement.
You can't have a good scrap without our old friend A.D. commenting on it. In this video we interpret some of Dugin's musings on the significance of the Charlottesville event and the significant presence of his own American followers in the thick of the action.
