Mihai Marinescu revisits Orwell's "1984" and provides us with the exposition of still darker undertones present in this work, popular perhaps for all the wrong reasons. Orwell proposed no antidotes - but could it be that he never detected the essence of the poison itself? As Mihai demonstrates, the real horror of "1984" does not lay in the depiction of totalitarian monstrosity, as is customary understood. It is in the soul of its hero doomed to encounter his own reflection in the eye of executioner.
With seven years delay, Kali Tribune publishes the review of Richard Dawkin’s “God Delusion”, Croatian edition. Editor is therefore obliged to apologize. The reason being he never could read through Dawkin’s “devastating attack on religion” further from the first half of the book. It was not however due to being devastated, but rather of being bored. Well, now we rectify the historical injustice by publishing the review done by Nenad Perković who had courageously put historical duty of Dawkin’s reviewer before incentive to take a nap. Note to atheists: stick to Nietzsche. As Lucifer always used to say: “If you don’t jump, you won’t do the Fall”. Abyss is always at hand, give it a jump. You don’t need Dawkins banana skin to aid your slip. Or you prefer when you can say: “oops!”
